Getting the Goods is a stand-alone novel from author Elizabeth Perry. My only issue is that I didn’t find this book sooner. I absolutely loved everything about this read, this author has a brilliant writing style that totally connects the reader to the storyline and the amazing characters she has created.
This read was filled with laughs, banter, passion, feistiness, romance and a whole lot of brilliance. I loved the concept of this book, Gabriella has taken it upon herself with the help/guidance of best friend Maria to become a mother in the most unconventional way – stealing sperm, but what she never expected was for Conner Andrews Victim Number 1 to come barrelling back into her life after the humiliation she faced the morning after with him. Especially when she finds out that he is her new boss!
The connection and the back and forth banter these two have from the start is what really sets the tone to this read. Gabriella is always wanting to find any way possible to push Conner’s limits, and what she doesn’t realise is that Conner is actually finding it quite refreshing and amusing, to be honest, is one of the things he actually likes about her. But underneath all the back and forth banter, you could tell there was something sizzling especially after spending time with Conner’s family. They both realise there is actually more to each other than the deal/agreement they made while on their week getaway could something actually become of them? Could Conner go against all he knew and settle down & become a father as that is a major part of being in Gabriella’s life? Can Gabriella finally get her HEA and become pregnant and have the family she always wanted? And will Conner be apart of that life?
I read this book in one sitting! I was truly captivated with this read and couldn’t put it down, it had me laughing out loud, grinning from ear to ear and even feel some of their pain in certain situations through this book, maybe even a few tears. But this was an amazing comedy romance read that I would read over and over again.
With that being said there were many secondary characters in this read that most defiantly deserve their own book such as Carter & Maria, I would love to read their story especially if Conner and Gabriella are involved in the story!
This is an incredible read that has set me up for reading more of Elizabeth Perry’s books. This is a book not to be missed!
