I’m a full-time single dad to three daughters and CFO at Cloverleigh Farms. I don’t have time to fall in love—I’m too busy trying to run a business, keep the red socks out of the white laundry, and get the damn pillowcases on without owing a dollar to the swear jar.
Sure, Frannie Sawyer is beautiful and sweet, but she’s twenty-seven, the boss’s daughter, and my new part-time nanny—which means she’s completely off-limits. It’s bad enough I can’t stop fantasizing about her, what kind of jerk would I be if I acted on the impulse to kiss her?
(Exactly the kind of jerk you’re thinking.)
Actually, I’m worse than that—because I didn’t stop with a kiss, and now I can’t stay away. She makes me feel like myself again. She reminds me what it’s like to want something just for me. She’s everything I ever needed, but nothing I ever imagined.
I’m a former Marine. I should have had the strength to resist her from the start.
But I didn’t. And now I have to choose between the life I want and the life she deserves.
Even if it means giving her up.
This was a sweet book, with sexiness and romance and parts that made me cry too! I’m not normally a fan of older man younger woman romances, since I actually like younger men for myself, but the story was good enough it won me over. I was hooked from the very first chapter with Frannie helping out a bride at the hotel with her dress, and then other parts that happened at the beginning getting me invested in the story And then there was Mac, a former Marine, but it was so cute and sweet the way he handled his three daughters. Or sometimes it could be the way they handled him, had him wrapped around their little fingers.
Now he did the thing about how he couldn’t have a relationship, blah blah blah, because of her age, the thing that does annoy me. But in the end, things worked out for our HEA, and what he went through totally had me in tears as I listened.
For the narrators, I mostly really enjoyed them. But I was getting so annoyed with how the female narrator kept being extremely French with how she said Macaron. It was just sooooooo over the top I was growling every time she said it. But then the male character actually thought to himself about how she was saying it that way and I was amused and got that the author was kind of calling the character out for saying it that way, so while it fit, I had to stop myself from cringing every time. Other than that it was a very good read/listen, and I’ll have to check out the rest of the series when I get some time.
