When Danielle Stuart meets the Baumgartners, her life doesn’t need to get any more complicated. Studying Italian on scholarship at the University of Michigan, Dani is haunted by a horrible tragedy that her husband, Mason, simply can’t come to terms with. But when she meets Carrie Baumgartner, and then her handsome husband, Doc, she finds her attraction to the couple irresistible, no matter how complicated things might get. While the two women bond over being childless and yet surrounded by children in the university’s married housing complex, it’s Doc Baumgartner who really brings them together with a game-changing idea that serves to reshape all of their lives.
First, I must say that when I saw there was another installment in The Baumgartner series, I simply jumped for joy and grabbed the book before anyone else had a chance to get their grubby little paws on it. *Evil Laugh*
Ms. Kitt continues to amaze me with the depth that she brings to this series. I’m am completely fascinated with Doc and Carrie, but more importantly with the love they have for one another. They are extremely generous, open-minded individuals who seem to bring joy to everyone they come in contact with and Dani is no exception. Moreover, I enjoyed watching Doc’s alpha male come to light when it came to protecting his “girls” and giving them everything their hearts desired. He’s a gentle giant that I just wanted to take home and keep for myself. Carrie is one lucky woman….so is Dani for when I come to think of it.
There were times that I laughed, cried and wanted to scream at the injustice and pain that both Dani, Mason, Carrie and Doc were experiencing. The tragedy that Dani and Mason found themselves faced with at such a young age ripped my heart out. It’s hard enough for more mature adults to deal with such a tragedy, but for young, college students who are still learning about themselves and trying to find their way in this world, it’s even harder as evidence by the events that play out between Dani and Mason.
The Baumgartners Plus One is a captivating story full of heart, laughter, but most importantly love. Now don’t get me wrong, the sex is smoking hot and will singe your e-reader, but the depth of the characters and the level of emotion that Ms. Kitt will bring out of you as you read more about Doc and Carrie’s journey will simply take your breath away, put a smile on your face, and a tear in your eye. I fall in love with both of these characters more and more with each story.
Ms. Kitt manages to handle a difficult tragedy that can happen to anyone with such finesse that you can’t help but want to read more. In fact, I read this story in one sitting. If you’re looking for a captivating story, full of heart, laughter, and joy, with sex scenes that are guaranteed to keep you wet and wanton throughout the story, then The Baumgartners Plus One is definitely the book to read. Bravo Ms. Kitt and I’m sorry for your loss. Many blessings!
