When Jane winds up celebrating her birthday by herself, she decides to make it special by striking some items off her wish list.

Unfortunately, the man, Mitch, catches her in the act and accuses her of a crime. His anger dissipates after her sincere apologies, and he then offers to help her with her wish list, giving her a passionate night, as well!

3.5 Fear is a personal battle 4  4

This was a deep story. Sadly, it’s one whose plot revolves around bed before vows. Not my favorite plot and this one ended up being rented by mistake, but it deserves a review. I would love a birthday like this, with the exception of the end. All I can say is it’s good that the heroine’s friends are so forgiving, but it was their mistake. They should have been keeping a better eye on her if they had plans. As stories go, as usual, both protagonist’s have deep traumas to work around, although the hero never gets to hear her’s. She is, however, proactive about engaging his once she realizes it is a hindrance to their relationship, and is very aware of how it will affect her and her child long term. I also have to give her kudos for recognizing this battle is his and she can’t just commit herself believing that she can change him. The only thing I didn’t like is the heroine comes across as a little cold to me. I’m not saying she is, but the artist seemed to focus on the hero’s fragile state and keeping the heroine as the strong and stable one so I don’t think her fragility was as well depicted as it could have been. Things like her separation decisions. Because they are so abrupt, we get the logic but not much of the emotional stress behind them or the issues she is dealing with leading up to them. Examples: we get her history of loneliness as a brief internal narrative; we hear that she’s having a rough pregnancy, but only through one line of the hero’s observations. Even the bleeding scare is experienced more through the hero than her. We just don’t really get to see or experience much of it with her, at least not deeply. All that said, I enjoyed the art and for the sort of story it was, it wasn’t bad. There was also some good and valid wisdom woven in, namely, there is no guarantee you can change anything about the other person, so don’t make any long term decisions based on the assumption you can.

to go through the grief 4  4

I understand that for some readers that you don't like the hero running back and forth between to the heroine or away because of his pain and fear but I found it rather interesting because it brings up this human level of dealing and moving forward from the pain and facing a subject that could go very badly. It also brings up the other side of the male perspective of fearing the pregnancy or birth going wrong as well as trying to be the support for the woman. Now, the heroine and hero meet when the heroine is out checking off a list of things to do on her birthday because she can't connect or find her family or friends. She thinks they have all forgotten but has no idea that they are setting up a surprise party for her. So, the hero helps her with checking off everything on the list that includes a hot night with no strings attached. They both comply and I have no problem about it because it's their decision as the adults. The next morning with the two separating on good good byes and plan not to see each other again till the heroine sees the plus sign on the pregnancy stick. When the heroine tells the hero, he doesn't take it well and demands to know what she wants from him like his financial situation that he'll gladly give but the heroine shouts she only wanted to tell him since he is the father. The heroine is supported by her four roommates, doesn't hear from the hero, and sets out to embrace this new change in her life. Meanwhile, the hero is anxious about the whole thing, doesn't know what to say to the heroine, is frightened about her being pregnant, and more. The whole thing is making him mess up in his work that his colleagues encourage him to fix his problem. He goes back to the heroine who ignores him but he apologizes for his behavior and asks to be a support to the heroine as well as getting to know her. They go out to cinemas, museums, galleries, anywhere to be together. The whole thing has the hero realize the heroine has been working hard to support the baby even with how hard the pregnancy has been on her and the heroine realizes the hero is trying his best to help her. The man does leave for work but he comes back with an apartment for the heroine to stay at and get the approval from the heroine's four flatmates. However, the heroine can see the he's holding himself back, especially on matters concerning the baby like seeing an ultrasound picture. We also see the hero's fear and anxiety simmer. Then the heroine gets a hint when she hears the hero say, "please forgive, OW,". It takes a bleeding(a placental abruption) scare for the heroine and the hero to meet at the hospital. The hero stays on to take care of the heroine and not have her lift a finger. The heroine takes this opportunity to ask the hero about the OW. The heroine and readers learn that two years ago, the hero was engaged to another woman who revealed to be pregnant a month after he went to South Pole. The plan was unexpected but they were happy about the pregnancy. Sadly, the hero gets news three weeks later that the fiancee died with the child in a ectopic pregnancy. The poor man wasn't able to make it to the funeral and by the time he got back, the friends and family were already getting over their grieving, while he was still starting. Plus, the man blames himself for killing the woman because if he hadn't gotten her pregnant then she wouldn't have died. The heroine comforts the hero but next day tells the him that she's leaving because she can't force him to be ready until he says he's ready himself. The hero tries to contact her but she shuts him out. It's there he's given the chance to either fight for the heroine or keep on running. He realizes that the OW may be dead but the heroine is alive and he doesn't want to lose her. So, he decides to fight and prove himself to the heroine. The man conspires with the heroine's roommates to make a big presentation to show the heroine his love for her. Right before the presentation, the hero gets word that the heroine has gone into labor and despite his fear of what may happen, he goes there to be her support. This gives the heroine courage because she sees how frightened the hero is with his shaky hands but he's acting calm and holding her hand. In the end, the heroine has a healthy baby girl and the hero takes them to his presentation. It's a beautiful house that near a school and a place where the hero has gotten a job in order to remain close to the heroine and their daughter. Next, the hero gets down on one knee and asks the heroine to marry him because she completes him. The heroine happily accepts and the two have a very sweet Christmas. I liked how the story went and ended.
