KU Sunday Spotlight by KUBR + OCA

Hello and welcome back to the KU Sunday Spotlight, brought to you by KU Book Reviews + the One-Click Addict Support Group. This week, I’m bringing you a sexy single dad, his sweet waitress and all the reason why you should read it. Enjoy!


I could love this woman, this sweet, awkward, spitfire of a woman who was only afraid of me for a split second when we met. Who doesn’t see me as a dad drowning in the weight of the fucked-up past. I could love her.
Shit. I could love her.

Real talk time: I just finished reading a book called Single Dad’s Waitress and, I’ll be honest, I was very nearly put off by the title. I’m not proud of that {especially since the title does, in fact, reflect the book well} but, ahhh, it just kinda—please forgive me, Amelia Wilde—seemed a wee bit cheesy.

I know. I know that’s an awful thing to say, but what I’m trying to convey is this: don’t judge this book by its title. Don’t be like silly ol’ me and nearly miss out on a fun read. Single Dad’s Waitress is super sexy and enjoyable. Ryder + Valentine have intense chemistry, and their relationship is a good mix of awkward moments and steamy, swoony romance.

It’s not perfect. There were some timeline issues that I found to be a touch jarring and a slight feeling of missing puzzle pieces for a time, but—and it’s a big BUT—there’s just something incredibly, so effortlessly charming about this book. Single Dad’s Waitress is a sweet small-town romance, and it’s made all the better by how aware the characters are of their cutesy town. Not only that, it has the panty-melting deliciousness of Ryder, the H.O.T titular single dad.

He’s so… mmm. And when he’s mmm’ing with Valentine, I couldn’t contain my smiles. It made happy. It wooed me. It charmed me—effortlessly, as I said above—and, more than anything, it allowed me to get a little lost in a story that’s light on angst, high on feel good feelings and titled, I’ve come to realize, just so.

Kissing Ryder is like being right in the center of a two-person fireworks show that begins somewhere in my chest and explodes out all the way to my fingertips.

As of 08.13.2017, Single Dad’s Waitress is available with Kindle Unlimited.
