My Rating: Five Hilariously Sexy Stars*****
I have no idea why Amazon had this book originally categorized as Fantasy/Action Adventure/Sports Romance, because Single Dad's Waitress is none of those things. However, It is a sexy, fun, flirty, fast-paced, well-crafted, easy to follow, full-length standalone romantic comedy filled to the brim with outrageous humor, instant attraction, steamy passion, dreamy romance, an all too real small town full of quirky residents with a charming little diner named Short Stack boasting the best pancakes around, a wonderful cast of relatable and very engaging characters including a beautiful, brokenhearted, down on her luck heroine in need of a fresh start, a single dad hero with an adorable two-year-old named Minnie, and, of course, a healthy measure of agonizing angst. What's life without a little heartbreaking drama, right? The narrative is beautifully written in the first person with clearly defined his and her perspectives. The dialogue is smart, snappy, well-executed, at times hilarious, and flows effortlessly. But the crowning achievement of this sexy romp and my favorite component is the delightful cast of characters. I was immediately smitten with the two protagonists, Ryder Harrison and Valentine Carr. The lovely Valentine has come home to Lakewood to lick her wounds and mend her broken heart. She lost her home, job, and boyfriend in one fell swoop. So now, she's back at the same job she had during high school, a waitress at the Short Stack Diner, but's it's only until she gets on her feet and saves enough money to get out of town for good. Unfortunately, she had no idea her plans would be derailed by an adorable, precocious two-year-old named Minnie and a cocky, panty-melting-hot single dad named Ryder Harrison. Ryder is a handsome bad boy former soldier who has suddenly become the sole provider and caregiver for his cuter-than-cute two-year-old daughter Minnie. Ryder has moved to Lakewood to accept a job working with his brother for the summer. He has no intention of sticking around the small community of Lakewood and plans to beat feet out of town with his daughter as soon as possible. He had no interest in making friends or putting down roots, no interest in romance, and especially not a relationship. Nope, not him! However, a scorching-hot but very temporary summer fling with the beautiful, blushing red-haired waitress from the Short Stack Diner just might fit nicely into his schedule. What could go wrong? A lot actually, especially since their hearts didn't get the memo! Yup, you guessed it; they fooled around and fell in love - just like the song! But will love be enough? We'll see!
Did I like this book? Yes, I loved it! Was it perfect? No. There were a few boo-boos but nothing that truly distracted me from the story. Would I recommend it? You bet and I am but only for adult readers since it does contain explicit language and some steamy dreamy love scenes. There's no danger, violence, suspense or mayhem, but there is a boatload of laughter, adorable cuteness, heartwarming sweetness, and a whole lot of smexy fun! Will I read this author again? Absolutely! I've been following Amelia Wilde's writing career for the past year and have read several of her books but I must admit, Single Dad's Waitress is, hands down, my favorite. And finally, was I entertained? Completely! Fabulous entertainment and an awesome read!
