I have one month to find a bride or I lose my daughter.
They say a tattoo artist with a dirty mouth can’t be a kickass father.
Bullsh*t. But my lawyer says I need a wholesome bride to convince the judge.
I know just the perfect girl—hell—I think she might even be a virgin.
Only problem? She’s my sister’s best friend, and she hates my guts.

When my best friend's brother asks me to marry him, I nearly slap him in the face. I’m pretty sure he’s teasing me—just like he always has—but marriage isn’t something to joke about. Not when I’m pushing thirty with no hope in sight. And not when I’ve always had a huge, stupid crush on him.

Then he tells me he’s serious. He needs me to do it so he can keep his daughter. 

I have to refuse. He’s always treated me like crap, which makes my feelings toward him even more sad and pathetic. 

How can I not have a crush on him though? He’s always wearing a thin, tight undershirt that shows off his cut abs and broad shoulders, and despite what some people say about his chops as a father, he’s as sweet to his daughter as he is mean to me. 

Maybe I can say “yes.” I’d be doing it for his daughter, not for him. And I certainly wouldn’t be doing it with the sad hope that he’d look at me as anything other than his sister’s dorky friend—that he’d touch me and make me—no, definitely not that.

This is the first book in the Single Dad's Bride Series by Melinda Minx.


  • Good, but not fulfilling - go for the complete set

    I really enjoyed this book. The characters meshed well and it has a good storyline. I was disappointed that as soon as things start to heat up, the book was over. Opt for the complete series to not have a cliffhanger.

    I love it!! They both like each other and don’t know it. Maybe even love it!! I think he always secretly liked her but never let himself.

    Great read from Melinda Minx
  • Not a book

    By Great super duper book!!!
    60 pages doesn’t qualify as anything especially not a book! It is impossible to build up each character, write this plot that flows in 60 pages! Books that are worth reading are good because of the depth of the characters and the well told plot.

    The book was really good couldn’t put it down. Dying to read the rest of the series. Got caught up in the characters wanting to know if everything works out for them and if they are happy.

    Was really excited to read this book! It was awesome seeing scary hot guy becoming attracted to his little sister’s innocent best friend. Can’t wait to finish the rest of the series!
  • Soooo good!!

    By Fencorefrigeration
    This book has such a good ending that it makes you want to read the rest. You really fall in love with Rita and Deacon in less than 100 pages! I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a good romance.
