Publisher's Summary

The Teddy Bear Club

Two lonely men. One perfect family.

Aiden Lake adopted his institutionalized sister's two daughters, and he's a good dad. He works nights on websites and gets in his adult time twice a week at the Roasty Bean, where he meets with other single gay parents.

Devon Smithson wants to be a good dad now that his 16-year-old sister asked him to babysit her newborn...three months ago. But he's overwhelmed with the colicky baby. An invitation to the daddy-and-kid gatherings at the café is a godsend. The pot is sweetened when his friendship with Aiden develops into more - maybe even something that can last.

But the mother who kicked Dev out for being gay wants to get her claws into the baby, and she doesn't care if she tears Dev, Aiden, and everything they're building apart in the process.

Cute little love story

It wasn’t bad, but I might have liked it a little more if I hadn’t needed to suspend my disbelief as much, especially about how fast the couple went from strangers to living together and engaged. You can still have a happy ending without a marriage proposal to someone you’ve known 2 weeks. (Or if it really was meant to be much longer than that, the time line should definitely have been clarified.)

My only other complaint is related to the audio performance—I felt the two protagonists’ voices were similar and I often struggled to tell who was talking.

But aside from this, it delivers what it promises, I enjoyed watching the characters fall in love, and I appreciated the balance of romantic relationship and family stuff.
