My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So I was walking through the library yesterday, trying to kill a little time before I picked the kids up from school and wandering the shelves is how I find some of the best books, and the title and cover of this one peaked my interest.

Toni is the "normal" sister in a family of prodigies, and she has made it her mission to control and keep them all on a schedule and out of trouble. The thing is Toni is just as talented as her siblings, but in a completely different way - she can manage ten prodigies and keep them all under control and the fighting to a minimum! No one person can do that, in fact it takes a team of people to try to do her job at home when she actually takes a "real job".

Ricky Lee is in security, and he just happens to run into Toni, and finds her fascinating and he is willing to do whatever it takes to spend some time with her. Of course he is only thinking about fun in the beginning, but before he realizes what has happened he has found himself not wanting to be without her, ever.

I laughed out loud throughout this book at some of the one-liners and jokes, insults and general conversations between the characters! The book begins with Toni waiting with the kids to get an autograph of a hockey player, as Ricky Lee starts to take interest in her, one of the smallest siblings looks at him and says "Are you my Daddy?" Of course Ricky Lee is taken aback, but come to find out this is Toni's trick at keeping men away from her, she has taught all the kids to ask that of any man who approaches her. It is so funny! There are so many other great lines and comebacks that you'll be laughing and falling in love with the characters the whole way.

When I picked up this book, I had no idea it was the EIGHTH book in a series. Oops! Now anyone who has read my reviews knows that I absolutely hate, despise with a pain reading books out of order. The thing is that I never knew I read this book out of order until I went to write my review and found the look list! Opps!

This book was so well written that it doesn't depend on you having read all the books in order. You can easily read this book and understand the story just fine. Of course you do start wondering about other characters in the book, and I was hoping when I got on Goodreads to write the review I would find more books about the other characters, so I was excited when I found out that there are seven books in front of this to read! Yeah!! Back to the library I go to find them all!!!

This book is definitely a fun read, and I am excited to read more in this series.
