How steamy is it? Sizzling

Publisher's Summary

Single Dad Beckley Bridges is sexy as hell. No, really, he's the hottest thing since the sun was created. Honest to God, crack an egg on him and the thing will sizzle. So what's the problem? He's also a gigantic jerk. I hate the bastard. I try to avoid him at all costs. But for some reason, everywhere I go he seems to show up. Only the real issue is his daughter, English. She's an adorable quirky first-grader who's the sweetest thing since iced tea. And she's one of my students but also the love of his life. So I have to deal with him on a professional level. It's not easy. On a scale of easy to hard, dealing with Beckley Bridges is like nails screeching across a blackboard. But when English's mother tries to gain custody after abandoning her on Beckley's doorstep as an infant, he'll do anything possible to keep her under his roof. That's how he ends up propositioning me. And crazy as it sounds? I find myself considering it.

Single Dad... SOLD!!!

I have a huge soft spot for great single dads in my books and Beck stole my heart the first scene with his daughter. He was kind of a jerk to her teacher but he was worried about his daughter and it melted my heart. Sheridan was English's teacher and she loved her from the beginning because English was a GREAT characters! I love how honest she was and I have to say I'd love to have a kid like her. Maybe the way Beck & Sheridan ended up together was a little far fetched but it's fiction so I was on board but once they click, man they clicked beautifully! The steamy scenes were hot with lots of dirty talk and they were plenty too! I loved the story line and loved how it ended even more. This is my second book by this author and I will keep watching for more on audio!

The narration was PERFECT!!! I have a serious love for Erin Mallon so I would have bought this book even if I hadn't tried the author before. She narrates about 75% of this book and her male voice is so good that I wouldn't have been upset if she had done the entire book. BUT I did think Jason Clark was fantastic too so the narration gets 6 stars from me too!

DELICIOUS.. SWEET, SEXY AND PACKED FULL OF FEELS

There's one thing going for Beckley Bridges.. and that's his devotion to his adorable sweet precocious six yr old daughter English - well that and his sex appeal, buff body and devastating good looks.. and new 1st Grade Teacher Sheridan is about to find this out. Sheridan's excited and has prepared well for her young students.. however nothing could have prepared her for English's rude, stubborn, annoying and unsociable dad. Whenever Sheridan has to interact with the sweet girl's frustrating protective dad she gets one word answers, rudeness or no answer at all - and these two characters clash for a while. But, when English starts to include her new Teacher in with her rainbow home life, everything changes.

Beck's baby daughter was left on his doorstep when he was just nineteen - along with an explanation and goodbye note from the mother - but, rather than turn his back on his responsibilities, he manned up and brought his daughter up himself (with the help of his loving parents). He doesn't date, doesn't do relationships and he's made lots of sacrifices but he wouldn't have it any other way.. his daughter comes first. So, when his stable home life is threatened by the suspicious actions of English's returning birth mother, Beck enlists the help of the feisty strong-willed Teacher who he can see loves his daughter very much. But, will their tentative truce allow them to become friends, will it make Sheridan agree to a Las Vegas wedding, could they share the same bed, fight for English in Court, protect English against whatever her birth mother is secretatively planning.. and possibly fall in love with each other too?

What a great way to pass a very lazy Sunday listening to this entertaining and beautiful book.. yes, the heroine falls in love with the daughter before she falls in love with the hero dad, but their attraction and sizzling chemistry was there from the start.. even if Beck was being a grade A asshole at the time. The storyline was nicely paced and it slowly evolved into a romantic and VERY hot listen because this sexy single dad liked to talk.. and play dirty. There was some drama and angst when the heartless junkie birth mother came slinking back on the scene, when a Judge misjudged and when one of them inevitably cocked up big time. The story was broken down into three books.. the first two were from Sheridan's POV and the third book was from Beck's POV and it was nice to finally hear his thoughts.. and thank you for not making this book into an expensive trilogy. Erin Mallon's narration was awesome, she does a great male voice and she's one of my favorites.. and Jason Clark was good too.

Worth a credit? Yes.. it was a slow-building light fictional sexy romance with some angst and drama.. and that, IMO, is definitely creditworthy.

A CUTE KID IS ALWAYS A WINNER FOR ME

I must say when a cute kid is part of the story it makes it so much better. When I can get some hot sex and funny banter it's even better. When the narration is as good as these two were in this book makes the book even more enjoyable. Love it

5 CUTE & SEXY STARS!

This is such a cute story with an adorable little girl. Sheridan is hilarious with the things that she says. Beck comes off in the beginning as an azz but as things progress with him and Sheridan that quickly changes. Beck was thrown into fatherhood without his knowledge but turned out to be an awesome dad. This is such a feel good story that my husband listen to it with me. Narrators did a wonderful job.

Hot Single Dad

This is my first book by A.M. Hargrove and I loved it.
Hot single dad- Check
Hot jerk (ish) of a Hero- check
Enemies(ish) to lovers-check
Slow burn-check
I absolutely loved this book . I am a sucker for single dad romances and this one was perfect. It shows the love that Beck has for English and how far he will go to protect her. Sheridan was the perfect answer to Beck's problems, even if he was a jerk at times.
The narrators were great. I love all of Erin Mallon's narrations and this is my first of Jason Clarke's, but he was perfect.

