The Nanny Arrangement, Rachel Harris
Genre: Romance, Women’s Fiction
I saw the Rock star connection and clicked, well its an Entangled book and I know from past experience I enjoy those. What missed me was its a Bliss imprint, and though I enjoy those, I do find them a little sweet, cute, and short on the drama.
That’s how this book worked for me, great characters, interesting story but very low key, muted dramatics. I was hoping Krista might throw some fireworks in but….
Hannah’s lovely, a very genuine person with a great heart. Like any kid who’s a bit different she was bullied at school, and as I know from experience kids can be cruel and that does affect confidence long term. That’s how it was for Hannah, outwardly she’s fine but inside always waiting for the drop.
She’s been a great friend to Deacon, wanted for a long time to be more but he seems to have her firmly in the friendship zone. Now she’s determined to have one good try at getting his attention instead of always waiting and living with regrets.
Its a fun read, the toddlers are cute, the other band members great and Deke and Hannah? Well its clear they both feel for each other but neither really thinks the other is attracted, there’s lots of inward musings about what if, maybe, can I? Etc.
Deke’s worried about Max too, his little son who adores Hannah, and concerned that if he makes a move and it goes wrong Max will lose Hannah, and he doesn’t want to risk that. there’s times when I just wanted to shriek at each of them “go for it, can’t you see what he/she wants?” but of course that would end the book a lot sooner.
Its an enjoyable read, well written and perfect if you like a sweet, simple romance with a decent backstory. Me? I really like more fireworks, sparks, drama, and sadness I can wallow in.
I enjoyed this but as a one off read, but of course as always what I want isn’t necessarily what you want.
Stars: Three, good story, well written but a bit light for me.
