The Single Dad by Abi Sabina: Book Review

  *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

Ryan needs a nanny for his daughter, and I need a job. So I do my best to convince him I’m exactly what he’s looking for. It’s a win-win.

The only problem? I may have a tiny crush on the hottie single dad. Not that he would ever see me like that—he’s grumpy, and well…I’m not.

We’re complete opposites in every way. Not to mention that he only smiles for his daughter, leaving me on the receiving end of his sighs.

Little by little, he starts to let his guard down, though. Turns out, the grump has a heart of gold. But falling for him might just break mine.

The Single Dad is a single dad rom-com with crackling chemistry, laughs, and heart. It's the second book in the It's Amor Series, but it can be read as a standalone.

*It does touch on the loss of a spouse and grief.

Abi Sabina writes sweet closed door romance full of swoon, sass, and humor. She traded in the big city life for small town living when she moved to Spain.

She hasn't wrangled herself a country boy yet, but she writes books based on charming heroes and small town charm. (And maybe throw in the city setting every so often.)

She loves coffee, country music, and the mountains. Her goal is to write stories that make you feel, smile, and cheer on love.

The Single Dad is the second book in the It's Amor series. While you might see some familiar characters if you've read book one, this could definitely be enjoyed as a standalone without any issues as well. 

Ooh, what is it about a single dad that makes a romance that much sweeter!? And when he's a grump with pretty much everyone BUT his daughter!? Yes, please! This book was the absolute sweetest! I immediately adored Ryan and Sara. Yes, he was a bit of a grump, with good reasoning--- but she is just that bit of Sunshine he needs to balance him out and to make him believe in taking chances on love again. Their chemistry was really sweet, and I loved the relationship they both had with his daughter as well. While grief (loss of a spouse) is an important part of the story, it was balanced well with the laughs to keep it from feeling too heavy. There is an age gap, which isn't always my favorite--- but at 11 years, it wasn't too extreme, and I thought it was done very well. As much as I love the main characters, I also find myself loving many of the side characters too, which has me looking forward to reading what comes next in the series! 

The Single Dad is a closed-door romance with nothing beyond kisses. There was some minor language, but it was VERY minimal (only two instances).
