Review: BABY & BUMP by Brooke Moss

At thirty years old, caterer Lexie Baump has a lot on her plate. With a business to run, she doesn’t have time for any added distractions. But one momentary indiscretion adds a little hiccup to Lexie’s plans. She’s pregnant. With no relationship prospects.

But if Lexie thought fighting morning sickness while running a catering business was hard, enter Dr. Fletcher Haybee. Their connection is instant, and their love of vintage rock tee shirts and Elvis music is enough to bond them for life. There are just two minor problems.

One: he’s dating her oversexed best friend. Two: he’s also her obstetrician.

With events to cater, awkward OB appointments to endure, and her ever-growing baby bump making it impossible to close her jeans, Lexie has to find a way to curb her undeniable attraction toward Fletcher and focus on her new role as a working mother. But it certainly isn’t easy when its clear Fletcher himself feels the same magnetic pull toward Lexie.

Can Lexie leave the gorgeous Fletcher for her best friend to chew up and spit out, or will she cave to her feelings and find love in the stirrups? Life is about to get messy, and we're not just talking about crumbs in the car seat.


3.5 Feel Good Stars!

Baby & Bump was very entertaining and also different than the usual quick read. One reason being the main character is pregnant, I mean how often do the heroines find out they are pregnant on the very first page? Not many that I know of! Then Lexie has short, red hair. Yes, I am aware I am probably the only person that cares about that but it’s just so refreshing that she didn’t have those long, flowing, gorgeous locks! Those were left for her friend, Marisol and her cousin, Candace. 

Lexie Baump was such an endearing character. The independent and strong mother-to-be just so happens to have a crush on her doctor. Yikes! I knew right away that couldn’t be good, especially when flirty Marisol goes to an appointment with Lexie.

Fletcher, “Dr. Baby”, was a very sweet man. I enjoyed his character and the fact that he was a single father. Personally, I would have like to have gotten to know him a little better to be able to really fall in love with him. He was still very enjoyable to read about and there was good chemistry between him and Lexie.

Baby & Bump also has a great cast of supporting characters, Lexie’s family is a hoot, they all brought great comic relief to the story as Lexie’s pregnancy progressed and her feelings for Fletcher got stronger.  Plus Fletcher has the sweetest daughter!

Overall, Baby & Bump was cute. It made me smile and laugh, made me a little mad and a little sad at times, and kept me guessing for how things were going to go. It’s paced well; we see a great progression of Lexie’s pregnancy to where nothing feels too rushed or too slow. It’s the perfect kind of quick read!
