Out of the Mouth of Babes by Stephanie Fowers

Kids get away with saying most anything, like Aunt Gina should marry that "charmer" she met at her sister's wedding.

But Gina won’t have anything to do with that guy who played with her heart that night—he’s a heartbreaker—no matter how much her niece and nephews adore him now. Besides, the two come from different worlds. Gina’s a workaholic career woman; he’s the irresponsible flirt. Whenever they meet, there are fireworks, and not the good kind.

That is, until her sister wins a cruise to the Caribbean and asks the two to babysit for 2 weeks. Sparks fly as they find a way to play house without burning the place down. Forget marriage—these two shouldn't even date.

And what do kids know anyway? Maybe everything.

This book has a lot of humor and funny moments in it- mostly involving young children as Gina and Ashley become co-babysitters for their niece and nephews.  It seems that everything that can go wrong, does go wrong at some point or another which makes everything seem all the more crazy.

I liked Gina and Ash.  They were fun, relatable characters and I enjoyed their interactions and banter, especially in the beginning with the "first meet".  I wish there would have been more of those kind of moments.  Sometimes I felt like the focus of the story got to be more about the children than Gina and Ashley which made this book feel a bit long.  (It IS a long book at over 300 pages!)  The kids are cute, don't get me wrong, and the author nailed the ages, but maybe a more condensed version of all their antics?

Regardless, I really did enjoy the story.  It was easy to visualize and easy to like all the characters involved. Their faults made them human and endearing and I loved how it all came together in the end.  This book is guaranteed to make you smile.
