Product Description

******* This is a saga series and each book can be read as a standalone *******

She only wants his sperm. What could go wrong?

Georgia Armstrong is on the hunt—on the hunt for a man. It’s not what you think, though. She’s not looking for love, friendship or companionship. Georgia wants a baby, and she’s on the hunt for a sperm donor. Except her plan is to have the sperm donated the good old-fashioned way. What could possibly go wrong?

Henry Marsh knows what he wants, and a wife and family are not it. He doesn’t know where the blonde bombshell came from, and he doesn’t know what she was thinking when she came up with her plan. And he especially doesn’t know why he agreed to help her.

Business quickly turns into pleasure and the lines are blurred as Henry and Georgia begin to break all the rules.

How far will Georgia go to become a mother, and what will it cost her? And has Henry finally put his member some place he shouldn't?

I really loved this book. It forms part of a series but can easily be picked up as a standalone which is fantastic.
While I can't relate to the main characters deep seated desire to become a mother, I can understand chasing what you've always wanted. One of my favourite things about this book is that it gets you interested straight away, there is no waiting chapters and chapters for the real story to begin. Right from the beginning I felt connected with the main character Georgia and I was cheering her on to get what she was after. She was clear about her mission from the beginning and I was hooked straight away.
Throughout the book I was completely drawn into Georgia's world. I felt her desperation while chasing her dreams and the total despair when her world appeared to be crumbling. The story was compelling and I had to know more.
However, I was disappointed when it came to an end. I was so caught up in Georgia and Henry's story I couldn't believe it was already over. As the story was written from both perspectives I felt I needed a few more chapters from Henry to completely convince me of his true feelings. I had been through all the ups and downs with Georgia and craved more from Henry.

Another tremendous read by Stephanie Smith. This little lady sure knows how to twist your heart and make you stop breathing. For just a moment anyway.

Its not all fun and games for Georgia a school teacher and Henry a night club owner, commencing with how they meet. But believe you me there is enough to make you want to gobble the whole book up in one read.

Its part four in the Try again series, but can certainly be read as a stand-a-lone.

Thank you Stephanie Smith (Author).

This can be read as a standalone is part four in the series and I have to say my favourite. Maybe it because I understand the burning desire to become a mother, Maybe it's the sexy night club owner.... I can't really say. I really like how Stephanie doesn't mess around and gets right into the story straight away. If you love a good romance with a happy ending then this is for you. Buy it.... You won't regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Truly enjoyable. Loved it❤️ 21 November 2016
By ChantalG - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
It was all about a baby but it turned out to be about so much more. I loved this story. I loved the characters. You have Georgia who wants nothing more than to have a baby going to extremes to get what she wants. But who would have thought that the gorgeous man she met at a bar would actually agree to help her out. Henry, what was he thinking agreeing to father a strangers child. Little did he know that this women will have him tide up in knots in no time. But what happens when feelings come into play?
The attraction instant, the chemistry smoking hot between them. I loved them together. I was intrigued from the get go. A wonderful story that will have you captivated through out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another GREAT book to this series 17 November 2016
By Jennifer H. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I have really come to love Stephanie Smith’s Try Again Series. Whatever It Takes is the fourth book in this series and I am really hoping it isn’t the last book. There are still 2 more characters I would love to read stories about (Julianne and Rachel).

As I have said before with this series….As each book has been released Stephanie has outdone herself from the book before. Each book just keeps getting better and better. Her writing style has improved so much since I have read book 1 in this series.

I love that she has been able to continue to give us interesting and fun storylines and the cast of characters that we have loved from the beginning. Each of these books can be read as true standalones, but you will see past characters and couples from all the previous books. You won’t be lost in any of the books if you don’t read the previous books, you will just get a better emotional connection and understanding of all the characters in this series.

As with the last book in this series (Book 3) we get a Dual POV in this book. I loved that we got more of both POV’s with this book. I love knowing what both characters are thinking as the story progresses. I thought this book was a sweet and sexy story between two people who have their goals set for what they want in their future and aren’t afraid to go after them. What happens when you enter into an agreement and somewhere along the way feelings and emotions get involved?? What happens when your dreams for the future don’t match that of your partners?? Can one or the other give up their dreams just to be with the other one?? These questions are all answered in this book, but you have to read it to get them ;)

In this book we follow the journey of Henry and Georgia. Georgia is the BFF of Lana (Book 3) who is Tate’s (Book 2) sister. We met Georgia in book 3 because she is Lana’s friend and co-worker. Henry is a club owner and to be honest I don’t remember meeting him in any of the other books, but he does have a connection to this group of friends, I’m just not going to be the one to tell you how or with who. That is revealed in the story. Georgia has always wanted children, but as she has been getting older she is finding that it might be something she has to take charge of and do on her own. So she sets out looking for a “sperm donor”. This is how she meet Henry. Georgia goes to a club and Henry walks up to her to get to know her. How will Henry react when Georgia drops her baby bomb on him?? Will he agree to her arrangement?? Read this book to find out.

