Oh, this is by far my favorite story in Ms Gilmore’s series, Happy Endings Book Club. Who doesn’t love a single Dad whose fiance had a tragic death, a two year old that is going through the terrible twos, and a sweet second grade teacher, who is looking for Mr Right in a matchmaking service, and sees working as a nanny , the perfect way to spend her Summer break . Little did Lauren and Alex know that life as they knew it would change. Will Lauren find her Mr Right, will Alex be willing to open his heart, and will they have their “happy ending” after all? This one will touch your hearts. At times you will want to give them all a hug, at others you want to tell them to move forward, but in the end , you too will have your happy ending. I was gifted this copy. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

Josh his older brother gets him a babysitter. The sweet loving Lauren. Everything is great Lauren is going to be a nanny and help Hailey business by let her match her up with a great man. Until Lauren falls for Alex. Not that she already did not she loved Viv and Mad, Alex's daughter and littler sister but she want it all the happy ever after. Alex lost Viv's mom during her birth and has never moved on. Is it the right time for him to let go. Will Lauren be the one to win his heart or is he to shut off? This is a must read. It had me laughing and crying. And OMG that 2 year old kid will just get to you. I will say I love books with kids in them and this was a fantastic one. I will say Josh and Hailey helps make all these books too.

I truly enjoyed reading Formal Arrangement by Kylie Gilmore. This is another amazing story, the fourth, in her the Happy Endings Book Club series. Elementary school teacher Lauren Bishop agreed to help Alex Campbell with his two year old daughter, Viv, during her summer break. Alex worked from home but as Viv was cutting her two year old molars he could not work, sleep, or calm her down. Lauren had the magic touch, calming Viv and keeping her active like a two year old should. The only problem was Lauren’s attraction to Alex which she refused to act on and Alex’s attraction to Lauren. Alex does not do relationships and uses the guilt he feels for causing the death of Viv’s mother to justify it. Alex can’t afford to lose Lauren as his nanny and needs to convince her to stay, but can he? This story showed another side to the world of singular parenting and that sometimes it’s okay to admit that you need a little help from your friends. I really enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down. Ms. Gilmore wove a wonderful tale and I highly recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

What I like best about this book is the real angst I felt for the overwhelmed single dad with his high energy toddler daughter. Yeah, he needs a nanny who’s gonna stick around, and now that he’s found one, no way is he not going to fall for her. Even though she’s not his type—too sweet, too nice, to handle his “edge” in the bedroom. Of course appearances can be deceiving. Another fun read in the Happy Ending Book Club series.

Heartwarming, Funny, Sweet, Sexy and Overall beautifully written romantic journey of a single dad looking to raise one amazing little girl and finding he might not need to struggle alone. Lauren Bishop is a school teacher off for the summer and working as a nanny seems the perfect fit for her summer plan to find her forever love. (she even signed up for help in that area) Alex Campbell is a sexy hot alpha male that lost one love already and is so not looking to open himself to that risk of heartbreak again. His only love is his adorable two year old daughter that he lives for and is looking for a helping hand. This love story is full of heart and laughter not to mention strong family bounds.

There's nothing sexier than a single dad with a darling two year old daughter and although Alex has made Viv his number one priority he's still dealing with his grief over the death of Viv's mother in childbirth. After hiring and firing a boatload of caretakers for his precocious daughter Viv, he finds grade school teacher Lauren, who quickly becomes the most important person in both of their lives. The star of this book is definitely darling little Viv whose bubbling personality and adorable antics made me laugh out loud and witnessing the loving attention both Alex and Lauren shower upon Viv made my gooey heart melt. But never fear, this author always includes plenty of smoldering sexual attraction between her characters that will raise your heart rate and soon you'll be falling in love with this little family of 3. I read a complimentary copy of this book and all opinions expressed in my voluntary review are completely my own.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. This story is one of my favorites in this series. It stars Alex who is the single dad and Lauren, one Maddie’s friends from the book club. She the school teacher. First I want to mention that from reading other books I saw Alex one way and that was more of a nerd type of single dad. It came from the fact that he designs websites and spends a lot of time on his computer and is a single dad. But I had it all wrong. Think pierced, edgy artist type and that is Alex before his daughter was born. So he is the hot single dad with an edge. Very different than I imagined but also hotter than I imagined. The major part of this story and Alex’s story is that he feels guilt about the mother of his child dying. She was an edgy artist too and they were not in love. But when she got pregnant he talked her into staying and so when she dies delivering his daughter he has enormous guilt. And that played lot into this story and why Alex has tried to be the best dad out there and sorta reformed from edgy artist. This is the story of him suffering through sleepless nights and teething pain and how Josh, his brother saves him. Josh finds Lauren and with no school during the summer Lauren decides to work for Alex and help him. This is there story and anything else I say might give this unique spin on a single dad romance away. I will say I have not been Alex’s dads fan until now.What a guy. He really was an enormous help to Alex and even Lauren and he stole all the scenes he was in. This was definitely light reading nd I really enjoyed the story. We get another chapter in the Hayley and Josh romance and I cannot wait for their book.

