I’m a walking contradiction.
School principal who liberally drops the F bomb.
Fiercely independent yet willing to auction myself off for charity.
Serial monogamist who’s down for a no-strings one-night stand.

Except now I’ve gone from one-working-ovary to co-parent in the time it took a stick to turn blue.

F. Bomb.

Ian Donovan may be a richer-than-hell venture capitalist, but he’s no Prince Charming ready to sweep me off my feet. Good thing I don’t need him. I’ve been doing fine on my own for forty years, and I’m not about to start changing that now.

Ultrasounds, swollen feet, midnight cravings? Bring. It. On.

But why is it when you finally swear off men, you meet one who’s too sexy—and determined we can make it work?

F. Bomb.


“Great read that was funny, snarky, and completely entertaining.” -Bette H., Goodreads

“This book was exactly what I thought it would be: fast, fun, and fluffy.” -Jessica G., Goodreads

I adored this spin on a fairytale! First off, kudos to the author for creating characters of an older age - it adds even more reality to an already contemporary novel.” -Keshia M., Goodreads

I abso-freaking-lutely loved this one! Honestly, if this book is any indication (which I sincerely hope it is!) this line--Entangled's August imprint--is exactly what I've been looking for. I can't wait to read more from it, and (hopefully!) more non-YA reads from Ms. Hammerle too!” -Becky M., Goodreads

Get ready to laugh your butt off with Knocked-Up Cinderella, a chic-lit-ish contemporary romance. I smiled and laughed, and although there’s no sexplicity, their chemistry was amazing and they have some really steamy and downright hot scenes.” -Edgy Reviews

As someone who reads a lot of Romance, it can sometimes feel like a whole segment of the population is left out. We have YA books, New Age books, and our standard Contemporary Romance books chocked full of women worried about turning 30. Ther...

4/5; 4 stars; A-

This was a fun surprise. A contemporary romance with mature main characters, no manufactured drama, and a happy ending. The title wasn’t the greatest but that’s minor. This new to me author is someone I will keep an eye out for. ...more

When I saw Julie Hammerle looking for reviews of her soon to be released seasoned romance (romance for the 40 and older set) Knocked-Up Cinderella it sounded like a story I’d really enjoy so I requested it and I’m so glad I did.

Ughhhh this book was just so dang CUTE but also funny, snarky, and sexy!!

I immediately loved Ian and Erin as our main characters as well as their storyline. I also liked that they were in their early 40’s instead of the usual mid-20’s/early 30’s rom-com characters.

It’s been a while since I have indulged in chick lit. I forgot how sugary and cute they can be. And predictable. Boy and girl meet, things go well, throw in some drama, kiss and make up, and TADA! HEA. Simple, predicable formula. It’s kind of like watching the Hallmark channel, just funnier. Don’... ...more

This was exactly what I needed right now. A lovely, sweet, romantic story. I liked Ian and Erin a lot. I loved that they were both in their 40's (although, I have to admit, they acted very immature for their age sometimes and that annoyed me).
