SynopsisEveryone just stop for one bleeping minute so we can all get real with each other. Being a mom is some tough $#!†. You're constantly wearing questionable substances that make you ask, "is this chocolate or ... oh, crap ..." and your purse is merely a receptacle for three-week-old snacks and broken crayons. Let's be honest ... even when we're doing this “mom” thing right, we're somehow doing it completely wrong. Pardon us while we dust off our collective Mother of the Year trophy and proudly present you with an epic anthology of #MOMFAILS. *Stories inspired by real life (unless you’re a cop, then it’s all complete fiction). Names and situations have been changed to protect the guilty (and by guilty, we mean the moms). Because motherhood is a battlefield and we're all just trying to survive by any means necessary. Featuring this amazing lineup: Alissa York, A.M. Willard, BL Berry, Carina Adams, Claudia Burgoa, Crystal Burnette, Dylan Allen, Faith Andrews, Gia Riley, J.A. DeRouen, Kate Anslinger, Leddy Harper, LK Collins, LL Collins, Marie James, Piper Rayne, Riann C. Miller, Shari J. Ryan, Stephanie Rose, Stephie Walls, SM West, TL Swan, Teresa Michaels, and foreword written by: Nicole Kane Knepper.

#MomFail is an anthology of novellas by Moms about Moms written by some of the hottest authors today. These stories are so funny, pretty much embarrassing and so relatable as life as a mother in today’s society. They are all great stories but I am going to highlight the ones that stood out in my mind. I also read “Return Policy” by Leddy Harper and hers is one that I was going to highlight as well because it definitely stood out too. One of the best in this novella of stories.
Return Policy by Leddy Harper—I totally loved the mom in this story who is going thru the motions and is getting back into life. She is trying to fake it and then to fake it with kiddie gunk on her clothing…ive been there, done that. I totally can relate. The situation the mom in this story ended up in was so scary but how it ended, wow. I so hope this story ends up a full length story because I loved the BFF in this story and it feels like this needs to be a full length story. That is how awesome this story was.
Your Mom Does What? by Faith Andrews—This was one awesome story about how Jessa Green and her life as a parent to two girls. Her oldest child took her flashdrive to school by accident. No biggie you would think but the technology teacher (known as Mr. Hottie) gets a peak into the secret life of one of his kids parents. The romance and steam out of this story was great and it was all packed into this short novella. I loved it.
A Day in My Chaotic Life by Claudia Burgoa—this is a story that takes place in the Decker world. It shows how close family is and when things get tough, how family bans together and stands tough. I enjoyed how the author showed the love and closeness the family is and how they saw even though life was overwhelming, they made sure to make time. I loved the message she put across.
Roadtrip by LL Collins---It was hilarious and sweet novella. It was definitely something needed, it came across as lighthearted and showed how every parent has THOSE moments with 3 little boys late for a trip which makes us real. I loved how LL showed how every parent has the moments yet they bounce back and still make for good parents. I loved the silly and funny moments and the story was awesome. Short and sweet.
Sex Weeks by Piper Rayne—This novella is part of the Single Dads Club Series and we get a glimpse into Garrett and Charlies future. In this novella, we see that every days life has caught up with Charlie, Garrett and their family. I don’t want to say anymore except this is one you do not want to miss, this is a must read in the Single Dads Club series and in the #MomFail!
This is a must read collection of novellas by must read authors like Alissa York, A.M. Willard, BL Berry, Carina Adams, Crystal Burnette, Dylan Allen, Gia Riley, J.A. DeRouen, Kate Anslinger, LK Collins, Marie James, Riann C. Miller, Shari J. Ryan, Stephanie Rose, Stephie Walls, SM West, TL Swan, Teresa Michaels, and foreword written by: Nicole Kane Knepper. These are stories that are written and they are funny, witty and at times emotional. I have to say these are some of the best novella stories I have read in a while. You don’t want to miss out on these stories.
