    Ryder and Summer have been friends for years, best friends. Everything is going smoothly until Summer drops a bombshell on Ryder. She wants a baby and she wants him to be the father. She has it all figured out, until she realises that she doesn't get to call all the shots in this situation. When Ryder takes things into his own hands, startling truths about Summer come to light and he finds he wants to help her now more than ever, but just as friends. Or is it maybe more?

When Ryder takes things into his own hands, startling truths about Summer come to light and he finds he wants to help her now more than ever, but just as friends. Or is it maybe more? A Baby Between Friends had such promise. I really wanted to love it because I love this sort of story. Unfortunately several parts of this book dragged, with lots of internal monologues and then the end just sort of happened. All of a sudden a solid character acted completely out of character and I was like .."what?". I could see what was supposed to happen but it still kind of caught me off guard and not in a good way. The reconciliation between characters happened fast as well. So even though the first three quarters or more of the book went super slow, the last quarter left me dizzy. I think better pacing was necessary to make it more believable. I liked the characters Ryder and Summer and I did like the idea of their love story. It just didn't quite flow the way I would have liked.

    I read A Baby Between Friends in a heartbeat, a few days ago. Summer and Ryder have been friends for a few years. Summer had lost her family a few years before meeting him, and after thinking a lot about it she decided she wanted to start a family of her own, only she needs Ryder’s help to do so. Summer wants a baby, and she’s willing to let Ryder of the hook of the responsibilities that come with being a father just as long as he helps her have her baby.

Summer had lost her family a few years before meeting him, and after thinking a lot about it she decided she wanted to start a family of her own, only she needs Ryder’s help to do so. Summer wants a baby, and she’s willing to let Ryder of the hook of the responsibilities that come with being a father just as long as he helps her have her baby. What she didn’t expect was for Ryder to want those responsibilities, nor did she expect that he would only help her on the condition the child was conceived naturally. Ryder was looking out his best friend, and he saw his added condition as a way to deter her from her decision, he just wasn’t counting on Summer doing anything to have her baby. A Baby Between Friends was a nice book. Summer is strong despite what happened to her in the past, she’s a sweet and caring woman, but she needs to overcome her fears. Ryder is a tough man, he protects those he loves with everything he has, even his own life. I think A Baby Between Friends had pretty much all the qualities to make an awesome story if it weren’t for the pace. The books goes just fine until we get to the end. The whole conclusion of the book and how we come to it was extremely rushed. I wished the author had taken as much time with it as she had developing Ryder and Summer’s relationship, I felt like everything fell apart and then it was all glued together in the blink of an eye, the end. I don’t say A Baby Between Friends was bad book because of it, however. I just wished it was developed more carefully. It still was a lovely story, sweet, steamy at times and heartbreaking at others. It was worth the read.

    No sure. I only finished it because Kathie DeNosky wrote it and if this was a non-romance book I'd give it 4.5-5 stars but as romance I wasn't sure. At times it was slightly cringy and clinical especially when they had 'failed' sex...banging...or whatever....love making. It did have an embarrassing element to it and I like my romance to be like modern fairytales. Maybe Ryder should have just done it in a cup. Also I thought maybe Ryder needed anger management classes or at least take at seat on No sure.

Also I thought maybe Ryder needed anger management classes or at least take at seat on Lane's couch, the fact he ended up killing his foster father in a frenzy so was charged with man slaughter then nearly does the same to another creep. They deserved it but Ryder could be sent down for displaying his uncontrollable temper via gallantry. Also after a few books the old Mariah vs Jacon childbirth bet got a bit boring. Also the brothers betting on the next marriage. Still looking forward to reading the one more, which is TJ seemingly the quietest of the foster brothers. I can't stand Mariah or Jacon so may give it a miss.

    I usually love a book with friends falling in love and this one even had babies, but I just didn’t liked this couple, maybe is because Ryder is acting all fine and suddenly he changes. Anyway, not my favorite book by far. Summer is actually a nice girl and I understand her fears and her reasons for wanting a family, but Ryder was not the best person for her. The couple didn’t showed a lot of sparks and he helped her, but the relationship felt a little bleak for me.

