Publisher's Summary

A retired SEAL is about to face his toughest assignment yet. As a nanny...

Fixer. Bodyguard. Advocate. Brann Calder is expected to play all these roles and more as a member of Torus Intercession, a security firm guaranteed to right what’s wrong. In the military, catastrophe was his specialty. Five months out of the service, Brann is still finding his way, so a new assignment might be just what he needs. Unless it includes two things sure to make a seasoned, battle-trained veteran nervous: life in a small town, and playing caregiver to two little girls. 

Emery Dodd is drowning in the responsibility of single fatherhood. He’s picked up the pieces after losing his wife and is ready to move on now, hopeful that his engagement to a local patriarch’s daughter will not only enrich his community but will grant his daughters some stability, too. 

The only thing standing in Emery’s way is that he can’t seem to keep his eyes - and hands - off the former soldier he’s hired to watch his girls until the wedding. 

Emery’s future is riding on his upcoming nuptials, but being with Brann makes him and his family feel whole again. Too bad there’s no way for them to be together. 

Or is there?

4.5 Stars

Scott R. Smith does another good job bringing all the characters to life and setting an easy listening pace in this contemporary romance with a likeable cast and a very Calmesian plot. 😘

Single POV, with no cheating, plenty of heat later in the story, a bit of a mystery to play out, and a very happy ending. I loved it.

A new narrator for a favorite author

I adore Mary Calmes, I do. And I am a recent new-comer to her books on audible. I really like this one a great deal. The narrator's voice is just how I imagined Brann would sound. Husky with a bit of a perpetual smile. Emery came across very gravely, and not at all what I expected - not that it's a bad thing - just different. The narrator keeps a very good pace with the story and I was never confused as to who was speaking. An enthusiastic thumbs up from me.

Hot ex-Navy Seal action!!!

This audiobook kept coming up in my 'recommended for you' listings that pop up when you first log into Audible. So, I finally decided to check it out. I was not disappointed by this slow burn. Who doesn't love a good nanny to lovers romance. Scott R. Smith's narration was such that I forgot that I was listening to an audiobook. I could actually see the story as he read. The characters were great and Mary Calmes keeps giving us the goods with just enough action and romance with a teeny tiny bit of angst. Perfect combination. So worth a credit.

The Best

This easily Mary Calmes has written.

Worth your attention and time.

Not the formulaic guy meets guy in a coffeehouse and fall instantly in lovethe second chapter and then drones on 22 chapters of fluff.

This is actually balanced and very well constructed story, surprisingly even for Mary.

Scott Smith is stellar

And the fact he’s narrating a book I enjoyed made it a double pleasure. I especially liked how he could change his voice to interject humor into the funny lines written by the author.

Wonderful

I loved it! I was very sastified with the story and developement. Brann bonded and was so sweet to the girls right off the bat. Brann was such a bad ass just making that town his b***h. Emery was such a kind hearted man and I'm happy he made the right decision about Brann. It had some great sexy times. Narration was amazing. Loveeeeed Scott R. Smith voice.
