I have always been a sucker for a good ‘ol single parent romance, but being served up a double dose of single parent goodness is just…”Chef’s Kiss” 💋 This has all the best parts of so many of my favorite tropes. Like it’s my own little smorgasbord of literary deliciousness. So run over to Amazon and grab your copy ASAP. Here are a few of the things you can look forward to with this book.

🥰Single Parent x 2
🖤Frenemies to Lovers

🥰All The Feels
Rhode’s and Rylee are just remarkable. Separately I love them both. Together I am OBSESSED! They are both suffering over a recent tragedy that affected them both. When they meet let’s just say it’s almost loathe at first sight. They both are definitely attracted to each other but are trying to keep things strictly professional… that is until they can’t control themselves anymore. They are just explosively HAWT!!🔥 I mean DAAANNNNGGGG! Rylee was so sassy yet strong at the same time. Rhodes was alpha and grumpy, but also oh so swoony. I just couldn’t get enough of them, and don’t even get me started on their little scene stealing adorable offspring. So.Stinkin.Cute. They had it all mapped out for their parents. Lol
I went in not really knowing too much about this book and would recommend you do the same. It will make it that much more impactful when you do read it. Every scene will pop you right upside the head with it’s powerfully unforgettable storyline. A truly remarkable and unique take on the single parent romance trope.

I’m a total sucker for a single parent romance any day of the week and twice on a Sunday. But when the hero’s heart gets simultaneously captured by the mama and the little at the same time… 🥺 this gal is for sure a goner. West and Callie will melt hearts, panties and kindles everywhere because they are fire. 🔥 Their chemistry is blazing! This whole tale is sweet, it’s swoony, it’s steamy, and so dang dreamy. 😍 I shed some tears too y’all. This book was just something extraordinarily wonderful.
Author Rebecca Yarros never fails to capture her audience with her deeply emotional and well developed character arcs. I know that I will always get a well written story that will run me through the gamut of all the emotions from start to finish. I always expect to be broken before I’m put back together, but I am always so glad for the journey her books take me on.
I look forward to being given even a small reprieve from the craziness that is my everyday life of being a wifey and mama to seven kiddos and phenomenal books like, A Little Too Close is just what I needed. Five Fantastically Unforgettable Stars!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Blurb:From USA Today bestselling author Rebecca Yarros comes a small town, single parent romance.Nine years ago, Weston Madigan saved me. I came to Colorado penniless, heartbroken, and pregnant, searching for a fresh start. Weston gave me a job at his family’s resort, then left the next day and never returned, not even to visit.Then I stumble in on Weston cooking breakfast shirtless—gloriously, inappropriately shirtless—in the shared kitchen of my duplex in employee housing. Given the shock on both our faces, he wasn’t expecting a roommate either, let alone two.The growly pilot is only home to start his family’s new heli-skiing operation. I can handle being his temporary roommate, right? Chemistry and attraction aren’t impossible to ignore when you agree on ground rules. Besides, even with those gorgeous, brooding brown eyes, the guy is a walking thundercloud…until my daughter, Sutton, makes him laugh and he smiles at me. Then everything changes. Cue inconvenient heart flip.This is only temporary.I can’t fall for Weston.Will. Not. Fall. For. Weston.But rules go out the window when you’re a little too close.

I don’t want to be someone’s dirty little secret. I know all too well what that feels like.
Guarding my heart means staying out of pro football player Brock Williams’s bed and out of the spotlight. But after all these years, he’s exactly like I remember, charming, determined, and used to getting what he wants. And what he wants now is me.
The chemistry between us is undeniable. And the guy I always saw as a player is now the one who makes my heart beat fast—the one who leaves dirty love notes on my pillow.
Oh, yeah… he also happens to be my brother’s best friend.
Hooking up with Joey is a bad idea, but that’s not going to stop me.
I remember the first time we met. Joey showed up at campus to visit her brother, and when she came walking out in that little yellow bikini, I stopped seeing her as my best friend’s little sister and saw her as someone I desired but could never have. It turns out I was wrong.
For now, it’s stolen moments and promises on paper… of all the things I’m going to do once I make her mine. Her brother might not forgive me, but she’s worth the risk. I can’t deny myself any longer.
