From Friend to Father

Twin boys, a baby girl and Sarah, their gorgeous mother. It's a dream family. Too bad it doesn't belong to Reece Sandler. Correction. Part of it does belong to him. But he's not ready to be a single father and he needs Sarah Martin more than ever. Funny thing, when he and his late wife asked Sarah to be their surrogate, he never imagined he'd raise that child with her.

"FROM FRIEND TO FATHER" by Tracy Wolff is a well-paced, warmly-told story of two fiery and stubborn people who grow as individuals as their relationship comes together.

Up until about 2/3 of the book I probably would have given it 3, maybe even four stars, but from that part on it went downhill pretty fast.

I'll tell you what I liked about this book:
- Reece (even though he has his faults he's still a good man, loving and has a great sense of humor)
- the scenes with the kids (they are just adorable! And that's me saying that, even though I'm not a big fan of children in books...)
- the chemistry between Reece and Sarah
- the overall concept of the story

Now to the p
I liked this much more than I thought I would. At first I was annoyed by the usually obvious ploy of having Reece say he was attracted to Sarah even when he was married, but Ms. Wolff handled it well. And it did explain the attraction he feels so soon after his wife died.
The problems that infertile couples go through was handled well also - especially Reece's ambivalence about having a child at all. He had issues, not surprisingly, but was good about facing them and talking about them and espec

i was really attracted to the story as read the blub
it was a beutiful story....i liked sarah!...her will power..she craves for love but she hides it
i'm writing this review now whereas i read the book 2 weeks i don't remember hw was
my feelings after reading it......but one thing was sure ,i was happy to read it....really happy!!!
Passable story and romance.
Lots and lots of babies in this book. I did not mind as I haven't read this type of old-fashioned romance in ages, but be prepared for lots of kids in this one. Also, the hero just could not seem to get his act together in the book and I am not sure he will be able to sustain a relationship, so I was not convinced of the HEA but I have to hope because...lots of children here.

Tracy Wolff collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where—and sometimes who—she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince—and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she’d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her ...more
