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.) ...more

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,

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
Hannah Kabbah can’t do her preferred job of caring for children, not since a few years back when she took a sledgehammer to the car of the man who emotionally abused her sister. But when widower Nate Davis moves back to the village of Ravenwood with his two small children, he needs someone kind, practical, and capable to help out -- and Hannah exactly fits the bill. As they work and spend time together, they each begin to realize that maybe they’ve found someone to fit into their hearts, as w

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

1,000 heart eyes for this book!

Talia Hibbert does it again, but then again I am not surprised! I am hooked on her heroines. Hannah was everything! Quirky, full figured, lover of bold lipsticks, and wore her hair in braids. Nate, oh Nate. I love a single dad that is a good dad...tattoos don’t hurt either and a dirty talking mouth. This book just wrapped me up in its contents and I truly didn’t want it to end. I love live in nanny Romances.

Read this book people!!

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

So....while I do definitely love Talia Hibbert and plan to read more by her, this wasn't it, chief. At least for me. I did like the romance. I did like the main character and related to her in terms of anxiety and self-doubt. I also love a good au-pair/nanny story. However, compared to book 1, this one felt really clunky. Certain scenes, certain moments that felt disjointed and one smut scene that took me out of the scene because...why did that they pick that spot to do that of all places? ...more

I think I like this story way better than the first one. The men in this series are just sweethearts 😍

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 empl ...more
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.

Actual rating: 4.5 stars

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

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 Ha

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 wh

Hmm. Not a 5 star read like the first book in the series for me. I think the biggest issue is that Hannah's struggle and issues didn't even make sense after a while. I don't know how to explain it. It just felt like we didn't get this sense of who she was in the last book and then we have a lot of stuff thrown at us about her depression, her sense of self, etc. and Nate though I loved him, was once again way too perfect to be true. It would have been more realistic if he struggled with getting i ...more

"It's okay," he said. "It's dark. And it's nighttime. And I'm drunk. So it doesn't count."
"What doesn't count?"
His eyes slid shut again, freeing her from that icy, exhilarating trap. "Wanting," he said softly. Too softly."

I'm starting to sense a trend in Talia Hibbert's book series. Book 1 is about a heroine that makes me me happy, and I'm rooting for her to succeed, and when she does get her happy ending, it makes me very satisfied.

But Book 2. Book 2 feels like Talia Hibbert's come into my lif

Oh this is my favourite so far!

Adored Hannah, I loved how her depression was conveyed, the bi-rep and just everything about her really.

Nate, like Evan and Samir, was darling and I've since read that this series in bundled up for sale in Hold Me Close: A Cinnamon Roll Box Set and well that should tell you all you need to know about the men in this series. One of my favourite things about these is how they ask for consent and man that shouldn't be so unusual in books that it needs commenting but

This! Series! Is! Amazing!
This book was just as amazing as the previous two in the series, and I cannot wait for more with these characters!

Read the full review on my blog!

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

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 everyone ...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 to g

This was my least favorite of the trilogy, but that is only saying a little as all three books are great. By far, my favorite thing in this book was how Hibbert navigated the power imbalance, straight on, and looking it right in the eye. It was refreshing. I think the pacing of the relationship, and how long the "oh no we can't" portion of it went on was the thing that threw me the most off, but overall, it was every bit as easy to read as the others.

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.

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

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...
