She is terrified to tell her father.
enna Quinn lives a carefree life, but is drawn to Sloan and his children. She is willing to have an arrangement with Sloan, but will not commit to anything. That is not her style. The only problem being, her flu turns out to be pregnancy. Sloan is trying to keep his little family together and still live a full life. When he meets Jenna, he is immediately taken by her attitude and fun loving personality, and she has a great relationship with his girls. When Brook tells him she is pregnant he hits the roof, but tries to keep his cool so that he can help his daughter make the biggest decision of her life. He doesn't count on Jenna being pregnant too, and on the kinds of emotions that will play on all those involved.
usan Gable's writing style draws you in immediately. Her characters spark to life, while making you feel for their dilemmas. The emotional roller coaster that they go through is shared by the reader. I cried or rejoiced along with them, and was content at the end.
The Pregnancy Test
is a superb read, charged with emotion.
