-- When love lasts --
I'm a sucker for single dad stories and this one was a real winner! An amazing father, a sympathetic nanny, and a precocious seven year old made Doughn't Let Me Go quite the entertaining and hilarious read.

Porter was:
🍕 patient, understanding and kind
🍕 incredibly hot and sexy
🍕 a fabulous dad. Not too strict and not too lax. He found an interesting balance that worked for him and his daughter, making me want more time spent on them and their every interaction.
🍕 he came from poverty and with sheer determination and a certain set of skills, turned his life around and became a multimillionaire. He appreciated everything he was able to accomplish and didn't act entitled or 'posh'.
🍕 he and his daughter absolutely made this story for me. I couldn't get enough of them!!

Dory was:
🍕 a hardknock story who was struggling to dig herself out of her hole
🍕 a sweetheart who didn't always act sweet. Poor Porter had to work WAY too hard for little reward.
🍕 fantastic with both Kyrie and her father

I loved how The Slice played such an integral role in this story. It's always great when a place is not only where the meet-cute happens, but that it serves to continue helping to make memories. And how can you go wrong with pizza? With terrific writing, wonderful characters, humor and so much feeling, this is an easy book recommendation to make.


-- About the Book --
It was just supposed to be one night.

No kissing. No feelings. A wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am tangle in the sheets and we go our own ways.

Only it’s a small town, and I was bound to run into the irresistible Porter Jones again.

I just didn’t expect it to be at my job interview…which he’s conducting.

Now the live-in nanny to his adorable seven-year-old daughter, I’m doing my best to avoid falling for his charms.

Except it’s much harder than either of us anticipated.

What’s a few romps between friends?
No kissing. No feelings. Just fun.

Sounds simple, right?
Right...

-- Excerpt --
“Stay!” Kyrie begs. “Puh-lease. You can help us pick out more decorations.”

“Kyrie, I’m sure Dory has other plans.”

I get it. It’s awkward. He doesn’t want me here.

“Pro!” His daughter holds her little finger up. “I won’t have to walk around with this guy alone.”

Oh, god. She’s making a pros and cons list.

“Good pro. I mean he is wearing a tiara.”

“Hey! I make this tiara look damn good.”

We ignore Porter.

“Con: I’d be interrupting your daddy-daughter time.”

“We live together. It’s okay.” Kyrie waves her hand like my point is silly. “Pro: I’d make a new friend, and Dad says it’s important to make new friends in our new town.”

I can’t argue with that point… “Con: I’m technically a stranger, and you’re not supposed to talk to strangers.”

“How else are you supposed to make friends, then?”

“Oh snap,” Porter whispers, grinning at his daughter’s ability to best me.

“What kind of kid are you raising?”

He laughs. “You wouldn’t believe how often people ask me that.”

“Pro: You get to make a new friend too.”

She doesn’t even know how much I need that.

“Con: I have to be at work in an hour.”

“Pro: It’s going to be really, really fun.”

Con: I’ve seen Porter naked.

Con: You’re not supposed to hang out with your one-night stand and his daughter.

Con: He’s the exact type of guy I could fall for if I ever let myself fall.


“Con: I’m all out of cons.”

Kyrie lets out a loud giggle. “Then I win. You’re shopping!”

I look at her. Her eyes are wide and hopeful, and she takes an extra-long blink, giving her best puppy dog eyes.

I slide my own eyes to Porter, and he’s doing the same.

For her, he mouths. He makes a show of holding his hands out, then tucking them into his jeans, like he’s trying to tell me that’s where they’ll stay.

“All right, let’s shop.”

It’s brief, but the look in Porter’s eyes is unmistakable.

Excitement.

-- Who is Teagan Hunter? --
I’m a Missouri-raised gal, but currently live in South Carolina with my Marine veteran husband. I spend my days begging him for a cat, and I survive off coffee, pizza, and sarcasm. When I’m not writing, you can find me binge-watching various TV shows, especially Supernatural and One Tree Hill. I like cold weather, buy more paperbacks than I’ll ever read, and I never say no to brownies.
