Publisher's summary

Shane Miller Sleep Diary:  

Went to bed at: Late.
How long it took to fall asleep: Forever. I have insomnia. Duh.
Number of caffeinated beverages you had consumed: Zero. Thanks for advising me to quit!  

My stress level is off the charts.
I can’t sleep right on a normal day, and lately my days are filled with the best kind of chaos.
My ex-wife and husband number two are filming in Poland for three months, so I’m turning down movie parts to focus on the most important role of my life - impossibly charming and somewhat capable young single dad. 

My son won’t stop asking questions.
My daughter won’t brush her teeth unless I sing her showtunes.
Our regular nanny quit.
The only person I could trust to hire as a temp nanny is my best friend’s sister. 

If Mary Poppins and Bill Murray had a baby it would be Willa.
Fresh out of grad school and beautifully weird.
She hates my movies, and my kids adore her.
I couldn’t sleep last night because she wasn’t here.
Turns out I can’t sleep unless she’s in my house now.
Turns out she’s what’s been missing from my life all along.
If my friend had any idea what I want to do to his gorgeous troublemaker of a sister, he would smother me with a pillow. 

The chances of us succeeding as a couple are about as good as that little indie movie that I made being a huge hit.
But it’s a chance I’m going to take.

Loved

This was the perfect book for me to listen to this week. This is my first time reading a book by Kayley Loring and it won’t be the last. Teddy Hamilton and Mackenzie Cartwright do a great job bringing the story to life. This book put me in a good mood while listening to it.

For as long as Willa can remember she has had a crush on Shane. Their first meeting was she was 12 and knew they were meant to be together. Now they are grown, and Shawn is a single dad and he needs help. He is an insomniac and his nanny left him to get married. His twins are so cute. Being their nanny is the perfect temporary job for her while she gets her performer business going.

This was such a fun listen. I highly recommend this book!

Loved this sexy single dad/forbidden rom-com!

I absolutely loved this sexy single dad/forbidden rom-com! Loring has fast become a favorite author, as I fall for her stories that are filled with humor, heart, and sizzling heat! This is about Shane, an actor and single dad who is in dire need of a nanny. He is so patient, and doting on his adorable twins who keep him busy and sleep deprived. His best friend's younger sister is back from France and looking for a job. Willa is a smart, quirky perfumer who has had a crush on Shane since she was young. She connects instantly with his twins, and jumps at the chance to be his temporary live-in nanny while she starts her own perfume line. She is able to help Shane with, not only his twins, but his insomnia as well, with her creative essential oil combinations. I laughed so hard at her inner musing, and how everything relates to smells. She is a wealth of crazy facts and she charmed me just as fast as she charmed Shane, his twins, and his ex. wife. Shane is so down to earth, adorable, caring and funny. He tries to fight his attraction to Willa, to be just friends, but he realizes he has also been intrigued by Willa since their first meet cute. I loved that this romance doesn't have alot of angst, but it does have just enough bedlam to make me completely satisfied. Mackenzie Cartwright and Teddy Hamilton were so perfectly cast to narrate this hilarious and heartwarming romance. They did a great job embodying these characters and setting the stage for all the fun, and passion to come. Both narrators have a wonderful range of voices and expressions that I love to get lost in and make this story pure pleasure!

Hands down this audiobook one of top faves of 2020

What’s not to love about this book, I had loved this book when I read it and listening to it was an experience at a different level . It just made me fall more in love with the story. This has to my favorite Kayley book and it’s a dream team . Kayley writing and Teddy & Mackenzie narration . It’s absolute perfection, you just can’t get better combo than this. I was looking forward to and anxiously waiting for this audiobook from the moment I read the book and it was soooo worth the wait. Teddy and Mackenzie are spot on with their perfect narration and gave life to the story . These are phenomenal narrators . To be honest this audiobook deserves more than 5 stars. Definitely a must listen. Highly recommend reading and listening to this book.

Not a sleeper

Best friends sister romance. Laughs, sleepless nights and Twins. this is a really nice, low angst romance. Perfume making nanny and more sleepless nights. Its Teddy Hamilton!! and Mackenzie Cartwright. As always the narration was spot on, I haven't heard a bad Teddy Hamilton narration yet... I really liked this story and it'll be one I go back to often. Worth the credit and your time to listen.... And the Twins, so cute!!!

Adorable!

Teddy Hamilton, Need I say more?? I thoroughly enjoyed this story. The actor with 2 kids, and the perfumer who becomes their Nanny. It’s cute, funny, sexy and totally Teddy Hamilton doing what he does best.

cute story but..

Cute story but too much descriptive talk about sexual urges, which somehow cheapens what would be a cute story. I understand desires but to so explicitly and graphically describe them cheapens them and is more than I care for. I still liked the story ok but would have liked it more with, well, less unflattering sexual descriptions.

Loads of humor and heart! 5+ stars!

Don't you just love it when you get to re-experience a story you love in a different format and it's even better the second time around? Kayley Loring was one of my favorite author discoveries from last year, and my introduction to her stories was through an audiobook, and I'm so happy that my second listen from her is just as good! I'd originally read Sleeper in December of 2019, and I quite adored it, so when the opportunity to listen to it came along, I jumped right on it. This audiobook is narrated by Teddy Hamilton and Mackenzie Cartwright, the same dynamic duo that narrated my first-ever Loring audio, Back for More, and these two were truly perfectly matched!

Sleeper is a falling-for-your-sibling's-best-friend slash single-parent romance with a Hollywood twist to it. Twenty-eight-year-old actor Shane Miller may have played a wizard when he was younger, but there's no magic potion out there that can help him get enough sleep and take care of his five-year-old twins, Summer and Lucky. His nanny went off to get married, and hiring one isn't all that simple, especially with his ex-wife demanding prior approval from her end. But then his best friend, Nico Todd, recommends his younger sister, twenty-four-year-old Willa, take the nanny position while she concocts original fragrances for her Etsy store. This is the perfect setup for everyone concerned. Now, if only Willa could stop herself from acting on her old teenage crush on her brother's best friend.

I may now be a wee bit addicted to Kayley Loring's audiobooks! Gah! It looks like I'm going to have to tap into my cache of Audible credits if this keeps up so I can get my greedy ears on her back list. Sleeper was an awesome audiobook to listen to, and Teddy Hamilton and Mackenzie Cartwright did justice to the wonderfully hilarious and scintillating story that this author penned. Shane and Willa were the sort of fictional romance couple that you simply can't resist falling in love with, and that love extends to the winsome twosome that was Summer and Lucky. Then there was Nico, Willa's older brother, and while I know his story is next, I can't help but get excited for the audiobook edition of that one as well. If you're looking for a rom-com with lots of heart and humor to it, especially with everything going on in the real world recently, find your perfect with Sleeper. This gets five-plus stars. 🖤

Amazing!

Just listened to this gem for this second time and couldn’t help but write a review. I read/listen to about a book a day and don’t often re-read. I love the “high” you can only get when reading a story the first time. However, this one is a definite exception. I just love Shane and Willa so much. Don’t miss this one! Exceptional narration enhances the experience. 5 stars all around ⭐️
