BABY PROOF by Emily Giffin
This is the first book of Emily's I've read and when I read an excerpt online, I thought it sounded pretty good and somehow with a little luck I ended up with an ARC, which didn't disappoint.
BABY PROOF is about Claudia (and Ben). They meet on a blind date and things are great from the start. They both don't want children, something that Claudia's been firm on since she was a teenager (there's a few mentions of her high school boyfriend asking her about her future at prom and she says no kids...) But when a few years go by and a friend of their's who had the same plan, suddenly ends up with a baby of her own, well now Ben's beginning to think adding a baby to their family might not be a bad idea either. Except Claudia's dead set on never having a baby, which ultimately causes her to leave Ben (don't worry I'm not spoiling anything, all this happens before the midway of the book! hehe)
I really enjoyed this one. Not your typical chick-lit (if that even exists anymore?) with real life characters. There's a good bond between Claudia and her family who fill out some of the supporting cast, along with her best friend Jess.
I do believe its out today!
