Daddy Issues by Liv Morris – REVIEW & EXCERPT –


Lucas is a no-nonsense kind of guy. His life is ordered and runs smoothly. He was firmly in the no relationship camp, until he met Maggie. Maggie is trying to find herself in the big city of Manhattan, failed interview after failed interview, she is trying to figure things out. When she runs into Lucas Shaw, she can’t help but be intrigued by him. However, Lucas knows he can never be what Maggie deserves and he lets her walk away. When Lucas gets the surprise of a lifetime, he turns to his friend to help him out, and his friend recommends a great nanny that Lucas has never met, or so he thought. When he opens the door there stands Maggie, Lucas has a strict rule that he doesn’t fraternize with employees, but Maggie makes it hard to stay away. Will Maggie be able to break down Lucas’ self-imposed walls, or will Lucas remain alone forever?

Liv Morris is a new to me author, and I’m a sucker for single dad books. As a whole this was a good book. I thoroughly enjoyed the banter between Maggie and Lucas and the way she didn’t put up with his crap. She may have been a single girl struggling in Manhattan, but she was still a strong character. Lucas was super closed off at the beginning of the book and I really did like watching him open up. However, I felt like the beginning of the book was so thought out and well written, granted there is a lot of internal monologue that happens, but I felt like the end was rushed. I wanted more of a buildup between Lucas and Maggie while she was taking care of Esme. I wasn’t disappointed by any means but did feel like I wanted just a little bit more. All in all, this was a quick read and full of surprises!

Deliciously steamy!”–Helena Hunting, New York Times bestselling author

Daddy Issues, an all-new, irresistible single dad romance from USA Today bestselling author Liv Morris, is available now!

A single billionaire, a young nanny, and a surprise baby.

My life was ordered. Smooth and neat like my scotch. I had arranged relationships with a beginning and an end. No romantic attachments was my motto.

Then I met Maggie. A beautiful, young woman trying to find her place in the gritty world of Manhattan. She deserved more than a jaded man like me, so I let her walk away.

But fate stepped in and an ex-lover surprised me with a baby she claimed was mine. Desperate I hired a well-recommended nanny sight unseen. When she knocked at the door of my penthouse, I opened it to find Maggie standing on the other side.

I watched Maggie lovingly care for my child and wanted to learn to be a father to my daughter. But having Maggie so close was dangerous. She was a terrifying ray of sunshine that threatened to thaw my frozen heart.

I needed her for my child.

At least that’s what I told myself.

Until it was too late.

I discovered a new species of male in Manhattan: men in suits. They were everywhere. Walking down the street. Riding the subway. Standing in line for coffee right behind me. The city was a yummy box of man candy, and I had a hard time passing up the sweets.

I appraised the latest suit as he ordered coffee. He was a head taller than everyone else. Light scruff scattered across his tight, slice-of-country-ham jawline in a perfect touch of masculinity.

He wore a midnight blue power suit paired with a sky-colored tie. Gold cufflinks peeked out of his sleeves, with a faceted diamond that needed its own zip code.

I lowered my gaze to the cut of his pants. Tight. Euro. My preferred country when it came to men’s clothing. I loved the sporty Abercrombie look in college, but New York City converted me to brands like Armani and Hugo Boss. Tailored. Slick. Just like him. He resembled an Abercrombie model all grown up, the best of both worlds.

Mr. Armani pushed his fingers through his perfectly styled hair, but every strand resumed its previous position. Was this the kind of sorcery men in suits possessed?
