Propositioning the Playboy
The Blue Room Book 2
by JM Stewart
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Rule #1: Don't fall in love. Rule #2...see rule #1...
Grace Williams doesn't need a hero. She can take care of herself, thank you very much. Surviving foster care and becoming a respected scientist certainly taught her how. Now, she's finally ready to do something for herself and have a baby. All she'll need is a genetically blessed donor who won't get any ideas in his head about sticking around after the job's done. And she has the perfect gorgeous, commitment-phobic donor in mind.
Liam McNamara doesn't want a relationship. Being abandoned by his mother at a young age and his failed marriage cured him of any romantic notions he might've had. But when his best friend's sexy older sister asks him for a favor, he can't say no. And if he manages to give her a few--or a few hundred--orgasms in the process? All the better. It's a winning proposition all the way around.
It's not long before their best laid plans are blown out of the water by the last thing either of them expected to get out of the deal--genuine feelings. Maybe love isn't such a losing proposition after all...
Easily read as a standalone!
He grunted his agreement. “I’ll do it.” Her mind whirled as she attempted to process his news. Elation fluttered in her chest, warring with a shell-shocked sort of surprise. Hadn’t he told her only yesterday he’d never bring a child into the world unless he was ready to be a dad? “What changed your mind?” He cut another wedge of pancake, this time stuffing the bite into his mouth. “I got to thinking about what you said yesterday. I understand about family and being alone. I’m okay on my own, but you never really have been. Even Jake says so.” She took a moment to grab the second mug from the tray and sipped at the warm tea. “What’s with him and you, anyway? With the guys I date, I expect his over-protective routine. They’re strangers. But you’ve been one of his best friends since you were kids. It’s kind of awful that he lumps you in with everyone else.” “Jake knows you really want a family, that you’re looking for permanent. He also knows I’m not. Like I said yesterday, he wants that for you.” He stabbed a bite of melon and shrugged. As if it were no big deal. “He’s protective of it.” Okay, now he had her attention. Never in all the time she’d known him had Liam ever even hinted his life wasn’t exactly the way he wanted it. Family was a subject he simply didn’t discuss. She took a moment to take another bite of pancake, using the task of chewing and swallowing to think carefully about how to phrase her question. If she was too direct, he’d shut down, the way he always did when the subject came up. “You don’t want a family someday?” “No. But you do. Which is why I decided to do it. I have a request, though.” Her heart hammered. The impassiveness of his expression made it impossible to tell if his request was good or bad. She nodded. “Okay…” He turned his head, pinning her with a direct stare. “I want to do this the old-fashioned way. No doctors, no masturbating into a cup. Draw up a contract if it makes you feel better, but I want you. In my bed.”
