Review: CAROSELLI’S CHRISTMAS BABY by Michelle Celmer

About the book:

She wants a baby. He needs an heir. It seems like the perfect arrangement…until they decide to conceive the old-fashioned way.

Having a baby with his best friend is the means to an end for Nick Caroselli. In his quest to receive a ten-million-dollar inheritance, he’ll also be giving Theresa Phillips the one thing she really wants…a child. Once the baby’s born and the money’s in the bank, they can divorce, share custody and go back to being buddies. But their best-laid plans are about to take a sharp turn under the mistletoe, as things really heat up this Christmas.

This book was so sweet. I loved that there wasn’t any angst between the couple. They were best friends and decided that they could be parents together and they wouldn’t let it get in the way of their friendship. Nick and Theresa are perfect for each other and everyone around them knows it but them. The were a few things that I didn’t like about the story was that they decided to make the baby the old-fashioned way instead of using artificial insemination (which was Theresa’s original plan). With their original intention to keep the relationship only for the purpose of having a child and nothing romantic, it didn’t make sense for them to become sexually involved. It worked for the stories happily ever after, but made what happened feel predictable and took something out of the story. Another thing that bothered me was that the story didn’t feel finished. There are more books in the mini-series that I’m sure will tie up any loose ends, but I wish that Nick and Theresa’s story had felt more complete.
