Previously published as The Baby Arrangement

The arrangement was simple, with only two rules:

Rule #1: Don't fall in love
Rule #2: Refer back to rule one when necessary

I thought I could stick to the rules, but with a girl like Fallon, I should've known those rules were meant to be broken. We've been best friends since we were kids, and she's the only woman I'd

2.5 STARS

I was really looking forward reading this book because the blurb intrigued me, but unfortunately I was a bit disappointed.
The Baby Arrangement is a steamy friends to lovers romance, with a twist. Fallon and Reed have always been best friends, but they’ve also been in love with each other for ages. The problem is that they’re both scared to confess their feelings. But now Reed needs to have a child if he wants to inherit his father’s company, and Fallon seems the perfect candidate to be

I didn't love this one as much as I wanted to. Thank you to the authors for providing me a copy in exchange for a honest review. I'm giving this 2 out of 5 stars.

One of the problems for me was that I didn't fully connect with any of the characters. They felt a little one-dimensional, if that makes any sense. I wanted more focus on their lives outside of this arrangement (and each other). Things like what their hobbies were, more on the other relationships in their lives, etc. If I would have see

**NABC ARC IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW**

The arrangement is simple, with only two rules:

One: Don’t fall in love
Two: Revert back to rule one when necessary


Fallon’s been my best friend my entire life. No matter how much I’m attracted to her though, I know she deserves better than a man who refuses to commit. I saw what happened to my dad when he lost my mom and there’s no way I’m putting myself in that position.

At least, not until my father gives me an ultimatum:

Have a baby...or he’s selling t

Thanks to the previous book I had high expectations with this reading and I was disappointed.
Both Reed and Fallon were immature protagonists, children, lacking personality. Their fears and insecurities had no credible basis, which made the reading slow and boring.

This is a friends to lovers story with a little twist. they must make a baby together without falling in love. the only problem with that is that they are already in love with each other. Both Fallon and Reed try to keep their feelings secret. the only people not aware are the two main characters. I am not sure why they held off for so long. The back and forth seemed forced. One minute they are all over each other and the next minute the whole thing is a mistake. Fallon a

This book was truly amazing. J.L. Beck sure knows how to write a romance!!! The Baby Arrangement had me lost in its pages from the very start. It’s been a long time that I felt a book hit all the high notes for me and this one surely surprised me by doing just that.

Reed and Fallon were best friends and both loved each other immensely. They also both felt something bugger but didn’t dare risk their friendship over the potential of more because they were so scared to lose each other if it didn’t

Time waits for no one. We can either make every second count or allow it to pass by. The Baby Arrangement is a reminder that for every happy ending, there will most certainly be a thread of pain. Fallon and Reed are so smart, they make a mess out of the desires of their hearts. One ultimatum and baby agreement, tests the bonds of friendship as it opens their eyes to love. Full of heart and hope. Forever is only a heartbreak away. Irresistible reading.

Smokin hot read! The Baby Arrangement is a very hot and steamy read. I fell in love with the characters Reed and Fallon right away. JL Beck does not disappoint with this new story.

Under one condition though....he wants a grandchild!! Things soon begin to heat up! Can a friendship remain intact after things heat up? Will Re

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

This was such a wonderful book about best friends that don't seem to be able to admit to themselves how much they love one another beyond just being best friends. And I' m not going to lie...Fallon and Reed kind of gave me a little whiplash with their back and forth feelings.

But in the overall I liked the story-line of this book, very well written. Another successful partnership for J. L. Beck.

This is a sweet love story between two best friends. They have been best friends for a long time, always being there for each other and knowing each other's secrets. Fallon and Reed are meant for each other, they just don't see it, or maybe they do but can't admit it. Reed's father has decided he's tired of watching them dance around each other so he comes up with a plan. A plan that has to happen quick since he has stage four cancer. He tells Reed that he has to have a baby before he will turn ...more

I wasn't totally sure if I would like this story to be honest. To me the friends to lovers theme can be tricky to maneuver if there isn't a lot of decent history between the characters. However, I really loved Reed and Fallons dynamics Bff to a family. They both secretly pine for each other and honestly think nobody else can see it. When it's obvious a push has to be done for the!

Reed has commitment issues and goes through women like tissues, while Fallon, the supportive friend suffers in silence. Finally, Reed's father puts his foot down and presents Reed with an ultimatum, If he wants the family company, he needs to provide a grandchild.

Fallon would do anything for Reed, including sit back and watch him date other women. Things change between Reed and Fallon when Reed’s father throws down an ultimatum. If he wants the family company, he needs to provide a grandchild. Reed knows exactly who he wants to be the mother but getting Fallon to agree, that is going to take ...more

Reed and Fallon have been best friends for years. They are such good friends, neither one wants to ruin their friendship by adding romance or even sex to the mix. Reed's father offers him an ultimatum-a grandchild or he'll sell the family business-and Fallon does what any best friend would do. There's a huge amount of push-pull in this one, admission, denial & the angst of making the right/wrong decision. I liked the way Fallon pushed Reed to admit to feeling something, anything, and how both we ...more

Oh what an amazing story. J.L. Beck is such a fantastic writer and the books are always amazing. This one is no different. I loved Fallon and Reed together. Although, Reed could use a little get my head out of my butt at times he has this amazing personality and protectiveness with of course the alpha male syndrome.

Fallon had loved Reed for as long as she can remember, but they are just friends and now work together. Reed has loved Fallon as long as he can remember, but he's not into commitment and doesn't want to lose her friendship. Reed's dad poses an ultimatum: settle down to have a baby, or the company will be sold off to someone else. What to do?

In a alcohol induced state, Fallon offers to help Reed with his baby dilemma, but quickly tries to backpedal when he seems less than enthused. Could they re

This book is amazing. I absolutely loved it.
Its a story of 2 people who have been best friends forever. They have always loved each other but were too scared to admit it and act on it.
When his father puts a stipulation on him to have a baby or lose the company, Fallon comes up with an amazing plan.
Who better to have Reed’s baby then her?
They already know each other inside and out.
What could go wrong? What could change? What rules are put into place?

'The Baby Arrangement' was a beautiful friends to lovers romance. JL Beck definitely knows how to write a book that enthralls, I couldn't put it down. The story was well written, plot great and the steamy bits were awesome. I'm ready for the next Winston Brother's story.

Fallon and Reed have been best friends forever, both have loved the other since they first met but neither will admit it, to themselves let alone the other. They are there for each other no matter what until Reed needs a baby to
