Baby Love Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Unlike her previous book, this one has erotic thoughts but no action and I am fine with that. Frankly speaking, I find erotica often repetitive and dull if not delivered with a deft hand.
Emmanuelle has written a funny book, with human frailty and human observations. I was transported back to my own late stage of pregnancy and placed myself in her protagonist's shoes. Except for feeling as if I read three chapters of a book and not the entire thing, I highly recommend this to those who have lived through pregnancy and yet retained their libidos. It is also a nice trip through the Cornish coast.
Baby Love is written in the style of a diary and also uses text and phrasing as if you had written your own diary, cutting out all the 'me's and 'I's which are obvious really.
Delphine's husband is good looking and good in the sack, he knows it as well as Delphine . . . and so does the lady next door! It's terrible timing when at Christmas, Delphine finds herself pregnant and husbandless. I'm sure we've all made the wrong choice of bloke somewhere along the line and can feel for the bleak outlook of her life. I loved Delphine as a character, she didn't deserve the hand she'd been dealt, and I sympathised with her situation. Delphine has hit rock bottom when her well meaning sisters come to the rescue and cause more hilarity at the spa they've booked the three of them into.
Overall, a very good and funny story with moments of pathos. The wry outlook on life and the ironic humour makes this a well worth satirical read.
The writing is interesting, done in the first person with a slightly different sentence structure that really made the character come to life. It almost read like a diary. For example, instead of saying "I went to the store and.....", the author writes "Went to the store and.....". It's not much of a difference but it was something that I felt added to the tone of the book. The book is actually written as a narrative from a mother to her unborn child.
I loved the depth of the characters (see my rant about hating the husband, above) and the descriptions of character and scenes brought it all to life. There is some pretty sexy thoughts going on here and plenty of innuendo, but no overt sex descriptions.
Warning: This book contains cheating, which is actually part of the main story line. There is no HEA and there is a cliffhanger that will have you groaning at the end, wishing the book was twice as long.
I received an advanced reader copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
