You have the right to remain sexy.
Anything you say can and will be used to get you in my bed.
You have the right to use my body to give yourself a delirious, life-changing orgasm.
If you have trouble...don't worry, I'm a bit of an expert in that department.
There's nothing 'thin' about my blue line, if you catch my drift, and trust me, I know how to put those handcuffs to good use.
Livia Ward wants a baby before she’s thirty. And even though Officer Chase Kelly is exactly the kind of cocky jerk this librarian has sworn off, he is undeniably hot. Both of them think they can give each other what they want--a few nights of fun for Officer Kelly, a no-strings baby for Livia--but this hot cop is about to learn that sex, babies, and love don’t always play by the rules.
But, when Sierra Simone writes a book, I love it. And when Laurelin Paige writes a book, I love it. So, them together? Yeah, I loved it. And, I admit, were it not for who was writing this, I may have shied away because of the trope. If this is you, if you are thinking the same thing, I promise you, all of the reasons you don't like the baby storyline (the one dimensional characters you don't like who don't ever seem to really like one another...at least this is why I don't like them) are totally missing here. Fully developed, complex, funny, heartwarming characters are what you get here.
The plot is somewhat as you expect, but there are some twists and surprises along the way, including one at the end that gives the reader a great glimpse into Chase and what he has been thinking all along. You get to know the characters, as it is told in dual pov. And, the time spent with each character is well balanced, so you feel that they are each equally developed by the end.
I will admit that this one made me feel all the feels. I was charmed from the beginning. Chase and Livia have chemistry that just sparks, and their meet cute is absolutely hilarious. Snow White, with bolt cutters. No, I am not making that up, but you are going to have to read the book for that one to be explained. And, it will make you laugh. Their whole first meeting will make you laugh.
There were so many things about this book that I loved. As always, the characters were strong, and they were real, and they acted like you think they should in the situations. And, you can relate to them. I think the reason they feel so real is that the surrounding details make the story feel like real life while maintaining the escape of fiction, including some sexy time scenes that probably should have the "do not try this yourself" warning running in the margins of the book.
But, isn't that why we read? I know it is for me. I read to escape, but also to believe that there could be people out there who are just like the characters in the book. I believe that Chase and Livia are real, and doesn't that make it even more fun?
I recommend this book.
I get why some people might be wary of a book where it clearly states that the main goal of the characters is to get the heroine pregnant. But I'm telling you, give this book a try. It's about so much more than pregnancy-and that's what made me love it.
Livia is one of those characters that got under my skin. I wanted to hang out with this librarian. She's complex and has this almost painful awkwardness at times but it made her completely relatable. There were moments that some of the things she said had me wincing and face palming-which, I'm going to be honest, I expect more from the male character. So I thought that role reversal was a bit fun.
Chase Kelly. WOW. Just wow. The title of the book doesn't do this man justice. He's more than just a pretty face-though initially that's all he wants to be known for. I wasn't expecting him to have the amount of depth he had to be honest. Yes, with these authors I knew he'd be a fully developed and wonderful hero, but there was just way more to him. He absolutely broke my heart at times but he also healed it. I have a weakness for Captain America and Chase Kelly could give him a run for his money in my opinion.
These two together? Perfect. The sparks between them are undeniable and I swear I thought my kindle was going to combust from the heat between them. Their sexy times? Some of the sexiest I've read from these authors-which should tell you something. But there was so much more to them and it was fantastic to watch them navigate their relationship that wasn't a relationship.
The secondary characters added some fun and a touch more sweetness to the story. The pacing was perfect and the writing was sharp and fun-but it was also thought provoking for me in a way I didn't fully expect from this book. I laughed and got teary eyed, which is the sign of a pretty great book for me. I highly recommend this book.
