5 star review New Year's With The Single Dad (The Single Dads of Seattle #6) by Whitley Cox

Every time I read a new book in the series I fall more and more for all the dads in The Single Dads of Seattle series. New Years With The Single Dad is Dr. Emmett Strong and single mom Zara Olsen’s story and what a fabulous story it was.

Their children JoJo and Nolan almost steal the book out from under their parents as they had some of the best lines in the book.

A chance meeting at a coffee shop is the

Emmett is still reeling from the betrayal of his wife when she left him and their daughter. All he has is questions about why and what could he have done differently to keep his family together. He has decided that the only female he will allow into his heart is his daughter JoJo.

Zara has a painful past of her own and after her divorce she focused on what would make her happy and that was her son Nolan and her career. She wants love and a relationship but in the interim she is content with her

What are the odds that two people order the same thing at the same time, standing right next to each other? Single dad Emmett wondered that the day he met Zara. When he heard his order being echoed by the other patron of the coffee shop he stopped into before his shift at the hospital. After a quick chat while waiting for their orders, they went their separate ways. Emmett wasn’t looking for anyone. He’s raising his daughter and still nurturing his bruised heart. He didn’t even want to think ...more

I have read and loved each and everyone of the Single Dads of Settle series (this one has been given to me as an ARC); These are all stand alone but for your reading enjoyment and to get to know the characters I would read them all!

Emmett is our next dad – a 40 year ER doctor with a young daughter; he and his wife divorced 18 months ago and he still cannot understand why his wife; his soulmate left him; he felt that he was a good father, husband and provider so when he was served with papers he

CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF THIS SERIES! Emmett is dad number six in this series, and we have a little insight into him because of his daughter JoJo and the interactions she’s had with other children in the previous books. I loved the level of coincidence that happened where Emmett and Zara continued to run into each other multiple times throughout the day, and that really the whole story is based in a less than 48-hour time frame. Zara has a son as well, and while her circumstances are different than ...more

I love how all these books are about people in their 30’s to 40’s age group. Well done, Whitley
This is a great book and you need to read all of the Single Dad’s, love them all
Emmett is an ER Dr, Zara is a florist.
They have several chance meetings on the same day, is this fate for them or will nothing become of it.

I received this book with the understanding that I could leave a voluntary and honest review.

In this book we meet Zara Olsen and Emmett Strong. When this book opens we find Emmett in desperate need of coffee. As he orders though he swears he hears it in stereo. Zara is ordering the exact same thing at the exact same time. Emmett can't belive he has met someone with his exact taste. If that wasn't strange enough the end up meeting 3 more times that day. The final one is the tipping point though

5 out of 5 stars for New Year’s With The Single Dad!

The 6th in The Single Dads of Seattle series, is another adventure with familiar faces and some new ones you’re going love! Zara and Emmett’s story is one of new found trust, love and inner strength that will inspire for future relationships.

Meeting someone once on a random day, is a chance encounter, meeting them twice, a coincidence, three times, well that is destiny telling them something.

Zara is a single mother to a little boy named Nolan,

I seriously LOVE LOVE LOVE The Single Dads of Seattle series, and I'm pretty sure that I'll NEVER EVER get enough of the talented Whitley Cox's world. The underlying plot is 10 sexy single dads play poker every Saturday night, and all of them have never wanted to get into another relationship, since their first ones definitely left scars on them. However, one by one, they're falling, and it's most entertaining as they do. This is Dr. Emmett Strong's story, whose ex-wife destroyed his belief in ...more

I have said it before and I’m sure I will saying it again for me this series gets better with each release, I have loved all the single dads but oh my Dr Emmett Strong has taken this series to another level( if that really was possible) !!!!
This is Emmett Strong and Zara Olsen’s story and what an amazing tale they have to tell because this isn’t just about them their children JoJo and Nolan feature heavily in this book and I have say those kids have some classic one liners that left me smiling

These single dads of Seattle are successful, sweet and sexy! This story is about ER doctor, Emmett Strong. It has been some time, but he is still not over the hurt after being blindsided by his wife divorcing him. He is definitely not looking for a relationship and he has strict rules about brining any girl to meet his young daughter. However, a 24 hour period changes everything.

When Emmett meets his breakfast twin, she’s breathtaking and they flirt like crazy and then she’s gone just like that. One chance meeting is awesome, but two more is fate stepping in to take over.

I absolutely adore this series and I have to say it is one of my current favourites and while each book is a separate stand alone about a individual couple do yourself a favour and read them all because you will fall in love with the single dads of Seattle even though many aren't single anymore

Zara is a florist and a single mom of a young son so, what are the odds that they are both friends with the most successful matchmaking. But before they go to the special NewYears party, they have already bumped into each other several times that day. They are both divorced and victims of bad splits.

This is the sixth book in the Single Dads of Seattle Series and Ms. Cox does not disappoint. This is Emmett’s story and what a whopper it is begging the question of how does one get over losing the love of one’s life? Enter Zara, a third-generation entrepreneur with a gift for knowing exactly how to get one’s message across via flowers. When Emmett meets Zara there is an immediate zing that has him paying attention and wanting more but fate giveth and fate taketh away…until they wind up

New Year's With The Single Dad was like fireworks going off in your heart, the connection between Emmett and Zara is instantaneous and after several accidental meetings in one day, just maybe this was a sign. As chemistry rages between these two and the attraction heats up, old wounds, hard and fast rules and jaded thoughts might be just enough to stand in the way of what could be a life changing midnight kiss. The little humans in this story play an important part and will claim your heart ...more

Another beautiful story of one of the poker-playing Single Dads of Seattle! Dr. Emmet Strong's experiences from breakfast New Year's Eve until breakfast New Year's Day make a long day not to be forgotten. He meets Zara Olsen five times, all pleasant surprises, except the breakfast planned on the second day by their children, JoJo and Nolin, who have also become fast friends. Cox does these tales so well, readers can't help but fall in love with the kids and their parents as they navigate ...more

It was interesting to see if other reviewers felt the same way I did about this book/series and they do. In so many reviews you read the word “fate” when it comes to Emmett and Zara. I’ve read all the books in this series except for the last one and I was so happy I didn’t miss Emmett’s story. Maybe I’m a bit of a grinch but I look more forward to New Year’s Day than Christmas. I think it’s an optimistic day and Emmett deserved a happy new year. The author knows I have a fondness for her ability

I enjoyed this one so much it felt like it flew by. I love the Dingle Dads of Seattle series a lot. It's Dr. Emmett Strong's turn to find his HEA. Emmett's daughter is like a little adult. She's super adorable. The scenes with her and Nolan, Zara's son, steal the show. Their instant friendship will melt your heart. Emmett is very gun shy when it comes to relationships for a good reason. He had his heart ripped out, but will he let he past dictate his future? If he does he may just lose

This is a great series with an interesting collection of single & now not so single dads. This time it's Emmetts turn. A few of the dads are doctors all working at the same hospital. After his ex wife's blindside he's very jaded & sour & his main concern is his daughter Jojo.
Zara has had a relationship much like his. Her story is a bit more complicated. However they strike up an instant attraction at a coffee shop, then surprisingly meet again at her store & a New Years Eve
