Publisher's Summary

Growing up, Jill Garrison never daydreamed about having the perfect wedding. Instead, she dreamt about having a baby. Boy or girl, it didn't matter. Unfortunately, her fiancé can't have children. Determined to realize her lifelong dream of having a baby, Jill spends years searching for a company (CryoCorp) that provides high-quality donor sperm.

Everything is right in Jill's world until her wedding day, when her fiancé leaves her at the altar to be humiliated before friends and family. She doesn't waste any time moving from New York City to California to start over. And she keeps her appointment with CryoCorp. She may never have the wedding or the husband, but nothing is going to stop her from having a baby. She's tired of everyone telling her what to do. The baby she's carrying is hers and hers alone. Nobody can take that away from her. Or can they?

glad this was cheap, really annoying narration

Should have listened to the sample, my mistake. Really would have been mad if I had wasted a credit on this, got it on the cheap sale. The story itself wasn't so bad, predictable but sometimes I'm in the mood for a romance like this one. But the narration was so annoying I could hardly finish it. Every voice had some kind of gravelly note to it, and the voice of the little girl I could hardly stand at all. Will never listen to another book by this narrator. Too bad as the story itself was ok.

Cute story, hard listen.

The Narrators voice is whiny which is distracting to the story. cute story in General, and the story itself is what kept me listening. Just a bit on the predictable side.

chicklit for real Jill gets and eye opener

Jill never expected to work so hard for the one thing in life she wanted. She never expected to have that one thing belong half to someone else. She never expected that someone else to want to be so much a part of her life. She never expected her life to go the way that it was going. Now she has a dream, a wish, a hope, and a pray all at her feet.

There were no real standout points for me in the audio, narration, or even the story. It was something to pass the time and enjoy a story while doing it.

Doesn't seem like a professional wrote it

Any additional comments?

The story was cute...it just seemed like it was written by an amateur....The dialog was so cheesy and the characters didn't' seem real. I can't put my finger on it but it reminded me a lot of the stories on the fan-fiction sites or on other amateur writing sites.

Wonderful Story full of Surprises

What made the experience of listening to Having My Baby the most enjoyable?

The characters were unusual, likable and real and the Hero's family added a lot to the appeal.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that Jill got a good deal in the end. I felt she deserved it.

What didn’t you like about Sarah Drew’s performance?

Sorry but the performance was AWFUL. First narrator that nearly had me stop listening. Her Lexi voice grated on my nerves. She gets so shrill at times.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I had to force myself to finish, which is unusual. Especially when Lexi spoke.

Any additional comments?

Great Author but the Audiobook was ruined for me by the Narrator.
