Claire is a twenty-something, single mom that grudgingly helps her best friend sell sex toys while she attempts to make enough money to start her own business to give her foul-mouthed, but extremely loveable (when he's asleep) toddler a better life.

When Carter, the one-night-stand from her past that changed her life forever, shows up in her hometown bar without any recollection of her besides her unique chocolate scent, Claire will make it a point that he remembers her this time.

With Carter's undisguised shock at suddenly finding out he has a four-year-old son and Claire's panic that her stretch marks and slim to none bedroom experience will send the man of her dreams heading for the hills, the pair will do whatever they can to get their happily ever after.

Warning: contains explicit sex, profanity and enough sarcasm to choke a horse.


I picked up this paperback from an OP shop while I was tagging along for one of mini me’s OP shop adventures. I just hung around the books and picked up a couple good finds. I do remember starting the ebook a gazillion years ago (2012) as I had on my Kindle, but for some reason I never finished it. Certainly not because I wasn’t enjoying it, but being a blogger, maybe a publishers’ book for review was more important at the time.

This is a fun read, made even more quirky by absolutely no page numbers printed on any of the pages, which I gotta tell you was kinda weird and also messed with my theory of reading X amount of pages a night, or simply noting what page number I was up to. I hope to miss that experience ever again with a paperback.

It was really quite odd.

So many reviews and ratings have already been put down for this book. It is a definite poolside read.

Gavin, the four-year-old wonder child is a hoot, even though I shouldn’t condone what comes out of his mouth, but he’s not my kid, so I laugh and can walk away.

He really is a big part of the humor in this book.

The sub characters are all fun and bring their own kind of silly.

Now, Jenny, I found we have something in common (heads-up: Jenny is the character who gets her words mixed up and it can be quite funny), you think a median strip is a medium strip and so have I, my whole entire life—nearly. Who knew it was a median strip? Ya learn something new every day.

What I found very amusing is I don’t know anybody else over where I live that has watched Beavis and Butt-head and when the line: I am the great Cornholio. I am the great Cornholio. I need TP for my bunghole popped up, I had a big giggle. I was waiting for the line : Caaaandy. I need caaaandy. (Beavis and Butt-head humor)

My boys used to walk around with their hoodies up over their heads reciting these lines. Come to think of it, so did my husband.

If you are looking for a quick, fun read, this is the book for you. Nothing is taken seriously and the sex scenes are kinda hot, too.

All in all, this is the type of book that sells well, because we all like a fun read.


  1. I like the cover but I don't know if it is something that would make me pick up the book. I like your review but I do find odd no page numbers on it :(

    1. The paperback was 2012 printed so I would say it was maybe a mistake at the time. I think?? I would think she has rectified this by now. The original cover was strawberries covered in chocolate. It certainly is a different style of cover, but back in 2012, not as many indie books being published so it may have suited the year of release.


We love hearing from you, your comments mean a lot to us.
