Going to keep this short.
I hated this book and those that know me I rarely react so negatively towards a book. But this book oh made me so mad! I’m always game for reading the nanny trope but this was truly awful.
I didn’t like the Hero in the book he is an imbecile, a muppet, a douchecanoe. He has no redeeming qualities and I would have punched him if I had been the heroine. Instead of getting to know his daughter he was trying to get into the nanny’s pants and ignored his daughter. He missed his playboy lifestyle and only at the very end did he see the light.
I went on about conquests he could have, ditched his daughter to go out drinking with his teammates just so that he could be cool. Had women hanging off of him although he was really interested in the heroine.
I didn’t get the heroine. She could have done so much better. It is tragic what happened to her but to put up with this shit. Nah wouldn’t have done it. Macy is the real star of the book. She sure did brighten it up.
Ms. Davenport can write an engaging story but for me it was anything but that. I had constant moments were I rolled my eyes and where I thought that it wasn’t really original and that the book could have been more. This author and I aren’t well suited and it happens. Good luck to all of you that loved this book and the author. I’m just one of very few. Most likely anyway.
