If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I absolutely refuse to tell a lie no matter the consequences. So don’t ask me a direct question unless you’re prepared for a direct answer—that’s something my SoCal sewing girlfriends have learned the hard way.

But who would have thought my honesty policy would get me fired from my job at the preschool? Or that a desperate—and not to mention devastatingly handsome—single father of one of my (now-former) students would hire me that same day as a nanny for his daughter?

I’m an education professional. How hard can taking care of a four-year-old and her over-stressed, over-worked father be?


My Thoughts

Can we talk about this fun cover? As soon as I saw it I knew I had to read it. Yes, I am totally one of those visual people that judges the book by the cover. I am really trying to get better!  I love that we meet both characters right at the beginning of the book. Molly is such a fun and endearing character. We meet her at the beginning of the book as she is being let go from her job for being too honest with the kids, and although it is sad, it is the best thing for her as we meet Ben who is looking for a nanny for his daughter. 

Oh the love story between them is quite lovely! I love how they relate to each other and both have their quirkiness and awkwardness that makes them relatable. They are both drawn to each other right away but don't act on it for different reasons. You will laugh (out loud at times) at their interactions and swoon a bit! 

I love the group of friends that she has and their hobby! They are the girlfriends that we all want to be with and have in our corner. They all bring something different to the friendship group. I can't wait to read their own stories! 

Sarah Monzon did a great job at introducing this new fun series! She does touch on some current topics to our time which I felt were out of place in the scheme of the story but then again I am one of those people that when I read fiction its to get away from all the current things going on in our world. 

My Rating: 4 Stars/Really Enjoyed it!

Favorite Quotes:

"Was there anything sexier on this planet than a father who adored and doted on and protected his offspring."

"Only God as the infinite potter had been able to put me back together again. The cracks were still visible, if one looked hard enough. But infinite love held me together."

"Trust looked like being able to go to a person with a problem without even thinking about it first."
