The Best Laid Plans by Sarah Mayberry

I like Sarah Mayberry’s writing so I had high hopes for this book, I think I like pretty much all Mayberry books I have read. This book was okay for me, not the greatest, but definitely worth a read if you are a Mayberry fan like myself. I picked this book because I was looking for romances with a baby thrown in, because lets face it babies always make for an interesting challenge in a romance book. Part of what I liked about the characters in this book is that they are both very established people. They are older, so we aren’t talking about immature teens or hasty twenty-somethings. They both have solid careers that they take seriously and are both in a good place to be able to support a family. On paper they look like they are totally ready to be having kids. But of course paper is deceiving. Ethan had a bad divorce that left him pretty jaded about things, and Alex wanted kids with her boyfriend who was totally uninterested, only to turn up on the street one day pushing a baby in a stroller, really making her head spin. This of course leads to these two work friends talking about things, and hey maybe they could have a baby together and raise it as friends, I mean that sounds totally do-able. I love these schemes/plans in books, because there is of course no way they are going to work out, but it’s always fun watching […]

Her Kind of Trouble by Sarah Mayberry

One of these days I am going to read a book by an Australian author and I am going to hate it, thankfully the Aussie’s have a perfect track record with me, never read a book I didn’t like, and Sarah Mayberry follows this trend. I seriously liked this book a lot. I am notoriously bad about reading book-blurbs, I tend to just skim them and buy/borrow/request the book if anything in the blurb appealed to me, and truthfully I didn’t remember reading the blurb for this book at all. So going in I had no idea what to expect. The book starts with Vivian and Seth being young and well, let’s just say, sowing their wild oats and living like free-spirits. There first encounter is hot and steamy, and ends almost as quickly as it started. I was actually really happy when the book skipped 10 years after that time, while their first hook-up worked really well, I don’t think I would have enjoyed the characters as much as their younger selfs, so this was an awesome decision by Mayberry. Vivian and Seth don’t have a fairytale romance in the tradition way most people think of. There is no wining and dining involved at all (well there is some drinking and everyone has to eat, but no really “date nights” that most people would think about). Seth finds himself in one of those terrible and tragic situations that no one ever wants to find themselves in, so much of […]
