With a Hitch starts off where the delicious Ditched leaves off. (Don’t worry, it’s a stand-alone, no cliffy, I’m just saying for maximum enjoyment pick up Ditched too.) But Dax and Darcy’s story is in some ways more gentle, and in other ways oh-so-much more intense.

Dax is just a good guy. Not boring. GOOD. He’s the kind of guy who treats his family right. People right. The heroine right. He’s the kind of guy you actually want to have in your life, sex-swing and all. (You have to read it...)

4 1/2 stars. First lets mention that cover!!! HOT HOT HOT
If only Dax Kendrick were real. He is the quintessential book boyfriend. And while he does have a tiny bit of baggage, he is absolutely swoon worthy. Poor Darcy has a trunk full. She thinks that her past defines her and she doesn't want, need or deserve a HEA. These two were killing me with the slow burn!!! They were both so clueless to their true feelings. I will admit to being a bit aggravated that the story was moving along with them j

Heartwarming. Intense. Exceptional. I loved the entire story. RC Boldt bled her soul into this book. One page and you’ll agree. One name and you’ll be swooning.

Heads up y'all: R.C. Boldt has just delivered a perfect hero.

No lie, I'm so crazy head-over-heels in love with Dax Kendrick, I don't even fully know how to put it into words. He's incredibly sensitive and domesticated while also somehow also unquestionably virile and masculine. He was the perfect balance of tender sweetness, blazing heat, and growly alpha. He was everything and that's only part of what makes this story so special.

Darcy is pretty special in her own right. She's a complicated hero

I can’t get enough of this group of characters!!

With a Hitch focuses on Darcy Cole and Dax Kendrick. I enjoyed the progression of their relationship. While it was clear there was an attraction, with Darcy being hired to match Dax with his potential HEA, things started off slowly. This aspect definitely added its own tension to the story. As these two get closer and the relationship grew, I was getting giddy. I loved them both individually and wanted to see them together. Just when you think thi

When I finished reading Ditched, I was very curious about Dax and his story. Dax just seemed like a good man, the one every girl is looking for. I had no idea how right I was…

With a Hitch is the story of Dax and Darcy, a heartwarming story of two people, each with their own trials and tribulations, that come together in the most beautiful relationship I’ve read in a long time. Dax was so gentle and loving with Darcy, he has to be the number one book boyfriend ever! Darcy was amazing in her own w
***4.5 Stars***

I loved Ditched and couldn’t wait to see who was going to be up next to get their HEA because it was filled with some pretty amazing characters, so when it was announced that Dax ~ who just so happened to be one of my favs ~ was up next to get his HEA, and it was Darcy who was going to be his partner, I was all kinds of excited and I have to say it was one hell of a ride. The slow burn in this one is all kinds of real, but it was tempered by all kinds of goodness: Sweet, smexy,

It’s been a few years since I’ve read an R.C. Boldt book, but clearly, I have been missing out! This book was sooooo good!! It’s a slow burn, friends to lovers sports romance. This is a standalone although you may want to read Ditched before this because Darcy is Ivy’s sister, and Dax is Becket’s best friend. I haven’t read it and I’m definitely going to go back to it. Boldt did interweave a couple past encounters in between present scenes of the two main characters so we know how the

**4-4.5 stars** With a Hitch is another winner from RC Boldt! I really enjoyed this slow burn, friends-to-lovers story. Dax and Darcy are great together, both as friends and lovers. I loved the journey to their HEA. It wasn’t a race to the end zone, which I liked. But boy can these two heat things up! *fans self* Talk about great chemistry! Dax is a really good man (loved him!) and the perfect match for Darcy. A very fun, sexy & sweet story that I highly recommend!

Eek! I can't help but be excited about With a Hitch by RC Boldt! I have a serious obsession with hilarious books and RC Boldt is hilarious! She makes me literally laugh out loud and I know lol is said a lot but I don't really think people do it as often. Don't you think we'd be laughing all the time? But, and this is a pretty big BUT, RC Boldt's writing and humor is different than other authors. Somehow Mrs. Boldt is able to give us a fall outta your seat laughing mixed with real emotion.

Great friends to lovers story that was a slow burn but you’ll clearly enjoy. Darcy worked as a matchmaker and was helping Dax find is perfect match. Dax used her because of her reputation and also because he was a professional NFL player and he didn’t want some woman using him for his fame and money. But as time passed he realized he didn’t want any of the women Darcy tried setting him up with, he wanted his independent friend. Darcy was started to have feelings also but she didn’t want to jeopa ...more

Ditched got my attention. With a Hitch captured my heart. I fell hard for Ivy and Becket and knew that I had to have more. Darcy and Dax are a continuation of my love affair with the amazingly talented RC Boldt. With a Hitch has everything from friendships to family and sex appeal. Darcy, Ivy, Dax and Becket are a new kind of family. Their proof that family is not always made by the blood shared, but by the bond love builds. History, life and emotion are at the heart of this family. I love that. ...more

LOVED this so much! I mean, Dax...swoon! (I really want to know if turmeric muffins are thing and where I can get a hot guy to make me some?) This friends-to-lovers story had all of the things I love in a romance - a swoon-worthy hero, a strong heroine and chemistry that is off the charts!

