She’s the calm to this storm.

A sweet and emotional contemporary read. This is a novella so things start off quickly. Many things happen, and then it leads to Judd being a single dad and Leighton being there when he needs her.

I really enjoyed this read, and loved that it felt kind of slow burn even though it’s a quick story. I think since it’s a bit of a sensitive topic it’s good the way the author handled the romance.

If you like quick yet still slow burn contemporaries, maybe even consider this

Adored by groupies

Adored by an endless list of one-night stands

This was Judd Matthews’ life – a life that he reveled in because he was able to live his dream each and every time he stepped out onto a stage or went into the studio to record another hit song.
Judd adored the freedom he felt on the road and by not being tied down in a monogamous relationship; he was a single attractive man who lived it up one woman and one bottle of beer at a time…until a helpless baby girl entered hi

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of the book.

Adored is such a sweet little story that sort of packs an emotional punch. It's kind of amazing how much depth Georgia Cates was able to inject into such a short story. I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about Judd when he was introduced, but it was easy to fall in love with him as he embraces fatherhood and as we watch Leighton fall in love with him as well. The way they fall for each other seems so natural that even though it happen

Georgia Cates is a favorite author and a go to one for me. This was a very short story, about 80 pages are 1.5 to read. Not a great deal of time for relationship development but the story still worked for me. Cute read. It really should be only .99 versus 1.99 but whatever.

The globetrotting bachelor learns how to be a family man in this sweet yet humorous ode to the fairy tale. There's a magic to the bond between a father and daughter that Ms. Cates captured perfectly. Surprise daddy scenarios are a treasure because there is something so sexy about a man taking his first awkward steps in fatherhood. Judd was a wanderer. His career took him many places but one adorable little girl taught him the meaning of love and one special woman gave him his heart's desire.

Adore is the perfect title for this novella by Georgia Cates because I absolutely ADORED this story.

Adore is a standalone novella in Kelly Elliott’s Wanted World and is told in Dual POV. This was a sweet and sexy single dad rock star romance. It had a touch of the forbidden love story because Leighton is hired by Judd to be his newborn baby’s nanny. The connection to Kelly Elliott’s Wanted Series i

Debated on five stars because the book is quite short. It could of been expanded but it hadn't. The story for the length is still detailed enough that you feel for the characters and feel their chemistry.

I feel like it should be enough but I liked it to be more too. Good writing!!

The single life is the only thing Judd Matthews looks for now that he is living his dream. No one to tie Judd down every time he headed to the studio or performed on the stage. A steady stream of one night stands to keep him occupied during his ‘down’ time. No attachments of any kind.
Then the unexpected rocked Judd’s world. A little girl that would forever change the way this ‘cowboy’ hung his hat. Another unexpected addition to Judd’s life is the NICU nurse – Leighton Mitchell. This ‘angel’ is

GAH! I want so much more of this book! Adored was phenomenal, particularly when you consider it’s a novella and all of those feelings it provoked were done in such a short time. Judd and Leighton were wonderful, and baby Scarlett made my heart burst with love and affection.

Judd Mathews one of the hottest country music stars out there is in for the shock of his life - he is going to become a father. When his baby is born early he is all she has in the world and to say he is not ready would be an understatement.

What a cute read. Love Judd and Leighton. They net in the most unconventional way. Judd is a famous country singer and Leighton is a NICU nurse. They meet when Judd finds out that he has a daughter in NICU and Leighton is her nurse.

Judd never wanted kids and didn’t know about his daughter existence until that day. When Scarlett his baby girl was finally discharged he still wasn’t sure of himself and made Leighton an offer that at first she was hesitant but then couldn’t resist. She became Scarle

The Wanted series is one of my all time favorites, so needless to say, I had high expectations for the books in the Wanted Kindle World. I can safely say I am not disappointed. Georgia Cates knocked it out of the park with Adored. It has everything I adore in this series and more. The sweetness, the swoon worthy sexy cowboys, the beautiful romance, Adored is perfect.

Leighton and Judd were so wonderful. Their sweet romance will leave you feeling all warm and fuzzy. I’m always a sucker for a sing

I really enjoyed this novella from Kelly Elliott’s Wanted Kindle World. Georgia Cates packed a lot of story and character development into it. It definitely had the Wanted feel and I know Kelly must be proud.

Leighton was the one thing Judd never saw coming or knew he needed. She complimented him perfectly. The romance was a slow burn, and I loved the build-up to them finally coming together. Leighton about broke my heart in some of the scenes, and I was so happy that she got the family she alwa

This was a beautifully written and touching story. By the lovely Georgia Cates.
She gives use another book friend to fall in love with and drool over. Another story to talk about with your best friend and read over and over again.

Judd Mathews never wanted a child. Until he walked into a hospital and becomes an instant father. To a precious little new born baby girl. (Scarlett Leighton) It's Love at first sight for Judd. He never knew what he wanted until it was right in front of him.

Oh my, Judd Matthews is enough to make a southern girl swoon.
He's the total package and going from the life of a man on the road to daddy of the year in record time makes him even sexier.
Leighton was his baby's NICU nurse, she's the only person he trusts to take care of his daughter while he's on the road so he makes her an offer she cant refuse, moves her in and gives her everything she could need.
Except the one thing she longs for.
