Many thanks to publisher Bookouture for my spot on this Blog Tour.
Woah!! 😂 This was one humorous book which kept me laughing at the antics of a married couple with kids. From snogging and shagging in their 20s, it was fun to read about their jiggling and sagging body parts and life post marriage and children.
My first book by author Kristen Bailey, I never would have guessed what came in their mail. And that started the rigmarole of humorous capers and dialogues that were scattered liberally in the book. Their adulting had me in splits. I loved Meg, her moments of vulnerability and doubt touched my heart. Who amongst us has not had them?
The writing was fun and zingy, even with British terms, it was easy to understand down the pages. The depiction of married life was quite enlightening. The author kept the ball rolling in a realistic manner from beginning to end with lots of funny moments.
Even in moments of stress and fun, the love between Meg and Danny came out well. That made this book a love story too. Marriage made love jaded with its responsibilities, but the couple had me cheering them on. The other characters like brother Stu, though maddening at times, were precocious and added to the entertainment.
Lots of innuendo along with humor, this book was perfect in between intense thrillers.
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

It’s normal for your washing machine to get more action than you, right?
I wake up, bleary-eyed.
It’s been two years, six months and three hours since I last shaved my legs, and the llama-patterned knickers I’m wearing have seen better days.
We have seven minutes before the kids wake up, and my husband shuffles closer. ‘Ouch,’ he says, a piece of Lego sticking into his back.
Then, a light comes on in the landing. Small footsteps creep down the stairs. A little voice screams, ‘IS SOMEONE COMING TO MAKE BREAKFAST?!’
All hopes of having some ‘alone time’ is replaced with wondering if we’ve run out of Cheerios, thinking about the overflowing laundry, and remembering that I forgot to take out the recycling. Again.
Just a typical Monday morning for the Morton family…
Except today, when I go downstairs in my dressing gown, I find something. Something belonging to my husband. Something that definitely wasn’t mentioned in the wedding vows. And it’s either going to make us… or break us.
