Cameron O’Leary, a 4th generation firefighter turned arson investigator, thinks he’s the luckiest man in the world—after a year of sickness in the family, everyone’s finally on the mend, and his life can go back to its even keel. But even though Cameron has moved to Boston to be there for his family, some sort of live-in nurse is still necessary, given the demands of his job.

Erin Crosby is financing her master’s thesis in social work by acting as a home health care nurse. Working for Cameron seems like the perfect gig—low key, plenty of time to work on her thesis, and the patient is lovely. She might never have lived with a man before—she’s never found anyone she cared about that much, had barely even considered it—but Cameron is easy to live with, and an easy friendship blooms between them.

But it gets harder and harder for Cameron to keep his hands off of his charming employee—and for Erin to remember that she hasn’t really moved into Cameron’s life.





I received this book via Netgalley for an honest review.

It’s not often that I don’t really know what to write in a review. After reading this little novella, I don’t have much to say. It’s a nice read, sweet and a quick read, but there’s nothing I truly enjoyed.

While reading this book I kept thinking about other things, letting myself be distracted. Usually, it doesn’t happen if I’m engrossed. I don’t think this novella is bad or that it’s not worth reading, but unfortunately I was expecting a romance way more sizzling.

I wasn’t expecting smut or anything like that, but I was expecting some highs while reading this book. I didn’t have a real in-depth grasp of the characters, the twists aren’t interesting or even worth mentioning as twists, the plot is straightforward and the narration counts ellipses that didn’t help the plot and the relationship between the main characters.

Erin comes across as pretty comfortable in that new home and it clashes a little bit with the way she describes herself at the beginning. Cam is easy to fall for Erin and that isn’t that fascinating to read about, unfortunately.

The writing is flowing well and the secondary characters bring that little something, either a comic relief or some polish to the little world created by the author, and that’s a good thing because otherwise I’m not sure I would have finished reading the novella.

It was nice, but nothing I will remember in a week or two.
