Sleeping with the staff wasn't part of the plan.

Sensible, capable, and ruthlessly efficient, Hannah Kabbah is the perfect nanny… until a colossal mistake destroys her career and shatters her reputation. These days, no-one in town will hire her—except Nathaniel Davis, a brooding widower with a smile like sin and two kids he can’t handle.

Prim and proper Hannah is supposed to

Continuing my reprehensible habit of giving my own books five stars (what can I say, I'm a big fan) I thought I'd drop in to let you guys know that this book is great. 10/10 would recommend. (Disclaimer: I wrote it.)

#1 A Girl Like Her
#1.5 Damaged Goods
#2 Untouchable
#3 That Kind of Guy

Hannah’s emotions, she had come to accept, were often inappropriate.

In book 1 of the Ravenswood series, we focused on the younger Kabbah sister, Ruth, but we also got the chance to meet her fiercely protective, nursery-teacher-extraordinaire-with-a-criminal-record older sister, Hannah. I enjoyed Hannah Kabbah enough in A Girl Like Her, but I can’t say I got the chance to become terribly attached to her, so I was interested

Good Lord I loved this. Talia Hibbert knocks it out of the park again.

Hannah is a brilliant heroine, of the kind that I just know is going to get called unlikeable despite the fact that she's as relatable a character as I have ever encountered. She's ferociously hard-working, independent, protective, self reliant. She is also depressive, has anxiety, and is holding it together thanks to good medication, and she's also bloody angry--at the crap small town and its small minded inhabitants, at her

It was alrightttt. I much preferred the novella over this and book 1.
Not much to say since this book isn't going to stick with me. But will I give up reading Talia Hibbert's other books?

This is me struggling to put my finger on it.
Let's get this out in the open: I feel really raw in the past few days. So heroes like Nate--perfect, sweet heroes who ask consent and struggle with a perceived power dynamic issue are what I need to soothe the burn. I liked the set up quite a lot. The Hades-looking Nate returning to town after being an emo-type outcast. He's a dad. And, honestly, this is where my enjoyment of the set up would normally falter: Hannah becomes the nanny. This is a plot

I can’t read this anymore. Y’all, I am legit bored to tears. It’s a long story how I got started with the second book of this series instead of book 1. Short Version: I read a sample of A Girl Like Her and saw that it was on overdrive but was on a wait. I picked this up to read while I’m on hold and since I got a feel for her sister Hannah in the sample.

Besides me being bored, my main issue relied upon the characters. They were one dimensional and bland. I didn’t like Hannah at all. When she

Again another awesome read from this new to read author. Hannah was complicated but I loved her. She was messy, struggled with depression, over-thinking and feelings of insecurity but she was amazing. I think the shining points in these books are the awesome heroes and Nate was no exception. He is a widower raising two kids who moved back home to be near to his sick mother. Hannah who loves children becomes his nanny. I loved how their unequal dynamics were brought up when in most books the ...more

4.5 Stars / 3 Steam Fans

OMG, where did this book come from! I was completely drawn in and connected with Hannah and Nate’s journey through this entire story. Hannah is dealing with some mental health issues and Talia did an amazing job at making her struggles very relatable. So yes there are some content warnings about depression and anxiety. Nate is a single dad that has returned to Ravenwood to help take care of his mother. Hannah and Ben knew each other as kids and both had secret crushes but

I received an early copy of this book from the author in exchange of an honest review

Actual rating: 4.5 stars

Full review originally posted on my blog: Word Wonders

Cause of death: Killed by too many Untouchable induced feelings.

CW: depression, anxiety, terminal illness, chronic illness.

I’m still trying to gather myself off the floor and put my thoughts into coherent words because TOMORROW IS RELEASE DATE AND I GOTTA SCREAM MY LOVE FOR THIS LITTLE PIECE OF HAPPINESS!!! I’m not sure how
2.5 stars. Started off strong then lost steam.
But I'm here for the bi, black, plus size (not really though, UK size 16 is a US size 12 and I refuse to live in a world where that's considered plus size), and mental health rep.

I am all about Talia Hibbert's kind heros and smart heroines.

The consent culture in this book is great and the awareness of the power dynamic of employer and employee. While we are dealing with serious subjects of depression, ill parents, and grief, this is overall a joyous book about really loving someone.

Nate just adores every little think about Hannah. It is amazing and such a happy feeling.

Hannah is so funny and fun. I love that she is bisexual and this part of her is so integrated into
DNF @ 35%

My loan ended on this. But even then, this was really hard to get through for so many reasons and I was tempted a few times to DNF. But my library loan did the job for me.

The hero and heroine had no chemistry for starters. And I don't like how Talia Hibbert writes her heroines. Sorry but I just don't. I tried, I really did even after my disappointing experience with Book 1 A Girl Like Her. This one I really wanted to read because I was intrigued by both leads' backstories. I liked

This! Series! Is! Amazing!

This book is heart-tugging, soul-warming, utterly charming, and hilarious. I loved it!

Also, Rupert Channing narrates this perfectly. Just perfectly. Oh, yummy book :-D
This book was just as amazing as the previous two in the series, and I cannot wait for more with these characters!

