A blazing connection between single dads from opposite sides of the tracks is fraught with secrets and lies, and a happily ever after is impossible, unless they take a chance on love.

Saved a long time ago by a man who saw a diamond in the rough, Logan is a single dad and the owner of Redcars Automotive, a haven for those in need. With custody of his daughter under scrutiny, his life is upended when a journalist looking for a story slips into his life without him realizing. Logan doesn’t want Gray more than once, but when sharing the secrets of his past won’t get the journalist to leave, what else can he do?

After blaming himself for missing signs that his son was ill, Gray feels Ben is safer with his ex-wife and her new pediatrician husband. With a heart heavy with guilt, and his documentary company failing to find a story, he’s searching for some spark in his life to fix everything. When a series of arson attempts draws him to Los Angeles, he meets the secretive, scarred, and tattooed Logan, who makes him an offer that Gray knows he should refuse.

This opposites-attract love story features two single dads reaching a crossroads in life, angst, secrets, arson, intimidation, and a found family so tightly connected that nothing can break it apart.

“I’m okay,” I muttered to the room.

“Talking to yourself, Logan?” Izzy said from the doorway.

I spun to face her as she slipped inside and shut us in. I felt trapped, but she hadn’t closed the door on purpose because she didn’t know I was claustrophobic. Hell, she didn’t know a tenth of the things about me that’d make her stop and think before shutting us into this small room. She floated in on a cloud of perfume, her ivory skin flawless, every hair in place, and jewelry that would keep the garage afloat for years around her neck, in her earlobes, and weighing down her hands. I’d never have gone out of my way to go with a high-class girl like her, but she’d gone out of hers to find a bad boy. I couldn’t even regret that night, or the joyride in a stolen car, or the arrest, or everything after that… because out of all of it came Cassidy.

And she was every good part of me. She was everything.

“Izzy,” I acknowledged.

“Isabel,” she corrected, and fiddled with the handle of her purse. “Parker suggested that I talk to you alone before we reconsider the custody arrangement—”

“Which was made official with a court order two years ago,” I interrupted. “So, if we’re here to discuss me having Cassidy for more time, then I can agree to that without spending money on lawyers.” Money that I don’t have.

“Logan, stop.” She held up a hand, and I saw the French-polished nails—she used to wear her nails longer, painted them scarlet, but this wasn’t the Izzy I’d known oh so briefly, this was the new, improved Isabel, who wanted to slot back into the world she’d once tried to escape with her walk on the wild side. “It’s not that.”

“So, if you don’t need me to take her for more time, then what are we doing here?”

“Parker has been offered a long-term role within his family’s bank in Europe. Switzerland, to be exact.” She used words, but the rushing sound in my ears meant I couldn’t string them together in any order. Panic gripped my chest. I couldn’t breathe. Switzerland? That meant…

They want to take Cassidy.

“No,” I managed. “No.”

“Think of the opportunities—”


“Please be reasonable—”

“You’re not taking our daughter to goddamned Switzerland.”

She winced at the harsh words, but I wasn’t going to be manipulated into thinking I was wrong in my reaction. How in God’s name would I see her? Would she fly back? Would I go there? How could I go there? Izzy was still speaking in that low, wheedling tone that reminded me of Parker, as if she had the right to stand there and rip my life apart.

There’s a lot of heart in this opposites attract story

SD06-PridePride by R.J. Scott

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I wanted to fall in love with this book because the premise of it intrigued me and, in the main, I got my wish.

Both Grey and Logan are compelling characters, each with unique quirks that made them interesting to read about and get invested in.

I very much liked the found family at the heart of Logan’s garage, all of who will be getting their own stories in a spin-off series coming next year.

Grey’s son Ben and his ex-wife and her new husband were also positive figures, no evil exes here, although Logan’s former partner Izzy, mother of his cute as a button daughter Cassidy, came close on occasion.

Where I’ve dropped a star is in the wider story about the investigation that Grey is looking into for his documentary.

It just felt a little flat for me but it may be that elements of it will continue in the spin-off, but I’m not sure how, given Nick (of book five) comes to the rescue at the end here.

I also didn’t buy fully into the speed of Grey and Logan’s falling in love. Did I believe they were attracted to each other and had the potential to fall, absolutely, I think I just wanted a bit more on page conversation after they’d admitted it could be more.

The ‘I love yous’ just felt a bit too fast given how little time they’d actually spent together.

Still, both of those are small concerns and neither takes away from the overall enjoyment of seeing two dads who couldn’t be more different, find the strength to make themselves vulnerable.

It was also cool to get a guest appearance from everyone’s favourite firefighter Eric, and get a name check of his best mate, our favourite cop Leo!

The New Guy cover


My name is Hudson Newgate, but my teammates call me New Guy.

That was my nickname in Chicago, too. And Vancouver. That’s what happens when you keep getting traded. Brooklyn is my last chance, especially after my poor performance last season.

But I can make this work. The new guy knows to keep his head down and shoot the puck. The new guy puts the game first.

What he doesn’t do is hook up with the other new guy—a hot athletic trainer who lives in my building. Gavin needs this job with my team. He’s a single dad with responsibilities.

We can’t be a couple. My arrogant agent–who’s also my father–will lose his mind if I’m dating a dude. And my team needs me to score goals, not whip up a media circus.

Too bad Gavin and I are terrible at resisting each other…
