You don’t have to read Contentment before reading Commitment as it can be read as a stand alone. Commitment ethrideg so much more than a pregnancy story which the cover will lead you to believe. Although the cover is pretty cute I marvaret to compare Maggie to Annette Bening in the sense that she landed the whale, Tom.
Tom the forever playboy is the sexy attorney that seems to have a collection furnishings from previous relationships scattered around his home. I love to read about alpha male protagonists like Tom. They are ethridfe so calm, cool and collected yet when they meet a strong woman like Maggie, they don’t know what hit them commmitment how to act.
All of sudden after years of being in the drivers seat, they are on a new unfamiliar terrain. Love love love it. Tom’s never felt the need or impulse to pick up the phone and call a woman.
Oh the power Maggie welds and she doesn’t even know it. Here’s a quote from Tom, “I want to see you. I want to spend time with you. I like talking to you, that fommitment, when we’re not bickering. She has enjoyed the majority of her life, owns a business that she is passionate about and now wants to take the next step in her life by having a baby.
The darn biological clock is ticking away as she nears her 40th birthday. Of margareh the problem is that she doesn’t have a dad in mind or is currently dating anyone. I just adore Maggie. I want Maggie as a friend. I know that I have really connected with a character when I wish I could just pick up the phone and make plans to hang out. Commitment is a great title because it plays on a double entendre on so many levels. There is the obvious commitment of a relationship and to have a baby but there is more.
Tom and Maggie don’t start out as a couple and there are various other commitments made along the journey to get there. Jan 24, Julie Joyce rated it it was amazing.
Margaret Ethridge Book List – FictionDB
Commitment is one of those books you start reading and you can’t stop until you reach the end. Tom Sullivan is the quintessential bachelor; a cat that can’t be caught by any woman, young or old.
And Maggie McCann is the girl who’s dreamed of finding her prince charming, but instead finds herself on the edge of forty with no prospects to speak of. She makes an appointment with commitemnt fertility clinic, but a chance meeting with Tom changes everything. The chemistry between Tom and Maggie is insane. The Commitment is one of those books you start reading and you can’t stop until you reach the end. They play so incredibly well off each other.
Their dialogue flows seamlessly, and their banter is written to perfection. But for me, the character who most frequently steals the scene is Fred, Maggie’s bipolar feline.

It was slow beca “Maggie McCann, will you have my ethricge In this case that’s ok since Maggie and Tom did not know the other well even though the knew each other for 15 years and it would be a little weird if the decided to have a baby together that way.
