To be quite frank, I almost passed this one up due to the cover. Don’t get me wrong, those abs are amazing. But who rolls their shirt up and then stands like that? It instantly made me laugh, then think the main character was going to be a douche. It kept popping up for me though, so I finally decided I should at least read the description. I was sold!
The beginning, how Seth and Carrie first meet, is awkward and sweet all at the same time. Of course, once you find out Carrie’s brother knows someone who needs a nanny you can figure out what will happen. But no matter how Carrie and Seth feel about mixing business and pleasure, their chemistry is just too much to deny.
I always love a geeky girl, and Carrie fits the bill. She’s into comic books and graphic novels and superheroes. She even holds panels at various Cons. It’s great! Instead of big, bad, jock Seth ever finding it odd he is always fully supportive. It helps that his daughter likes the same things, but he truly seems interested in what Carrie does.
Seth is really a great guy (definitely not the type to pose for the cover of this book!) and a wonderful dad. He’s not perfect, but what parent is? He really does the best he can and is just trying to hold it all together with a surly tween girl at home. There are just some things a young lady doesn’t want to talk to her dad about. It’s hard for Seth to see his daughter growing up and distant from him.
Liz Lincoln is a new-to-me author that I will be checking out again for sure.
