WANTED: Single dad needs nanny–In more ways than one.
Martin “Brick” Bricker is living the good life. He’s playing the sport he loves, has all the women he can handle, and parties like a rock star. At twenty-six, he has no interest in slowing down or taking anything seriously–except hockey, of course.
Then a knock at his door changes everything.Suddenly he’s the single father to a five-year-old daughter he didn’t know he had, and he’s trading his playboy ways for Barbies.
Amelia Stacey struggles to make ends meet and juggles her day-care job with a full load of college classes. When she’s offered a temporary, two-week nanny position making more money than she imagines, she jumps at the chance. Before she knows it, she’s in over her head, not just with her five-year-old charge but with the girl’s hot single father.
Brick always goes after what he wants, and he wants Amelia. Only responsible Amelia doesn’t want anything to do with the party boy. Struggling with fatherhood and his unexplainable attraction to his nanny, Brick has to figure out where his daughter and Amelia fit into his life.If they fit at all.
But one thing’s for sure: Brick can’t block this shot straight to his heart.
This is book 8 in the Seattle Sockeyes Hockey Series. This book can be read as a stand alone, but as always, there is more enjoyment when you know the back history of some of the secondary characters.
I will start by saying that I thought Brick was a complete asshole, and was worried about how the book was going to progress. Brick is the stereotypical playboy who’s purpose at the moment other then hockey was partying with the women and his teammates.
But boy does reality hit him, when a 5 year old little girl is left on his porch stating that he is the father. At this point in the story, I knew it could go two different ways, I was hoping it was going to go one way, but it when to the latter.
Amelia was the saving grace to Brick, I thoroughly enjoyed how she stuck to her guns with him and didn’t feel guilty about putting Brick in his place and forcing him to face reality and see what is in front of him, was not bad, but something to cherish and look forward to.
In the end, I started to warm up to Brick and that is with the help of Amelia and Macy. I am excited to see what happens next to this crazy team. 4 stars for this addition to this series.
