Single mom Sandy Walker came to Glenwood seeking a quiet, friendly place to raise her three children. No way was she looking for a walk on the wild side with notorious bachelor Kyle Haynes. So what if the impossibly sexy deputy enthralled her kids and made Sandy ache with desire? She needed a provider, not an adventurer.

For sixteen years, Kyle had been harboring a crush on...more

Have you ever read a book where you hated the heroine and wondered what the hero saw in her and why didn't he dump the shrew?Well, Father in Training is like that, I have enjoyed all the Haynes family books when I read them 3 years back but this one was the least good. Kyle is the youngest brother and was affected strongly by their mother walking on them, so for years he has vowed not to let anyone get the same opportunity.

When he was a teen he had a bad crush on 2 years older Sandy who never no...more
Sandy decided that it was time to change her life - so she moved from LA to a small town she spent her teen years in. She was looking for a change not only for herself but for her children as well. Since her husband died two years ago she was coping, but her children had some problems. So Glenwood it is. But when she got to her house the first person she met was Kyle, her high school boyfriend's little brother. And he's all grown up. If only she had the strength to resist him.

Kyle wasn't looking...more
Another book in the Haynes brothers series, this one is about Kyle and Sandy and Sandy's three children. I've read the others, all out of order, but each stands well on its own. They are all good enough that I'll re-read them in order next year.

This was a republication of one of Susan Mallery's backlist. The heroine is uptight, controlling, judgmental, and insecure. Ugh. The hero is a ladies man who has carried a torch for her since high school. Overall, the story was bland with most of the drama caused by the heroine flying off the handle and not giving anyone else a chance to talk. In addition, while I accepted the attraction between the two, I didn't see them getting to know each other at all, so the romance wasn't believable. The m...more
Sandy was absolutely the most annoying character I have ever read. I love Susan Mallery but my goodness Sandy was by far the worst character she's written. I loved Kyle and even I was screaming at him to drop her even though I enjoy happily ever afters. Two stars because it's Susan Mallery and Kyle was the best.
love me some Kyle, not so much Sandy and not only because she didn't se the wonderful in front of her. She was irritating all the way trough.
4* for Kyle
2* for Sandy
gives 3*
loved Kyle!
I didn't like #3 of this series as well as some of the others...Sandy was actually pretty irritating and Kyle was a little " too good to be true" to be believable. I got a little tired of Sandy jumping to conclusions and thinking the worst possible about Kyle. The ending with the kids watching was cute!!
Heroine is HORRIBLE. Can't figure out what the hero saw in her. Ugh the whole way through.
