Srikkanth Bhattacharya gave up on the idea of having kids after he discovered his attraction to men. When his best friend asked Sri to be her private sperm donor, he anticipated seeing Jill and their child on occasion, without the complications of being a full-time parent. Hearing of Jill’s death and being faced with providing a home for their daughter scares Sri, but one look in her innocent eyes and he knows there are no other alternatives.

Jaime Frias is Sri’s roommate and will do anything in his power to keep Sophie and Sri together. Overtime, their friendship blossoms into love and the two create a family unit with Sophie. Sri is approached by Social Services, leaving him running scared. Will he have to choose between the man he loves and the daughter who owns his heart? Will they find a way to stay together?

Ariel Tachna’s latest release Her Two Dads introduces us to Sri and Jamie. The two bachelors take on the responsibility of a newborn like pros. Where Sri is nervous because of his inexperience with children, Jamie handles the situation with the seasoned experience of an older sibling. Together, they make fathers any child would be blessed to have.

Ms. Tachna’s story takes you on an emotional ride; from the pain of discovering his friend’s death, the fear of becoming a parent, the realization of awakening feelings for his close friend, back to fear as their family unit is threatened. The characters have an emotional depth that makes you feel their happiness and pain, while you root for them and the precious little girl who has stolen their hearts. It’s easy to believe that, even though we’ve come so far in society, there are still those who have intolerance.

Her Two Dads is a fast-paced story with a well developed storyline that will leave you begging for more. It’s a story about overcoming hatred and bigotry, the joys of parenthood and discovering love when you least expect it. Those who have enjoyed this author’s stories will be pleased they bought a copy.
