My brain exploded at the supermarket. One minute I was arguing with my three-year-old about how many grapes she could stick in her tiny mouth and the next minute I was staring at the face of the father of my child.
The guy ghosted me after I told him I was pregnant. I sent him texts, called him and even posted a certified letter but received zero response. While he was down for the baby-making activities, he had zero desire to accept the consequences.
So I did what any other like-minded woman would’ve done in my position. I reached into my cart and started hurling things at him.
To my surprise, he not only paid for the damage but followed me home. Now, he’s telling me he never got my messages or my letter and that he’s ready to be a father.
He’s patching drywall, doing the laundry, and carrying the trash to the curb, and I’m remembering what it was like when he was loving me every night. A few heated stares and a few brushes of his hand against mine and my long-dormant female parts are roaring to life. Everyone’s going to think I’m a few French fries short of a Happy Meal if I let him back into my life, but my heart can’t keep asking what if…
My top thoughts:
I had a lot of fun with Bombshell. I understood immediately why they all raved about Jen Frederick. The opening scene was so funny, with a food fight in a grocery store. I love the relationship between the heroine and her best friend as well. Even in such a short book, you pick up that they have that kind of friendship where they would do anything for each other. And OMG I love all the Harry Potter references in the book!
My one complaint… this book is unrealistic as hell. And some of it, I have no trouble dismissing. But I got really caught up – to the point of distraction from the story – with the age of the baby. In some moments, I felt like the story was suggesting the baby was about 6 months old at least, based one what what happening. At other points, it felt like the suggestion was that it was practically a new born. It bugged me, a lot.
Who I think would like it:
If you like second chance romances, sexy scenes, and a good amount of humor, this is a fun story for you.
I really enjoyed the narrator for this story, Erin Mallon. I thought she did a great job with the voices and I had no trouble following along with my 2x pace.
Gah, I love these ladies. They crack me up. I love all the talk about Harry Potter too – keep that coming please 🙂 This week was an Alexa Riley week – meaning that with the exception of Monday and Friday, it’s just Lea and Mel without Tessa. I personally like it best with all three of them, but I think it’s funny the tone difference on Lea and Mel weeks, versus Tessa weeks. Tessa is more organized in her thoughts, Lea and Mel are all over the place. I like both, but Lea seriously cracks me up the most I think.
Oh and they played a game on Friday, written by Tessa when she was drinking, of Which guy would you pick? It was hilarious and I recommend you listen for that alone 🙂
