There is no way Gina Dunn's brother is a thief and she will go to any means necessary to prove it. In so doing, Gina takes on a job as a nanny to Will Sinclair's twin four-year-old sons, Harry and Ian. Will was Gina's brother's boss, and her brother repeatedly told Gina that Will was the actual thief.

Little did Gina realize that working with Harry and Ian would create problems on a bigger level. Gina never expected to fall head over heels in love with the boys. What is more is that it doesn't ta
This story was so freaking cute, i loved Gina, Will and the boys so much. I really emphatized with them and their problems, and loved their integrity when difficult situations happened.
The romance was so adorably sweet and the moments between the couple and the kids had me with silly smiles and warm feelings, theirs are such a wonderful family.
I love cute romance books with children as an important part of the plot, and this one was no different. I hope Ms. Karen writes more books in this h

The plot sounded like Lisa Kleypas’s Lady Sophia’s Lover.
The h seeking revenge against the man who did wrong to her brother.

The hero here is a single dad with two bratty kids.
Nothing special about the book but was interesting enough atleast in the beginning.

The H was a boring dull guy. (view spoiler)

Even though she has no experience with children she applies for the position as his children’s nanny and although the interview didn’t go well she connected with the kids and was hired.

When his ex-wife passes away Will suddenly finds himself the father of twin boys and is struggling. Due to their grief the boys aren’t acting as Will would like and he is trying t

This story was a romance that was hard to classify. It was part enemies to lovers, but sort of a “fall in love with the boss” as well. Gina applies to be a nanny (with no experience) to a pair of boys to get close to their father (Will), who she thinks has wronged her brother. Of course, there is an attraction between the two of them that neither wants to acknowledge. The scenes with the boys were great, the romance was a little uneven, and the plot point about the brother and his connection to ...more

THE DADDY COACH is a sweet, heartwarming romance between two unlikely people who neither have the slightest clue on how to raise twin boys. Boys who have just lost their mother and the man they called “Daddy” in a horrible accident. Now, Will has discovered that from his brief marriage he has sons that he was never made aware of and he is dumped in the deep end of the pool without the least idea of how to swim.

Gina believes her brother’s story with all her heart, afte

Overall, Karen Muir's "The Daddy Coach" was a quick, sweet read. I would have rated it 3.5 stars if half stars were possible on Goodreads, but decided to round up because I genuinely liked the main characters, Gina and Will, as well as Will's super cute twin sons, Harry and Ian. Their lovable mischief added a nice touch of lightness and fun to the story.

Gina's interactions with Harry and Ian were endearingly awkward at first, but her love for them was clear as she became more comfortable with ch

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Entangled Publishing via NetGalley and I am voluntarily reviewing it.

What a delightful tale. I adored Will Sinclair's two boys Harry and Ian. I could really see them as real little boys. Ms. Muir did an excellent job writing them.

Will Sinclair is looking for a nanny for his twin boys. No one has seemed like a good fit in caring for them. His boys are just a little difficult. They lost their mother and her husband in a plane accident. Will receive

If I had to sum this one up in five words or less, they would be this was cute, but...

While Gina’s reason for coming into Will and the boys’ lives was a bit questionable (surely she would have done a tad bit more digging into her brother’s story before concocting this plot? She is a scientist, after all, and even just seeing him during their jail visits it’s clear he’s got some issues.) the whole “daddy coaching” aspect was very sweet. Harry and Ian were adorable, and made every page that they w

This is a sweet romance that I just loved. Gina lies to get a position as a nanny in Will's home for his twin boys. She does this because she thinks he got her brother wrongfully convicted of theft and wants to find proof in his house. However, there was a major problem with her plan - she doesn't particularly like kids or know what to do with them.

This is a fun and clever story that drew me right in. I wasn't sure what to expect, but found myself drawn into the characters and their story.. They

When Gina’s younger brother is imprisoned for theft but claims to have been framed by his employer, Gina hopes to be able to find evidence to exonerate him. Luckily Will is looking for a nanny for his twin four-year-old boys and while Gina has zero experience with young kids, her BF’s “glowing references” and the internet lands Gina a one day trial and the job when the boys totally warm to her.
I love intelligent heroines & Gina, a botanist working on her thesis is that. But more that just brains

What a heartwarming story for Will and Gina. I loved watching Gina open up her heart to both Will and his boys. The scenes with her and the boys were so sweet and fun. Then watching Will soften towards his boys, trying to make a family was loving. I felt for Gina when she was trying to figure out the jewelry fiasco and how it would impact her, her brother, and Will. The interactions between her brother and herself were a little disheartening. I wish we could have seen a little more of them in th ...more

Honestly, while the writing was fine, I found the premise of the story very weird. For a supposedly smart woman, Gina could have done a bit of research to get more facts into why her brother was in trouble and how Will fit into the picture. It was a bit too messy, plot wise.
Her interactions with the twins were fun and she grew to love them, but by then I was just feeling meh about the whole “relationship” between the leads. I didn’t, hate the book but I didn’t love it, either. Honestly, 3 stars

This was the first book that I have read from this author and it was an ok read for me. Will and Gina are brought together because her brother said that Will framed him for a crime. Gina decides to get the evidence that she needs by posing as a nanny for his twin boys. While looking for the evidence that she hopes will free her brother, she ends up finding something else. They were able to find the HEA they both deserved but it felt rushed at the end to get there.

I received an ARC of this book

At first I wasn't sure that I would like The Daddy Coach. I was a bit confused about Will (thought he was a cop who had wrongfully arrested Gina's brother!) so it took me a few chapters to figure out what was actually going on.
I grew to love the boys, Gina, Will and their story. So glad to have had the opportunity to get to enjoy a taste of Karen Muir's writing. I will be back for a second helping for sure!

Gina is posing as a nanny to get close to Will and find out what he did to put her brother in jail. The longer she spends with him and his twin boys, the more she starts to care for them and wonder if her brother was telling the truth.
Soon she has to make a decision on who to trust, but what will happen to her relationship with Will and his sons once they fnd out the truth about who she is?

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for a voluntary and honest review.

You will love the characters is this story, especially the twin boys Harry and Ian. Gina takes a job as their nanny because she suspected there father Will of being a thief. She is not a nanny and has never been and the antics that take place reflect that. She gets up to some funny mishaps with the boys but prove to be just the thing they and their father needed in life. You will be regaled by some great family fun times and watch as Will and Gina fall in love and becomes a complete family.

A sense of humor was a must when I taught elementary grades and Head Start, and I’ve always loved books and movies that make me laugh. My Fish Out of Water series from Entangled Publishing deals with heroines thrust outside their comfort zones. Their first meetings with their heroes tend to be quirky.
