Perfect families don’t always start with perfect ingredients.
Professional nanny Claire Iverson has wiped enough noses, butts and spills to qualify for a PhD in raising kids. She knows a toddler with a potty crisis when she sees one, and it’s clear this child’s impossibly handsome father doesn’t, since he’s sound asleep on the flight to Jackson, Wyoming.
Getting burned by her ex-boyfriend left her gun-shy around men, but when it comes to this beautiful little girl, she has to speak up. Just her luck, it turns out the man she just dressed down is her new boss.
Between his roles as full-time CEO and full-time father, Drake Driscoll is exhausted. If he can seal the next deal at his upcoming holiday house party, he’ll have room to breathe. He never expected for his daughter’s new nanny to take his breath away.
Claire hesitates to accept the warmth that beckons in Drake’s arms. But soon their attraction ignites, pulling them in deeper than either of them expected. Into passion that could weld them forever—or burn them to cinders.
In From The Cold was a very special story. It had a nice romance for the main couple who got to each other in a sweet but bumbling way. That was what hooked me at the beginning, but later on it was the tragic drama, and how together Drake and Claire were, that had me unable to put this story aside for a minute.
Claire and Drake stepped on each other’s toes at first. Oh, the sparks were flying, but they both took a few wrong turns before deciding to mend their fences. I actually liked both of these characters because the author gave them just the perfect flaws to make them seem real to me. There had been bad relationships for them both though, and Claire’s heartache and fear caused her to push Drake away for a while. But he liked her because she was so different from the women of his social circle. Claire liked him for who he was and not just for what he had. He just had a difficult time convincing her to take a chance. Then they were drawn into some tragic drama with a little girl and some of Drake’s messed up friends. All in all though, I felt that it all worked out for the best.
This was a great read. The story was romantic for Drake and Claire, and it all seemed real because of the way they acted. Drake was a billionaire CEO, but he was first a father who got overwhelmed trying to do potty patrol. That made him relatable. It was lighthearted, especially in the beginning. It was suspenseful because all the way through I was absolutely certain that something serious would happen with Yvette. The story just kept flowing along at an easy pace until it happened, and then I thought, well I never saw that coming. Most of all I liked the part with the girls and how that all played out. It made the story for me.
This was a lovely story that I greatly enjoyed !
