Michelle Carter has been down on her luck since the day she was born. So it comes as no surprise when through a series of unfortunate events, she finds herself jobless, penniless, and practically homeless. In need of a roof over her head, Michelle accepts a job as a nanny and finds it absolutely impossible to resist the sexual magnetism of her handsome, sexy billionaire boss—but resist she must, especially since she’s keeping secrets from him.
Believing that his late wife betrayed him, falling in love again is the last thing Dr. Erik LaCrosse wants to do. But fall, he does, and so hard, he secretly marries the alluring nanny from the wrong side of the tracks. However, when he unearths a horrible secret from Michelle’s past, Erik must choose between his loyalty to a dead woman and the love burning in his heart for one who is very much alive.
This is one of my favorite tropes. It just feels so naughty. The widowed billionaire and his younger, broke nanny. Ms. Ross definitely added several different spins on this story though. Poor Michelle has been through the ringer. She had a very rough childhood after her mother died giving birth to her. If it wasn’t for her brother, she probably wouldn’t have made it. Erik doesn’t want to give Michelle a chance as the nanny, but Precious’ reaction to her seals the deal.
These two fight their attraction for as long as they can, but the chemistry is scorching. They can’t even be in the same room as each other. After reading this book, I immediately went out and bought the second book in the series. I can’t wait to read the third book either. I’m hooked on Granite Falls!
