REVIEW -SINGLE DAD NEXT DOOR by PENELOPE BLOOM
My Rating – 3.5 Stars
This was a quick read that will leave you wondering what will happen next. Reid is a single dad hanging on to his garage by a thread and then his ex wife’s best friend moves in next door. It was a very fast paced story that had you wanting to know what was going to happen next. Reid is a mechanic that spends his time shirtless working on cars but when Sandra moves in and has a hard time keeping her eyes on her side of the road things start to get interesting. Seeing him like that all the time and how he treated his son with such love and affection really got her motor going. Roaman his 5 year old son is such an adorable little guy and just couldn’t keep a secret! Always telling on his Dad to Sandra, making it hard for Reid to conceal how he feels. The things people will do and the lengths they will go to for love. Reid shows Sandra exactly that and before she can protest he’s already signed the papers so she can have her dream even if it means he has to give up his. Overall it was a good read that kept my attention and had my favorite a HEA! This story is great if you like insta-love, HOT single dads, steamy scenes, and drama!!
I will say that I was a little disappointed in that I thought it was a full length because it states it’s 300 pages but by the time you are done reading it’s a novella and there’s another story at the end of it!
My grandfather left me his business with one insane condition:
I need a wife and two kids. Too bad I’m a divorced single dad.
Cue my ex-wife’s best friend moving in next door.
And then mix in a few bad decisions.
What do you get? A complicated, sexy mess.
The list of reasons I should stay away from my neighbor is about as long as his… wrench. He’s a dirty mechanic, he’s a single dad, and he can’t seem to keep his shirt on for more than five minutes.
Did I mention his ex wife is my best friend? Yeah. Reid Riggins is absolutely, one hundred percent, the last person in the world I should get involved with. Even if he is heart-stoppingly gorgeous with strong, powerful hands that could rip my clothes off with ease.
Not that I’ve imagined that, of course.
The point is I don’t want anything to do with him. He can stay in his stupid garage with his stupidly cute son and hit things with wrenches all day. He can keep on wearing those blue jeans that fit him just right for all I care.
Except I may have told a white lie to my eccentric, rich parents. I may have told them I’m engaged to a wealthy businessman, and now they want to meet my fake fiance. Unfortunately, Reid might be the only guy who’s willing to play along.
No problem. It’s just for a few days. Just to get them off my back. What could go wrong?
**This is a full-length, standalone fake marriage romance. No cheating or cliffhangers, and as always, Happily Ever After guaranteed.
