    This is a Romance, and this is the 3rd book in the Parent Portal series. I have to say this book pulled me in from the first page. I really loved the characters in this book.

    Cassie wanted a child but wasn't in a relationship so chose artificial insemination to become pregnant. However, when her sonogram showed a possible problem with the baby, she contacted the sperm donor, as was permitted by the sperm bank. There was a chance the baby may need a bone marrow donor and Wood (the sperm donor) agreed to be a donor if needed. Wood didn't expect his sperm to ever be selected and was surprised when it had. After all, he only donated his sperm as a favour because his brot Cassie wanted a child but wasn't in a relationship so chose artificial insemination to become pregnant.

After all, he only donated his sperm as a favour because his brother, a physician, established The Parent Portal. He was stunned when the recipient phoned him. Cassie and Wood kept in touch about the baby. Wood suggested they get together for lunch so they could talk about the baby's issues more easily and Cassie agreed. Wood then asked if he could go with Cassie to her amniocenteses appointment where they would find out if anything was wrong with the baby. Cassie was very stressed about the issues with the baby and Wood supported her through it all. As they spend more time together, they start falling for each other but don't say anything, afraid to mess up their friendship. They started to have weekly dinners and nightly texts. This situation was becoming real to Wood and he wanted to be a part of the baby's life. Even though I admired Cassie for going after what she wanted, I didn't like her very much. She thought too much of herself, making me wonder how she would be able to give a baby the attention needed. Wood was a great guy. He was very kind and always doing things for others. It was time he looked after himself.

    Talk about a different way to meet. Cassie Thompson chose invitrofertilation to have a child. When her sonogram showed a spot during the procedure she had to face the possibility that there might be something wrong with the baby.

He agreed to be a donor if needed. When he mentions getting together for lunch to discuss the baby's issues Cassie agrees to meet him. She finds herself attracted to Wood and they have a very cordial lunch which ends with Wood asking to accompany Cassie to her amniocentesis appointment. The amniocentesis should be able to determine what, if anything, is wrong with the baby. They have decided that Wood will be her support person during this uncertain, stressful time since Cassie doesn't want to tell her family and friends about the possibility the baby may have leukemia or some other problem until the final results of all testing comes in. As Cassie spends more and more time with Wood she starts falling for him but doesn't want to ruin their developing friendship by letting her true feelings be known. Wood Alexander is shocked to receive the phone call from Cassie Thompson. He only donated his sperm at The Parent Portal because his now deceased physician brother helped establish it and he donated as a favor to him. Once Wood met Cassie and got used to the idea of the baby he wanted to be as helpful and supportive as he could be. The friendship between the two gravitated to dinner once a week and nightly catch-up texts. Wood offered to make a crib for the baby which led to his offer to make all the nursery furniture. He wanted to be a part of the baby's life. Her Motherhood Wish by Tara Taylor Quinn is the third book in her Parent Portal series. The stories in this series center around Parent Portal which is a very different story background for me. I found this book to have a serious, thought-provoking storyline which included why someone would choose artificial insemination. I admired the two main characters who didn't want to let emotion over a possible sick baby to color their relationship. Their HEA had a rocky start but a lovely ending.

    Good book with an unusual theme. Cassie was tired of waiting for Mr. Right to come along. She wants a family of her own, so she goes to a sperm bank. But when an ultrasound reveals a possible health problem with the baby, she contacts the donor to ask for help. Wood was stunned to hear that somebody had used his sperm. He only donated as a favor to his doctor brother, never expecting to be chosen. When Cassie contacts him about the baby's health risk, he suggests meeting for lunch to discuss it.

