Blurb: Bobby Gagnon came back to Cedarwood in the hopes of starting over. He’s got his kids and his accounting business, but he wants more. One look at the hot guy sharing the running trail with him is enough to stoke Bobby’s fire. He wants to hook up with the sexy runner, but he doesn’t even know the guy’s name. Will the man even want to be with a single father?
Remy Bard never considered himself a kid person or parent material. He’s happy with his job at the Cedarwood Tribune, but it’s not enough. Something’s always been missing in his life. He keeps seeing the same guy at the park—tall, dark, handsome and hot as hell in those running shorts. Although he’s shy, Remy isn’t about to let this guy get away without at least one night together.
These opposites certainly attract, but will their differences be enough to keep them apart or will they find a way to come together in Cedarwood?
Review: Each book in the Single Father’s Society collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
Bobby and his two kids move back to his home town. After a disaster of a relationship goes downhill he decides he wants more for his family. He decides to open up his own accounting business and to be closer to his parents. He just wasn’t sure about starting over with a new guy in his life. That is until he catches his eye on one sexy runner named Remy.
Remy is a sweet journalist who has about the same bad taste as Bobby. However he wasn’t into sports and didn’t really want kids. Then he sees Remy and realizes that might just change. To make matters a bit hard, the coalition is still causing trouble for them all. They must stand together to prove that well you are just going to have to read the book.
The chemistry between these two guys is off the charts, but there are some challenges that these guys and most the others have to get through. Remy is definitely low on self-esteem and he pushes his issues into focus, but Bobby seems to have something similar to go through. His two kids are amazing.
Now the story is slow paced, but the romance is the opposite. It is moving right ahead even if there are a few road bumps to go around. Now not having read the rest of the books in quite awhile, this story just didn’t seem to really need them to connect with the characters. It brings the others into it, but in truth the story could stand alone. There are a lot of good lessons that this story comes with.
Now for the bad news, this story really is similar to the others in the story itself. The only change is characters and such. They hop in to bed, so to speak and then all of a sudden they are a couple. The kids, as great as they are, just seem to be moving just as fast as they are. However the author has made the story turn out pretty good. It just the pace of the story itself and the pace of the characters is a bit strange. It did take awhile to actually get into the story and it didn’t keep my attention like it should have. Parts seemed to just be thrown into it but overall it is still an enjoyable story to read.
I would definitely recommend it and the previous books.
