My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Let me first say that I’ve really enjoyed this series from the start but Garrett’s story is by far my favorite! The cover is AWESOME and the model stuck in my head as I was reading…he absolutely fit Garrett’s character in my mind. I loved Charlie and Garrett! They fit perfectly together…Charlie was the light to Garrett’s dark and their saucy banter and hot chemistry kept the book from feeling too dark or broody. It seemed like Charlie was always chasing Garrett but rather than feeling that she was weak and inadequate, I felt like she was secure in herself and brave to keep pursuing the love of her life. She never gave up on Garrett and that took a lot of strength. Garrett was lonely and melancholy but I could also tell how much he yearned for Charlie and the happiness she brought him. It was interesting watching the push and pull between them. There’s not really a whole lot of drama or angst in this story but the witty writing, the fast pace, the wonderfully charming characters and the glimpses into the lives of the secondary characters put this one on my faves list! Told from dual POVs with a happy ending. I received, read and voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

Hey all, Garrett here. I’m begrudgingly addressing you today because apparently Dane did this for his book and you all loved it so now I’m stuck doing it. Gee, thanks.
I’m kidding, sorta. You didn’t think I’d let that jackass Dane have the last word, did you?
Anyway, Piper and Rayne said I have to tell you that my book, Sexy Beast is now LIVE with a SPECIAL RELEASE PRICE of 99 cents…or you can read it through Kindle Unlimited.
Word on the street is that I’m considered the brooding one you don’t know much about. I’m okay with that. It’s how I prefer it. The people I’m closest to know the real me. Well, them and Charlie. She’s always seen through to the real me even when she was a damn teenager. You have no idea how long I’ve been trying to get this girl off my mind, but you’re about to find out.
Now if you find me gruff or dare I say…a bit of a dick? Cut a guy some slack. I was raising a tween daughter on my own and being pursued by Climax Cove’s most persistent bachelorette. Suffice to say I had two challenging females in my life and maybe for a time they didn’t exactly bring out my best side. You women should come with your own warning label: Caution – Combustible Material. Shit, I’m not helping my cause any, am I?
Suffice to say this is all a little new to me and maybe I’m not such a quick learner. But I’ve got a big heart once I let you in. I guess I should let you be the judge of that.
I’ll leave you to it. Here’s hoping you see in me what my girl Charlie does.
P.S. If you’re new around here you should know that all of the Single Dad Club books can be read as standalones, but if you’re insistent on checking out Marcus and Dane’s books Real Deal and Dirty Talker feel free. But you should know that Piper and Rayne saved the best for last. 😉
