Daddy Needs a Date by Sean Michael

With four girls, single dad Ryan Withers has his hands too full to look for romance. He’s not complaining—he loves his daughter and the three nieces he adopted when their parents died, and he would do anything for them. He’s caught off guard when his mother and daughter decide to play matchmaker.

Alex Bernot works in disaster relief, his job taking him all over the world, helping others, for extended periods of time. He’s staying with his aunt while he’s home, and she sets him up on a blind date. Finding a special someone isn’t really on his mind, but he goes to make his aunt happy.

Ryan and Alex enjoy each other’s company more than either of them expected, and they soon make a second date. Their lives are complicated, though, in very different ways, and soon family needs and their jobs conspire to pull them apart. They’ll need to figure out how to work through the things keeping them apart, but first they’ll have to decide if they even want to…

This book was a great mix of cute, sweet, and sexy, just like you'd guess from the cover.

Ryan is a dream guy. He's an amazing guy and a wonderful dad. Like any single parent, he's busy juggling work and home life, but with four girls at home doing in him, there really isn't much time for relationships. A few flings, sure, but anything more could really derail the careful balance he has created.

Alex is another version of that dream man. He's a really good guy all around and made charity and rescue his job. He works extremely hard and is constantly traveling from one place to another to help others. On one of the few occasions he's home, his aunt sets him up on a blind date. He really isn't interested, but figures he might as well do it for his aunt. Besides, he'll probably never see the guy again anyway.

When the two of them meet, there are a few awkward moments, but both are shocked by the natural chemistry. Despite both expecting it to be a one-off date, they find themselves craving more time, but is it even possible between Ryan raising four girls and Alex having to leave the country at a moment's notice?

I didn't have any problems finishing this one. It was shorter and flowed easily to the end. It does go a bit along the "insta-love" route, but for a short and sweet story, it works. As a mom, I found a few things with the youngest girl making her seem a bit younger than she was, but that's probably just me being fussy. The sexy parts were definitely sensual and hot. I commend the author for managing to get a good variation of scenes in a shorter story. It didn't feel like the same thing happening over and over.

Overall, I enjoyed this one and would recommend it to MM romance fans. It's a sweet one, just in time for holiday break reading.

Aw, this story was so strong with the feels. I loved Ryan and Alex and then the girls. Ohmigod, the girls, they were so wonderful and such a part of this story and I loved every part from beginning to end. In true Sean Michael's fashion there was also some hot sexy times too. I cried a few times reading this story just because I felt all the emotions of each of these characters. The book went by so fast and I felt like I was there in the moment; sweet love story with lots and lots of heart.

Often referred to as “Space Cowboy” and “Gangsta of Love” while still striving for the moniker of “Maurice,” Sean Michael spends his days surfing, smutting, organizing his immense gourd collection, and fantasizing about one day retiring on a small secluded island peopled entirely by horseshoe crabs.

While collecting vast numbers of vintage gay pulp novels and mood rings, Sean whiles away the hours between dropping the F-bomb and pursuing the Kama Sutra by channeling the long-lost spirit of John Wayne and singing along with the soundtrack to Chicago.

A longtime writer of complicated haiku, currently Sean is attempting to learn the advanced arts of plate spinning and soap carving sex toys. Barring any of that? He’ll stick with writing his stories, thanks, and rubbing pretty bodies together to see if they spark.
