The Stork Reality

Rating 5

Taylor Montgomery never intended to get pregnant-she’s got too much invested as a creative director at a top Dallas advertising company. Her husband, equally ambitious Jake, is a lawyer who shares Taylor’s priorities: “[w]ork, sex, travel,” is their happy routine. After those fateful pink lines appear on a test strip, it threatens everything: prenatal pressure drives Jake away, threatens Taylor’s job and leaves her an emotional wreck. The next several months follow the couple rediscovering their value to each other, developing more intimacy and honesty, and embracing their new lives. Unfortunately, the story does only what you expect it to, conflicts are easily smoothed over and supporting characters are strictly of the heart-of-gold variety-even the ultracompetitive lawyers at Jake’s firm and the vain womanizer Taylor works with.

REVIEW: I picked this book up on a whim when I was searching the library for her other book that has been plastered all over about 5 different blogs on their TBR piles. It took me a bit to get into as the subject matter is a sensitive one for me, I can’t get pregnant due to endometriosis that claimed my uterus and ovaries, so I sometimes have a hard time reading books that are all about pregnancy. That being said I loved this book. It made me laugh and it made me cry. It is one that is going on the must buy pile. The best part for me was when….nope not going to give it away. I can safely say that whether you have ever been pregnant or not, you will love this book.