4.5 Swoon Worthy stars! A fantastic first read by this new to me author. I absolutely loved Dax! Sexy, confident and so charming you can’t help but fall for him. Darcy a perfect match, strong yet still vulnerable and selfless. Their banter and chemistry is scorching hot in this friends to lovers story. I was hooked from the get go and didn’t want to put it down. A must read!

Can we all have a man like Dax in our life????

Dax Kendrick is swoony, strong and a mans-man...when he wants something, he is all in! He had a goal of what he wants....enter Darcy Cole. Darcy, oh how my heart ached for her. We were given an introduction to Darcy in Ditched (I’ve been anxious to find out more about Darcy).

When I read my first book from Ms. Boldt I had this feeling that I had just found an author that I wanted more from; so, like any good reader, I binged everything

***DNF at 29%***

I struggled with this book. There were points in which it seemed like it was coming together, but overall I couldn't relate to the characters and struggled with finding them authentic and relatable, especially some of the things they said and some of their reactions.

Dax is seriously one amazing book boyfriend! He loves his family fiercely, takes care of those he loves and is honest to his core! He just wants to find someone who can love all the things that make him....well him! He’s in a business where your money means more then who you are as a person!! His only draw back is he picks the women who are “safe” and that’s both allowing him to find the woman who deserves his love!

Darcy is an independent woman who has learned to trust only a few select people!

With a Hitch is a stand-alone novel by R.C. Boldt. Ivy and Beckett from Ditched appear, but there is no need to have read their story. We just see them living their happily ever after and being the voice of reason.

Dax is an ideal boyfriend with one big flaw. He bid his time for too long. The dude waited months instead of just going for it. We even explained why he did it and answered the question I had in my mind, but I wasn't convinced. I needed something more. And I would have loved to see Da

A simple connection. That’s all it takes to begin something wonderful. But do you act on it or fight it, afraid to take that chance?

Dax Kendrick exudes sex appeal but there’s more to him than that. He’s a kind, gentle soul. The kind of man that may have a powerful build, but doesn’t want that to be his calling card. He’s near perfect and definitely made me swoon.

Darcy Cole has worked hard to be the success that she is. But just like Dax, she is more than her tough, business-like

I loved Dax so much. He's definitely going on my top list of book boyfriends. I will say for this cat lover Dax does have one flaw, but I forgive him. I agree with Darcy if women saw Dax holding a kitten ovaries would explode. This book caused a book hangover because I just didn't want to stop reading. I also loved catching up with Beckett and Ivy seeing them enjoying their HEA. I loved the scenes with Dax and his family. Those were some of the special moments in the book and solidified

Darcy & Dax
When I met Dax in the first book I thought what a great character, someone that you want to know and be friends with. I had no idea what a beautiful man he was. As I read each chapter he became more surprising and I was falling in love with his gentle nature and genuine care that he gave each fellow human being. Dax and Darcy's first meeting is him showing concern for another person but soon you know that they have electricity between them. Darcy can be a bit guarded and reserved

Can you say slow burn? Sexy angst? Friends to lovers? Holy hotness? I would think that should be enough to tell you to read this book, right? What more could I possibly say?

Let's see... you have Dax. YUM. You have Darcy. Awesome. You have some flirting. You have some funny banter. You have a story that will slowly melt you into a puddle of mush by the end.

If you’re looking for a fantastically written book, a beautiful and heartfelt love story that will make you fall in love with its characters, then this is the book you need to read!
And as a bonus, I believe this book had the hottest sex scenes I’ve read from this author so far. (And I’ve read almost all of her books)

You know the feeling that slowly starts to grow inside you after having spent too much time in the cold and then warming up in front of the fireplace?! When the warm seeps

Pro football star Dax Kendrick has pretty much everything he ever dreamed of. An amazing career, a loving family and enough money to give back to the community he loves. What he doesn’t have, however, is a woman who wants him, not because of his fame or money, but because of the man he truly is. He’s just about ready to give up hope when he makes a last effort by contacting Hitched to set him up with Mrs. Right.

Dax Kendrick is a man with a huge heart, who wants to find his person, but being a professional football player, it's hard to weed out the gold diggers. So he hires Darcy Cole to find him the perfect woman. Darcy grew up in the foster system, so she's worked hard to get her business up & running, which means she has no personal life of her own. It takes her sister begging for her to take on Dax though, not because he would be so difficult, but because Darcy has her own crush on him, though h ...more
