Meg Michaels, a bookstore owner, has already walked away from two cheating exes. She’s learned her lesson and has her mind set on success—until she gets knocked up. Embarrassed and unwilling to discuss her situation with friends and family, she wears layers to hide the pregnancy.
When Meg gets sick at a party, she’s mortified. Even worse, Theo Taylor, the guest of honor, discovers her secret. Theo, an Army medic wounded in the war, agrees not to reveal her condition, and the two forge a bond of friendship that blossoms into love.
Theo is soon filling all of Meg’s late-night cravings—and not just the pregnancy-induced ones. But can their love overcome all the obstacles that stand between them and creating a happy family?

4 Awesome Stars
I was given this book for an honest review for Through the Booking Glass.
I liked this book for the most part! It had a little bit of everything in it: love, angst, sadness, humor, exes, breakups, steam, hot guys, disability, you name it this book has it!
It starts off with Meg, who after a broken engagement, has a weak moment of sex with an ex! This moment lands herself preggo! Embarrassed & not knowing what to do or think, she hides it from her family until she finds herself really sick & has no choice but to tell them!
Theo is a disabled veteran with a missing leg who just so happens to be at the party when things so haywire! There's an instant connection but both have their own issues to work through! Theo's military trauma has really done a work on him & Meg's pregnancy is messing with her head!
Take the journey with these two & see where fate takes them! What will happen when the baby's bio dad comes back into the picture! Meg kind of annoyed me with her indecisiveness! I really could have strangled her a few times but she's under a lot of stress so I over looked her ways! I would've also loved an epilogue to tie things up!
Good book overall!
When she's not reading or writing, she spends her time watching extreme survival shows and taking long walks after nightfall. She has an unnatural love of high places, but still regrets the time she skydived solo. She believes some things are better left to the imagination. She resides in Austin with her family and a pack of wild dogs.
