Daddy’s Girl (Freshwater Book 3) by Belinda Williams was a wonderful quick romance. I love the attention to detail and the development. Em was my absolute favorite, I adore a feisty female lead. I did enjoy Joel as well and his back story was really well done. I would definitely recommend it for anyone who needs a good romance fix.
‘Daddy’s Girl’ is an enjoyable and entertaining contemporary romance set in beachside Sydney. This is a lighthearted, fun romantic comedy with wonderful characters and I felt totally immersed in the storyline. Em Georgiou is not ready to settle down as she has her PhD to finish and a career to start. Joel Scott is completely focused on his architecture business to worry about relationships. Joel does not have high hopes when a client suggests he ‘gets to know’ his daughter, as he’s expecting a spoiled daddy’s girl. However as soon as Joel meets Em he is determined to convince her that he’s not just seeing her to impress her father. This book took me on an emotional rollercoaster whilst reading it as it has some really funny, laugh out loud moments and then some more emotional moments. Although book three in a series it can be read as a standalone story, however I have also enjoyed the previous two books in the ‘Freshwater’ series. An easy and engaging read which I recommend if your looking for some escapism with a good book.
Daddy’s Girl is a fun-loving romance story that will have you laughing and relating to the characters within the book. The plotline is simple but effective. Two people not looking for love realize that they need each other. The story goes at a good clip. I know I had to hold on because I was plowing through the story. This story is Joel and Em’s story. Em is a “daddy’s girl” who has a Ph.D. who is not ready to be with one man. Her daddy had other plans for her. Joel is focusing on his business to date anyone. Then there was his client who was trying to set up his daughter with Joel. Will this be a disaster in the making? Does Joel develop feelings for Em? Is Em ready for a single man relationship? I highly recommend this book to find out the answers to these questions and more.
Daddy’s girl is the awesome 3rd book in the Freshwater series by Belinda Williams. It’s a fantastic contemporary romance series set in the Freshwater area of Australia. It can be read as a standalone but I’d definitely recommend reading all three books in the series and if you read all three then it makes more sense to read them in the correct order to avoid spoilers. I’ve now read all 3 and I can safely say that I adore this series of books.
For as long as she can remember, Em Georgiou’s father has been trying to set her up will suitable, eligible young men all of whom she’s had absolutely no interest in. Even if she was interested, she’s going nowhere near someone recommended by her father. That is, until she meets Joel Scott who is trying to win a contract with her father. Neither of them are interested in relationships, their careers are the number one factor in their lives. That is, until they both can’t stop thinking of the other.
I absolutely loved this story and both Em and Joel are amazing characters that I just fell in love with. Well, I already adored Em from the previous 2 books. Joel expected a daddy’s girl, a spoiled brat but what he got in Em was totally the opposite: a beautiful, highly intelligent woman with similar interests and passions as his own.
This is a fun filled, romantic story that I’d call a page turner. I was to enthralled in Em and Joel’s story and did not want to put it down.
Would definitely recommend Daddy’s Girl.
Daddy’s Girl is the third book in Belinda Williams’ Freshwater series. Like the previous books in the series, it has a gorgeous coastal Australian setting with a fiery romance between interesting characters.
The books in the series are connected by the protagonists (first Kat, then Jess, now Em) living in the same building. They’ve grown to be friends, which means I was eager to see Em get her own story, and grateful in this story for the chance to catch up with Kat, Jess and their partners.
Living in a penthouse owned by her father, Em seems at first sight a spoiled daddy’s girl. But she is uncomfortable to be relying on her father, and only does so because it enables her to focus on the PhD she hopes will let her make some positive changes in the world. Her father hopes she will get married and settle down, preferably soon, and is constantly setting her up with young bachelors.
Joel can be a bit annoying at times – he broods a lot over his dark past and is quite self-centred – but he’s clearly trying to do the right thing. I’m hoping there are more books in the series so we can see his character develop further after the drama of this book calms down.
For me, this is a five-star read. It’s an enjoyable, easy-to-read romance and a lovely location to escape to. It would work as a standalone but the whole series is great and worth reading in order to get to know the characters.
Once again Belinda Williams has brought us another brilliant addition to this series, that is fast-paced and captivating from the beginning. This is book three in the Freshwater series and they can all be read as a stand-alone but honestly, you wouldn’t want to miss anyone of them. This read gives you romance, fun and laugh out loud moments and most of all the ups and downs and feels that come along with this type of read, all in all, its all you can hope for from a Romance read! This read takes you on a journey full of pain, heartache, joy, happiness and much much more. I can’t wait to read more from this author and see where this series takes us next.
Daddy’s Girl (Freshwater Book 3) by Belinda Williams. I loved this book. Its a contemporary romance about Emily (Em) Georgiou who is from a huge greek family that wants nothing more than for her to settle down. Em is all about finishing her PHD and is not worried about settling down or relationships. Em’s dad is even trying to set her up with a guy from her dad’s company. Joel Scott has one rule, no relationships so when a man he’s working on a deal with asks him to pay attention to his daughter Joel is afraid not to because he doesn’t want to lose the deal. He can flirt with the best of them but that doesn’t mean he’s going to marry them. Until he meets Em, Joel is smitten and they end up hooking up. The only problem is neither of them meant to have feelings for the other. Em is devastated because she has been planning on applying for a job at Joel’s company. Have they ruined everything? Will they change their no relationship rule? Read Daddy’s girl to find out!
Daddy’s Girl by Belinda Williams is book three of the Freshwater Series. This book can be read as a standalone.
Em is driven and smart. She’s got too much to accomplish before she even thinks about settling down. Her father on the other hand thinks the time is now. Her father is always on the look out for men to send Em’s way. Starting a family isn’t a dream Em’s had for herself. That is until she meets Joel. What is it about Joel that has her picturing a different future? Joel doesn’t have time for relationships. He’s got a business to focus on. As he’s trying to close a deal with Mr.Georgiou, he offers to set Joel up with zen to get to know her more. Joel needs to close this deal so he takes him up on the offer, not expecting what he gets when he meets Em. He realizes everything Em is and knows he wants more than a hook up with her but how does he convince her he isn’t doing this to impress her father? Will these two alter the plans they had for their futures to make room for each other.
This was a good read! It was enjoyable and I really enjoyed watching the characters evolve and change and realize that that’s okay to do to make room for new dreams while holding on to the old ones.
This is the 3rd book in the Freshwater Series and I enjoyed this just as much as the first 2. The characters are likeable and you really feel a connection to them. It is nice to have a strong female lead character as well as a powerful successful male character.
Em has almost graduated with her PhD. With her goals focused on starting her new career and being successful she doesn’t have time for love or romance. However her father wants her to settle down so he keeps trying to set her up. Add to this her father’s job and how it conflicts with what Em believes in and this makes their relationship strained.
So when he try to set her up again she is less than impressed. Until she meets Joel Scott.
Joel is a successful business man. Like Em his focus is his work so when his prespective employer thinks he will like his daughter he goes along with the set up to win over his favour.
What he finds is that Em is nothing like he expected and he is drawn to the strong independent woman that she is.
Can love bloom when neither of them want it? Can Joel prove to Em that he’s interested in her and not just to win favour with her dad? Can they find room in their lives to focus on something other than their careers?
