Publisher's Summary

Billionaire. CEO. Single dad. And, apparently, my date to Manhattan's most exclusive ball.

I thought my invitation was a birthday present from my best friend. The dress, the limousine, the red carpet . . . I thought they were meant for me. That was mistake number one.

Then my date arrives, all gleaming cufflinks and tousled hair, steely blue eyes, and a body honed to masculine precision. Arrogant. Charming. Panty-melting. And melt, they do. Hanky-panky with a rich hottie in the back room of the event I'm crashing? Don't mind if I do.

Listen, don't judge me. It's my birthday, remember? Nothing that happens tonight counts in real life. Ha. Right. That's mistake number two.

Because the next morning, I start my new job as the nanny for a high-profile client. And my new boss, the owner of this swanky Manhattan penthouse, and the father of these two adorable hellions? Yup. Mr. Hanky-Panky.

But the biggest mistake of all? Staying with him. Working for him. Letting my guard down, falling for him . . . And crashing. Splat. Oh—then I find out I'm pregnant.

Contains mature themes.

It was just ok….

I tried a new author. And this book had a few new people reading it that I have never heard of before. I did not care for their inflection of emotions. The cadence was OK but I found it easy to be distracted and not want to go back to it. Other books that I listen to I want to shut off the rest of the world work this book in particular I found that it was easy to turn it off or ignore it. Towards the end it got to a point where I didn’t even feel like it was important for me to finish the book. The story was OK but a lot of the details weren’t flushed out well.

Just a good old love story

I would like to say that I really didn’t like the beginning of this and I almost returned it because the first 35 minutes turned me off on the book completely but I helped through. And I’m happy I did what an amazing book definitely will be on my top shelf for a while it didn’t just have a love story but it also had forgiveness, understanding, an acceptance I truly wish this was a longer book and I can’t wait to see what else she has in store. The narration was a little choppy at first but it got better after an hour in.

I would highly recommend this book to anybody who is looking for a slow burn but also looking for something that is not as slow as a slow burn it definitely has Depp and has a great ending also

No redeeming qualities: bad writing, dreadful male narrator

There is something super off-putting about the male narrator’s voice, and it was distracting and hard to focus on the story. The story itself had potential, but was written into the ground. This could have been a concisely written 3-hour novel, but instead it’s drags on and on. The female narrator was annoying in that everything she read in her male voice was a stern command, even if it was not necessarily written to be delivered that way. Lilian Monroe is not an author I’d ever try again after this book. The several duplicate scenes of them sitting on the couch saying “we can’t, we shouldn’t” and then continuing to make out is so tiresome and boring. It shows a complete lack of planning or thinking on the author’s part. Also, “So many lines are being crossed” is said by the characters over and over again, when it’s just the one line: screwing the nanny. And it’s not an original trope. It’s a book that seems to have been written by someone who woke up and decided to write romance novels because they think they have a better understanding of romance than other people and not because of any skill or education in writing. Her characters were under developed, most of the dialogue happened inside their heads and not with each other and the lack of communication was annoying and immature. The author created a lot of drama out of basically nothing, her female character is a complete idiot and makes the worst choice that railroads the whole narrative. The conflict is contrived, and I think “within an inch of its life” was used about 6 times in the 10-hour audiobook. I could have played romance novel bingo with the number of overused phrases in this book: “closed the distance between us” and “I need her more than air.” Also, there are instances where he basically waves a wand over her and she has an orgasm. This book was garbage.

Love the Manhattan Series

Love this series, i actually read the first book and had audible for this book was so excited but the minute I heard the two narrators I was not as pleased. Loved the story but the male narrator turned me off with his awful depiction of the men in the series. Strange accents or valley speak we were not in California. Made them sound slow.
Read the book will be better.

The narrators make or break a story

I sure hope authors pay attention to reviews - we're trying to provide constructive criticism. Even a good story is hard to get thru w terrible narration. Please inform the narrators to just SPEAK NORMALLY ... is this how you'd talk in real life ?? Trying to sound dramatic in every dang word you undermine the story itself, dull the senses over time and make getting thru the story almost painful. Stephen was a bit slow but basically enjoyable - Shaina made this a super tough and challenging listen. I'm now on to the 2nd book - Big Bossy Trouble - (on another venue) and it's even more painful that the first narration wise, Unless there's an update of narrators in the next installment I'll be skipping future books sadly.

I like this type of books but it was lacking action and it was dragged out in certain areas. plus very predictable in certain terns of events.
