What is forever wonderful about Rose's characters is the fact that they act as adults should. No matter what issues they may face both alone and together, sure they may stumble and fall a bit as they try and figure out how to make the other person theirs, but they always remain respectful and solid in their thoughts and feelings. Matteo as the protective single father never waivers in his adoration for the adorable Lauren. He'd move heaven and earth to make sure she was well taken care of and happy. Allowing Melanie to be Lauren's new nanny was a huge step, especially since it wasn't lost on him how attractive and sexy his new hire was. Their interactions both at Speakeasy and now at his home are full of joy and much-needed laughter as both are still nursing broken hearts. And yet it feels as if Melanie was always meant to be a part of their lives and I just loved how easy she fits into their close-knit world.
There is a sweet ease in reading this well-written book as the ultimate HEA is there for the taking. I enjoyed every minute of their love affair and how much they truly cared for each other even after only knowing each other for a short time. The way Matteo and Melanie simply 'get' each other is a delight to witness and as those last words were read, I couldn't help but smile huge as they know they have found their forever.
A great respite from heavier reads, Safeguard is a wonderful addition to the Speakeasy Taproom series and is perfect for the last lazy days of summer.
4 huge stars!!!
In Safeguard though it’s about a single father. Matteo and what a wonderful man he is. Dreamy and most importantly a dedicated and loving father. Exploding ovaries. Check! Man how I fell hard and fast for that man.
Melanie is just the woman for Matteo and it definitely works in her favor that they’re working side by side at the bar Speakeasy and also helps babysitting his amazing and hilarious daughter Lauren.
There’s no question about the chemistry. It’s palpable and tantalizing. Every little look between the two of them or them being around one another only made it go from a flicker to a strong burn.
Melanie and Matteo have to navigate through this new relationship with them both having experienced pain and loss in the past.
There’s a treat for the readers who have read the Ocean Cove series. In particular No Reservations.
After finishing Safeguard I can safely say that Stephanie Rose delivered on the single parent trope.
Not only a smoking hot dad who loves his little girl but also a heroine who does too. Two mature characters who communicate when necessary and doesn’t hold back.
Safeguard is low on angst and drama but full of feels and romance which I have come to expect from Rose. Then add some smoking sexy times. Yup. I couldn’t ask for more.
Safeguard is the perfect book if you need to escape for a couple of hours or more. I fell head over heels for Matteo and Melanie.
5 M&M stars
I am clearly a mood reader, and I stay in the racks with my favorite authors. There are lots of choices where authors branch out to write in another's universe. Truth bomb: I avoid them not because of the author I love, but lack of time to involve myself to read the original world ahead. BUT give me a blurb with a single dad, adorable daughter, heroine ready for a change, stir in should they/shouldn't they with a 1-click author AND COUNT ME IN.
Rest assured, Stephanie Rose, drops in easter eggs from not only the world but her own stories. However, she does this in artful storytelling that I recognize them but don't feel i am missing out. Also instead of pull/push so often in the trope, the author weaves the theme as should/shouldn't. The readers recognize the hearts of the main characters are ready, and we readers get the deliciousness of watching the fall.
Things I Loved:
-Matteo is a yummy hero who is protective with a heart so big beneath his commanding presence.
- Melanie is relatable heroine I love
- Lauren is frickin adorable
- Sexual tension gives into yes they should
Things to consider:
- this is where i give the warning “ its part of the series and best enjoyed yada yada” ahhh, not this time. Seriously, there are probably easte eggs I missed as not invested in the original world. The story has connections but is told in such a beautiful way to clearly stand on its own.
Are you ready for a love story to enjoy and get lost in? Need to watch the family fall in love, root for the HEA, and just - enjoy? Look no further, click on this story and be prepared for romance goodness.
Recommendation: Buy it

The characters were wonderful done and their relationship is not an easy one but a worked for it and successful one.
I personally rarely like reading single parents books but this one was great and if you enjoy them, then look no further and give it a try.
