Single by RJ Scott

Reeling from the painful rejection of a man he thought he loved, Asher is left holding the baby.

Ash wants a family, and is determined to continue with a surrogacy he’d begun with his ex. Bringing baby Mia home, he vows that he will be the best father he can be. Nothing in this world matters more to him than caring for his daughter, not even accidentally falling in lust with the doctor next door. Challenged by his growing attraction to Sean, and confronted by painful memories of his family, Ash has to learn that love is all that matters.

When ER doctor Sean moves in with his friends next door to sexy single father Ash, he falls so quickly it takes his breath away. The sex they have is hot, but Ash is adamant his heart is too full with love for his daughter to let anyone else in. Why is Sean the only one who sees how scared Ash is, and how can he prove to his new lover that he desperately wants the three of them to become a family?

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is the first book in the series – and I read it in advance of reading Today, which has just been released (review up next!). I would say that they should be read in order as the group of friends roll forward and we get to meet both the Today leads in this book first.

I very much enjoyed the juxtaposition of the trip of first responders in one house, with very frenetic, stressful, and demanding jobs, and the very quiet, work-at-home but now utterly frazzled new dad, Asher, next door. It was used very effectively to show how important all moments of calm and support can be, whatever the reason for the need. The trio had a well-developed and practiced routine for helping each other, but Ash was so desperate to be the perfect dad that it took him a while to accept help, even when he really needed it.

Lots of fun ‘raising baby’ scenes, which will strike chords with any new parent, and probably remind single parents that there are good people out there who will not be put off, or in fact who will embrace that there is a child in the mix. I felt that we got to know Sean, Leo, and Eric more than we really did Ash, although if I really think about it, that is not exactly true – possibly because they had more chat time together, I engaged more with them.

Overall, this is a very sweet, hopeful, and endearing story which brought in lots of side characters in clever ways (SDT, for example) and should lead to some more engaging and interlinked stories in the future.

USA Today bestselling author RJ Scott writes stories with a heart of romance, a troubled road to reach happiness, and most importantly, a happily ever after.

The last time she had a week’s break from writing she didn’t like it one little bit, and she has yet to meet a bottle of wine she couldn’t defeat.

She’s always thrilled to hear from readers, bloggers and other writers.
