The Family Man
Oh what a sweet story – and to see a single parent struggling with dating and relationships from a different perspective was wonderful. Kelly Eadon has set a sweet and heartwarming story in this little town. Both Beth and Griffin are instantly attracted and everything feels just ‘right’ so the quick connection didn’t bother me overmuch.
Griffin is readjusting and realigning his life from the hard party-boy, and for a very good reason. May is adorable and full of life, cuddles and happy to be Daddy’s Little Girl. From the cuddles and bedtime stories to small moments where she steals his heart, Griffin can’t help but find new joy every day.
Beth is starting over with 3 part time jobs, a passion for baking sweet treats and a massive crush on Griffin. She’s got a quirky and optimistic view of life, and one that is just perfectly in tune with the very young May. But, dating and relationships with a child in the mix always require careful thought, and both Beth and Griffin have their own moments of angst.
A quick connection with plenty of spice do highlight this story, and there are moments of strong language, although never in front of the kiddo. Even as the story was fast-paced, and there was a bit of insta-love, it worked on all levels: I felt their connection, and the care they took with the kiddo. I did wish for more story, as I whipped through this in only a few hours, never a bad thing for a book. Great for fans of romance who want something just a bit different.

About the Book:
TEMPTATION NEVER TASTED SO SWEET...
When life hands lemons to Beth Beverley, she makes mouthwatering lemon squares. Mostly because they're coveted by the sexy single dad who owns Belmont's most popular coffee shop. But that's where her crush on Griffin has to end. Her sweet treats are selling like crazy cakes in his shop, and she doesn't mix business with pleasure. Too bad his sinful smile has her flirting with the idea of forever.
Griffin Hall definitely needs to keep his eyes--and his hands--off Beth. Since he's traded in late-night gigs and partying for bedtime stories with his little girl in his arms, he doesn't have time for anything else. So why does Beth's big heart and easy way with his daughter make him finally feel alive again? But there's a little secret Beth doesn't know, something he can't bear to tell her . . .
