Speed dating: the act in which you have two minutes to figure out how much of a jerk someone is. And pretend like you don’t have the hots for your son’s soccer coach.
After four years living the single life, it’s decided that I, London Stuart, am back on the market.
I’m not even mad when my cousins and best friends put my name down for the speed dating sessions. In fact, I’m actually a little excited about it.
Until one of my dates turns out to be my six-year-old son’s irresistibly sexy soccer coach. His irresistibly sexy British soccer coach.
Oliver Hayes is too good to be true—he’s tall, dark, handsome, hilarious, and he genuinely loves kids. Especially mine. But he’s not sure if he’s even staying in the country, and I’m not sure I can handle giving him my heart if he’s only going to leave.
So why is he over for dinner almost every night? Why is he giving Leo private goalie sessions in the backyard? Why is he sending flowers to my desk at the newspaper?
And why, oh why, can’t I stop kissing him?

While all of the books in this series are definitely quick reads because I can barely put them down, this one seemed a little bit quicker. There was definitely drama between the two, but not a ton, and I kind of missed the snarkiness of some of the other stories. We also didn’t get as much time with the grandparents in this one, so that could be part of what I was missing as well. But I really did like our two characters in this one, especially London’s relationship with her son. Another thing I really liked was how she and her ex were able to handle raising their son. I liked how even though she might not want to be around him because of what he’d done when he cheated, she was still able to act like a rational, mature adult. I think that is realistic, at least I know it is from my own divorced parents who are both remarried and these days even go have dinner with all four of them at times!
As I said this was a really fast read, and so I don’t have a lot of things to point out from the story. It was a good addition to the series, I like seeing all of the characters get their HEAs. And I look forward to the next book as well! Oh yeah, I do remember speed dating from back when it was a thing, that was interesting, and never successful for me.
