Vera Woods is at her wit’s end.
Her husband has run off with the nanny, leaving Vera with a broken heart, three very angry sons, and even less time to juggle the demands of family and her career. After her boys scare away a sixth replacement nanny, Vera is out of time off from work and desperately out of options. Still nursing an aching heart, she turns to an unlikely source for help―a manny.
Lincoln Scott is no stranger to family chaos. But rather than grow jaded, he has thrown his natural talents into building his own business―providing live-in childcare for families as a manny. The money is great and the perks are a blast, but when his family of six years moves to Germany and their plans to bring him along fall through, Lincoln is suddenly unemployed and aware of how much of himself he’s given to other people’s families.
Brought together by circumstances, Lincoln and Vera’s mutually beneficial business arrangement becomes complicated by the undeniable chemistry they share. Vera needs a manny and Lincoln needs a job, but they both may have found the very thing neither one had realized they needed―a whole lot more.
To an outside observer, Lincoln is the ultimate catch. He is undeniably good looking and seems to have everything that most people want in life. He loves children and thrives while working closely with them; yet there are times that Lincoln feels that something is missing in his life.
Vera has just divorced, which has left her to raise three boys alone. While trying to balance her career she is also now struggling to navigate the destruction left behind by her sleazy ex-husband. Managing all this is one thing, but mending her now broken and betrayed heart is almost more than Vera can handle.
Testing the limits and acting out, her boys have decisively made every nanny put in their direction to flee. So, as Lincoln is set into Vera’s direction as the new “Manny” he may just be the saving grace they have all been looking for.
This book was full of heart and tender moments, along with some emotional realism of what it is like to be a child of divorce. While Lincoln and Vera’s chemistry was instantaneous, they also seemed to be the balm that they were both looking for in one another. I highly recommend this book if you have a soft spot for men who are good with children, as I can guarantee you, Lincoln will have your heart melting.
As Always, Happy Reading!