I’m tired of sitting on the sidelines. It’s time to execute the play and show Joey how our story ends.
HOLY HOT BROTHERS BEST FRIEND’S ROMANCE Y’ALL!! I can’t even blame Joey for banging Brock, or Brock for banging Joey. Because these two were just all kinds of steamy and dreamy, forbidden/secret, forced proximity, sports romance deliciousness. A team trade and a recent not so pleasant experience has found both Brock and Joey both living with Caleb. It may have been a while since they had seen each other but suddenly Brock noticed Caleb’s little sister isn’t so little anymore. She is a gorgeous, sweet and oh so tempting grown woman now. He can’t help but to want to touch, taste and tease every part of her and she wants to let him.
I couldn’t get enough of this couple. Brock and Joey’s romantic journey is just the kind that gets me all hot and bothered, gives me heart flutters, and has me rip roarin’ through the pages from the first word to the very last syllable. Tell Me A Story was a unique take on the brother’s best friend trope with its flirty, fun and even a bit filthy banter by way of secret hidden messages and letters left for each other. But also it was during this time that they built this deep and strong connection with each other. Learning about what each other wanted in the future. I love the element of just how hard it was for these two to keep their hands to themselves. They tried, they really did. Their chemistry was just undeniable and palpable but they had this deeply emotional connection that was stronger and really took them both by surprise.
So well written it scorched up the pages and sucked me right into this storyline. A smoking hot and swoony sweet story that while has the element of “will they get caught by the brother/best friend” it is a low angst story without a lot of OM/OW drama. Truly Authors Kaylee Ryan and Lacey Black have such great writing chemistry the story flows flawlessly. Now I’m not sure if they just write the entire thing together or switch off chapters or if one takes one character’s POV and the other takes the others but either way I cannot tell which is which if they are.. So they definitely rocked it out all around in my opinion. I loved all the characters in this book. They were just “Chefs kiss 💋 ”The secondary ones as well. ( crossing my fingers for more from these character’s) Definitely pick up this and let Brock and Joey…Tell You Their Story!

Crew Taylor is the picture of perfection, if gruff, grumpy, and prone to throw a punch is your type. Clearly, it’s mine or I wouldn’t be begging him to bite the bullet and claim my virginity as his own.
Sure, he’s a bit of a caveman, broody and bossy and oh so naughty, but that’s sort of the point.
He’s experienced, his heated hazel eyes promising sinful skills in seduction, and I want him to teach me all he knows.
Lesson by lesson.
Night after night.
He says he won’t allow me in his bed … but I wonder what it would take to get him to play in mine a bit?
OMG!😱 I freaking loved this story. 🥰 This is just the kind of story that is absolutely why I have one of the fastest one-click clicker fingers in the south. If Meagan Brandy writes I can almost guaran-damn-tee that It for sure is gonna be my jam. Crew and Davis just DID IT FOR ME! Off the charts explosive of course, but this kept just throwing my feels in a whirlwind. I wasn’t expecting that. I’m so used to the arrogant alpha holes in MB’s books that the broken bad boy trying to overcome the past really put a hurtin’ on this gal’s ticker. He melted me, made me swoon, made me pant. Everything about him just worked for me.
Davis was as sweet as candy and I loved how she felt about Crew. She was quirky and funny. 💗 Beyond beautiful both inside and out but with this innocence and radiance ☀️that people are drawn to. She truly had no clue of the attention she captured from the men around her. Probably partly because as long as she could remember she could only see one and one only and that was, Crew Taylor. After he left three years ago with no contact she decided that she had a issue that needed taken care of and he was the one she needed to take care of it. She just needed to convince him to help her out. Armed with all the pros and cons, can she get this grumpy new Crew to give in to her reasoning?
It was emotional, swoony, forbidden, hot, angsty, and unexpected. You can’t help but to fall in love with this couple. The banter, their history, the entire journey. Discovering all the twists and truth bombs, “kindle chuckin’ in a second of pure frustration” times, lip biting moments of angst. Plus a fantastic cast of secondary characters that I adore beyond measure. Here are just a few of the tasty morsels this genre smorgasbord will be bringing your way. 🍪🍭🍩🍬🍫
🔥Forbidden/ Childhood Foster brother
🖤Older Brother’s ex Best Friend
🥵Possessive AF Hero
🍭Twists and Surprises
The Deal Dilemma is a treat you do not want to miss. FIVE ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Crew and Davis together FOREVER Stars!
