"The Virgin Cowboy Billionaire’s Secret Baby" by Lauren Gallagher (aka L. A. Witt, Lori A. Witt, Ann Gallagher, and Diana Fyre)
Author's Book Description : You can’t thaw a heart that was never frozen.
Retired at thirty-five, billionaire Matt Coolidge should be enjoying the fruits of his workaholic years. Instead, he’s got migraines from butting heads with his mother. If Matt doesn’t get a matrimonial move-on, she’s threatening to will the family farm to his brother, who’ll turn it into a strip mall.
Then Matt’s childhood best friend rolls back into town, bringing a complication that’s not entirely unexpected—or unwelcome.
Years ago, with Matt’s help, Dara Marley froze several embryos before cancer treatment stole her fertility—and before a stupid argument tore their friendship apart. Now alone, she’s taking the most logical step to ensure the child she’s carrying has a father. Returning to Matt—and hoping bygones will be bygones.
Baby and all, Matt’s on board. And when Dara finds out Matt’s career kept him too busy for a relationship—even sex—she’s more than happy to bring him up to speed.
But a decades-old grudge between their families means keeping quiet about their good news—and the feelings they never knew went far deeper than friendship.
Warning : Contains a virgin who’s been waiting a long time for this and a woman who’s happy to show him the way. And they’ve both had it up to here with narrow-minded gossips and small-town grudges.
My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!! About a decade ago, Matthew (Matt) and Dara--two best friends--were there for one another during the worst time of Dara's life when she was dealing with cancer treatments and deciding to freeze some of her eggs/embryos with the help of Matt. After that, they both grew apart first because of a stupid fight, then life just swept them onto different paths. Now both are living back in their hometown and even though Dara is in the middle of a divorce she has news for Matt, she's pregnant from the embryos they created years ago and is curious if he would be willing to actually be a father to the life he created now that her ex-husband is out of the picture. Matt agrees and so their friendship begins again like they were never apart. Yet, if it was only them, everything would be fine but with both their families hating one-another over a generational feud and with a gossipy town contend with, it's them against the world .... but will it bring them closer together or further apart?
This novel is so erotically sweet that I could not get enough and was wishing for a Matt of my own. I loved how Dara and Matt dealt with their relationship before and after they had sex. Watching them fall in love without realizing it was happening was pretty special. Also, I appreciated how the arguments in this novel were between everyone else yet not between them. No that doesn't mean that they had the "perfect" lives/relationship, but it showed how committed they were to each other; it was them against everyone else. So sweet!! In addition, Matt was the perfect combo of hot shy guy and determined possessive man, at least from his POV, that I became enamored with him. Dara is one lucky woman!
I recommend this novel to those looking for a sweet erotic best friend contemporary romance!!

"Oh my God!"
Abruptly, she released a ragged breath and gently nudged him back. Then she sat back a little, her eyes wide and her face flushed. "Well, that was new."
"New? How so?"
"I've never come just from that." She shivered once more. "Maybe these stupid hormones are good for something."
"Aww, damn. And here I thought it was beginner's luck."
"We'll call it both." ~ within Chapter 26
