On the surface, I have it all—a career I adore, a loving family, the Nixon metabolism but not the Nixon ears, and a salary that supports my lavish taste in designer shoes, fine wine, and lacy lingerie…but I have no one to share it with.
Until the day I run into him—my one night stand from college with the cocky smile, let’s-get-out-of-here eyes, and dirty, dirty mouth.
Levi Brooks is six feet four inches of hot bearded fantasy. A sexy single dad with broad shoulders, strong hands, and a fantastically big…heart. (I mean, it’s massive. And generous. And it pumps so hard… um. Sorry. Lost my place.)
But he lives for his son, and he's keeping me at a distance because he thinks I deserve someone better—a man who can give me more time, more attention, more of himself. He doesn’t believe he could ever be enough.
But he's wrong.
I don't know how Melanie Harlow manages to write books with fictional characters that you wish you could know in real life. No matter which book you're reading, it seems that the characters are dealing with everyday trials and tribulations, but she can write in such a way that doesn't feel all angsty and full of drama. Another selling point of this book is that we're not subjected to "insta-love", Jillian and Levi already have a history, so that seems to make this book that much more realistic in terms of their relationship.
And oh goodness, the chemistry between these two is off the charts hot. Levi is one smooth dirty talker and I loved it. Even more sexy than his dirty thoughts and wickedly hot mouth is the fact that his son is the most important part of his life and he always puts his son's needs ahead of everything else in his life. I also liked that not only is Levi a single dad, he's the single dad to an autistic son. I was disheartened with Levi's feelings of being scared of disappointing the people in his life, and how that fear he held onto kept him from seeing how great of father he really is.
