I’m a full-time single dad to three daughters and CFO at Cloverleigh Farms. I don’t have time to fall in love—I’m too busy trying to run a business, keep the red socks out of the white laundry, and get the damn pillowcases on without owing a dollar to the swear jar. Sure, Frannie Sawyer is beautiful and sweet, but she’s twenty-seven, the boss’s daughter, and my new part-time nanny—which means she’s completely off-limits. It’s bad enough I can’t stop fantasizing about her, what kind of jerk would I be if I acted on the impulse to kiss her? (Exactly the kind of jerk you’re thinking.) Actually, I’m worse than that—because I didn’t stop with a kiss, and now I can’t stay away. She makes me feel like myself again. She reminds me what it’s like to want something just for me. She’s everything I ever needed, but nothing I ever imagined. I’m a former Marine. I should have had the strength to resist her from the start. But I didn’t. And now I have to choose between the life I want and the life she deserves. Even if it means giving her up.

Have you ever read a book that from the very first page you had an immediate good feeling? Deep down you know that this one is going to have minimal drama, lovable characters, a splash of forbidden, and a feel good relatable storyline that makes you enjoy being in the moment. I couldn’t have asked for a better romantic story and I’m so glad that I took a chance on this one. 

Being a single dad is not the easiest thing in the world but being a single dad to three girls under the age of thirteen? Someone needs to hand this man a medal. From hair braiding, to ballet class, to arguments over who's turn it is to pick a movie, Mack has seen and done it all for his girls. His entire lives purpose is to support and be there for his kids and everything else is going to take a back seat. Unfortunately that includes his love life. With temptation brewing in the form of his nanny and boss's daughter, will Mack be able to indulge with the woman he’s wanted for over a year?

Frannie has always been sheltered throughout her entire childhood. Due to a scary heath condition, her parents has always treated her like she was made of glass and now that she’s a twenty seven year old woman, they still see her as breakable. Being the Nanny to three of most beautiful girls is one of the highlights of her life but having to see their Dad on a daily basis and not combust? Well that’s an everyday miracle that is quickly starting to lose it’s power. What will happen when these two decide to give in for one night only? 

I really loved the bond that Mack had with each of his daughters and it showed just how much he cared for all of them. He was protective, loving, vulnerable and hilariously animated. I couldn’t get enough of those girls and I loved that their personalities were strong forces in this story. It wasn’t easy at times and there was certainly a lot of screw ups, but every moment was a learning experience and they took it in stride. 

If you love a hot single dad romance , then I highly recommend this one.


I was holding my breath. I wasn’t even sure why, but it was something about the way Mack was looking at me. And the tension in his body—the taut muscles in his neck. The grip of his fingers on the edge of the counter. The set of his jaw. It gave the impression of restraint. Like he was holding himself back. Something unfamiliar hummed in the air between us. I could feel it—he wanted me the way I wanted him. No wonder I couldn’t breathe. Then he cleared his throat and turned away from me, cutting off the current. “Sure. Everybody needs to make mistakes now and then.” I’d forgotten I’d even asked the question. He turned the sink on, rinsed his dishes, and placed them in the dishwasher. I stood there staring at his muscular back, at the width of his shoulders, at the snug fit of his jeans on his butt. If I were his and he were mine, I’d go over and wrap my arms around his waist, press my cheek to his back. Then he’d turn around, winding his arms around me. He’d lower his lips to mine, and— “I should get you home,” he said, interrupting my fantasy. “Want to grab your coat?” “Sure.” But I didn’t really want to leave. I wanted to stay in this warm, chaotic house with him and the girls. Pretend I belonged here. Pretend I belonged to him.
