MY RATING: 3.5/5 STARS
I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
The CEO’S Nanny Affair was something I wasn’t expecting. Our single father, Linc Ballantyne has actually a lot of kids that he takes care magnificently. He’s a family man all around and it was refreshing to read from a Harlequin Desire book.
However, I’m quite picky with my harlequin novels. Some might say I’m old schooled and I prefer romances with characters that grow families together and have no children from past relationships. I know. I hear you booing. In real life, I’m much different. It doesn’t matter to me but in books, I want things to be cookie cutter perfect. So, needless to say, this book was a little odd for me to adjust to since this book was basically cheaper by the dozen two.
Moving forward, it was beautiful to watch Linc and Tate grow closer together. Through multiple failed attempts at hooking up, it was extra special to see when they finally did. They both seemed to want to keep their feelings light, not too complicated, which also led to a lot of misunderstandings about the state of their relationship.
The ending was satisfying. Tate was a career woman who didn’t want to give up her dreams of being a travel writer because she simply loved her work but she also loved Linc and the kids too. In the end, she had to make a decision of whether or not she could live suitcase to suitcase or settle down or even…a compromise.
Read this one if you love big happy families.
