Elementary school teacher Patience’s whole summer changes after a friend of the family needs a babysitter. She doesn’t expect to butt heads or be attracted to the employers sexy head of security, Brodie MacArthur.

This was an enjoyable and cute romance. Patience is a very sweet woman who adores children. When her mother guilts her into canceling her plans for the summer to babysit, love is the last thing on her mind. Patience and Brodie get off to a rocky start but they quickly overcome that issue when Patience gets sick. 

“You’re all I can think about day and night.”

Brodie is a very protective male, which means he is a good bodyguard. He takes his employer Trevor’s security very seriously and now is just as serious about the baby’s security.  I really liked how sweet Brodie was. He instantly steps up when he sees Patience is sick and gets her everything she could need. Brodie is just the sweet, tough man who you know you can always rely on, especially in emergencies. 

Even though this is part of a series, this is a standalone story. Brodie is the brother of Daniel from the first book, Falling for Irish, but reading that book is not necessary. Everything wraps up by the end of this book. Also, Daniel was only briefly mentioned in this book so I never felt like I was missing out for not reading his story. I do want to read the next book though because their sister Sienna sounds like an awesome woman. 

Trigger Warning:

  • References of sexual harassment by an employer
  • death of family members, mentioned
  • Attempted kidnapping 
  • Harassment and threats from another employee
