Single father Jack Jones is in dire need of a new nanny. His five year old son Nathan is legally blind, he has twin baby girls arriving in less than two months and the girl currently working for him is leaving at Thanksgiving to go home and continue her higher education. If Mannies Incorporated doesn’t come up with a viable candidate soon, he’s not sure what he’s going to do.
Dan Miller is on the hunt for a new job. He’s had some great placements with Mannies Incorporated, many as manny to multiple birth families to get them over the hump. He even has experience with special needs children, so the job he’s interviewing for looks like it’s right up his alley.
When Dan arrives at Jack’s house, he discovers that this Jack Jones is his Jack Jones, the man he was in love with during college, and who broke up with Dan because Dan wanted children. Will Dan and Jack be able to put the past behind them and work with each other, or will their past keep them from having a future together?
Dan is a “manny” who previously dated Jack when they were in college. They broke up because Jack “didn’t want kids” and now Jack has a blind 6 year old and is expecting twins!
Dan and Jack quickly realize they have unfinished business between them and that taking care of the kids will be a full time job for both of them!
I love the “manny” series because they can be counted upon to be so very sweet. I love men and kids together and really look forward to that blend of the two.
This is a book way centered on the kids and only a little on the men.
I also just couldn’t get past the idea that a single guy would sign up for surrogacy on his own after having a special needs child, nor could I accept that the two (JJ and Dan) didn’t think it would be weird to live together again after having been in a romantic relationship years ago.
There were just a few too many things that brought me out of the story for me to love this very much.
It’s still very sweet and Sean Michael always produces steamy smexy times and fun kid times, but the balance in this was skewed too far to the kid side and not enough to the smexy side.
