Waking Up Pregnant by Mira Lyn Kelly
In Mira Lyn Kelly's latest book Waking Up Pregnant. We find Jeff Norton trying to comfort a buddy in time of need. Basically, he gives his buddy a quick pep talk and ditches him to spend time with the waitress, Darcy Penn. Now Darcy doesn't normally go out with guys she serves drinks to, but decides to take a chance. They go out, have a great time, and one thing leads to another and she ends up in bed with him. She freaks out while he's in the bathroom and leaves before the awkward moment. Three months later she shows up at his office and tells him she's pregnant, which kind of disrupts his life.
At the beginning of the story Jeff is the ultimate playboy, focusing on what was in front of him. After meeting Darcy, he starts to realize there could be more to life than the playboy mentality. Now Darcy rarely does anything impulsive in her life and the one time she decides to let go; she ends up pregnant. Basically, they are trying to navigate through the pregnancy and try to come up with the best solution.
I like Jeff. He really stepped up in the situation and was willing to bed over backwards for Darcy. Darcy was a bit stubborn about resisting Jeff, and yet she didn't want to sacrifice anything feel like she trapped Jeff in anyway. She was trying to do what was right for the situation they had.
Overall, Waking Up Pregnant is a cutesy read that is sweet. Those who love stories that start in Vegas and end up with a pregnancy might possibly adore this book. So, if you're looking for that cutesy light read, you might try Waking Up Pregnant.
