The Single Dad’s Redemption was a really enjoyable story. Keeley and Connor’s acquaintance that grew into friendship and then more was well written. The author did a great job of making me want them to end up together even though their circumstances and Connor’s situation made that likelihood seem impossible.
There were some characters in this story that provided great frustration and added tension that made Connor’s path he must take even harder. Todd, one of the local deputies, continually angered me and made me want Keeley to be able to prove that Connor was honorable. Connor’s ex-wife was also quite a problem. These complications made the sweet parts of the story even richer.
I definitely enjoyed this book and recommend it.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
