Zane Jaffe has almost lost track of what conception cycle she’s in. (That’s a lie: this is cycle thirteen.) She’s fake-dating her pal Mildred to get her best friend off her back, but judging by how hot it was when they accidentally kissed, her feelings might be somewhat less platonic than she’d thought.
And she’s decided that healing the fractured local queer community can only be accomplished through a party. Or maybe it’s actually a wake. Whatever it is, it’ll take place at Club Fred’s, and there will be alcohol.
Trying to conceive is an unholy rollercoaster of emotions, and Mildred won’t let them kiss again until Zane figures out how she feels. Between the wake (exhausting as hell, and that’s just the fun stuff), the constant up-down cycle of trying to get pregnant, and saving the world in the meantime, Zane has no idea. Fall in love with Mildred isn’t on her list, but maybe it’s time to let go of that rigid future she’s been working toward, and instead embrace the accidents that can lead to something better.
Having been invested in this series since the beginning, I couldn’t wait to see how it was going to end. Especially after the suspense was ended in the last book in the series, I wanted to see how things would end up with everyone. Find out how they are all adjusting after finding out who the killer was.
Zane has been a favorite character of mine since the start – and the fact that this is her book? Made it all the better. I must admit though, since Zane was my favorite, I was a bit worried that her book wouldn’t live up to what I had hoped for her. Needless to say – I was blown away because it was written in a way that I couldn’t help but root for both Zane and Mildred. Zane wasn’t expecting to fall in love, but she did. And I loved how it scared her. Because it made the book more real.
Mildred’s character was one that tugged on my heartstrings. I wanted so much for her to smack Zane upside the head, but that isn’t her. She was tough, and you knew that, but she also showed her soft side.
Overall – I would say that if you have been invested in this series, then you should check this book out!
If you haven’t read the series – you should be able to read this book as a standalone, but I can’t guarantee it.
