This is my first book in the Tap That series but I'm really interested in all of these characters now and I'm excited to go back and read the previous books. This one was a little light on the romance for me but I liked that it had a lot of time focusing on the family dynamic and not just the connection between Grace and Brandon. Definitely a book for any lover of the secret-baby trope.

Grace spent a drunken night in her college dorm room with a cute guy called Jeff. Well that’s the name he left on the nightstand beside her bed, along with his mobile number. After discovering she was pregnant several weeks later she also found out the name was fake and the number was wrong.

Nine years later and Grace is the proud mother of a gorgeous wee girl called Fallon. Almost daily Fallon asks her mum about her father and so far Grace has managed to evasively answer her but the old

I absolutely love single parent or secret baby romances, and when I read the blurb for this one it sounded right up my alley. Then I saw that hot cover and I was sold. I wasn’t aware it was part of a series but it read just fine as a stand alone so I don’t think that particularly mattered other than I maybe missed out on a little background on some of the secondary characters but not enough that it mattered at all.

I have to be honest and say that while I enjoyed this book I found it a little to

An one-night stands ends with a pregnancy and now 9 years later our guy and girl meet again! After the wonderful surprise that the second Tap That book brought me, I just couldn't resist but sign up when the opportunity knocked on my door to also review this new book in the series. This time featuring another couple though we would see older characters as well.

Striptease was a entertaining read from start to finish. Grace has an eight-year-old daughter Fallan. Grace has given up trying to find the baby daddy after he gave her a false name.
Grace sees an advert about a striptease in aid of a charity. Feeling bored she persuade her friend Siobhan to travel to Beaver Bend.
Brandon has arrived for the annual event with his best friends, not realising how his life is going to change.

Strip Tease is book 3 in the Tap That series but can be read as a standalone.

A one night stand in college left Grace pregnant and unable to track down the guy who gave her the wrong name and number. Nine years later she stumbles on an article about a charity strip show and is shocked to see the man she thought she would never find and sets out to tell him about his daughter and give him a piece of her mind.

Brandon is a successful bachelor, with no plans to settle down. While dancing w

This lands somewhere between 2.5 and 3 stars. It felt a lot rushed at times but at the same time, I really liked the dynamic between Grace and Brandon, it was fun to read.

I am just a huge sucker for second chance romances that involve a surprise baby trope. This was one was a bit different as the discovery of said baby took place nine-ish years later after a very hot one night stand in celebration of Jeff Spicoli/Brandon's 21st birthday. Encounter that left Grace with a gift from that night and no way to contact the baby daddy to let him know.

I would like to begin this review stating that I wouldn't mind if each book didn't begin one year after the previous one. Book 3 began with the third annual stipping by the guys and for some reason, it bugs me to have each story happen a year after the previous one ended especially when the stories and the whole falling in love thing happens in a span of a couple of months if not weeks. At least the author is publishing the books in a quick session and I am happy that I will get all the stories ...more

This is the Third book in the series and it’s just as good as the first this one is my favorite so far! I love how she keeps with the theme of the stripping charity event. You get to see all your favorite characters from the series in this book.

Grace had a one night stand in college and ended up pregnant. The guy she was with gave her not only a fake name but phone number so she was on her own raising her daughter. One night at a charity event she spots the guy she slept with partying it up.

Second chances are my fav and if you add children I am a goner!
Grace has a daughter, a gift that was the result of a one night stand!!
Imagine Grace's shock at finding the "dad" all these years later!
I have to hand it to them both..Grace has balls for giving him a piece of her mind and Brandon for manning up and accept his role.
I adored it!

Loved this one! How did I not know this series existed? (No worries--this worked fine as a standalone, but you'd better believe I'm going back for the other two...and totally on board for the next two!)

Ok... I had no clue this was a third in a series! When I signed up for this blog tour is never said anything about being in a series.

I could tell right away that I was missing something. These characters weren’t formally introduced. It was like they just were continuing a conversation. I just happened to walk in on.

