This is my first time reading this author and honestly, it wasn’t what I expected. The story wasn’t as good as I hoped it would be, yet there was something about it that kept pulling me back to the book every time I started to lose interest.

Superstar quarterback, Carter Christensen, is a single dad. It had been over two years since his wife died, but he still couldn't move on with his life. He had never gone on a date and had become celibate since then. He had devoted most of his time and e

My Eglish review

I enjoyed all the short volumes of this series and I was curious to discover the history of the last brother. Unlike the others, Carter is a widower raising two little girls. This is a very difficult job for a man who is not accustomed to this and who expected to raise his children with the woman of his life before fate took her. This is why, he still lives with her mind at his side. His life will change completely when, during some holidays, he meets with Tes

I wasn't aware that this was a novella when I started. As I've said before, I've read novella's that have read like a full length book. This one did not. The "love" between Carter and Tess happened WAY to fast and was quite unbelieveable to me. For a man still grieving the death of his wife two years ago, falling in love after a week and a half is just ridiculous to me. No. No. No.

Plus, Carter is kinda a grumpy asshole to ever
I have fast become a fan of Mandy Baxter's Billionaire stories and " The Billionaire Single Dad" was no different.
This novella was a quick read, but did not leave you wanting for anything. sure their was insta- love, adorable twins, an appreciative single woman, with a bad experience in her past. Oh, and of course one hunky billionaire , but what I love the most about Ms baxter's billionaires is that the money is not everything, they do not flaunt it to get attention and for that matter would p

The Billionaire Single Dad is a slow sexy burn that leads to a HEA for all involved.

Carter and Tess is a couple that tugs at your heart strings. They both have been alone for a while. Tess because she was cheated on and Carter because his wife died two years ago from cancer. Carter is alone with his twin five-year-old twin daughters and Tess is licking her wounds from the breakup with her asshole ex.

They meet one weekend when Carter brings th

Carter, brother number two, is just as amazing as brother Nate. Yes, it's a little unrealistic that he would fall in love in a week after grieving for wife for two years, but it's fiction. And I loved it. Tess was perfect and a little relationship shy which I like is just what Carter needed. Now let's go see how great twin brother Travis is...
This was a no for me. I didn't like the characters and the way the book is written. There was almost no action and no chemistry between them. please don't waste your time with it
While this novella has events clipping along in a compressed time frame, it had all the fun components I enjoy for a sizzling, cute romance. A sexy hero, sweet heroine, and comic relief provided by said hero’s two adorably mischievous munchkins..what’s not to like?!

Opening your heart isn’t always easy but it’s always best to try 4.5 stars

Carter Christensen is still caught up in the grief of losing his wife to cancer almost two years ago. He’s a Dallas Cowboy quarter back coming off of a less than stellar season and raising his twin daughter alone. Needing a much needed break he takes them to the lake house that has been in his family for years. There are many good memories tied up in it both with his wife as well as his family so

I was really looking forward to this one because I love single dads but this story fell a little flat for me.

Carter is a single dad of twins and lost his wife two years ago. Although he might finally be ready to move on he is still confused on what he wants and what will be good for his girls. He decides since football season is over and the girls have a break he will take them to the cabin where he meets his new next door neighbor Tess.

I received a copy of this book through NetGalley from St. Martin's Press for an honest review. Several days ago I read the Christmas novella about Nate (brother to the hero for this book, Carter) so it was fresh in my mind and I remember it being ok. I did like how it set up for his 3 other brothers and reading their stories. I liked this one more than the first and would give it a 3.5 rating.

Taking care of two rowdy girls had been difficult for Carter ever since his wife died of cancer. It’s been two years and in that time, Carter feels as if he has been regressing instead of making some progress in his life.

This second offering in the Billionaire Club series is more a novella than a full length romance read and focuses on Carter, NFL Football Player/Widower/Single Dad.

Widowed 2 years ago, he is taking time to reconnect with his 5 year old twin daughters. According to his girls, he needs a lot of help in the daddy department. Enter Tess, new neighbor and recently single due to a cheating boyfriend. Tess is also still licking her wounds...and

More a novella than anything but I enjoyed the heck out of it anyway. An insta-love story with some insta-sex but I've read more ridiculous premises in other stories so that's not a deal breaker.

Carter is a widow raising young twin daughters and a NFL QB and Texas oil royalty. I really liked Carter - he was decent, honorable, and flat out sexy. Tess was just the woman Carter needed and vice versa after her douche BF and BFF hurt her. So it really pained me when Carter hurt Tess, whether he was s

I thoroughly enjoy Baxter’s various Billionaire’s Club series. They’re quick reads with plenty of romance and steam with leading men who are down-to-earth despite their wealth and leading ladies who are sassy and not afraid to speak their minds. The Billionaire Single Dad was no different in this aspect as Carter and Tess navigate one another’s landmines as they come to terms with the attraction between them.

While I was initially hesitant about the single dad angle, Carter’s daughters played an

Mandy Baxter's Billionaire books are my new crack. I'm not sure if it is because I've fallen in love with the Christensen brothers for being so different from your average billionaires, but I need more of these books.

I liked Tess from the moment she appeared on the page. She didn't take any crap off her cheating boyfriend when she caught him with her best friend, and moved across the country to get a fresh start. She also has no problem standing up to her neighbor when his twin daughters take up

Wow. This is the second book in the series and it made my skin tingle. Ms. Baxter did an outstanding job of providing me visual illustrations through her words. I found the story closely aligned with reality but still provided enough of a fairytale. (I'll let you decide)

Mandy Baxter's writing style is definitely easy to read; at times the writing isn't as intriguing as others, but the full of it, the bottom line? It's believable -- and I certainly love a good story that seems like it happen to just about any person on the street.
