Review : The Nanny with the Skull Tattoos by Elizabeth Barone


This book had so much potential. It was such a cool concept but was lacking chemistry between characters, details, and more importantly the connection we love in the books. It felt rushed. Also the biggest problem I had with the book was the Leading Male character he was very week and whiny, I mean I understand that he was a young dad struggling to be there for his daughter, go to college and work to provide for his child ( props for that) but come on. Every woman wants a strong man, who is secure, confident and manly.

Single dad Max isn’t looking for love—he only needs someone to help take care of his two-year-old daughter, Chloe. Or so he thinks. After being kicked out of his parents’ house, he’s determined to make it on his own. But juggling a full-time job, an undergrad program, and childcare is pretty much impossible. When his best friend jokingly suggests he post an ad for a live-in nanny on Craigslist, he goes for it. After all, he has nothing to lose… right?

When artist Savannah quickly responds to his ad, Max is thrilled. Her resume is perfect and Chloe seems to like her, despite the slightly menacing tattoos decorating her arm. Savannah brings a light and warmth into his life that he never thought possible. Max hasn’t so much as dated since Chloe was born, but he’s willing to give it a shot with Savannah. There’s just one problem.

Everything is perfect just the way it is. Even his daughter is happy. If he messed up things up with Savannah, how could he ever forgive himself?

3 stars it could have been great ........
