Blurb:  When you find your family, you’ll do anything to keep it.

When Charles Macquarrie inherits a fortune and an international clothing company, he also inherits three young cousins he desperately needs help raising. By a stroke of luck, he discovers and hires Jonathan Lamb, who spent his life in a children’s home due to chronic illness, to be his nanny.

If Jon thought a budding romance with his wealthy boss complicated his life, he has no idea of the hardships awaiting him when he’s charged with embezzlement and kidnapping. But even when threatened by accounting discrepancies and mob connections, Jon and Charles won’t let go of the family they’ve built together without a fight.


Review: Jon is living in the orphanage he grew up in, though he’s now 20 years old, and it’s time for him to move on. The sisters have found him a job as a nanny to a rich businessman whose cousins are now in his care.

Jon is the picture perfect nanny. The kids love him. The adults think he’s magnificent and the uncle can’t stop thinking about him.

In time, the rich uncle, Charles, decides that it’s time to settle down, appreciate the life he’s been given and be more of a family man. Jon is happy to make that happen.


This is a non-sex scene story – so be aware – this is a truly old fashioned look at love and family. There’s a bit of a mystery and the kids are pretty funny.

I’d recommend this book to people who love a lot of children in their story, who love the slow burn and witty banter and for people who always wondered what would happen if the sound of music was done featuring two men. 😉

I thought it was a light, easy read, though I did miss the sex and was a bit frustrated that it took til 80% for our MCs to get together.

Overall Impression: I liked it

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher in return for a fair and honest review.*
