This book dove deeper into some serious topics, and I think the author handled them very well. I respect her for not breezing over the severity of eating disorders and self image. This is a huge issue in our society today, and while many will find it a mood killer while reading a romance novel - I loved it! I was hoping she would accept help, and rooting for him to be strong enough to handle a woman not ready to be helped.
I adored the honest reactions each had to the pregnancy. I found myself laughing out loud when he made the mistake at telling her she'd be beautiful at any size. I am almost positive this is a word for word conversation from 90% of all first pregnancies. My husband, thankfully, learned after #1. Besides the incredibly fun road to a well deserved HEA, you get to visit with old friends:
- Jason & Claire JUMP to the chance for some alone time while partnering with Beth in proving Nick is
- Suzy & Gray are my favorite couple so far! Full of sass that Suzy and I can just see Gray rolling his eyes saying, "Yes Sweetie." I love the advice the men share amongst themselves as if the women don't know what is going on. Suzy & Gray have some life changing surprises of their own in this sweet book - and I was so elated for them.
- You get some baking time in with the Merimon parents.
- The Dentons will probably make you feel a little bad about yourself.
