Alexis

I will not sleep with my daughter's new nanny, no matter how hot he is.

And boy is he. Preston Hawthorne looks like he'd be more at home on a Hollywood set than playing dress-up with my daughter. But he dotes on her, bringing a sense of calm and order to our home. And the way he looks at me, the way he makes me feel is…unexpected. As if I might spontaneously combust.

Y’all. This book was BRILLIANTLY written. The story, the passion, every single thing about this book I loved.

Preston and Alexis were EVERYTHING. Gahhhhhhh I can’t even tell you how much I freaking enjoyed this book.

As much as I wanted to devour this book, I didn’t. I read it slow, and soaked in each page. From Chapter 1, I was hooked. #hooklineandsinker

Sophia, Hunter, Lauren all the extra people in this book played a significant role.

This book is available December 12, and when I say you

Unexpected by Jenna Hartley is an age-gap, single parent/nanny, contemporary romance novel that I devoured in less than two days. I was instantly intrigued from the, since its a fresh twist on the single parent/nanny trope.

The characters in the book were very well developed. I felt like I could relate to most of them on some level. Alexis, the heroine is a strong AF single mom. She's successful in her career, and incredibly confident on the outside. However, she struggles with a lot of the same

He eases his way into Alexis and his daughters life and literally rocks Alexis' world! Since she's an older woman, she lacks some confidence because she feels she's too old for Preston he is quick to

Three words: 𝘏𝘰𝘭𝘺. 𝘏𝘰𝘵. 𝘔𝘢𝘯𝘯𝘺!!

This book was just the feel-good romance that I needed in my life. Alexis is a strong-willed, hardworking, single mother who doesn’t need a man or love to complete her. That is until Preston crashes into her life to be the “manny” to her daughter, Sophia. Will she be able to resist her temptations or will she mix work with pleasure?

This book made me happy guys. The book is so cute and the characters are lovable. I mean Sophia is legit daughter goals! Also can we
