Publisher's Summary

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?

Friends With Benefits - Love This Book 5 Stars*

Meg Michaels is the owner of a bookstore, pregnant and has two exes that are not worth considering – but for the fact that she is pregnant by one of them. She hides her pregnancy for as long as she can.

At a welcome home party, put on by her best friend, she meets a former Army medic who discovers her secret. Theo (the medic) takes her on as a project. They become friends and before either of them know what they have become intimate – intimate friends.

They push each other away because of their perceived end real fears.

How will they contribute to one another in their journey? Or will they push themselves away from one another?

To me this was a very gentle plot and exploration of returning, injured veterans. Their pride versus the actual physical and mental needs they must let others to help them heal. The compassion without pity that those of us who know nothing about what they have been through. We must include them in order to hear their needs and do our best to help when asked, give time alone when asked, and understand and recognize the differences

Claire Ashby has written a wonderful book and while *I was given this book to listen to in exchange for my review in an unbiased manner. I can say with certainty that I will look for more written by this author and immediately add them to my Wish List.

Piper Brown is an excellent performer. I believe that I have listen to another one of her performances and she is better with each performance. Brown has a way of pulling the emotion out of your heart, feeling and identifying with this spectacularly written book.

Claire Ashby and Piper Brown are a match made in heaven – audio heaven, anyway!

Notes Mature themes, strong language and some descriptions of violence

Very Satisfying

What a beautiful story! This was so unexpected. I don’t even remember why I decided to listen to it in the first place. I must have seen it when I was looking at a random reviewer’s comments. Out of curiosity, I looked it up on GR, and the overwhelming positive comments made me curious. Then I was interested in learning how things unfolded with the h who was supposed to be hiding her pregnancy. That sparked my interest. And once I started listening, I couldn’t stop.

This wasn’t the usual billionaire meets young innocent/ambitious working girl. This was a war hero -- an amputee -- and a part owner of a bookstore – two regular people. But talk about issues. There were many unexpected turns and lots of surprises. Totally blew me away. I felt the biggest issue was coming to terms with yourself after your birth mother has rejected you. Learning to say: I’m okay. I love me. I deserve to be loved. As someone who also wanted to hear those words from my mother, you know I was in tears A LOT as I listened to this audiobook. I like how the author also explored who is your true parent – blood vs love as she put the spotlight on three fathers.

Interesting plot and the author immediately sparked our interest zooming in on both major characters. I love when we aren’t misled in the first few pages/minutes of listening, and we got a true glimpse of Theo and Meg from the get-go. Well-developed characters. Great ending with an obvious resolution.

Recommended for those who love m/f romance with some steam, some angst but no drama.
