“Never has a one-night stand led to such chaos!
Childhood sweethearts Matthew and Katy agree they must never see each other again after they end up in bed together following a school re-union.
So all is forgotten… until eight months later when a shock meeting at an antenatal class forces them to confront the fact that Matthew could be the father of Katy’s baby. Oblivious to the mayhem unfolding, Matthew’s highly-strung wife frets over giving birth to twins and Katy’s much younger boyfriend refuses to take fatherhood seriously.
Love and life are messy but Katy and Matthew take things to a whole new level as deep emotions begin to resurface and hormones run riot.
How will they navigate their way through this almighty cock-up?”
Firstly I’d like to thank the author for sending me this eBook to read and give an honest review. I had originally seen a review for this book on Reading In The Sunshine and thought it sounded like something I would enjoy so when the author contacted me to ask if I would like a copy I jumped at the chance!
Within the first few pages I was already laughing out loud and this continued throughout, it definitely contained my kind of humour. Katy’s boyfriend Ben was quite a bit younger than her and while she enjoyed his playful behaviour, it sometimes grated on her. I absolutely loved his inappropriate comments especially during the antenatal classes, it was so entertaining and I couldn’t stop laughing as I pictured the scene in my mind.
I liked Katy, she didn’t always make the best decisions but I felt that her heart was always in the right place. Her gay friend Daniel had to be my favourite character because he was just so funny, the author had written him in such a way that it was impossible not to visualise his over the top behaviour and that made it even more amusing for me. I changed my opinion on Matthew many times throughout the book, there were times that I liked him and times when I wanted to throttle him!
There were so many fun parts, some of my favourite moments included: Ben’s logic on why no-one ever had sex on a Tuesday, the school reunion, scenes involving a stuffed puffin, an awkward dinner party, a hilarious telephone conversation between Daniel and a guy named Braindead (also a very funny character) and finally Katy going into labour (I was crying with laughter over the events that followed).
Aside from all the jokes and laughter there were some very sweet and touching moments that outlined the delicate nature of the storyline beautifully, this is what made the book more than just a comedy in my eyes. Another good thing was that I couldn’t predict the outcome – I continuously switched opinions on how it would or should end so it definitely kept me on my toes.
This was a down-to-earth, funny book that I couldn’t put down, I look forward to more from this author!
