Summary

I knew better. My heart doesn't care....

This wasn't supposed to happen. Marshal Howard is a death wish wrapped in mystery. Over six feet of hulking muscle that screams "leave me the hell alone". Cold, rude, insanely overprotective single dad. Everyone in our little town warned me to stay far, far away. I didn't listen.  

I answered the castoff's nanny ad because no one else would. I got too close. I saw through his vicious reputation. I found the impossible. A call to reckless nights entangled and on fire. My destroyer in every kiss. A man who's turning my heart inside out, making me a fool.  

So what if his pillow talk tears the stars from the sky and lays them in my trembling fingers? I haven't lost my mind.  

If it was just the bad blood with him and my family, maybe we'd work through this. Maybe we'd find paradise. Just me, him, and that adorable little girl.  

But surprises come in threes. Like the lines on the pregnancy test.  

How do I love this beast and have his baby when fate keeps giving us a big fat middle finger?  

From Wall Street Journal best-selling author Nicole Snow - a single dad romance with heart! Total stand-alone novel, an alpha male protector off his chain, and a heartwarming happily ever after.

I ran out of tissues!

Why is it that every time I read a Nicole Snow creation my emotions get away from me? Of course, she did it again, this time with Surprise Daddy.

Marshal Howard was a man bent on avenging the death of his brothers in a mission gone wrong. Known as Castoff in the community, he falls for Sadie, a nanny he hired for Mia, his daughter.

Sadie, he realizes too late, was the sister of the man he blames for his comrade's deaths.

The moment Marshal realizes that he and his daughter cannot live without Sadie, Fate intervenes and tries to separate him from his love.

Of course, at the end, both Marshal and Sadie find their happiness, but good golly, Nicole Snow sure knows how to twist the knife into this poor reader's heart!

Add to the fact that I was listening to the audible version of the book, which was narrated by Aletha George and Douglas Berger (swooning here), all I can say is, after a marathon of almost six hours immersed in this story, I find myself a wreck 'coz damn, Marshal and Sadie's story was Just. So. Good!

Dear reader, grab those tissues and hold on tight!

If you can handle a** hat and pointless characters then enjoy.

This book was frustrating for me. The narration was good, the problem was the storyline. There are parts in the book where I had to rewind to make sure I didn’t miss something because it jumped and made no sense. It made it hard to understand the story progression, timelines, and relate to the characters because you keep feeling like you missed something. The relationship of the brother is irritating and unrealistic. I kept wondering why people didn’t tell him to F*** right off, or how he could even have a wife who cared for him. He was abusive all around. The moms mental condition was not realistic and a bit insulting to real people who have metal health struggles, and artist who have artistic blocks too TBH. The H acted like the mafia or something was chasing him in the end and it was unrealistic and un- relatable. The love story was not developed, it was like one day they were just there and the next they were willing to die for each other. These characters changed their feelings, ideas, minds, personalities on the drop of a dime. I kept listening hoping it would improve, it never does. Save your credit or money. Nothing in this book makes any sense. However this author has a number of other books that are far better and I would try one of those instead. This was a let down in comparison.

Robotic Narrator??

Ok, I just purchased this book, literally like an hour ago. Wasn't familiar with either narrator, but went with it anyways. Let me see how to put this … immediately (immediately for real) the female narration of Chapter 1 sounded like a bad impression of some kind of knock off Siri or Alexa. I tried to slow it down, no luck. Sped it up, made it worse. I skipped to Chapter 2 - male narration was actually nice, Douglas Berger has a soothing quality in his tone which was pleasant. Skipped right away to Chapter 3 to see if Chapter 1 was a fluke - nope, same robotic female voice. Fast forwarded to chapter 27, 29, 31 - no change. Now, I am not a complete audio book snob even though I have my favorites - I will make myself suffer through nasally, scratchy, breathy, annoying, you name it - but robotic? Nope. I didn't spend money for that. I tried to figure out how to contact someone at Audible to see if it was maybe something like an issue with the recording or downloading, but I haven't figured out how yet. This book is being returned until if/when something changes - or I will just read it. Also, I know I gave it a 1 rating all the way around, which isn't fair to the story or overall rating since I didn't finish this book (didn't even get 5 minutes in), but the 1 for Performance stands (sorry Douglas). They just didn't have a button for "well it was weird to listen to Robot Speak and I couldn't do it".

...Wow...Just wow. Unexpectedly Soul Touching

I am sorry to say I started this book with very low expectations. I’m new to the author and I think the title played a big part in that. I hope the author can change it to something that reflects the true depth of this story. Because now I too want someone special beside me who vows they will find me again as I take my last breathes.
Well, I have never been more happy to be so very wrong. I’m in awe. This story is absolutely amazing.
The narrator performances are fantastic. I think their voices are a perfect match to the characters. It truly brought them to life.
The writing... I was blown away. I’d like to say I’m speechless and leave it at that because I’m not sure I can do the praise enough justice but I’d like to try.
This author is so very talented. At times parts of it were like poetry. Powerful and moving. Soul touching.
I didn’t cry until the end but it was a good cry because the HEA is beautiful! I wish everyone was blessed with a love like these characters share. The world would be so different.
Anyhow, I would absolutely recommend this book. It’s the best one I’ve read/listened to in awhile.
To the writer: thank you for sharing your talent with the world. I look forward to more of your work.
