THE FAMILY MAN
Releasing July 5th, 2016
TEMPTATION NEVER TASTED SO SWEET...
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 is a sweet romance. It centers around single dad Griffin and baker Beth. Beth is hesitant in giving into her crush on Griffin. She finally gives in and begins a romance with Griffin. You can tell that they both are holding back a bit. Griffin because he's trying to figure out how to manage romance and his life. Beth is holding back because she is trying to figure out where she fits in his life. When an incident happens and gets both of them running scared, they are able to finally step back and evaluate their relationship. They finally see how much they mean to each other.
I was unsure of their relationship at first. I felt that Beth had become a glorified babysitter and Griffin was in a relationship with because it was comfortable. When everything goes down, you see that they truly care for each other. Their relationship is genuine and stronger than before.
The author did a great job with this book. She is able to create a world that is supported by all of the characters, not just a few. This gives the reader a more dynamic story, not something that is one dimensional. It is an enjoyable beach read.
