Overview

Winner of the Romantic Times Reviewers Choice Award!

Book One of Judith Arnold’s popular Daddy School series. Jamie McCoy is the ultimate guy: thirty years old, carefree and professionally successful as the writer of a nationally syndicated humor column called “Guy Stuff.” Nine and a half months ago, he spent a week basking on the beach in Eluthera and indulging in a fling with a woman at the resort. Never did he expect to find the unplanned result of that fling—a healthy, wailing baby named Samantha—strapped into a car seat on his back porch, along with a suitcase full of diapers and infant apparel and a note informing Jamie that he’s her father.

Maybe he is and maybe he isn’t. But first things first. He’s never fed a baby or changed a diaper in his life. He doesn’t own a crib or a stroller. In a panic, he phones the nearest hospital, where neonatal nurse Allison Winslow takes his call and tells him about a class she teaches called the Daddy School.

Classes on how to be a dad are exactly what Jamie needs. But when he attends his first class and sees the tall, earnest, amazingly beautiful and even more amazingly competent Allison, he realizes that he might just need more from her than her lectures on how to hold a baby.

Jamie’s efforts to be a father to this precious baby touch Allison. His sense of humor amuses her. His striking good looks turn her on. But how can she trust the sort of guy who’d sleep with a stranger on vacation, without giving a thought to the consequences? How can she give her heart to such a reckless man?

    mixed feelings about this one

    I'm glad Jamie loved Allison because I sure didn't! Her character seemed very two-faced. On one hand, she was a nurse because "she loved to help people" and cared so much about babies. On the other hand, she kept refusing to help Jamie and his newborn baby even though he admitted he wanted and needed help. She actually told him to stop seeing her and come back when he had all his problems worked out! Really, when does that happen in life? And then she got all pissy when he tried to help her with her pet project. Jamie was great, a real guy who was plainly out of his depth after making a mistake but trying to do the right thing. I loved his sense of humor. I thought the ending was very rushed, trying to wrap everything up in less than 5 pages. The story was good but could have been so much better.

    Conflicted thoughts

    I really enjoyed the concept however, I found myself struggling to get through the book. In the end it starts to pick up then the book gets a summarized rushed ending. Which come to think about it, happens a lot in the book. So maybe this can be a spring board into full length / detail novel.

    glad it was free

    Most of the book dragged on but had a rushed ending. A good story line in theory but the execution was poorly done.

    Good

    This book was good, but could have been better. He was
    Doing real well under the circumstances, but it would have
    Been better if the woman he fell in love with had been a
    More loving person. For nurse she was hard hearted and
    I felt she did not really care for the baby, she sure was not
    Showing it. Could have been better.I never want a nurse
    Like her for my baby. No heart!

    Needs to learn to write better

    The book was ok love jamie but like the others Allison was too judgemental and weak. The ajthor needs to cut down on all of the description and stay on track. I had to keep turning pages to get back on topic some things did not need to be said or repated over and over again. Will not get anymore books and will delte this one too thank goodness it was free or i would have demanded my money back.
