All I ever wanted was family. But one mistake cost me everything I’ve
ever worked for.
To get it all back, I’ll have to return home and protect the most stubborn
woman on the face of the planet. To do that effectively, I’ll need to go
undercover as…a Manny.

I didn’t mean to fall for her or the kid. I really should have known better.
When you get this close, it’s easy to get burned.

But I’ll do anything to protect them, even if it costs me everything…again.

 

 

My review:

Neela’s childhood best friend Willa is killed in a car accident, and she leaves her entire estate to her infant daughter, naming Neela her daughter’s guardian. Willa had a sizable fortune and shady connections, leading her lawyer to recommend security for Neela and the baby. Neela grew up with guards, though, and doesn’t want Mayzie to have the same experience so the lawyer hires the security team to pose as nannies for the baby.

Like the Royals United duet, we are back on the Winston Isles in the Caribbean with some familiar faces. Ariel, former Royal Guard, now has her own company and is hiring her agents. Jax is her first hire, recommended by Roone. Their first assignment is for Jax to go undercover as nanny for baby Mayzie and keep her and Neela safe, as well as find out who is trying to hurt them.

This was a good book, but fair warning it is half the story. The second half of the duet releases next month. There is plenty of action in this half, though. Not a lot of relationship progress happens, but lots of foundation is laid. We are left with so many questions, and I am eager to read the conclusion to get all the answers.

Technically this duet is a standalone, even though many of the characters are from past books of Ms Malone’s. What background information is needed is explained very well so a new reader wouldn’t feel lost or like they were missing something. If cliffhangers aren’t your thing, though, I recommend getting both books and reading them back to back when the second is released.

Author Bio
USA Today Bestselling Author, NANA MALONE’s love of all
things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she
borrowed from her cousin on a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana at a precocious
thirteen. She’s been in love with kick butt heroines ever since.
With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner
Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own
characters. Waiting for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana, meantime
works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as
sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.

The books in her series have been on multiple Amazon Kindle

Until that ninja job comes through, you’ll find Nana working
hard on additional books for her series as well as other fun, sassy romances

in the closet reading, she’s acting out scenes for her husband, daughter and
puppy in sunny San Diego.

Magazine columnist Eliza Donovan let her sister sign her up for a dating app which is so not her thing. Chef Murphy Cormac needed a dramatic change, so a big city move leaves him looking for love.

 My review:

Eliza and Murphy are both signed up for a dating app, but first meet when Murphy is picking up a date in Eliza’s building. They keep running into each other around the city, walking their dogs, and other random places. Finally they are matched to each other on the app, but they are both still dating someone else too. Eventually they both have some decisions to make about how they will proceed.

This was a pretty good book. Eliza and her sister have a great relationship, and dogs always make a story better. I appreciated the fact that this wasn’t an instalove story, but a more realistic snapshot of dating life. Murphy in a crises is goals, too. He was exactly what Eliza needed.

Excerpt

Copyright @ 2019 Allie York

“When you signing up? Women love a chef.” My best friend Derek is the back manager of Amore and got me the interview as head chef. Tonight, he gets to be both managers since the front manager called in sick. Sick is code for his new girlfriend is visiting from upstate. Mike gets sick every third Saturday, almost religiously.

Derek nudges me, and I remember that he asked a question, “Sign up?”

“Match Me. It’s where I met Callie. I also met Claire on there,” Derek tips his head at our staff, “Clint is talking to some woman on there too. You need to get out there. Enjoy the finer things the big apple has to offer.” I only roll my eyes. I didn’t come to New York to date. I came to work in a new environment and get some better kitchen experience. One of the female servers watches Derek and I talk, trying to be discreet, but it’s no secret that she’s hot for Derek. Even my player best friend knows better than to mix business and pleasure. Although that may be his only rule when it comes to women. Sharing a bedroom wall with him proves that point.

“I’m not signing up for a dating app.” I watch the crew start to ease toward the door, mentally preparing for our shift.

“Look at it like a hookup app. None of these women want to get married, if they did, they wouldn’t waste time with this shit.” Derek waves his black phone in front of my face, “Since when are you against getting laid?”

“You know I’m not against it, it’s just not my goal in life.” I shrug. Call me old fashioned but I can’t stand our culture sometimes. I’m a commitment guy, not around for hookups.

“You could still make it a priority, or just an option.” Derek leans back against the wall, looking smug with his argument. He has a point. I make enough money to take a girl out and having someone to talk to besides Derek’s dog would be nice. When he’s home, he has a date over, so I have taken over all of Dozer’s care, but that doesn’t mean I want to be the guy who sits at home with the dog. Although, Dozer is a great listener.

“Well…” I begin.

“You are so easy,” Derek shakes his head and taps my phone in my pocket, “Match Me is the app. Put your profession on there as often as possible. Women love a chef. You cook, they reward you for it, I promise.” Derek bumps my shoulder and I start the app download.
