World building: 🌏🌍🌎🌍
Character development: 😠😘🤓🥰
Narration Type: Dual Narration
The heroine: Kelsey – she owns her own company that stages homes for real estate companies. She is sort of a man hater, thinking that they all let you down or cheated on you, since her last boyfriend did her wrong. She is going to be the maid of honor in her best friends wedding and plans the bachelorette party including a stripper. She wants to go non-traditional and get a stripper dressed as a doctor instead of a police officer.
The Hero: Aaron – he has a doctorate in neuropsychology. He is good looking and a doctor so most of his friends think he does well with women, but he doesn’t do quite as well as they think since most women hear he is a doctor and expect him to be wealthy, which he isn’t. Though he does make a good living.
The Story: When Aaron’s friend who runs the club where the bachelorette party is being held, asks him for a favor, he gets his doctor coat on and acts as the stripper for the party. He is attracted to the bride to be and ends up hooking up with her, after finding out she is not the bride to be but the maid of honor, since the bride to be couldn’t make it to her own party.
They hook up anonymously and neither knows that they are destined to meet again at the wedding because Aaron is also best friends with the groom. Not to mention the fact that Kelsey agreed to let Aaron stay in her spare room for a few months while he looked for a house to buy, before knowing he was the man that knocked her up after the bachelorette party. I liked the characters and the story. I am a sucker for the secret baby trope, and there were some pretty funny scenes as well.
“Yes mother, she swallowed a fly.
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly,
but rumor has it that she might die.”
This book is told in dual points of view via dual narration and was narrated by Aiden Snow and C.J. Bloom. Aiden Snow has a terrific voice and is very pleasant to listen to. C.J. Bloom is a good narrator, though her voice can get a bit annoying at times, though overall I like her voice and her style.
