Told in dual POVs
My next door neighbor is a single dad. A very, VERY hot single dad.
And he wants me to be his babysitter.
I could use the extra money so that part’s easy. What’s NOT easy is the fact I’ve had a crush on Deacon for years. He never knew, and it never mattered. I was too young then.
But I’m not now.
He looks at me like he wants to rip my clothes straight off. His brother hates me, though–thinks I’m no good, just another woman trying to wreck Deacon’s life. If he catches us together, he’ll probably throw him AND his cute daughter out on the street just to prove a point.
I can’t let that happen.
But after seeing Deacon shirtless… noticing how stiff his whole body gets around me… I’m not sure I can keep resisting.
Or if I even want to.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
“Falling For The Babysitter” by author Penny Wylder.
My Rating: 4 Stars!
What a great book! A super short read. And that cover? Oh. My. God! That cover was amazing…perfect…a total ovaries explosion!
So, I only had this book on my TBR for one day before I read it. I had just finished reading an intense, emotional romance that, unbeknownst to me, ended in the mother of all cliffhangers! That said my Kindle nearly took flight. After I calmed down a bit, I went on my Goodreads account to find something to read that would be short, cheesy, sweet and erotic, to take my mind off that cliffhanger.
I made a perfect choice.
Falling For The Babysitter was an amazing and adorable story. I became engrossed in the book from the first page. It was endearing and sweet. And oh Lord, was the hero, Deacon, sexy, sexy sexy and did I mention…sexy?
This books falls under the premise of older man/younger woman. Remy is 18 and Deacon is 30. I admit I am always a little apprehensive when I delve into an adult erotica novel with an 18 year old heroine who is so much younger than her hero. Needless to say, and thankful, I was NOT creeped out. If I didn’t know Remy’s age before starting this book, I would never have suspected she was so young. Yes, she is sweet and WAS innocent, however Remy was mature for her age.
Remy had crushed on Deacon since she was a child living next store to his house. When he got married and moved away; Remy was devastated. To her surprise and utter joy, Deacon moved back to his old house to temporarily stay with his uptight, controlling brother, Sam.
Not only was Remy delighted that Deacon was back, but he was also divorced.
So what if he had a baby girl? Remy adored babies and was all to happy to accept his offer of a job as babysitter for his adorable baby daughter, Bailey.
Deacon could not believe his eyes when he saw Remy for the first time after being away for a few years. She has matured into a witty, beautiful, mature young woman. Deacon wanted her badly.
“I want her. I want her more than I’ve ever wanted anyone before. I need to claim her. She has to be mine.”
I was giddy with their relationship development. Deacon was protective and possessive. He was dirty talking and demanding. But he was not too OTT like some of the alphas we love to read about. I appreciated his sweet and tender side when interacting with Remy, knowing how inexperienced she was. And he was such a cute daddy to Bailey.
There was a small amount of angst brought to the story by Deacon’s overly opinionated brother, Sam. *Note to Penny Wylder…Sam needs his own story. The man is too uptight and he needs a fitting heroine. Also, I can tell he had a hidden soft side. Just saying. 🙂
Also, Deacon’s ex-wife brought some tension toward the end. However these two situations were easily resolved.
The end of the book was perfect! I understand that the author has an epilogue featuring Deacon and Remy on her website. I will definitely be checking that out. And I will unquestionably be reading more by this author. Sooner rather than later.
