Review ~ Eight Days a Week by Amber L. Johnson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This story was sweet. We have a guy that hasn’t had responsibility. He’s cruised through life. Well, until he finds he needs a job and answers an ad that has him as a live in babysitter. Cue the lady he works for, a true work-a-holic and sparks fly. Well, eventually they do.
It’s a wonderful story of people growing and learning how to live and be. We watch them struggle and stumble along their way, but we also get to see Andrew do some wonderful stuff.
The characters are fun, likable, and well done. It’s such a feel good story with a wonderful romance. Honestly, if you want a good, easy read with a cast of characters that will make you laugh and cry, and a romance that will sweep you off your feet then give this book a read. You won’t regret it.
Gwen Stone has secrets she’s not ready to reveal. After a recent promotion at work, she needs a caretaker for her children. She’s frenzied and in a lurch and pretty much ready to hire the first person who comes along. So she does.
Andrew Lyons needs to get out of his sister’s apartment, and a Craigslist posting may be the answer to his prayers. But what he thought was an ad for a room rental turns into a job offer he can’t refuse. Accepting the nanny position could change his life, if only he had a clue how to be a grownup.
A working mother, a shirtless manny who looks good in a towel, two children who need more than than a babysitter, and hours of kids’ TV can only spell disaster for everyone involved.
Because a manny should always mind his own business.
And he definitely shouldn’t fall in love with his boss.
