Editorial Reviews

Review

--- Ben Burgess Jr. has captured every possible aspect of fatherhood while tackling bad habits and tough choices. Initially, the main character, Nick, relies on everybody else for help with his daughter and soon takes them all for granted, but when they all desert him, he is forced to wake up and fully face the situation he is in. The writing style of Daddy's Girl is so fluent and easy to absorb, painting the perfect picture in my head of the events in play. The sequence of events was brilliantly delivered, starting with the panic of a premature birth, then how he had actually met the mother of his child - a woman who is married to a mobster and wanted to get back at her husband after he had cheated on her - before continuing to Lynn's childhood and Nick's realization that he is solely responsible for his daughter's well-being and safety. Every one of the characters was complex, yet believable. I fully enjoyed reading Daddy's Girl and recommend it to mature readers who enjoy inspirational tales with a full spectrum of drama, humor, heartbreak, tragedy, and self-sacrifice. ***Reviewed by Rosie Malezer for Readers' Favorite
----Ben Burgess Junior captures a part of that unique essence in this story of love and fatherhood changing a man's life. Daddy's Girl is a look at New York. It is a look at America. But mostly it's a look at the power of love. A great look at modern urban life. *** Reviewed By Ray Simmons for Readers' Favorite
--- Daddy's Girl is a powerful testament to the incredible joy of fatherhood, but it is even more than that. It is a powerful song about life, love, and growing up, a story laced with many life lessons on love, perseverance, and the strength of purpose. Ben Burgess Jr is a good storyteller who knows how to absorb readers into his world view and send them back into life thinking about his characters. I loved everything about this book. From the moment Nick is woken up from stupor by Vicky's words through a phone conversation, "I'm about to have this baby..." up to the brilliant finish, I was drawn in completely, fully captivated. I highly recommend this book as a fun and enlightening read. I couldn't put it down. ***Reviewed By Ruffina Oserio for Readers' Favorite
