When life hands lemons to Beth Beverley, she makes mouthwatering lemon squares. Mostly because they're coveted by the sexy single dad who owns Belmont's most popular coffee shop. But that's where her crush on Griffin has to end. Her sweet treats are selling like crazy cakes in his shop, and she doesn't mix business with pleasure. Too bad his sinful smile has her flirting with the idea of forever.
Griffin Hall definitely needs to keep his eyes--and his hands--off Beth. Since he's traded in late-night gigs and partying for bedtime stories with his little girl in his arms, he doesn't have time for anything else. So why does Beth's big heart and easy way with his daughter make him finally feel alive again? But there's a little secret Beth doesn't know, something he can't bear to tell her . . .
The Family Man came to me at the right time when I was stuck with what kind of book I wanted to get sucked into and so glad it was this one. After reading The Wedding Date by Kelly Eadon I just knew that I this series was going to be one I would remember for a long time.
Beth makes the best muffins, but she also teaches children theatre and can sow. She is a woman of many talents and while things weren't always this way she is comfortable with how things are going. Beth has been selling her goodies to coffee shop owner Griffin for sometime and crushing hard on him comes free. After Beth learns that her feelings aren't one sided she takes the plunge with the one man she has been attracted too but Griffin comes with some baggage from his past and a daughter that needs to get all his attention.
I thought Beth and Griffin were an ideal romance couple. There were so many things I just loved about both their characters. Beth was fun and while she dabbled in a few things for work I never found her boring. I loved that Griffin was written as a single father, I thought he was smart and a wonderful father but sometimes he needed grownup time and Beth was perfect for that! They both were well written and very likable from the very beginning.
I enjoyed how the romance started to bloom between the two main characters and enjoyed it even more when they took their time and not rushed into anything. It made the story believable especially with Griffin being a single father.
This story had just enough humor and just enough conflict to keep me reading along. I swear there were times I wanted more and more but was happy with how it was turning out. I just didn't want it end. The steamy scenes were just right and really liked that it was a focus during the story but it helped show that their relationship was coming along.
The Family Man just happens to be witty and adorable and I highly recommended for those who love a good romance with a cast of characters that could make you laugh and fill you up with plenty of emotions. Funny and heartwarming, this is must read for romance lovers. Eadon is a author to watch out for in the future!
