When Jeff agreed to be the sperm donor to his best friend Beth, he never expected a tragedy to leave his newborn and three year old motherless. That's exactly what's happened, though, and it's totally thrown his life into chaos: his lover has left him, his house isn't anywhere near childproof and his boss feels the restaurant has been patient enough with the time off. Donny has always known he wanted to be in childcare, and he just finished his degree in early childhood education. He didn't count on people being less than thrilled to hire him when they find out that not only is he a male nanny, but a gay one at that. Job hunting has been frustrating to say the least, so when he knocks on Jeff's door and is greeted by the sounds of things breaking and a pair of screaming children, he thinks, just maybe, he can begin this particular interview with a trial by fire.Becoming the nanny to Jeff's children just might be a dream come true for Danny, and exactly what Jeff needs, but are either one of them ready to really be a family?
When Donny Gleason arrives at yet another interview for the nanny position he knows that fate had him wait specifically for this job. As soon as Donny meets the little family he feels that this is exactly where he’s meant to be. He’s the nanny they need.
A top chef for the classy Dejeuner restaurant, Jeff Roberts is drowning in the sudden deluge of two small children. His BFF since kindergarten asked Jeff to father her children and he agreed though never thinking that he’d end up being responsible for a three year old and a 9 week old. There wasn’t supposed to be a house fire. Beth wasn’t supposed to die, holding Jeff’s hand as she took her last breath. And Jeff’s long time partner Mitch wasn’t supposed to abandon him when the orphaned children arrive.
From the moment Donny crosses the threshold of Jeff’s home it’s apparent that the nanny is meant to help the small family heal and thrive. Through every obstacle, joy or heartbreak to come Donny will be there. As they settle into a true family the two men will also realize that they can’t do without each other. This family is meant to be.
Emotionally intense and ultimately heartwarming, Daddy, Daddy & Me is a powerful story of life’s hurdles and how adults choose to face them. Complex, fully developed characters from the children to the parent and nanny deal with life’s issues. Realistic in how challenges are met, Daddy, Daddy & Me keeps a steady pace whether things are going right or incredibly wrong and never bogs down with inconsequential matters. Though there aren’t any big surprises in the plotline, the story still satisfies. Daddy, Daddy & Me will have you laughing and crying and glad you read this story. I Joyfully recommend Daddy, Daddy & Me.
