About the Book:
Widowed police officer Jason Devlin. Taking care of his baby girl was usually a piece of cake – until his housekeeper quit, leaving Jason desperate enough to hire the first qualified person who rang his doorbell.
Damsel in Destress:
Runaway heiress Katie Smythe. The pampered debutante was about to take on her greatest challenge—her first job…as a nanny.
Jason was thanking his lucky stars that Katie had shown up at his house. She was the perfect nanny for his little girl—and beautiful beyond belief, leading Jason to rethink his single status. But just wait until he discovered who this nick-of-time nanny really was!
In the second installment of the Single Daddy Club, Donna Fasano shares more of Jason’s story with us. In the midst of yet another babysitter crisis, Katie appears at his door. With her reference from a friend at the hospital, and him nearly ready to drop from exhaustion if he doesn’t break his neck on the clutter, he hires her instantly.
What Katie doesn’t know is that Jason’s in laws are the next door neighbors, and they have been badgering younger and capable sitters, and suggesting older women who are not able to keep up with his very active little girl, Gina. What Jason doesn’t know is that Katie is hiding secrets of her own, and she has never been paid for any of the ‘work’ she has done.
Throughout the story, we get to see Jason’s inability to move forward: the combination of his guilt at the death of his wife and his mother in laws constant intrusions, not to mention her harassment of his chosen babysitters. What was more telling was Katie’s realization and pity for the monster that his mother in law had become; showing a great deal of sense and patience while logically attempting to address the misfires in the communication between them. Their attraction was instantaneous, but what drove and fueled their connection was the fact that they were developed as very real people, with real concerns that make mistakes, yet still have good hearts and intentions.
Each title that I read from Donna Fasano becomes my favorite, and this was no exception. Her characters, situations and her ability to incorporate real life family and child issues into her stories will have every parent empathizing and recognizing pieces of themselves. The bonus point is that her happy endings give us all hope for our own, even for the short while we are immersed in worlds of her creation.
I received an eBook copy from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
