I can never resist a sexy, brooding man! Meet Micah!
Until her new job starts in September, buttoned-up elementary school teacher Laurel Harris is at loose ends and in need of cash. Fortunately her best friend’s older brother is a single dad and desperately needs a nanny. Or so she’s told. She doesn’t anticipate him being such a menacing, muscled, and undeniably gorgeous man…or that he has zero interest in hiring a nanny.
Micah Crane will do right by his young daughter, no matter the cost. And right now, that cost is juggling parenthood with long hours at his bar and working as an enforcer for a notorious crime boss. He doesn’t need another complication in his life, but the sweet, frustratingly opinionated little blonde hell-bent on caring for his daughter stirs his blood like no woman ever has.
All it takes is a moment of weakness to ignite the lust blazing between them. A moment that will unravel their self-control and unleash all of Micah’s darkest secrets…
Though the “single, brooding dad, and the hot nanny” is a storyline that’s been done many times before, it’s one I undoubtedly love, so A Moment Of Weakness was a book I couldn’t pass up!
I started it on the train one morning, and though I’m not usually much for reading while I’m travelling, I managed to devour 60% of the book during my journey! I really enjoyed both the story and the characters, and I was looking forward to diving back into it.
When I did pick it back up again, I struggled a bit. It didn’t seem as strong as the first half of the book, there were some frankly quite shockingly bad similes used, and there was a very minor twist which was resolved far too quickly.
Thankfully, the final 5% was fantastic! That is what eventually pulled me back in and had me putting the book down with a smile on my face. Overall, A Moment Of Weakness was a book I enjoyed and I look forward to more books from this promising author.
