Story Overview:

Cameron O’Leary, a 4th generation firefighter turned arson investigator, thinks he’s the luckiest man in the world—after a year of sickness in the family, everyone’s finally on the mend, and his life can go back to its even keel. But even though Cameron has moved to Boston to be there for his family, some sort of live-in nurse is still necessary, given the demands of his job.

Erin Crosby is financing her master’s thesis in social work by acting as a home health care nurse. Working for Cameron seems like the perfect gig—low key, plenty of time to work on her thesis, and the patient is lovely. She might never have lived with a man before—she’s never found anyone she cared about that much, had barely even considered it—but Cameron is easy to live with, and an easy friendship blooms between them.

But it gets harder and harder for Cameron to keep his hands off of his charming employee—and for Erin to remember that she hasn’t really moved into Cameron’s life.

My Review:

This is a novella, but it's a story that isn't short on emotional punch. I really liked this one and it appears to be setting up a great new series. And this book is interesting just because it's a modern twist on the old governess/nanny trope that used to be so popular in historical novels. 

Cam's daughter just came home after a 2 year battle with brain cancer. She's recovering, but still weak and he wants someone with medical experience to watch over her for the next month until her normal nanny can come back to her job. Erin is in between jobs and has the experience Cam and his daughter needs so she hires on. Immediately there is great sexual chemistry between these two that flamed off the page. I love how the author wrote the two of them. Their connection is fast, but it never seemed rushed or too much to me. But it's not just heat. The book is fun. The characters are engaging and witty. I constantly found myself smiling through the scenes in this one. 

Overall, I really liked it and can't wait for me. I definitely recommend this one as a fun, hot, sexy read!

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