like she has come up with the solution in surrogacy, which will allow them to have children without her personally becoming pregnant.Years before, she and her BFF Naira had a big fight and falling out After reconnecting at another friend s wedding, they are both interested in rekindling their friendship Naira and Paris both have big favors to ask the other Naira for Paris s help with a business and Paris for Naira to be the surrogate mother.Told in alternating perspectives, we gain insight into the complex relationship of surrogate and parents as well as looks into the wealthy in New York City and around the globe I had a hard time connecting to the characters, as their pasts felt like statements, and I had a hard time getting a handle on who they are were The story of Naira s husband and her family was slow coming and hard to really grasp.In terms of what I liked, I liked the diversity of characters and the discussion of surrogacy and the potential problems issues that can arise around it, even when a close friend is involved However, beyond not really getting a feel for the two main characters, I also did not understand why Paris, who really had no interest in parenting, felt that surrogacy was the answer Pregnancy, while difficult, was not really her problem she had a problem with understanding healthy parent child relationships and was not interested in motherhood I did not really get why surrogacy was the answer I feel like a better and clearer backstory on this would have been helpful for instance, if she was concerned about complications of pregnancy and childbirth or interested in being a mother but not interested in the process of becoming one, I could have understood the solution of surrogacy However, being a parent is much than just giving birth, so I am not really sure I had a good handle on this solution or her reasons behind it all.I was intrigued enough to keep reading and learn about the experiences of these characters However, I did not feel like I understood them enough to really get into their lives emotionally Please note that I received a copy from the publisher All opinions are my own flag 1 likeLike see review Oct 16, 2018

Scots god among men with all the right looks, talent, connections, money and even kindness, he seemed completely clueless about the woman he agreed to marry Supposedly she warned him about her no kids

and the author has handily skipped over explaining the details of how they worked it out and just shown us that it s all okay now Um Excuse me After all the drama and build up, a baby lands in Paris s
