✱✱Book Review✱✱ Simple Man: A Surprise Baby Single Dad Romance by Lydia Michaels


From bestselling author, Lydia Michaels–When Shane, a young, tattooed musician becomes the guardian of a surprise baby, his life and heart are forever changed. Opposites attract when this single dad is assigned to a prissy social worker who dislikes him at first sight.

Months after Shane Martin’s sister vanishes, his world crashes down and he finds himself the sole guardian of a surprise baby. Blissfully ignorant, Shane trades in late nights and fast women for midnight feedings and lullabies. But when Kate McAlester, the prissy, stuck up social worker interferes, his devotion to family is tested.

Kate isn’t impressed by Shane’s messy bachelor pad, rocker image, sarcastic attitude, or showy tattoos. He claims he’s a simple man, but he quickly becomes the greatest complication in her life.

Passion explodes when opposite personalities collide in a touching story of love and redemption.

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

No matter the storyline or characters, Lydia Michaels gives me a swoony romance while wreaking havoc with my heart. But Simple Man hit me on a personal level. It's oddly fitting that I would start reading this book on my siblings' birthday - siblings that we've lost, and oddly enough, I'm raising my nephew, the son of one of those siblings. Needless to say, I shed a fair amount of tears along with Shane and Kate, tears for myself as well as for them. The blurb promises "a touching story of love and redemption," and it is, but for me, it was also a story of healing - some long overdue healing. Don't let my emotional response to this book fool you because it's certainly not all tears and sorrow. True to form, Lydia Michaels tempers the tears with some well-timed wit and humor and a couple with so much chemistry, the steam was a given. To sum it up, Simple Man is everything the blurb promises and then some, and it's a story that will always hold a special place in my heart.
