The Best Laid Plans by Lauren Gallagher

Gabe and Shahid have just had another adoption fall through.  It isn't because they are gay, it's because Shahid is Muslim.  Kendra and Gabe are teachers at the same high school and good friends.  Gabe and Shahid supported Kendra during her ugly divorce and she wants to do something to pay them back.  She suggests that she carry their baby for them.  When they have the idea go do it the "old fashioned way", Shahid is initially reserved because Gabe is bisexual.  They end up with the perfect solution - they share parenting responsibilities and Kendra lives with them.  When their plans get derailed, will the trio survive.

This was my first dabble in New Adult, alternating first person.  The book was so powerful that I was an emotional wreck at the end.  The characters were wonderful.  I loved how the relationship worked and worked so well.  I just hated the unexpected news and wish that it would have worked out different.

I received this ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.  Thank you!
