Not According to Plan by A.M. Madden – Review and Giveaway

Welcome to the Not According to Plan blog tour
hosted by RockStar Book Tours!


What I Loved:

I love this twist on a romance storyline! A one-night-stand turned into a pregnancy and love story was adorable, and I loved it! One other thing I just adored about this book was the cover! I just think it’s utterly fabulous and I was drawn to the book from that alone!

How I Felt:

The characters were so lovable in this story. Jade, our female lead, has no interest in love. She is focused on her career. When life throws her curve-balls though, we find how adaptable to change she can be. I liked her strength and determination in all things life gave her. Max is also not looking for love, and yet love seems to find him. He’s a wonderful love interest, and I loved his strength of character. He was willing to commit to the situation and I appreciated that so much. Together, Jade and Max make a fabulous pair and they were so fun to read about.

The story shows its humorous side from the very first scene. I found myself laughing out loud at Jade’s conversation with her friend. This conversation leads to a night of karaoke and a one-night stand. Except that one-night stand turns into a pregnancy…whoops! Now Jade has to figure out what she’s going to do. It’s a lot of choices that she never thought she’d be making.

Overall, I really enjoyed Not According to Plan. I loved how the story was woven with humor and endearing moments. The characters were fun, and the story was well-written.

To Read or Not To Read:

I would recommend Not According to Plan to romance readers that enjoy the lighter side of romance. There is a lot of humor, mishaps, and a sweet love story for your enjoyment!

For one night of my life, I dared to do something reckless.
My birthday. A bar. Karaoke. And a man so hot he could melt the sun.
Sparks flew. Lust took over.

For one night of my life, I felt alive.

Then I was back to my “boring” life. Career-driven. Goal-oriented. Always planning ahead.

But nothing could have prepared me for the positive pregnancy test. We weren’t that reckless.

There goes my “boring” life. And what happens when I tell the father?