5 For the Love of English Stars

I loved the single dad stories and this single dad totally had me from the get-go. My heart melted at the beginning of this book and it never seemed to solidify.

English was a fantastic character, not a lot of authors can truly capture children well and A.M does this in spades.

I also very much like Sheridan, she was more hesitant but she loves what she does and you can tell that right from the beginning. I loved everything about these characters and the growth they had to go through.

I was enthralled and couldn’t stop listening to this book. I want more like it, I really hope this author will have more Audiobooks because this was amazing and the narration was perfect.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

5 Under the Rainbow Stars!!!

I LOVED this book so much that I HAD to listen to it!! And I LOVED it even more!!! Bringing the characters to life via the narrators always lets me discover new nuances I didn't notice while reading the book!!

The love I have for this book simply cannot be conveyed in words. For some reason this book just grabbed me by my heart and it hasn't let go yet. This story is so beautifully written by Ms. Hargrove. There's the somewhat aloof dad Beckley Bridges, the beautiful yet somewhat scarred Sheridan Monroe in her first year as a first grade teacher and the beautiful and vibrant six-year old English with a head full of golden curls!

Beck is doing the very best he can raising English as a single dad with the help of his parents Anna and Mark, aka Banana and Geepa. I loved her nicknames for her grandparents. Every single time she talked about or to them, I had a huge smile on my face. To say that Sheridan's first exposure to Beck is less than pleasant is putting it mildly. He came across as a true a$$hat!! Let's just say that even if he came across that way, Sheridan was immediately attracted to him. This is just exacerbated when they run into each other one night while out at a bar and it has a less than pleasant outcome for Sheridan. This is just the beginning of what will become the focus of Beck and Sheridan's story.

Sheridan proves to be an amazing teacher and her draw to English and her precociousness warmed my heart. English has a way of looking at life from her more than colorful tights to her favorite saying that has a way of brightening everyone's day. This came especially handy when English notices that Miss Monroe isn't feeling great one day.....

"I just wanted to take a picture of me on Miss Monroe's phone so she could look at it and be under the rainbow. She's been sad today."

I mean really?? How sweet is this little girl!!! Needless to say Sheridan falls more and more in love with English and her growing feelings for Beck are in turn somewhat returned but for what reason? We soon find out when Beck does find her attractive....

"I happen to think you're gorgeous. And sexy. And funny. And I want to kiss you and do other things, but I walk the straight and narrow because I try to be the best dad I can be and set a good example.

Talk about a swooning moment. Right then and there that sealed the deal for me! These two together are a riot! She's snarky and likes to talk dirty and he's this incredibly handsome, sexy man that likes to do dirty things to her and given the situation, he's going to get her into his bed however he can.....

"Is English coming home tonight?" No," he says smiling. "Wanna test out my big bed and play roll 'em?"

As the story progresses, Beck comes to Sheridan with a harebrained idea to save English from being taken away by her birth mother who all of a sudden is back in the picture. This spells bad news for everyone and I personally was incensed that this woman thought she could just waltz in and strip this vibrant sweet little girl from the only world she's known. When they take the step that you would think would solve all their problems, getting married. Everyone is happy, especially English....

"I think I'm under the biggest rainbow in the whole wide world."

Now that they're married, Beck and English don't let anything get in the way of talking dirty and making love whenever and wherever the mood strikes them. Talk about steaming up the windows and a few mirrors!!! Unfortunately, this doesn't solve the issue with English's mom. As much as they don't want it to happen, the events don't go in their favor. But don't count this couple out of it yet. There's no stone unturned in their battle to keep their little girl in the home and with the people that light her world up. It's not all roses for Beck and Sheridan as a couple either as things from the past come back to rear their ugly head in their battle to keep English.

Even when things got rough, Beck and Sheridan manage to find their way back to each other and make the strongest team ever both for themselves and for English. Their story is one of triumph over so many things and proves that love really can conquer all!

Erin and Jason together again. Another winner!!!

Erin Mallon can do anything. I liked how the author told stories within the story and English the daughter was so cute. I love these narrators together. Overall the story was long and there were times I didn't like the Male character but he won me over with his dreamy eyes...lol
I can't say this is the best or a favorite but I did enjoy it. Had any other narrators told the story, I am not sure I would have given it it 4 stars across. But if you like Erin and Jason you'll stick with it. Kind of hot love scenes too. wow...

Oh How I Love English!

I really loved the story. English is an amazing little girl and really brings a great aspect to the story. I thought it was overall a good narration but I didn’t like when the mans voice did the females dialogue. It didn’t feel right to me. But it was overall a great listen.

one heck of a story

Oh this is a good one but wasn't expecting anything else when you get AM Hargrove and Erin Mallon and Jason Clarke together. This is a fantastic story of single dad and child's teacher falling in love but in a very unconventional way. This is one heck of a good story it has so much to it. I loved Sheridan she had a terrible potty mouth which had me laughing out loud. The daughter English was just like my daughter so could relate with them so much. This is a very steamy book but done in such a great way OMG Beck's dirty talk was off the scale. Jason Clarke is fast becoming my go to male narrator his voice is not to rugged it's just so smooth. Erin Mallon can do no wrong when I start listening to her I just can't stopI get very little sleep and this was no exception. This book really pulled me in and I loved it.
