“Goodness gracious, single dads — good ones — really do have a hotness about them that’s unmatched. I think it’s because they show their ability to love. With every conversation, every kiss, every consideration they give their kids, women see the opportunity to be given the same. It’s concrete, black-and-white evidence of a man’s ability to think outside of himself. Which isn’t exactly on the top of the list of the male’s biological strengths.”
Married 40ish Year Old Woman Seeking More Max Monroe Romances
You should know that I adore Max Monroe. My book bestie and I talk about how they are the perfect antidote to everything that ills you.
Bad day? ✓ Read a Max Monroe book.
Husband driving you crazy because he walks too loudly around the house while you’re working? ✓ Pull up your favorite Max Monroe book and it wards away all the evil-intent you have for him.
Read a particularly angsty book that makes you feel as though it’s rung the soul out of your body? ✓ Download Single Dad Seeks Juliet, and everything will be made better.
No seriously. This book made me smile from ear-to-ear even when I reached the points of this story when my heart was beating up in my throat, and the happy feelings were endangered. This book is a perfect reminder of why Max Monroe romances are medicine for your soul.
What is it about Single Dad Seeks Juliet that should make your finger click your Amazon Shopping app and quickly one-click this book? Well, here goes:
✓ Ummm, Jake Brent is a freaking thirst trap. No really. There isn’t anything MM’s hero cannot do. Former Navy Seal who works out on the beach every day in his tight wetsuit that shows all of his wonderful lumps? Yup. Single dad who absolutely adores his daughter Chloe? Oh yeah. I mean he is a Dreamy Dad. He’s so good at it that Chloe has a maturity and insightful nature as a seventeen-year-old girl that you don’t usually see in books (or the real-world) unless they’ve been raised by impressive parents. He owns his own business which allows him to roll in the cash with ease AND his employees respect him even when he has a foul mood. Uh-huh. Oh, and, he’s a great best friend who speaks honesty but with kindness and always has a beer for his friend. AND he rides moto-cross. He rides moto-cross well. Max Monroe reached into their MAN toolbox and basically created the best hero. You can’t help but adore him because, on top of all of that, this man falls HARD for MM’s heroine, Holley. He sees her in a way that only her dad sees, so you can’t help but root for him even as he finds himself on dates with other women (not his idea, by the way). I ADORED Jake Brent because Max Monroe crafted it to be.
✓ I ADORE a Max Monroe heroine. They are always so incredibly quirky and awkward and lovely. Holley is all of these things. I love that she’s awkward and never apologizes for it. She’s simply herself, and you definitely NEED her to end up with Brent. She is forced to sit through his dates, and Max Monroe give her feelings that are commensurate with the experience. She’s just so darn amazing that I want to be Holley.
✓Holley and Jake’s chemistry is born in words. Yes, you read that right. These two banter like no other, and it’s that banter that acts like foreplay for their eventual physical encounter. Even more, Max Monroe make them wait. This is a slow-burn, folks, in terms of the actual physicality of their relationship. However, the story is still steamy because their attraction and chemistry are undeniable.
✓I’ve already mentioned Chloe. She’s a wonderful daughter with too much insight for her own good. However, my favorite character beyond Holley and Jake is Phil Fields, Holley’s father. In fact…well, no, I won’t tell you. I’ll let you read the story and figure this out. Phil Fields has a texting issue, and his insights will make you belly laugh. The wisdom he imparts on his daughter will bring a tear to your eye. He is perfection, and every time he’s on the page, he steals your focus away from Holley and Jake, and quite frankly, that’s okay.
Single Dad Seeks Juliet made my day. It encompasses everything you love about a Max Monroe book. They’re undeniable as reigning rom-com queens, and this newest book is a continued testament to their ability to create stories that make you laugh and sigh and wish away the hardships of your day. If you are a married mom in her 40s seeking a respite from the doldrums of life, then you WANT this book. STAT.
In love and romance,
