Single Dads Series
When the world labels a man and judges them blindly, is it possible to ever find love?
Firefighter Eric is on the front line, battling the threat of nature’s destruction in the California grasslands alongside his CalFire team. Focused and calm, even in the direst of situations, he has a strong affection for his fire truck, loves his career, and has best friends he can rely on. All he needs now is love, but that seems to be impossible to find. At his friend’s wedding. Eric falls in lust at first sight with the shy, slim and sexy Brady, even if Brady isn’t the type of guy he usually goes for. What Eric longs for is an equal in his bed, not a smaller guy who might want Eric to role-play big strong firefighter every time they have sex. He wants to find someone he can be vulnerable with, someone who will love him for his soft heart and quiet ways.
Brady’s life plans grind to a halt when his niece and nephew lose their parents in a tragic accident, and he becomes a dad overnight. His Developmental Coordination Disorder rules his life, but he fights both DCD and the fears that chase him every day, to give Maddie and Lucas a home. Agreeing to go to a friend’s wedding is a decision he regrets long before he even gets there. But, he refuses to give in to his fear, even if he might do something that makes him a target for people’s comments and laughter. Meeting Eric, a huge man with a gentle voice and a flair for chivalry, he falls hard. Now, if only he can let himself get past his panic that Eric would never want someone like him, then maybe he could fall in love for real.
Second book in the “Single Dads” series written by RJ Scott : it can be read as a standalone (I haven’t read book 1). One just needs to know that 3 single men, Sean, Eric and Leo, share a house and I guess that each one is to meet his partner. In Book 1, it was Sean falling in love with Ash and his little daughter, Mia. Book 2 starts with Sean and Ash’s wedding and Eric is being asked to look after Brady, a friend of Ash.
Eric is a firefighter, a big softy and longs for, as the blurb says, someone who will love him for his soft heart and quiet ways.
Brady is with DCD and also the adopting father of his 2 nephews. Yes, he’s plagued with fear but does everything he can to overcome them and it’s in this spirit that he opens his door to let Eric in and into his life, with the right amount of fierceness that wins him Eric.
If you’re looking for a sweet romance, low on angst and with endearing characters and a few sexy times, this is it.
Sometimes, I just want to read a mellow romance full of nice feels relaxing me and making me smile while witnessing the MCs supporting each other and it delivered. And I’m easily won over when it involves a parent doing his best to raise kids, with ups and downs but loving bonds.
My sentimental side has been nicely fed.
