Publisher's Summary

After getting swept up in nostalgia and losing herself in a quickly progressing romance, her fantasy falls apart. She is left to raise her precious little girl, Lucia, on her own. The demands of Mia’s work schedule and Lucia’s needs increase, and their lives become increasingly hectic. It is soon clear to Mia that she needs help. Luckily, her life-saving cousin saves the day and brings the mother and daughter a male nanny - their new “manny.”

After losing his high-pressure job on Wall Street, Dominic Roberts wants to follow his dreams to have a family. He’s already one fiancée down, and there are no likely prospects for another. In order to find the family he so desperately wants, he finds himself getting into the manny business. Since he is fully qualified to provide childcare and is eager to leave New York City behind, his sister-in-law is able to land him a job in California working for his first client - the beautiful and intriguing Mia Balducci.

Will Lucia like the new man in her mother's life? Will Mia? And will this new trio discover the happily ever after they all so desperately seek?

Heart warming!

I love it when there is a second chance at finding love. It doesn't have to be with the same person, but that feeling of finally having that special relationship gives me that warm and fuzzy feeling. Jennifer Garcia gave me that as I listened to My Mr. Manny. Mia thought she found her happily ever after with Alex. Having their daughter is the highlight of her life,but as years go on, life changes. Now single, she needs help and hires a nanny... Dominic. With instant chemistry, we want to think this could be it, but is it? This is a sweet story, a little angst and a little girl who steals the show! A feel good romance that brightened my day.

Holly Holt delivers a wonderful performance. Her voice changes from child to adult, male to female is seamless and her pace perfect. I enjoyed her narration of this story.

Happy and predictable

If you’re in a place that you would like to read a predictable book with a happy ending, this is the one for you!

It kind of reads like a very detailed fairy tale. The narration is upbeat, yet monotone... but it was probably hard to put feeling into a book that describes each scene with such relentless description of every conversation and thought.

Overall, a good story that could have been told in half the time.

Second chances are the best

Mia is raising her daughter alone. She has been doing well until now. Her daughter is getting older and wants to do more things, but Mia has to work. Her friend suggests a manny, and the story takes off. I love everything about Dominic. He is not afraid to play dress up with Lucia, he loves hanging out with her. Dominic takes it so slow with Mia. They both have rocky pasts that scarred them and made them trigger shy when it comes to relationships. I love the slow burn. These two truly start out as friends and become lovers. They have the best relationship that so many desire. This is a heartwarming story that will have you laughing out loud.

Holly Holt is an amazing narrator. I enjoy listening to her sweet voice. Ms. Holt can change her tone to separate all the characters and make them easy to follow. Her male voices are smooth and not forced. Ms. Holt brings this book to life. It is a must listen to.

My Mr. Manny

Mia has had a tough go at life and it’s time to start over. She’s not above hard work to get where she needs to be. But being a single parent is definitely not easy. Her friend-suggests a nanny or manny. He seems perfect! And he seems like the missing link to their family. Narrations is easy to listen too.
