I received this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
It’s Landon’s turn to watch over his young nephew for a week, but this executive doesn’t have time to chase a six-year-old around his perfect condo. In steps Kimber on Landon’s sister’s suggestion. Kimber doesn’t know the first thing about being a nanny, and she’s had a crush on Landon since she was a teenager. She needs money—money to buy out her ex’s half of her business. But this is a recipe for disaster. Nevertheless she reluctantly agrees to take the temporary live-in gig. Landon and Kimber both have baggage that would keep them single. So of course they make a sexy no-strings-attached agreement ;)
These are both great characters, the love scenes are hot, and the plot is believable. There’s no insta-romance…some because these two knew each other as kids and some because they each have things the other needs. Landon was a hero who needed to cut loose once in a while and Kimber was just the boho gal to help him. And Kimber needed a stable guy who wasn’t going to cut out on her for once.
So why didn’t I give it 5*? There’s a bit of miscommunication that makes the story drag on a little longer than I’d have liked.
Grab this one if you like reading about uptight professionals who finally lets loose for the perfect woman.
