Review: Play Dates by Maggie Wells

For single parents, life is often more diapers and daycare dilemmas than dating. But for three dads going solo, a little flirting can lead to a whole lot more than a fling . . .

Colm Cleary lost his wife just moments after his son Aiden’s birth, and it’s been just the two of them ever since. Dating is his very last priority—until he spots gorgeous Monica Rayburn on the playground with her little girl. Suddenly finding a woman sympathetic to the demands of single parenthood seems like a great idea—especially if they agree to a no-pressure, no-strings date . . .

Dazzled by the hot “Saturdaddy” who asks her out, Monica doesn’t get around to mentioning that little Emma is her niece. She’s in commodities, not children. A gambler to the bone, she’s going to take a chance on an adult evening with Colm—and worry about the details later. But when their casual connection deepens into something more solid, the truth will have to come out—and both Colm and Monica will have to throw caution to the wind to hold on to a future together . .

Terri's Thoughts

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  Thank you!

It is hard to provide a review on this story as it was so short so I am going to review a little differently from how I normally do.  Instead I am just going to jot down random thoughts that come to mind after reading this story.

1.  As mentioned, it is pretty short.  This was a good thing as I needed something to read that was not going to be a time commitment.

2.  The story is very steamy.  The bedroom (or hallway) scenes left little to the imagination.  Any couple looking to spice up their love live should read this.  Seriously it was that hot.  If youlike your stories a little or a lot on the "dirty" side then this is the read for you

3.  Combining point one and two means that the majority of the story is the physical relationship between Monica and Colm.  The rest of the plot gets crammed in to the remaining pages.

4.  Aiden was adorable.  As someone who is a lot like Monica and may be missing the nurturing gene, I loved this kid!

5.  I'm not sure but since there are three Saturdaddies, I would expect that we should see a couple more stories to make this a series.

Overall, a short and hot hot hot story.
