All Dr. Sloan Copeland needed was someone to watch her kids. What she found was the man of her dreams…
After a nasty divorce and a thousand mile move, Dr. Sloan Copeland and her twin daughters are finally getting the hang of their new life in Los Angeles. When their live-in nanny bails with no warning, Sloan is left scrambling to find a competent caretaker to wrangle her smart, sensitive girls. Nothing less will do.
Enter Rafe Whitcomb. He’s all of those things, not to mention good-natured and one heck of a whiz in the kitchen. He’s also tall, and handsome, and bearded, and ripped, and tatted, wrist to neck.
It doesn’t take long for the Copelands to invite Rafe into their home. Just as quickly, both Sloan and Rafe find themselves succumbing to a heady mutual attraction, neither of them wants to deny. With every minute they spend under the same roof, this working mom can’t help but wonder if Rafe can handle all her needs…

I read a few books by Rebekah Weatherspoon last year and enjoyed them – so when this audiobook popped up in my suggested listens, I jumped on it.
I loved that Sloan is a strong, intelligent, educated female lead. I love that Rafe is somehow simultaneously Alpha & respectful/anti-misogynistic/intuitive. Sloan is black and Rafe is white – but the interracial aspect doesn’t overwhelm the story, mostly due to the fact that Rafe’s step-mom & half-sisters are black. So it just is. They’re both super awesome with Sloan’s twin daughters. I like that the kids aren’t this static “prop” that disappear for 90% of the story. They are an integral, regular, & realistic part of the book. However, when Sloan & Rafe are alone – whew! Weatherspoon can write some dirty talking sex scenes. Earbuds in public for this one.
The only conflict is external, and mostly in the form of Sloan’s ex. This would be best enjoyed when you’re looking for lots of sexy times, low angst relationship building, super adorable, opposites attract, these MC’s know how to communicate listen.
This was my first time listening to a narration by Lacy Laurel and I really enjoyed it. She has a great range of emotions and character voices. Definitely adding her to my list of narrators to keep an eye out for.
