The storyline of this book really doesn’t make any sense. The obstacles to the relationship of the two main characters are not plausible and seem to be there only for the author to have a book to write.
At the very start of the book we discover the female character has feelings for her male best friend, who is at the moment involved in a very fresh relationship. The discussion of relative feelings between the two is triggered by the jealous girlfriend being weary of the best friend, which leads to the two protagonists having sex… he tells her he loves her but then disappears in shame for having cheated on said girlfriend. This 3-months-long relationships (not a multi-years one or a marriage, which both could have made sense) is the first of the "insurmountable" obstacles.
Then, they do it again only to ignore each other once more afterwards, and fall apart badly.
After only a month the female heroin is already over the love of her life, and former best friend, and falls in love for a colleague (REALLY?!) , they date for about a week, not kidding, before she discovers of being pregnant with former-best-friend’s baby. She decides to reveal the news only to her new boyfriend and not to the father. The colleague/boyfriend of course decides to step up and play the role of daddy for someone else’s baby. Yep, that must have been the week of his life.
Please stay tuned for even more absurdity… when she finally tells the real father, he is ready to be with her and profess his love after a very brief initial freak out moment, at this point of course his girlfriend has dumped him, but unfortunately we have a new 3-or-so-months relationship standing in the way of true love. In fact, female heroine decides she cannot dump her new boyfriend for the father of her baby… why? Impossible to tell!! The poor reader at this point has to witness doctor appointments with mother father and mother’s boyfriend, the latters of course battling for her.
At one point along the line she randomly dumps the boyfriend for no apparent reason, and the remaining of the book is the predictable set of a wedding proposal, baby birth, and immediate aftermath.
If all of this wasn’t enough the book also lapses sideways spending pages talking about the female character’s baby sister travelling the world. Why? Nobody knows, nobody cares…
We also have some background story about the estranged father of the two sisters, boring and as useless to the plot as the sister’s travels.
But I wanted to save the best absurdity for last… in the end the boyfriend/colleague that was so deeply in love that he was ready to play the role of father for the baby of another man turns out to be in fact in love with the little sister instead and ends up with her!!
