Leaving a child, especially a very young one like Chase in this story, with someone else must be one of the hardest things to do for a parent. Whether the carer is a nanny or a babysitter is just a difference of degrees of worry, I think. And when the deceased mother’s parents sue for custody on top of everything else, the situation comes close to a nightmare. That is what Hunter, a successful businessman, has to contend with when his current nanny gets married and he is up the creek, so to speak, without someone to watch over his eighteen-month-old son.

Hunter has already been through quite a bit. He used to party all the time, as did the mother of his son, but where he matured, stopped drinking five years ago, and started a successful business, Chase’s mother remained out of control and died in an accident. Of course her parents blame Hunter…. And thus begins his search for a permanent nanny in the hopes of keeping custody. The other reason is that he doesn’t really like to leave Chase in daycare, but what choice does he have? And even though Terry isn’t what he expected (Hunter has some very prejudiced ideas about what a nanny should be like), he is obviously qualified for the job – and extremely attractive to boot.

In walks Terry. It was supposed to be a one-time babysitting gig when Hunter’s babysitter flaked out without warning, but Chase loves Terry, and with an upcoming degree in childcare and nutrition, Terry knows he could do the job. Not to mention that he likes Hunter, but that is just a bonus. Neither of the men expect the attraction to continue to grow, and when push comes to shove, Terry is the one to decide he wants to stay on despite all the other career choices he has.

If you like stories about unexpected nannies who turn into more, if you enjoy reading about career men who have to figure out how to manage a child as well as a busy job and if you’re looking for a short, fun read with some hot loving, the you will probably like this short story.

This is a cute story of a man who gets what he needs and what he wants all rapped up in one sweet package. What lowered it from a 4 to a 3 for me was all the many little extra threads that it distracted a bit from the main story in my opinion. ( )
