OMG Baby by Emma Garcia

This ISN'T a book about babies. It's not about sleepless nights, nappies or nurseries.
It IS about two people, one unexpected pregnancy and a question . . . Viv and Max were best friends for years, then they were lovers and then it all went wrong. Now finally they are to be reunited. Viv feels sick. Not just with nerves at seeing Max again, but because there's a small chance she might . . . quite possibly . . . most definitely . . . be pregnant. It's thrilling. But also terrifying. Most of the time they can hardly look after themselves, let alone a baby. And then Viv's estranged mother reappears on the scene and they all end up sharing a bedsit . . . and hell breaks loose.

I love reading sequels because it is great to see what the characters we already know and love are upto next and so this was why I was looking forward to reading OMG Baby which follows Viv from Never Google Heartbreak.

Viv and Max are now reunited but they have some unexpected news…… Viv is pregnant ! With both of them not in a job where they have a regular wage they begin to worry how on earth they are going to cope, as if the worry of bringing a child into the world isn’t enough then through Viv’s unreliable and useless mother into the mix and things are really starting to get too much. Will Viv and Max’s relationship be able to stand the test of time?

If you liked Never Google Heartbreak then you will love this one. The same down to earth humour is back in this book which makes this an entertaining read. Although it is a light plot the storyline does contain some more emotional parts to it from miscarriage to fertility and financial pressure and family problems so there is a deeper side to the humorous storyline.

I love Viv she is such a witty and fun character. In some ways she is a very strong woman but she is equally just as ditsy! I did find myself wanting to bang her head against a brick wall when it came to her mother Rainey that woman is just unbelievable.

I fully expect there to be another book for Viv as although we wasn’t left on a cliff hanger there is still more that can be done with her character and some lose ends that have been left so I am putting my bets on another release next year!

I do think it is best for you to read Never Google Heartbreak before you read this one, I think you would still enjoy the book and understand it without but it is nice to have the background on the characters so you have a familiar feel when reading this one. So treat yourself and add both of these books to your To Be Read Piles.
