I’m a full-time single dad to three daughters and CFO at Cloverleigh Farms. I don’t have time to fall in love—I’m too busy trying to run a business, keep the red socks out of the white laundry, and get the damn pillowcases on without owing a dollar to the swear jar.

Sure, Frannie Sawyer is beautiful and sweet, but she’s twenty-seven, the boss’s daughter, and my new part-time nanny—which means she’s completely off-limits. It’s bad enough I can’t stop fantasizing about her, what kind of jerk would I be if I acted on the impulse to kiss her?

(Exactly the kind of jerk you’re thinking.)

Actually, I’m worse than that—because I didn’t stop with a kiss, and now I can’t stay away. She makes me feel like myself again. She reminds me what it’s like to want something just for me. She’s everything I ever needed, but nothing I ever imagined.

I’m a former Marine. I should have had the strength to resist her from the start.

But I didn’t. And now I have to choose between the life I want and the life she deserves.

Even if it means giving her up.

I was holding my breath.

I wasn’t even sure why, but it was something about the way Mack was looking at me. And the tension in his body—the taut muscles in his neck. The grip of his fingers on the edge of the counter. The set of his jaw. It gave the impression of restraint. Like he was holding himself back.

Something unfamiliar hummed in the air between us. I could feel it—he wanted me the way I wanted him.

No wonder I couldn’t breathe.

Then he cleared his throat and turned away from me, cutting off the current. “Sure. Everybody needs to make mistakes now and then.”

I’d forgotten I’d even asked the question.

He turned the sink on, rinsed his dishes, and placed them in the dishwasher. I stood there staring at his muscular back, at the width of his shoulders, at the snug fit of his jeans on his butt. If I were his and he were mine, I’d go over and wrap my arms around his waist, press my cheek to his back. Then he’d turn around, winding his arms around me. He’d lower his lips to mine, and—

“I should get you home,” he said, interrupting my fantasy. “Want to grab your coat?”

“Sure.” But I didn’t really want to leave. I wanted to stay in this warm, chaotic house with him and the girls. Pretend I belonged here. Pretend I belonged to him.

Irresistible by Melanie Harlow is everything a romance book should be. Mack and Frannie's story is so authentic, and it features real life qualities, that every parent feels, at least once in their life time. Let me clear that up a little bit, if you do not have children, Melanie's words are so pure and accurate, that you will feel what it really feels like to be a parent after reading Irresistible. She nailed the parenting aspect. This non angst book, is light with a lot of different, but wonderful emotions. The purity of some of the characters was refreshing, it is not done that way often, but I am honestly not surprised because this authors writing style is why I continuously come back to her again and again. Mack and Frannie's book is about taking chances. Doing things that you are scared to do. It was heartwarming story that left my heart more than satisfied.

Mack is a retired marine. A 37 year old single dad and the CFO for Cloverleigh Farms. His days surround his kids and his job. He has no time for himself, and can barely even remember what he did an hour ago. He is friendly, with an easy going personality, but he is not your typical man whore.

Frannie is a 27 year old that works for her family's farm. She is pure and hasn't really had a chance to spread her wings that far. She feels like she doesn't really exist in the world she is surrounded with. She loves to bake, especially macaroons. She is sweet, but kinda shy in the same sense.

After harboring a secret crush for quite a while, all it takes is a snow storm to set the motion on which; things play out. But what happens when the life you wanted isn't the life the other deserves?

*I recommend this book.
