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.

This is a good follow up to book one, low on angst and high on feels albeit a bit predictable.
This book essentially picks up where book one left off so it’s safe to say it’s not a standalone. Brady and Eric are pretty enamored with each other right away. Brady is understandably gun shy due to his disorder, dyslexia, lack of self-esteem and anxiety. They both have pretty bad track records with relationships but their chemistry if off the charts, so they don’t really hold back when they get together. Eric bumbles a little trying to make sure he gets things right with Brady and they’re pretty adorable together. After the initial resistance from Brady, their relationship develops quickly…things just seem to fall into place for them.
While Sean and Ash are probably still my favorite, I do like Brady and Eric together. We meet a new character that is intriguing and going to be in book three…apparently as Leo’s love interest. That is definitely an interesting match-up that I’m excited to see!
