Josh and Gemma make a baby
This is my first book by author Sarah Ready…. and boy am I ready for more of her books or what 😊 Gemma Jacobs is a quirky clumsy positive person who finds the silver lining in all that happens around her. Her new year resolution is to have a baby but the twist in the story is that Gemma is single and is suffering from endometriosis which makes IVF her only chance at fulfilling her dream. She is looking for a sperm donor who is not faceless or nameless…. enter Josh Lewenthal Gemma’s childhood crush and her brother’s best friend. Gemma describes Josh as the house plant who is always there around but never ever given any importance to.
Gemma has been badly hurt in her past relationship and her divorce with Jeremy left her damaged. She wants a clear and defined relationship with the father of her child and wants to avoid any kind of emotional baggage. She thinks she is mature and professional enough to pull through with her plans.
I listened to the whole book in just one sitting. It’s a typical Mills and Boon Romcom. The book is funny witty and really hits the spot. Having gone through IVF myself I totally understood where this was coming from…… the mood swings, the anger, the jabs, the pain, the loss, the miscarriages. But the hilarious take on IVF was something I personally think every person undergoing it needs. The easter egg hunt had me laughing like a mad woman. I wish I could read the book ten years back when I was going through the same. I wish my doc was as cool as Dr Ingraham. 😉 The book was read by Erin Mallon….. I loved her!!!! Currently I am looking for Lime Jello…. I just must have it.
I want to thank Netgalley and Swift and Lewis Publication for the free ALC of the book. Also a big thanks to Sarah Ready and Erin Mallon for the wonderful read. I would rate the book a 5/5.
