The Family Man by Kelly Eadon REVIEW

The Family Man
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 . . .

Through reading this wonderful story, I really liked Beth. As a single mom myself, I didn't care for her disappointment in the beginning when she found out that Griffin was a dad. But, aside from that, she is a wonderful and charismatic woman who is so full of ambition and strength, it was inspiring. My only big complaint is that I wish I had gotten a little more of a backstory from both Beth and Griffin, a chance to know their characters a little more, before delving into their story as a loving and unexpected couple. It was a bit refreshing to read about a man who has become a single dad who falls for a woman since it seems to be typically the single mother who finds an amazing man willing to take on a family he has fallen for. This was my first read from Kelly Eadon, but it will definitely not be my last. This story does have adult content, I would not recommend younger readers; but I would recommend this book :)

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review
