“Daddy” is not a title Rue Murray wanted, but he never thought he’d have sex with a woman either. Now he’s the unwitting father of a newborn named Alice. Between bartending and cosmetology school, Rue doesn’t have time for babies, but he can’t give her up. What Rue needs is a babysitter, and he’s running out of options. He’s on the verge of quitting school to watch Alice himself when he remembers his reclusive new neighbor, Erik.
Erik Van Nuys is a sci-fi novelist with anxiety issues to spare. He doesn’t like people in general, and he likes babies even less. Still, with his royalties dwindling, he could use the extra cash. Reluctantly, he takes on the role of manny—and even more reluctantly, he finds himself falling for Alice and her flamboyant father.
Rue and Erik are as different as two people can be, and Alice is the unlikeliest of babies, but Rue has never been happier than when Alice and Erik are by his side. At least, not until he receives an offer that puts all his dreams within reach and he’s forced to choose: the future he’s always wanted, or the family he thought he never did.
One Small Thing is a sweet story about an eccentric writer, Erik, and a flamboyant ex-club boy, Rue, plus there’s a really cute baby girl involved! Erik has always had anxiety issues and in many ways is the definition of a Star Wars geek. But this guy is lovable and Rue forces Erik outta his shell and Erik finds his doesn’t mind!
The blurb for this book explains the plot pretty well, so I will just say that this story left me with a warm fuzzy feeling and I am glad I read it! Also, I hope that there will be a book about Rue’s best friend sometime soon!
