Summary: "Thirty-five-year old kindergarten teacher Casey Samms has always dreamed about having her own baby. With her copy of A Young Woman’s Guide to the Joy of Impending Motherhood on her bedside table, Casey has been steadily wading through the pool of eligible bachelors for years—with absolutely no luck. Now as she bids farewell to a cheating boyfriend and to dating in general, Casey just needs to figure out how to get pregnant without having a man in her life. Casey immediately discounts her male friends as potential fathers and decides to pursue having a baby the artificial way, even though her sister and friends do their best to try to talk her out of it. But Casey is determined to see her dream come to fruition and begins looking at every male as a potential donor. Just when she is beginning to give the word desperate an entirely new meaning, an old ex-boyfriend, David Mason, saunters back into her life. All Casey has to do now is try to convince him that he is the one who can help her become a mother. As Casey prepares to realize her lifelong dream, she is about to get the surprise of her life—a surprise that changes everything."
Review: Casey Samms, the 35-year-old main character, desperately wants a baby, and it seems like she'll go through whatever lengths it takes to have one. Casey is a Kindergarten teacher who also manages a wine boutique in the afternoons. She has an older sister named Libby, two best friends, Brit (such a brat) and Morgan. Casey also stays with her two guy friends, J.B. and Cooper. I don't want to give too much of the story away, but I absolutely LOVED this novel! It's a must read for any woman. Although I'm nowhere near the stage in my life that Casey is in, I found her character to be completely relatable and downright entertaining. There were definitely some traits in Casey that I noticed that I have, which made me love her even more. Overall, I loved this novel and the characters (even Brit--a little) because they were so down to earth. This is by far the best book I've read in 2013! I highly recommend this novel!!
