Listen by RJ Scott

Listen is just such an amazing read... from Nick to Elliot, from Nick's kids to Teegan, the new daughter of his heart (and who will steal yours)... 

From the blurb:

He only wanted to make the best home for his new daughter; he never meant to fall in love with the man who might steal her away.

Nick and his husband had always wanted a big family, but when cancer took Danny six years ago, Nick was left a single dad of three. He never considered his broken heart would heal enough to add to his family, but as soon as he meets Teegan he knows he wants to adopt the little girl. Born profoundly deaf, Teegan has been rejected twice already in the adoption process and hasn't found her forever home. Nick wants to be her hero—her dad—and create a world that is safe and happy for her. He knows he wants to make her life perfect—he doesn't know how to go about it or understand the best thing to do for his family, and he needs help. Enter Elliot, and Nick finds himself falling for the frustrating, sexy, inspiring, and caring teacher who can make things right.

Elliot is wary of helping the man who appears more interested in public opinion than the needs of his own family. But, learning that Nick, wealthy and entitled, is now adopting a deaf child, Elliot knows this is a step too far and strides into battle. As the child of deaf adults, Elliot knows he is the best person to advocate for little Teegan and, if needed, he is determined to intervene and halt the adoption. Nothing and no one will get in Elliot's way when it falls on him to protect Teegan. Not even love.

This single dad story features a widower struggling to make things right, a teacher battling for a child's wellbeing, an adorable toddler, three loving siblings, and a home with a view of the ocean.

Heather's Review:

RJ Scott takes you on an emotional journey of hurt/comfort, strangers to enemies to friends to lovers...  and all the while holds your heart her hand... Listen is a multi-layered journey that is sweet, a little spicy and also very family-oriented.  It deals with some heavy topics, but does it in a sensitive and endearing way.

I absolutely love everything about Nick and Elliot, their journey and their story... if you're ready for an emotional journey that will pull at your heartstrings and make you fall in love with the entire cast of characters, you're going to love Listen!

Rating: 5 Stars

Listen is available in e-book and paperback.  It's the 5th book in RJ Scott's Singe Dads series, but can easily be read standalone.