Stop with all the feels! I just can't even with Kylie's books. Every single one draws me right in I forget where I am, and lose track of time. How the hell does she do that?! Anyway, enough fangirling, back to the book... I was completely captivated with Alex. He was such a great father to his daughter, and my heart ached for all the guilt he harboured over Viv's mother's death. But then came along his saviour in the form of school teacher, Lauren. She didn't want to fall for Alex, he was completley off limits; he'd said so himself, but how can you stop yourself falling for somebody who is perfect for you? As usual, the book club ladies get u to their regualr antics, and Hailey and Josh STILL at loggerheads. Each book gets us closer to finding out what is going on with these two, and the journey there is more than worth the wait. Can't wait until the next book in the series!

Thuper and Daddy was the best. I have been fan of Kylie since the very first book but although I enjoyed Daisy story I believe Lauren and Alex romance was not only fun but had a hidden passion as well. The roles of Joe and even Josh to an extent played a part that was so Hailey it made it funny and more enjoyable. We can't count out Viv because that girl stole my heart before she stole Lauren's. The mask, the angel, and the Kei Kei dance. YES!!! Kylie portrayed a child at two like no other. It only took the little things for her. Although it took Alex a while to catch on and let go of his inner turmoil he still did what any single parent that was dealt his hand would do. His burden of grief and misunderstanding was pure and warranted. But his attempt of a bloom even made me swoon and a little damp. Pure perfection. I actually can honestly say that I can go for another dose of this couple. The banter, role playing, and companionship was worth every hour of reading and more.

The Campbells are a rambunctious clan. Good times, fiery personalities and tons of love are what the Campbells are all about, but beneath all the fun lies some turbulent emotions that need to be worked through. Formal Arrangement is Alex's turn to shine. This single dad has a little girl he adores, a family he loves and guilt that never seems to subside. From a tragic loss to the responsibilities that weigh him down, Alex just can't catch a break. Enter Lauren, nanny extraordinaire. Lauren lightens up his days and fills his heart with an emotion he refuses to acknowledge. Can he let go of the pain of his past to claim his Ms. Right? It's always a pleasure to read Kylie Gilmore. With sweet stories that are as moving as the characters are irresistible, it's obvious why she makes up at least half of my favorites list.

My new favorite book in this series!!!! As I've come to expect from Kylie, this book was extremely well-written, SMOKING HOT and sprinkled with laugh-out-loud moments . The characters were realistic and acted and spoke accordingly. I started this book and the next time I looked up it was four hours later and I hadn't even noticed! I was completely engrossed in the story. Now normally I'm not a fan of children in romances. Sometimes they aren't written well and subtract rather than add to the story. THIS child, however, was absolutely adorably hilarious and very well done. Another aspect I usually don't like reading about is the deceased significant other. But again, Kylie brilliantly used this dark spot to create a brightness that gave me n excellent sense of closure. Overall, I REALLY really really liked this story. I felt it was very well-rounded and, in my opinion, the best of the series so far. As a side note, similar to the other books in this series, Hailey and Josh continue to have their battle of wills. I am DYING to read their story, and Kylie does an excellent job of stringing me along with hot looks from Josh that hold the promise to rock Hailey's world. Can't Wait!!! (I received a copy of this book in consideration of an honest review)
