R E V I E W ➠ The Nanny and the Nerd by Krista Sandor
Three things NOT to do when nannying for a video gaming mogul (aka the hottest nerd on the planet):
#1 Do not get lost in his dreamy green eyes.
#2 Do not salivate over his rock-hard abs.
#3 No matter what happens, do not fall for his super-nerdy dirty talk!
Penny Fennimore is not winning at life. An aspiring writer with a monster-sized case of writer’s block, she’s got bills to pay and barely a dime to her name.
Enter the exclusive Nanny Match Agency and an opportunity to make bank.
The job: A cushy, live-in nanny position caring for tech billionaire Rowen Gale’s six-year-old niece.
Her hot nerd of a boss!
They’re opposites in every way. He’s the king of hi-tech, and she uses a flip phone from 2002. She’s not even sure he’s 100% human. With his muted expression, the man might as well be one of the robots from his video games until their eyes meet, and the attraction meter explodes.
She’s got to put the kibosh on her libido. But the universe doesn’t always play nice.
When Mr. Robot-Bedroom-Eyes goes MIA, she marches up to his fancy-pants video gaming company to give him a piece of her mind—which doesn’t go as planned.
Instead, she spies a video game storyboard. It’s a hot mess, and she can’t help but dive and rewrite it.
Did anyone ask for her opinion? That’s a no!
The positive? She’s writing!
The negative? Her boss needs her to keep it up. Turns out, this video game requires a complete overhaul, and she’s the only one who can give him what he wants.
Now, she’s not only caring for his niece. She’s with him morning, noon, and night.
And that’s where it gets complicated.
When he looks at her, she gets a glimpse of what’s behind his hardened veneer. And being with this man feels right, like the forever kind of right.
Her heart is on the line.
Could this nanny match be the match that changes everything, or will it be game over for the nanny and the nerd?
RELEASE DATE: July 29, 2021
Not my first read by the author and so far I have read all of her books. I am going into this blind and I say that because I have had dislikes in her recent books and so I am a tad bit nervous really not knowing what to expect!
Well what I was expecting, I got a lot more. I will off the bat say that after reading it fully till the end, I realized how much of the gaming real talk I did not understand and well not being a gamer ever in life, it did make me skip a few words and paragraphs because well it’s just I didn’t get it and it didn’t seem appealing to me. Honest review as always here, just stating my feeling on that part. Everything else I FREAKING LOVED, the Heroine who has the sweetest heart and the Hero who is kind of like a robot, no heart no feelings, only business…they went really well together. And even thought each other a few things from themselves. I really loved the hero’s dry humor and seeing him come out a little, and that little was SO BEAUTIFUL all caused by the smart, sassy and beautiful heroine. There is a little niece involved and that child is definitely HIS niece, my heart broke for her but I just adored her role. This is a unique, well written, detailed, sweet, romantic, funny and quirky read!
