Coming home to a new beginning and an old love

I love this trope and K.C. Crowne has done a great job of writing an interesting story with fun characters that have some depth and of course there is a HEA. The addition of some political intrigue kept my attention and made it not feel dragged out.

I received a free ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review. My opinions are all my own.

Jeremiah was the best-friend to Elle’s father; he was there as she grew up. Now she is a journalist and Jeremiah is a suspect in a murder. She wants to help him but will he let her? Will this put her in danger and will they find out the truth. Fast paced read with load of dram and steam chemistry. Great characters and an entertaining story. I liked it.

A lifelong love

This is the first story I have read from this author, and I can't wait to read more! I really loved it! The setting sounded lovely, idealistically quaint and friendly (for the most part), and the characters... I totally fell in love with them - well, those that weren't nepotistic, arrogant or entitled!

Elle had had an adolescent crush on her Dad's best friend Jeremiah. After an extended absence, she returned home to Liberty, as the owner end editor of the Liberty Leader

Intriguing &Realistic Romanance.

Ms. K.C. Crowne has just published another must read romance, for each of us, romance Junkies. She has such a way to her writing style, where she can draw a reader right in and keep you glued throughout. Everything K.C. publishes is the top notch quality book and Daddy's Best Friend, is certainly no different.

While I do try, immensely hard, never to give away any part of the plot, so that I do not read ruin it for readers, here it goes...

Steamy with some suspense

I’ll admit it - I was a little worried when this started out with our heroine thinking “yes Daddy” when she looked at our hero. I suspected it was going to be over the top sexual, but I was pleasantly surprised by how solid the story was. It’s much more a romance about a woman in her early twenties, who spent a lot of time with her father’s best friend growing up. He was there for all the good times and the person she could turn to when she was in trouble. Somewhere

He is the single father of twins, and she has been helping him care for them.

Cool story

I have read a lot of books of this type and the thing I liked about this book is that's it's a short romantic read . If you just want to read its a good book for that.

You have an older friend of the family raising twins and a smart young journalist who has been a part of his life for many years. Jeremiah is involved in a scandal and Elle is attempting to clear him of charges. She writes an article that disturbs Jeremiah. After that article sparks fly between them. They form a strong

3.5 Star Review

This was a better than average romance between an older man/younger woman between Jeremiah and Elle. He was a friend of her late father, and she’s harbored a crush on him since her childhood. Well, Elle is all grown up, and despite the fact that he attempts to avoid her, eventually the two wind up in each other’s arms. I found the storyline to be all over the place at times though there are many twists and turns to keep you interested. I did find Jeremiah’s behavior a bit

An amazing and exciting read with a riveting story line that is a well written, consistent, and well developed. Lots of action, drama, suspense, nefarious acts and plots, humour, witty banter, and intrigue to look forward to in this story. The characters are strong and great together; their chemistry is intense, hot, and undeniable with sex scenes that are well described and off the charts hot! A recommended read.
