Bridget, the nanny has raised Tad since the day he was born and loves him like he is her own. When Tad's mother dies, Tad is sent to live with his famous chef father, Paul. Paul has not been heavily involved in raising his son and really has no clue what to do when it comes to parenting a four year old. Upon realizing that Paul has no clue what he's doing, Bridget requests to stay on as Tad's nanny and Paul agrees. Paul quickly takes to his new role as father and finally sees that somethings are...more
I just couldn't get into this one. I liked the premise and even the idea of the characters, but there were a few flaws that I found it difficult to get over. First, the main character has a serious eating disorder with body image issues, and yet it is treated as something she gets over in a short period of time just through his acceptance of her. In fact, when she actually loses weight through exercise Paul reacts negatively. It just didn't seem realistic. Add to that the fact that Paul is a sel...more

I have to say this book was very interesting. Even though Bridget family was a piece of work. But Finally the Nanny has the man or her dreams. As per my opinion being a big girl, Bridget was more of being embarass how they way she looked; didn't want people watch her eat, it was because how her family treated her. That more should provide more confidence and to keep your head up high and just say F*&^ the World! I live and breath and enjoy. Kudos to Ms. Scott for a very good book. Have to sa...more

Freebie read on amazon - I had some hope with this story - I usually like romances revolving around boss/nanny growing closer and falling in love. Plus, I like when the hero (or heroine) is a chef. This story didn’t quite gel for me.

Bridget has been Tad’s nanny since he’s been alive and she adores him, but when Tad’s mother dies, she must bring him to his father, chef Paul who is having problems with his restaurant’s financial backers, and is completely distracted from the arrival of his child,...more

Okay this is a little bit of a spoiler so if you don't want too much of the story do not continue reading please!!!

Bridget was a nanny to a handsome little boy Tad she had been there since the day he was born. His mother Phoebe didn't really want him besides showing him off to her friends. His father Paul is a famous Cook and hardly has time for him.. He wasn't even there for his birth.

Fast forward a few years later...

Phoebe ends up dying and so Tad has to pack up his room & move to his fat...more
It is refresing when the woman in a romance story is not what one would think is the ideal body type. Bridget was loving, kind, beautiful and a size 16/18. I loved it that Paul seemed to really love all those things about Bridget. It always amazes me in relationships, how the couples don't communicate their true feeling to each other, which often leads to angst, but I guess that what makes the story interesting. It was fun to watch how Paul responded to Bridget's new look when he came back home,...more
This is my first book my Chelsea Scott.

Bridget's young charge has lost his mother, and now has to go live with his often absentee father, Paul, a famous and busy chef. She follows along after his father sends for him via driver!

I actually enjoyed the leading female Bridget aka The Nanny. Though she was often on the whiny side, she had a good reason to be. There a lot of women out there that probably think the same way she did in this book. Being a size sixteen isn't easy and add the fact that t...more
The synopsis of this book sounded so great, and loving foodie romance stories, I leaped on this book. The title says it all though. I really wanted to like this book, but the book just ended up rubbing me the wrong way. We're told that the chef has this massive temper, reminding me of Chef Gordon Ramsey, and it is quite apparent to me that the chef in this book was modeled, at least in part, off Chef Ramsey, but we don't actually see this temper in action in the kitchen until much later in the b...more
Solid 2-1/2 stars. Unintentionally funny (to me at least). Others may be thrilled with this book but the H rides that line of alph-hole and the h is a chubby neurotic who needed a therapist. She is British, but it takes place in New York & I was laughing when she ate sleeves of chocolate covered biscuits. (Yes, I know those are cookies across the pond)... like I said unintentionally funny. I could not believe the kid called her Nanny throughout the book either. I kept thinking if they had a...more
True romance

I really love this book I read this book in less than eight hours I just couldn't put it down. It actually made me feel like I was part of the story and I haven't had that before with any other books I have read.

It was sad in the beginning of the little boy lossing his mom but then the story just kept getting better and better and I can say that I felt like the characters came to life.

Happy reading!
bridget is a nanny, and has raised her charge, tad, since the day he was born. when tad's mother dies, bridget realizes that she won't be able to look after tad anymore, because now the father that she has never met has other plans. paul is a celebrity chef who has never really spent time with his son and doesn't know what a child needs or how one should be raised.

what i liked: i liked that paul never saw anything wrong with bridget, just accepted her as a person. bridget binge eating w...more

I love the fact that characters were flawed, but still good people. What I didn't love was Bridget's obsession with self-loathing and binge eating. Not being a size zero doesn't naturally corelate to having body image problems. I resent the implications that there is something wrong with me--that because I'm a size sixteen I'm unlovable. I like the fact that Paul thought she was perfect just as she was, yet, the book would have been perfect if she had thought she was perfect.

This was an A++ story of larger size woman in a HEA romance. Not a trash no storyline but a true heart felt story.
This authors storytelling ability is so good she takes you on a wild ride on her stories. All the things that happen keep you from wanting to stop part way at all. The characters a all so engaging & lovable. A total must read.
Donna Porter
I really enjoyed this book. Being a fuller figure girl I could feel for Bridget. I could understand her struggles with food and with the way she felt eating in front of people. It was so great to see a handsome successful man, fall for a girl like this. I truly loved this book and will recommend it to fellow readers.
Sherry Sweeney
Cute book..... kind of typical romance read but had a good story line and appreciated the issues of her body.... would recommend this as a read.

Again was FREE on Amazon Kindle FREE List... Thank You Amazon!!!
It's not your weight that matters but the people that surround you:)
More like 4 strs actually but it was such a ..."cute read" that I simply couldn't force myself to give this book less than 5.
Raquel Auriemma
A cute story although I don't think the cover model was anywhere near a 16/18 like the character. As someone who was that size not so long ago, I wish a real plus size model had been used.
What's up with using hyphens everywhere??? Time to take a break from these mediocre free Kindle books and find a free eBook from the library to satisfy my cravings for a decent book.
*** cute. A little racey. Her chubbyness hits close to home. Haha. I'm going to start running too...
Kerri Clements
The heroine of the story was weak in character and I felt very little empathy to her.
good light reading romance--great for a feel bad, dreary kind of day pick me up
