Single Dad Santa by Heather Lauren ~ Review





Single Dad Santa by Heather Lauren is the starter book for the 2022 Curves for Christmas multi-author series. It features a sexy single dad and a snarky bookstore manager who hates crowds but somehow ends up a party where she’s tossed into a pool with a sexy man in a Santa suit. 


Single Dad Santa by Heather Lauren QUOTE 1




This was a great romance read. Fun, flirty, with both heart and steam. I really liked the characters, both the leads and the few side characters who made an appearance. They were all fun, and each of them had very distinct personalities, which made reading about them even more entertaining.

I have not read anything by this author previously, but I enjoyed her writing style quite a bit. It has a natural flow to it and the fast pacing made this such an enjoyable read for me. I loved Olive and Leo together, and I equally loved them on their own individually.

Olive runs a bookstore she doesn’t own but loves like it was hers and despite her goth-like appearance, she’s a sweet, caring person. Leo is the sexy single dad she meets after getting thrown into a pool with him. She’s a little leery of getting involved with him, but at the same time, she can’t seem to steer clear of him, even though a relationship is the last thing she’s looking for right now. Except… the more time Olive spends with Leo, the more time she wants to spend with him. And that could be a problem. For both of them.

Leo is the single father of a semi-rebellious teenage girl who no longer thinks the sun rises and sets with him. No matter what he tries, he just can’t seem to bond with her, and adding in a new relationship with a woman she hasn’t yet met probably isn’t the best way to gain her attention again. Or so he thinks.

The closer Olive and Leo become, the more they want to explore this thing between them. And soon enough, Leo is ready to introduce his daughter to the woman who has become much more than just a hookup.

If you’re looking for a short, fun, and flirty romance with plenty of heart and steam, check out Single Dad Santa by Heather Lauren. It’s the perfect little bite of Christmas holiday fun mixed in with sexy single dad shenanigans.

I liked it a lot.

One bookstore. One suspicious matchmaker. Tiss the season to be naughty.

Olive Adams is happy with her life. She has good friends, a job she loves, and she certainly doesn’t need a man to make things more complicated.

Until she gets thrown into a pool with Leo Miller.

But Leo isn’t looking for anything either. He’s a single dad way too focused on his career and his daughter. He’s comfortable in his life, too afraid to throw anything off balance. Something serious is off the table.

Or is it?

As Olive and Leo grow closer, their perceptions on relationships—and sex in public places—begin to change. But as life becomes more complicated, will it be enough?
