"Sweet, funny, romantic and oh so very sexy! Prepare to swoon mightily." -SAWYER BENNETT, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Cold Fury Hockey series

Between boot camp and two TOD's in Iraq, my buddies Max, Gavin and me have been through some serious hell. So the last thing I ever expected was to find the biggest challenge of my life back home.

My girlfriend died. I couldn't even attend her funeral, let alone tell her goodbye or that I'm sorry I wasn't there like I should've been.

But she left me a gift. The best and scariest one I could've ever asked for. One I didn't think I could handle...until the day I saw her tiny blues looking up at me in that airport. Chloe.

Now here I am, raising my baby girl-with the help of my two best friends. Things couldn't be better. Until she walked into my life.

All I wanted was a nanny. Someone to take care of my girl when I couldn't. What I didn't count on was Addison, the brown-eyed temptress with a body of sin, and everything I didn't need, but suddenly wanted.

Collin left behind the woman he loved to become a marine and serve his country, little did he know he was also leaving a child behind too. While he is fighting overseas his girlfriend lost her life, and it killed him to not be able to attend her funeral and say goodbye, but duty called. Once he arrived home he got the surprise of his life, he had a nine month old daughter waiting for him, which meant he had a whole new mission ahead of him, being a single, first time father, which was completely overwhelming, lucky for him though he had the support of his friends. Caring for his daughter is his number one priority, as well as work, and keeping a roof over their head, and for the most part they are getting along fine, but he's finally ready to admit they might need a little help. So, he reluctantly decides to search for a nanny to step in and help out a little when he can't be with his daughter, and he finds Addison, she soon becomes the perfect fit for their busy and sometimes chaotic lives. And before long things start to feel more than perfect, and he finds himself wanting to make Addison a permanent fixture in their lives... but is he really ready to risk his heart again? This was my first experience with Ms. Van Fleet's work, and I have got to say that I was extremely impressed with what I discovered between the pages of this captivating read. I love stories that come equipped with strong alpha male characters, and Collin was about as alpha as they come, he had my heart from the get go!! The chemistry brewing between these two was evident from their first encounter, and the anticipation of them finally letting everything around them go for just a moment and finally giving into their desires had me dangling on the edge of my seat... and bracing for one heck of a explosion...and oh my was it well worth the wait! I seriously loved everything about this one, it had everything you could possibly want in a story; an addictive story line sure to give you the feels, well crafted characters with smoldering chemistry, and plenty of toe curling romance that will leave you in dire need of a fan!! Highly recommend!! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this title.

Great A great beginning to this series of books. It makes you realize that finding love is not always easy. But the writing pills you in.

3.5 stars This was a fun, entertaining read with some sweet and sexy mixed in. I liked the chemistry of the main characters in the beginning and the animosity between them as well. I loved the Three Men and a Baby feel the story had. That was great! I loved the male bonding and camaraderie between Collin and his friends. I thought this was a light read and the writing was really good. It was fast paced and had good progression with some ups and downs. The descriptions were good but sometimes the flow was a bit off for me. I enjoyed the first half more than the second, for some reason I wasn’t enjoying the main characters as much. There’s a lot of back and forth tension that got to be a bit much for me but I did enjoy the emotion of it all. Overall I though it was really good read. One of those stories that's entertaining, fun, and easy but I didn't have a real sense of urgency to finish. It was good and I enjoyed it but I wasn't completely captured. I did like all the guys and thought it was a great introduction to a series making me curious about the next two books. All in all a great, enjoyable read. Cute and fun!

I ripped through this sweet, sexy, emotional read from Heather Van Fleet! Oh Collin... sigh... he's a bossy pants, ex-military, emotionally struggling, rugby playing, single-father hottie. When sexy Addison, also troubled by her past, takes a job as his nanny, she sparks something in him that he hasn't felt for a long time. I loved this book. I can't wait for the next in the series.

This was the first book I've read by this author. The blurg intrigued me and I had to wonder if it was going to be anything like the movie I loved growing up, Three Men and a Baby. Max, Collin and Gavin do have some moments, but it's not quite that. These three men are home from the Marines and are raising Collin's baby, Chloe. When he hires a nanny, the feisty girl from the bar walks in and he knows he is toast! Addison is hot and so feisty. She can dish it and take it. They have a battle of wills for a while, but both succomb to the feelings they've had for each other since the beginning. I had a little harder time with the first half of the book. It seemed to me like Addison and Collin meeting and her going to work for him took a really long time. Once Addie started working there the book was an easier read for me. I had a harder time relating to Addie because she was so tough and guarded. Once I understood her story a little bit better I could see where she was coming from. I adored Collin and his support system. Gavin and Max were awesome and I'm hoping they get their stories told as was as Lia who I think is destined to be with Max. Really good read and I enjoyed it.

Help is something we all need but are afraid to ask for. So what happens when a soldier with attitude has the rug pulled out from under him? He gets a nanny? Collin is a newly minted single dad whose had his share of hard knocks. A war took away some of his soul, tragedy left him with a broken heart but one little lady is on the verge of putting the pieces back in place. With a great group of friends and a beautiful baby girl rooting him on, Collin may just get another chance at love. If he can open his heart and convince the woman of his fantasies to risk her heart on him. There is an emotional roller derby going on in this story but the single dad falling for his daughter was a weakness I couldn't pass on.

Not a big fan of the hero having career aspirations of law enforcement meanwhile using his fists at the drop of a hat. Real men exercise control and are way sexier.
