Daddy, Daddy and Me by Sean Michael

When Jeff agreed to be the sperm donor to his best friend Beth, he never expected a tragedy to leave his newborn and three year old motherless. That's exactly what's happened, though, and it's totally thrown his life into chaos: his lover has left him, his house isn't anywhere near childproof and his boss feels the restaurant has been patient enough with the time off.

Donny has always known he wanted to be in childcare, and he just finished his degree in early childhood education. He didn't count on people being less than thrilled to hire him when they find out that not only is he a male nanny, but a gay one at that. Job hunting has been frustrating to say the least, so when he knocks on Jeff's door and is greeted by the sounds of things breaking and a pair of screaming children, he thinks, just maybe, he can begin this particular interview with a trial by fire.

Becoming the nanny to Jeff's children just might be a dream come true for Danny, and exactly what Jeff needs, but are either one of them ready to really be a family?

The story line isn't original but nevertheless sweet; a man donates his sperm to his best friend then she dies leaving him the kids and along  comes the nanny to saved the day. I liked the story and maybe the Christmas spirit makes it sweeter, because this time of year we are in the mood for a sweet story with a HEA and this was it. Both characters  were cute and I could relate to them, as for the kids they were sooooo cute and funny and I liked them a lot. 

If this story proves  anything, it is that during hard times you discover if someone really loves you or not. I like Sean Michael and have read most of his books and this was a bit different from his normal style. There were some editing errors like on page 142 Don is referred to as Dave. Must have slipped by the editors, lol. All in all, a cute story and it wasn’t hard to read. I  give it 4 stars.
