|I’m a full-time single dad to three daughters and CFO at Cloverleigh Farms. I don’t have time to fall in love—I’m too busy trying to run a business, keep the red socks out of the white laundry, and get the damn pillowcases on without owing a dollar to the swear jar.
Sure, Frannie Sawyer is beautiful and sweet, but she’s twenty-seven, the boss’s daughter, and my new part-time nanny—which means she’s completely off-limits. It’s bad enough I can’t stop fantasizing about her, what kind of jerk would I be if I acted on the impulse to kiss her?
(Exactly the kind of jerk you’re thinking.)
Actually, I’m worse than that—because I didn’t stop with a kiss, and now I can’t stay away. She makes me feel like myself again. She reminds me what it’s like to want something just for me. She’s everything I ever needed, but nothing I ever imagined.
I’m a former Marine. I should have had the strength to resist her from the start.
But I didn’t. And now I have to choose between the life I want and the life she deserves.
Even if it means giving her up.
|Um livro novo da Melanie Harlow com um pai solteiro? Impossível não ler!! Livros com crianças são meu fraco, mas Irresistible é bem mais complexo que somente a história de um pai solteiro. É um livro sobre lutar pelos seus sonhos, acreditar em você mesmo e ir à luta. Frannie é uma heroína maravilhosa, que não leva desaforo para casa e sabe o que quer, mesmo quando sua família quer protegê-la. Mack é um pai maravilhoso, fazendo tudo que pode para criar suas filhas sozinhos, mas as vezes eu queria esganá-lo por não ver o que estava debaixo do seu nariz. Eles têm uma excelente química e uma história de amor que vai te fazer rir e chorar ao mesmo tempo. Mal posso esperar pelo próximo livro da série!||A new book by Melanie Harlow with a single dad? Give it to me!! Really, books with kids are always my favorites, but Irresistible is so much more than a single dad book. It’s a book about fighting for your dreams, about believing in yourself and what you’re capable of. Frannie is an amazing heroine. Sweet and strong at the same time, she knows what she wants and is not afraid of getting it. Mack is an amazing dad, but sometimes I wanted to shake him, to make him see what was in front of his nose!! Those two have a great chemistry and a love story that made me laugh and cry at the same time. Can’t wait for the next book in the series.|
|I was holding my breath.
I wasn’t even sure why, but it was something about the way Mack was looking at me. And the tension in his body—the taut muscles in his neck. The grip of his fingers on the edge of the counter. The set of his jaw. It gave the impression of restraint. Like he was holding himself back.
Something unfamiliar hummed in the air between us. I could feel it—he wanted me the way I wanted him.
No wonder I couldn’t breathe.
Then he cleared his throat and turned away from me, cutting off the current. “Sure. Everybody needs to make mistakes now and then.”
I’d forgotten I’d even asked the question.
He turned the sink on, rinsed his dishes, and placed them in the dishwasher. I stood there staring at his muscular back, at the width of his shoulders, at the snug fit of his jeans on his butt. If I were his and he were mine, I’d go over and wrap my arms around his waist, press my cheek to his back. Then he’d turn around, winding his arms around me. He’d lower his lips to mine, and—
“I should get you home,” he said, interrupting my fantasy. “Want to grab your coat?”
“Sure.” But I didn’t really want to leave. I wanted to stay in this warm, chaotic house with him and the girls. Pretend I belonged here. Pretend I belonged to him.
