A Nanny for Nate
The plot is not original, but it is good. There is school bullying and school fight in this story and the adults show fairness and wisdom in the way they deal with it.
I didn't find the characters much developed, but they are cute. And I had two or three moments of incredulity but still, the story was entertaining. Or maybe I'm jus...more

There wasn't enough character development or anything to make me really like the guys. Story was cute I guess but i have read much better nanny stories, even ones this long that...more

It's okay...mmm, alright. Nothing groundbreaking, nor anything that made my heart beat faster. It was kinda stiff, the writing that is. Some authors just have a more formal, reserved style that does not serve romance very well.
The story itself was okay but I wasn't at all emotionally entangled nor much moved by the bedroom scenes either. I didn't quite feel the professed love and the sex was not chemistry laden either. All in all, a bit dry. And because the nanny and the daddy has been done...more
I loved this book. There's nothing particularly new here but it was so sweet that my teeth ached. I liked that about it.
The kid, Nate, was cute. There wasn't one thing annoying about him. The part where he calls his friend on the cell phone for advice was adorable. I guess when you're seven, a ten year old seems pretty wise sometimes.
This will most likely be a re-read for me. It was one of those stories that didn't make me tense or anxious, so when I need a calm read this story will be one t...more
The other story while more idealistic, was more profound somehow in character.
Review to come soon!
Its heartwarming, romantic and sweet.
EVERYONE should read it!!!!
I have read other stories with similar plots but I felt this one just seems to work perfectly. I also liked how the attraction and romance built slowly. So many books are ruined because the characters jump into having sex. This book doesnt make that mistake.
