For The Love of English by A.M. Hargrove
Single dad, Beckley Bridges, is sexy as hell. No, really, he’s the hottest thing since the sun was created. Honest to God, crack an egg on him and the thing will sizzle. So what’s the problem? He’s also a gigantic jerk. I hate the bastard. I try to avoid him at all costs. But for some reason, everywhere I go he seems to show up. Only the real issue is his daughter, English. She’s an adorable quirky first-grader who’s the sweetest thing since iced tea. And she’s one of my students but also the love of his life. So I have to deal with him on a professional level. It’s not easy. On a scale of easy to hard, dealing with Beckley Bridges is like nails screeching across a blackboard. But when English’s mother tries to gain custody after abandoning her on Beckley’s doorstep as an infant, he’ll do anything possible to keep English under his roof. That’s how he ends up propositioning me. And crazy as it sounds? I find myself considering it. This is a full-length novel that includes mature content not suitable younger readers.
Oh where do I begin with this beautiful gem of a book! I can honestly say this book evoked so many emotions out of me that I couldn't read it fast enough to find out what's next!
First thing I need to touch on is English. Omg that little girl was nothing short of a hoot and at times reminded me of my daughter at that age! I laughed so hard at pretty much every time she popped up. Which is lots. The classroom scene with in the first five chapters. I was laughing so hard I had to read it to my husband. Which led to him laughing and me laughing harder which really hurts right now with my back being out. Anyway, back on topic, when you read the first four to five chapters. You will totally get what I mean and it just keeps getting better from there.
Beck is a very complex character. We get little snippets of his insight in the first two parts of this book and he is one complicated man that holds his emotions guarded close to his chest. You honestly do want to hate him at times but he seriously redeems himself!
Sheridan is such a sweet woman. But she has a sass about her which I absolutely love. When you put her and Beck together, there is some serious tension between them that just screams off the pages.
Throughout the book, you get really emotionally invested in what is happening to these three people and your heart breaks for poor English. But she has Beck and Sheridan there for her to make sure she is under the rainbow.
Overall, this is one brilliant book that makes you feel like you are there with them. Watching every single bit. It's sweet, sassy, funny and scorching at times. I highly recommend snagging this bad boy up! You will not regret it!
One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, USA Today bestselling author, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn't do something soon, it would be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So she made a quick decision to quit her job and reinvented herself as a Naughty and Nice Romance Author.
She fancies herself all of the following: Reader, Writer, Dark Chocolate Lover, Ice Cream Worshipper, Coffee Drinker (swears the coffee, chocolate, and ice cream should be added as part of the USDA food groups), Lover of Grey Goose (and an extra dirty martini), #WalterThePuppy Lover, and if you’re ever around her for more than five minutes, you’ll find out she’s a non-stop talker.
