A single dad romance coming from Fabiola Francisco October 7, 2020.
Coming to Kindle Unlimited
I didn’t choose the role of single dad…it chose me. I’ve been picking up the broken pieces my wife left when she walked out on my daughter and me. The last thing I’m looking for is a relationship.
Then a spunky blonde with a career filled with instability starts making rounds, making me question if I can trust another woman. My daughter isn’t the only one curious about the country star. I’m not a blind man despite how scarred my heart is. She’s gorgeous, kind, and loves my child. What more can a man ask for?
As I get to know her, she adds sunshine into my grey life, and being with her reminds me of the man I once was. Our lives are destined to take different paths, though, and I’ll do whatever it takes to protect my daughter from the spotlight, even if it means giving up my second chance.
I turn my hand and link our fingers together. My heart leaps in my chest, but instead of releasing me, Gavin tightens his hold.
I turn to look at him. His other hand goes to my hair.
“I haven’t done this in a really long time, but you draw me in.” His words are a whisper. “Even when I swore I’d never give another woman the opportunity to break my heart.”
I close my eyes and take a deep breath hearing him say this. When I reopen them, I stare into pained ones. Squeezing his hand, I offer a small smile and place my hand over the one in my hair.
“I don’t need to know what you went through, and if you ever want to tell me, you will. I don’t take the heart for granted. I know how valuable it is.”
Gavin nods, his chest rising and falling with a heavy breath.
