About the Author
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Julia Kent turned to writing contemporary romance after deciding that life is too short not to have fun. She writes romantic comedy with an edge, and new adult books that push contemporary boundaries. From billionaires to BBWs to rock stars, Julia finds a sensual, goofy joy in every book she writes, but unlike Trevor from Random Acts of Crazy, she has never kissed a chicken. She loves to hear from her readers by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, on Twitter @jkentauthor, and on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/julia.kent.100.

The author writes in such a bizarre, inexplicable mess of explicit and coy that I can't follow it. She refers (repeatedly) to giving birth using terms like "sh*tting an eight-pound brick", and then goes Barbara Cartland on body parts in the sex.
I don't understand the love-at-first-sight between the protagonists, but I could see the set-up for the Big Falling Out and didn't care enough about either of them to sit through the other half of the book.
There was too much about Laura and her two lovers who live together in a menage relationship and the baby she is having with one (no-one knows who the father is) which was pretty boring and seem to be there just to pad out the word count. The book lacked the humour and deft writing style of Random Acts of Crazy.
Darla and her two lovers Joe and Trevor were also in this book just to ram home another menage romance. And surprise, surprise Josie has given up her job as a nurse to help run a dating site for people wanting threesomes. Darla has come to Boston to work for the same company which is owned by Laura's two billionaire lovers. That's right, nearly every page was about people involved in threesomes, either participating or hawking hook up services for menage online.
We get it, Julia Kent just loves menage a trois. It's not only boring, it's also a pity because she's just rehashing the same storyline. She can be an excellent writer but this is far from her best work. I would have liked to have read more about Josie and Alex instead of all the supporting characters I won't be reading the next in this series.
Below par for a Julia Kent book
I loved the side-story of Josie's best friend Laura, and her two men and their baby. Having read Laura's story first, it was fun to catch up with them and how they are getting on. Like another reader whose review I read, I found the birth description way over the top. I have given birth twice with no drugs or pain relief, and it's really not that bad - Laura really needed to "man-up"...or should that be "woman-up". The descriptions were probably enough to put those who haven't had kids off ever trying! I also though the post-birth descriptions of exhaustion and a total mess in their home as over the top. If couples can manage and keep up (mostly) with dirty dishes and clothes, then three adults should find it a doddle.
Anyway, despite those niggles, and they were just niggles, I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and will definitely read the next one.
