Summary: What’s a little sex between friends?
Sophie Fordham never thought much about motherhood until her body forced her to. With the onset of early menopause, she knows if she wants to have a baby, it’s now or never. So what’s a single, financially-strapped girl to do? Go with what you know, of course.
Fox Monkhouse has been Sophie’s gorgeous best friend since preschool. This sun-kissed surfer boy has no shortage of ladies, but she’s hoping he’ll put that aside to help her out. As there’s never been anything romantic between the two, things get awkward when she asks him to put a bun in her oven—especially since it has to be done the old-fashioned, no-pants dance way.
When Fox agrees to do the deed, Sophie is ecstatic. But she soon realizes that this chance at a baby could cost her everything. Keeping sex and emotions separate is clearly not in her wheelhouse especially when her best friend is involved. If their relationship can’t evolve into something new, their unusual arrangement could destroy the friendship of a lifetime.
This Romcom/ contemporary romance story starts off with bad news…early menopause. Not Fox, but his best friend Sophie. That’s not the kind of news you want to hear in your twenties. Single Sophie has to put a rush on trying to conceive if she ever wants a baby of her own.
She tries online dating but those dates only turn out to be failures. But what if Fox is the answer? I mean he has a penis and she needs one to get pregnant, so why not. He wouldn’t have to be involved, just donate some sperm and that’s it.
Only it’s not that simple. But first comes sex and then comes love. Sophie wasn’t excepting to fall for Fox, she has known him since preschool.
This story was okay. The thing that bothered me the most was the banter between Sophie and Fox. It wasn’t funny, it wasn’t cute, it was honestly kind of annoying. I mean they were doing the whole back and forth banter while having sex. Successfully with orgasm….while talking and joking around. I just wasn’t a fan.
I can’t talk about the other things I disliked about the story without going into spoilers, so if you want to hear them, give me a comment after you have read the book.
All in all it was just ‘OKAY’. I wasn’t in love with it.
