Cameron O’Leary, a 4th generation firefighter turned arson investigator, thinks he’s the luckiest man in the world—after a year of sickness in the family, everyone’s finally on the mend, and his life can go back to its even keel. But even though Cameron has moved to Boston to be there for his family, some sort of live-in nurse is still necessary, given the demands of his job.
Erin Crosby is financing her master’s thesis in social work by acting as a home health care nurse. Working for Cameron seems like the perfect gig—low key, plenty of time to work on her thesis, and the patient is lovely. She might never have lived with a man before—she’s never found anyone she cared about that much, had barely even considered it—but Cameron is easy to live with, and an easy friendship blooms between them.
But it gets harder and harder for Cameron to keep his hands off of his charming employee—and for Erin to remember that she hasn’t really moved into Cameron’s life.
I must confess that I had fallen out of touch with Robin Kaye’s books. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed them. For this, Robin Kaye, I humbly apologize. I enjoyed this novella so much and it brought me back to when I first started reading her.
Cam O’Leary is an arson investigator who had a very sick little girl. He stepped away from fire fighting into arson investigation so he could have better work hours. This would allow him to be home for her more, since he’s also a single father. He does have a nanny to help him out but she was called away on a family emergency. He now needs someone else to help him look after his daughter, Janie.
Erin Crosby needs some extra cash to help her continue getting her master’s degree. Helping the very attractive Cam O’Leary shouldn’t be a hardship. Erin has a huge heart and it shows throughout this novella. The question is whether these two people who need someone can keep their hands off of each other.
I was hoping this would be a series but I don’t think it is. That’s okay because I am going to get caught up on her backlist. If you haven’t discovered her writing you need to. Her books are very much about falling in love and they make you feel good.
