Reeling from the painful rejection of a man he thought he loved, Asher is left holding the baby.
Ash wants a family, and is determined to continue with a surrogacy he’d begun with his ex. Bringing baby Mia home, he vows that he will be the best father he can be. Nothing in this world matters more to him than caring for his daughter, not even accidentally falling in lust with the doctor next door. Challenged by his growing attraction to Sean, and confronted by painful memories of his family, Ash has to learn that love is all that matters.
When ER doctor Sean moves in with his friends next door to sexy single father Ash, he falls so quickly it takes his breath away. The sex they have is hot, but Ash is adamant his heart is too full with love for his daughter to let anyone else in. Why is Sean the only one who sees how scared Ash is, and how can he prove to his new lover that he desperately wants the three of them to become a family?
This was … hard to review.
On the one hand it was a relatively low angst story about a man finding family. That includes trusting himself as a new father and finding a loving partner in a nearby neighbor.
The romance, however, was very lack luster and most of the story is really about becoming a new dad.
It’s not bad that it’s about becoming a dad – but if you’re after a hot romance, this ain’t it.
It’s sweet and the baby stuff is cute but I do wish it’d had more about the budding relationship with our MCs.
Sean Crisden does a lovely job with the narration and he kept me engaged.
