Need a baby? Call the fire department!

Will You Give My Mommy a Baby? Will You Give My Mommy a Baby?

In a nutshell, today’s romance selection for Friday Fiction is your typical meet cute (OMG! My kid called 911 to get me a firefighter man!) and then romantic comedy proceeds to drag the firefighter and hapless single mother into a reluctant relationship. Hilarity ensues and she gets a baby, a firefighter, and still has the semi-obnoxious Billy that started it all.

I love me some romance books, especially when I am overly stressed and irritated. I hate to say it to the “don’t judge a book by its cover” crowd, but I totally judge books that way. Pathetic 90s fashion aside, this cover would be awful in any year and kill any chance of picking up a reader or two.

Will You Give My Mommy a Baby? excerpt


  1. Ah, don’t you just want to rewrite the dialogue? “There’s no fire here, fellas,” said Noreen. “Are you…sure?” said the hunky firefighter, raking his hand through his hair. “Because we could…tame the flames.” (Ellipses seem important in this sort of chat.)

  2. I’m laughing at the three-legged race.

    It’s judge a book by its cover, by the way.

  3. In our district we have a group home where one resident would pull the alarm just to see the truck and engines come, much to the consternation of the other residents and aides. Billy must have called in a working fire, because you would never get a crew of 6 for an automatic alarm during the day in a volunteer department.

  4. Wait, does Billy want a little brother or a father figure? Because it doesn’t seem like he’s too interested in the father figure part. Don’t worry Billy, Mommy doesn’t really need to get married for you to have a baby brother.
