Matthew Hansen is the kind of handsome that has grown women whispering behind their hands and giggling like schoolgirls.
Dark, tall and mysterious, he’s a newcomer to our little town. He’s a gritty, grease-covered mechanic, and a single daddy.
Plus he’s looking for a nanny – and I am desperately looking for a job.
Sounds like the perfect deal.
Only he’s a jerk. An uncivilized, hulking brute. Zero manners. Zero interest in making me feel welcome in his home. Downright rude.
But oh so sexy.
And I need the job. I can do this.
One thing is for sure: I can’t fall for the Caveman. No matter how sexy he is. How mysterious. How tortured.
That’s the only rule – and one I’m about to break.
This is a standalone but does have a connection with Zane from the Inked Brotherhood series, where the main character in this, Matt, appears briefly in Zane – this is not necessary to read first, but its a fab series so I recommend you read them anyway!!
Matt has moved to a small town with his two kids, is hotter than hell with a character to match!! He is obnoxious, arrogant and rude. But he needs a nanny for his kids so he can earn the money he needs to keep them afloat as a mechanic in the local garage.
Octavia (aka Tati / Tay) is a 18yr old with a lot on her plate. She needs money to be able to help her family out and is looking to get out and start college, but won’t leave her family. A nanny sounds perfect as she has practically raised her brother and sister herself while her mum worked. But as she turns up to Matt’s house for an interview for the nanny position, he opens the door, looks at her and then slams it in her face saying ‘Hell no’, she realises she might have bitten off more than she can chew!!
This is a fabulous read!! Matt is so broken with grief and despair he doesn’t know which way to turn. But his instant attraction to Octavia sets him on edge even more, he’s not ready for it, not prepared. But danger lurks in the background, and he fears for the safety of his family and this ‘girl’. Some very hot and sexy scenes in here, as Matt’s personality just domineers Octavia, whew hot!!
A dark and emotional read, Matt is very broken and of course Octavia wants nothing more than to fix him, but at what cost. A brilliant read as usual from Jo, though this has turned out to be one of my favorites of hers to date. Highly recommended reading.
