Publisher's Summary

Rising star Zack Grantham has been stuck in a downward spiral of grief that has put his career on hold. Back on the road with the Carolina Cold Fury, still crippled by emotional baggage, and now a single dad, he's in need of some serious help with his son. But while the nerdy new nanny wins his son's heart, Zack isn't sure that he's ready for a woman's touch - even after getting a glimpse of the killer curves she's hiding under those baggy clothes.
Kate Francis usually keeps men like Zack at a distance. Though his athlete's body is honed to perfection, he refuses to move on with his life - and besides, he's her boss. Still, the sparks between them are undeniable, tempting Kate to turn their professional relationship into a personal one. But before she makes a power play for Zack's wounded heart, Kate will have to open him up again and show him that love is worth the fight.

One of my favorite characters in the series

Any additional comments?

The entire book was great. I know some people did not like the fact that the main character was not 'completely' in love with the mother of his child but that happens. The fact that he had a conscious and was not ready to be with someone made me love him more. The heroine was great. She understood what the hero was going through and did not want to push him. I am so glad that the hero realized that she was what he has been waiting for all his life and when for it. I was starting to get a bit worried since he waiting so long. But it was worth the wait.

4 Baby Daddy Stars

I’m slowly making my way through the series, I’ve been skipping around the books because I’m just crazy like that. I had to read Zack’s story because he’s *GASP* a SINGLE DAD! Yup, my heart just swoon a little and I got a big smile on my face.

I did the audio version. I really like listening to these books on audio because it’s really light and easy to listen to. I feel like I can stop at any moment and pick it up at any time. I also love dual narration, so whenever there’s a male narrator too, I’m all over that. I have no complaints when it comes to the audio.

Zack is a single dad. His baby mama died in a car accident and Zack has major guilt over this. He wants to be the best father he can be for his child, but it’s hard raising a kid on his own. He needs a nanny for when he’s away on the ice.

Kate is a sweet girl. She’s the type of girl you want to take care of your kids and bake them cookies. She loves Zack’s son and working in a household with a hot hockey player isn’t a bad job. Zack is really attracted to Kate. Kate isn’t your typical girl, she wears baggy clothes, no make-up and has eye glasses. But that doesn’t stop Zack from admiring her, even though he knows it’s really wrong to start anything with the nanny.

I really like the premise of the story. I love a single-parent book and I loved that Kate and Zack live in the same household. You can really feel the tension between the two and you just want them to get together. Zack’s past holds him back and it was a little hard to get through sometimes. He pushes Kate back A LOT and even the more frustrating part is that Kate allows it.

I just wanted to scream at Kate that she could do better. I enjoyed having the previous character in the book and the future characters as well. It’s like one big happy family.
Overall, it’s a nice audio book, it was a bit frustrating at times, so the tension is high, but the storyline is good.
