Please, if you're really considering to read this book, turn around and don't waste your time, this book isn't worth the effort to read it. There were so much things who bothered me that I don't even know where to start. It was kind of weird and I don't even want to hear about it again. Sorry.

*chuckles* This was... corny and totally not my type of thing. Sickly sweet. I dunno how I got it. It's definitely PG and everyone is a Mary Sue, not just the MC.

Edit: I ended up rereading this because it was one of only three books on my cell phone. I liked it a bit better the second time around, though I still think it's insanely fluffy. So I raised the rating to three stars.

Short sweet read. Wish there was some sex, that man was way to fine to not have a sex scene. But enjoyed the story. Now to find some smut.

Celine Santini accepted a job offer that billionaire bachelor Pierce D'Amato offers her as a nanny to his four-year-old charge. Celine is captivated by the green-eyed heartthrob who takes her heart ransom but how can she give in to her feelings when they're from two totally different worlds? But from the first day he lays eyes on Celine, Pierce D'Amato knows he is lost. The more he gets to know Celine the more he realizes there's a lot more to this woman than he could ever have imagined. Her int ...more

I'm wondering why this book is included in the Bad Boy Millionaires series when the guy here is supposed to be a very decent and honorable businessman. Seems off to me.
Maid in the USA was a feel-good HEA story but lacking in depth and sizzle. I didn't feel the connection between the H/h. It was like they just decided that they're in love but i didn't feel it. Probably the best part of the book is Kylie. Yeah, she made me cry but if the main point of the book is romance, i'm sadly disappointed. T
There’s no heart or soul in this story. What it has are the sharply cut pieces of a clockwork machine imitating those things. Nothing’s shown and everything is only told. It’s all very calculated including the rushed romance between two cardboard characters—Celine and Piece—who don’t have any chemistry. Pierce is a funny uncle in a sense that he doesn’t really interact with Kylie, his niece, rather than he speaks about her to Celine and that’s it. The neigbour, Sophia is a ridiculously one-sided ...more
Ah, this was a very quick, sweet read. After so many angsty books, I've taken a break to enjoy some romance lite.

I love this story. A few hot & sexy make out sessions, but no all the way sex, yet as a romance tale, it did it for me.

Pierce the Billionaire & Celine the ex maid come nanny. So much emotional drama, squeezed into a novella. For a short story, there is so much going on. The child that Pierce finds himself guardian for, Kylie. She has had more grief in her 4 years of life that could almost bread an adult.

They are an unconventional but wonderful family in the making. It's funny the near di
Oct 29, 2012 Christy rated it it was ok
This was a sweet, cute romance that was enjoyable but predictable. My main problem with this book is that it is misleading in title and series title. Celine isn't a maid but a nanny; it's a small distinction but it's there. And, Pierce isn't a bad boy as the series title suggests - a bachelor yes, but nothing about him is "bad boy." To me it felt like the author was trying to make this story fit particular keywords in order to increase sales/interest, but it wasn't the story you bargained for wh ...more

Really quick read. Very touching, but the story fell flat for me. This was not at all what I would consider 'bad boy romance'. It also was not about a maid. The h was a maid for the first two pages, at which point she took a job as a nanny. (She is also from France but is studing in the States). So at first glance, the title is quite misleading. I finished this book in about an hour, as I kept turning pages hoping for more development to the story. Alas, I came up empty handed. It's cute & s ...more

I am so thankful I took the time to read this book. The story itself touched my heart. I judged this book by the title, and cover and almost didn’t read it. This book was nothing like I thought it was. Celine had high morals. She met Pierce while she was working at a hotel as a maid. The meeting was funny but I won’t spoil it for you. He talked her into coming to work for him as a nanny to a sweet little 4 year old named Kylie. Kylie’s mother had an accident, and was in the hospital. Pierce was ...more

I was prepared to be skeptical. However, Ms. Angelo gave readers a fully developed standalone novella in 88 pages. Most Harlequin writers need twice the page count and fail. I was so prepared for the typical cliffhanger which forces people to buy more books but this story had none. I look forward to reading more. The ending could have been less rushed. Celline, Peirce, and Kylie should have their own series, I think they are sweet. I think a longer novel featuring them would be thoughtful, well ...more

Wow, a HEA with no sex scenes, because the main character actually wanted to be a virgin when she got married. Yet, guess what it was still a very good heart warming, funny & sweet story of three people who are thrown together but under strange happenings form a loving family. I myself loved this book
Elle (Ligia)
Though an entertaining read, it was anything but believable. It was a bit cheesy, and even though that's not usually a problem for me, it seemed that here it was. There were a few inconsistencies plot-wise, and if I could notice them, then you know...

