    1. Really cute story. I enjoyed the fun, cartoonish plot of what Jax did for a living but I confess, I did figure it out right away even it isn't 'revealed' until towards the middle of the book. I loved the characters of Jax, Tracy, Ryan and Jax's family. The Professor was a little uptight, part of the plot, but I was rooting for her by the end, so it was all good.A nice, funny escape from every day, just what I look for in a book.

    2. Cute, funny, interesting characters--a good read despite the very similar plot to a Susan Elizabeth Phillips book. I'll check out another to find out if she has some original plots

    3. Personally, I liked the book as a whole. There were some parts in the middle that dragged on, but there were also many exciting parts. It started out with an interesting idea and some relatable emotions to get you engaged. However, after the opening event happened, things slowed down. The beginning event was when Marietta became pregnant by Jax. She didn't know who Jax actually was, but he eventually figured out Marietta's plan to get pregnant and raise the baby on her. Jax grew up fatherless, s [...]

    4. This is book equates to your biology book, highlighting procreation of animals! Haha Really, those biological phrases are still floating in my head. Marietta's witty comeback elicits an reaction as "really?" or "oh wow slash hell". She's got the BRAINS. But so out of reason when it comes to males and love, that even when I was reading I was slowly getting frustrated.Daniel's joke was unfunny even to me :) Who would think laughing at a hulk-like man who' s got the looks? He's really persistent in [...]

    5. This book was a bad experience. The story is cliche and the characters flat. I'd written a longer reivew and the interweb ate it. Everything about my experience with this book (from the reading to the trying to review) is annoying. I got the book because of 5 star reviews on - well they were wrong. There are no 'laugh-out-loud' moments in this book. For those like me, compelled to read to the end thinking "it must pick up, why would someone rate it so highly". it doesn't pick up. I can't even b [...]

    6. With its farout but intriguing premise, this book grabbed my attention for awhile, but the characters became one-sided and stale after the first few chapters. Jax was almost too perfect, but I looked forward to him becoming a father and more heartfelt moments. How disappointing that the book ended abruptly with the couple together but the baby still months from being born! Even a short epilogue would have made a huge difference.

    7. Cute engaging story, definitely a fun read. My only complaint is getting sick of hearing the perfection of Jax's physical attributes listed again and again. The characters were likable and I cared about them, I even grew to appreciate Marietta by the end which is a testament to good writing!

    8. This was an enjoyable comedy. I laughed until I cried.It was an emotional roller coaster.This was short, sweet, and to the point.

    9. This is so trashy, I can't believe that I'm admitting to reading it. Definately not "literature" but a nice escape from reality. Very predictable, but a good escape nonetheless.

    10. The best thing I can say about this book is that I've never read characters exactly like these before. And that I finished it.

    11. This was a cute romance story. Thoe story was original and the characters were likable.A nice quick read about a man and woman who inevitably fall in love.
