Any medical career is instantly plunged into a work ethic and an off-duty, supposedly unwinding time (personal experience). Obstetrics is not run on an agenda. Expected dates of delivery are for the professionals to predict but baby will arrive when he/she 'feels like it',( often in 'anti-social' hours). The author has mingled the lives of two medics with their off duty lives. 36 year old Morgan Jacobsen has a checkered romantic past. She has a 15 year old foster daughter, Tessa, who is pregnant. She also has pets acquired from the pet rescue team. Priorities arise, especially when her mother, not particularly close, moves in. Let battle commence. Fellow Luke Gilbert is in the same occupational line, same predicament, whose 15 year old, Sophie, is pregnant by his best friend's son. Luke is seemingly unavailable, unemotional, a job-focussed man. Morgan has recurrent X-rated dreams about him. Where will the situation go? Will the similar circumstances and common ground pull them together, or not? An excellent read with sympathies and anticipation at the reader's forefront. Very enjoyable.
I haven't read any of this author's work before but the cute baby on the front drew me in :) I really enjoyed this book and was kept reading right until the end. Whilst the plot was fairly unsurprising, the characters were interesting, funny and easy to relate to. A fairly light-hearted read that deals with some serious issues too, this book is definitely well worth a read!