It did make me giggle here and there, but mainly I had a hard time connecting with the characters.

Short sweet cute romance!! I loved it right from the start to the end. I love Pierce and his adorable cute little niece.Just love the part where the little girl calls Pierce 'DADDY ' and Celine ' MOMMY' . :D

I finished reading this book in 2 hours and I can say that I was really hooked by the story of the Billionaire "Pierce" and the Nanny "Celine".

The book was really a fast pacing story.. A quick read. I was craving for more specially when the book ends that's why I rated this book 4 stars.

This one is SO very bad! 

The general plots fine, but she completely minced it. There's insta-love. Insta-connections. Insta-bad bitch, who randomly pops up and disappears, even when she is still in the scene... who of course, insta-converts in a handy little paragraph in the end. And we haven't even got to the generalized skipping of time and details! The list could go on!

So, the maid walks in on him naked, and he instantly knows (before she's stopped screaming) that she is THE ONE who will conn

Who's behind every hotels' 1206 presidential suite? A naked Pierce D’Amato of course. With his piercing green eyes, narrow waist and board shoulders. Wait a minute, I'm just getting word that this isn't a typical occurrence. Darn. Sorry single ladies. However, we can dream, can't we?
Imagine Celine Santini's shock when she walked in on this remarkable specimen of a male. Hair sleeked in an old fashion bun, clothed in a less than fashionable

I felt reluctant to review this book. Half of it because I actually expected the outcome of this book, and the other half was that I wasn't entirely sure I could convey my feelings in words. But I'll try.

First of all, the title is misleading. A usual―I presume―interpretation of the title would be of a woman who was working as a maid, and either found love while on her job, or in her employer. I'll be as honest as to say that the heroine of the story being a nanny was far from my mind.

This book took me by surprise when I first read it, some how I forgot to give my review. The father in this, Pierce is a sweet heart,so adorable that I. was crushing on him. Then the adorable Kylie was a great character to have, as kids go they can work or not, she made the book so much fun. I know the book was how Kylie comes in Pierce"s life. Then comes Celine as the nanny and I want say how that happens, you have to read book. Celine I s just what that little girl needed, she gives her all th ...more

This book had lots of potential, but sadly it fell short. It major problem was it was way to rushed. You really didn't get the full character development. Its a love story you as the reader are suppose to want them together no matter what. but this one you did but then again did he really love her? if he did then why didn't he do more like stop her from leaving. and then that proposal was so so so bad. like really you gonna propose in your driveway with the girl who has been telling Celine who y ...more

Oh that was Terrible!!!!

This was awful. The writing, the characters, the plot, the weird relationships, and stories that went absolutely nowhere. It read as if the author wrote down every dramatic situation she could think of from a soap opera put them in a hat and whenever her story seemed to stall she grabbed one out and thought "brilliant" added it in and kept writing.

This story just went so wrong. The whole "Maid in Manhattan" angle/premise to the story just didn't work. When Pierce and Cel

I have made it my mission to go through all of the books I have on my kindle, and read them all. This happened to be one of them. While I was mildly intrigued at what the description had laid out for me, I was unimpressed within a chapter. The whole, maid being whisked away by a gorgeous, wealthy, intelligent man from the working class job which she holds... Overdone, to say the least.

Then there's the whole, he knew he had to have her as his nanny *wink wink* from the moment he saw her. GAG. I w

Not sure why this is in the "Bad Boy Billionaires" series: the male protagonist may be a billionaire (it's mentioned once or twice) but he's not a "bad boy", in fact he's really a good guy, almost too much so. The book starts off okay, even if it is on a rather ridiculous premise -- the male protagonist hires the female protagonist, a maid at a hotel, to be nanny for his ward because he can tell in an instant that she would be the best for the child where all the other nannies provided by nanny ...more
