With four girls, single dad Ryan Withers has his hands too full to look for romance. He’s not complaining—he loves his daughter and the three nieces he adopted when their parents died, and he would do anything for them. He’s caught off guard when his mother and daughter decide to play matchmaker.
Alex Bernot works in disaster relief, his job taking him all over the world, helping others, for extended periods of time. He’s staying with his aunt while he’s home, and she sets him up on a blind date. Finding a special someone isn’t really on his mind, but he goes to make his aunt happy.
Ryan and Alex enjoy each other’s company more than either of them expected, and they soon make a second date. Their lives are complicated, though, in very different ways, and soon family needs and their jobs conspire to pull them apart. They’ll need to figure out how to work through the things keeping them apart, but first they’ll have to decide if they even want to….
Review: The book has been reviewed previously
This is one of the rare times (for me) that the book compelled me to stick with the narration.
The narrator (Steve Balderson – new to me) wasn’t bad, but there were times when he just sounded flat or emotionless, even during the sex scenes. After a while I got used to his speech pattern, (so it wasn’t a total fail), but the story really deserved a bit more animation for the MCs. Surprisingly, he did a great job with the kids, especially Rosie. He captured her so well, especially when she got upset with Alex leaving. She was adorable.
I really liked the story, and while the narration didn’t add much, it is still a nice way to enjoy the story.
4 stars out of 5 for the story
