I really think I need to give up reading books by this author. Or at least with the same main character. Hard to get into, didn't keep my attention. Not to mention, the main character was so obnoxiously self-centered and completely delusional I just wanted to throw the book out the window. Or set it on fire.

I am not even sure where to start in reviewing this book. To say it was bad would be inaccurate; however, painstakingly horrendous, might be more on target.I hate to sound cold and unwilling to try, but that would be wrong. I wanted to like this book; in fact I thought I would so I already own the sequel and am now debating what to do about that.However, on to this book. The main character Jane was a whiner, completely psychotic, and self-absorbed. No other character in the book is worth mention [...]

This story is snort-through-your-nose hilarious! Jane is most certainly a character of another color with her outrageous scheme to fake a nine-month pregnancy with reasons only she can justify and accept. As can be expected, her impulsive plan snowballs out of control and hilarity ensues as she stacks one jaw-dropping lie on top of the other.Though the ending disappointed me so much I actually reconsidered my intended five-star rating, I noticed from the synopsis of Crossing the Line – the nex [...]

I don't even know where to start with this review! This book was outrageous, the main character a complete crazy woman. Jane Taylor drove me NUTS at times with her crazy scheme and outlandish ideas, but somehow I couldn't seem to put the book down - I had to see how it ended. I sympathized with her at some points throughout, but still can't imagine anyone actually going through with this asinine plan of hers. I had checked this book and the sequel out from the library at the same time, and with [...]

I really wanted this book to be good, but I really just couldn't connect with the main character. I thought she was selfish and flat and weak, and to tell the truth, I am really sick of this type of female character in literature. Aside from that, the plot was just not interesting enough to keep me interested. This one is definately a "skip".

What a hysterical read! Seriously folks you will be laughing your ass off! Not one page was I not laughing! I love Lauren Baratz-Logsted's humor! I couldn't put it down bc it was so hysterical and I wanted to know what happens next, and what will happen next! Never in your wildest dreams could I pull off what the main character pulls off! I'm very much looking forward to reading more of Lauren's books.

I'm very glad this was a free book. It was not what I expected at all (with the pregnancy really being a farce) and all the typos throughout the book were such a huge distraction. The main character just annoyed me with how self-centered she was. I was glad to finish it, but was really disappointed in the open ending as well. At least finish your book before putting it out - people like closure.

The main character fakes a pregnancy, and I found myself thinking, "What in the bloody hell are you doing!?". Despite that, there are some funnier parts, and it wasn't a terrible read. I just didn't love it, but I loved it enough to get the sequel

I finally gave up trying to read this about 3/4 through. Life's too short to spend trying to get through a book that just isn't any good. The protagonist was awful and there were countless spelling mistakes throughout. What could have been a great story just wasn't, unfortunately.

I've never heard or hated a self indulgent whiner as a main character before as much as this one. Interesting thought for a book, but really! I hate how the book ends-possibly the worst ending ever! Made me hate her that much more!

I guess the story was okay, but the main character was completely self-absorbed without a thought or care about how her behavior would impact anyone else. I wouldn't have wanted to marry her either.

This is one of the few red dress ink books I didn't like! I don't usually give up on books and had to will myself to finsh this. I did skip a couple pages here and there. Just not a good book

J'ai retrouvé ce roman de chick-lit acheté il y a bien longtemps et je me suis dit que ce serait un bon choix pour attaquer l'été avec un titre "détente". Mauvaise pioche, je me suis clairement ennuyée à la lecture de cette histoire tirée par les cheveux qui tire en longueur. J'ai d'ailleurs mis plus d'un mois à le terminer car je n'avais pas spécialement la motivation d'avancer dans l'intrigue. Je suis quand même allée au bout poussée par la curiosité de savoir comment cela se ter [...]

Jane Taylor is pregnant. Or at least she thinks she is. A couple of days late, she can't help but share the great news- with her best friend David, with random strangers, and with her unable-to-commit boyfriend, Trevor. Suddenly obsessed with pregnancy, Jane gets a glimpse into how the other half lives. Men hold open doors for pregnant women, they have a certain glow, and she can't wait to be a visible part of that community. When Jane finds out a couple of weeks later that she is most certainly [...]

I have only DNF'ed two books in my life; one is documented here, the other is documented in my head as the author is a super famous and beloved by millions. This came close to being my third DNF, but I endeavor to finish what I start these days, so I kept reading.The author is talented and knows how to spin a tale. She even knows how to keep you guessing and stay reading even when you don't want to. It's her main character, Jane Taylor, that is the problem. She is self-absorbed, a narcissist, an [...]

En lisant le résumé sur , j'ai été immédiatement attirée par le parti pris casse-gueule de l'histoire : comment diable l'auteur pourrait-elle rendre un sommet de malhonnêteté, à savoir feindre une grossesse pour se faire épouser, à peu prés compréhensible et attachant ?Eh bien, il se trouve que c'est totalement barré et très réussi. Jane est un super personnage, arrogante, cynique, égoïste jusqu'au bout des ongles (désolée, j'ai un truc avec les pestes), avec juste ce qu'il [...]

