Prudence Carlson has been lucky in life. A fulfilling wedding-planning business run with her girlfriends in Colorado, plus the best guy friend ever in her firefighter bestie Finn. All that’s missing from it is a baby. Luckily, it’s the twenty-first century–Pru can take matters into her own hands. She doesn’t need to find true love to create the future love of her life.

Except all this talk of babies and insemination and…Pru and Finn cross a line they never expected to. Sure, one night of passion won’t change their close friendship. Until Pru goes in for a fertility check-up to find…she’s already pregnant. 

As best friends, Pru and Finn have survived college, new jobs, and bad breakups, but can they survive crib shopping, birth classes, and late-night cravings. Especially when Finn has never considered himself even remotely Daddy material?

Finn is a sweetheart. Yes, Pru’s plan throws him a little but he is supportive of her 100%. And he’s the less structured of the 2 friends, so he helps Pru with her wild side.

Pru has a plan; she’s going to get a sperm donor so she can start having the children she wants to have. She is the planner, everything she does has been well thought out, documented and thoroughly vetted before she commits an act. So, you know that she has almost obsessively planned to get the in vitro fertilization done and all the contingencies for being a single mother.

Finn and Pru are a perfect couple just waiting to realize that they are in love with each other. I hope that Mo and Lilly get stories in this series also!

4 stars!
