From the New York Times bestselling author of the Wedding Pact, Rose Gardner, and Maddie Baker series comes an irresistible romantic comedy where two single parents get a second chance at happy-ever-after.
First love is better the second time around.
Matt Osborn had no idea coaching his five-year-old nephew's soccer team would get him so much attention from the mothers-attention he doesn't want now that he's given up on love and having a family of his own. Yep, Matt's the last of his bachelor buddies, and plans on staying that way. That is, until he finds himself face-to-face with the woman who broke his heart.
Single mom Anna paused her life in England to help her father recover from an illness. She can't afford complications, and too-hot-for-his-own-good Matt Osborn-her almost former fiance is definitely a complication. He's a reminder of what might have been-or should have been. That irresistible pull between them isn't over. Not even close. But if she's not careful, she'll break both their hearts . . . again.
The last member of Swank's Bachelor Brotherhood goes down without a fight in a parenting-oriented second chance love story that leans heavily toward the insipid. Matt Osborn is raising his five-year-old nephew, Ethan, and coaching the peewee soccer team while Ethan's mother is in medical school. He's surprised to discover that Ethan's new best friend, Toby, is the son of Anna Robins, who refused Matt's marriage proposal years earlier. Matt and Anna feel an instant reconnection, but they tread carefully, as Anna is only visiting from London for a few weeks to help her convalescing father. She's prevented from making a more permanent move by her custody agreement with her absent ex-husband. Their story is full of warmth and humor, but it lacks sexual tension, and the series emphasis on bachelors falls down when no one in the cast expresses significant support for the idea of ongoing singlehood. Series fans may be disappointed.
Denise Grover-Swank has this old guy who prefers action thrillers reading romances. What else can I say; I was so hooked on her mysteries I just started reading her romance stories - this is my third. Ladies, you will love her stories. Guys, give them a try if for no more than a release from the tension of your normal reads.
Another good one!
I love this series and it’s precursor “The wedding pact”! The characters are unique and well written. Sometimes when you get into a series you (the reader) gets bored with an author’s MO in plot lines and THANKFULLY Denise grover Swank does fall into that hole! I love the erotic yoga granny who needs a filter anyway!?! Looking forward to your next book.
Love the story and the characters... only gave it a four because of a few spelling errors. If you liked the other books you will love this one.
