Bianca Ferrari, former supermodel turned high-flying businesswoman, almost has it all. Brains, beauty and a successful modelling agency, Bianca has built life and career from the ground up after emancipating herself from her parents. When she discovers that she’s pregnant, Bianca has no inclination to contact the father, with whom she’s only shared a handful of nights. By his own admission, Trapper can only maintain a relationship for seventy-two hours and Bianca has no desire to test that limit.

What Bianca didn’t expect was the strength of Trapper’s responsibility when he surprised her with a trip to New York and discovered she was pregnant with his child. Her high blood pressure and inability to keep any food down works against her and before she knows it, Bianca is on a plane out to live with Trapper and be surrounded by his family for the foreseeable future. Bianca slowly comes to realise that Trapper might be just the thing that’s been missing in her life …

When I needed it, this was light and funny and an all-round fluffy read. Bianca and Trapper’s interactions were, for the most part, funny though predictable. Bianca could be a diva at times but probably no more than any other heavily pregnant woman unexpectedly uprooted and plonked in unfamiliar semi-hostile (Bianca has a somewhat negative history with the Kincaids) surroundings. Trapper’s interactions with his siblings were funny but I unfortunately have little desire to discover any of their books. I enjoyed this ‘in the moment’, but this isn’t one I’d come back to.
