Synopsis

I, Marlow Taylor, need to stop fantasizing about the hot, single dad next door.

Should I have agreed to nanny his cute six year old who loves my dog Waffles? Absolutely not.

But her dad seems to think he can do everything himself. ( no one can)

3 reasons why I absolutely cannot fall for Dylan

1. He’s grumpy and doesn’t seem to like me very much
2.He lives next door – literally next door to my perfect pink house
3. There are no secrets in a small town

I’m an optimistic artist, never living in one place for too long.

He’s a cynical billionaire, trying to raise his kid on his own like a “normal” person.

Since I’m not going to fall for Dylan Stafford, it shouldn’t matter that he shovels my driveway or looks at me like he could devour me.

One kiss later – I, Marlow Taylor, am completely screwed.

Review

If You Give a Single Dad a Nanny is delightful and heartwarming opposite attracts romance that follows story of Dylan Stafford and Marlow Taylor.

I absolutely loved Stafford family ever since I met them in novella of the series that featured the baby of the family Presley and her fake dating romance with her boss Jack. Dylan was broody and intimidating in novella but Lola his daughter was absolute charm which doesn’t change in this book.

If You Give a Single Dad a Nanny takes place a year after the novella. Prologue tells their first meet cute and how Marlow’s cheerful nature and her dog’s chaotic energy clashes with Dylan’s organized life. Fast forward to the present, clashes and banter remains the same but when Lola’s nanny quit, spurred by Dylan’s mother (Johanna)’s meddling nature, Marlow accepts to be Lola’s temporary nanny making it hard for Marlow and Dylan to keep the fortress up around their heart.

I loved the concept of single dad and eccentric artist nanny living next door inevitably falling for each other. There is so much entertainment, small town gossips, amazing cast and family dynamic making, and main character and their clashing personality makes this a perfect opposites attract romance.

+ Marlow’s sunshine, pleasant, kind, and selfless nature shines through book but that doesn’t mean she is meek. I loved her for doing what she love and passionate about despite her childhood and her parents’ detached and downhearted behavior towards her. It hurt to see how that made her insecure and made her fear rejection.

Her love for Lola is heartwarming. Despite her lack of experience with kids, it was amazing how she took responsibility of Lola. I loved how she finally found a home and family she always wanted with Dylan and his family.

+ Dylan is my newest book boyfriend now. Grumpy, broody, neat freak, and control freak but so utterly caring. It was amazing how his non-approachable demeanor changed 180 degree when it came to Lola.

He can cook, he keeps house cleaner than I can, hair braiding, telling bed time stories, taking Lola to art activity class… he is total package! (why these guys don’t exist in real life??) I was goner reading how he took care of Marlow when she was sick. But he too had insecurities, fear of getting hurt again after the way Lola’s mother left them, making him put wall around his heart. It was lovely to see how being around Marlow shattered that wall.

+ I also loved how Dylan’s family took in Marlow. Johanna’s meddling in their romance was endearing and entertaining. Dylan’s brothers’ teasing is hilarious.

+ Slow burn romance crackles with chemistry, banter, hot and sexy scenes. There is Light BDSM scene but that was nothing compared to Ana Huang books. There are plenty adorable lovely moments making the story just as sweet as it is spicy.

– There is not third act break up which is relief but Marlow’s decision regarding her dream job even before talking about it to Dylan and Dylan never discussing about him dating Marlow with Lola is notable minor issue. I wish it was included.

+ End and epilogue tie up the story perfectly making me eagerly anticipating Cash and Everly’s story in next book.

Overall, If You Give a Single Dad a Nanny is an uplifting opposites attract romance with an engaging plot, endearing characters, and a plethora of tropes that all romance readers will love.
