Please note this book is a romantic parody. It is not intended to be taken as a serious romance. As a matter of fact, for optimum results the author recommends you read it in your best "Valley Girl" voice. ;)

When Jasmine's best friend and roommate tells her she's pregnant, Jasmine is less than overjoyed. Especially when Roni tells her that she isn't sure just who the father is. Complicating matters is Jasmine's unwelcome attraction to her billionaire playboy boss. What follows is a mind-blowing journey down the trail to motherhood that will test the bounds of their friendship and the limits of Jasmine's patience.

"Who's Your Baby Daddy?" is an erotic romance parody short story intended for mature audiences only.

I'm in the fringes of a reading slump and because my reading calendar is quite full, I can't afford to slum it just yet. So as a way to alleviate my "reader fatigue" I decided to read something light and funny. WHO'S YOUR BABY DADDY by I. Ronik is the right book to do the job. At 80+ pages, this book is sexy and fluffy, it's begging you not to take it too seriously.

WHO'S YOUR BABY DADDY is a romantic parody as the blurb says. The main characters are best friends Veronica and Jasmine and both are in the cusp of a great change. Roni just found out she's preggers and just like the Maury Povich show, she doesn't know who the father is. After checking her black book, she narrowed it down to 4 men and with Jazzy's help, they tried to collect DNA samples from Roni's potential baby daddies and what ensued is a ridiculous story that only happens in fiction. While Roni is in the middle of a paternity investigation/sex fest, Jazzy found love in her boss, Christopher. So there's also love-in-the-workplace drama involved and I enjoyed how I. Ronik made that part realistic and not this superficial lovefest.

This short is told in alternating POV's between Roni and Jazzy. I enjoyed the solid friendship between Roni and Jazzy, their loyalty and love for each other was well established and unquestionable. Aside from the conflicts in their respective lives, the main crux revolves around their friendship. It was shallow but, again, realistic and was resolved eventually. Things were pretty even until the end where I. Ronik took me by surprise and turned WHO'S YOUR BABY DADDY upside down. I loved what she did and in a way it's expected, this is a parody after all so a funny but serious story is out of the question.

Verdict: WHO'S YOUR BABY DADDY is a fabulous read. It did the job in as far as pulling me out of my semi slump. I recommend you give this a gander when you're in the mood for a good quickie.

    1. I hope you give this a chance, it's only a short one plus the "parody" won't hit you til the end. But I do agree, parodies are hard to pull off.

  12. I was totally drawn to your blog because of this book's title when I saw it in my Bloglovin' feed. It's sounds like it was a light & fun read. Maybe I'll give contemporary romance a try one of these days. Mind you, my TBR pile is already big enough as it is without throwing another genre into the mix!

      I gave up trying to sort my TBR. When someone comments I just say "there's a method to that madness". Thanks for stopping by Carmel :)
