Summary

Most college-aged girls go to Europe to experience their sexual awakening. All I had to do was go home.

Ford Dalton isn’t the kind of man I’d look at twice—because I can’t stop looking at him at all. We can’t take our hands off each other in the bar. Back at his house, it’s our lips. And in his bed? There isn’t a single part of us that’s not on fire. One night would never be long enough for Ford to show me every delicious thing he can do to my body.

But there’s something he’s keeping from me: he’s already met the love of his life, his daughter Everly. And there’s something I’m keeping from him: I just applied for the job of my dreams, being Everly’s new nanny.

Disappointed 😞

This is #3 of the series and can be read as a standalone, but it's best to read in order to understand the dynamics of the family.

I'm sorry to say that I found the book a real let down, having just finished When Ashes Fall, by the same author, which was excellent.

I was so looking forward to reading this and it was just dull.

You didn't get to find out about the inner Ford, only how gorgeous he was, so there was no character development there.

His daughter was cute but that seemed to go waaaay over the top and as for Sydney - sheer perfection! Again there wasn't much development there and I did get the feeling that she was in the wrong job - she should have been a baker! 

The narration was absolutely shocking and I hope the author goes back to the original narrators of the series, as this really ruined it for me.

So, sorry, it's a no from me!

Total anti climax and awful narration

So gutted as I was really anticipating this 3rd book in the series.

Unfortunately it’s started off the exact same as the other two, man meets woman and sleeps with her on first night they meet and then falls madly in love and he is obsessed with her. Was hoping for a more enticing beginning or something different from the first two.

But I could of got through if it wasn’t for the male narrators voice. It was awful! The way he voices Everley is just ridiculous! The way he voiced the characters made me cringe far to much to continue. Had to abandon the book in the end as I couldn’t stand it any long. Such a shame!

Ticked all my boxes with wonderful narration

I’m loving everything about the Dalton Brothers Series but I have to say I this is my favourite so far, I fell hook line and sinker for Ford Dalton and his adorable little girl Everly and I absolutely adored Sydney Summers and once you put all three of them together you get the perfect read. If single dads are your jam look no further than The Single Dad ( The Dalton Brothers #3) you won’t be disappointed.

The narration was spot on and Summer Norton who is a new narrator to me and Thor Thom did a fantastic job with the emotion and the witty banter which really brought the characters and their story to life.

From the moment Ford and Sydney meet sparks fly, the chemistry they share is scorching hot and impossible to ignore so will they cross the line and take their friendship and working relationship one step further……
The Single Dad has all the feels, it’s emotional, it’s witty, it has wonderful characters but it was the relationship that Sydney built with Everly that took this story to another level. I urge every romance lover to one click this very special read and this book will certainly on my best reads of 2022. Looking forward to what’s coming next from the very talented Marni Mann.

WELL WORTH THE WAIT!!!!!

I have been so excited for this book come on here. I have listened to the first two books and absolutely loved them. This author know how to keep you on the edge. I just loved through all 3 books all characters were in them and kept the story line going. I would absolutely love a second book on all 3 telling their life's after and keep it going. I just in awe right now after finishing this book.

A heart warming single dad romance!

What a story! We knew of Ford Dalton’s love for his daughter from his brother’s books but Ford and Everly completely captured my heart in this book! Seeing Ford and Everly together is so heart warming from the start and made it so easy to fall in love with them. Then comes Sydney into their lives. A woman that Ford met at a bar who broke all his norms when it came to women. Something about her gets to him and she ends up in his bed that night. The next morning he tries to sneak her out but Everly wakes up early. Sydney and Everly’s interaction was so sweet and adorable! Fast forward and Sydney ends up applying to be Everly’s nanny. Will he even hire her? Can she date him and be Everly’s nanny at the same time? This single dad troupe is so incredibly good with a few twists along the way!

Summer Morton and Tor Thom did a fantastic job with the narration of this book! It was so enjoyable and I absolutely loved their voices for little Everly!

Loved this hot AF single dad!

Ford and Sydney are a HOT dad and nanny combo. I enjoyed the narrative except the “Everly voice”. That sounded off to me. Otherwise, all good!

I just had more hopes….

This was so difficult to listen to…. The male performer reading the woman’s part sounded like someone from SNL impersonating Donald Trump… when he read the little girl’s parts, it sounded as though the little girl was mentally challenged.

Overall, the story was difficult for me to hear over the performance. Both of the actors simply read the book, it lacked the actual performance that the previous books held. And the lack of spice…

Read the book…

I wish that I would have read the book instead. I love the Dalton brothers, and the story is great, but the male narration is awful. His female voices are cringe worthy, and very distracting.

Ehhhh

I thought the story was beautiful but I did not enjoy the narration. The spice scenes seemed overdone and almost unbelievable.
