That awkward moment when an ER doctor has to inform you that you’re pregnant…with his baby.
Three things Lynsey Jones knows about the hot doctor: he’s grouchy, an arrogant jerk, and strangely obsessed with pie.
Three things Dr. Josh Richardson knows: he doesn’t talk about his past, he doesn’t do relationships, and the crazy girl in the hospital cafeteria who ate a fistful of French silk pie…is annoyingly irresistible.
After a chance meetup at a bar and a heated cab ride together, things come to a head and now instead of hating each other, they’re horizontal in a bed.
Three months later, the weird cafeteria stalker who crept out of Josh’s house like a thief in the night, winds up as his patient in the ER after her Tinder date from hell.
The doctor is prepared to keep it cool and professional. That is until her bloodwork reveals she’s pregnant.
What really throws him for a loop…is the surprise baby…is his.

“This is my friend, Josh,” Max says, drawing my attention to the enormous man standing in my peripheral.
When I turn toward him, my face contorts into some weird, painful sneer, partly because I’ve still not recovered from my brush with death, but mostly because I’m looking into the stormy eyes of Dr. Dick.
Cue the ominous tones from Jaws.
Max releases my hand, and before I can pull it back, it’s being gripped by the angry doctor apparently named Josh? That name is too human to belong to the likes of him. It would be better suited to a lifeguard who enjoys surfing in his free time. Not some arrogant asshat who walks around being angry with people for eating pie.
His large hand dwarfs mine. His warm palm and long fingers send an anxious shiver rolling through my body all the way to my toes. When my gaze returns to his face, he’s eyeing me from head to toe.
Maybe he doesn’t recognize me.
But the moment he opens his mouth, I realize I’m dead wrong.
“Have a lot of experience tasting a skunk’s ass I take it?” Josh’s deep voice rolls like thunder.
Dean and Max chuckle at the jerk’s attempt at a joke while I narrow my gaze up at him. “You taste one ass, you’ve tasted them all,” I snap.
Wait. What the fuck did I just say?
I blink rapidly, and stammer, “I mean, I didn’t say, not that I taste ass—”
“I understand,” Josh interrupts coolly, his face showing zero amusement. “You’re an expert ass-taster.”
“I’m not an expert ass-taster!” I sputter as my face heats with embarrassment. “That’s not even a thing.”
“Seems like, if it were a thing, you’d be exceptional at it.” Mirth dances in the hot doc’s eyes as he looms over me in all his intimidating, ridiculous-perfectly-proportioned glory.
Is he…flirting with me? I wonder briefly as I stare back at him and begrudgingly admit that he’s even more handsome out of scrubs.
Life is a cruel, cruel bitch today.
“Why the hell do you think I’d be exceptional at tasting ass?” I stand to gain some leverage. Sadly, even with my heels on, I’m still only eye level with his chest.
Stupid, giant, asshole doctor with really long, pretty fingers.
“Excuse me,” Max interjects as the jerk and I stare murderously at one another. “But do you two know each other?”
I grit my teeth. “You could say that.”
The doctor laughs. “After today, I know enough.”
“Good grief.” I lick my lips at how self-righteous he’s being after walking in here only sixty seconds ago. “Are you going to tell me I’m not allowed to sit in a public bar now too?”
He quirks a challenging brow. “It depends if you’re going to be a good girl or a bad girl.”
My ARC Review:
This was my first read by Amy, why the hell I’ve waited so long to read her books I’ll never know, cos let me tell you, this was a fantastic read on lots of levels!! I absolutely loved it!! I’ve laughed and cried, it’s funny and its poignant and heartbreaking. The characters are brilliantly done and you get lost in the story of their ‘relationship’. Seriously, one of my best reads this year, read in one sitting as I couldn’t put it down until it was finished in the wee hours of the morning!
A ‘surprise baby’ read comes in all sorts of shapes and sizes, and to be honest this is one of the best one of those that I’ve read, as it covers from prior to the event, conception, the whole 9 months and then after the birth, not skipping any of the major milestones, which was great for me.
As I’ve said, the characters are brilliant… Dr Josh Richardson, aka Dr Dick, is renowned at the hospital where he works for his abrupt and cold manners, he’s rude and arrogant, he’s also seriously hot, a workaholic and doesn’t do relationships. Lynsey Jones is a bit of a klutz and a geek, looking to finish her thesis and get a job working in child psychology, but the only place she gets inspired to write is in the local hospital cafeteria, where she’s been going for the past 3 months, eating pie whilst there. This is where the two first meet, she’s just finished her thesis and is feeling chuffed, until Dr Dick opens his mouth and ruins it all, she responds by dropping her pie in his groin!
After another chance meeting in a bar, where a verbal slanging match ensues, before they end up sharing a taxi ride, and then sharing a bed for the night!! Lynsey ends up sloping off in the morning whilst he is in the shower. 3 months later she ends up in the ER having had an allergic reaction to some food and Dr Dick turns out to be her doctor, and her blood work shows she is pregnant, and it’s his! All this is in the blurb, so not letting anything out of the bag here!
The story is amazing and has so many different layers to it, you can be laughing your socks off on one page and then crying your eyes out on the next! These two are complete opposites yet fit so well together, if only they could work out how to have a relationship, the only part of this that works well is in the bedroom, where it gets very hot and steamy! As the story unfolds and you get some background, you find Dr Dick is hiding some very important information that makes him the way he is, and his heart starts to thaw and crack and you get to see the man behind his facade.
I can’t recommend this one highly enough, and I will certainly be reading more from Amy.
