Emotional Roller Coaster
I'm only nine chapters into this book which makes it difficult to review. That being said, 'Nobody's Baby But Mine' is leading the reader into an emotional roller coaster. We've got temptation galore. We see everyday life issues front and center and how each character responds can change the course of their lives.
Mentioned early is a best friend's marriage falling apart due to cheating. I found it interesting how JT (main character/husband) responds to that news when Rachel (JT's wife) tells him about their friends problems. He immediately seems to blame his friend's wife for 'maybe' not meeting hubby's needs. Tsk, tsk. That made me cautious about JT.
Rachel, who desperately wants a baby, can't conceive. She and JT are very much in love... but remember what I said about 'Temptation'? Well, it rears it's ugly head. It's interesting how each respond. You've heard of those wandering eyes and roving hands.... well JT's eyes sure to wander when it comes to a co-worker who is not subtle in her desire to claim him.
Rachel, on the other hand, handles her temptation differently... An ex, who never has gotten over losing Rachel, seeks her out in a business deal. She makes it clear that she is married and knows it's best to keep her distance. Was she tempted? Yes. But she refuses to yield to temptation and does things to distance herself from her ex, including turning over her client's business to her boss.
I'm looking forward to seeing how this all comes together. Rachel seems to turn her back on temptation, JT does not. I'm wanting to see choices made and how those choices impact and affect others. There always is collateral damage. BTW, Rachel's ex seems genuinely to care about her. JT's co-worker is career driven and doesn't care who she uses to get to the top and seems to being eyeing him to give her a boost. Let's hope JT wises up before it's too late!
