I’m a full-time single dad to three daughters and CFO at Cloverleigh Farms. I don’t have time to fall in love—I’m too busy trying to run a business, keep the red socks out of the white laundry, and get the damn pillowcases on without owing a dollar to the swear jar.

Sure, Frannie Sawyer is beautiful and sweet, but she’s twenty-seven, the boss’s daughter, and my new part-time nanny—which means she’s completely off-limits. It’s bad enough I can’t stop fantasizing about her, what kind of jerk would I be if I acted on the impulse to kiss her?

(Exactly the kind of jerk you’re thinking.)

Actually, I’m worse than that—because I didn’t stop with a kiss, and now I can’t stay away. She makes me feel like myself again. She reminds me what it’s like to want something just for me. She’s everything I ever needed, but nothing I ever imagined.

I’m a former Marine. I should have had the strength to resist her from the start.

But I didn’t. And now I have to choose between the life I want and the life she deserves.

Even if it means giving her up.

RECENZJA/REVIEW:

 

 

Melanie Harlow potrafi w przepiękny sposób uzależnić czytelnika od swoich opowieści. I to samo spotkało mnie w trakcie czytania Irresistible. Jestem wręcz omotana historią Macka i Frannie. Książki, które zawierają wątek samotnego ojca są jednymi z moich ulubionych, bo często pokazują, ile samotny rodzic jest w stanie poświęcić dla dobra swoich dzieci. Nawet, jeśli kosztem jest własne szczęście.

 

Declan McAllister jest samotnym ojcem, wychowującym trzy córki, który pracuje w Cloverleigh Farms jako dyrektor finansowy. Poza pracą i dziećmi nie ma czasu na nic innego, więc jego fantazje o najmłodszej z córek właścicieli Cloverleigh Farms muszą pozostać właśnie tam- w świecie fantazji. Nie dość, że mężczyzna nie ma czasu na dziewczynę w swoim życiu, to jeszcze żyje w przeświadczeniu, że po katastrofie, jaką było jego małżeństwo i okropny rozwód- nie ma kompletnie nic do zaoferowania takiej dziewczynie, jak Frannie. Poza tym, że dziewczyna jest dużo młodsza, jest córką właścicieli i sama pracuje w Coverleigh, to jeszcze jest częściowo nianią jego córek. A to jest dodatkowym powodem, dlaczego nie powinien o niej marzyć.

 

Och, Mack! Nic mnie tak nie kręci w książce, jak oddany ojciec, który stawia dobrobyt swoich dzieci ponad wszystko inne. A Mack właśnie taki jest. Mimo, że czasami ma chwile, kiedy najchętniej schowałby się w dziurze, by po prostu odsapnąć. Jest on dojrzałym mężczyzną, niewiarygodnie seksownym, który sprawi, że serce Ci się roztopi, a majtki spadną na podłogę. Jego codzienne zmagania sprawiły, że dopingowałam go jak szalona cheerleaderka i zaciskałam wszystkie mięśnie, by w końcu udało mu się znaleźć złoty środek i po prostu być szczęśliwym. Frannie natomiast to tak dobra duszyczka, że jest idealną kandydatką na drugą połowę Macka. Mimo, że całe życie była chroniona przez własnych rodziców ze względu na swój stan zdrowia, teraz postanowiła wziąć swój los we własne ręce i być niezależną. A nic nie okaże jej niezależności bardziej, niż otwarcie własnego biznesu, jakim jest sprzedaż makaroników, których pieczenie jest jej pasją od lat. To samo dotyczy jej uczuć do Macka. Musi skłonić go do podjęcia szansy, w innym wypadku nigdy ze sobą nie będą.

 

Irresistible to wzruszająca historia, pełna dziecięcego śmiechu, zapachu domowego jedzenia i nadziei, że niezależnie od sytuacji życiowej, każdy zasługuje na miłość i szczęście. To także dowód na to, że jesteś w stanie osiągnąć wszystko o czym marzysz, wystarczy tylko w siebie uwierzyć. Melanie Harlow po raz kolejny wypełniła moje serce pięknem swoich słów i już nie mogę się doczekać pozostałych części serii Cloverleigh Farms.

 

 

ENG:

 

 

Melanie Harlow is able to make the reader addicted to her stories in a beautiful way. And the same happened to me while reading Irresistible. I’m downright charmed by Mack and Frannie’s story. Books that contain single father trope are one of my favorites because they often show how much a single parent is able to sacrifice for the sake of his children. Even if the expense is your own happiness.

 

Declan McAllister is a single father, raising three daughters, who works at Cloverleigh Farms as CFO. Outside of work and his children, there is no time for anything else, so his fantasies about the youngest daughter of the owners of Cloverleigh Farms must remain right there – in the world of fantasy. Not only that this man doesn’t have time for a girlfriend in his life, he still lives in the conviction that after the catastrophe what was his marriage and terrible divorce – there is absolutely nothing in him to offer a girl like Frannie. In addition to the fact that the girl is much younger, she’s the daughter of the owners and she works in Coverleigh too, she’s still working partially as a nanny of his daughters. And this is an additional reason why he shouldn’t dream about her.

 

Oh, Mack! Nothing turns me on in a book like a devoted father who puts his children’s well-being above all else. And Mack is like that. Although sometimes he has moments when he would hide in the hole just to relax for a minute. He’s a mature man, incredibly sexy, who will make your heart melt and make your panties fall to the floor. His daily struggles made me root for him like a crazy cheerleader and tighten all my muscles so that he could finally find a balance and just be happy. Frannie, on the other hand, is such a good soul that she’is the perfect candidate for Mack’s other half. Although she was the entire life sheltered by her own parents because of her health, she decided now to take her destiny into her own hands and be independent. And nothing will show her independence more than opening her own business and selling macaroons, which baking has been her passion for years. The same applies to her feelings for Mack. She must convince him to take a chance, otherwise they’ll never be together.

 

Irresistible is a heartwarming story, full of child’s laughter, the smell of home-cooked meals and the hope that regardless of the life situation, everyone deserves love and happiness. It’s also the proof that you’re able to achieve everything you dream about, you just have to believe in yourself. Melanie Harlow once again filled my heart with the beauty of her words and I can’t wait for the rest of the Cloverleigh Farms series.

Excerpt:

 

I was holding my breath.

I wasn’t even sure why, but it was something about the way Mack was looking at me. And the tension in his body—the taut muscles in his neck. The grip of his fingers on the edge of the counter. The set of his jaw. It gave the impression of restraint. Like he was holding himself back.

Something unfamiliar hummed in the air between us. I could feel it—he wanted me the way I wanted him.

No wonder I couldn’t breathe.

Then he cleared his throat and turned away from me, cutting off the current. “Sure. Everybody needs to make mistakes now and then.”

I’d forgotten I’d even asked the question.

He turned the sink on, rinsed his dishes, and placed them in the dishwasher. I stood there staring at his muscular back, at the width of his shoulders, at the snug fit of his jeans on his butt. If I were his and he were mine, I’d go over and wrap my arms around his waist, press my cheek to his back. Then he’d turn around, winding his arms around me. He’d lower his lips to mine, and—

“I should get you home,” he said, interrupting my fantasy. “Want to grab your coat?”

“Sure.” But I didn’t really want to leave. I wanted to stay in this warm, chaotic house with him and the girls. Pretend I belonged here. Pretend I belonged to him.
