The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌎🌏🌍🌎
Character development: 😌🤓😤
The heroine: Melanie – computer programmer who has a one night stand to help getting over the fact that her fiancée left her for her sister. She gets pregnant and is on bed rest for the first five months, so is just getting to telling the father.
The Hero(es): Aiden Bradford – a doctor who shares his practice with his father. He never wants children and after the condom broke, he told Melanie that in no uncertain terms.
The Love Story: Melanie can’t work while on bed rest so when Aiden says he will help by giving her an apartment, she can’t refuse. They go from strangers, to more while she eats her way through the town.
I loved many of the previous books and thought the schtick about the Bradford men always being hungry and able to eat enough for ten men was hilarious. However, in this book it was Melanie who was the foodie. And boy did she eat in this one. At first I thought it was because she was pregnant and carrying a Bradford boy, but she stays just as food obsessed after having the baby.
All I could think of is how much weight she would gain being on bed rest for 9 months and eating junk food non-stop throughout the entire thing. It wasn’t as cute or funny. I know with the Bradford men, it is a non-issue as I know how easy it is for guys to lose weight compared to women. It just seemed to me to be the main theme in this book, not just a side thing that pops up every now and then and made it funny.
Other than that, I liked the crazy Bradford family and thought that storyline was great. Even the storyline about Melanie’s sister was good. Though I just didn’t like it as much as the earlier books from this series. The narration was fine, though it was only one woman and no men. I tend to like it when the POV switches and there are multiple narrators.
