Story Overview:
Is this man: A) a super-hot NFL player, B) the guy you’re sexting, or C) your new boss?

If you’re Carrie Herron, the answer is all of the above. First Carrie starts exchanging steamy text messages with the sexy single dad she meets in line at the grocery store. Then she lands a job—and a bedroom—as the live-in nanny for the daughter of the Milwaukee Dragons’ newest star. But when Carrie shows up for work and realizes that they’re actually the same guy, she has no choice but to try to keep things professional. After all, Seth Chamberlain is her boss now. Her chiseled, charismatic, oh-so-tempting boss. . . .

After getting traded from Houston to Milwaukee, Seth’s having a tough time keeping his head in the game, let alone setting up his daughter in a brand-new city. So if the only nanny his daughter will tolerate while he’s on the road is the gorgeous, cosplay-loving redhead he’s had his eye on, well, so be it. Surely he can resist Carrie until football season is over. But with her knowing glances and kissable lips driving him wild, Seth must decide whether he’s ready to put everything on the line.

My Review:
This isn't a particularly new storyline...football star falls for the nanny, but there were some things that really set apart this particular story. 

The first thing was the whole nerd/cosplay/comic book connection that Carrie and her charge have. I loved that bit of geekiness that flowed through the story. I also really loved that Carrie is a teacher who's all about really teaching children the facts, no matter what it takes and that she sees comic books are the way to do that. I love the idea of that. 

The other part that played into the fun of the book was the fact that Carrie cosplays as a very sexy Poison Ivy. She has natural, red, long hair and the fantasies that Seth has about her in costume are awesome.

Regardless of the overdone trope, I really enjoyed this book. It was overall entertaining and fun. The story engaged me and I never stopped reading it from the time I started reading it. Note: the meet-cute scene between Seth and Carrie was awesome. I giggled all the way through it. Such a great way to start the story. 

Overall, it was an entertaining read and I am most definitely looking forward to reading more of the Milwaukee Dragons stories.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
