Good story, a lot of characters to keep straight, excellent narration, but way too much sexual detail. I love audio books, hate ear phones (they don’t seem to work with my ears) and it’s very distracting to hear graphic details when others are around. Please Jennifer! We have imaginations, we don’t need such explicitness.

An unexpected love story…

Jules Strauss is a Princeton senior with a full scholarship, acquaintances instead of friends, and a family she's ashamed to invite to Parents' Weekend. With the income she'll receive from donating her "pedigree" eggs, she believes she can save her father from addiction.

Annie Barrow married her high school sweetheart and became the mother to two boys. After years of staying at home and struggling to support four people on her husband's salary, she thinks she's found a way to recover a sense of purpose and bring in some extra cash.

India Bishop, thirty-eight (really forty-three), has changed everything about herself: her name, her face, her past. In New York City, she falls for a wealthy older man, Marcus Croft, and decides a baby will ensure a happy ending. When her attempts at pregnancy fail, she turns to technology, and Annie and Jules, to help make her dreams come true.

But each of their plans is thrown into disarray when Marcus' daughter Bettina, intent on protecting her father, becomes convinced that his new wife is not what she seems.…

With startling tenderness and laugh-out-loud humor, Jennifer Weiner once again takes readers into the heart of women's lives in an unforgettable, timely tale that interweaves themes of class and entitlement, surrogacy and donor ship, the rights of a parent and the measure of motherhood. ( )

I enjoy her books because they're easy on the brain, although I admit this story didn't head the way I expected. But pleasant. ( )

Though Ms. Weiner is an excellent writer, I got really tired of the re-occuring back stories and predictable plot. I found myself skimming a lot. The characters are well drawn yet their stories are what you expect to read, nothing original. Maybe that's what sells--conformity. I really enjoyed this writer's earliest books. ( )

This book makes you think about the consequences of the rights of different types of "parents". Initially hard to read with each chapter a different character giving their thoughts. Understood Annie, the surrogate mother and her life problems. Liked Jules, the egg donor, until she got involved with her female roommate. Bettina, the father's daughter, became like-able as the story progressed. The future mother, India, was hard to believe as real life. ( )
