~Book Review~ “Misadventures with a Manny” by Toni Aleo

My Review

When Vera’s husband runs off with the nanny leaving her as the primary caregiver for her three boys, she finds herself at her wits end . . . especially as they chase away nanny after nanny.  Out of options, she turns to an unlikely solution – a manny!

Lincoln may have a degree in early childhood education, but he loves being a manny and staying with families long term as their children grow.  But, when the family he has been with for the past six years moves to Germany, he finds unexpectedly himself out of a job and feeling lonely facing the realization f just how much he gives to other people and their families and how little he is left with.

When his best friend and his wife, who happens to be Vera’s brother in law and sister suggests he manny for them, it seems to be the perfect solution to both their problems.  But, from the moment they set eyes on each other, their undeniable chemistry points to this being much more than a simple working relationship. As circumstances bring them closer together than expected, both Vera and Linc find themselves drawn together in very unprofessional ways . . .can it be they are just what the other needs or will taking that leap be the disaster predicted by the friends that brought them together in the first place?

I absolutely adored this book!  I was expecting a light hearted rom com, but was thrilled to get so much more from this book!

Vera really tries to be everything for everybody.  She works hard, she loves her boys more than anything and she refuses to bad mouth her ex no matter what a complete jerk he is.  She’s never been appreciated by a man the way she deserves to be. Her self esteem is in the gutter and she’s just struggling.

Linc is an absolute sweetheart.  He is caring and compassionate and quickly sees just how much Vera and her boys need him.  He’s an amazing role model for the boys and helps ease all of Vera’s burdens, but he wants more.  He finally feels ready to have a family of his own. And, he wants that with Vera.

Both Linc and Vera have some serious insecurity about their relationship with each other.  But, they are so sweet and explosive together and just “fit” one another so dang well! I couldn’t wait for them to figure things out so they could have their happy ever after.

Misadventures with a Manny was really a great read with fabulous dialogue, sweet moments and smokin’ hot stolen moments.  5 stars!

Vera Woods is at her wit’s end.
Her husband has run off with the nanny, leaving Vera with a broken heart, three very angry sons, and even less time to juggle the demands of family and her career. After her boys scare away a sixth replacement nanny, Vera is out of time off from work and desperately out of options. Still nursing an aching heart, she turns to an unlikely source for help―a manny.
Lincoln Scott is no stranger to family chaos. But rather than grow jaded, he has thrown his natural talents into building his own business―providing live-in childcare for families as a manny. The money is great and the perks are a blast, but when his family of six years moves to Germany and their plans to bring him along fall through, Lincoln is suddenly unemployed and aware of how much of himself he’s given to other people’s families.
Brought together by circumstances, Lincoln and Vera’s mutually beneficial business arrangement becomes complicated by the undeniable chemistry they share. Vera needs a manny and Lincoln needs a job, but they both may have found the very thing neither one had realized they needed―a whole lot more.

**** Misadventures is a romantic series of spicy standalone novels, each written or co-written by some of the best names in romance. The stories are scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly sexy. They’re the perfect bedside read, a ‘quick blush’ for the reader who loves a page-turning romance.

About the Author:

My name is Toni Aleo and I’m a total dork.
I am a wife, mother of two and a bulldog, and also a hopeless romantic.
I am the biggest Shea Weber fan ever, and can be found during hockey season with my nose pressed against the Bridgestone Arena’s glass, watching my Nashville Predators play!
When my nose isn’t pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son’s hockey games, my daughter’s dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, scrapbooking, and reading the latest romance novel.
I have a slight Disney and Harry Potter obsession, I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, I might have been a Disney Princess in a past life… probably Belle.
… and did I mention I love hockey?