It's been a while since I've devoured a romance book as I did with Untouchable. This book was like crack. If you've been following me for a while now, you know that I haven't sat down and finished a book in one day in months, but Untouchable made me abandon all my work and just lay down in bed to finish up this book. I loved everything about it and Talia Hibbert has certainly got a fan in me. :)

In the first book of the series, we met Hannah, Ruth's sister. Untouchable tells her story. When
Another wonderful addition to the Ravenswood series. I adored Hannah so much & her depression is handled with such care. Nate is a widower and single dad who moved away as soon as he was able and has returned to Ravenswood to care for his mother. There is an author’s note at the end that helps contextualise this—being misdiagnosed with a terminal illness (she is sick but it’s not terminal). Anyway, he was a lovely character as well. I know the falling-for-the-nanny plot doesn’t work for ...more

Yes, thank you again Talia for writing another great read! Since reading Ruth and Ethan's story, I wondered about the other Kabbah sister. And now we wonder no more, because she and Nate were a delightful couple. Typically I'm usually bored out of my mind with the usual nanny & employer drama romance, but this one fit the bill wonderfully. Hannah is a bit neurotic and I loved her, with all of her eccentricities and giving nature.

Nate is a worrywart, and also a natural protector as he tries

This was wonderful.

I'm not generally a fan of boss/employee romances, but it's handled so carefully here. Nate is fully aware of the power dynamics between them, and neither one of them ever brushes that aside. They care for each other deeply, and that care comes across so vividly on the page that I felt cared for as a reader.

Highly recommended.

I really like this series.

I was interested in Hannah's story ever since book one when she did what she did for her sister.

I don't remember their dad being mentioned in the first book, but God what a twat.

I saw a lot of myself in Hannah and I was so very happy that she was able to get her happy ending.

Now I want to read about Rae and Zach.
Loved this childhood friends to lovers workplace bwwm romance! I definitely recommend to give it a read!
4.5 out of 5

Not quite sure why I marked this one as read since I was ‘currently reading’ when I started posting about it. Maybe it marked itself complete when I closed the book *queue scary music* Having NOT marked it as read myself, it didn’t get a grade or a review so here goes.

I give this one a 4.5 out of 5. I love the main characters Hannah and Nathaniel (Nate). The book is set in England which I enjoyed right out of the gate. Hannah and Nate have known each other for years though not well,
Untouchable is an experience. Whether you're in Hannah's mind, where order, control and chaos clash almost twenty four seven, or in Nate's mind which can't help but focus on all the things that make him guilty, you'll be in the right place.

Low on angst, heavy on the laughs, passion and kindness. Also, you'll smile almost as much as Nate does. I use "almost" because this guy is just one word around Hannah and it's smiley, so yeah. I kind of envy Nate for having Hannah. I want Hannah. I want her
It was pretty much a perfect romance novel. Very feel good, well written with beautifully complex characters that we seldom see in this beloved genre.

Tags: forced proximity (not due to a kidnapping), grumpy heroine, enthusiastic hero, men with kids.

Definitely recommended reading!

When’s Rae’s book coming?

4.5 stars? - what a balm this was after my last read - easy, short, and tbh a delight. Both of these characters aren't really happy until they find and talk to and love each other - and it could be so easy for Hibbert to bog the romance down with that weight, but she balances that consciousness with a kindness. Neither of them do anything that I think could be hurtful or unforgivable to the other, even when the relationship reaches that climatic strain.

Also I just loved these people a lot.

God. So beautiful. This is the third book I've read by Hibbert and now I'm reading for her depictions of mental illness, trauma, autism, etc. The sexy sex and wonderful love stories are just cherries on my representation sundae.

But seriously, guys. Her writing on depression and anxiety on this was literally breath-taking. I had to stop reading several times and just think. In particular, there's a passage about fifty pages in where she's linking colors to emotions and it's just whoa.

Widower w/ kids returns home (photographer)

Black heroine w/ depression; hired as nanny

Slow, low burn

Loved that she wasn’t always into sex/orgasms & it WAS NOT A PROBLEM

But it WAS hot when they did ;)

I'm not saying I WANTED the kids to be a huge part of the book -- but I expected them to be, well, a part, period? They show up once or twice on page, briefly, and otherwise it's like they're not even there. It just didn't fit, especially since, you know, she's hired as their nanny and she

I think what made this one so much fun to read was because both Nate and Hannah were both so neurotic. I think part of that might have been because they had a crush on each other as kids, then don't see each other for years. Things could have been a bit icky with Nate being Hannah's boss, but they talked about things before hand at every step of their relationship. The ending to this one was great, it fit this couple to a T.

Talia Hibbert is an award-winning, Black British author who lives in a bedroom full of books. Supposedly, there is a world beyond that room, but she has yet to drum up enough interest to investigate.

She writes sexy, diverse romance because she believes that people of marginalised identities need honest and positive representation. Her interests include beauty, junk food, and unnecessary sarcasm.

I am Hannah fucking Kabbah. I go to the supermarket every week without a shopping list. I once memorised an entire psychology textbook the day before an exam after realising I'd been revising the wrong module for weeks. And guess what? I got an A. I spent the first few years of my professional life keeping multiple toddlers alive. Do you know how hard it is to keep toddlers alive, Ms. Chai Latte? It's really fucking hard. And I was good at it. I do not get things wrong. I do not make mistakes. I do not fuck up FUCKING CHAI LATTES. DO YOU UNDERSTAND ME?

This is what Hannah thought. But what she said was...

Oh. Wait. Shit.”