He only donated as a favor to his doctor brother, never expecting to be chosen. When Cassie contacts him about the baby's health risk, he suggests meeting for lunch to discuss it. I liked the first meeting between Wood and Cassie. It's a little awkward because of the situation, but Wood quickly puts Cassie at ease. Cassie is surprised by Wood's willingness to do whatever is necessary and soon realizes that he is a kind and caring man. Wood jumps in to provide emotional support during that trying time, and it isn't long before he and Cassie form a strong friendship. What neither expected was the intense attraction that grew along with it. I found it interesting that they admitted the attraction but were determined to ignore it for the sake of their friendship. It was intriguing to see how Cassie and Wood started out intending to have minimal contact, but as her pregnancy progressed, they spent more time together. Cassie slowly moved from the baby being all hers to wanting Wood to be involved. Once he got used to the idea of the baby, he found that he wanted to be more hands-on. There were many sweet moments as they spent time together, from regular dinners to nightly texted conversations. As time went on, each realized that their emotions were getting involved, and neither was comfortable with it. Both Cassie and Wood had personal issues that made them resistant to the possibility of a future together. Wood has some deep-seated insecurities about his lack of education, feeling that people look down on him because of it. Meanwhile, Cassie resisted falling in love because she feared the pain of the relationship ending. Advice from an unexpected source gave Wood the courage to open his heart to Cassie. As he shared his feelings and fears, the depth of emotion was amazing, as was seeing Cassie drop her walls and let him in. Wood's relationship with Elaina was an odd one. She was his brother's widow first, but also his ex-wife. Their history was interesting and was another demonstration of Wood's caring nature. There were times when I didn't like her very much because she discouraged his involvement with Cassie, but she redeemed herself at the end.

    I really enjoyed this Special Edition. I recently read a book in the same line much like this one, but the added edition of an ex-wife made this one a little bit more dynamic. I liked Wood from the get-go. he was honest, eager, and ready to protect anyone who needed it. Eliana wasn't holding onto him out of misguided love for his brother, but out of fear of things changing again. She needed Wood as her constant in life and neither she nor Wood saw it. Cassie was take-charge, knew what she wanted I really enjoyed this Special Edition.

Cassie was take-charge, knew what she wanted, and was willing to do anything to get it, or was she? She was confident, yes. But when it came to doing anything to get Wood, she couldn't do it. She was too afraid that he'd leave her lonely the same way her mother left her father all those years ago. There were serious daddy issues, which left the point of the book exactly that, about being a daddy. For both Wood and Cassie they knew he would have to be there for his son, even if the original idea was for him to be a donor and nothing else. Wood Alexander didn't roll that way and Cassie, in the end, liked it that way. This book will require the need to suspend reality a bit, but then I haven't read a romance novel yet that doesn't. There wasn't an actual large amount of romance in this book, not in the true sense of the word. They didn't date unless you counted dinner where their knees touched once a week, and they never even shared a kiss. It made for an interesting dynamic as Cassie got closer to her due date and Wood fell more and more in love with her. If you like a different kind of romance with a hero who has a heart of gold and a heroine who just needs a push in the right direction, then you'll love Her Motherhood Wish.

    HER MOTHERHOOD WISH was my first Harlequin Special Edition, and I can’t say I will be reading another one. I loved the premise of this book; it’s what made me want to pick it up in the first place! The heroine needs to contact the hero sperm donor because her baby has potential health complications.

Yes, emotional ties that bind! Yes, strangers thrown together! Yes, two adults learning how to merge their lives! I will not spend much time on this review because the book isn’t that long, and I don’t want to think about the story any longer than I have to. Basically, this book made me sad! What the heck! The characters were SO depressing. Plus, the modern day “I married my dead brother’s wife to protect (?) her” situation the hero is in gave me major weird vibes. That whole odd couple plot took up most of the book, and I felt like it prevented the hero and heroine from spending any real time together, which is fine because I didn’t get the idea that they actually liked each other most of the time. Seriously, I don’t think they even got beyond a mild interest in each other. Oh man, I am getting into rant mode. Overall, I couldn’t connect to the writing, every character was a sad-sack in their own way, and I actively thought the heroine could do better than the morose, self-pitying, martyr hero. It felt like the romance came last after a bunch of other weird side plots. Thank you next! **I received a free copy of this book in order to provide an honest review**

    Her Motherhood Wish is a clever book with a modern premise. When Cassie Thompson gets tired of waiting for Mr. Right to start a family, she choses IVF to become pregnant.

