R E V I E W ➠ One Moment Please by Amy Daws
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 that she’s pregnant.
What really throws him for a loop…is that the surprise baby…is his.
RELEASE DATE: April 9, 2020
“I wish I could be charming. Maybe then Dr. Dick and I would’ve ended up in the sack together instead of him threatening to call for a psych evaluation.”-Lynsey
Not my first read by the author, I just adore and love Amy…from her IG story posts to her books, always fun. This one, little different but in the best way. I fell in love from the first pages. Always something about a enemy-to when done right that get’s em going!
Little bitter sweet about this book, I started writing this review when i was about half way through the book. The beginning really captivated me, and i loved the banter and jumping right into enemy-to. A good laugh always with Amy’s books. This one actually had me going for it to be a little more serious, i wont lie there were moments of ‘Lynsey being immature’ but it wasn’t enough to make me stop reading. I do have to get this off my chest, i kind of was OKAY with Dean the male friend but by mid way, I really did not like him…reason: he is one way with the heroine and another with the hero, I just couldn’t enjoy him. Alright aside from that, the hero is PARTICULAR (dry humor – and btw this is in a good way, sexy broody and dry humor worked for him!). A doctor, early 30s , smart, sexy and knows his way with words. A particular humor that seems to clash with Lynsey but yet bond them together. I will also say that I was kind of missing something; maybe more of Lynsey wanting to understand why he is the way he is. They banter a lot but I was looking for that connection a little more. I’ll be back with more once I’ve finished the other half of this.
2nd 50% of the book I was hoping i didn’t have to jump into these words and explanation, but i want anyone that reads my review to understand why. Linsey to me tittered on the line of being an adult and being an adult but immature. There were instances where i found her funny and it was appropriate but then scenarios where it was really immature of what she had said or done and it slightly turned me off more each time. Now granted it was maybe meant to be more light and fun but i was expecting a little something else, so that’s on me and my feelings on the heroine’s tone. Confirmation on not liking Dean one bit – CONFIRMED.. twice. don’t like him anymore, his time and actions, it’s not funny anymore and just No Dean please! *cringe* I want to address the flow and transitions because at times i was hot and cold, for example: one chapter ending in something rather serious between hero and heroine, then beginning of next chapter they are together just like normal (another scenario), i guess I’m just trying to say that i got emotional in the ending and the next start we are back to just normal, so you can see why that’s got me got and cold.
All in all if you’re still here after me writing a whole novella about this review, I want to say that I do love Amy’s books, they really are fun and light…the issues I had with it as always are my opinion and feelings towards reading this sweet story. I would still very much recommend this book and series, what I did love was the hero and heroine together throughout all this, aside form everything they really seemed to be two pees in a pot, polar opposite on the outlook of life but meshed really well together. The epilogue, okay that had me almost balling my eyes out it was sweet!
