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.

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.
I have both read and listened to hundreds of books. I just listened to this book again as it is the funniest book I've ever listened to. The dynamic between the friends in this book makes me want to have them as MY friends. If you only listen to one book on audio, make it this one. The combination of love and humor is perfect.
Was the author an alcoholic? There was a lot of drinking in this book. The book was funny, but it had some story and character development problems. I thought Carter took the news of his son too easy. He never talked about introducing his son to his family. I didn't get a real connection between Carter and Gavin. I did not understand Claire's hesitation in telling Carter about his son. Was it all about her? I didn't like her too much. Carter and Claire's inner thoughts were a little childish at times. It was very ironic how they just met again. Parts of the story seemed disconnected. All in all, it had funny parts. You may enjoy, if nothing else, the humor.
I am an avid audible listener, and have listened to countless books. I have never written a review, but after listening to this book, I felt compelled to forewarn listeners even considering making this purchase.This is easily one of the worst audible book purchases I have ever made. The plot was ridiculous, the narration terrible, and the book was poorly written. To summarize, a college student gets drunk, has a one night fling in order to lose her virginity, gets pregnant, has the child, and then reunites four years later with the father of her child.
What makes this book so horrific is the dialogue between characters. I am surprised that anyone would find this book the least bit funny. In fact, I found myself actually rolling my eyes over and over because the dialogue was just that bad. I think the author was going for a "Sex in The City" kind of feel, where characters are uninhibited and can openly banter about sex. However, these characters were unsophisticated and immature, and the use of profanity was over the top! Every other word was "f___" or "sh__". And there was an absolute obsession with both female and male genitalia. I wish I had a dollar for every time the author used the word "penis" or "vagina". To further compound the problem, the narrator, having little to work with in the first place, was simply awful, sounding more middle-aged than twenty-something. She had no comedic timing nor ability to change vocal inflections when depicting different characters. After getting about one third of the way through, I had had enough! Save you money, buy something else!
I'm going to listen to this again, because it all seems too easy. is there no struggle in this story? granted, I spent half the time trying to figure out who the narrator was. there was little to no change of voice to help me know who was talking. I'll give it another shot, and hope for better
I'm 68, retired & loving it. I love my family & friends, like animals, books, happy hour, Florida, crafting, facebooking & partying.
needs a narrator that can change there voice so you can differentiate between male & female voices.
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.
I am a blogger for Sheila's Book Corner. There isn't a moment that goes by that I am not reading or listening to a book.
Ok so yes the humor is cheesy but well who wouldn't love it!! This book had me laughing from the first page all the way to the end because well hell its real and super funny! The narrator was amazing and brought even more life to this book loved it from beginning to the end.