As with the previous books we get to see all the other couples from this series. I always love reconnecting with old couples to see where they have gone since their story. Like I said before I really hope this isn’t the last book in this series. I think there is more story to tell with these characters.

I would recommend this book and series. Each book is about learning to open yourself up to love again. That finding the right person is always worth the risk!!

5.0 out of 5 stars ... while each can be read as a standalone I recommend reading them in order to get the full picture 18 November 2016
By steamy book momma - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is the forth book in this series and while each can be read as a standalone I recommend reading them in order to get the full picture. Georgia wants a baby and she doesn’t want to wait around to find her Mr. Right so she can up with a plan. The plan is a little crazy but she has fully thought it through. She is going to find a guy to father her baby and do it the old fashion way but then they won’t have to see each other anymore. What guy is going to agree to that? Henry likes his life. He has never wanted to get married nor have kids. Henry meets Georgia at a club he knows. He is taken by her right away. Then he learns of her plan and thinks she is crazy. After watching her tell several other men her plan and being a bit jealous and worried one of them may say yes he comes back to her and agrees to her plan. After all it’s not like he is going to have to be a part of the child’s life. The only problem is that they may like each other more than this plan has room for. Georgia likes Henry but he is adamant that he doesn’t want children and that’s all Georgia wants. Henry is drawn to Georgia and finds himself wanting to be around her more and more. But could he be enough for her, would she give up having a child for him? Neither was looking to fall in love but that maybe just what they get. Would Georgia give up the one thing she truly wants just to be with Henry? I loved this book so much. This series is fantastic and I couldn't wait to read this book. Stephanie has done it again. I was drawn in right away. Both Georgia and Henry learn about themselves and what they really want in life. I loved getting to revisit with the other characters from this series. Georgia is torn. She loves watching her friends getting everything they want and finding happiness but sad because she wants those things as well. Henry begins to reevaluate what he wants after meeting Georgia. I highly recommend this book and this series. I read the whole book in a few hours and wanted more.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 Hearts for Henry & Georgia 18 November 2016
By Romance Between The Sheets - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
WHATEVER IT TAKES is the story of one woman willing to do whatever it takes to have a baby. Georgia isn’t getting any younger and she knows her time is running out if she wants to have a baby. She can’t afford to go through IVF, so that leaves her with the only option of getting pregnant the old-fashioned way. But she’s a realist who knows that by the time she finds a man who she could settle down with, it might be too late. So she’s come up with a plan that even she thinks is crazy: find a man willing to knock her up, who will then walk away when it’s done. Henry ends up being that man. He has no desire for marriage or children, but he’s happy to try and make her dream come true.

Despite her crazy plan, I quite liked Georgia. She had a dream and she chased it with everything she had, because she was determined to make it come true. I can respect that. I liked Henry, that he was very upfront about what he did and didn’t want out of life. However, I didn’t like that after he acknowledged his feelings for Georgia, he expected her to give up her dream of having a baby to be with him, but not once did he consider doing the same for her and I was so happy when Georgia stood up to him about it. Luckily for Henry, he redeems himself in a huge way.

WHATEVER IT TAKES is told in dual POVs and while it’s part of a series, it can be read as a stand-alone. I did find it hard to believe that Henry⎯a man in his thirties⎯didn’t know how a woman’s cycle worked, or that Georgia believed her ability to fall pregnant was gone after suffering a setback. Their lack of knowledge in regards to human reproduction was a little concerning. The story itself moves at a fairly quick pace and is overall a fun and lighthearted read that comes with a lovely HEA.

* Note: This story includes scenes about the joys of pregnancy, as well as its dangers and risks, which may be triggers for some readers.

4.0 out of 5 stars They couldn't help but get attached 21 November 2016
By Mollien Osterman Alpha Book Club - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Heat Level: 3 flames out of 5
Rating: 4 stars out of 5

This is the fourth book in the Try Again Series. We met Georgia in the other books in this series. She is the best friend who has watched all her friends meet the men of their dreams and start to have their families. Georgia has given up on finding the perfect man, but not on starting her own family. Now she just has to find a guy to give her the sperm that she needs with no commitment towards her or her child. Henry Marsh is a self made man who is attracted to Georgia from the beginning. At first he turns down her proposal. He has no desire to ever get married or have children of his own, but something about Georgia makes him want to protect her and give her what she wants. Making a baby without getting attached proves to be harder than it seemed. I did enjoy this story, as I did the rest of the series. The chemistry between Georgia and Henry was pretty hot. The pacing was steady. This was a very easy book to read. You will be happy to get you HEA. There wasn’t much in the way of character development. I don’t think that we learned to much about either character’s background.

PLOT 4 Stars
PACING: 4 Stars
ENDING: 5 Stars
