For just one night, Georgia Taylor wants to forget about her demanding job and the
everyday struggles of being a single mom. Her track record with men is pitiful, but that’s fine because her responsibilities don’t leave room for love anyway. The new online dating site is perfect for what she’s after.

But Georgia’s plans are crushed when Brent Turner, aka Sexy Dad and father of her daughter’s classmate, turns out to be her internet date, therefore, eliminating any possibility for a night without consequences.

All of Brent Turner’s honorable intentions fly out the window when he sees highly strung “Super Mom” waiting for her date at the bar. Determined to win Georgia’s trust and show her a good time, their no-strings evening promises to become so much more…until, that is, she discovers what he's really up to.
There was just a little too much deceit in this one at the very beginning for my taste.  I don't care how hot you are, if it ends up looking like you slept with me to get a contract at the place I work, I'm not going to forgive you easily.  Perhaps if it had been a novel with more time for them to make up I would have liked it more.

I did like the characters.  They were both very real - single parents just looking for someone that understands and they can have a good time with.  It was nice to see such a realistic look at how they might find someone to connect with.  They would have really shone in a longer format.  I don't want to sound like I'm bashing novellas.  I enjoy many of them, but some stories just need more pages and for me, this was one of them.
