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.

Excellent Single Dad Romance

I received this audiobook free for an honest review as a member of Pink Flamingo Productions Review Team. This was a very cute, single dad romance. Tori is getting out of a bad relationship, Mark needs someone to take care of his autistic son while he works. Tori fits the bill, in more ways than one. This was a great story because I learned more about autistic spectrum children. The two main characters fight their attraction. But a child is involved. The author handled this situation very delicately. The narrators did an excellent job with the characters, their personalities and the overall story. Looking forward to more in this series.

Book 1 - The Single Dads of Seattle

This is book 1 in Cox's The Single Dads of Seattle series. I perfect into to this group of single dad's mostly divorced and a bit jaded. This book gives us the story of Mark and Tori. Mark is a doctor and single dad of a special needs child and is in need of a full time care giver / therapist - which just so happens to be Tori's dream job. I love the scenario in which these two meet and I thought it was brilliant how open minded and communicative they both were - at first. Communications hindered a it as the relationship progresses but these two are just so great and I love that Tori finds her strength. Wonderful character growth with both Mark and Tori and an overall well written, perfectly narrated (love both these narrations) romance that is a perfect blend of sweet, heat and a touch of humor. A heartwarming HEA this is sure to please and while this can be read / listened to as a stand alone, I think you'll be as eager as me to listen to more of these single dads of seattle!

I received a free copy of this read at my request and I voluntarily provided this review.

Adored this!

4.5⭐️

Single Dad romances have recently become my kryptonite so I was intrigued by the premises of an entire series of single dads. Whitley Cox is a new to me author and I adored this first book in the series. It a fun, sweet, steamy and emotional story. Mark is single dad to Gabe, a simply adorable little boy. He completely captured my heart. He is on the autism spectrum and is non verbal. Tori and Mark meet at a local bar the night she out celebrating her divorce. They hit it off right away and have fantastic chemistry. Then Mark learns Tori has has a background working with special needs children he hires her on the spot. Although they try hard to fight their attraction so not to cross professional lines it becomes impossible to ignore and their connection is sizzling hot and undeniable. I loved the pacing of the story, the character development and learning about the many side characters which hopefully will continue to see through the series. I am looking forward to Dancing with the Single Dad next. Narration- Allyson Voller and Zachary Johnson’s voices captivated from the very first chapter. Their storytelling had me feeling all the emotions their characters go through from humour, pain, heartache to passion and love. They did a phenomenal job bringing this story to life.

Great Characters!

This story was incredible! It is full of fabulous characters! You have Mark, a guy who went through a terrible divorce and watched his wife abandon their autistic son Gabe. Gabe is a sweet boy who is a non-verbal autistic and smart little boy. Gabe is Mark's world and his biggest fears are failing Gabe. Then he meets Tori at a bar and falls for her instantly - luckily she is just what he needs to heal and what Gabe needs to keep progressing forward. Tori is just separated from her awful husband and she is reeling, but just as her world is getting darker, she meets Mark and Gabe - are they what she needs to heal? Is Mark too good to be true? And can Tori face ever having to leave Gabe, the little boy she loves more than words.

The narrators are fabulous! I loved the transitions and the production was fabulous! It was a great introduction to an amazing series! I would recommend this story of love, redemption, and healing to anyone! #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

Disappointed

Totally addicted to audiobooks. I do not understand all the great reviews for this book. It jumps from 3rd to 1st person making it hard to follow. Don’t waste your credit.

It was Okay

So again, having narrators who didn’t even try to change their voices .. even a little, from male to female or female to male is something I’m just not used to. The story was fine, the characters were likable enough, there was a child which is always a plus for me, but I got a little bored in the middle. The only reason I could finish it was because it was a fairly short book, so there’s that. I certainly didn’t hate it but really, it was just.. Okay.

Love this Story ❤️

This story kept my interest from the beginning. I love this group of single dads who get together and support each other. My heart goes out to Mark and his son Gabe but they do what they can to get by. Tori is wonderful and really clicks with Mark and Gabe. They both didn't have great relationships the first time around so are a bit afraid of another relationship. Once they decide to let it happen, it was beautiful! I really loved the narration too! Looking forward to listening to the next book!

I was expecting more.

This is a predictable contemporary romance, and I found parts of it annoying. It had a bunch of good points. The male narrator was excellent and really brought Mark’s chapters to life. Mark’s son Gabe is adorable and seems realistic for a boy on the spectrum. The woman’s therapy for the boy also seems very realistic. Both main characters had pretty good and likable personalities. It is a steamy romance with a charismatic single dad who is also a doctor.

Overall, I suppose that Whitley Cox’s writing style is not my cup of tea. While I appreciate that the main characters took a while before they jumped into bed together, the incessant sexual fantasies every two minutes or less really became annoying. Sometimes it happened every thirty seconds, and it had me rolling my eyes a lot. It became so frequent that I even worried about them ignoring the child. Then, after they started having sex, the story became so focused on their graphic bedroom exploits that the relationship development was too slow for me. Also, the two characters did not share their feelings enough. My last pet peeve in this audiobook was how the female narrator sounded robotic for portions of many sentences.

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.
