He was powerful, older and my boss, a lethal combination.
Job satisfaction has taken on a whole new meaning.
When I lied on my resume, I didn’t expect it to matter.
I mean any child would love me; I was born to be a nanny.
I applied for a position working for a woman, or so I thought.
But Julian Masters is definitely all man…the kind you dream of licking chocolate from.
The first day was bad. The kids were the spawn of the devil and I spied through a window and caught him doing something obscene…. and equally fascinating.
The second day was worse, he caught me snooping in his bathroom cabinet in my skimpy pyjamas and all hell broke loose.
On the third day, I ran over him in a golf cart.
And by day four I had decided that I wanted that chocolate…all of it.
But intelligent, widowed Judges don’t fall for ditzy nannies.
Or do they?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
4.5 out of 5 ‘Conquer your own barriers’ Stars
Whoa whoa whoa. This is the second T.L. Swan book I’ve read. The first was Mr. Stanton which was H-O-T. And this book was different but still had that same level of scorch. I’m beginning to think that T.L. Swan is going to become one of my go-to authors.
So just to recap, the story is about Brielle, who is a mid-twenties Australian signed to to be a nanny in London for twelve months. She doesn’t realize until they meet that the person she is being a nanny for is a mister and not a missus. Mr. Masters is a formidable judge who is widowed for 5 years. He is a no nonsense guy and has strict barriers around himself to protect him from repeating past mistakes. I was super intrigued with Mr. Masters back story and it actually took a while before it was revealed in the book. But after I knew? Well, I could see why he was the way he was. I understood where he was coming from. It was easy for me to sympathize with him. And when I learned Brielle’s back story, I could empathize with her need to try and always fix someone. I, too, have the same infliction and it’s so very difficult to walk away from someone who is broken that you cannot fix; even to your own detriment. Her need to fix and heal was very identifiable.
The story is told in alternating pov (my fav). I was actually surprised in the beginning (almost the first time in his pov I think) because he was sitting in a bar joking with his best friends, Sebastian and Spencer, and was saying how hot he thought his nanny was and how much he wanted to have sex with her. I was surprised because when he interacted with Brielle he gave off no hints to having this train of thought at all. Very strong poker face, Mr. Masters!
I definitely had a difficult time putting this story down as I always wanted to know what happened next. The sex was off the charts amazing and the story line in between was captivating enough that I could never decide where was a good place to stop reading for the moment. The interjection of secondary characters planted tiny seeds on who could possibly get their own story. Spencer? Sebastian? Guess I’ll have to stick around to see who’s next.
