A hot doc’s one-night-stand turns into something more in this sexy romantic comedy

I’ve never been a planner. Thinking things through isn’t my strong suit. I’m more of a wing it and see how it goes kind of girl.

I eat pie for breakfast and I don’t have the best track record for committing to things, the exception being where my family is concerned.

So, when my identical twin learns she can’t get pregnant, I’m determined to help. Even if it means stretchy pants and a sex hiatus. But, before my waistline disappears, along with my sex life, I set out in search for a night of no-strings-attached sex.

It all seemed so simple, until…

I have the best sex of my life!

The fertility hormones put my libido into overdrive!

I run into my one-night stand at the fertility clinic…

Yeah, the sexy doctor I went home with is that kind of a doctor. His skillful hands know every part of a woman’s body. When I see him in his white lab coat, my body knows what it wants. More of him. But just until these hormones get under control. Sounds like a good plan, right?

By the time Wednesday rolls around, I’m exhausted from restless nights and reoccurring sex dreams about Cole. My work days have been mostly filled with client meetings with Sue at the helm, and my focus tends to drift to a continuous loop of daydreams where his hard, sweaty body thrusts on top of me and his dirty words fill my ear. I’m pretty sure I’m worse off now in the pent-up sexual frustration department than I was before I slept with him on Saturday night. 

For once, I’m actually excited to put on a paper gown and have a stranger insert a speculum into my vagina. I’m hoping this appointment will refocus my attention onto the task at hand, helping Ellie and Josh to start a family. 

The one thing I didn’t expect was to have such fantastic sex that now I’m going to have to wait nine months to do it again. I think I might die. 

Ellie’s fertility specialist is located in a medical complex near downtown. When I enter the building, I find Ellie waiting in the lobby for me. 

She threads her arm through mine and gives me a squeeze. “You are amazing for doing this. What would I do without you?” 

She’s smiling, but I think she knows she might have less craziness in her life without me. 

“How are you feeling? You’re sure about this, right? I want you to be absolutely sure—I’d die if something like this came between us.” Ellie has been texting, calling, asking this all week. Almost as if she’s not sure now. Well, I’m almost sure—no, I’m sure. Damn Cole. 

I don’t mention my lack of sleep, my out of control libido or the fact that the chocolate chip cookie I ate for breakfast is making my stomach ache. My body’s not exactly a ringing endorsement for you to put your baby inside me. 

“I’m great!” My smile is a picture of enthusiasm.

Best Laid Plans is Erin Hawkins's debut novel. She lives in Colorado with her husband and three young children. When not writing, she enjoys reading, running, spending time in the mountains, and watching reality TV.
