We all know all of the sayings out there...and yes, they are Cliches but there is a reason why they keep being said...Because somehow there seems to be a universal sense of understanding of what they mean. Some may be cheesy or sound out of date...Hey, they have been around for generations after all... But most importantly, these Cliches ring true...(see how I did that, hahahahahaha)

Like "There is a Lid for Every Pot" or They seem "Well Suited". You know what these mean...
The first, that there is someone who is a perfect fit out there for everyone...and Well Suited means the couple works well together. Staci Hart took these ideas and ran with them. She created people who may have seemed at first glance would never seem like a match...but once we started to see how their thought processes synced, it became oh so clear...These two were definitely well suited.

All of Katherine's college friends and past roommates have found their person.
Katherine is the last of the four still living in the brownstone they once shared. She is fiercely independent and is a librarian at the NYC 5th Avenue library. She loves order, systems, facts and the satisfaction of having things under control. She is not an emotional person and likes her alone time.

All of this stems from her childhood experience with her parents. If you looked for an example for an over the top Hippie lifestyle, Katherine's parents would fit the bill. For as long as Katherine can remember, she never felt as if she belonged with them. As soon as she was old enough, she was more like the parent then the child. This skewed Katherine's idea of marriage and love. She didn't believe in any of it, at least not for her.

Theo is a man who always wanted to have a whole family of his own. His father left his mother causing her to work multiple jobs to take care of her twin boys. Teddy, Theo's brother was the daredevil while Theo took on the maintenance of the home. He learned how to cook and help look out for all the shenanigans Teddy got into. As they grew into men, their mother became ill. The brothers were very protective of her and when Teddy's writing career took off, the family decided to present a different picture of their lives. They didn't want their mother's privacy invaded. Teddy became the focus on social media, Theo became the manager and controlled all of the events. With the writing a success, these men were able to make the mother's life easier and Theo made sure everything fell into place for all of them.

When Teddy fell hard for Amelia, Katherine's best friend and roommate, a group gathering took place. All of the roommates and their guys went Swing dancing. From the first contact, electricity was in the air. Katherine sensed something very different about Theo. As someone who can seem blunt and direct, she did not hesitate and shared her theory of the chemicals humans share when attracted to one another...Perking up to how Katherine was feeling in his arms while he swung her around, Theo agreed with Katherine's observations. Most importantly, to Theo, she was Kate... His Kate.

They share a night of amazing passion. Intense, different from anything Kate has ever experienced and for Theo, this was something special. It was so special he wanted to pursue Kate. He wanted a chance with her. Katherine was having none of it. For five weeks, she left his texts unanswered, his calls going to voice mail.

Until she found herself holding a plastic stick showing a plus sign. With determination, Kate worked out the numbers, figured out she could do this on her own. There was comfort with a plan. She knew she needed to share the news with Theo, however. Whatever his reaction, she knew her plan and was settled with it.

When Kate approaches Theo and tells him the news, Theo is all in. He has always wanted the opportunity to be a dad like he never had. He also listened to Kate and how she was not interested in
any relationship, any romance or anything which would be a path with this news. Theo took everything in and made his decision; he would play a waiting game. He would be there for Kate anyway she needed. He would not push or scare her. He would follow her lead with a plan of his own...

For Theo knew, Kate was meant to be his...

I loved this book HARDCORE. I loved everything about it. I was there for Kate and understood all of her concerns, her fears, and new feelings. She was everything and her arc was a journey of discovery with all of the new rushes of love for a child and man but also with the setbacks real life can have.

And Please May I Have a Theo for Me...This man... so good, so caring and understanding of what worked for Kate. He was real which means he was perfect in that imperfect way a human can be. His love for Kate, his mother, and brother was a thing of beauty.

I could go on and on about this book, There wasn't a missed step. We go through the pregnancy, the way their relationship develops.
Those who have had a baby will relate to all of the changes your body goes through, how even scents can throw you off, and how there is such a thing called pregnancy brain. It was as if I was pregnant again.

After finishing this book, I searched to see what else I had read of Staci Hart. I was stunned that I had only read the books from this series. Staci Hart has taken me on a fantastic journey with these amazing women and the men who fall for them. I could not have been happier and will be recommending them and her to everyone.

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life: a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom to three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, even though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey, and her favorite word starts with f, ends with k.


From roots in Houston, to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north in Denver, until they grew a wild hair and moved to Holland. It’s the perfect place to overdose on cheese and ride bicycles, especially along the canals, and especially in summertime. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, gaming, or designing graphics.
