Overview

USA Today Bestselling Author

Ex-military man Derrick Richmond. Solitary and satisfied…until little Timmy was dropped into his lap and Derrick had to learn to be somebody's daddy.

The Single Woman:
Schoolteacher Anna Maxwell. Fate might have denied her a family of her own, but Anna still had plenty of love to give, if only someone would notice.

The Solution:
Anna would teach Derrick all he needed to know about kids. Father and son would give Anna some precious memories. Then the schoolteacher and the single dad would go their separate ways. Unless one little boy figured out a way to make Miss Maxwell become his mom!

    Awful writing crammed into 140 nook pgs. Felt like a 16yr wrote

    Awful writing crammed into 140 nook pgs. Felt like a 16yr wrote it - overly dramatic and silly word choices. She was in agony thinking of him after their first date, then they fell in love in 2 dates? They broke up "just because"? Most of the book took place in her classroom and they only had a few conversations one on one. Zero chemistry or romance. Not sure if a longer book could save this writer - delete!

    I love Donna Fasano's romances, I'm a big fan, have been since I discovered her as an Harlequin author.

    This was a wonderful romance about conquering deep set fears and apprehension.

    Derrick is the guardian of his godson, Timmy, who, after his father's death, struggles from aggresive behaviour at school. Enter Timmy's teacher Anna who does all she can to help Derrick acclimatize to his new role as 'daddy'.

    An entertaining read full of emotion.

    Off to read, Jason, the second book in the series.

    The Single Daddy Club: Derrick, Book 1 by Donna Fasano

    This review was originally posted on Big Al's Books and Pals review blog on December 19, 2012

    Three single dads band together to offer support for each other in raising their children single handedly, each being in this situation for very different reasons. They are proud of their single status and vow to be loving, nurturing parents. They also state that although female companionship would be nice, they will not marry solely for the sake of their children. Their motto is “Fatherhood forever!”

    When Naval officer Derrick Richmond was given custody of his godson, five-year old Timmy, he resigned his full-time status and joined the Naval Reserves so he could raise Timmy in a secure stable environment. Derrick enlists the help of Timmy’s kindergarten teacher Anna when Timmy starts acting out at school.

    The story opens with Derrick being summoned for parent/teacher conference because of behavior problems Timmy is having at school. Derrick is very defensive and protective of Timmy and doesn't make the best first impression with Anna. He is overbearing and head strong, but realizes he needs help. Anna reluctantly agrees to help him with parenting lessons. She is a smart woman and is able to pinpoint some of the problems immediately after joining them on a Saturday outing. The chemistry between Derrick and Anna is immediate and she wastes no time putting up defenses to protect her heart. It is clear she has been hurt in the past and has resigned herself to an unrealistic fate. Luckily, Derrick is a smart sensitive man and has full intention of straightening her attitude out.

    I love the journeys this author takes us on in each of her stories. They are always realistic, heartwarming and a bit heart-wrenching. The prose draws you in quickly and you feel her character’s pains, agonies, and joys thoroughly. The kindergarten room scenes were a lot of fun. The author has captured the kids and their dialogue perfectly. I found the last scene in the classroom a little hard to read, the tears in my eyes kept blurring the words, of course that wasn't even the end of the story. The ending was even better.

    **Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy. **

    It should come as no surprise that I love this author¿s book





    It should come as no surprise that I love this author’s books and writing style: the more traditional form of romance that is character driven, relates to people in all situations and places in life and has a happy ending are just the thing for a quiet afternoon curled up with a book. 




    This story is written with heart and emotion clear on the page.  Derrick is both perfectly suited to parenthood and completely clueless about ‘parenting’ and not just being a friend. Of course, he’s made huge changes In his life to accommodate his new situation, he just needs a crash course.  Anna is that perfect choice, logically, as she is a teacher and has ‘experience’ with kids.  Her personal style and commitment to her lessons and the children, however, create real issues for the former strictly controlled and scheduled military man.  




    In incremental pieces, Donna Fasano shows Derrick, and the reader by extension, that strict adherence to schedules and planning every facet of every day is literally impossible when dealing with children. From his initial irritation with Anna not being in the appointed place, to her suggestions that Timmy help carry and plan; Derrick is learning to loosen up and go with the flow, even if he doesn’t like the idea. 




    As the sparks fly and Anna is convinced that Derrick needs a woman who can give him more children – the true conflict arises.  His approach and direct confrontation is a scene that will win your heart –even if you aren’t half in love with him already, his character is that well created.  And everyone will wish for a teacher like Anna for their young children: dedicated, excited and truly a source of learning and inspiration for her class with an approach that teaches personal responsibility and shows empathy, not just recitation of a lesson. 




    There are no great mysteries here: everyone learns something about themselves, about their heart, and about trusting in love to conquer all.  With a happy ever after that is even sweeter in the telling, you too will be a fan of this story.  




    I received an eBook copy from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
