Publisher's Summary

He needs someone to work with his son. She needs a job. They need to keep their hands to themselves. 

Welcome to Seattle, the Emerald City and home to The Single Dads of Seattle. Ten sexy single fathers who play poker every Saturday night, have each other's backs, love their children without quarter, and hope to one day find love again.

This is Mark's story....

Single dad of Seattle Dr. Mark Herron can't believe anyone would celebrate their divorce. The dissolution of his marriage left him and his son with a huge hole to fill in their home - and their hearts. So when he overhears a lovely stranger and her friends celebrating the end of her marriage, he's mystified - and then intrigued - by her determination to put the past behind her. But when he learns that Tori Jones needs a job, he knows this can't be a coincidence.

Tori might be telling the world nothing's got her down, but the truth is she's hit rock bottom. Her husband didn't just cheat on her, he took all her money, including her college fund, which means her marriage is over, and so is her dream to go to grad school and help children with special needs. So when a handsome stranger offers her a job caring for his special needs son, she knows she can't turn it down...

Even if what she's feeling for Mark is far from professional.

Now Mark's finding it hard to keep his hands to himself, and Tori's struggling to keep her thoughts from straying to dangerous territory. Will they be able to keep their distance from each other, or will being hired by the sexy single dad be Tori's biggest problem of all?

Note: This book can be enjoyed as a stand-alone. It includes lots of steamy scenes, cursing, and, of course, as with all my books, this has an HEA and no cliff-hanger or cheating. If you like single dads who take charge, this book is for you.

Original Story Line, Great Narration!

Hired by the Single Dad was my first book by this author and I went in completely blind as I do most books so I was definitely pleasantly surprised by both the storyline and the writing.

Mark is a divorced single dad and also a doctor so he works long hours. His son is also on the Autism spectrum and the intervention therapist that works with him recently quit so his plate is more than full. Tori has spent the better part of her marriage working multiple jobs putting her husband through dental school so he could up and cheat on her with a hygenist and kick her out of their house. In a strange twist of fate, she works with special needs children and Mark has offered her a job with his son, despite their attraction to each other and the knowledge that things could get messy.

There were a couple of smaller parts of the book I struggled with, but they didn't take apart from the story overall. It was generally engaging and I enjoyed it from start to finish. I thought Mark and Tori had great chemistry and I loved how good Tori was with Gabe. I thought both of the narrators did a great job overall. Both were pleasant to listen to and complimented the story. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future. #TheFlock #PinkFlamingoProductions

love it

One crazy night out with her friends, Tori is celebrating her divorce, and looking for a job. Her education is children with special needs. At the same bar, Mark over hears her conversation. She would be perfect for a position he has to fill. Mark is the father to Gabe, a cute, adorable special needs boy. He needs one on one assistance. He arranges for her to meet Gabe and offers her the job.
Their attraction to each other can jeopardize her job. One mistake from her past puts Gabe into danger.
Tori and Mark are a perfect couple. and Gabe is a remarkable character in this story.
Zachary Johnson and Allyson Voller are amazing narrators. they captured the personalities of each character with perfection.

Hired By the Single Dad

What a perfect romance. Falling in love with your boss is definitely not what is supposed to happen but luckily the boss feels the same way. And when you add a child into the mix it just makes a perfect story to listen to. I loved all the characters in this book and the way it was written flowed beautifully.

single dad/ forbidden romance!

Cute and a little angsty single dad/falling for the boss romance.
This is book one of a single dads of Seattle series and it features Mark and Tori and his absolutely precious son, Gabe, who is on the autism spectrum. Tori is hired by Mark as his son's aide and they have immediate attraction.

You know the deal, there's the should we/shouldn't we part of the storyline typical of this trope, but, along the way we get to fall in love with all 3 of these characters.
The author also does a great job introducing several other single dads who are part of this little group and are part of eachother support group.

Tori is the perfect person for this adorable dad and son duo! She has a heart of gold as well as the training and compassion needed for this job. Mark is pretty darn swoony except for one part in the story where I want him suffer.

There are parts of this I really wish were more fleshed out, but overall I enjoyed it and I think I'm going to enjoy the rest of this series as well!

Narration by Allyson and Zachary was fantastic!

Sweet center with a spicy edge.

Everything about a Whitley Cox story makes me want to smile. Hired by the Single Dad brings the funny wrapped in heart and romance. Mark and Tori are at a crossroads after some heartaching personal setbacks. Love has not been kind the first time around, but then again sometimes romance can prove sweeter the second time around. Delicious has a sweet center with a spicy edge.

Hired by the Single Dad

Wow I loved this book! There is nothing sexier then a Dad that loves his child unconditionally. Mark meet Tori on a chance meeting, but knew she would be perfect to help him with his autistic son, Gabe. Mark and Tori instantly were attracted to each other but neither one of them would take their relationship past professional for Gabe's sake. Until one night. I can't wait to see who the next book will be about! Zachary Johnson and Allyson Voller were both incredible narrating these characters.

Amazing story and performance! I'm in love!

I adore books with single dads. I adore books featuring children on the spectrum even more. This was a wonderful story of two people who find themselves together and fighting through baggage and past history. It was beautifully performed by Allyson Voller and Zachary Johnson, both of whom I just discovered and am in love with their voices. They pack perfect intensity, filled with emotions that make you feel everything along with them. I can't say enough good things about this book. Seriously highly recommend it!!!

Marvelous read

Mark, Tory and Gabe will melt your heart. You'll laugh and cry with them. Especially chapter 14 broke my heart, and from there until the end a lot of emotional moments. But the beautiful HEA made for all the suffering. Spectacular audiobook.