Jane Taylor is single, 29, working as an editor for Churchill & Stewart publishers in the UK. She and Trevor have been living together for some time and enjoying great sex. When her regular cycle is a couple of weeks late, she's convinced she's pregnant and is so thrilled she picks up a pregnancy test. When it shows she isn't pregnant, she buys another one and draws a thin pink line on the test window with a magic marker. After telling everyone she is pregnant, she finds she truly isn't. So, [...]

This is a smart, unusual plot. There are some typos in the middle (almost like lazy editing). The story is funny and the scene where Jane and her mother are at lunch discussing baby names is laugh out loud funny and I had tears running down my face when reading it. There are many funny scenes in this unique pregos story. If you have ever been pregnant you will relate to all the the things in What To Expect When You're Expecting that scare you to death in a very informative way. I have been marri [...]

I'm sorry, but I can't even give this book one star. Jane Taylor is a self-centered, whiny bitch. Not to mention delusional and sick. And the book doesn't even really address this. She is an almost-thirty, single woman who wants to be pregnant. Does she go about it in the conventional way? No. She fakes it. Amazing to think that a thirty-year-old woman would do this and think that it's okay. Not only was this the worst book I have ever read, but I actually got it on my Kindle, and there were ton [...]

Like many aspiring and actual parents, Jane discovers that there are some perks to pregnancy. And once she can rule out all the concerns and difficulties of really being pregnant, it's even better. The author has created a character many can identify with: a woman who's doing okay professionally, but whose personal life leaves a great deal to be desired. What Jane learns during the next nine months, like Will Lightman in Nick Hornby's About A Boy, is that parenthood changes you, even when you're [...]

I read this book as part of a reading challenge. This book was in the category of 'a book with a color in the title'.Well, the fact that this book took forever to finish is an indication of what I thought about it. It wasn't that it was horrible, I did finish it, but I just wasn't interested. The story itself was too far fetched, and made me feel a bit stupid. Am I supposed to believe that the main character, who's name actually escapes me right now, is as smart and she is, but is stupid enough [...]

The opening line promised a great, snarky, cynical chick lit, full if laughter and wit But then, well, it was like being caught in a tornado with random bits of humor, senselessness, infuriating characters, unsubstantiated plot lines, and treachery. Since I am no Dorothy, I did not even come out well in the end. After all of the main characters delusions and lies, she comes across a convenient package on the doorstep, and that fool ex boyfriend of hers is so taken he will probably go along with [...]

I had a hard time relating to this book - the main character believes she is pregnant and then finds out that she is not - but so enjoyed the positive attention that she moves forward pretending she is pregnant - creating awkward situations and in the process finding what is important to herself. The underlying premise was just so improbable to me that I had trouble enjoying the book - there is some decent character development and story line though - so it's not a complete waste of timetely a f [...]

Oh, please! I willing to stretch my imagination and believe a lot of things for the sake of a story, but I can't stretch this far. Girl pretends to be pregnant, drawing a thin, pink line on a test stick (hence the title). She buys maternity clothes, fakes a belly, the whole nine yards. Just as she's about to confess (you can't fake a birth, you know), she finds a baby in the street. Ridiculous! Never happened.

What a fun read! It takes a mildly sick mind to come up with the premise of this novel (which is why it's right up my alley): a woman decides she's sick of the "preferential" treatment pregnant women get so she decides to fake a pregnancy. It's all fine and dandy at first--the first trimester is generally when you can't even tell a woman's pregnant--but things get out of hand when she decides to carry the fake pregnancy to term. Hilarity ensues!

38% in and I'm officially done with this book. I can tolerate a lot of crap in books, but I can tolerate this no more. Faking a pregnancy, and a character faking a pregnancy and then considering making MONEY off it, is certainly not funny and not fodder for an author to write a "funny" novel about. Those who think it is funny obviously have never lost a pregnancy or a child before. Sorry, I can't finish this one, and certainly can't give it any higher of a rating than the one star.

Drivel. A self absorbed, stupid woman pretends to be pregnant to get her boy friend to marry her. Then, because that's not stupid enough, he leaves but she keeps it up because she likes the attention. This was seriously an insult to books. Spoiler alert:Think if the dumbest possible ending ever. Yep, that's how it ends. THEN there's a book two. Jesus, prolonging this horror should be illegal.

It was December and I really needed a book that wasn't about money, self improvement, how to publish a book or serious/going to make me think. This book did the trick. The main character does ghastly things that are over the top. The book has a british feel so it even takes you out of the U.S if that is what you're looking for. This book isn't going to change your life. It isn't boring but it is mindless and some parts are humorous.
