"Girl meets boy, girl sleeps with boy (even though she's not that kind of girl), girl falls for boy even though she doesn't want to. . . because girl wants a baby. . . but boy does not. That's when things REALLY get interesting and the plot moves in ways I didn't expect." --Goodreads Reviewer
Sabrina Mayerson is turning 40, and all she wants for her birthday is one night of hot, sweaty, twenty-something sex. Twenty-eight-year old Andrew Whelan is happy to oblige. But when one night becomes a weekend, and a weekend turns into a relationship, Sabrina knows she's in trouble. Because Sabrina's desire for Andrew is rivaled only by her desire for a child. And the responsibility of fatherhood is something Andrew definitely does not want.
Sure, Andrew's young, and maybe he'll change his mind . . . in time. But time is the one thing Sabrina cannot give him. Her clock is ticking and forcing her to choose--the love of her life or motherhood.
With colorful characters, pitch-perfect dialogue, razor-sharp observations, and her signature wit, Beth Orsoff crafts the perfect beach read sure to leave readers with a smile.
And yet Gwen can’t shake the nagging feeling that saying yes to this man could lead to more than she bargained for. She knows so little about him—and the idea of spending six weeks in the land of Dracula and Vlad the Impaler is more than a little creepy. But the legends of Romania will be the least of her concerns if she doesn’t make some money…fast. And so Gwen says yes: yes to the job, yes to a European excursion…and yes to a summer that will change her path forever.
With her trademark crackling dialogue, exotic locations, and knack for realistic characters, Beth Orsoff delivers an engrossing tale of love, intrigue, and betrayal. This is not your typical chick lit tale. This is something new. This is gothic chick lit.