Their relationship deepens into friendship as they dine weekly and text regularly. Wood, who donated to The Parent Portal because it was established by his deceased brother, finds himself likewise developing feelings for Cassie, and wanting to be a part of the baby's life. Her Motherhood Wish is part of a trilogy revolving around The Parent Portal but this installment works perfectly as a stand alone. I found the characters compelling, the premise thought provoking, and the compellingly modern. I really do like stories that try different things and Her Motherhood Wish does that, expanding the idea of family and what it means to want to have children in an unconventional setup. I can't wait to see what else Tara Taylor Quinn comes up with!

    I had a high expectation from the book and the author as her characters don't typically have inconsistencies and was slightly disappointed as the H explicitly mentions in a chapter that having supported his ex-wife/sister in law with medical bills and treatment for over 3 years his savings had been depleted a bit but all of a sudden a few chapters later he is a secret investments guru who has mastered the understanding of investments despite being a high school dropout who doesn't have an ambiti I had a high expectation from the book and the author as her characters don't typically have inconsistencies and was slightly disappointed as the H explicitly mentions in a chapter that having supported his ex-wife/sister in law with medical bills and treatment for over 3 years his savings had been depleted a bit but all of a sudden a few chapters later he is a secret investments guru who has mastered the understanding of investments despite being a high school dropout who doesn't have an ambition to pursue his furniture making skills or set up his own crew for construction jobs. He has deep sense of inferiority rather than make his character arc develop the author uses an artificial crutch of his 'secret skills' like furniture making, investments etc., Despite that one inconsistency, I will still recommend it as this isn't your typical harlequin novel, the H is a refreshing character, not the typical millionaire playboy but a man who is all about selfless love with an understanding of his own traits and not trying to be a pseudo macho man. The h again is a refreshing woman independent yet thoughtful and open minded. The plot while it sounds typical is given a new perspective thanks to the H and h and their family dynamics.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it. I am giving this 3.5 stars. The beginning of the book was very confusing to me. What exactly was the relationship between Woodrow Alexander and Elaina? Why did they marry? This is the third book of this series.

I have not read the prior stories so I am unclear if it would help to read them first. I did persevered through as the premise was one that I knew I would enjoy. I am glad that I did. Both protagonists were a ying and yang combination. Cassie is an attorney, Wood dropped out of high school to help raise his younger brother. Cassie is the more confident of the two where Wood is the more lovable, giving nurturer. That is a big departure from most romance novels. He is not the alpha male. It was a refreshing change and made him more humanized in that way. I enjoyed the dual POV format that the book is written in. That helped to understand the back story relationship between Wood and Elaina. Also helped to fully understand Wood that much better. This is a sweet, clean romance. I would suggest that if you also struggle in the beginning to just keep going. It will make sense the more that you keep reading.

    Woodrow Alexander was a sperm donor so long ago that he forgot about it until he gets a phone call that will change his life forever. Attorney Cassie Thompson knew she wanted a baby and employed an agency to start her family. But when she learns her baby's health could be at risk, she reaches out to her sperm donor. What she finds is a man who is caring and thoughtful and Cassie realizes that this might be the man of her dreams.

I loved the concept of a sperm donor bringing two people together and I enjoyed the baby's storyline. There were so many heartwarming moments that made me smile. However, the hero's personal view bothered me sometimes. I think at his age, he should be confident and more at peace with himself and his life decisions. As a result, it made the romance between them though sweet, less appealing. He was so self-conscious that it took away from the love story. I loved his good heart but self-love is also really important. I don't think there was a strong conflict but the emotional turmoil that a mother faces when her child is at risk was one I understood and felt. Thank you #Netgalley #Harlequin.
