Real Thing: A Small Town Grumpy Single Dad Romance by Cassie-Ann L. Miller

06/27/2024
I got cold feet and I ran, jilting America’s favorite bachelor at the altar. On national television. No worries. Grumpy, jaded, hot-as-hellfire Nolan Brighton, to the rescue. One middle-of-the-night phone call was all it took. In my lowest moment, my grumpy boss pulled up in the getaway car, whisking me and my poofy wedding dress away from the train station. No questions asked. He offered me a safe couch to crash on, a broad shoulder to lean on, a perfect pair of lips to dream about. Now here I am, living under his roof. Working at his bar. Fitting seamlessly into the life he’s built for himself and his adorable daughter. If I didn’t know better, I’d almost think this hot mess was romantic. But I do know better. The divorced single dad is all the things I know I shouldn’t want. He’s way too serious. Way too grumpy. Way too handsome for his own good. He says he’s overwhelmed from raising his daughter and running his bar on his own. He says there’s no space in his life for a relationship. Meanwhile, I’m actively searching for love. After the epic mistakes I’ve made, I want the real thing this time. I want the ring, the babies, the fairytale. I want my Prince Charming, dammit. And Nolan is the last man who’d ever apply for the job. So what happens when his house starts to feel like my home? When I start to love his daughter like my own? Against my better judgment, I’m falling more and more in love with this simple, little life every day. But I really can’t afford to get my heart broken again. Giving Nolan my body would be a dumb move. Giving him my heart would be an even bigger mistake. But before I even realize what’s happening, I’m doing exactly that. Real Thing is a steamy, laugh-out-loud, small town, single dad romance. It is set in small town Iowa and is book four in the Brighton Family series.
