4 “Shh. It’s okay, Doodlebug.” Stars!!

Quite the swoony, can’t turn the pages fast enough, steamy romance that gave me all kind of “feels.”


Hot, single dad alert! Buckle up and enjoy the sexiness, protectiveness and stubbornness of Tucker Jaxson!

Not to mention Camryn Parker, the sassy, dark haired beauty, who moves in next door. She is a lot of fun, says what is on her mind and is independent, but also has abandonment issues.

Tucker is a widow whose sole purpose is caring for his child. He has

Entãoooo, eu tinha a impressão de que esse livro me traria diversas emoções, que me faria “sentir”. No entanto, logo a princípio, percebi que não era nada do que eu imaginava...

Camryn e Tucker foram bons personagens, porém não consegui ter uma conexão mais profunda por nenhum deles.
E creio que isso foi devido a forma como a história foi conduzida.

Os dois tinham tudo para criar uma conexão mais emocional, no entanto, pra mim pareceu que ficou só na atração física, que boa parte da

Not as good as I expected...
3 out of 2,5 stars

Sometimes I read a book just because I fall in love with its cover. Here, the same thing happened and although I am not a fan of "single dad romance", I decided to read this book because of its successful cover.

The characters:

The heroine, Camryn is a sweet soul, impossible not to love.

Tucker, the hero, was good until he made that mistake and pissed me off. Although Camryn has forgiven him, I haven't. He should have grovelled & suffered more befo

Overall Opinion: Welp...I finished it! I honestly can't even say what it was that held me on until the end. I struggled with a good bit of this tbh. I struggled with the instalove. I struggled with the characters. I struggled with the predictability. I struggled with the time jumps. AND I struggled with the main conflict. I never really felt connected to either character, I never really felt their connection to each other, and I just had an overall feeling that I was being told about thei

Es un libro que se lee bastante rápido es muy ágil y no tiene mucho drama.

Los protagonista no estuvieron mal aunque si un poco grises así como eeeeh its ok

Tiene un plot twist tan predecible que lo ves a mil kilómetros de distancia.

Es una historia de un single dad y no es la mejor

La hija fue lo mejor de este libro, como que siempre mejoran todo (es muy raro que en los libros me gusten mucho los niños y en la vida real no soy muy fan de ellos).

You ever want to just hug a book? Like squeeze it and cherish it forever and ever because it was just that good? That’s exactly how I feel about Everything I Never Wanted. K. Street is a completely new to me author, but after reading the blurb for this I knew I had to read it. It’s always the best feeling when you discover an author you’ve never read and find gold in the power of their writing.
Filled with sweetness made from an adorable little girl and a romance that tugs at your heart strings.

Soooo.. I liked it. I didn’t love it though. I wanted to SO BAD! But I couldn’t.
There were just a lot things that the heroine did that I just didn’t think was okay. Mainly after this big emotional event, she just... I don’t know, she totally disregarded herself, her thoughts, her feelings, everything. And I know she loved him, she loved his little girl but I just didn’t agree with it.
And honestly if you read it, you might not even notice it.

Single daddy books are my jam and Everything I never Wanted was a super cute read that I truly needed. I wanted a light, no-fuss kind of book that I could get sucked into and put a smile on my face. If you are looking for a low angst, heart-warming book with a sexy single Daddy then Everything I never wanted is for you.

The thing that I really liked about this book was that the little girl had a big role. I love it when an author gives the kid a good portion of the book and she
4.5 Tucker and Cam Stars

I really enjoyed this book. It’s a single dad romance, but it’s so much more than that.

Tucker is Daddy to 4/5 yr old Shayne who has to be one of the sweetest, funniest children I’ve ever read in a book. Aww- she’s so cute.

Camryn is the new school nurse at Shayne’s new school but she’s also Tucker’s new neighbour. They both have heart breaking back stories. There is an excellent twist and a couple of things I didn’t see coming.

The plot is good and it’s well paced - I co

Give me a hot single parent dad who is totally an all-around great guy and I am in!!!

Tucker is surviving…barely.
It’s been 4 years…
He can’t move on…
He hasn’t grieved any…
Not for any of them.

But the little girl, his ‘doodlebug’ is everything. It’s not been easy…

Camryn is ready to start the new chapter in her life. Moving to a new town, starting a new job, this is how the chapter starts. She would have never thought that ‘Lucille’ would end up

As I write this review, I am contemplating each word so that I may give this fantastic book the truly outstanding praise that it deserves. K. Street’s Everything I Never Wanted gives your heart all the feels and your mind all the deliciousness that you could ever want from a story.