Y’ALL OMG!! 🙀 Where has Sara Cate been all my life and why in the diddly dang am I just now reading her?!🤷🏼♀️ Obviously this is something I plan to rectify ASAP. Not to worry. I have every intention of knocking her entire backlog out because I am absolutely NOT okay with the lingering feeling of FOMO if I don’t devour her whole dadgum lucious list. I will get on this really soon… well as soon as I get through beating my own fanny 👋🏻 for ignoring my shameless draws to her covers that I have been ogling for a minute. I mean HAVE YOU SEEN 👀 HER GORGEOUS COVERS? I have always noticed her covers and thought to myself “ I need to check her out.”
Okay, I’m gonna stop my depression over the fact that I hadn’t before now and focus on what’s really important. That I have jumped on the Sara Cate boat NOW and I am NOT getting off…err, Well actually that’s not entirely true. 😏 IYKYK
But really with this one book she has absolutely solidified her place as a one-click author for me. And everything about Mercy sums up exactly why that is!!
Oh help me Rhonda!🧨 LAWD UH MERCY,🧨 ‘ cuse me while I pant for Beau Grant. 🥵 Maggie and Beau’s story is an amazingly delicious reverse age gap/ best friend’s son/ domme, super steamy romance. 🔥 A journey about self discovery, personal growth and becoming secure in your own wants and needs, and finding your perfect person to discover all those with. Both had things they too had overcome but were tired of being defined by their pasts. I don’t think either could have possibly imagined the strength they would find in being around each other.
This book is overwhelmingly hot. I am absolutely a sucker for a good reverse age gap but Author Sara Cate kicked this up a notch by making her discover that underneath the phenomenally successful boss babe she was lurking a sleek and smexy Domme just waiting to be let loose on a willing submissive… But what happens when that waiting and willing sub turns out to be Beau Grant? The devastatingly handsome twenty-two year old son of her best friend and business partner, Emerson Grant. Not gonna give anything away. JUST READ THIS BOOK!

Meet Sara Cate
<p class=”MsoNormal” style=”margin: 0in;
Let’s skip the boring About the Author bit where I tell you how I’m a USA Today bestselling author who lives in Arizona with her kids, husband, and dog and enjoys baking in my free time. Boring.
Instead, I’d like you to know I strive to be a taboo and forbidden romance author who dares to tell stories with heart-wrenching plot and toe-curling heat.
My passion in life is to normalize a reading experience that pushes boundaries and empowers women to own their sexuality. Things that trigger my soapbox rants are discrediting the romance industry or belittling its readers by calling it “trash.” You’ve been warned. I could quite literally go on for days.
I like to take risks and write from the heart. And I want nothing more than to be an author readers trust to deliver books that are steamy AF but with a strong storyline and well-rounded characters.
What is The Sara Cate Experience?
The Sara Cate Experience means being pulled into a story and escaping reality a little bit for romances that are as emotional as they are arousing. The feelings are strong and the steam is scorching. There is never one without the other because when sex and love come together, it’s fireworks.

HOLY MIND CLICKETY- CLUCK MY FRIENDS!! This amazingly unforgettable story has got me so twisted and turned inside out. I legit had to sit back a while and just process my feelings on this one. Honestly, I’m still processing, still heavily feeling and quite tender and emotional still. This story was phenomenally incredible. I’m getting choked up because It was just truly remarkable. A brave and daring and non-traditional take on a dark and thrilling romance. Addicted from the first page this story is both chilling and eerie, but also emotional, original, steamy. A book that Is not soon to leave my head or the reeling it has my mind in, so trying to wrap my head around exactly how I am feeling so that I could even begin to convey this to others has been quite the chore, because the thing is… You know what they say about assuming?! Lol But alas, I went into this book assuming I was getting a certain type of story and to be honest, this was anything BUT the assumptions I had set up in my own head going in. ( To me this turned out to be a good thing)
Now without giving any spoilers away, let me just tell you what I did to myself here. Based on blurb alone here I jumped in thinking, m’kay so this is probably some type of prison pen pal love story. This is my first book by this author, but I have heard great things and she’s been on my TBR for awhile. So when this opportunity presented itself I scooped up the chance to read this sucker, and dove right in when the ARC appeared.
