Charlotte is a walking disaster in every way. She’s high-strung and impulsive so she finds herself unemployed and broke just as she’s days from losing her apartment. She’s in no position to turn down a job, any job, especially not a very generous one including a good salary, credit card, Lamborghini and a place to live. Too bad this dream job is for a nightmare of a man, the angry former boss who took a salad to the face the last time he interacted with Charlotte.
I felt bad for Charlotte and could completely relate to her feelings about Mitch because he was clearly a horrible boss. Luckily, they had a much more civilized encounter before she becomes his nanny. Things escalate quickly because they go from tolerating one another to tearing their clothes off in a tent together in about twenty four hours. The attraction is strong but Mitch is afraid to get hurt again and Charlotte doesn’t seem to know what she wants.
I loved Mitch and I liked the story line but Charlotte was frustrating at times. She’s irresponsible and never stands up for herself so she seems much younger than twenty-five. She gets better as the story goes on, although I was confused by her secret. She was leaving for two weeks, which is nothing, but she was too afraid to tell her boyfriend (and her employer) about the trip so it became this whole thing. It was unnecessary drama and the story would’ve been fine without it, just make their flaws the issue instead of this contrived argument. I enjoyed this book including the secondary characters, especially Oscar and Phoebe. I received an ARC from Grey’s Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

Nanny Love Match book 2
Available October 14, 2021
Charlotte Ames despises hotheads. You know the type. It’s the growly, perma-scowling bully who blows his top at the slightest inconvenience. And her former boss, Top Chef Mitch Elliott, is the king of all hotheads.
How big of a jerk is he? Big enough to make her hurl a salad at the guy.
Those vegetables didn’t ask to be strewn across the floor. But Mitch deserved it!
Is he devastatingly handsome when he loses his cool? Could his stormy blue eyes, flashing with passion, melt the panties right off a gal? That would be a yes. Still, she can’t stand him. And she’d thought she’d seen the last of the culinary creep.
She was wrong.
On the cusp of eviction and with five bucks to her name, she needs a job.
Enter the exclusive Nanny Match Agency and an opportunity to make some real cash.
Sounds great, right? Wrong again!
The universe has one messed-up sense of humor. When she wakes up after a margarita bender and learns she’s become the hothead’s nanny, life goes topsy-turvy! But when the nanny dust settles, she sees another side of the man. A man who might be more than a hothead. A man who gazes at her with such intensity, she can barely keep from combusting.
Don’t fall for the hotheaded chef.
Her head knows what to do. If only she could convince her heart.
Could this nanny match be the match that changes everything, or will it get too hot in the kitchen for the nanny and the hothead?
