I don't want him.
I can't do this.
That's what my ex said after our son was born, leaving me a single dad.

These days, my world consists of two things: Noah and my bar.
Until her—the woman I want—but can never have.
My ex’s sister wasn’t supposed to be stirred into the mix.

Even though I try to push her away, my son falls in love with her.

If you want angsty single dad and his ex’s sister, then you’ll enjoy this, because Ms. Ferrell provides. The ex is a total DEAD BEAT MOTHA, so literally I was rooting hard for this couple. They were sweet and I loved the connection the heroine forms with the child. I can’t rate it higher, because there were character traits/choices that just annoyed the eff out of me. And even though I did like this couple together they really didn’t spend any time on page just falling in love. It was told to us ...more

Stirred is the first book in the Twisted Fox series of interconnected standalones. It is a single dad, small town romance with a forbidden/taboo aspect to it. It has a great mix of sweet and heartfelt moments as well as drama and angst.

Jamie is an ER doctor and hasn't always had the best relationship with her sister which was made worse when her sister abbondend her new born son and boyfriend saying she didnt want anything to do with them. Jamie is a strong, kind, level headed, ra

Single dad/ mom romance novels are something that I really like to read because I love seeing how the h/ H will interact with the child or children of the other person. This book has this trope and I was immediately interested to read it. I was a little hesitant though because of the whole it’s the sisters ex that is the single dad and H. However, I didn’t mind it as much as I thought I would. I don’t normally like them because of the DRAMA that it brings. But the drama in this didn’t

This is my first book by Charity Ferrell. I noticed I have some others of hers marked on my TBR but I haven’t ever read any and after this book I will certainly be reading more.

I’ve read several books with this same trope (mother abandons child & father is a single dad now) but this was really different right at the very beginning.

I really loved Cohen and his great support system of friends and family. I liked the fact that he is a bar owner which seems like an added o

This book was a definite trip in every sense of the word.
First, it’s a sexy single daddy romance. Cohen is a broody, dedicated family man, his life evolves around his son and his bar.
Second, it’s a forbidden romance as well because the heroine Jamie, is Cohen’s ex girlfriend/baby mamma’s younger sister. She’s a Doctor by day, sassy spitfire by night.
Third, things get complicated when Jamie and Cohen start spending time together and their hatred for one another turns into an all consuming, off

Last year, I read a book by this author, and even though I didn't hate it, I felt that there were no good reasons to read another book by her. A couple of days ago, that changed... mainly because everything in my kindle seems boring (yes, there are about 300 or 400 ebooks in it) and I just couldn't find anything interesting by looking here in Goodreads. That's why I started Stirred.
I think I have said this before, but I don't really like romances with single parents. Mainly because I can't imagi

Put together some Angst, a forbidden romance, great side characters and so drama and you have this single dad romance! Charity put together a great romance that will keep you wanting more. This is the first book in the Twisted Fox series and now I can’t wait for future books! Jamie is sweet, caring and has been in love with her sister’s ex for a long time now.

Sweet romance

Well written sweet romantic story with enough drama to keep you interested and turning the pages. For me, however, it was a little too much focus on other friends/couples that have their own books.

I picked this one up primarily for the cover, but ended up really enjoying this single dad, forbidden romance. I definitely plan to continue in the series!

Cohen was such a protective, nurturing father, always ensuring the top priority was his son. Left with a lot of resentment since being left as a single father five years ago, he unexpectedly crosses paths with Jamie, the sister of his ex-girlfriend, during an ER visit.

With their first interaction fuelled by hatred, promising to never let any c

Too much angst with Jamie and Cohen. I wanted Jamie to fight for what they had but it seemed like she got the easy way out. I have a feeling she would still be sobbing on the couch if her family hadn’t rightened itself on it’s own. Heather was a narcissistic b****. I don’t know how her parents did not see it. Also...who invites someone to live in someone else’s house?🤔🤷🏻‍♀️🤯The only person that was fairly consistent with how they felt and honest about it was Cohen. I actually wish he ended up wi ...more

Book 1 in the new Twisted Fox series and it was such a great start. Single dad with a forbidden romance theme was all I needed to see to know that I wanted to read this story. Jamie and Cohen stole my heart and had me rooting for them the entire time I read their story. They had some much history between them and not all of it was good. When he needed help for his son, Jamie was the one who ended up helping him. They started to slowly navigate around each other and get to know each other again a ...more

I love love loved this book! I loved the characters (except Heather the hoe bag), I love the storyline, & I loved the love! I’ve never read any of Charity’s books before but she’s got a new fan for life from me.