Camryn has lost her way and is moving on. A new town with a new job is just the fresh start she needs. Tucker has his hands full with his Doodlebug, Shayne, but when his path crosses with Camryn, something changes that

Another good read by fresh new author K. Street. I finished her 1st release "Healing the Broken" which I absolutely loved. Maybe one of the best 1st books published by an author I have come across. So when I saw that this book was due only a few days later to be released you bet your sweet ass I one clicked the hell out of it. I wasn't disappointed.

Tucker is a man with a life of great loss and secrets. His brother was KIA on foreign soil. His mother took it extremely hard. His wife died from ca
This was a really touching story overall, but let's be real.... Shayne completely stole the show. That little girl tickled my funny bone 😁

"You don't get to choose your hand, but you can decide how to play the cards."

For my first K Street book, I was pleasantly surprised. For someone that doesn't read a lot of cutesy, sweet books, I immediately fell in love with her characters and was enjoying the storyline. I also read select few single daddy books because I am always afraid the story may not live up to my expectations from what I have read and loved previously, but I usually love the sound of them because there i

Love, loss, fear...those are just a few of the emotions Everything I Never Wanted deals with.
I sat down to read this book and could not stop, I literally read it in one day and was left wishing there were a few more chapters.
I easily fell in love with Shayne, she was too adorable not to.
Camryn was pretty amazing herself, someone who has some issues and isn't perfect but is willing to fight for those she cares about, she was perfect.
And Tucker.

If i could give this book more than 5 ✨ i would!!! It was so freakin good!!! I was told to read this by my sister, as we read A Lot of the same things. She had found this on KU and said it was fantastic. I stopped what I was reading at the time because she sold me on “single Daddy with cute kid”. We had never read anything by this author and now I want to read EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!
If you make me cry or gasp in the prologue...I’m generally sold!! Nowhere to go but up..right??? Well let me tell you.

He said he never wanted it, but he got it any way, LOL
This was a cute story. I enjoyed it very much.
The hero did make a huge mistake, but i understand him, me too: firstly i open my mouth and much more later, when my blood is cold enough i think “What did i do??”.
There is no cheating between MCs. They had relationships before meeting each other.
The hero is just great dad, great lover and caring person.
Our heroine had some issues with abandonment. I got her... Some women should not be mothers...

If your looking for a read that will make you cry, laugh and believe in love and second chances then get lost in Everything I Never Wanted.

It will tug at your heart. The story is well written, the characters are likeable and you can't help but fall in love with story.

Redemption, second chances and hope.

This book, oh man, it gut me at times, at others was so sweet. Tucker and his Bug always made me smile. He was doing a great job raising his daughter. Shayne was so sweet, you want a little girl like her in your life.

When Camryn shows up, you knew she and Tucker would end up together, but just how that happened was fun to watch. Because as much as Camryn fell in love with Tucker, she fell even more in love with Shayne. It was due to that fact that when Tucker hurt Camryn he hurt her bad. I tota

This was the first book of K. Street's that I've read, and I was absolutely blown away. I will definitely be reading her other works. "Everything I Never Wanted" grabbed my attention from the first few pages, pulled at my heartstrings repeatedly, and made me have to fan myself as I read. K's writing and storytelling feels organic, it flows really well, and she doesn't present all of the conflicts at once, which allows for a few surprises and even more depth. Tucker and Camryn have a fun relation ...more

That was fantastic!!! I LOVED this story; the characters - oh swoon! Tucker is heart throbby and might be one of the BEST book boyfriends I've ever read!!! EVER!!!! Shayne is the sweetest little girl and her personality just shines; she had me giggling!!! Camryn is sweet and lovely and I LOVE Tucker's Mom! I love books with Mom's. I want to be in their family or live next door to them. I HIGHLY recommend this one!! Just enough angst that wasn't over the top or drug out for 575 chapters. :-)

For the past four years, widow and single father Tucker Jaxon’s life has revolved around his daughter Shayne. He’s been mostly content with the occasional hookup to satisfy his needs. That is until Camryn Parker comes to town. Shortly after meeting her he realizes that he is finally ready to try for more. It doesn’t hurt that sweet, sassy Camryn is absolutely nothing love with his daughter. Both Tucker and Camryn have issues they need to overcome to have a real chance at a relationship and they ...more

A beautifully written story about 2 broken souls. Both heart broken by who they thought were the love of their lives.
Tucker is an amazing Man and he has my respect. ** spoiler free review** I have never "met" a man who was so selfless.
