This book tell the story of Molly who found her teenage daughter, Caitlyn is pregnant and that Richard's son is the culprit. Being pregnant at fifteen, it surely impacted both Molly and Cait's life as a whole. Molly, being a single mother is in dilemma. So is Richard who doesnt want his son to be in the position that he was in before, being
married before he is ready to do so. From barely knowing each parties, both parties begin to conversed regularly and before both of them realising, they beca
I found this books moving and heartrending, bringing out lots of emotions as the hero Richard and heroine Molly meet and develop a relationship as a result of their children, Cait and Trevor who must deal with an unplanned pregnancy. This was not a light hearted read and many hot button issues were included, so might not be the choice for all. I was dragged in and could not put the book down.
I found this book a hard one to read, and that mainly is due to the topic of teenage pregnancy. Also the way that Molly reacts to Richard I found to be grating on my nerves. Which isn't really a bad thing, that is just the way she is. Cailtly and Trevor are, well typical teens self absorbed not really willing to listen and follow sound advice. But really what teen is, and this hit home a little too much especially since I have a 16 year old in my house. It is a good story, and true to what I wou ...more

Hott Synopsis:
Until recently, Molly’s life with Cait has been a breeze. Molly may have been a single mom but they were a team and together things were great. Even being the vice-principal at her Cait’s high school was easy for them.
Until Trevor.
As soon as Trevor graced the halls of Molly knew he was going to be a problem but little did she know how this one teenager could wreak havoc on everything she holds dear. What Cait will do for this troubled teen knows no bounds.
Molly’s in over her head –
Very good book. Molly's daughter Cait is pregnant. Richard's son Trevor is the father. Trevor is acting up at home and at school and as vice principal Molly has to deal with him and his father. Molly and Richard have to find a way to help their kids deal with the consequences. They find themselves attracted to each other which only adds to the confusion. I really liked both Richard and Molly. Richard is a single father who suddenly has his seventeen year old son living with him. Trevor is sullen ...more

Loved this different kind of love story. Two lonely adults and two teenagers plus unplanned pregnancy makes for a different and difficult falling in love story. The author did a great job of making the plot believable and real, along with 4 characters that are real people with their own problems to throw a few bumps in the pathway to happily ever after. I will look for more books by this author in the future.
I never miss a Janice Kay Johnson book and haven’t for years. She creates strong characters in whom I believe and places them in situations that seem credible and prove to be character crucibles. Unfortunately, No Matter What was an atypical Johnson book. I had a problem with the two perfect teens who become surly rebels, but the greatest problem was that the relationship between the hero and heroine felt convenient rather than compelling, and the solution to the teen pregnancy vastly oversimpli ...more
I liked the complexity of this book - it dealt with teen pregnancy (specifically the heroine's daughter). While that aspect of the storyline wasn't always pleasant to read (15 year olds act like 15 year olds, and all that), I thought the romance was really well done. Both parents struggled with their decisions, and I liked seeing their initial dislike turn into something deeper.

Janice Kay Johnson is the author of sixty books for children and adults. Her first four published romance novels were coauthored with her mother, also a writer who has since published mysteries and children's books on her own. These were "sweet" romance novels, the author hastens to add; she isn't sure they'd have felt comfortable coauthoring passionate love scenes!

Janice graduated from Whitman Co
