Claire is a 20-something, single mom who grudgingly helps her best friend sell sex toys while she attempts to make enough money to start her own business to give her foul-mouthed, but extremely loveable (when he's asleep) toddler a better life.
When Carter, the one-night-stand from her past that changed her life forever, shows up in her hometown bar without any recollection of her besides her unique chocolate scent, Claire will make it a point that he remembers her this time.
With Carter's undisguised shock at suddenly finding out he has a four-year-old son and Claire's panic that her stretch marks and slim-to-none bedroom experience will send the man of her dreams heading for the hills, the pair will do whatever they can to get their happily ever after.
Warning: Contains explicit sex, profanity, and enough sarcasm to choke a horse.

What would I do without audio books?!!
I knew this book would have profanity. And I can enjoy some edgy humor as much as the next person, but this book tries too hard and uses explicit language as a crutch on the limping path to humor. I think it could have been funny if it had been dialed back a bit, without EVERY single line sounding snarky and vulgar. If you are looking for a break from the typical cheesy romance novel you might like this, but be aware you’ll have to enjoy or look past the crude writing to get there.
the story has laughs. it also has tons of drinking. the drinking part just gets too stupid. I think , at least for me, it was too distracting.
I liked the characters, the story got to long. the humor ran into the rediculous.
In a word, no. Talent is not required to form sentences where cursing is used every third word and vulgarity is the main theme. It takes talent to write with entertaining and clever humour. There was none of that. There''s nothing wrong with smut when used to enhance a theme but this was just potty mouth level.
I enjoy ckever humour. There was none of that. The characters were supposed to be in their 20's but the dialogue echoed that of badly behaved young teenagers.
I don't know. It was difficult to work out which character was supposed to be speaking as Romy was niot able to moderate her voice to differentiate between the characters.
Multiple scenes but so many there would hardly be anything unchanged.
I read from many genres and a plethora of authors, snd I do enjoy a funny entertaining book. I was looking forward to laughing through a well-written story. This was not it.
The book should carry a disclaimer about the language used. The author must have used every word for sexual anatomy and used them all too many times. A sweet story got lost in the sex talk.
Maybe I wasn't in the moody for this read,. Couldn't get past 2 chapters due to narrator I liked Romy's narration in other books, just found book & narrator incompatible....
More likable characters, better plot and different narrator
Excessive uses of the words, vagina, penis, fuck, shit etc. Too much immature sex talk. Perhaps it's the author's poor attempt to appeal to women that actually "got off" to Fifty Shades of Grey. I've never read this author so maybe it's just her style to write about sex and include as much dirty language as an immature conversation can fit. I'm, by far, not a prude, I'm all for naughty, but I thought it was getting annoying. The four year old's behavior wasn't cute or funny. There almost appeared to be a little psychosis going on. The narrator's voice was irritating and she never changed her tone for different characters.
Before I found the book extremely annoying I did laugh at a few of the lines.
I'm about three quarters of the way through and I'm debating whether I want to drudge through to the end :(
Wasted credit on a terrible book in which the author creates somewhat of an interesting storyline but completely kills it by overindulging in vulgarity and overuse of the word "vagina". She wanted to create a funny love story, but the exaggeration of events was pathetic and in parts embarrassing.
On top of the mediocrity of the book, the narrator manages to completely chop it up to pieces. I think that she too had too much of the "fuck", "shit", "vagina", "penis" words overused in this book and she just gave up on trying to minimally narrate the story so that we all know who's talking and who answering back.
All in all, it was one of the worst Audible experiences.
I always read the reviews and this book had fabulous reviews. However, the book was irritating, slow and just 'bleh'. The book attempted several times to be funny but ended up just irritating me. I dont fine foul mouth 4 year olds funny or the adults around said 4 year old basically encouraging that behavior. Story line was too slow and have a 0 romance level.
the kid! lol
I'm a single mom and architect & to avoid boredom bought a fixer-upper so I LOVE Audible, it is the only way I get to enjoy a book anymore!!
This was painful and disappointing, it appears to have been written by a 13-year-old boy and edited by his mother. I so thoroughly enjoyed Tara Sivec's other books that I expected all of the "So Funny" reviews to be correct. Friends of the author or narrator must have written those reviews. I can only imagine that the lack of bad reviews is due to the fact that people returned this book immediately!
The narration would have been fine if any effort had been made to differentiate from the male and female character. I found myself going back 30 seconds several times to understand why a Claire would now be talking about her penis, only to find out that the chapter changed to Carter.
On the off chance you don’t see this from the other reviews, the overuse of the word vagina and the often childish euphemisms for each and every sexual act and all genitalia are mildly amusing at first and rapidly become irritating.
