Book Description

***USA Today Bestselling Author***

The Single Dad:
Ex-military man Derrick Richmond. Solitary and satisfied...until little Timmy is dropped into his lap and Derrick has 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 has plenty of love to give, if only someone would notice.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars The Single Daddy Club: Derrick, Book 1 by Donna Fasano December 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

Donna once again takes a "broken" family unit and fixes it in a delightfully entertaining way! This trilogy promises to be a touch spicier than previous books, very enjoyable reading!

4.0 out of 5 stars Derrick and Anna's Story December 14, 2012
By Fredlet
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Single Daddy Club: Derrick is the first of three books about bachelor friends supporting each other as they are raising children on their own. Derrick is raising his godson Timmy, becoming his guardian after his cousin's death. Anna, Timmy's kindergarten teacher, has been hurt before and wants to avoid romantic relationships. After a heated discussion during a conference to discuss the behavior problems Timmy is displaying in class, Anna reluctantly agrees to help Derrick with some parenting lessons.
Donna Fasano has created another sweet romance filled with conflicts, misunderstandings, and passion. I enjoyed watching Derrick become confident in handling Timmy's manipulative testing, which leads to stabilizing his godson's life. Anna's fear of becoming involved with Derrick to keep her secret safe and trying to avoid her growing feelings for him were agonizing to witness. The situations with the students in the classroom setting were like many I have had while teaching. The children's dialogue was realistic, witty, and honest. Donna's descriptive language paints vivid pictures of her characters' feelings, and draws you into the story. I am looking forward to reading Jason and Reece's stories as they search for their happily-ever-after.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes your heart glow! December 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great story by Donna Fasano! January 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
As with all Donna Fasano's books, I really loved this story. This is the first in her 'Single Daddy Club' trilogy. I enjoyed this one so much that I couldn't wait to read the remaining two books in the series. (I finished them throughout the holidays.) I usually don't read all the books in a series one right after another, however, these were so well-written that I wanted to find out what happened in these men's lives.

I really enjoyed watching Derrick's character learn and grow into a better man, father, and person in general. The situations that Derrick and his son faced are all true to life and realistic. This story is well worth the time and money. The series on a whole is well-written and I liked the way all the guys lives were woven into the three books. I have found that I never go wrong with this author's writings and I always look forward to her newest stories. Thank you, Ms. Fasano!
