Growing up and falling in love...

Sometimes family is a blessing and a curse. When Tino Robbins is roped into helping his sister deliver premade dinners when he should be studying for finals, he’s pretty sure it's the latter! But one delivery might change everything.

Channing Lowell’s charmed life changes when his sister dies and leaves him her seven-year-old son. He’s committed to doing what's best for Sammy… but he’s going to need a lot of help. When Tino lands on his porch, Channing is determined to recruit him to Team Sammy.

Tino plans to make his education count—even if that means avoiding a relationship—but as he falls harder and harder for his boss, he starts to wonder: Does he have to leave his newly forged family behind in order live his promising tomorrow?

Seriously people, is there ANY better way to start the new year than with an Amy Lane book? If there is someone needs to let me know what it is, because I really can't think of a thing. And this book? The Virgin Manny? It is everything you need to start your year off in the best possible way. It's sweet and funny and sexy and SO romantic, with a hint of ridiculous and a teeny bit of drama just to keep you on your toes. I LOVED everything about this book. Of course I loved our Manny, Martin (or Tino as he's called), but oh my goodness did I ever just swoon and sigh all over the place for Channing. Talk about a guy that will make your heart pitter patter!

The Virgin Manny is Amy's first Dreamspun Desires book and I'm here to say, and to beg, that it won't be her last. These tropes are quintessential Amy Lane and there's really no one that does them better. An uncle thrust into instant parenthood when his beloved sister dies suddenly, leaving him responsible for one moody and precocious seven-year-old coupled with a guy, who just so happens to be a virgin, who just so happens to need a job, and, well, if you're ever read any of Amy's books I'm sure you can see how this all plays out. And you'd be right. There isn't anything going on in this book that we haven't seen before, but that's what makes it all the more fun! Low angst, high swoonage, with some witty banter and fabulous secondary characters made The Virgin Manny my favorite Dreamspun Desire book so far.

Cute, sweet, and oodles of fun, this book is definitely not to be missed. I sure hope this isn't the last Dreamspun Desires book Amy undertakes! Make sure you do yourselves the ultimate favor and get your new year off to a kick-ass feel good start by reading The Virgin Manny. You won't be sorry!
