The Godparent Trap by Rachel Van Dyken is now live!

Life’s Too Short meets The Unhoneymooners in this sparkling, steamy, and swoon-worthy novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken, in which two sworn enemies must share house, home—and maybe their hearts—when they become co-parents after a sudden loss.

Colby’s living her best life: as a popular food blogger, she gets to fulfill her dreams of exploring the globe. But her world comes crashing down when a tragic accident leaves her co-guardian of her best friend’s two adorable children. Not only does she need to put down roots—fast—but she’ll be sharing custody with the one man she can’t stand sharing a continent with, let alone a house. Accountant-extraordinaire Rip values rules and plans. But when he loses his sister and his best friend and becomes an insta-guardian all in one night, Rip sees his organized life imploding. What he really doesn’t need is his sister’s irresponsible, flighty—albeit kind and gorgeous—best friend making it worse. Rip doesn’t trust Colby to take their new responsibilities seriously, while Colby can’t believe Rip thinks children will thrive under his rigid control. Yet soon Rip and Colby discover they need each other more than they hate each other. Could it be possible that following their hearts is just what their new little family needs?

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

The Godparent Trap is Rachel Van Dyken’s newest standalone rom-com. I love that RVD can write mafia and hilarious rom-coms. She kills me with her humor and The Godparent Trap is one of my favorites. The characters. The storyline. So good!
Colby and Rip are complete opposites. He is all about rules, structure, and numbers. She is all about traveling, food, and fun times. They are tied together for life since his sister is her best friend. They even went on one date years ago and it was a disaster. Rip thinks she is a hot mess who needs to get a real job and get her life together. Colby thinks he has a huge stick stuck up his ass and needs it surgically removed. They try to stay on their sides but they are always thrown together. And now, they were living under one roof to raise two children under the age of six. Two children grieving their parents while they were grieving she was grieving her best friends and he was grieving his best friend and sister. They needed to figure out a way to do this. To give Ben and Viera all the love and joy. Together.
That’s really all I can say about the story but I will say that I love this two! Hard. Their banter is on-point. Hilarious. Flirty. And a bit dirty. I loved seeing these two navigate life, family, and love. I laughed so hard and swooned too. I so, so love Ben and Viera too. They are so much fun, smart, and just all around adorable.
I ♥️ Banks!
“Did Colby just…leave?” I asked the universe and the two children I had to keep alive for the next few hours while starved of caffeine.
“She left a note!” Ben grabbed the yellow sticky note and frowned. “‘Suck-er.’ Hey, isn’t that a lollipop? Are we getting candy for dinner?”
“Aunt Colby? Are you OK?” Viera tugged on my shirt. “You’ve been staring at Uncle Rip like he’s a cookie!”
“I’ve got this, just go to work, change the world one tax deduction at a time.”
“I really should wear a cape,” I teased

The Godparent Trap is Rachel Van Dyken’s newest rom-com! This is an opposites attract, sister’s best friend story. Rip and Colby are complete opposites and have been in each other’s lives for years. They don’t get along at all. But after a tragic accident, they are now raising Rip’s sister’s kids. He lost his sister and she lost her best friend. They have to learn how to co-parent and live together. It’s not going well at first. Colby is a hot mess. She’s all over the place and up to this point has been a travel blogger. Rip is all about structure, rules and math. They never realized how hard raising two kids under five was. At first all the responsibility falls on her, but when the tables turn, Rip realizes how hard it actually is. Along the way, they lean on each other, talk, fight and realize they have always cared for each other. Now they are actually a family. Rip realizes life’s too short so he needs to get his girl. Colby lets down her guard so she can let Rip in. It was an emotional, fun and sexy story that had me crying, laughing and totally relating!