It certainly didn’t take long before I realized this book had this whole dark and eerie tone to it. BTW, I was absolutely here for it too! I was like yeah this is going to be more mysterious/suspenseful, probably some thriller action. I was excited to see how the dark romance was going to tie in. But as soon as the story got going I was just entranced y’all. I am talking about smokin’ hot scenes. Like hotter than a big ‘ol pan of biscuits and gravy right off the stove. The dirty talkin’, oh my word, the dirty talkin’. Put a fork in me because I was done. I mean our couple were just EVERYTHING I wanted them to be.
This story takes you on a journey and when you feel like you might be getting a grip on some of what’s going on, your world will be shattered, you will realize nothing is what It seemed and It’s better to just roll with the waves, instead of trying to swim against the current.
Now here is where reviews are mixed… Either you are happy with what the author did here, or it seems readers just can’t. ME, I happened to have absolutely LOVED what this author did with this book. When I started feeling like “ no, way.” “No you aren’t girl.” “You are, aren’t you?” I didn’t know how I felt about that, but when the book was all done. I sat back, with tears in my eyes, and all I could think was WOW! BRAVO! While this wasn’t what I went into this book expecting this to be, I was absolutely blown away by this story. By this author’s writing. Her ability to sweep me into this story. I went through all the emotions a person can feel while reading this story and am still after. Now, let’s talk about that ending. I know reference to a HEA has been mentioned. Does this story have a HEA? Well, no. Not in the traditional romance genre HEA. But In my opinion and for me, yes absolutely. I felt that the ending for me was as HEA. Without giving any spoilers for this book, these characters, and their journey, I think their ending is as happy an ever after as I hope mine would be in the same situation.

It’s raining as my husband’s casket is lowered into the hole in the ground. Raining hard, as if the sky itself is about to rip in half like my heart has. I stand motionless under an umbrella with the other mourners, listening to the priest drone on about resurrection and glory, blessings and suffering, redemption and the holy love of God. So many words, and all so meaningless. Everything is meaningless. There’s a Michael-shaped hole in my chest, and nothing matters anymore. That must be why I feel so numb. I’m empty. Grief has blown me apart, scattering my bones into a desert wasteland where they’ll bake in silence under a merciless sun for a thousand years. A woman behind me quietly weeps into her handkerchief. Sharon? Karen? A colleague of Michael’s who I met at a long-ago faculty party. One of those awful holiday work parties in a school auditorium where they serve cheap wine in plastic cups and people stand around making awkward small talk until they’re drunk enough to say what they really think about each other. Sharon or Karen behind me told Michael he was a prick at that party. I can’t remember why, but that’s probably why she’s crying now. When someone dies, you start counting all the ways you failed them. The priest makes the sign of the cross over his chest. He closes his Bible and steps back. I walk slowly forward, bend down to grasp a handful of soil from the pile to one side, then toss it onto the closed casket. The wet clump of dirt makes an ugly hollow sound when it lands on the gray lid of the coffin, an uncaring splat of finality. Then it slides off, leaving a smear of brown behind like a shit stain. Abruptly, I’m shaking with anger. I taste ashes and bitterness in my mouth. What a stupid ritual this is. Why do we even bother? It’s not like the dead can see us mourning them. They’re gone. A sudden gust of cold wind rattles the leaves in the trees. I turn and walk away through the rain, not looking back when someone softly sobs my name. I need to be alone with my grief. I’m not one of those people who likes to commiserate over a tragedy. Especially when the tragedy is my own. When I open the front door of the house, it takes a moment for me to register that I’m home. I have no recollection of the drive from the gravesite to here, though the blank spot in time doesn’t surprise me. Since the accident, I’ve been in a fog. It’s as if my brain is blanketed in thick clouds. I kick off my shoes and leave them under the console table in the foyer. Tossing my wool coat onto the back of a kitchen chair, I head to the fridge. I open the door and stand looking inside as rain drums against the windowpanes and I try to convince myself I’m hungry. I’m not. I know I should eat to keep my strength up, but I have no