Synopsis

All Dr. Sloan Copeland needed was someone to watch her kids. What she found was the man of her dreams… 

After a nasty divorce and a thousand mile move, Dr. Sloan Copeland and her twin daughters are finally getting the hang of their new life in Los Angeles. When their live-in nanny bails with no warning, Sloan is left scrambling to find a competent caretaker to wrangle her smart, sensitive girls. Nothing less will do. 

Enter Rafe Whitcomb. He’s all of those things, not to mention good-natured and one heck of a whiz in the kitchen. He’s also tall, and handsome, and bearded, and ripped, and tatted, wrist to neck. 

It doesn’t take long for the Copelands to invite Rafe into their home. Just as quickly, both Sloan and Rafe find themselves succumbing to a heady mutual attraction, neither of them wants to deny. With every minute they spend under the same roof, this working mom can’t help but wonder if Rafe can handle all her needs… 

My Thoughts

**This stand-alone romance is fluffy. So fluffy. It’s fluff. Low. Angst. Fluff. featuring a large tatted, motorcycle riding ginger man, who bakes a mean bacon quiche and knows exactly how to wrangle clever six-year-olds while making their mom feel loved, loved, loved.** 

The book starts off with single mother Sloan coming home to find out that her live-in nanny has quit, and left her six-year-old twins all alone for hours. Sloan being a surgeon needs a nanny to take care of her girls when she is at work. With the help of friends she was able to find, Rafe Whitcomb. And from the moment they met, there were instant sparks.

Right off the bat, I wanted to just hug Sloan and her girls. Like omg, that was horrible. And I felt so bad for the girls and how insecure it made them feel. I love the girl’s personalities. Avery is so cut-throat and straight to the point and no nonsense, just like her mama. Addison is sweet and shy, and overall more accepting than her twin.

Rafe is an amazing guy. like so freaking amazing, I can’t even deal. He doted on the girls and made sure to stay within the boundaries that Sloan set not only for her daughters but also for herself. He was honest, funny, a great cook, and truly a family man. The way he was with his family and the way spoke about them was amazing.

Sloan is a blunt, honest, and weird Surgeon. I loved how relatable she was. How she never lied or sugarcoated the truth. Like it’s so easy to love her. The love she has for her children was something I loved seeing, them and their well-being was always at the forefront of her mind. The choices she made and the things she did were for them to ensure that they would be alright and not hurt them in the long run. Also, Sloan has amazing friends. Her best friend Xeni was a funny addition that I enjoyed seeing. Xeni was hilarious and kept Sloan from talking her way out of a good thing.

I love that Sloan is so blunt, and Rafe is as well. What I loved so much about it, is that it meant that they both just laid all cards on the table. They both spoke to what they wanted and figured out a way to handle it. I don’t think I’ve seen two people communicate as well as Sloan and Rafe do. They never let things pass without sitting down and talking about how it made them feel and how they should proceed. I especially loved that because Rafe worked for Sloan they talked about how their budding romantic relationship would affect their working relationship. I also enjoyed that they weren’t clingy (even when they wanted to be), this was also something that they talked about.

Also, a problem I have with romances is that sometimes the conflict in it is thrown in there just because. Or the problem is something that can easily be resolved if the two love interests would just communicate with each other. This book doesn’t have that problem, which honestly made me love so much more.

Overall, this book was soft and sweet and had me laughing my butt off and swooning! I totally recommend it if you want a light and sweet romance.
