Current Mood: Freaking Out.
Erin McAvoy is living her best life. A lover of tacos, witty T-shirts, and Pinterest, Erin is always ready to tell you about her favorite thing—the animals she tends to at one of the nation's best zoos. But then there's that other thing she doesn't like to talk about: how a supposedly-for-fun DNA test revealed that Erin has a strong genetic predisposition to breast and ovarian cancer. She'd like to conveniently ignore that elephant in the room, except for the fact that unless she does something soon, Erin will miss out on her only chance to have a baby.
Up to this point, the only guy she's needed in her life was a sloth—the animal kind, not the lazy kind—named Barry. Turns out, if you want to have a baby, a sloth is not the right man for the job. Growing up in a conservative family, Erin's never even considered any other options, until now. She doesn't have a lot of time to wait, and online dating isn't for the faint heart.
When co-worker Xander Barnes—foe—or friend?—or maybe even more?—comes up with a plausible solution to give her the baby she wants, Erin realizes this may be her last chance to grab the tiger by the tail. Her family may not agree with her choices, but Erin knows that if one leopard can change his spots, then she can too. And maybe, just maybe, this will be everything she's ever wanted.

This is a great book about a devastating subject. I love chick lit but I think that Ready for Whatever transcends the genre. This is chick lit with soul. Kathryn R. Biel has created an emotional bomb with Millie as her ground zero. Once the bomb explodes, the story not only focuses on the immediate damage to Millie but also how the shrapnel affects her circle of friends and family. Her best friend is unable to cope with the new Millie and her father is also deeply affected by the past and how it impacts on his daughter. This emotional bomb also affects the reader and I found myself howling with laughter and crying with sorrow at multiple points in the book. If you read this novel and are not profoundly affected by it, I suggest you book a surgery yourself as you need a heart! I am really looking forward to reading more books in The UnBRCAble Women Series. Yay for chick lit with soul.
