Miracle by RJ Scott Release Blitz

Miracle. Single Dads 7. USA Today Bestselling Author. RJ Scott.

An abandoned baby, a poignant note from his long-lost twin, and unexpectedly, Jax’s world is turned upside down.

Despite being adopted by a loving family when he was a child, Jax feels part of his life is missing, and driven by dreams of his brother being in danger, Jax is consumed by his search for his biological twin, sacrificing family events to follow leads, and missing out on his daughter’s milestones. Shocked to find a surprise delivery on his doorstep, Jax discovers that not only is he an uncle, but apparently, he’s legally a father to the baby Charlie. He calls on the unwavering support of his friends and family to solve the mystery surrounding the new arrival, but also finds help from an unexpected source—Arlo, the enigmatic bear of a man who’s worked for him since Jax first conceived of starting his own company.

Arlo is no stranger to caring. When his parents passed, he dropped out of college to care for his siblings, working construction to pay the bills. With his brothers grown and having left home, it’s Arlo’s turn to live, but when the next stage of his life means owning up to his love for Jax, he can’t do it. The problem for Arlo is that he’s been in unrequited love with his boss for three years and can’t bear to not be part of his life. Is it too much to wish for a miracle to make Jax fall for him too?

“No… mumble…” he cursed again.

This time, I tugged on his leg to get him out of the cupboard. “Out!”

He unfolded himself from where he’d been lying and propped himself up on his elbows. There was a smudge of paint over his left eyebrow, the same snowy white as the streaks in his steel gray hair. He was only thirty, but like his dad, his dark hair had lightened to salt and pepper when he hit puberty. His gray was as much part of him as his gorgeous eyes, and yes, I stared at him a lot.

When he wasn’t looking of course.

“What were you trying to say in there? Did you find something?”


I sighed with relief. “So, what was all the mumbling about?”

“I can’t come over tonight,” he admitted, and couldn’t quite meet my gaze.

“What? Why?”

Wait, could I even ask that question? That wasn’t the kind of thing a boss asks the man who works for him, right? Arlo was under no obligation to spend time with me, but on the weekends when I didn’t have my girls staying, he would always come to my place on a Friday. We’d have beer, and he’d stay over in my spare room after we’d talked until late.

It was our thing.

“Are you okay?” I placed a hand on his knee to let him know I was there for him. He moved his knee, shrugged my touch away, and I wasn’t stupid, there was something off about all of this. “Are you ill? Shit, is something wrong with one of your brothers?”

“No, and no.” Arlo shimmied up, then leaned against the sink cupboard. “It’s just, I have this thing.”

“What thing?”

He stared at me and seemed to be steeling himself to give me bad news, so I sat my ass on the floor and crossed my legs. It couldn’t be too awful because, yes, he seemed distracted, but not completely miserable, so my first guess was it had something to do with his brothers—they were the only reason he’d skip what had become our regular thing. Although, why would any of that affect our standing date-slash-non-date, I didn’t know.

“What thing?” I repeated and poked him to encourage a smile.

He wouldn’t quite meet my gaze, and again, he moved away from my touch. That never happened—Arlo was a big cuddle monster, a soft bear of a man who was tactile and open with his feelings. His heart was so pure, so freaking full of love that sometimes, he couldn’t even contain it and would hug me so hard I couldn’t breathe.

He bit his lip, a typical Arlo habit when he was stressed. This was at odds with him saying everything was okay.

“Ihaveadate,” he blurted in one long run-on sentence, then dipped his gaze, and I swear his face was scarlet.

I slowed down the words to parse their meaning.

I. Have. A. Date.

“You’ve got a what now?” I asked after a pause; not sure I was hearing right.

He cleared his throat and, at last, held my gaze. For a moment, I was lost in watching him tug at his gray hair and seeing the uncertainty and nerves in his intriguing gray eyes. “A date,” he repeated in a softer almost apologetic tone.

Of all the things he could tell me, why was it something that was going to make me spin out?

Since when did Arlo date? He’d told me point-blank that being responsible for his two younger brothers, plus working for me, was enough without contemplating dating. I’d taken that at face value and almost settled into that sweet spot where we could be friends and I could lust from afar, ignoring the unrequited everything I had going on.

The last thing he needed, or should expect, was for me to ask why he was going on a date. Don’t ask. Don’t freaking ask.

“Why?” Shit. I couldn’t help myself.

He shot me one of his affectionate, patient smiles. One of the cute ones that made his eyes sparkle with mischief. Or something.

“Just because…” He sighed. “Sutton left for college, and now… I’m ready to move on. I need to date.” He stared at me.

I tried to read his expression and the determination in his tone. “Date,” I repeated.

A familiar smile teased his lips. “Trace downloaded this app thing, and I swished or swiped or whatever, and then, someone matched me, so I’m meeting this guy called Wilton tonight.” In one sentence, he threw open all my tightly checked emotions and ripped apart my ordered world.

Apparently, he was ready to date.

Date other people.




Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Another sweet story to add to the series. Jax and Arlo are so amazing. To watch them together when dealing with the baby showing up on the front doorstep and finally figuring out their feelings for one another. This was a read that gave you the feels, and you went through all the emotions with them. Jax and Arlo are perfect for each other and I loved watching them together.

Miracle is a sweet, heartfelt, found family, m/m romance.

Jax was adopted as a child and has found out that he has a biological twin. He has felt the need to find his brother, Zach, for years but always just seems one step behind him. Jax owns a construction company and that's where he met his best friend, Arlo. Jax finds himself attracted to Arlo and wants more with him but is scared it will ruin the friendship. He has had partnership papers drawn up for months but wants his feelings for Arlo known before he offers a partnership in the company. He would like a partnership in all aspects of life with Arlo. When Arlo and Jax arrive at Jax's house and find a baby waiting, they don't know what to think. Accompanying the baby's things is a letter from Zach asking Jax to take care of Charlie, who is Zach's son, until he can come back and get him.

Arlo raised his two younger brothers when their parents died. He gave up his dreams to raise them and never thought twice about it. Sutton and Trace mean everything to him. When he started working with Jax, he was instantly attracted to him and loved the friendship they developed. He's terrified to tell Jax how he really feels but loves their Friday night sleepovers at Jax's house. With his brother's help, he tells Jax he has a date from an app. Does he want to date? No, but he needs to get himself out there and tell Jax how he truly feels. Then those plans are put on the back burner when Jax's nephew shows up and needs Jax. Of course, that means that Arlo will do everything he can to help Jax with Charlie.

I loved watching Jax and Arlo open up to each other and find out they were feeling the same feelings. They so easily fell into a ready-made family with Charlie. It was very heartwarming with a dash of suspense with the addition of Zach and his goings-on. I am super interested in going to read that series to get the full story!
