Will needs a good, experienced nanny ASAP. His mother-in-law has been helping him with his three small children since his husband died. She’s been a rock, but now she plans on traveling the world with her new boyfriend. Mannie Incorporated comes to the rescue sending nanny Benji for an interview. Benji really needs the job so he’s hoping for a positive outcome. After nailing the interview and securing the job, he immediately falls in love with the children. He also finds himself becoming much too enamored with their father. Keeping things professional is harder than he thought, especially when all he wants is this family as his own.

The second book of Mannies Incorporated, a light-hearted, generally feel-good series that had a great start with the first book. The premise was promising with an engaging beginning. As the story continued, my interest began to wane. The repetitive pacing of the story was disconcerting to say the least. It was way overboard with the kiddie stuff, I started to skim through most of the diaper changing scenes. Will has a medical issue so there’s one particular scene that made me flinch. I think it would be safe for me to say this part of the plot was overwrought anyway. With those criticisms aside, I liked Will and Benji as the main characters and the kids are cute. When the tide began to turn and romance blossomed, the sex scenes reflected their new relationship. Even with those few
negatives it’s still a sweet romance and, for the most part, a likeable read.
