Blog Tour & Review ~ Baby Maker by P. Dangelico

Baby Maker
by P. Dangelico
Publication Date: February 20th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Stella Donovan’s biological clock is a ticking time bomb.

The successful financial manager has spent her adult life building a career and neglecting her personal life. Problem is, she doesn’t believe in marriage. Not after watching her mother be treated like garbage by her father. Nope, marriage is not for her. All she wants is a baby. All she needs is a man to agree to her terms.

Dane Wylder, recently retired NFL tight end and future Hall of Famer, wants a baby.

Naturally, marriage is off the table. He’s not the marrying type. Women are great––as long as they’re trying to get into his bed and not his heart. But after years of living only for himself, he’s ready to be a father.

Sparks fly when a successful financial manager and a legendary football player enter into a legal agreement to have a kid together. They planned on everything––they just didn’t plan on each other.

Grabbing the pot of freshly brewed coffee from the coffee maker, he stares into the pot then drinks from it. I don’t bother to tell him it’s decaf. Throat working as he swallows, he holds up his index finger.

I’ve got a finger for him, the middle one.

“I don’t know what’s gotten into you but I’ve had enough.” He continues drinking. “And word of caution, if you come back to New York and continue to treat me like I’m cattle, a possession, you will damage this friendship beyond repair.”

He places the pot down, his eyes downcast as he leans on the counter for support. “I’m sorry…I was a real asshole last night and––”

“Last night?!” I shout. “How about for the past week.”

“Well you’re not helpin’ the situation!” he shouts back, his eyes sparking, then winces again.

My jaw hangs in disbelief. He can’t be serious. Is he really blaming me?

“The hell are you talking about? You’re blaming me? Me?! You’ve been unbearable––when you’ve been around, that is. Usually you’re running in the opposite direction. But somehow in your twisted little male peanut sized brain, it’s my fault?!”

“Yes, goddamit! Dancin’––smilin’ at that fucking cowboy!” His hand slashes through the air as if he’s indicating to someone in the corner. The veins near his temple pop up. Eyes impossibly wide, he advances on me, stopping a mere foot away. “You never smile at me like that!”

Huh? “What does that have to do with anything?!”

“Because I’m jealous! Okay! And you’ve made it very clear you’re not attracted to me but all I can think about is this!”

He’s on me before I can blink, arms crushing me to him, kissing me like I hold the last breath of air on the planet and he means to steal it.

A beat later he stops. His lips against mine he murmurs, “Kiss me back…please kiss me back.”


Stella Donovan has a plan and when she sets her mind to do something, she'll do whatever to takes to achieve it. So now that she's decided she wants to have a baby, there is nothing that will stand in her way.

Dane Wylder is the player or players, or at least that's what the media says. But lately he's been feeling like somethings missing. The thought of love, marriage, and white picket fences don't appeal to him, but having a child certainly does.

Neither want a relationship, so this co-parenting sounds ideal. It's all very business like. But somewhere along the way feelings start to develop that neither saw coming.

Will they still continue fighting their attraction? Or will they brings their walls down and embrace the relationship neither expected?

Baby Maker is a fun, sexy, swoon-worthy love story that will keep the reader captivated with it's witty banter, slow burning passion, and undeniable attraction.

I adore how strong and independent Stella is and isn't afraid to stand up for what she believes in. She'll speak her mind and won't back down from a fright. Her passion and determination is endearing, but what I love best is her heart. She's the type of person that loves her family and friends and will always be there for them no matter what.

Dane may seem like the ultimate player, but there is more to him than appearances. Sure he's been around, but he also gives back to the community every chance he gets. He's always there for his family and friends night or day. He's got a heart of gold.

I really enjoyed watching Stella and Dane's relationship grow from nothing to everything. Their constant fighting of their immense attraction is intriguing and when they stop fighting... wow! I love how Stella tries to push Dane away, but he doesn't give up. Even when he messes up, he knows he'll never find a gem like Stella again. She's his everything. And when Stella finally again, she'll fight for him just as much.

If you are looking for a something sweet, funny, and oh so sexy, then I highly recommend you pick up Baby Maker. Let Dane and Stella take you on a journey that will have you laughing, crying, and setting on the edge of your seat watching to see what will happen next.

Meet P. Dangelico

Dangelico loves romance in all forms, cuddly creatures (four legged and two), really bloody sexy pulp, the NY Jets (although she’s reconsidering after this season), and to while away the day at the barn (apparently she does her best thinking shoveling horse crap). What she’s not enamored with is referring to herself in the third person and social media so don’t expect her to get on Twitter anytime soon. Oh, and although she was born in Italy, she’s been Jersey Strong since she turned six.
