He had his one love…
The love of Sean Young’s life died when he was twenty. Ever since, the only woman in his life has been his daughter. He likes it that way, especially as she breathes down the neck of her teenage years, giving him new gray hairs every day.
She always keeps her distance…
Erin Carter hasn’t had a family since she was sixteen, but she’s spent her career as a psychologist helping other families have everything she missed out on. Trust, togetherness, and above all, love.
They are not friends…
It’s hate at first sight for Erin and Sean. He thinks she’s haughty and sticks her nose in where it doesn’t belong, namely his relationship with his daughter. She thinks he’s a stuck-up jerk, to say the least. There’s definitely no love lost between them.
When Erin becomes friends with Sean’s sister, they have no choice but to spend time together. There are more than a few fireworks between them as enemies, and not all of them are outside the bedroom.

Excerpt from Sealed With A Slap
“You were right. About all of it. Everything you told me about Emily was dead on, but I didn’t want to accept it. I hated the idea of someone else knowing my kid better than I did. All my life I’ve had my older brother telling me how to do everything, knowing more than me, being more than me. My sister, too, to some degree. Hell, I even have three cousins older than me telling me what to do. And four moms, three now two dads, and my grandmother. When I became a father I didn’t know what the hell I was doing, but I was figuring it out. None of my siblings or cousins could tell me how to be a parent because none of them knew how. And then you walked in and without your own kids you knew more than I did. More than I could ever know. You told me what to do so I did the opposite to make sure I couldn’t say you were right, but you were. You have an instinct with kids and I’m sorry I questioned it. Sorry if I made you question it.”
“It’s too bad you’re such an ass because you’re seriously hot when you’re being honest,” Erin mumbled.
Sean’s eyebrow quirked at her and she clamped her hand over her mouth.
“Did I say that out loud?” she asked, horrified.
“Say what out loud?” he teased.
“That you’re hot when you’re being honest. Fuck! I said it again.”
Sean loved the way her cheeks turned pink with her embarrassment. She hiccuped and he thought she was even cuter. He took in her messy hair, her bright blue eyes, her curvy body covered in her rumpled dress shirt and skirt she wore earlier, now twisted a bit sideways. She was the most beautiful woman he’d ever seen.