So... I stopped reading at 2% and looked up the other books. And to my surprise... I had book 1! Yes, I’m a 1 click addict! lol
So, I wanted to give strip tease a fare chance.

The hilarious and heartwarming return of Jeff Spicoli!

I hadn't heard that name in decades, so it was especially funny to see our hero, Brandon, use it as an alias in a one-night-stand on his twenty-first birthday. That and an illegible phone number resulted in his not knowing that something completely life-changing happened that night. Nine years later, Grace happens to see the familiar face in an online video, and she finally has the chance to confront her daughter's father.

While Erin McCarthy is brand spanking new to me, she's definitely piqued my interest in the others by the time I finished this book and left me wanting to go back to the previous ones in this amazing series y'all. Strip Tease is the third standalone in the Tap That series that will give you all the feels while you'll find yourself rooting for this little family to find their own happy ending.

I want to shout it from the highest mountain...I loved every single sexy, sweet, unpredictable moment of this incredible book. I loved Erin McCarthy's humor, wit, story, plot, characters, I mean just everything about this book. If found myself wanting to be the one falling for Brandon. I found myself envious of Grace and what she had and could have. I loved this story from start to finish. I can't want to see what Erin has in store next, but I hop

A chance encounter at Brandon's 21st birthday leads to a night that both Brandon and Grace will never forget, but both for different reasons.

Brandon remembers a hot amazing night with a sexy woman, Grace remembers the night that she got pregnant with her daughter Fallon.

Strip Tease is a fun, easy read. Once I started this I couldn't put it down until I finished it which meant a late night for me. I just kept doing more chapter thing lol.

Stripe Tease was a quick but enjoyable read for me. Grace has struggled as a single mother for years because she didn't know who her baby daddy really was due to his giving her a fake name. When she sees a picture of him, she makes moves to find out who he is so she can drop this secret baby bomb in his lap so to speak. But what happens next is unexpected to say the least.

Brandon can't believe it when Grace drops the news he's a daddy. Even more that he's missed many years of his daughter's lif

Erin McCarthy is a new author to me and after reading Strip Tease I’m struggling to understand why she hasn’t crossed my radar before now and one thing that’s certain is I will be checking out the previous books in this series and well as her other books as soon as time permits.

This is a good second chance romance and the third book in the Tap That series. I liked Grace’s character very much. As a single mom, she’s strong, independent, and determined to provide for her daughter to the best that she’s able. Brandon is an easy going guy who works hard and has the success to show for it. He also enjoys the ladies and has no plans to settle down anytime soon – until he’s reunited with Grace and meets his eight year old daughter, Fallon. The story is sweet with little to no ...more

St Tea by Erin McCarthy is book three in a series of stand alones. For maximum reading experience I recommend to read the books in order.

Brandon Blackwell is an wildly successful business man, loves his bachelor lifestyle and is in for the surprise of his life. Years ago a ons had consequences and these are about to show up on his doorstep.
Grace Martinez is a single mom. She works hard to make ends meet and when her baby daddy shows up on TV, she's stunned speechless, Jeff Spicoli doesn't exist.

Ten years ago, a steamy one night stand left Grace pregnant and alone. The baby daddy gave her a false name and the number he left didn’t work so she has raised their nine year old daughter Fallon on her own. She had given up ever finding out who he was until she sees him on tv performing in a charity auction.

For the last ten years Brandon has forged a successful career and enjoyed his bachelor lifestyle. When a blast from his past comes bearing surprising news, he isn’t about to turn his back o

Each one will have you falling for this group of friends with each and every story. These men aren't perfect but its how they learn from their mistakes and prove that they can be a man that is perfect for their woman.

So read three books in this series in a row and one thing that struck me was the terrible editing. This book in particular. There are 5 main friends in this book...Brandon (the main character for this book), Axl (book 2), Jesse, Sullivan and Rick (book 1). At one point in this book, the plot specifically mentioned that all the guys EXCEPT Sullivan were able to meet together in the middle of the night (cuz Sullivan was working at his bar), then the conversation rolls along between 4 of the 5 guys ...more
