This was a beautiful story. I almost didn't download it though because the cover is not the greatest. That just goes to show: don't judge a book by its cover.

The Would-Be Mommy is simultaneously heartbreaking and uplifting.

Jennifer is an excellent PR director for Safe Harbor Medical. Now that the renovations are finished, it's known as the leading baby hospital. Jennifer thought the press conference went smoothly until young mothers began showing up to drop off their babies! Then one, in particular, wanted Jennifer to take her baby to raise. Ian has had an exciting career, working all over the world as a reporter. He thought covering the hospital story would be boring but once the babies started being dropped off, he knows there is a good story there.

Jennifer quickly falls in love with baby Rosalie. Nothing is more important than keeping her safe, especially after losing her baby years ago. As she spends more time with Ian, she starts falling for him too. But she knows he won't be around long. What she doesn't know is that Ian is falling for her and the baby, too. When a secret Jennifer has hidden for years, comes out, will she lose Rosalie and Ian?

Jennifer is a good person, always trying to help others and make the best of everything. It was wonderful to see her get a baby to love. Ian is a bit of a jerk at first but as the story progressed and he started thinking about more than just his career, I liked him more.

I enjoy medical romance, especially when there is drama, so I was very happy I won this novel. If you like medical romance, I recommend this book.
