Baby Proof Read Online Free - From the author of the smash hits Something Borrowed and Something Blue comes a novel that explores the question: is there ever a deal-breaker when it comes to true love?
First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes . . . a baby carriage? Isn't that what all women want?
Not so for Claudia Parr. And just as she gives up on finding a man who feels the same way, she meets warm, wonderful Ben. Things seem too good to be true when they fall in love and agree to buck tradition with a satisfying, child-free marriage. Then the unexpected occurs: one of them has a change of heart. One of them wants children after all.
This is the witty, heartfelt story about what happens to the perfect couple when they suddenly want different things. It's about feeling that your life is set and then realizing that nothing is as you thought it was—and that there is no possible compromise. It's about deciding what is most important in life, and taking chances to get it. But most of all, it's about the things we will do—and won't do—for love.

I loved Giffin's first two books, Something Borrowed and Something Blue, so I had high hopes for this book. Instead I was left with a resentful disappointment.
Firstly, why is it that novels set in NYC have to be gushing odes to the city? This book name drops worse than a D-lister trying to get in...

I have mixed feelings about this book.
I had picked this up as the third novel by Ms. Giffin, having already read her first two ( Something Borrowed, Something Blue). All the characters in her books seem to be somewhat interrelated, and the back cover looked interesting, especially since I, like...

Ugh. It's very rare that I get this pissed off by a book, especially such random chick lit. This review contains spoilers, so don't read anymore if you ever plan to read this book.
Ok, here goes:
The story was about a NYC couple, Ben & Claudia, that are madly in love. They both agreed before ma...

I'm only a few pages in and I'm hooked. This woman is me, plain and simple. I'm sitting here wondering when Emily Griffin found the time to sit down and write a book all about me. I'm really hoping the main character doesn't sell out in the end to garner the mass-appeal of chick-lit readers. If s...

Yet another Emily Giffin novel, and I think it was okay for the most part. The thing I HATE about Giffin as a writer is she makes a really interesting, difficult scenario that makes you sympathize with her characters, and then she can't think of how to solve the moral dilemma, so near the end of...

This book annoyed me. I couldn't figure out why at first, and then I realized it - I don't agree with the author's message. The protagonist spends the whole book trying to get over her ex-husband who left her because she didn't want children. In the end, they reconcile because while she still doe...

This is one of the WORST books I have ever read. Please do not torture yourself.

Usually, I tend to shy away from books in the chick lit genre. When I saw "Baby Proof" on the shelf, I was instantly drawn to this book for some reason. After reading the book jacket, I knew this was definitely going to be an interesting read to say the least.
Claudia and Ben are the perfect coup...

D This book reminded me of why I don't like chick lit -- unrealistic expensive Manhattan lifestyles obsession with finding love partner. Anyway, this seemed more promising -- a woman finds a man who also doesn't want kids (yay! Perfect for me--like T!) and then he changes his mind, and the whole...

Este libro está escrito para mí. Es como si alguien dijera voy a escribir la vida de Brenda en unos 15 años en el futuro...
Podia reconocerme en muchas de las facetas de la protagonista, daba miedo.
ME ENCANTA que se haya tocado un tema que casi nadie toca. Que es el simple hecho de no querer tener...
