One Moment Please by Amy Daws



That awkward moment when an ER doctor has to inform you that you’re pregnant… with his baby.

Three things Lynsey Jones knows about the hot doctor: he’s grouchy, an arrogant jerk, and strangely obsessed with pie.

Three things Dr. Dick knows: he doesn’t talk about his past, he doesn’t do relationships, and the crazy girl in the hospital cafeteria who ate a fistful of French silk pie…is annoyingly irresistible.

After a chance meetup at a bar and a heated cab ride together, things come to a head and now instead of hating each other, they’re horizontal in a bed.

Three months later, the weird cafeteria stalker who crept out of Dr. Dick’s house like a thief in the night, winds up as his patient in the ER after her Tinder date from hell.

Dr. Dick is prepared to keep it cool and professional. That is until her bloodwork reveals that she’s pregnant.

What really throws him for a loop…is that the surprise baby…is his.





I usually say this at the end to wrap up my review but I’m going to say it now before anything else is said — this book must be read! I am recommending. I am elbowing. I am virtually holding this book in front of your face and telling you to read it! 📘

The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of One Moment Please is the amount of times it made me tear up. I was constantly blinking back tears every few chapters. I was so emotional, I could have given Lynsey and her pregnant hormonal self a run for her money. Well almost, anyways. Lol.

Josh and Lynsey’s journey was of the Herculean scale. It was complicated from beginning to end that I almost wanted to throw in the towel at times for them — so they (and me) didn’t have to go through another heart-crushing moment! My gosh the issues they go through was frustrating, yet so very necessary. I have to give Lynsey mad props for being able to have the strength to go through all that drama.


Amy Daws has created such complex, well developed characters. I admit whilst in the middle of reading this book I didn’t see the growth so easily at first, as nothing ever seemed resolved. But Lynsey, she pushed for more — not only in Josh, but in their relationship and that really opened my eyes to the amount of progress these two characters have made since they first met.

Josh is a difficult character. He’s set in his ways, constantly demanding and a hard shell to crack, but despite all that he’s a very appealing character. You can’t hate the guy. You can get irritated with him. But you can’t hate him.

For the majority of the book you don’t really see a lot of openness from Josh when it comes to his personal life. And when you do it comes out as snippets. He’s a bit of a jigsaw puzzle. With each little snippet he shares, you get a piece until you have a big enough image to figure out the rest of the puzzle — which in this instance is Josh’s entire reasoning behind his tough exterior and his detached behaviour towards Lynsey and the situation they’re in. He’s Dr. Dick for a reason.

Josh and Lynsey meet in an usual yet entertaining as hell kind of way. One Moment Please is a standalone (part of the Wait With Me series) with an initial enemies to lovers romance trope. They’re complete opposites in personality so that’s another element you can look forward to in this rom-com.

Whilst you have a somewhat unemotional character in Josh, the other half of this duo; Lynsey is nothing but feelings. She’s the light to Josh’s dark. Told from dual POVs — there’s no denying the contrast in their character traits. Put that with the very awkward situation they’re in… and you’ll have butting heads.

Daws always has a way of writing stories that touches on serious matters that’s both relatable and realistic but always adding light-heartedness into it to ease the heaviness of the subject. She has a way of making you feel like you’re going through it all right alongside the characters. Doesn’t matter if it’s a funny moment or a more somber one — her characters leap off the pages and it was no different with Josh and Lynsey. Even her secondary characters had so much personality, they make an impact even if they were only there for a brief time.

Shout out to Lynsey’s besties, Kate and Dean. They were a little bit in your face for my liking but I can appreciate the love and effort behind their behaviour. Kate is actually the heroine in Wait With Me (first book in the series) and after having only read One Moment Please so far, I’m eager than ever to read Kate’s book to see her in full Kate-dom. Now, I haven’t completely figured out my thoughts on Dean yet. It’s currently a love/hate thing. But I’m hoping to see more of him in the future.

Josh’s friend Max on the other hand I was vibing with the minute he was introduced. I’m a fan of any friend who doesn’t bullshit.. but yet who can totally ease your mind if need be. Josh had the perfect friend in Max for support.


Overall this was an absolute dreamy read especially during this time where we’re all staying at home and looking for comfort reads. If you enjoy romance books that involve opposites unexpectedly thrown in together for a topsy-turvy roller coaster ride full of emotion, friendships, good food and life changing experiences, add this one to your TBR! It’s fairly well paced, with the first chapter kicking it off with a bang. You won’t be able to put it down.

RATING: ♥♥♥♥½

P.S. I’m inserting a picture of French Silk Pie. This particular pie plays a very important role in this book, and the entire time I was reading I was asking myself, “What is silk pie??”

If you’ve already read One Moment Please prior to my review, then you know the importance of this pie. And, if you were like me and didn’t know what it was or what it looked like, well here ya go folks. 

For those, who haven’t read the book yet — when you do come across the first moment this pie takes centre stage.. you won’t be wondering what it looks like anymore. You’re welcome! 😉😊
