Direct Deposit

She wanted to make a withdrawal from a sperm bank. He would give all he has to make a direct deposit. 


Family law attorney Maddie Prescott is driven to succeed. A pawn in her parents’ messy divorce, she devoted her career to representing children in court, and when her husband’s early death makes it seem like she can’t have it all, she’s ready to beat the odds by going to a sperm bank. One advantage to single parenthood is that her child will never be a pawn. That, and she’ll never have to deal with sarcastic ladies’ men or liars.

Jack Worth promised to look out for his dying best friend’s wife: a small repayment for someone who once helped an irredeemable bad boy find the path to happiness. So, while Maddie Prescott’s baby plans are questionable, duty and loyalty prompt Jack first to volunteer as the sperm donor...and then to propose a marriage of convenience. And the more he gets to know her, the more this onetime player will see that Maddie is the woman of his dreams, and that the child they will make deserves to be from a direct deposit.

I was lucky enough to be given a copy of Direct Deposit from the author. I have enjoyed Marilyn Baxter's other books and was excited to read Direct Deposit.

I really enjoyed Direct Deposit. It was a fun, fast, sweet and sexy read. Both Maddie and Jack are such strong characters. Honestly Maddie and Jack seemed so opposite from one another at the beginning of the book. It was almost like they couldn't stand to be around one another, except I could feel the underlying attraction between them when they were in the same room together. I loved that when Jack figured out Maddie was going to a sperm bank to get pregnant, his first thought was to offer to be her sperm donor. I also loved the fact he immediately offered marriage when another wrench was thrown in Maddie's path.

I loved Maddie and Jack as a couple. Again while they seemed so different, I felt a connection between them from the beginning. Add in their smoking hot chemistry and you have a great couple. Plus the more time they spent together, the easier it was to tell they each loved one another. I loved their friends were the ones to see both had fallen for the other first. 

Marilyn Baxter writes sweet, sexy stories with heart. Direct Deposit stole my heart from the very beginning and I look forward to reading many more books from Ms. Baxter in the future.
