"Winnifred "Win" McNulty has always been wildly independent and not one to be coddled for her limb difference. Win has spent most of her life trying to prove that she can do it all on her own. With some minor adjustments, she's done just fine. Then a one-night stand at a costume party with the incredibly charming Bo changes everything. Win finds herself pregnant--and decides to keep it. While Bo is surprisingly elated to step up to the plate, Win is unsure of whether she can handle this new challenge. Together, Win and Bo decide to get to know one another as friends and nothing more while they embark on this parenting journey together. But, as they both should know by now, life rarely goes according to plan"--… (lisätietoja)

Super sweet with exceptionally likable main characters.

Win was born to a single mother who was so desperate to find a man that she sublimated her life and her needs to those of the many men who floated through their lives. Win was also born with a small and minimally functional hand. She functions just fine with her limb difference, but it has caused pain in her life, mostly due to others' reactions to it. Her mother's issues with men have actually left more scars. After Win ends a long and terrible relationship where she allowed a man to play her she decides she prefers to be on her own. She sinks into an easy if unfulfilling professional life and finds her respite in her relationship with her wonderful best friends who are married to one another, and were high school sweethearts. She also has lots of interests and her life is mostly good enough. When those best friends throw a Halloween party she meets a very alluring man (I won't provide details, it is a fun meetcute) who also has limb difference. His is from a recent leg amputation following a cancer diagnosis. Things happen which throw them together and we ride alongside.

Both main characters are nerdy, smart and kind, so it is fun to hang with them and root for them. There is some steam here, but despite it being detailed (especially with respect to cunnilingus) I did not find it terribly hot but YMMV. Like the characters' actions in the rest of the book, their sex scenes seemed polite, thoughtful, and pleasant. I mean, they are Canadian, maybe that is a thing? (JK! That is joke for my Canadian friends.)

This one is recommended for anyone looking for the warm fuzzies, like a Hallmark movie but with lots of oral. ( )

The combination of the title and the cover caught my eye. Win has a less-developed right hand and Bo is an amputee. Their story begins with a one-night stand resulting in pregnancy, which is not the sort of romance I tend to go for.

But it was clearly an important story to tell about these characters, because of the way their limb difference has shaped Win and Bo’s respective fears about parenthood and about whether they each should, or even could, conceive a child.

But this… this is what bittersweet means.
All ten fingers and toes.
Every sense of relief is sharply followed by shame. Every wave of shame is met with confusion. Confusion gives way to guilt. I immediately want to reassure myself that I wouldn’t have loved the baby less if they’d had my hand. That I don’t love myself any less than I would have if I had two fully formed hands. Even if I already know those things to be true, I still feel the need to repeat it, over and over. But my initial reaction was relief.
[...] “Well…” Bo sighs out, his tone deceptively serious, in juxtaposition with the twitch of his lips. “We’ll still love them, of course. Even if they’re, you know”—he grimaces—“four-limbed.”
I huff out a long breath, grateful for his deflection. “Disappointed?” I ask, slowly lowering my shirt and sitting up on the bed.
Bo’s lips shift into a wistful smile as he picks up my right hand from the mattress and squeezes it once. “No… but I’m not relieved either.”

Out on a Limb was one of my highly anticipated reads for July of 2023. I have to say that I quite enjoyed it. Both the main characters have disabilities. Win has a hand that was extra small from birth and Bo has had a leg amputated due to cancer. I felt the depiction of their disabilities was realistic and I appreciated that the author was writing Win's character from her own experience of having an underdeveloped hand. Bo was my definition of a swoony love interest. He was almost too perfect. I found the use of they/them when referring to the unborn child to be a little confusing. It made me want to think they were having twins rather than a single baby. I enjoyed the writing style and how the story unfolded and will definitely check out what this author does next. ( )
