If you're short on time and need a quick and sexy contemporary romance to pass the time, The Billionaire Single Dad by Mandy Baxter would be the book for you.
I give this novella 3 stars because overall, I enjoyed it. I liked the characters and the storyline. The plot is not anything new in the romance genre, but I think that the author did a good job at delivering the story and kept me entertained throughout so I can't complain much.
I liked that this romance was sweet and sexy at the same time without the unnecessary over the top drama and angst that so many romance novels have nowadays. For such a short story, I thought the characters had enough depth to keep me interested.
My reasoning for rating this 3 stars as opposed to a higher rating is because I felt that it was unbelievable at times. For example, Carter and Tess barely meets, then has amazing sex, starts dating officially after and a few weeks later, they are professing their love for one another with the "I love yous". Therefore, this was just unrealistic to me. I thought that the author just added that in there to "satisfy" the reader with a happily ever after. It just didn't feel right with me and it didn't fit with the story. Sometimes, I'm ok with happily for now vs. a happily ever after.
While I was initially hesitant about the single dad angle, Carter’s daughters played an integral part in how Carter and Tess come to meet. It made for a rather entertaining first encounter (at least for the reader) and despite their less than stellar beginning, it made for a good foundation upon which to build a friendship and more – genuine concern for Carter’s daughters. As this is a novella, the attraction and relationship unfold rather quickly, but with Carter being on a vacation of sorts and Tess just starting to build a new life in Texas, they spend enough time together that it doesn’t feel as rushed because we get to spend time with them as they get to know one another. Where the single dad aspect really came into play was when Carter’s brother takes the girls for an outing and overnight stay. This child-free time gave Carter and Tess the time they needed to investigate their physical attraction, and they were quite thorough in their endeavor. Wowser!
Yet despite their obvious compatibility both in bed and out, Carter won’t even entertain the idea of a relationship with Tess beyond their marathon bedroom session. It was as if he didn’t believe that the first woman he’d had any interest in since his wife’s death could be anything more than just a rebound. That he used his girls as an excuse for distance infuriated me on Tess’s behalf and made me want to smack Carter upside the back of the head. Now if you’ve read any of Baxter’s Billionaire’s Club books, then you know that everything works out in the end. But you’ll have to read The Billionaire Single Dad for yourself to find out what Carter must do to fix Tess’s broken heart and give them their happily ever after, and if you enjoy quick and steamy romances, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. I’m already looking forward to reading the next book in The Billionaire's Club: Texas Heartthrobs series because I can’t wait to see what Baxter has in store for The Billionaire Heartbreaker, Travis.
I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

The author gives you wonderful sweet characters that you can relate to along with wonderful supporting characters who tell it like it is. This is a fast read with a fast pace where you find friendship, love, laughter and need along with some very heated scenes. Carter might play football for the cowboys but he is really a down to earth man who puts family first. He isn’t looking for love or a one nightstand he just wants to raise his twins and give them a good life. When the lady moves in next door and her hot temper cuts him to the soul he takes a second look and finds he can’t walk away. He won’t give in to the passion his wife is still too much a part of him. I really liked Carter, I adored his twins and his brothers. All want what is best for this family and will push him to see them happy.
Tess doesn’t like Carter at first but he grew on her. Those twins of his take her heart and runs with it. She too isn’t looking for love but finds she can’t walk away from the hot man who makes her crazy. Tess is really down to earth and has no idea who Carter is. She is just taking time away from people to live a quite life and get over being betrayed by her ex. She is sweet, caring and loving who believes in helping.
The author gives you a well written story filled of pain, sorrow, starting over, fear, need, passion, and a HAE. You can feel Carters struggles of work, being a single father and doing what is best for all of them. You can feel his love for his dead wife and the struggles he has of moving on without her along with starting a new relationship. He always puts his girls first never wanting a woman to come into their lives not only leaving him but his girls. This really was a heart touching read that I couldn’t put down. I thought this was a delightful read that most will enjoy.
