From New York Times bestselling author K. Bromberg comes a new, sexy standalone about taking chances and finding love when it’s least expected. Or wanted.
This whole contest was supposed to be easy. I know, I know. Famous last words.
It’s a long story, but I messed up at work. Big time. To earn back the trust of my boss, I promised to save one of our magazines. Yep. That Hot Dad contest you’ve seen advertised all over the place was my idea. And if I’m successful, if I’m able to increase our online readership, then I get a shot at my dream job.
But the one thing I never expected to happen, happened: Contestant number ten, Grayson Malone. Hello, Mr. Difficult. And did I mention sexy as hell?
Unfortunately he knows me. The old me, anyway. And while we might be older now, I remind him of before. Of the woman who broke his heart, who hardened him, and who left him alone to raise the cutest little boy I’ve ever seen.
But I don’t want a relationship. And I definitely don’t fall for single dads with baggage. Even ones with chiseled abs and killer smiles.
But he got to me. They got to me. Him and his son and their messy, crazy life. But I got to him too. I see the stolen glances. I feel the walls he built start to crumble. I recognize that there’s an unexpected beauty to the chaos in his life.
And now that the contest is about to end, we’re left to decide whether the last six months were just fun or if what we have is worth risking it all?

Oh my gracious! First of all I would like to say that I am in love with Luke Malone. He is the sweetest 8 year old boy. The secondary characters were great and added to the story which made the store more than one demential. The push and pull between Grayson and Sydney was just right and not over the top annoying. Reading the blurb I didn’t think that I would like Sydney but I was so wrong. I loved her. She was so caring and just wanted to have Grayson as well as her father just see her for who she was and not who they thought she was. This his my first book by the author and I will definitely be reading more of her work. Until next time y’all happy reading.
This was All Me.
I’ve loved and devoured every book by this author. I love them and have since day one. This story was well written as well but I skipped the entire middle. Why you might ask if I like her so much did I do this? A simple personal belief and preference. If you are offended by the use of GD on repeat, this is not the book for you. If that doesn’t bother you, you will love this. I don’t mind language as a general rule but the overuse of that one word, I just couldn’t do it. It’s a personal belief but that’s ME.
I devoured it. I mean, couldn’t stop reading it!
Welllll. I flipping loved this book.
I loved all the Malone brothers. (What’s not to love right!?)
This book is about Grayson, he has a precious son Luke who is 7-8 years old. Love that kid. Toooo sweet for words.
Grayson was burned by Luke’s mom in such a way he no longer desires to have a female in his or Luke’s life long term. He’s a great guy and doesn’t treat women poorly. Ha just doesn’t want the around his kid.
Enter Sidney. Previous wealthy resident of their town. They went to high school together. And she was tight with the dreadful woman who gave birth to Luke. So. She knocks on his door to get him in a hot dad contest that her magazine is running and he shuns her.
Eventually he agrees agrees. Their chemistry is off the chart.
If you are wanting a book you feel all the way from your tear ducts to your core. This. Is. It. It’s heartbreaking and heartwarming. Literally Ms Bromberg does not disappoint, per usual.
Plot is spot on. Development is great.
You will fall head over heels in love with these characters.
I highly recommend this!!!
