Teaser Tuesday - Plan On It

PlanOnItHeart_Cover 

My Teaser Tuesday today is from Plan on It by Kathy Dunnehoff. The protagonist is biology professor Hattie McLean, whose doctor tells her she is beginning peri-menopause--and she's only 34 years old! So she starts a search for the perfect man to father her child before she runs out of time (and eggs). Hattie is speaking in the first sentence.


          "There's some evidence that women are attracted to the body odor of men who resemble, genetically, the woman's father because it helps us avoid someone too genetically different, which wouldn't be an optimal match either."
          Rose seemed to really consider that. She just may be coming around. "Kind of like love at first smell?"


I really enjoyed this book. Some parts of it are laugh-out-loud funny. Here's the synopsis from Amazon:
Six men in six months. It's a logical plan to Professor Hattie McLean. Date 6 men in 6 months and one will be the clear choice to father her child. But biology involves the heart as well... even if she didn't plan on it!

    1. Ooops! I forgot to give the location of the Teaser on my Kindle. It's at Location 454.
      I love when authors take a familiar saying ("love at first sight") and twist it into something new ("love at first smell")

  3. That's a new thought(: Wow, our teasers are quite similar (both are about women anyway). Thanks for pointing out the typo in mine!

  13. Hi,

    I love funny romance books!! I enjoy all types of romance books but I have never heard of this author before. Great teaser. I will have to add it to my TBR.

    I am new to blogging and this was only the second time for my teaser. Take a look at mine and see what you think.

    1. Me too. I think humor in a story--even a serious story--helps break up the tension and gives the reader a rest. Besides, it's just plain fun!

  16. AHHH, that's kind of creepy to me but I have heard that before.

    Thanks for stopping by my TT and happy first day of spring!

    1. I know what you mean. But the sense of smell is powerful--probably in ways we aren't even aware of!

  17. One thing about "love at first smell", you have to get a bit closer for it to hit.

    Interesting teaser.

    1. I'm laughing at your comment. If you can smell the person without getting very close... well, you probably don't want to get any closer, do you?

  18. hahaha love at first smell is interesting. although accurately true... I love it when men smell good. :)

    thanks for stopping by!

    1. She has a very logical plan, but it doesn't quite work out as she expected... and that's what makes the book good!

  28. Love at first smell! Wouldn't that change things a lot if everyone believed that! I think that deodorant companies would probably either find that their revenues dropped dramatically OR rose higher than ever with older style smells coming back into fashion haha