He never even knew she didn’t had a house for Pete sake. Doesn’t sound like best friends to me at all.

    I really wanted to like this book since I' love stories about friends falling in love, but this story didn't execute it very well. I felt it was really rushed, they went from friends to instantly in love, didn't allow for the characters to develop chemistry. I also agree with previous reviews that question their relationship as "bestfriends" it seemed as though they didn't really know one another well enough for it to be believable.

Summer and Ryder have been best friends for a couple of years now, and Summer's been thinking about having a baby for the last couple of months and she's decided who she wants to be the baby's daddy. Yep, her BFF. She's got a few conditions, if he agrees to go through with it, and that would be that they conceive the baby the clinical way and not the with the coming together of the two of them physically, and that she doesn't want his status in their relationship to change in any capacity. She doesn't want a boyfriend or least of all a husband. But Ryder's got some issues with those terms. See, as a kid he'd been passed around from one foster home to another for as long as he can remember-plus he has this big secret that he can never reveal to Summer-and he doesn't want any kid of his to grow up without a father. He wants to be as active as possible in the child's life. Summer just wants to fill the emptiness in her life. Ever since her parents died 3 years ago, she's been lonely. Being an only child to an older couple who didn't have any siblings or family themselves meant that she was alone in the world from the time she was a senior in college. She's decided that having a baby will give her someone to love and someone who will love her back. Sad, I know. But as per usual, things don't go according to plan. After some teasing from his adoptive brothers, Ryder began to see Summer in a whole new light. Her every touch is electric and her presence does something to him that it's never done before. Same can be said for Summer, she has started to realize that trying to keep Ryder as "just a friend" isn't as easy as she thought it would have been. But alas, Summer has a secret as well. A secret that she needs to reveal to Ryder, somehow, because she doesn't know if she'll be able to move on from it. Overall, not a bad story. I just wished it were a little better detailed and maybe slightly longer. Everything just kind of came together a little too nicely in a slightly cheesy way, but it wasn't ridiculous so I could deal with that. The writing was good, the story flowed well, a very likable-if not rather young to be thinking about motherhood, but to each his own-and a very sweet hero who didn't have it easy as a kid but was able to redeem himself as an adult.

    Very good book. I like friends to lovers stories and this one was pretty sweet. Summer and Ryder have been friends for several years and she is very comfortable with him. She doesn't think she will ever marry but she wants a child of her own, so she asks Ryder to help her out. Ryder is surprised but ends up willing to do it. Neither one expects their friendship to heat up to something more. I liked both Summer and Ryder. Summer had been alone for several years after the deaths of her parents. She Very good book.

Neither one expects their friendship to heat up to something more. I liked both Summer and Ryder. Summer had been alone for several years after the deaths of her parents. She wants a family of her own but because of an incident in her past feels that she will never be able to marry. She has given it a great deal of thought and asks Ryder to be the donor for her to have that baby. She is surprised by his conditions but is willing to try it his way. She is nervous about the physical intimacy but discovers that she welcomes it from Ryder. Her feelings for Ryder start to change from friendship to love but she's afraid that he will never feel anything but friendship for her. I really enjoyed seeing the way that Summer was able to overcome her past with Ryder's help. I also liked the way that she had the courage to go to Ryder at the end and show him that he was always the man she thought he was in spite of his own past. Ryder had been friends with Summer for several years. Suddenly he started seeing her as more than just a friend, and it was freaking him out a bit. When she came to him with her plan, his first reaction was to turn her down flat, but he didn't want to hurt her feelings either. So he came up with the idea to require that it be done naturally. He was stunned when she agreed and wasn't quite sure how to deal with it. When he found out about what had happened to her I loved his reaction. I especially loved the way that he was so determined to help her overcome her fears. His total control over himself and his willingness to let her set the pace were just what she needed. His feelings for her were growing stronger but he felt he didn't deserve the high regard she had for him. When his past rises up to haunt him he breaks things off with her and tries to hide from his feelings. I loved the intervention by his brothers and how they tried to make him see sense. But the best part was when Summer came to confront him and showed him that he had nothing to fear.

