Real Men Don't Quit by Coleen Kwan

Real Men Don't Quit is loosely connected to Real Men Don't Break Hearts but can be read stand alone. 
Famous author Luke Maguire moves next door to single mother Tyler Jones.  He is a gypsy type keeping his possessions few and never staying anywhere very long.  He has Daddy issues as in his didn’t stick around.  When he looks in the mirror he sees his father and vows never to do to any woman what his dad did to his mom.  Tyler has Mommy issues.  Her mother dropped her off at a foster home and never looked back.  Tyler was in the system for a couple years until her aunt found her and took her under her wing.  Tyler is determined to be the best mother she can be to her daughter and not depend on anyone else.  When Luke and Tyler meet the chemistry is volcanic.  Can these two independent souls find happiness with each other or will they let the past prevent them from having a future?
I was afraid that this was going to be one cliché after another and admittedly there were some rather done scenes but over all I really enjoyed this story.  Luke was real and Tyler was charismatic.  Tyler is the girl I want to be friends with.  Luke wasn't perfect but that’s what made this story fun to read.  For those who enjoy contemporary romance this is a fun read.
