When fantasy becomes reality…

The last thing nanny Alice Sommers needs is to be caught skinny-dipping by her sexy, cranky-pants boss—in his pool. Her sister owes a crap-load of money to a slimy loan shark and Alice really needs this job if she has any hope of saving her family. Fortunately, her boss is richer than sin and needs her just as much.

This latest book, by Author Carmen Falcone, was a magnificent blend of growing love and passion and the strength and weakness of family. Both can cause happiness and anguish when not seen in its true form. In the opinion of this reader, this story is by far the best of all the authors books. It has her trademark of strong sensual characters and humor in surprisingly unexpected places and wonderful twist and turns. But it also shows how ones upbringing, be it viewed right or wrong, can strongly i ...more

Lorenzo is an extremely rich man trying to keep a secret. They have always kept things professional, until one fateful night. Then the fun really starts.

Loved this fun sexy read! Alice is hilarious and the perfect balance to her too serious crabass boss Lorenzo Baldi.

Alice is working as a nanny for Lorenzo's young daughter and she takes that very seriously. Right now though, she has a mountain of other problems. Mainly how to deal with the loan shark threatening her family!!

Lorenzo is worried about an art deal he needs to make to protect his name. The last thing he needs is to find his nanny skinny dipping in his pool. But now that he has that

This was a savvy, sexy read that I absolutely loved. You have a sassy, smart, curvy heroine Alice and a sexy, rich, handsome hero Lorenzo. When these two have to spend the weekend together it's gets very hot and steamy, it was a great story. She has had a crush on him while she worked for him as his daughters nanny but he doesn't want to get involved in any relationships. The time they spent together made him see that she was perfect for him. I loved this story so much and I loved the proposal s ...more

Alice Sommers promised her father on his deathbed that she would always take care of her mother, Judy, and her sister, Rachel who was bi-polar, and her niece Brenda.

She had a good job, that had great healthcare benefits, being a nanny to Cara Baldi, her father was very influential in the art world.

After only on chapter, I knew this was going to be Carmen Falcone's best book ever, and boy, was I ever right! I loved, loved, loved it, and O how I love Alice!

Alice Sommers is having the day from hell. She's about to go to her job as a nanny, when she's threatened by the loan shark she needs to pay; it's for her sister's medical bills. What had been $15000 has become $20000, and she doesn't have that kind of money. Her boss Lorenzo Baldi, whom she thought was away, surprises her skinny dipping,

This is the latest book by Carmen and let me tell you it is a book worth reading. Who doesn't want to misbehave for a weekend let alone with Lorenzo?

Alice promised her dad to take care of her family when he was gone and she did just that and put her life on hold to care for her family. Lorenzo is a single parent and had a bad relationship before his wife had passed. They both weren't looking for a relationship, but we all know what happens when two people pretend to be in a relationship-oops ins

Loved it!!!! It's about time that a "real" woman gets the man. Alice is a plus sized everyday working woman who has her issues like all of us do. Tho with family issues that make it hard for her to really do much with her life. "Relatable" she is to most women and that is freaking AWESOME!!!! Lorenzo is her boss, she is the nanny for his daughter. Alice has had a crush on Lorenzo for as long as she has worked for him. With him being an Italian stallion who wouldn't be crushing hard on that. They ...more

Alice is always taking care of everyone so when her sister owes a ton of money she makes the biggest mistake of her life. She risks losing her job which would turn her family upside down.
Mr B is her boss he doesn't expect to find her at his house when he has a business meeting and now he has a decision to make.

I received the book in exchange for an honest review. With that being said, this is a must read! Carmen did an excellent job in providing humor and heat in a page turner. I downloaded the copy and thought I would just cue it so it would open to read. Thought I'll read chapter 1, needless to say I read the book in one sitting. I didn't do a single thing until it was finished.

A Weekend of Misbehaving just may be my new favorite by Carmen Falcone. Pretty woman Alice Sommers aka the nanny gets put in a position to be a fake fiancé to her boss Lorenzo Baldi. She needed money fast to pay off a loan shark for her sister. He needed to convince Viola to sell him his father’s paintings to keep that part of his life a secret. When Alice decided to go skinny dipping in his pool it changed their entire relationship and their lives forever. He used the opportunity to have Alice ...more

Where to I sign up for a fake fiancé for the weekend? a Weekend of Misbehaving was full of twists and turns that will make you not want to put the book down until you’ve completed reading it. Humor interwoven with a bit of heat.

I loved seeing the family dynamics in the background of the story—a strong sense of family is missing in today’s world and it was nice to see it incorporated so well in a book. Also loved having the heroine not be the perfect Barbie/fashion model style of character. It ma

If you like strong, confident, creative heroines and heroes that are hot, hot, hot with a vulnerable streak and a willingness to do whatever it takes to get what he wants, private jets, exotic villas in Italy, and shopping trips to Dolce & Gabanna, you will LOVE this book.

My rating is 4,5 stars

Carmen Falcone is a gifted author. I had some much fun following the adventures of Alice and Lorenzo. Having a plus size woman as a principal character is a wonderful idea. She is never complaining about her weight and she is accepting herself unconditionally. That is a brilliant life lesson for all of us out there: Be proud of who you are.

Lorenzo is the hero of my dreams, and readers are going to totally fall for spitfire Alice as the leading lady. A sassy, plus-sized heroine who gets the dream guy? Yes, please!

Aaah, this story turned out to be so sweet! And honestly, how can you not love that, right?

I admit, the beginning was a bit rough for Alice and I had a few moments, where I thought will I even like the story, if the plot consists of her constantly dealing wit this awful man. But I should have know better. Alice has a mean loan shark after her, who won't care to cross a few lines to get his money back. And the worst part is that she

This is a wonderfully written story with likable characters, plenty of steamy scenes and a few surprises. The pacing is perfect for the storyline and doesn't feel forced or rushed. Alice is a smart, sassy, curvy heroine that is easy to relate to. And, Lorenzo is a rich, sexy hero with a secret. Ms. Falcone does an excellent job of bringing it all together and creating an enjoyable story. A must read.

Were you among the lucky ones this holiday season who received a gift card to your favorite bookstore? If so, are you like me, and consider it “fake” money, and therefore willing to risk it on a new to you author? If so then I suggest you might want to try Carmen Falcone.

Her newest release is A WEEKEND OF MISBEHAVING, and was my first, but not my last read by this talented author.
