After Camilla lost her husband Matt 3 years ago she found he had been involved in a ponzi scheme. Losing her house, job and all she moves in with her parents. Desperately seeking a job (she was a school teacher) she applies to a job where she has to sign a NDA before meeting her employer. Calvin Shaw is the starting quarterback for the New York Titans and needs someone to teach his nephew while his sister is in rehab. Their initial meeting does not go very well! I liked Camilla taking a stand.
I really enjoyed this book.
Both Camilla and Calvin have trust issues and their romance is a sloooooowwww burn.
He is grumpy and introvert and she is trying to overcome her fears and face life after the scandal. They do not get intimate until after the 80% mark, to give you an idea how slow burn this is. But so sweet and real. I will absolutely read the next!
Cam DeSantis’ life is a hot, steaming pile. How else would you describe losing your husband, your job, and your money all at once? Desperate times call for desperate measures, so when salvation comes in the form of one intolerable a-hole, who just happens to be the starting quarterback for the vaunted NY Titans, she has no choice but to accept his offer as a live-in nanny slash teacher for his eight year old nephew. Now all she has to do is find a safe place in her mind to hide whenever she feels the need to throat punch him into tomorrow…which is often.
Calvin Shaw has zero interest in women. Wait, wait––let me rephrase that. He loves women, he just doesn’t want anything to do with ‘um. Not since his wife, presently ex-wife, got knocked up by the guy she was cheating on him with. Problem is…there’s one living in his house. And he doesn’t know what’s worse, that he promised to be civil, or that he’s attracted to her.
The protagonist of this stand alone novel has a propensity for profanity and sexual shenanigans. You’ve been warned.
