WANTED: Single dad needs nanny--In more ways than one.
Martin "Brick" Bricker is living the good life. He's playing the sport he loves, has all the women he can handle, and parties like a rock star. At twenty-six, he has no interest in slowing down or taking anything seriously —except hockey, of course.
Then a knock at his door changes everything. Suddenly he's the single father to a five-year-old daughter he didn't know he had, and he's trading his playboy ways for Barbies.
Amelia Stacey struggles to make ends meet and juggles her day-care job with a full load of college classes. When she's offered a temporary, two-week nanny position making more money than she imagines, she jumps at the chance. Before she knows it, she's in over her head, not just with her five-year-old charge but with the girl's hot single father.
Brick always goes after what he wants, and he wants Amelia. Only responsible Amelia doesn't want anything to do with the party boy. Struggling with fatherhood and his unexplainable attraction to his nanny, Brick has to figure out where his daughter and Amelia fit into his life. If they fit at all.
But one thing's for sure: Brick can't block this shot straight to his heart.
Best book I have read in a long time . Made me laugh cry and even get angry but still couldn’t put it down ...
I love Jami Davenport, her books always make me feel good when I'm done reading them. She takes us on a ride that spans many emotions, like this book has. Arrogant, cocky party boy Marty is finally brought down by a little girl, a daughter he never knew existed. Amelia is sweet, beautiful, quick witted & loves kids. She's hired by Marty to look after his daughter until he can make his mom see the need for her to raise his daughter for him. Party boy doesn't want to give up his life but Amelia isn't letting him off the hook. We see Marty grow & fall in love with not 1 female but 2, even though he doesn't know it. We hear about Amelia's tragic past experience & her hidden secret & we hear about little Macy's mother & how much she's recently lost. The journey of healing starts with the smile of 1 little girl & the constant support from a strong willed woman & the love from a man not used to loving anyone but himself. Definitely recommend this book.
