I love sex. I love the power, the intimacy, the euphoria it brings. Too bad I’m not having any . . . You’d think as New Orleans’ most renowned sex therapist that I’d be swimming in single men. In a way, I am . . . except for the fact that one is in diapers and the other two are drowning in preteen hormones. As a single mother of three, my days are devoted to my clients and my kids, and my nights are spent with Fabio, my trusty vibrator. When my world begins to unravel, I have no choice but to move back home. And when my high school sweetheart comes waltzing back into my life, comedy and chaos ensue.
What can I say? I never said I could pick ’em, but you can bet your ass I know how to fix ’em.
As soon as the ink dried on my divorce papers, I made myself a solemn vow: I was done with relationships. Moving home to take over my father’s firm was the plan, until Spencer decided to return, along with three souvenirs from the life she’s lived without me.
I’ve been in love with the girl next door for nearly all of my life; the rest was spent trying to forget her. I’d give almost anything for a second chance with her, but I have no time for distractions—especially the kind that involve diapers, bottles, and eighteen-year commitments.
The problem is, she’s already got me by the balls . . . and I’m beginning to feel the noose tightening around my heart.

What a great, funny, lighthearted read. I highly recommend you to grab this book, kick your feet up with a glass of wine and enjoy!
Spencer, who has 3 kids by 2 different baby daddy’s has come to find herself moving back home with her mom after she loses her job. There is much background given on the kids and their dads and it’s captivating. She feels like she is in over her head with life and struggling to get a grasp on things. Little does she know that her high school sweetheart and first love has also moved back home with his mother…who happens to live next door.
Cooper and Spencer…back together again but the only difference now is she has kids…again from 2 different men. Cooper feels gutted by this…he see’s her being a mom to these boys and it pains him to think that those kids could have been his. That they would be sharing that experience together. He also makes it painfully clear that he does not want kids and doesnt even really like kids. After Spencer moved away and moved on with her life, he sort of gave up on that dream…
But wouldn’t you know it, after Cooper starts spending time with Spencer and her boys, they start to grow on him…alot. He is not only rekindling his relationship with Spencer but becoming a “father figure” to her boys. He starts to get especially attached to the youngest, Kyle. Oh my god…there is a scene where he has to change his diaper…I laughed out loud for at least 5 minutes and actually re-read the scene over and over…then screenshot it and sent parts to my mommy friends. It was classic and one of the funniest scenes I have read in a long, long, time. The stuff that comes out of this kids mouth is just as humorous. The relationship that is blooming between these two is not only hilarious but heartwarming.
Sneakily, the author has to burst this bubble of bliss and laughs by bringing back this young childs father into the picture and stirs up trouble with this happy lot.
It was a great time to read these two characters build back up there lost relationship and to see how the kids fit into it. There was so much humor and laughs and a few hot steamy scenes, angst, drama and even more laughs. I was sad to get to the last page of this book!! Look forward to more from this author!!
