After reading many, many reviews on this book, I was anxious to dive in! I am not going to go into great detail on the actual story as there are hundreds of reviews out there already that say the same things that I would about that.

I will say that the first part of the book did not grab me. There were many times that I was ready to put the book down and walk away. I understand that the medical details is a huge portion of the story line, but after a while I got bored with all of that detail. Now don't get me wrong, I understand how it was important to the overall story line, it was just a bit much for my taste.

Once I reached the midpoint of the story, as the boys got older my attention was grabbed. I kept going because I really needed to find out how it all ended. That is just me - I can't leave a book or a movie unfinished as I need that closure to the store. I am glad that I finished it so see everything come full circle. In fact, the last few chapters kept me up late reading because I didn't want to put the book down

What a fun read! This book has a great balance for romance with comedy that keeps you reading. When I realized that I finished this book in 2 days I decided that I better pick up a few more from this series!!
