Publisher's Summary

An ambitious career woman signs up for a co-parenting website only to find a match she never expected, in this unflinchingly funny and honest novel from the author of Last Tang Standing.

Management consultant Lucie Yi is done waiting for Mr. Right. After a harrowing breakup foiled her plans for children—and drove her to a meltdown in a Tribeca baby store—she’s ready to take matters into her own hands. She signs up for an elective co-parenting website to find a suitable partner with whom to procreate—as platonic as family planning can be.

Collin Read checks all of Lucie’s boxes; he shares a similar cultural background, he’s honest, and most important, he’s ready to become a father. When they match, it doesn’t take long for Lucie to take a leap of faith for her future. So what if her conservative family might not approve? When Lucie becomes pregnant, the pair return to Singapore and, sure enough, her parents refuse to look on the bright side. Even more complicated, Lucie’s ex-fiancé reappears, sparking unresolved feelings and compounding work pressures and the baffling ways her body is changing. Suddenly her straightforward arrangement is falling apart before her very eyes, and Lucie will have to decide how to juggle the demands of the people she loves while pursuing the life she really wants.

VERY slow start!

I repeated the first 2 chapters like 4 times now and I’m still not captivated. Don’t think I’m gonna finish the book

DNF

I feel like this book is slow to the point, I didn't finish, The narrator is great and the story was compelling, but I got 5 hours in and it still wasn't picking up. I also felt like both of them were really reactive over small things. Maybe this was to underline their traumas?

Otherwise, I typically like this author, I'll try to catch the next book.

Not for me

I expected something different. I didn't enjoy this story which is sad cause I truly enjoyed the authors last book.
