Tensley has had a crush on her best friend’s cousin Clancy since they were kids, but he lives in another state and her cousin warned her away from him repeatedly. A one night stand ten years later, though, has consequences neither of them saw coming. Tensley is 21 and a junior in college; Clancy is a senior so around 22 years old. I was impressed by the maturity both showed about their situation. I also liked how supportive each set of their friends were, and especially how Clancy took the initiative to educate himself about everything Tensley would be going through.
However, the book was a bit uneventful. Outside the unplanned pregnancy between two people living 7 states apart, there isn’t any real drama. Tensley has a strained relationship with her mother, but the only interactions we see between them are pretty mild and don’t really explain that tension. And at the end, after the birth, Tensley mentions to Clancy some bullying issues she had been dealing with the entire pregnancy. Getting to experience them along with Tensley would have given this book so much more depth. Honestly, even though this was an interesting story and a decent read, Tensley is a bit boring and Clancy is a bit of a male Mary Sue. He doesn’t seem to have any character flaws at all.
Overall, this wasn’t a bad book. The main plot is the pregnancy and mostly how Clancy deals with his impending fatherhood, to the detriment of developing the other characters further. This book would probably be enjoyed more by someone closer to the age of Tensley and Clancy and can relate to them better.
