Review: The Baby Maker (Hunter Brothers #1) by Lili Valente

The Baby Maker (Hunter Brothers, #1)

The Baby Maker

(Hunter Brothers #1)

by Lili Valente

A sexy, swoony new Standalone rom-com from USA Today Bestseller Lili Valente…

Some men are troublemakers or dealmakers. The men in my family? We’re baby makers. 

For six generations, the women of wine country have had a saying: don’t bang a Hunter man unless you want a bun in your oven.

Yeah, well. I’ve got a saying too: no thanks. The last thing I need is baby makes three. My business is expanding and the only thing I’m interested in getting knocked up is my bottom line.

But then one night Emma Haverford makes me an offer I can’t refuse—she backs away from the land I have my eye on in exchange for a favor…

A big, fat, baby making favor…


When I hear women have gotten pregnant shaking hands with Hunter men, I know I need Dylan Hunter’s…ahem, special skills…way more than I need to expand my vineyard.

I’m ready to give my heart to a child and I’m tired of waiting for my late-to-the-party Prince Charming to make my dreams come true. So I promise Dylan—three months of hot, heavy, baby-making s-e-x and then I’m out of his hair forever.

But what if when it comes time to say good-bye, all I want to do is keep bottling up more memories with this big-hearted man?

This sexy Standalone romance will make you laugh, swoon, and blush baby-makin’ red. Heat level: A risk of getting knocked up during download. Paperback and audio versions are especially dangerous. Handle with care…


3.5 Baby Maker Stars 

The Baby Maker is the first book in the Hunter Brothers series by Lili Valente. I had only read Valente’s books through her collaboration with Pippa Grant so I wanted to see what her books where like on her own.

Dylan comes across at the start as a moody, grumpy man who cares for one thing and that’s to get his family farm profitable again so he can pursue his dream of making craft beer. He doesn’t want or need distractions. But he somehow gets roped into all that with Emma.

I lean in, intending to press a kiss to his cheek, but he shifts his head at the last moment, and my lips brush his. The second we touch—soft skin on soft skin, breath mingling in the air between us—sparks ignite. Lightning flashes. Thunder rolls. And I’m pretty sure a hole is torn in the space-time continuum.

Emma is someone who worked herself to near death in Silicon Valley and now is following her dream of owning and running a vineyard. There is just one thing that is missing for her and that’s a baby.

“In my experience with big dreams, either you go after them or they go after you.”

This was a slow-paced sweet romance, although it was slow at times there were still parts of this book where I really had a good laugh and overall the story was enjoyable. It also had great secondary characters and I would like to read more in the series but the series is not on KU so this puts me off a little!
