The heroine: Lynsey Jones – suffering from writers block while writing her Psychology thesis paper, she finds that she is finally able to write the cafeteria of the hospital while waiting on her mother’s colonoscopy. So she returns every day for the next three months to do her writing.
The Hero: Dr. Josh Richardson (a.k.a. Dr. Dick) – He notices Lynsey writing every day in the cafeteria of the hospital where he works and thinks Lynsey must be crazy. Though he makes no bones about telling her what he thinks of her.
The Story: Lynsey thinks the Doctor is hot, but is insulted when they first meet. She had just finished her thesis when he sat down and acted all grouchy. Things didn’t get better when she sees him again that night while she is out celebrating with her friend. They trade insults and end up sharing an uber and have a one-night stand.
Josh reminded me of a young Alex Karev from Grey’s Anatomy, with the face and body of Captain Awesome from Chuck. I didn’t understand his animosity toward Lynsey at first, but I liked that the two of them could banter and bicker like they did.
This book was told in dual points of view via dual narration. The narration was done by Teddy Hamilton and Erin Mallon who both do a wonderful job with these two crazy characters. They were both pretty funny. I loved when Lynsey sneaks out of Josh’s house on the morning after when he is in the shower after accidentally answering his phone when his Mom calls.
I love the surprise baby trope. I am not as fond of the secret baby, because I hate it when the woman keeps her pregnancy and/or baby a secret from the father. It is a bit smarmy in my opinion. So this one was good and the way they find out is great. This book was pretty steamy for a pregnancy rom-com. I liked everything about it.
