A beautiful story. RJ described the struggle of a new , single parent perfectly. Ash was just adorable with his new little girl, Mia. Enter the new sexy neighbour Dr. Sean. Sean was determined to break down all of the barriers Ash had erected and win his heart. I loved it and look forward to the next book.
Single dad, hot doctor and an adorable newborn! What more could you want!!!
I had heard great things about this new series by RJ and it is just as good as described!
I loved Ash and baby Mia and felt for him just like every other new parent as they try and figure out what the hell to do with a newborn! I found the mishaps and truths comforting and really enjoyed RJ authenticity on new parenting, especially single parenting.
I found Sean totally endearing and loved that he wasn’t afraid to face his feelings and desires even though he hasn’t really had a relationship or deeper connection before. I enjoyed their back and forth between Sean and Ash and loved that they balanced each other out and always took Mia into everything they did and Sean always treated Ash and Mia as a unit. I loved the first responder’s trio; Sean, Eric, and Leo and can’t wait for their stories.
I loved Ash and Sean and my only other comment is that I wanted more! I wanted more background, especially with Sean and felt like to book/story was wrapped up really quickly and those last few chapters felt a little rush, in comparison to the rest of the book. All in all, its still a great story and I’m loving the collection of characters (and kids) RJ has created.
I don’t always gravitate to books with babies as, despite being a mother myself, I’m not overly maternal and don’t do the gooey baby thing. But the “hot neighbour” trope in Single by RJ Scott caught my attention.
Ash is a new father. He and his partner had planned a baby, arranged surrogacy and organised their future. But it turns out that Ash’s partner wasn’t as invested as Ash and left him holding the baby – literally. So, Ash now finds himself at home with a six-week-old baby by himself, and he’s starting to question his ability to cope.
Sean is an ER Doctor who lives with his best friends. They’ve just bought a house together in a new neighbourhood. When one of Sean’s friends, Eric, comes home drunk and knocks on the wrong door, disturbing Ash and waking the baby, it leads to a less than ideal first meeting between Sean and Ash. But Sean sees something in Ash that he just has to further explore.
Single has some great characters, engaging writing and enough realism with being a new parent that it took me back to the days of having a baby and how hard it is to do simple things, like eating. You learn to do it one handed! The slow build to the relationship is sweet and convincing bringing fantastic heat when Ash and Sean eventually succumb to their desires!
Anyone wanting to read some great character dynamics (including having a fireman, policeman and doctor living together) will enjoy this book. Sweet, emotional and with a hint of a sequel (I’m keen to get Brady and Eric’s story!) make Single by RJ Scott a worthwhile addition to your reading list!
I loved this story about Ash and Sean. The way the author portrays the MC's with so much heart and I really enjoyed this book especially regarding Baby Mia. Sean and his flatmates were amazing friend to have and I highly recommend this book and so looking forward to more in this series.
