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….
Single dad and a blind date what could go wrong, nothing and that’s what I like about Sean Michael’s family stories. That and they make me smile. They are straight forward and from the heart, full of feels. There is chemistry between Ryan and Alex from the start. Which would naturally lead on to a second date with some hot sex, another thing Sean Michael writes very well. The sex scenes are not repetitive. I like it when there is variety in a story. I loved Alex’s easy relationship with the four girls, it felt so natural. They are adorable. From the oldest at fifteen playing at matchmaker to the youngest at five just being cute. Lovely story. Perfect escape from hectic Christmas prep.
