She’s his brother’s nanny...and totally off-limits.
In an effort to escape her overprotective mother, Cassie moves to Tampa to decide her future and claim her independence. When she lands a job as a live-in nanny to adorable twin infants, she’s convinced she’s on the right track.
Until she meets her new housemate: Tom. He’s an off-the-charts gorgeous neurologist (are they even allowed to be that sexy?) and also her aunt’s best friend. There are way too many points of contact for them to take the risk...but Cassie can’t help but fantasize what contact with him would feel like.
Tom knows the stakes, but Cassie’s vibrant spirit strikes a chord in his heart and he can’t stay away. But just when they start to think they’re moving in sync, the unthinkable happens. Did taking the risk create a chasm too wide to bridge?

Hockey + Doctors + Romance = One Fantastic Book!
I simply love Robyn Ryan’s books! She’s one of the few authors that can actually make my heart feel like it’s being squeezed when I’m reading a really emotional part. That equates to great writing! Granted, I love hockey romance books, but this one has very little actual hockey in it and it was still absolutely fabulous. I was so happy that Tom got his own story. He isn’t even a hockey player. He’s a neurologist! Bonus...hockey and doctors!
This actually story in this book was great. I had hoped for more on Lauren and Dave, which we did get some of in this book, as Cassie is Lauren’s niece. Cassie made an appearance in the last book “Healthy Scratch”. It’s wonderful how Robyn integrates so many characters from the past books in the series. It makes the individual stories flow so seamlessly.
This storyline was kind of unique in that we get the young standpoint again from Cassie, who’s taking a gap year before college. We haven’t seen this “young” perspective since the first book when Caryn was around that age. And we also get the more settled standpoint from Tom, who already has his career well established. 5-6 years isn’t really much of an age gap, but at that point it can actually feel bigger than it is. Cassie deals with that and all the feelings of insecurity, mistrust and inadequacy that have been thrust upon her by her mother rattling around in her head. She’s looking for an escape and trying to figure out her future and falling in love all at the same time. And all the while dealing with generally feeling inadequate and then she has to deal with tremendous guilt over an accident, not wanting to cause a rift between friends or family. That’s a lot for a 20 year old to contemplate. She’s just overwhelmed at times, but actually handles it pretty darn well. Cassie’s character is so easy to love. Read the book to see how this sweet girl deals with life’s challenges. You won’t regret it! It’s a great read!