appetite for anything. I let the door swing shut and press my fingers against my throbbing temples. When I turn around, I notice the envelope on the table next to the fruit bowl. It sits by itself, a white rectangle with neat handwriting and a stamp that reads “LOVE” in red letters. I know for a fact it wasn’t there when I left. My first thought is that Fiona must’ve brought in the mail. Then I remember she cleans the house on Mondays. Today’s Sunday. So how did it get there? As I cross to the table and pick up the letter, a rumble of thunder rattles the windows. A sudden gust of wind whistles through the trees outside. The eerie feeling intensifies when I read the return address. Washington State Penitentiary. Frowning, I tear open the edge of the envelope and pull out the single sheet of white unlined paper inside. I unfold it and read aloud. “I’ll wait forever if I have to.” That’s it. There’s nothing else, except a signature scratched below the words. Dante. I flip the page over, but it’s blank on the other side. For a fleeting moment, I think the letter must be intended for Michael. That idea gets tossed aside when I realize it’s addressed to me. That’s my name right there on the front of the envelope, printed in neat block letters with blue pen. This Dante person, whoever he is, meant for me to receive this. But why? And what is he waiting for? Unsettled, I fold the letter into thirds, stuff it back into the envelope, and drop it on the table. Then I make sure all the doors and windows are locked. I draw the drapes and blinds against the wet gray afternoon, pour myself a glass of wine, then sit at the kitchen table, staring at the envelope with a strange feeling of foreboding. A feeling that something’s coming. And that whatever it is, it isn’t good.

Everything they thought they knew is about to change.
In Chaos We Reign, an all-consuming dark romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Amo Jones is out now!
I was the trick that they could never play. She was the greatest game of all…
There was elegance that comes from being carved from the ashes of all the darkness that surrounds you in the world. You start as dust, and you end as dust. At least that’s what I always thought. Crowned Princess Mayhem all my life became old fast, and I found myself forging my iron crown with the blood of our enemies.
To The Brothers of Kiznitch, I was nothing but a little brat that always got my way. I was the sister none of them asked for, but they’d find themselves needing. He was no different. Loving Keaton Cicero was never going to be easy. There was evil within him that would never be accepted.
They thought their over-protectiveness had kept me safe all these years, but they were wrong. Everything they thought they knew, was about to burn around them. I wasn’t someone who needed protecting…
In Chaos We Reign can be read as a stand-alone, but it is recommended to read In Silence She Screams first to better understand some story points.
FABULOUSLY FLOORED!! 🤯 That is just one of the ways to describe how I’m feeling. This book, the ending to this unforgettably magnificent series has got me feeling all kinds of ways. I have always been one who would never turn down an Amo Jones book, but y’all, Y’ALL!! 🏻 I am blown away by the brilliance and talent this author poured out on the pages of In Chaos We Reign. Her ability to take me into this dark and ominous world she’s created. The eerie feelings of mystery, all the lies, and tons of secret twists and turns will keep you entranced and on the edge of your seat. 🙀This tale is deliciously dark and deviantly dirty. A twisted, gritty and gruesome tale, totally fitting for our Ice Princess, Cartier and her forbidden beau, Keaton. Their story as unique and tragically twisted as those before them is one of my favorites. The deep depravity and hidden lies behind these two. But the way they are when its just the two of them. OMG! I am not gonna give away anything more than that.
Amo concludes her Midnight Mayhem world in the way only she can. I do wish I had time to refresh my memories and reread all the other three books in the series again before reading ICWR. I think it would have made some things a bit clearer. I had to do some mind searching. lol Unpredictable, mesmerizing, explosive, alluring, and addictive! I will never forget this series. It is officially one of my all time favorites and one I will reread over and over again. I will warn you It is at times gruesome and graphic. If you have triggers I would recommend checking trigger warnings but If you are like me just jump right in and ENJOY!! All the stars for this phenomenally awesome series.⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨
Keep reading for a look inside In Chaos We Reign!
