About the Book:
Let me count the ways why falling into forbidden love is not my wisest move...
1. She works with me every single day.
Did I mention she's gorgeous, sweet, kind and smart?
2. She works in my home.
Playing with my five-year-old daughter. Teaching my little girl. Cooking for my princess. Which means...
3. She's the nanny.
And that makes her completely off-limits...But it doesn't stop me from wanting her. All of her.
The other nannies in this city don't call him The Sexy One for nothing. My boss, the amazingly wonderful single father to the girl I take care of every day is ridiculously hot, like movie star levels with those arms, and those eyes, and that body. Not to mention, the way he dotes on his little girl melts me all over. But what really makes my knees weak are the times when his gaze lingers on me. In secret. When no one else is around.
I can't risk my job for a chance at something more...can I? But I don't know how to resist him much longer either...

Another Sexy One w/ an Easy Heroine
I enjoyed Simon, and I loved how dedicated he was to being a good dad. I also enjoyed Abbey as a character. She was loving, intelligent, and was adorable in her moments.
This book was a good read, but I do have a few dislikes:
I'm finding that I don't like how EASY some of Ms. Blakely's female characters are. Sure, they go on and on about resisting and staying strong, but in a single moment they lose all reason and give up. I refuse to believe that real women act like that, especially when there is something as important as income and personal reputation to protect. Yes, the guy is hot, but will his hotness keep food in your belly? Will his sexiness protect you from wagging tongues and black marks against you in the nanny/linguistics communities?
Another thing that bothered me is that Abbey answered the friggin' door BUCK NAKED! Seriously? What a lame thought process -- "Oh, he said he was on his way home. Oh, he must have forgotten his keys. Oh, there's the peep hole, I can check to see if it's really him, but nah, I'll expose myself to whoever is standing out there in the hallway." At that point, I doubted Abbey's intelligence. For all her smarts, she gets super stupid around Simon.
Anyway, this book was an entertaining read, as one can expect from Lauren Blakely, but I think I'm getting tired of the weak-willed female leads. Come on, Lauren, make your women harder to get. They deserve a man who will fight for them, tooth and nail. It's sexier that way, anyway.
I received this book from the publicist in exchange for an honest review.
I gave it 4 Pulse Points, but I really want to give it 3 1/5.
