“Sexy, heartfelt–did I mention sexy? With the perfect touch of the forbidden, Melanie Harlow has outdone herself with single dad Mack and Frannie’s story!”
— Ilsa Madden-Mills, Wall Street Journal bestselling author
Irresistible, an all-new fun and swoony standalone from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow, is available now!
I’m a full-time single dad to three daughters and CFO at Cloverleigh Farms. I don’t have time to fall in love—I’m too busy trying to run a business, keep the red socks out of the white laundry, and get the damn pillowcases on without owing a dollar to the swear jar.
Sure, Frannie Sawyer is beautiful and sweet, but she’s twenty-seven, the boss’s daughter, and my new part-time nanny—which means she’s completely off-limits. It’s bad enough I can’t stop fantasizing about her, what kind of jerk would I be if I acted on the impulse to kiss her?
(Exactly the kind of jerk you’re thinking.)
Actually, I’m worse than that—because I didn’t stop with a kiss, and now I can’t stay away. She makes me feel like myself again. She reminds me what it’s like to want something just for me. She’s everything I ever needed, but nothing I ever imagined.
I’m a former Marine. I should have had the strength to resist her from the start.
But I didn’t. And now I have to choose between the life I want and the life she deserves.
Even if it means giving her up.
This wasn’t a bad book. It wasn’t phenomenal, either. I LOVED Mack’s three daughters. Their intervention with him, and the subsequent “go win back the girl” scene were hilarious. Mack’s self-important, “I’m older so I know what you want better than you do” attitude really got on my nerves. He was an amazing dad, though. Frannie may have been ten years younger, but in some ways she was the more mature one in that she was willing to take the risk.
Mack and Frannie were good together, though. He was the support she needed to follow her dream, and she helped him to lighten up and to learn how to enjoy himself again.
After all of Mack’s buildup about it, though, I felt a little let down that there was no fallout – good or bad – with Frannie’s parents about their relationship. He was so concerned because of both their age difference and the fact that he’s their employee, but it was completely brushed over.
