Unable to take it much longer, I needed to clear my head. I rushed off, passing the restroom in the waiting room and darted into it. I locked the deadbolt behind me, thankful it was a single person restroom. I leaned back against the cold tile wall, and it was as if the walls of the Hoover Dam had come crumbling down. Tears rushed down my cheeks, soaking my face. My body was so heavy that I could hardly stand. I began to slide down the wall until I was sitting on the floor, my arms using every ounce of their might to keep my legs pulled up as they pressed against my huge belly. My body rocked back and forth, each sob ripping through harder than the last. My cell phone began to ring in my purse, but I had no energy to answer it. It continued ringing, but my cries soon drowned out the sound. After what must have been minutes, although it seemed like an eternity, a pounding started on the door of the restroom.

This story was so much more than I expected. I loved the first story but this one is by far the most touching and heartfelt story I have read in a while. I received and ARC for an honest review and I cried through this book, many times.
When these best friends do things, they do them right. That includes getting pregnant together, although not on purpose. Their feelings about their pregnancies are so different from each other and it is great to see how each in turn reacts to finding out. Their husbands are some amazing men.
This story goes into deep and heartbreaking circumstances in which Brooke faces some big decisions. Thank you for the chance to read and review this story. It has touched my heart.
