Book Description

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?

5.0 out of 5 stars Super start to The Daddy School Series March 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I read The Daddy School series years ago when it first came out. When I came upon it in ebook, I had to share how well written and witty the story is. Judith Arnold always writes interesting romances with touches of humor that tug at your heart when you least expect it. Jamie and Allison's story fulfills that promise. Sexy and fun, Jamie will steal your heart. And you'll be rooting for Allison to change her mind and give him a shot. Don't miss this first in the series. It's a winner!

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and wonderful May 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wasn't sure what to expect from this book, certainly not the funny and wonderful
book that it turned out to be. I found Jamie to be humorous,warm and very lovable. That he saw all of Allison's wonderful qualities and inner beauty immediately speaks to his intelligence. I loved the way the sparks flew around them. Add a tiny two week old baby, two great friends, one mouthy grandma and the result is one great read. I really, really liked this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hated the heroine November 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story had the potential for being a great book. I loved the humor that the author gave the hero. I thought he was a great guy. He discovers a baby on his deck, a note saying she was the result of a few days in the islands with what he thought was a pretty nice gal but in reality was a skank. She lied about her name, her address, and her phone number. He never questions that the baby might not be his. He takes her in and sets out to give her a good life and to be as good a father as he knows how to be. He is willing to learn. Of course, this little girl turns his life upside down.

Then he meets a baby nurse from the local hospital. What a bitch. Right away she judges him to be less than worthless because he had sex with a woman while on vacation and even tho he used protection she gets pregnant. Now, remember he never questions that the baby may not be his. He is trying to get some professional advise on how to handle a 2 week old baby. There is never a lot of scorn for a woman that would go off and leave a 2 week old baby on a guy's deck not knowing if he was at home, taking weather in to consideration, etc. Just him for having sex with this woman. Oh, like he is the first guy to have sex while on vacation.

So, he has marks against him because of this deed. NEVER is he given any credit for taking this infant in, trying to take care of it, buying it everything it needs, not wanting to report it to police for fear they will take the baby and put it into foster care. He doesn't even want to do a DNA because if he isn't the father she will become part of the overloaded system and who know what will happen to her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book June 26, 2013

This was a lovely read, along the lines of a Harlequin romance. This was a tame one to read also cute with the baby factor. Nice read. First time I've read this author but not the last.

2.0 out of 5 stars I just gave up May 16, 2013
By Eileen
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read a little half of this book and my eyes kept glazing over. I wanted to smack Allison because she is a judgemental shrew who I kept wanting to smack. Plus for being a nurse was even harder to believe. Because you have to have compassion and be non judgemental of people's behavior. So I gave up on reading it. The reason I gave this two stars it was well edited and it did have a decent flow to the writing. Just a horrible story

5.0 out of 5 stars great story September 24, 2014
By wandas
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just loved this book. Such a welcome change from the usual romance novel ' billionaire playboy meets his match'. The idea of a single swinging bachelor not only loving this little bundle he finds on his porch but he really wants to be a great dad and do everything right. I . .loved Jamie and Allison and her mother is quite a character. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a feel good story that proves loving a child trumps any other emotions we may have and how life changing it is to become a parent. Can't wait to read the next book in the series. Read this, you'll be glad you did.

2.0 out of 5 stars Holier than Thou Heroine November 18, 2013
By ckwa
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've never had a heroine I disliked quiet as much as I disliked Allison....aka "Allison the perfect". I loved Jamie and honestly thought he deserved someone who was not constantly feeling superior to him in her own mind. The premise for the story was great and I had high hopes that I would agree with all the positive reviews but before the middle of the book I was wanting to just put it aside and forget it......However, like most books, I muddled through. I seriously did not like Allison and could not see how any man would have continued to pursue her.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice concept
The Daddy School is a great idea and the book is okay. A little weak on character depth and even romance, but it still makes for a good read. Solid three but not quite four stars.
