Delilah might think she’s conning bear-shifter Axel, but he and baby Noah are stealing her heart…

Axel adores baby Noah. Becoming a dad is the best thing that has ever happened to the burly bear-shifter mechanic, even if raising a child alone is hard. When help arrives in the form of a live-in nanny, Axel is ecstatic. His baby, Noah, loves her, and Axel's inner bear is driven wild by the curvy little human woman. His bear doesn't care if she has secrets, he just doesn't want to let her go.

Delilah doesn't do commitment. As a con artist, she moves from city to city, keeping to only one rule: never con a mark who can’t afford to lose. When her conscience has her bailing out of a job gone very wrong, she winds up in the tiny Pennsylvania town of Tarker’s Hollow. Hoping to hide from her furious partners, she finds herself mistaken for a nanny and plays along, treating it as the perfect cover to lay low for a few days. But as she begins to have very real feelings for the baby and his achingly sexy single dad, it gets harder and harder for Delilah to remember she’s only pretending.

When Delilah’s treacherous partners track her down, her fragile new world is suddenly in danger. Can the bear shifter and the con artist trust each other with the truth in time to save everything that is important to them? Or will she run away with the big bear’s heart?

If you like strong women, sexy shifter men, and unbelievably adorable babies, you will love the Single Daddy Shifters series, set in the steamy shifter world of Tarker’s Hollow!

Axel is book one in the Single Daddy Shifters series by Tasha Black. 

I wanted to like this novel. Sexy single shifter dad’s. Ya! Who doesn’t like a single sexy shifter daddy, but it turns out I couldn’t finish. 

It’s got no depth. No plot. No personalities to the characters. Just bland. My other issue is that the leads don’t know each other and on the first night they are in Axel’s house they kiss and hop into bed. That’s just way to quick.  

I won’t be reading anymore in the Single Daddy Shifters series. Axel was not the book for me. If the blurb intrigues you, I urge you to give it a shot. Just because it did not work for me does not mean it won’t for you. 

DNF’d at 43%