Chapter One Cartier Sixteen years old I remember the first time I realized my brother was crazy. I was twelve years old, and I watched him rip the meat off a man’s bones after he kidnapped me and locked me in an abandoned house to play dress-up. The man was a stranger, and even though our family business was risky, it had no connection with Midnight Mayhem or Kiznitch. Yet my glorious brother tore him to pieces with his bare hands and didn’t blink once. Tonight is just like then, only worse. Worse because this is someone I know, and it’s someone who tried to hurt me. Doors slam closed outside, and I stop pouring the cashmere pink bubbles into my bath. Reaching for my phone on the counter, I open Spotify and hit play on “OT” by Niykee Heaton before dipping my toe into the warm water. Bubbles spill onto the dark veined marble floors as I sink deeper beneath the water, closing my eyes in an attempt at scrubbing the night away. I don’t want Kyrin to hear me cry because I know it will only make him worse. I’ve handled this school since my parents dumped me in it when Kyrin threw a fit to keep me away from Mayhem, and I will continue to handle it when he goes back on the road. Right now, I need peace. I need to feel nothing. See nothing. Hear nothing. They say drowning is the most peaceful death, I can imagine why. After being suffocated from oxygen for minutes, you welcome the feeling of numbness. Like now. Void. Stuck between a realm of life and death, I could float and hold my breath until I simply… die. A hand is around my throat, pulling me out of my haze and I swipe water from my face angrily when I resurface. “What the fuck!” As soon as my eyes open, they land on Keaton, one of the four Brothers of Kiznitch. He and my brother have been inseparable since they were born—they all are—but Keaton isn’t like the rest of them. He is simply… different. My mouth closes as I take in his clothes. Blotches of blood litter his designer jeans, and when I finally look up at his face, I find mud and more blood all over his cheek and shirt. The Brothers of Kiznitch have all been my extended brothers, all of them except Keaton. He is nothing like a brother to me, and that’s largely because he has never treated me the same way the other Brothers have. He doesn’t seem pissed about my presence, but not that fond of it either. He has always just existed. For a long time anyway. But I don’t know if I’d call what we share a normal friendship. My stomach always twists anytime I catch him staring, and it’s become more frequent the older I get, but that doesn’t change the fact that we both fight. Fight probably more than any of the other brothers, Kyrin not included. “What the fuck, Keaton?” I glare up at him while leaning back against the curve of the bath, flicking my toe against the faucet to turn the hot water back on. I see him dip to a kneeling position out of the corner of my eye, when his fingers curl around my chin, forcing my face to his. I hold my breath when his eyes settle on mine. Keaton is the scariest of all The Brothers—to everyone but me. Darkness hovers over him everywhere he goes, and no matter what he does, he’ll never be rid of it. Torment swims beneath the surface of his god-like features, and it has always bothered me that I can never take it away. No one can. “Was there anyone else involved?” His voice is low enough to be a warning. I find myself losing my train of thought when I trace the edges of his naturally swollen lips. “No,” I whisper, only it comes out broken from the saliva forming in my throat. He stands back to his full height and kicks off his boots, tugging his shirt over his head from the back and throwing it onto a pile in the corner. “Keaton…” I warn. “If Kyrin—” “—don’t really give a fuck right now, Tigger.” I close my eyes and lean against the edge of the bath, listening as the clink of his belt falls to the floor before a long stretch of silence drifts between us. Just when I think he’s not going to do what he’s going to do, I feel his leg brush mine as he lowers himself into the bath opposite me. Keaton and I have kept each other at a distance, and most of the time I think I’m imagining the things I do. The long stares, brushes of hands, lingering touches. We fight as hard as we clearly care about one another, but it has always been clear. The lines have never been blurred. Until now.

Is there anything better than a yummy second chance romance?! How about a delicious slow burn with a side of groveling hero and several good ‘ol helpings of hate to love/angst. ALL.OF.THAT and more is what you are in for with Garnet Flats. So good y’all. I have loved every single book so far in the Eden’s series and frankly couldn’t wait for Talia’s turn after the glimpses we’ve had of her in the previous books. Author Devney Perry did not disappoint with Talia and Foster’s heart wrenching journey back together after seven years apart and a lot of bitterness, hurt, lies, and misunderstandings.
Garnet Flats is an emotionally gripping tale about a young woman finding her forever person only to have him marry her closest friend instead. That life changing, unforgettable kind of love that when lost you never fully recover from. Oh the devastation your first true broken heart leaves you with, I’m sure most of us remember it well. I know I do. I dove right into this unique twist on the, left me for my best friend trope, and devoured every word of this within a day, as it brought me right back into my feels of first loves, first heartbreaks, and lessons in forgiveness in relationships.
