Book Review: 'Big Bad Daddy' by Tia Siren
Tia Siren writes Chick Lit books with a heady overhead of psychological issues. In this collection of around 20 publications she tackles adult issues- not just erotic but relationship hot beds. And she does that well.
Fast pace and propulsive in action the story is well outlined in the plot synopsis: ‘Does the single-dad billionaire want to pay me to take care of his daughter’s needs or to satisfy his own dark desires? AMY LYNN BECK: Saying that life has dealt me a lousy hand would be an understatement. I barely escaped an abusive ex-husband, only to end up starting over in a crappy apartment with a crappy job at a convenience store.
But now I’ve been dealt a good hand for once. I’m to become the live-in nanny to the daughter of Jackson Ritter, the rich, hunky best-selling author who can make me blush with his eyes and melt at his touch. But the way he looks at me tells me that he wants something more, something hot and steamy. I can’t sleep with him. I won’t. Otherwise my ex-husband’s right. But I don’t know what to think when Jackson calls me his muse… and what do I do when my ex-husband threatens any chance I have at happiness? JACKSON RITTER: My publisher is pressuring me for another bestseller, but I haven’t written a word since my wife died in a car accident with her lover, my best friend. Being a single dad isn’t easy either. I’ve got 2 weeks to hand in a full draft, otherwise I stand to lose everything. But I just can’t get past this writer’s block. So hiring a nanny to look after my daughter is my last hope. The minute I see her standing at my door, I know that I have to have her. She’s young, pretty, innocent, utterly delicious…But I’m not ready. What if I end up giving my heart to the girl who’s supposed to be here for my daughter but instead becomes my muse?’
Cute story with many overtones of serious issues, but they don’t get in the way of the erotica. A good evening’s read! Grady Harp, October 17
