Blurb; Midlife crisis? What midlife crisis?
At forty-four, Cynthia Smart is exactly where she wants to be. Almost.
In a couple of years, she’ll be the CEO of the company she’s spent most of her adult life working in. For now, though, she’s still busy shimmying up the greasy pole of corporate business. She’s single, carefree, and independent, and nothing can stop her getting what she wants and deserves.
Until she discovers she’s pregnant.
Determined to have her cake and eat it, she’s convinced that having a baby will make little difference to her life, and that she will be one of those women who can hold down an incredibly demanding job and also be a perfect mother.
But as her pregnancy progresses and her life slowly falls apart, she has the sneaking suspicion that Max Oakland, the new guy on the block, is out to steal her dream job. That she’s terribly attracted to him doesn’t help, nor does the fact that he’s devilishly handsome, appears to be a really nice fella, and is good in a crisis.
When she gradually comes to realise that something has got to give, what she doesn’t want it to be is her heart.
My Review; This book had me laughing out loud in parts, light hearted. Feel good. Heart warming. Uplifting. Beautiful.
This is a romance with a twist. Main character Cynthia is dealing with an unexpected pregnancy, she never thought she would have a child. She thought she was past her time. She is/was a very career driven woman aiming to climb up the career ladder. She has plenty of decisions to make. She’s torn between going it alone and not.
Cue Max entering her story as a work colleague. Dun dun dun… He is about to turn her world upside down. But surely she can’t when she’s pregnant with someone elses child… WELL. Lets just say this book raised my expectations of men way too high! Not possible.
The whole story is beautiful and the happy ending made this book for me. Perfection. I really enjoyed reading it. A lovely light hearted read. A well deserved four stars. Highly recommend.