I loved Summer and Ryder and how the strength of their friendship, came from a place or love and respect. Ryder is almost stoic in his relationship with Summer, hes protective and almost unaware of her as anything but a friend, instead of a woman who could change his life forever. Summer has a dream, she wants to be a mother. She wants her child to inherit the strength, character and compassion she shes in her best friend Ryder. The relationship between Ryder and Summer draws you in, with its sense of understanding in love. Highly recommended. 3.5 Stars

More a moment I thought the Last Chance Ranch mentioned in this book was the same one on Vicki Lewis Thompson books, but it was just the same name and similar programs for foster kids. Both characters love family and became one. This is a stand alone book, but the second on a series. What I liked the most I love the way Ryder took care of Summer and his relationship with his brothers. I wanted more of I wanted the story to slow down. The time between the rodeos moved pretty fast and the characters felt rushed into their relationship. Who should read it Anyone looking for a sweet romance with a little bit more intimacy.

She wanted to have a child that she can call her own but she doesn’t want to get married after a bad incident during her younger days. Ryder was surprised with her request but after a deep contemplation, he agreed with her request but not by being a donor. He wanted her to conceive naturally. Summer in turn was shock with his ultimatum; and she agreed with him in the end. From there on, Summer’s past begun to unravel itself and Ryder find himself wanting to protect her instead. I like the story and the characters in this book especially Ryder. He is a responsible person and the fact that he want to help and protect Summer shows his caring part. There are issues which Summer have that lead to her decision to ask Ryder for help but it have been revealed slowly throughout the book. This is a sweet read with good love story to tell for me.

    Best friends turned lovers are one of my favorite tropes. I find that most of my friends are men and can totally relate how easy it would be to take that one step further.

I understand that there are extenuating circumstances and he wanted her to be comfortable, but at some point, he needs to step up and be a man. Other than the ending, A Baby Between Friends kept me reading and wanting more. I hope to read more about Ryder’s brothers in future books.

    The story started out fine at the very beginning and then everything went nuts. The characters started solid and then suddenly started acting out of character.

I had to put the book down four times, due to boredom, and come back to keep reading later, just because I have issues with not finishing books. That aside, the author did manage to create a flimsy emotional connection to the characters. At least there was that.

    I just finished A Baby Between Friends & I loved it. I was a sweet romance story that I didn't want to end. I loved Ryder & Summer from the beginning. When it can to Summer, Ryder was sweet, patient, and understand with her. Even though he was really hard on himself. I'm glad his brothers & Summer knocked some sense in him & wouldn't let him do it to himself. I'm just sad I have to wait until next year to read book 3.

    Nice little story. I enjoyed it. I do wonder where in Texas the hero's ranch might be tho, since there really aren't any canyons near Waco. Bluffs and gullies and washes, yes, but no canyons. The ranch would have to be west of Waco, as well since the city (which is one of the "tier 2" 200,000 pop cities) is on the line between row-crop farm land and drier rocky ranch land...and people kept talking about going up or down to Waco...

    I really enjoyed this couple. Summer Patterson wants a child without a husband and approaches her best friend, Ryder McClain, to be the sperm donor, but he wants to go about it the natural way. Of course they fall for each other but Ryder is very resistant to staying involved because of his very poor childhood. I recommend this book as well as the series. Greater enjoyment when read in order.

    As other reviewers have noted, these two "best friends" really did not know much about each other, yet they both identified the other as a best friend. When the man's secrets were finally revealed, it seems to me that the woman capitulated awfully fast after their one-sided breakup, didn't she? Maybe we could blame it on hormones?

    The stilted and mediocre writing reads like the work of a well-educated author who neither understands her audience nor particularly appreciates her genre. The bland characters significantly declined in believability after the first sex scene before wrapping up in a nauseatingly trite (short) denouement and inevitable conclusion. Still, I didn't actively hate it and it was fun for a while.

    This was actually well written with a tight plot, but it was very offensive to rape victims (the heroine gets over her fears from a past rape - one she never reported or received therapy regarding - in a single week). A rather manufactured element keeping them apart and unemotional conclusion made the overall impression a lackluster one.

    2nd in The Good, The Bad and The Texan series. This is Ryder's story. His best friend Summer wants a baby to raise on her own and who better than her BFF Ryder to be the donor.
