This one was all right Shelly has been in love with her best friend and coworker, Kurt, for a few years She wants a baby and asks him, but he turns her down When his ex wife tries to prevent him from seeing his son though, he asks Shelly to marry him so that he ll look like a better parent to the judge deciding the case She agrees and they turn out to be very compatible.It really was OK reading, but there were some things I really didn t like The first is that when Shelly originally asked Kurt for the baby, he turned her down cold Which I think was his right, and he did comfort her subsequently and do his best to cheer her up, promising her that she d meet the right guy eventually However, then when custody for his kid comes up, he immediately figures out that marrying Shelly will make perfect sense and he reasons that he ll be willing to swap favors That kind of made him seem really selfish to me Also, when he said no that first time, he really seemed to have an attitude that Shelly would be better off never having kids than being a single mom What s wrong with single moms exactly She was an educated, financially stable thirty two year old woman His platitudes you ll find the right man and thank me later for this really seemed cheap and unrealistic And his quick turnaround made me feel like, Oh, so making a baby isn t a big deal to you then, as long as you get something out of it The next thing I disliked was that when Shelly agreed to marry him, they agreed to meet the next day to talk things over and at that meeting, he simply says, You ll be turning in your notice on Wednesday Kurt is a surgeon and Shelly is a physical trainer He s a bit of a workaholic and has a crazy schedule because he has to rush in a lot of the times when there s been an accident It pissed me off that on the one hand, his job meant so much to him and he made clear from the start that his hours were crazy and that she would have to be accommodating, but then on the other hand, he totally disregards her own job Shelly puts up a half hearted, Well I ll keep it part time, and then later realizes that he was right to demand she cut down on her hours because decorating the house was taking SO MUCH of her time Heaven forbid his house shouldn t be decorated She went from a physical therapist to a woman who was spent her whole day cooking her husband s meals, doing housework, and catering to his spoiled, unhappy son s needs whenever the kid s visiting In a book that was published recently, that s just not palatable for me At least until she got pregnant, she should have kept the job full time.Sorry if I seem like a rabid feminist Things like this will really ruin a romance novel for me though. For all of us who enjoy books about friends who become lovers and make it work, A Mutual Favor by Ann Jacobs would be a worthy additional to your reading list She does a great job of depicting the growth of love and how it s the constant little things that mean so muchthan a rare big gesture I would, however, categorize this asromantica really really sexy romance vice erotica.She wants a baby, he needs a wife When Shelly asks Kurt to father the child she desperately wants, he freaks But thehe thinks about it, thehe realizes the act would be no chore And in order for Kurt to be grantedvisitation with his son, his lawyer has recommended he marry Since he s certainly not going to fall in love, what could be better than marrying his best friend Very enjoyable, if sometimes typical, romance.
