An interesting premise which could have been amazing, but simply wasn't. Prepare yourselves for horribly cheesy dialogue and a large dose of suspension of belief.
And that's really all I have to say about that...

Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for my e-copy in exchange for an honest review.

It took me longer than usual to read so I think that’s a good indication of how exciting it is. It deserves 3 stars because many fans of general fiction will love it, but I’ve already read much more gripping fiction stories this year.
Roz was broke and pregnant. She knew she couldn't provide the best for her child. So, she went online and tried to find the perfect parents who'd adopt her child for money. And it turned out to be a celebrity couple. Actors Daniel and Sheridan in America seemed to be the best choice, and talks with them made her feel Sheridan would be the perfect mother. But was she?
