I enjoyed it. I did. I love Amy Daws’s writing. She is one of the few rom-com authors I even read anymore. I will say, though, that out of the three standalones in this world, it was my least favorite (maybe because I don’t love the surprise pregnancy trope).
Josh was a good character – emotionally closed off, refusing to care or love. It is clear this will be the crux of the conflict very early on. I will say the build up to the conflict, which was most of the book, was resolved pretty quickly. I did, overall, love his character. He exemplifies the romanticized notion that when you meet the one, you can’t help but fall. And he truly resists with every single thing that he has; however, the reader sees the writing on the wall which makes him sympathetic.
Lynsey is a bit crazy and clumsy. Her antics are similar to that of the previous heroine in Wait with Me, which I expected. I did like her character, particularly that she struggled with idea of what she could live with and without in a marriage.
This story is a laugh out loud, crazy. It is maybe one of Amy’s hottest books she has written. I truly loved e sweet and intimate moments between Josh and Lynsey. The pacing was a bit off for me. The quick resolution as mentioned above. Some sub plots seemed unresolved, and there were some social commentary that didn’t seem integral to the plot. What I loved, totally, was the whole cast of secondary characters. The humor and love, the cameos all add to the book.
I wholeheartedly love Amy’s writing and the world she builds. I find her stories to be funny and romantic and charming . While One Moment Please wasn’t my favorite, it still has all of this elements I loved about her writing.
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. Dick 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 Dr. Dick’s house like a thief in the night, winds up as his patient in the ER after her Tinder date from hell.
Dr. Dick 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 that the surprise baby…is his.
