What’s a little sex between friends?Sophie Fordham never thought much about motherhood until her body forced her to. With the onset of early menopause, she knows if she wants to have a baby, it’s now or never. So what’s a single, financially-strapped girl to do? Go with what you know, of course.Fox Monkhouse has been Sophie’s gorgeous best friend since preschool. This sun-kissed surfer boy has no shortage of ladies, but she’s hoping he’ll put that aside to help her out. As there’s never been anything romantic between the two, things get awkward when she asks him to put a bun in her oven—especially since it has to be done the old-fashioned, no-pants dance way.

When Fox agrees to do the deed, Sophie is ecstatic. But she soon realizes that this chance at a baby could cost her everything. Keeping sex and emotions separate is clearly not in her wheelhouse especially when her best friend is involved. If their relationship can’t evolve into something new, their unusual arrangement could destroy the friendship of a lifetime.

. Fox is the first in a new series from new to me author Lumetta. After making the rounds with a gorgeous cover, I was ready and invested in this book .As this book called to me.

However it wasn’t exactly I expected.  Sophia was dealt a devastating blow and honestly she was hot and cold about the whole issue  because who she was interacting with. Fox brought out her inner child. She was supposed to be the more adult in the picture.

As Fox was painted as the child that never grew up and  I expected the dialogue and  ideas to come out of his mouth to be a such. I didn’t expect him to drag down Sophia like he did. Yes they were childhood besties who   had their issues as being boy and girl best friends for so long and Fox being the man that he was.

Fox was an memorable character and so where the others. Sophia was the one who felt out of place acting the adult that she was at times. However she came through when it came to the hard stuff. She may of set things in move and we saw things from her perspective. Even so she didn’t have a perfect run.

Certain things made me uncomfortable, especially when the author was trying to be serious and I felt that that could be been handled given the enormously   of the situation. There two things that happened in this novel. One being totally  obvious and the reason for this novel in the first place. The other being  an moment that I didn’t see coming and do hope this isn’t the last of that character.

As whilst it was serious at certain moments  It was totally awkward otherwise like I expected and fun. Whilst it had it moments that I enjoyed and didn’t.  Fox was an entertaining  book despite Fox  and his  antics.

Curious to see how this light hearted series will continue as there lot been throw at readers and I wonder at one point was this only the beginning for these two considering how much did happen. Lummentra hasn’t won me over yet but I’m definitely intrigue
