Publisher's Summary

As far as flings go, single dad Gabe Trahan is pretty sure that Addison Sloan is his best bet. Once a month, Addison comes to New Orleans and then…It. Is. On. Until Addison returns to New York, it’s just hot, happily-no-strings-attached sex. And beignets. And jazz. But lately for Gabe, it isn’t nearly enough.

Sure, maybe Addison’s gotten a bit hooked on Gabe. After all, who can resist a guy who’s so sexy, so charming, and so…available? But maybe he’s too available for her right now. Addison’s just moved to New Orleans, and relationships are definitely off the table. Besides, guys always bail when they learn her secret: she’s a single mom.

Only Gabe’s not running. Worse, he’s thrilled. But Addison never signed up for ever-after romance, and Gabe won’t settle for anything less. Now it’s a battle of wills - and when it comes to the woman he’s falling for, Gabe isn’t above playing a little dirty.

3 stars

This was my first book by this author. While it was just ok, it didn't have that extra spark in a romance and I didn't really connect with the main characters. Ryan was a good choice for narrator.

it takes two

Gabe and Addison couldn't be more real without jumping off the page. Erin Nicholas spun a web that pulled me in and transported me. This story of two single parents wading through life and looking for that shining star is absolutely phenomenal. Ryan West, no words can describe the emotions he poured into this book and into me.

Too Sappy

The narrator did a great job, but the author spent way to much time explaining their feelings, repeating just about the same things over and over again. Because of that, it was a very slow moving book with a short uncomplicated story line. I was glad when it was over.

Entertaining story

Gabe and Allison have been hooking up once a month when she has been in New Orleans. They have not revealed their “real” lives to each other but that changes as feeling are now getting deeper in addition when Gabe finds out she just moved to New Orleans. I enjoyed this story of two people trying to figure out how to be in a relationship in addition to the fact that each are single parents.

Loved this!

What a wonderful story and Ryan West was an amazing narrator as always! I think what I loved most was the fact that the adults were mature and talked out the issues. The kids were adorable as well.

Sweet romance; light read

This is a nice story with some issues to keep the plot going, but no great angst. It starts off with a sizzle, then draws you in as, for a change, the hot guy wants a relationship more than the hot woman. I could relate to the single parenting issues as I found myself in that situation and know how tough it can be. Doing your best to be a good parent, wanting a life outside of parenting and having someone walk away when they find out you have a child. I needed a break from nonfiction, but didn't want a lot of darkness and angst. This truly fulfilled that need. I can see me moving on to the next book in the series.

Good Story

The narrator did a good job. I really enjoyed Gabe and Addison and their storyline. I'm not usually a big fan of kids in books but I really enjoyed them as secondary characters.

Going down easy

I just couldn't get into this book. Loved the single parent aspect. The narration was spot on and from a man's point of view. There was entirely too much talking and thinking about sex, with the storyline taking third place. If this is what is running in a man's mind 24/7, how on earth do they function in the real world. If Gabe wasn't dreaming, thinking of engaged in doing a carnal act he remembered that he had a family. Addison had a child she loved, but hadn't really wanted. Rather a confusing conflict with her dedication to said child. Both were good & loving parents, and I really liked that. Addison spent rather too much time "melting" with want with just a glance at Gabe. Come on already-it was established early on that they couldn't resist each other, did it really need to saturate each and every waking moment to the exclusion of a storyline. I am not sure I will try this author again, as I seem to have a different opinion as to what I expect the sex/storyline ratio to be.

Sweet with no depth

This is a sweet romance that could have been much better. We started off knowing about Addison’s job, and her past leaving me to believe that would come into play later. That never developed. The entire plot revolved around the H/h relationship with non of the secondary plot interfering. There was hardly any tension or drama or mystery to hold interest. All in all this is a cute, sweet with a little hot sex book.
