I will fully admit that I knew I was going to love John’s character way back when Courtney traveled home in the Drewtney duet. I did NOT plan to fall hard for this sexy, silent man when he yells at our heroine in just a towel! #HOT and immediate love!
At the end of Needing Him, readers were left with the surprise of a baby on John’s doorstep between him and a woman he had dated the year before. After a heartbreaking beginning, little Maize is thrown into the arms of a new dad who’s got no clue what to do. Thankfully the Bishops are a family built on love and John has all the support he could ask for. But even siblings, spouses, and parents can’t be there 24/7 and John’s struggling to stay afloat when a solution flies into town. Mila’s the full package and the perfect solution to John’s baby problems…he just has to keep his hands off her.
Mila is looking forward to her time in Texas away from the heartbreak of her best friend not loving her the way she dreamed he would. But where one door closes, another opens, when her grandmother’s friend offers her a part time job during her visit. Her son’s n desperate need of a nanny and Mila comes with all the qualifications. The hitch? Daddy John is SUPER attractive, sweet, and funny. Playing nanny quickly turns into playing house. But reality sets in and at the end of the their arrangement Mila has to decide: a chance at her dream career or a forever home with John and Maize.
It has been a hot minute since a book has made me cry. But KF fully had me sobbing when Mila had to decide what she wanted to go for: love or career. I was honestly fighting in my head about it alongside her. There is an INSTANT chemistry between John and Mila and the way their relationship blooms and flourishes as they both care for baby Maize was so endearing. I wanted to hug my kindle half the time! Chasing Him is filled with warmth, light, and happiness until that fateful climax. Not only is this a slooooow burn novel but once it heats up…my god! I knew I would love this couple! Heartbreak and lessons abut what family really means is what this love story is all about!! KF seem to outdo themselves with each passing Bishop and I know that Jackson’s book is going to be EXPLOSIVE. As usual, prepare yourself for one hell of an ending….it will leave you SHAKEN.
John Bishop isn’t your typical single dad.
Reserved, impatient, and utterly clueless.
Running the family’s bed and breakfast has many perks. Working long hours, picking up after the guests, and hearing couples going at it all night long aren’t any of them. Hooking up with girls who come to the ranch for horseback riding lessons? Best perk of them all.
That is until a baby shows up at his doorstep with a note claiming it’s his. Growing up on a ranch was anything but easy, but raising a newborn is proving to be the hardest task he’ll ever tackle. Leaving the bachelor life behind, his only priority is to hire a nanny who can teach him a thing or two about parenting—except he doesn’t anticipate her being gorgeous and quirky with an unhealthy football obsession.
Mila Carmichael has many talents—making balloon animals, creating origami art, and remaining in the friend zone. Often seen as one of the guys, she’s struck out more times than a rookie baseball player.
Seeking a new adventure, she flies to Texas to visit family and is offered a position she can’t refuse. Helping out a new dad should come easy to her, considering her past experience, but what she doesn’t anticipate is him being an attractive Southern temptation.
But that’s only the beginning.
While growing close to his family and falling madly in love with the baby girl who’s stealing their hearts, things are bound to get complicated. Everyone knows not to mix business with pleasure. That means no late movie nights, no stolen glances, and definitely no kissing behind closed doors. Too bad the universe has other plans—one that’ll threaten taking away the main thing that binds them together.
As soon as I walk into the living room, I see Mila in tight blue jeans and a low cut shirt that shows way too much cleavage.
“Nope.” Resting my hands on my hips, I look at her, trying not to stare at her chest. It doesn’t help that her nipples are hard as a damn rock either. Fuck. Eyes up.
“Nope, what?” she asks, furrowing her brows in confusion as she grabs Maize out of the swing.
“You can’t wear that shirt. Actually, we should probably set some ground rules since you’ll be staying here around the clock.”
Mila rolls her eyes and kneels down in front of the carseat. She’s dressed Maize in an outfit that says something about Grandma being her favorite, and I know Mama is going to love it. “Is that what you do ‘round here? Make rules for everyone?” She arches an eyebrow with a cocky smirk on her face.
Tilting my head, I narrow my eyes and study her. “What’s that supposed to mean?”
“Ask Jackson.” She carefully places Maize in the car seat and straps her in. I suck in a deep breath remembering the nanny rules I’d given Jackson, the ones she wasn’t supposed to hear.
“Jackson needs rules. He has zero boundaries. And it’s not like he listens to anyone anyway. Trust me. It’s an open invitation to flirting and ridiculous comments from him. So you can’t be wearing shirts like that around him.”
“…or I can’t be wearing shirts like this around you?” she quips, not paying any attention to how frustrated I’m becoming. “I think I can handle Jackson, so stop worrying yourself.”
She straightens up and looks me dead in the eyes. “You’re my boss and you can make any crazy rules you want when it comes to your baby, but you don’t get to tell me what I can and can’t wear, unless you’re instating a dress code for me and if that’s the case, I want a raise and a clothes allowance then.”
I scoff, crossing my arms over my chest that’s rising and falling rapidly. “How much for you to wear baggy overalls and turtlenecks every day?”
“You’ve got jokes, do you?” she mutters, not amused. “Why not just put a chastity belt on me too while you’re at it?”
I grunt, thinking that’s not a bad idea actually.
