Read this such a long time ago and loved it....and on a re-read I can't fault my taste! Very cute/humorous book. And since I'm addicted to watching Supernanny show (with Jo as the care-taker and lil kids - I just adored this book!)

1-Independent heroine
2-Adorable kids (age-appropriate comments)
3-Adoooooorable hero
4-Shows that sexy gals can be maternal (another book which showed this was It Had to Be You - Susan Elizabeth Phillips)
5-After re-reading it I remembered Breathing Room by Susan E. Phill
A great romantic comedy by SB
What I like most is the 3 kids, they are very real - with real problems - very cute, as kids of 3,6,9 years old can be.
It is fun to see Jo, an independent businesswoman who knows nothing about kids, forced to take care of 3 kids, then pretend to be their mother in order to win a big job bid. And as if this is not enough, she has to fight her attraction to their father, John. At the end, she has to jilt her fiancé, Alan, at the altar, to be with her new family.

First of all, HA HA HA! This book was so great. I loved and adored the personality of every single character in this novel. The story was well written, funny and overall beautiful. I can't say enough good stuff about it!
Is a quick, fun read!

For some reason, I just imagined Colin Firth playing the dad and the book became doubly enjoyable ;)

What a good read. Enjoyed every page. Love it
