Dr. Single Dad by Louise Bay - ARC Review

Unexpected fatherhood, a newborn daughter and a nanny in the next bedroom he can't stop fantasizing about.

When a one-night stand announces I just became a father to a baby girl, my world is thrown into turmoil.

My choice: single fatherhood or sign adoption papers.

The decision is easy.

Within hours, I'm on a plane to collect my daughter.

I’m in over my head. I barely know one end of a baby from the other. Luckily, I have the perfect plan. I’ll hire live-in help, have limited involvement with the kid, and keep my life just the same as it’s always been.

I finally find a nanny who lives up to my exacting standards. But the only problem is, every time I look at her, the future I thought I wanted starts to crumble.

Nothing in my life is going according to plan… and the wriggling poo machine in my arms is unexpectedly worming her way into my heart.

Life was ordered and logical until I got myself two roommates and started falling in love with both of them.

For some reason, even though the premise of this story feels familiar, it also feels different.

I think I really liked the idea that Dax had to bond with and learn to love his daughter and, while he was doing that, Eira.

Without getting into spoilers, the story put Dax into fatherhood in a way that was not expected for him, and I liked getting to know him as he figured out what to do next. I liked the idea that he knew he was doing the right thing, but needed a little time to figure out that the right thing was also what he wanted to be doing.

I liked that. It made this single parent story feel different and like it wasn't a story I have read before, just with different characters. I liked that, I liked that it made the story feel new in a way.

I also enjoyed Dax and Eira and the way that relationship was handled as it progressed. It worked well, and I believed in the attraction between them, but I also found that I believed in them as a couple for the long term.

I enjoyed and recommend this title.
