It's Complicated (Her Billionaires #5) by Julia Kent

Her Billionaires #5

Laura is ready to pop the baby out. But she doesn't want to go to the hospital. Josie makes her go and calls the men. Alex sees Josie come in with two men and a very pregnant woman. Since he is a OB/GYN, he heads upstairs. He gets asked by the midwife to stand by because Laura may have problems. Josie sees him and is attracted. She does not know that Alex has been checking her out for some time. She is running a study for Alzheimer patients that his grandfather is part of.  He is right at Josie's side when she needs him. Since the birth is taking awhile, they start to get to know each other. Will they be a couple? Josie is kind of messed up and we find out why. Is Alex really Dr. Perfect?

Also what about Laura's plan to start an online dating site for threesomes? Who will run it? How is life going to be for Laura, mike and Dylan once the baby comes?

I loved this one. Josie deserves love and Dr. Perfect is the one for her, if she'd let him in!


From goodreads:
Hot make-out session? Check. With the dreamy obstetrician? Check. While her best friend is in labor? Um...

It's Complicated.

Josie Mendham never meant to have her own (radically different) set of gasps and moans a few doors down from where her best friend, Laura, was giving birth. And stealing away with the obstetrician who was consulting on Laura's case certainly wasn't part of any birth plan.

When Dr. Alex Derjian watched the foursome enter the labor ward he did a doubletake: two dads? That defied biology as he knew it. Even more intriguing was the woman with the birthing mother and the fathers: Josie, the nurse he'd been watching from afar for months. One elevator kiss led to an on-call room soiree and soon he was breaking every romantic rule in his playbook.

Finding his way into her pants wouldn't be hard.

But into her heart? That would be a challenge.

It's Complicated is the much-awaited novel that combines the stories of Laura, Mike, Dylan, Josie, and Madge from the Her Two Billionaires series with Darla, Trevor and Joe from the USA Today Bestseller Random Acts of Crazy, with Alex and Josie at the center of it all.

Romantic Comedy meets New Adult romance in this 130,000 word/450 page novel that asks whether people can get out of their own way and learn that love isn't easy...but it's always worth it.
 


Excerpt:

Chapter One

“Where are the balls?” Josie shouted as she and Laura entered Jeddy’s. The warlock waitress was missing, and the joint was empty, so it wasn’t hiding behind some crowd of rowdy college students.
As she craned her head around to see if it had been moved, she was disappointed to find no trace of the cardboard monstrosity anywhere.
“Gone,” Madge croaked, eyeing Laura’s enormous belly. “You got triplets in there?” she asked, poking her tummy with a stylus. Laura wore a lovely pink cotton tent that used more fabric than a king-size duvet. Josie felt sorry for her these days, with cankles and sciatica and a belly that stretched so far she could use it as a sail after the birth.
It had been Laura’s idea to come and eat lunch at Jeddy’s, and against Josie’s better judgment she’d said yes. The place held a few too many memories for her, but for Laura it was all about the food. And when a hungry, overdue pregnant woman suggests the place that serves her favorite comfort food, you don’t argue.
“No, but I’ll happily eat for three,” Laura answered, making Madge’s face crack into a grin. No, really—it cracked in half and she looked like a Muppet for a second. How a dried-up old prune like that could smile and make it look almost human was beyond Josie.
“You threw the warlock away?” she asked Madge as they chose their favorite booth and Madge slapped the menus down on the scarred tabletop.
“No. My granddaughter asked us to donate it to some fancy autism charity ball auction.”
“Rich people want to buy a cardboard cutout that’s been fondled thousands of times?” Josie asked as she slid into the booth. Laura turned sideways and tried to tuck her belly under the table. Nope. Stuck. Madge watched, head cocked, as she struggled to get in.
“How’s that different from Paris Hilton?” Madge challenged, shaking her head as she observed Laura’s pathetic attempt. Josie felt a pang of compassion and stood, offering Laura a hand to unwedge herself.
“Touché.”
“You need a table,” Madge said, moving the menus over to a four-top.
“I need a crowbar,” Laura groaned. Josie smiled sympathetically and patted her hand. Two days overdue and Laura acted like the world was ending. The only part of her that seemed to function properly these days was her appetite.
“Let’s get you started with some fried green tomatoes,” Madge said, scribbling on her electronic tablet. “And you like thePeanut Butter Hulk Smash….” she mumbled, ignoring them.
