RATING: BUY IT
“Doctor! Oh, doctor! I’m burning up. I think I’m coming down with something. Shall I take my pants off because I need a physical?”
Yes, yes, yes!! New #BookBoyfriendAlert!! Dr. Christian Gallagher, I’m having heart palpitations . . . hurry and rescue me!!
All joking aside, Jeannine Colette’s latest novel, A Really Bad Idea, was absolute perfection. Having just finished a few moments ago, my heart is full of love for her words and these characters.
Hands down one of the best friends-to-lovers romance books I’ve read in a long time.
Meadow + Christian have been best friends for a lifetime, and even though Meadow has harbored feelings for him, she’s always remained in the friend zone.
Christian is a heart surgeon with a big heart but is married to his career. Meadow is a dreamer and believer in happily ever afters.
“What did you wish for?” he asks.
“If I tell you, it won’t come true.”
With her birthday around the corner, Meadow knows her biological clock is ticking and wants so badly to have a baby. After a visit to a fertility doctor, she decides to take the bull by the horns and have a child on her own.
Welp . . . Christian comes to the rescue. He has an idea, a really bad idea . . . have a baby together he said. It’ll be perfect he said. We’ll go on three dates first he said. Sounds easy, right? Keeping her heart out of the equation is not as easy as Meadow thought it would be. Christian is impossible not to fall for.
“Don’t look down toward your fears or up into your own worst enemy . . . You get lost in your own thoughts. Stop listening to that little voice up there. All your answers, your dreams, your desires can be seen if you look straight.”
What follows is an emotional, heart-melting journey that had me on a reading binge. I was consumed with this story and characters who captured my heart and I felt as if they were part of my family.
Ms. Colette nailed this trope and I adored every moment with Christian + Meadow. With romance, heat, phenomenal chemistry, humor, and secondary characters I loved so much, A Really Bad Idea turned out to be the very best idea. Loved it!!
As of 5.30.19, A Really Bad Idea is available with Kindle Unlimited.
