As Boston's most eligible nanny, I'm nurturing, trustworthy, and professional. Until my one-night stand turns out to be my new boss.
Hawks defenseman James Ryan is Boston's most eligible single-dad. He's solemn, gorgeous, and an incredible father. But I'm drawn to him for other reasons.
James's eyes reflect the same grief and hurt I'm drowning in. His twins struggle with the same pain that once destroyed me. Living with the Ryan family and caring for James's twins are both a salve and a curse.
Soon, what made us click one summer night over whiskey is wreaking havoc on our commitment to remain professional. Our friendship blossoms into something more. Something searching, healing, and unbelievably complicated.
Falling in love with Milly and Mason Ryan is easy. Falling in love with their father is something I never saw coming.
If I give my heart to James, will he put it back together? Or will I end up more shattered than I already am?
The Defender is a deeply emotional, single dad romance, with sensitive subject matter.
I couldn’t put this book down I always need to know more.

This book definitely throws a lot at you. There are a lot of emotions to take in. James and Bella are broken people who need to find the person to be put back together again.
James lost the original love of his life when his wife died of cancer. Leaving him with twins to raise on his own. He’s doing the best job that he can with what he has, but sometimes going through the motions of life even becomes too much. So when you connect with someone so quick, why not take advantage of it.
Bella has been through the ringer. Love, loss and pain are what make her spiral with more emotions than she cares to have. She wants a family of her own, so when she starts to nanny for the Ryan’s she falls in love with the kids. But finding out the dad is someone she had let herself feel with might be too much to bear.
These two deserved a happily ever after. They needed to feel whole again. This was a really good book that picked a lot of emotion. I love this series!
