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 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!!
