As soon as we’re alone, the air shifts. Shadows dance across the tabletop. Megan’s jasmine perfume scents the air, and my body temperature rises.
I struggle to remember our conversation yesterday. I remind myself that my child—the same one that occupied the seat next to me a minute ago—is my priority. Over and over, I replay all the reasons why I can’t afford to get off track.
Why I can’t touch Megan Kramer.
My muscles tighten in my stomach and across the back of my neck as I lift my gaze from the tabletop to her.
She grins. It’s simple, but when coupled with the heat in her eyes, there’s nothing sweet about it. “That was fun.”
I hold her gaze, unable to look away.
This is the first day, Chase. Twenty-nine more to go. Don’t blow it already.
I smirk and push away from the table.
I need to put some distance between us before things get really fun.
This nanny makes things hard for her boss.
Chase Marshall is many things:
An attentive single dad
My employer for the next thirty days
He’s also the bane of my existence.
He swears I’m a never-ending headache—the most infuriating woman he’s ever met.
If I’m so irritating, then what’s up with the lingering looks when he thinks I’m not watching?
The seemingly innocent touches while making breakfast?
The smirk that graces his kissable lips after one of our verbal spars after his daughter has gone to bed?
One minute he’s coming to my rescue. The next second he’s complaining about how I fold his work shirts. Fine. Fold them yourself.
It turns out that the only time I don’t get under Chase’s skin is when I’m under him.
And that’s where things get complicated.
From USA Today Bestselling author Adriana Locke comes a grumpy, blue-collar single dad that falls hard for his new nanny. This small-town romance is a standalone novel with tons of heat and even more heart.
Chase is a man who will always put his Kennedy, his 14-year-old daughter, first and every decision he makes is based on how it will affect her. With his mom out of town for a month he has hired a nanny but when she shows up at his door he has serious doubts not only because of his attraction to her but their first meeting didn’t leave a good impression.
Megan is at a crossroads in her life and is uncertain what her future would hold. She can’t believe that her new employer is the same man whose attempt to help her went sideways. Once they move on from their less than amicable beginning it isn’t long before she develops feelings for both father and daughter but will their relationship end when the 30 days do?
This is a heartwarming story about love and family. Megan finds the place she belongs where she least expects it while Chase realizes that life for him and Kennedy is so much more fun when Megan is there. Humor, heat, heart and a great cast of characters make this a story that doesn’t disappoint.
