From the publisher:
Don’t touch the nanny. It’s one rule I’m most certainly going to break.
Since becoming a single father, I have two things that keep me sane—my daughter Lily and playing football for the NFL. But when my meddling sister hires a nanny without my knowledge, I’m not thrilled to come home and find the woman has taken over my house. Our instant attraction is one more complication I don’t need in my life.
But my daughter loves Amelia, and I will do anything for that tiny munchkin. Even if it means walking around with blue balls most of the time. Why does the nanny have to be so sweet—and drop dead gorgeous? She’s driving me crazy. Never in my life have I wanted a woman more.
I just need to make it through this season. I can do that. Hands free, of course. But then there’s that moment, and I know she’s thinking what I’m thinking and, well, yeah. Screw the rules…
This is a typical romance plot line, and when it is done as well as this book is, it is easy to understand why this storyline gets used again and again.
Good looking, built football player? Check!
Single dad/widower? Check!
Gorgeous nanny with a heart of gold? Check!
It’s all here, including a really cute kid, some sad background, hot sex and the happily ever after. This one checked all the boxes for me and I read it in one sitting. The football was just an added bonus – the bit of fantasy with the Browns may just come true one of these days (love me an underdog!) And I loved this book!
