River Bend series
by Molly McLain
When life gives you lemons, find a former Marine with sexy abs to lick the lemonade from…
Tony Dunn’s panty-snatching bachelor life has been turned upside down—he now has custody of a daughter he didn’t even know he fathered. With his focus solely on doing right by his little girl, the last thing he needs is a sexy, totally distracting blonde showing up on his doorstep.
Nicole Hodges is in River Bend temporarily, to handle her grandmother’s estate and get the heck out of Dodge before her past catches up with her. Only problem is…she likes the quiet little town more than she expects, and she can’t resist overextending herself to help her built-like-a-bad-boy neighbor get his life back on track.
Tony and Nicole have different goals in mind, none of which include a relationship. But what harm could come from a little fun–the naked kind–if they both know the rules up front?
Warning: This book contains a sex-deprived single dad with a wicked tongue. Enough said.
Y’all need to take that warning seriously because Tony definitely knows what he’s doing …. and McLain isn’t afraid to let him do it. Oh, and surprise surprise, I picked up another series after it starts – I’m so good at that 🙂 – although Can’t Get Enough can definitely stand on its own and everything wraps up nicely at the end. But there are some sexy men and women who are just begging for a story of their own!
I will say that I don’t know that there is any man on earth who is as wonderful as Tony – he’s a dedicated father, a hard worker, and is amazingly sensitive to other people. I don’t think he made a single misstep in the entire story, so I just had to add him to my fictional boyfriend list. Caring and generous and sexy as all get out, I don’t think you’ll have any problem adding him to yours too!
Nicole has a few more problems – she’s trying to get back on her feet after a disastrous marriage and she’s just passing thru town so falling for Tony is a big no-no … but see the previous bit about Tony’s perfection and you know how hard that is going to be. Together Nicole and Tony make a great pair, sassy and fun, although thanks to that disastrous marriage Nicole definitely has a hard time letting Tony all the way end. But he handles it very well (perfect, remember?).
I know that some people prefer a more PG story but if you are good with steamy scenes and coarse language, then I definitely recommend picking up Can’t Get Enough as soon as possible. The romance itself is heartwarming and the characters are really loveable, you just have to be prepared to get a little hot under the collar 🙂
