At thirty years old, caterer Lexie Baump has a lot on her plate. With a business to run, she doesn’t have time for any added distractions. But one momentary indiscretion adds a little hiccup to Lexie’s plans. She’s pregnant. With no relationship prospects.
But if Lexie thought fighting morning sickness while running a catering business was hard, enter Dr. Fletcher Haybee. Their connection is instant, and their love of vintage rock tee shirts and Elvis music is enough to bond them for life. There are just two minor problems.
One: he’s dating her oversexed best friend. Two: he’s also her obstetrician.
With events to cater, awkward OB appointments to endure, and her ever-growing baby bump making it impossible to close her jeans, Lexie has to find a way to curb her undeniable attraction toward Fletcher and focus on her new role as a working mother. But it certainly isn’t easy when its clear Fletcher himself feels the same magnetic pull toward Lexie.
Can Lexie leave the gorgeous Fletcher for her best friend to chew up and spit out, or will she cave to her feelings and find love in the stirrups? Life is about to get messy, and we’re not just talking about crumbs in the car seat…

  1. Oooh, it would be really hard to beat the ob/gyn for awkward places to meet guys! For me it’s not so much the where I am as the what I look like–you always run into people you’d like to impress when you’re wearing old clothes (usually also covered in pet hair, unbeknownst to me), no makeup, having a bad hair day, and with a fresh crop of PMS pimples, don’t you? Or is that just me?

    Please say it’s not just me!

  2. Meeting a guy at a wedding or a rehearsal dinner can be awkward as well. Especially if it’s the groom to be or someone else in the wedding party.

  3. being set up by a friend with their friend who just “happens” to turn up – after you have already told them your not interested in their “friend”

  4. At the dentist? It would be very awkward and embarrassing if he heard me screaming ..I hate dentists:((
    Thank you for the awesome giveaway!

  5. At the doctors, to much information already known.

  6. At his parent’s house. I’ve done it & it wasn’t pretty I’ll tell you.

  7. Let’s see, awkward meetings…
    At a party I didn’t want to go to, for a girl I wasn’t particularly friends with, when I was interested in somebody else.
    But hey, we’re married now. Thirteen years and still going strong. Just goes to show, if it’s meant to be, it’ll happen no matter what. I was meant to go to that party 16 years ago…

  8. I think the way I met my husband was pretty awkward. I agreed to a blind date, because I was a chef who worked when all the singles were partying. When he turned up on my doorstep I was shocked, because he was older than I’d been told (only 6 years, but that’s a lot when you’re 18 yo). He presented me with flowers and we suffered the 1st date questioning over too loud music. I admit to torturing the poor guy by asking him to order a screaming orgasm cocktail, but luckily he was frightened off. The rest is history.

  9. In line at the chemist with something embarrassing in your hand, like ‘stool softener’ or thrush treatment? That would have to be pretty awkward haha. Love the whole idea behind the book, having just been preggers. Never would have dreamt up such a cracker of a plot idea – even while waiting for countless hours in my ob-gyn’s reception area! Then again, my ob-gyn was female hehe…

  10. Bridget O'Neill

    I would think it would be very awkward to meet a man at an ex or boyfriend’s house 😉

  11. And the winner is…. Mary Preston! Congrats, we’ll be in touch 🙂

    Thanks to everyone for dropping by, and don’t forget to check out Brooke’s book to see how the character handles this ‘awkward’ situation. 😉
