✪ A Really Bad Idea ✪ Jeannine Colette ✪ Blog Tour ✪

Everyone has a best friend. Mine just happens to be Dr. Christian Gallagher— the gorgeous, green-eyed heart surgeon who wants to have a baby with me.

Yes, you read that correctly.

When my mother approached me on my thirty-third birthday with a brochure for egg freezing, it was a glaring reminder that my biological clock is ticking toward its expiration date. I’ve always dreamed of being a mom and had a plan — one that was destroyed when I caught my professional hockey player husband in bed with another woman.

Despite my broken heart I still believe in love. I want the happily ever after, but I also want a child desperately and won't settle in order to make it happen.

That’s why when I decided to take my mother’s advice, Christian came up with his own plan: Let’s have a baby together.

It’s a bad idea. A really, really bad idea. And yet...I can’t stop thinking about how great it could be.

There’s just one condition. Before we have sex (oh, yes, we’re doing this the old fashioned way!) Christian is adamant we go on three dates.

Sounds easy, but it's not.I thought sex would be the hard part, but the dates are only making me fall for the man I’ve known almost my entire life.

Whoever said sex doesn't change things never went to bed with their best friend.

Paging Dr Christian Gallagher! Paging Dr Christian Gallagher!  Get to my side STAT!  You are giving me heart palpitations!

What a beautiful friends to lovers story is A Really Bad Idea.

I mean, the premise is not a new one, there are plenty of friends to lovers stories out there, however this one just had that something - and that something is Dr Christian Gallagher.  Oh my, how swoonworthy is that man!

It wasn't hard to see where this story was going to go, however it was a lot of fun going on the journey with Christian and Meadow.  I love their banter, I love their connection - one that only years of friendship can really forge - and I really adore their fear of ruining friendships. I was glad that the sexual buildup didn't overshadow everything else.

It is a case of will they or won't they - and believe me, you want them to!

There are wonderful secondary characters, especially family members.

It wasn't all smiles, and I may have shed a couple of tears as I was reading.

I don't know how, but this was my first Jeaninne Colette read (I have read her collaborations, just not her solo writes), however I will be rectifying this in the future.

I can't wait to see what she writes next.

Jeannine Colette is the author of the Abandon Collection - a series of stand-alone novels featuring dynamic heroines who have to abandon their reality in order to discover themselves . . . and love along the way. Each book features a new couple, exciting new city and a rose of a different color.

She left the television industry to focus on her children and pursue a full-time writing career. She lives in New York with her husband, the three tiny people she adores more than life itself, and a rescue pup named Wrigley.
