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.

Absolutely love to read, anything! Well maybe not Western or biographies but other than that anything. Dystopian is quickly becoming my fav!
This story is very funny and very raunchy. I listened to it on audio and probably would have liked it better if I had read it.
Her limited vocabulary. It seemed that EVERY OTHER word was "Fuck", "Vagina" or "Dick/Penis". The actual story line was good and I was interested in it, but if felt like the author went overboard with the explicit words. In my opinion it was unecessary and took away from the story. I won' be reading any of her other books because of it.
Th narrator did a horrible job. Voice distinction was poor. It was hard to tell when the different characters were talking and made it confusing at times. Aside from that for the first couple of hours is sounded as if she was just reading the story. Her delivery was flat and there were times that funny things were said or thought and it took me a minute to realize it becuase of her narration.
Definitely! I think all my friends with Kids should listen (read) this book.
Drew cracks me up... Only because I have a friend just like him. Inappropriate t-shirts and all...
Kind of disappointing.
Titillation and Tasty Treats
The book itself is absolutely hilarious! One of the funniest books I've read(listen to). The book is full of laugh out loud moments. Romy is doing well narrating the book. However, there are times with the book switches characters and it takes a minute which character she's portraying. I wish she could/would distinguish between her male and female voices. To my ears they’re all the same. Either way, I’ve enjoyed this book so much, I’m downloading the next one right now. Happy Listening!
If she had someone else narrate it.
It was very hard to distinguish between some of the people. I would be listing along and have to sit back and figure out who was talking the first few times it happened I actually had to skip back.

No...it's the same story but I wasn't crazy about the narrator's voice.
Oh wow...just one? Let's just say it involves Claire, Carter, sexy times and almost getting caught by a TV news camera and reporter.
I wasn't crazy about it - the ladies voice is NOT Claire...and it was almost bordering on annoying. I dealt with it but...yeah, not my fav...which sucks because I LOVE the story.
Story - yes...the narrator...no.
HILARIOUS trilogy - if you love romantic comedies, this is one of the best IMO.
Read A Book
This book was so funny that at times I was crying from laughing so hard. However, the absolute pointless use of profanity was distracting. I have no problem with books that contain "explicit sex, profanity, and enough sarcasm to choke a horse," but it began to feel like I was listening to a pack of 12 year old boys who were in a contest to see how many times they could use raunchy language in a sentence. It became extremely tiresome. And really, 4 year olds using profanity or talking about their body parts constantly just isn't funny.
The other big flaw was the fact that the parts of the book which are from the male point of view aren't distinguished the female's point. Sometimes this switch happens in the middle of a chapter. Having an actual male read the parts of the book from Carter's point of view would have made it much less confusing.
I have a busy career, travel a lot and don't have much time to read, so I listen to Audio books. I love reading!
It was raunchy, hilarious, true to life and a good light hearted listen.
I just loved Drew, Carter, Liz, Claire, Jenny, Jim the Dad George and that little terror Gavin.
I found her voice to be a bit gravelly, with an older sound to it and she isn't too good at character differentiation.. sometimes I got a bit lost and played cathc up on who was speaking..
Oh I would take that Dad George.. hmmm.... ( ok, so I'm his age) what can I say.. ex Nam, Built like a brick sh@t house.. OMG..
This was a really good listen, very true to life, quite raunchy and yes we all have wandering minds when we have sex.. Does my tummy look flat enough? Hope I don't fart.. I shouldn't have eatn all of those dried prunes.. lol!
I'm not sure what the author was trying to accomplish here. It was like she was trying to write a Harlequin romance, but in a porn-y, frat boy kind of way. The narrator's elfish voice didn't help the story. If I hear the word 'penis' or 'vagina' one more time, I think I'll throw myself off of a bridge. Definitely not my type of book. So disappointed - seemed like a good plot summary, but this book falls flat on so many levels. I couldn't even finish it. I guess the audience that this would appeal to would be a 22 year old frat boy, or a 15 year old horny kid with no imagination. I was bored and uninterested by the second chapter. Save your credits if you're a grown up.
There was no attempt at giving the characters didn't voices. After a while, I found her tone and inntonation to be quite annoying.
The vapid Jen or Liz or whatever her name was. Drew. Carter. Claire. The dad. The kid, Gavin. There wasn't anyone I liked, or could tolerate.
Worst. Book. Ever.
I enjoy mysteries, NOT thrillers, contemporary fiction, especially about diverse cultures, and sometimes history, if it doesn't involve too many dates. I often listen to a book multiple times, discovering unnoticed details in the retelling.
Someone who wanted to hear about sex in every paragraph of the story.
I couldn't get past constantly hearing about sex and not much else. A stronger focus on developing and presenting an interesting story would be a real improvement.
I couldn't get past the content to really evaluate the performance adequately. I'm sorry the narrator was stuck with this title.
Yuck! I should've read a bunch of reviews and listened to the Sample.
I had a hard time following the narrator through this story. She did not do a good job of differentiating the male voices from the female characters. I had to purchase the kindle edition to ffinish the story. The story was cute. I read it twice.
