Hired by the Single Dad


Publisher’s Synopsis:
He needs someone to work with his son, she needs a job. They need to keep their hands to themselves.

Welcome to Seattle, the Emerald City and home to The Single Dads of Seattle. Ten sexy single fathers who play poker every Saturday night, have each other’s backs, love their children without quarter, and hope to one day find love again. This is Mark’s story …

Single Dad of Seattle Dr. Mark Herron can’t believe anyone would celebrate their divorce. The dissolution of his marriage left him and his son with a huge hole to fill in their home–and their hearts. So when he overhears a lovely stranger and her friends celebrating the end of her marriage, he’s mystified–and then intrigued–by her determination to put the past behind her. But when he learns that Tori Jones needs a job, he knows this can’t be a coincidence.

Tori might be telling the world nothing’s got her down, but the truth is she’s hit rock bottom. Her husband didn’t just cheat on her, he took all her money, including her college fund, which means her marriage is over, and so is her dream to go to grad school and help children with special needs. So when a handsome stranger offers her a job caring for his special needs son, she knows she can’t turn it down–

Even if what she’s feeling for Mark is far from professional. Now Mark’s finding it hard to keep his hands to himself and Tori’s struggling to keep her thoughts from straying to dangerous territory. Will they be able to keep their distance from each other or will being hired by the sexy single dad be Tori’s biggest problem of all?

Point of view:
3rd person.

Rellim’s Thoughts:
DNF – I’m bummed this didn’t work out because single parent (dad in this case) is one of my favorite tropes.

The set-up was odd: I can’t believe any parent would hire a private therapist for their child just because they felt sorry for them and they were attractive. No references. No background check.

Then chapter 2 was a huge info dump on the various men making up the Single Dads Club, their kids, their exes, their professions, etc. I felt like I should have been taking notes.

I stopped listening when I got to chapter 3 and it’s the audio file from the 3rd book in the series. (I have KU and based on the names – I was able to borrow Saved by the Single Dad and confirm it’s the chapter from that book).

This was my first time listening to Allyson Voller & Zachary Johnson. While I liked their voices, the delivery for both wasn’t as dynamic as I’m used to. There was very little distinction between character voices – which is especially a problem when so many characters are introduced in such a short time.