First off I love a good single dad romance, their always so fierce & protective & I really really like that. Secondly love the name Cohen & Noah. These two were absolutely adorable together & I sided with Cohen throughout the entire book.

Jamie, sometimes family sucks & you can’t change
This was an interesting storyline and I truly enjoyed this book.

Stirred by Charity Ferrell was enjoyable read. I think this series is off to a great start. I look forward to other books in this series.

If you are a fan of the single father romance with a hint of forbidden in it, then this is a book you should read. I really liked this storyline, it was something new that I hadn’t read in awhile. I liked that because of how the Her

Cohen is one hot, single dad.
Heather is the loathsome, heartless ex who left him and their baby.
Jamie is Heather’s sister who enters Cohen & Noah’s lives five years later.

Enter tension and anger and fear, reluctance, giving in, and some unwanted, forbidden, yet undeniable attraction.

I knew after reading the blurb, this was going to be an angsty read. I expected it. I wanted it. I got it.

Jess (ireadergosum) Reviews
There is just something about a wounded single dad that pulls me right into a story. Cohen is all broody with a wall up that no one is supposed to break through, but with good reason. His son Noah is the freakin' cutest and I love how he adds to the story along the way. And of course Noah totally falls for Jamie, because who wouldn't. Jamie is a doctor that's sweet and just wants to be apart of her nephew's life. The journey these three go on definitely has its ups and downs, but I really enjoye ...more

I went into this book in blind just knowing the single dad and the forbbiden tropes were in it , and what a good surprised this book Was , I didn’t expect to like it that much , since the begging I was completely lost in the story.

Is the first book i read by this author and i am for sure looking forward to read more of her. The storyline was delicious I enjoyed every conversation between Cohen and Jamie this two were just perfect for each other.

UFFF this book was a roller coaster that I wanted to get off of multiple times. I really enjoyed the beginning of the book but then Jaime decided to be the WORST. I was on board for this union until these 30 somethings decided to be immature assholes. And the last few chapters of this book are actually laughable, the resolution is soooo dumb. Me and Charity Ferrell really have a love hate relationship, but mostly a hate relationship at this point....

5/10 not likely to recommend

I'm a sucker for a sexy, single dad and Cohen Fox was the epitome of these characteristics! He'd been wronged in the worst possible way, was raising his 5 year old son alone and trying to run a successful business. Love wasn't even on his radar when a chance encounter in the local ER with his baby mama's little sister happened. But seeing Jamie brought back a ton of emotions for Cohen, and not all of them were good.

The history between Cohen and Jamie was complicated but with the past behind them

Stirred is the first book in Charity Ferrell’s Twisted Fox Series. This story was addicting and hard to put down once I started. It is filled with angst and emotion. Cohen is a single dad, to Noah. He owns and runs a local bar, called the Twisted Fox. He is focused on giving Noah the best life possible even though his mother walked out of his life from the time he was born without a second glance.
Jamie is an ER doctor, and also Noah’s aunt. Her sister, Heather is Noah’s mother but aban

Single dad romance at its finest!

(Spoiler-free Review)
I was so definitely pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed and loved reading this book. Not that I went in expecting to hate it, but I like ended up really loving it!

Basically, years after being abandoned with his son by his ex (& son’s mum), Cohen runs into her younger sister, Jamie, who used to crush on him. Chaos ensures as there is bad blood between him and her entire family. Of course, it all ends in romance! 🥰❤️

I really loved it!

I loved loved loved this book! Stirred is a spin-off off Charity’s Blue Beech Series where we had briefly met Cohan and Jamie. I love this little world that Ms. Ferrell has created with her characters. All of their lives tie together in someway and I love that.

These two characters were so prefect for each other and as to work through some very big issues. Noah, Cohan’s little boy was my favorite character in this story. He was so adorable and fun, very much like how a young child is in real life

Oh my gosh you guys! This book was magic! It was pure break my heart, melt my heart, put my heart back together again gold! Jamie and Cohen’s story is gut wrenching at first , but then it gives way to this phenomenally beautiful journey of love, and healing at the same time. Cohen and Jamie’s story is anything but a traditional boy meets girl romance.

From the outside looking in these are two people who are so wrong for each other for many reasons, but from the moment the

I can never resist a single dad romance, so when I first read the blurb of Stirred, I was already interested. Add to the mix the sister’s ex trope and I was really intrigued. This was my first time reading Charity Ferrell and now I’m hooked. This book was a pleasant surprise!

Jamie’s big sister broke Cohen’s heart five years earlier when she left him and their newborn son. Needless to say there’s some tension between Jamie and him when they have a chance encounter a
