About the Book:

Over-forty, single mom Tess Howland’s life is all about caring for other people. Indulging in a one night stand is just what she needs. She doesn’t expect to meet anyone she would introduce to her kids, especially not some rich playboy who acts like a big kid himself. Even if he keeps giving her the best sex of her life.
Millionaire Miles Prescott can’t get the sexy nurse he met at a fundraising gala out of his head. For the first time ever, he doesn’t want a woman with no-strings-attached. He wants everything—even it comes with a ready-made family with a woman in her forties. Suddenly, helping with homework doesn’t sound like the worst thing in the world, especially if it means being near Tess.
But what happens when he’s ready to step up and she says no?

Tess is a single mom of three kids. She has been divorced for a few years, yet never really dates. The only time she lets loose is once a year at the Saint Marks Gala. She works the crowd for funds for her department and then finds her one night of fun.

Miles is a bored playboy. He hates going to these fundraisers, especially since his father died a year ago. But tonight he must be strong and be there for his mother. Especially for this fundraiser. This was his father’s favorite fundraiser. So he will endure it and smile for his mother.

As Miles observes the room, he stops dead when his eyes land on a beautiful woman. As the night progresses Miles night improves. But all that changes when he wakes up alone in bed the next morning. No No that will not do.

When Miles tracks her down and offers to take her on a date, she says no. But no is not in Miles vocabulary. What was suppose to be one night turns into something that Tess is not ready to deal with.

This was such a fun and energetic read. The characters were wonderful. Tess herself is a very independent woman. She is so used to taking care of herself that she never has time for herself. Miles on the other hand is not the playboy that everyone makes him out to be. Even though she says no to him often, he never gives up.

Overall this book is a wonderful and fun Rom-Com. The characters are lovable and fun. I really enjoyed Miles perspective and how he tried to show he could fit into their lifestyle even though his is money. I also enjoyed the realization of the single mom angle. Sometimes people don’t understand what single mothers go through on a daily basis. It really gives us a clear picture. Great work incorporating real with fantasy.

If you are looking for a feel good romance with stubbornness, then this book is right up your alley. It is full of fun and witty banter. It has fun loving characters with a classic Cinderella vibe. So break out the wine, pick up this book and curl up for a good time.

Meet the Author:

Shannyn is an occasional English teacher, who also works as a part-time editor while raising her three kids. Even though she wrote from high school through college (mostly poetry), she’d never considered a career as an author. Writing fell by the wayside as she focused her energy on creating lesson plans and new and fabulous ways to torment her teen students. One group in particular dubbed her “The Torture Master,” a title she carried into motherhood. After the birth of baby number two, Shannyn resigned from teaching and fell in love with reading romance novels. She read so many books so quickly that her husband teased, “If you’re going to read so many damn books, why don’t you just write one?” So she did. That first book is safely buried on her hard drive, but the process set Shannyn on the path to where she is today. The 6-book O’Leary series has wrapped up, as well as 2 Hot & Nerdy new adult trilogies. She’s currently working on her next series. She is recovering from her Diet Coke addiction, fears putting her foot in her mouth on social media, and has a renewed appreciation for the bad girls of the world.