Talia Eden loved her college sweetheart Foster more than anything. She saw her entire future with him. Then in a devastating blow he shocked her by marrying her best friend and roommate. Seven years later he shows up freshly divorced and ready to make amends and win her back. But if he thinks finally telling her why he did what he did will just easily wipe the slate clean, he is in for a rude awakening. Talia is still hurt, and quite frankly straddling that thin line between love and hate.
When Foster, a UFC fighter ( um holy hotness people 🔥🤤) shows back up in Quincey determined to finally tell the only woman who’s ever truly held his heart why he really broke hers all those years ago he knows it’s not going to be easy peasy. Getting Talia back may be the hardest fight he’s ever taken on. But he’s ready, heart in hand, to jump into the ring and fight it out until he emerges the victor. He’s not looking for a belt, nor a title. He only wants her. He knew whatever anger she threw his way was absolutely his fault and he was ready to own it. He wanted to lay it all out there on the line, while also helping her to remember just how good it used to be between them. He knows he still loves her, and he’s sure hoping she feels the same. Well anger isn’t the only thing causing the heat to rise between these two.
Everything about Talia and Foster had me hooked from the very beginning. From being back in Quincey, to scenes with Eden’s from the past books in the series. Which is awesome because I am never going to want to part with this series. I will go back for a total series reread at some point for sure. This book broke my heart just as much as it healed it. This standalone with interconnecting characters told in alternating dual POV’s is a great addition to the series. You can start with Garnet Flats or start at the beginning with Juniper Hill today. I already can’t wait for the next book, Jasper Vale.

OH MY WORD! I love a good ‘ol heart melting single dad romance. Especially if he happens to be the doting daddy of a little girl. 💕 Like for real. I’m legit a goner for a girl dad. 🥺 I’m sure it probably has to do with the fact that I was the oldest of three girls raised by a single dad, and a through and through Daddy’s girl until the day he died, so I was instantly drawn into everything about this story.
Ford Dalton, his adorable daughter Everly, and her amazingly wonderful new nanny, Sydney’s story is a different spin on the single dad/nanny trope. It delivers a fresh new engaging storyline, loveable and emotion evoking characters, picturesque settings, plenty of heart, heat and steamy goodness. Fans of single dad/nanny romance, forced proximity, age-gap, billionaire romance, or even boss/employee this will fit the bill for all of you.
Ford Dalton is EVERYTHING!🥰 He is sexy, smart, and successful. He’s got a big heart and a big um… 🥵 He is a swoony, charming, dirty talking tall drink of water. He is an amazingly devoted single father who’s entire world is wrapped around his little girl. It has always just been the two of them, other than a little help with Everly from his mom and cousin Hannah. He’s truly a family man through and through and he really hasn’t felt like he was missing out on anything… Until he meets Sydney. Although it seems as though she just might be the one to finally change his mind on his hesitation to relationships. When he finds out that she is the top contender in the running for the nanny position for his daughter, Ford draws the line. Either they move forward and see where their relationship can go or they stop and Syd proceeds as Everly’s nanny. There really is only one choice, the most important person of all has to be the priority.
Sydney is the BEST!😘 She is young and vibrant. Beautiful, patient and lots of fun to be around. She radiates warmth and love and has the biggest and most unselfish heart. She is young and still working out what she wants her path in life to look like. But at the same time she is able to be mature for her age but also simultaneously youthful and brings an energy that makes those around her happy. She naturally does sweet gestures and things for people to show how much she cares for them. You can’t help but love her character and almost forget she’s a character and not my friend IRL.
The Single Dad is the third standalone in the Dalton Brothers series. You don’t have to have read the others but they are good books and have crossover characters from the previous books so If you have the time I would recommend checking them out. Ford has come along and pushed his two brothers right on out and became my favorite Dalton brother. FOR SURE. This entire book had me captivated. Between the heart melting daddy/daughter moments, the effervescent and unforgettable Everly filled ones, the charming moments, the steamy moments, the fun, flirty, and fantastically witty banter filled moments.
I just couldn’t get enough. I hung on every word. From the banging first night to the twist later on, all the way to the perfect HEA. It’s a YES🤩 from Me! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨
