Two practical strangers. One fateful night. Two pink lines.
College senior and obsessive romantic Kayla Cummings' dreams of a storybook life are spun off course by an unplanned pregnancy after a one-night stand with her secret crush. Devastated, Kayla turns to her roommates and best friends for advice. No matter what she decides, no matter how deeply embarrassed, she has to tell the father.
Ben Strickland’s future is written in stone—as long as he gets a decent score on the Law School Admission Test. Feeling pressure from all sides, Ben struggles to juggle his upcoming finals, another shot at the LSAT, and his needy girlfriend Darcy. When the girl he spent a memorable night with weeks ago shows up at his doorstep pregnant, his already chaotic life spins out of control.
With the clock ticking, decisions to make, and a boatload of people to disappoint, Ben and Kayla embark on a journey neither anticipated—a journey where falling in love might be the biggest surprise of all. But when old hurts and buried secrets pose a greater threat to their future than impending parenthood, will Ben and Kayla go their separate ways or forge a new path to happy ever after?

This was a journey of how two college students let down their guard for one night, and their lives are altered for good. This is their journey and how it affects them and those they love.
Kayla didn't think that one night with her crush was going to end up with her pregnant and facing some hard decisions. Ben who is struggling in school, with his on and off girlfriend, and his relationship with his family - he certainly knows that when he tells them he got another girl pregnant that will only complicate everything.
Their journey was not an easy one. They had to face the facts, put away their selfish desires, and eventually become a team against the world. They had to make some tough, life altering decisions and one of the biggest was telling their families. The shame and the guilt I knew were overwhelming each of them, but neither ran away, together they faced this. I am pleased that this was a story where the couple takes on the responsibility together, not blaming one or the other, but facing the truth that each were a guilty party.
I liked this story. I liked who Kayla and Ben become by the end. Especially as they reach for a greater purpose and put away their own selfishness for the sake of their child. This story does bring us to a satisfying and sigh worthy conclusion and I was glad to go on this journey with them.
I received a copy of this novel from the author. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
