I am struggling a bit with this one.

On the one hand, getting over the dubiousness of the “Love Child” scenario, and yes it is justified in the book as how a woman can go to a sperm bank, couples can use a surrogate, but just what is a single man to do, well use a super secret company to pay a woman to have a child, only you know, said child is made as nature intended so you know, dress it up how you will but it is hardly like a woman going to a sperm bank.

BUT, we will let it go, it is in the blurb.

It is insta lust! Major major major insta lust.

The heroine I just did not get, not sure how old she was, but she has decided that she is just not going to find someone “worthy” to have a child with, or even “worthy” enough to sleep with, so somehow decides, that she will bestow a child and her virginity on a “worthy” man that she finds through super secret company “Love Child” (Btw, it is so super secret, how does anyone find out about it!?) . As she is so good and selfless. Ofc, I am sure the money helped.

Anyway, she was vaguely unlikable for me. Lots of how she is a simple country girl, who knows hard work, she is not like the usual women the hero knows, she is you know, just a simple country girl, who had a thousand siblings to look after, she is so hard working, and so generous in giving her child to a worthy male. Ah, she is just an angel.

There were a couple of times I truly cringed for her tbh. The kitchen scene when he is outside, and then some odd business with a chair!

Ofc, they have the best sex ever, are all proud of themselves as they are obviously pregnant as you know, they had sex like loads and loads and loads.

And super duper in love and pregnant after knowing each other for 0.4573 seconds.

On one hand, it was a bit eye rolly, but it did deliver exactly what it said. You cannot expect more than you have been promised really. So while there were some times I had eye strain from rolling my eyes, I did kind of enjoy it, like candy floss, all sugar and no substance, but is it enjoyable in small doses.
