Book Description

(This is book 1 of a series. Though it is a stand alone novel, it is best if followed up by book 2, Apples & Oranges, and then book 3, Then & Now. Happy reading!)

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...


Editorial Reviews

About the Author

"I write because if I don't...my head will explode, and ruin the drapes." Brooke writes complex, character-driven stories about kismet, reunited lovers, first love, and the kind of romance that we should all have the chance at finding. She prefers her stories laced with some humor just for fun, and enough drama to keep her readers flipping the pages, and begging for more. When Brooke isn't spinning tales, she spends her time drawing/cartooning, reading, watching movies then comparing them to books, wrangling five kids, mugging on one hubby she lovingly refers to as her "nerd", and attempting to conquer the Mount Everest of laundry that is the bane of her existence. Brooke is also an avid Autism Awareness advocate, and a passionate foster/adoptive mother, who loves to share her experiences with anyone who will listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unconventional, sweet, and packed with LOL moments! June 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Lexie Baump is thirty, successful, and after an epic indiscretion... pregnant. After a messy divorce she pulled herself up by the boot straps and started her catering company, Eats & Sweets, with her best frenemy, Marisol. Getting pregnant with no baby-daddy is a complication she really doesn't need. But this might be her one chance at motherhood and with the support of her cousin, Candace, she's determined to embrace it. First step, seeing her new obstetrician.

Dr. Fletcher Haybee, however, turns out to be everything Lexie could want in a guy. He's kind and quirky... and drop-dead gorgeous. With her mom trying to force a husband on her at every turn, morning sickness that lasts all day, and her busy catering schedule, it's only natural that she'd pretend no interest when Marisol decides she wants Fletcher. But the spark between them won't be denied as things grow ever more complicated right alongside her protruding baby bump.

It's no secret that I might just be Brooke Moss' number one fan. She's the author who pulled me from the paranormal shelves into more contemporary waters with her humorous and heartfelt, THE WHAT-IF GUY. Since then I've come to love her way of making people, not just characters, come to life on each page. They're funny and geeky, sexy and somber, thrust into situations that are relatable and emotional. And she's done it again with BABY & BUMP.

If you've ever had a surprise pregnancy you'll immediately empathize with Lexie. That's one of those really emotionally tumultuous things that blends fear and joy and anger and excitement into one big indescribable mess and I was feeling it right alongside Lexie.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but August 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed most of the book. I do agree with the other reviewer that found Marisol annoying. The heroine winds up pregnant after a one night stand with her ex-husband. I know that is possibly even though it is hard to imagine knowing most exes. The hero is the OB/GYN she goes to, to confirm her pregnancy.

He is a hunk with a 9 year old daughter and a huge dog. A great guy in every sense of the word. Marisol, the town slut with no thought for anyone but herself. A very selfish, self-centered female that calls herself a friend of the heroine.

She attends an appointment with the heroine and immediately makes a big play for the doctor, asking him out, etc. Naturally, being a male he is taken in by her boobs. I will give her this bit of credit, she asks the heroine if she is interested in him and she says no. In her defense, here she is pregnant, no one knows the father, and she is not the hottest candidate for date material in the town. So interested or not, how much good is it going to do for her.

So Marisol goes for him. She calls to arrange all the dates, she plans the man's part in all actions. She doesn't like his "kid" and wants to get rid of her. She can't stand the dog and wants him to get rid of it. In fact, the only thing she really likes about him is the fact that he is a doctor and I suppose has a high earning potential. But she decides that maybe it is time to settle down, him being a doctor and all. He has expressed NO interest in her but this is not to be worried about. She wants him, she will get him. Don't you just love her?????

All of this was okay. It was near the end of the book that I really got annoyed. Marisol is the town slut, dates and sleeps with several guys a week and is proud of it.

I reviewed this book at MustReadBooksOrDie with my amazing friend Shelley. We like to talk to each other :D.

Shel: Well, Courtney we've read several chick lit novels over the last few days and I think this is probably one of my favorite ones we've read. It was really entertaining and sweet.

Court: Most definitely. I really enjoyed it, and was wondering how in the world the MC was going to pull this one off...since the blurb says her BFF is the one currently dating the good doctor....girl code violation commences---uh oh!

Shel: This novel follows the story of Lexie a successful caterer, divorcee, and soon to be single mother who refuses to tell anyone who the baby's daddy is (much to the frustration and fury of her friends and family). Court: I was glad she held out as long as she did! You'd have thought they were actually going to die by not knowing, and in the end I was surprised to find out who it was.

Shel: When her cousin and best friend, Candace, takes her to see Dr. Fletcher Haybee an OB (and friend of Candace and Brian), the sparks fly between Lex and Fletcher. That was a great scene, Lexie's thoughts and reactions are giggle inducing.

Court: I would be mortified...which is why I choose to see a female gyno...even married I couldn't handle a hot doctor all up in my lady business...anyways, more of Lexie's thoughts are so dang funny...I especially remember her comparisons to the commercials of people finding out they're pregnant, and her own experience with this. Ladies, I'm sure you can relate a bit to that one...!

Shel: Then Lexie's business partner, other best friend, and man-eater, Marisol, joins her on her next appointment--and the love triangle begins. This is where things get a little hard to watch.
