As a divorced single father, I live by three rules:1. Make sure every day my daughter, Paisley, knows she’s number one in my life. No. Matter. What.2. Keep contact with my cheating ex-wife to a minimum.3. Turn Maxwell Wineries into a legacy that keeps Paisley set for life.
When I hire Lexi to look after my daughter, I realize I need another rule: don’t pursue Paisley’s nanny.But even if I had that rule it wouldn’t matter. Because I'm breaking it already.
Layla Hagen does family-centric series like nobody else! And even a romance-cynic like me loves the romance of her books. Promise Me Forever is everything you could want it to be.
Tate is a single dad to his daughter Paisley. He works hard, and he dotes on his daughter. And rich or not, he’s down to earth, kind, and loyal to his family. Lexi is an elementary school teacher who becomes his nanny during her summer off, trying to make money to help her parents. Rich man/poor girl romance doesn’t usually do it for me, but his wealth is nothing more than a single part of who he is, which I love. It hasn’t changed him, or given him that snooty attitude you see in novels. He is just a good man, as Lexi is a good woman. And their chemistry is great… sweet and sexy, magnetic.
Just as lovely as the two of them is his family. His brothers, parents, grandmother, cousins… all a tight family unit. I love that dynamic so much! Can’t wait for the next book!
