Publisher's Summary

Starting over and falling in love.

Tino Robbins' sister, Nica, and her husband, Jacob, are expecting their fifth child. Fortunately, Nica's best friend, Taylor Cochran is back in town, released from PT, and in need of a job.

After years in the service, and recovering from grave injury, Taylor has grown a lot from the callow troublemaker he'd been in high school. Now he's hoping for a fresh start with Nica and her family.

Jacob's cousin Brandon lives above the garage and thinks "Taylor the manny" is a bad idea. Taylor might be great at protecting civilians from a zombie apocalypse, but is he any good with kids?

Turns out, Taylor's a natural. As he tries to fit in, using common sense and dry wit, Brandon realizes that Taylor doesn't just love their family - he's desperate to be part of it. And just like that, Brandon wants Taylor to be part of his future.

    "I love this series - sweet, funny, tender"

    I definitely think you need to have read “The Virgin Manny” for this to make a lot of sense. While I suppose there’s enough information for it to be a standalone, really, the first part of the story and all the background is found in the earlier book.

    We met Taylor when he was young and dumb and full of … well, spunk and attitude. ☺
    He didn’t make any friends with the way he was hiding and that sense of self-loathing has lingered. Now he’s a new man with a ton of baggage. It wouldn’t be an Amy story if we didn’t have some baggage, right?

    Well, Brandon has his own issues, but really, he’s quite stable and he’s definitely the rock in this relationship.

    Because the Dreamspun genre really supports this type of plot, our guys get together and fall in love with ridiculous ease. However, there are some really great moments between them and their families. It’s not just “blink and it all goes away.” This story, as compared the “The Virgin” has a lot more steam in it (much appreciated!!) and our MCs have a ton of chemistry.

    I think I like this book better than book 1 because the characters felt more solid to me and the situation, while still a bit predictable, was unique enough and had some very “real life” elements in it that made it feel authentic.

    As always, it was great to revisit the characters from book 1, and I found it fascinating how different Jacob was in this story versus the first book. Besides the passage of time, I think fatherhood absolutely shaped him a lot!

    If I have any problems at all it’s that the initial reaction of Brandon to Taylor never made sense to me – I wasn’t ever quite sure where his anger came from, so I was glad it went away quickly.

    All in all, highly recommended to fans of the author, book 1, sweet but hurt veterans, and stories with kids.


    Audio

    John Solo does another nice job with this. He doesn’t do a lot with any sort of accents or anything but he makes the female voices unique, handles the children’s voices well enough and did a nice job with the emotions and pacing.

    I enjoyed the tone quality of his narration and liked the voice he chose for Taylor.

    This was an enjoyable way to experience this story.
