New Release August 29th: Grumpy Dad by #Author Abby Knox

Sunny, eccentric Kindergarten teacher Jewel knows how to charm the typical private school parent. Vince, however, is the only one whose outward stubbornness provokes in her a nearly uncontrollable desire to stroke his beard, squeeze his dad bod and stare at him while he watches Burt Reynolds movies. Hey, whatever works to get more help for the PTA bake sale … 

Vince really wishes people would leave him alone. For the most part, they oblige. So why does a gorgeous, relentlessly upbeat Kindergarten teacher keep trying to include him in all this bougie PTA rigmarole? But … if all this nonsense will help five-year-old Max fit in at this fancy school, fine. Just this once, he’ll help; and then everybody’d better leave him alone.

This book is intended for adults ages 18 and up, due to graphic sexual content and language. 

Trigger warning: this book contains descriptions of domestic violence committed by secondary characters.

“I’ve had his address and phone number all this time. I kept track of him.”

Those were the words my mother had said as she handed me the piece of paper that would change my life forever. The one that held my father’s name and address–the same father I’d always been told had died when I was a baby.

Even though my entire life until now, I’ve survived by being tightly-focused and in control, as soon as I learned my father was alive, I made a snap decision. I knew there was only one thing I could do: climb in the car and drive to meet him. The world’s most high-stakes road trip!

I’ve survived up until now by insisting on stability, but surviving’s not enough for me anymore. With everything on the line, can I learn to truly live by Embracing Reckless?
