Publisher's Summary

Johari

When I applied to medical school, I never thought I'd be paying the bill by becoming a surrogate. I suppose a girl has to do what she has to do in the end, so I decided to intercept Uncle Sam before he could come for me. Funny enough, it's surprisingly easy to find willing participants. I answered an ad, and the guy showed up at the coffeehouse we agreed to meet at. He showed up frickin'...beautiful and with brown eyes that tightened my tummy in ways they probably shouldn't have. He looks familiar to me. Like I've seen him on the news or in the paper or something.

And the last thing I should be doing is falling for the guy whose baby I volunteered to carry.

Alexander

She's obviously here for someone else, agreed to meet someone else. About a baby? She wants to carry...my baby? Oddly, before the moment I met this woman, the thought had never really crossed my mind. I suppose the idea never had time to form considering I've just been cleared of cancer. I get the news right before I meet her. I meet her, and everything changes. I want a baby. I want another chance to lead a fulfilling life, and I want...her.

But how can I have them both?

Contains mature themes.

Over the top soap opera drama for no reason

First...Im noticing a trend of giving the sample of the better or more known narrator and then they arent really involved. Teddy Hamilton narrates very very little of this. I have a love/hate thing for Ms Brehon. Her female voice is mostly awesome...even if sometimes over the top whisper dramatical...but her male voices are just bad. Hard to take seriously.

This overall story is pretty good actually. I think it might even read better than listen. I did struggle with this though. Jo is almost a whole doctor...and a black woman from a somewhat "hood". Her level of naive/stupid is hard to stomach. The things she does...the information she leaves out/lies about..as a medical professional..Cmon now..ForREAL? There are so many misunderstandings, bad decisions and angst that would be ok if they were fresh out of high school but for these 2 at this point in their lives is ridiculous. I do believe the narration makes these things seem worse than they may come across in actual print. Also the way all the breakups/makeups are so vaguely handled is kinda weird given there is always such a buildup.
So I dont know. Im irritated but I finished it . It could of been really great.

This was sad

Some parts of the recording were off almost like when theirs a spelling error in a book you’re reading that bothered me and the story was sad and flat. I wouldn’t recommend it.

Kept me wanting more

The man narrator was great very versatile with the voices but the female narrator wasn't very good with male voices. I love audiobooks with both male and female narrators it makes the storyline flow better.

What a rollercoaster

This audible was good and their ups and down was real and raw but at the end you can feel they really love each and how they was so scared to fall in love with each and then you have jealously people around telling them you can not be together but at the end they overlook everyone who didnt want them together.
