One Small Thing
"Daddy" is not a title
Rue Murray wanted, but he never thought he'd have sex with a woman
either. Now he's the unwitting father of a newborn named Alice. Between
bartending and cosmetology school, Rue doesn't have time for babies, but
he can't give her up. What Rue needs is a babysitter, and he's running
out of options. He's on the verge of quitting school to watch Alice
himself when he remembers his reclusive new neighbor, Erik. Erik Van
Nuys is a sci-fi novelist with anxiety issues to spare. He doesn't like
people in general, and he likes babies even less. Still, with his
royalties dwindling, he could use the extra cash. Reluctantly, he takes
on the role of manny-and even more reluctantly, he finds himself falling
for Alice and her flamboyant father. Rue and Erik are as different as
two people can be, and Alice is the unlikeliest of babies, but Rue has
never been happier than when Alice and Erik are by his side. At least,
not until he receives an offer that puts all his dreams within reach and
he's forced to choose: the future he's always wanted, or the family he
thought he never did
Well.....I liked the story and the personality of the characters. I loved how Alice brought everyone together. I also loved the unconventional family that she brought together.
My only beef and it is only me because this is just a personal preference is that when I read I like more masculine leads with m/m. Rue and Erik were not my normal leads choice but the story was still sweet and I will read the next one to find out what happens next.
I did love the quirkiness of Erik and how he over came so many challenges to finally be free of his own demons so he could find love.
