    The novella is a deceptively difficult form to master One one hand, it requirescharacter and plot development than a short story On the other, the narrative arc has to be a lot tighter than you d find in a full length novel A romance novella is especially difficult to pull off because there often isn t enough space for the main characters to be set up as three dimensional individuals, develop a mutual attraction, negotiate the complications keeping them apart and, finally, come together The novella is a deceptively difficult form to master One one hand, it requirescharacter and plot development than a short story On the other, the narrative arc has to be a lot tighter than you d find in a full length novel A romance novella is especially difficult to pull off because there often isn t enough space for the main characters to be set up as three dimensional individuals, develop a mutual attraction, negotiate the complications keeping them apart and, finally, come together in a realistic and satisfying conclusion.Author Madison Johns makes a good start by having her couple already know one another Kimberly Steele, pregnant and unmarried, works for lawyer Jeremy Preston In this way, the plot gets a neat jump start Jeremy s client, the representative for a beauty product company, sees Kim and thinks she d be a great spokes model for their new perfume This is where the plot starts to falter Out of the blue, this interest makes Jeremy begin to see Kim in a new light and the great love chase begins.The problem is that instead of developing Jeremy fully and giving us a genuine basis for his attraction to Kim and the necessary ingredients are there she s attractive, kind, and a damsel in distress the author throws in unrealistic complicating factors First there s Clare, Jeremy s sort of girlfriend She s also Jeremy s employeeand also a model Clare presents some sort of threat that never actually materializes Yet Jeremy feels it necessary to propose to her to protect Kim Then there s the false complication of Kim s pregnant but unmarried status being a danger to her reputation and that of the cosmetics company Maybe in 1980 Not today At the very least, Johns doesn t make the danger real Either way, Jeremy uses this fear to trick Kim into marrying him Of course, Kim is secretly in love with him The basis for her feelings is never established But BOOM a happy ending is enjoyed by all The reader is left shaking her head and wondering how the heck we got from point A to point B.Johns does a pretty good job with Kim s character She s funny and likable I did get a surprise at the end when I found out she couldn t be older than nineteen or twenty Her language and behavior make her seem older Her young age also raisesquestions about Jeremy s character He seems in his mid thirties, but that would make him a little old for Kim Then again, maybe he isn t that old These are details the author should have made clear early on.Again, I think the problem is the novella form rather than the story itself Johns had a good romantic situation but not enough room to execute it effectively The result is a full length romance novel played on fast forward

    Having read another book by Madison Johns I was excited to hear she had a novella I was not disappointed The story was really good I was sad when it was over Other than a few minor typo s my only complaint was the length of it The characters were enjoyable although I will fully admit that her leading man made me wary in the beginning, but again this could have been fleshed outIn the end I was happy with the story and the characters Madison Johns has the ability to tell a story with Having read another book by Madison Johns I was excited to hear she had a novella I was not disappointed The story was really good I was sad when it was over Other than a few minor typo s my only complaint was the length of it The characters were enjoyable although I will fully admit that her leading man made me wary in the beginning, but again this could have been fleshed outIn the end I was happy with the story and the characters Madison Johns has the ability to tell a story with humor and love that makes you yearn for just a bitIt is worth the 99 cents she charges for it I give Pretty and Pregnant a solid 4 out of 5 apples

    This was kind of corny, but sweet romance It did contain two of my favorite things dachshunds and perfume, which made me happy If it wasn t about those two things, I may not have ranked the book as high as I did, and it would be downgraded to okay There was a lot in the book that seemed improbable, but not so much that it couldn t be enjoyed Its a short book, and if you re just looking for something that is easy to read and will put a smile on your face, this is a good choice.

    I really enjoyed this adorable book and adorable it was This was an easy book to escape into and I enjoy every minute I spent reading this short story I hope there will be a sequel because Pretty and Pregnant was simply precious

    This story was ok The wording seemed a bit simplistic to me I didn t get a great desire to know the characters better Kimberley comes off as quite an airhead and Jeremy is fickle, proposing to 2 women in one day.

    Cute but I felt as if the story was scrambled together and not very well thought out.
