Alpha Turns Daddy!

Genre:  Sports Romance, Contemporary Romance

Book Length (Est.): 226 pages

Book Description/Synopsis: 

“Katie Rose writes sexy, skilled sports heroes who know how to treat a woman right!” raves Wendy S. Marcus. Now the award-winning author of the Bad Boys of Baseball series introduces a team of soccer stars who score on and off the pitch.

New Jersey Hurricanes striker Logan Hart lives for the grind of training, the adrenaline of competition, and all the perks of the road—until his ex hands him a baby and tells Logan to raise her on his own. He’s eager to pass this bundle of joy into more capable hands and get back to his hard-playing, hard-partying ways. But when a beautiful, blond drill sergeant of a nanny turns Logan’s life upside down, he sets a new goal: winning her heart.

Isabella Bennett takes pride in teaching the rich and famous how to become loving families. Her no-nonsense style is just what Logan and his crying, copper-haired cutie need. So why can’t she get the image of Logan’s tanned, muscular body out of her head? Isabella’s here to whip a new father into shape, not fall for a sexy ladies’ man. But their chemistry is too tantalizing to ignore, much like the temptation to trust someone with her deepest secrets—and embrace a loving family all her own.

Mindy’s Review: 

*I received this book free from Netgalley on behalf of Random House Publishing – Loveswept in exchange for an honest review*

Logan Hart is a famous soccer player for the New Jersey Hurricanes. Imagine his surprise when a woman he has a one night stand with just drops a three month old baby on him. Logan has no idea how to raise a child, much less the time with his busy career. With his little sisters help he calls an agency that specializes in the best Nanny’s that money can provide. His first mission is to find the little girl’s mother that has just up and disappeared so he can get back to his life.

Isabella Bennett specializes in infant care. She has a non-sense attitude when it comes to dealing with the rich and famous parents. She will do her best at helping the child thrive but she will not be left with the child to raise them. Meeting Logan for the first time she is not blind to all of his handsome features but she realizes real quick that he is trouble and she needs to keep her heart far away from him.

Isabella has full intentions on making Logan become a hands on father. Although she runs into hurdles at first she believes she can make him see that he can have his career and daughter at the same time. What she does not count on is the look in his eyes, his hard body and the feelings that seem to surface when they are alone together.

This was a very sweet read. I love when babies are the main focus of a strong alpha man. It’s like turning a man into putty with fatherhood. Not to mention that Isabella is exactly what he wants in his life as well.  Isabella has secrets that might just break the deal but this strong man just might be a very understanding man.
