Summary

What's sexier than a bad boy? A bad ass man who's got his shit together.

Max Alexander is nearing 35. He's built a successful company, and he's conquered the professional world, but he's never been lucky in love. Focusing so much time on his business and raising his daughter, adulting has come at the expense of his personal life.

His social skills are shit, his patience is shot, and at times, his temper runs hot.

The last thing he has time for is the recently single, too gorgeous for her own good young woman he hires to take care of his little girl. She's a distraction he doesn't need, and besides, there's no way she'd be interested. But you know what they say about assumptions?

CUTE & EASY GOING. BARRY MANILOW OF ROMANCE BOOKS

Any additional comments?

Narration was great and the story was a amenable. It's not one I would listen to more than once because it was such a light easy going listen. If you enjoy sweet love stories without drama, a little dirty sex and a cute kid you will like it. I like a little drama or a lot of drama in my romance stories. Call me crazy. I am looking forward to see what others rate this one. It did past time while I was at work. This is a book that little girls that want to say yes to the dress will love!!! 🤗😍😀😗

Oh, how I LOVE Sabastian York!

Mr. York, you can read the dictionary and I would be wrapped around your every word. The story was good. Of course, being a romance, the story seems cliche and an unlikely scenario but that could be just bc I'm going through a divorce and I'm a Grinch about it.

A beautiful love story

Kendall Ryan makes my heart melt with every line of every book she has ever written and this one is no different. A timeless love story I will read over and over again. Masterfully written.

won't go back for more.

this book lacked in just about every aspect. there was very thin character development and the storyline was rather tacky. I found myself rolling my eyes alot.

House Mate

I was drawn to this book because of the author, who I've read before, and the narrators. The premise is good, but one thing that annoyed me was some of the couple's choices that didn't make sense to ME. This pulled me away from focussing on the story. Now, this was why I didn't find the book great, but that doesn't mean another reader won't.

Whirlwind romance but still delicious!

I really enjoyed this story, just like I have all the other books in this series. It is yet again another whirlwind romance though. I love that the story got right to the point, that this playboy has his world turned upside down within the first few pages. But I do also wish that there was more development for the characters. He goes from being this single, player with commitment issues to discovering he has a baby and falling for the nanny and wanting to fully commit to her all within a single month, or maybe technically less considering how he was obsessed with her almost immediately. I can understand that his life changed so drastically that maybe it shocked him into changing his ways, but I also think that a guy that has commitment issues isn't going to make such a turnaround in that kind of timeframe lol. But I still loved the story, don't get me wrong, the story is definitely worth reading! The baby is adorable, the nanny is amazing with like the worst ex-boyfriend experience imaginable, and the hero is sexy and levelheaded. Also, like the other books, I did feel this was a bit anticlimactic since there was an issue and it was immediately dealt with, and then there was another issue and it was immediately dealt with...like the climax moments were over within a few turns of the pages, and that always has its pros and cons. I wish we would have seen the hero deal with the "problems" and take actions towards those he needed to, but at least he didn't let anybody get in his way or sway his decisions I suppose. I still loved the overall concept of this story though! Ah, the narrators...I seriously need to create a blog to just talk about the amazingness that is Sebastian York. Or just have my thoughts on him saved somewhere for easy copy/paste action lol. I truly love Sebastian York's performances in all that I have listened to. Ava Erickson is also phenomenal and I love her voicing for the male side of things too. I am pretty sure that these two narrators are ones I have listened to the most out of all the narrators out there. I absolutely love them!
