Seeing the truth and falling in love.

Dustin Robbins-Grayson was a surly adolescent when Quinlan Gregory started the nanny gig. After a rocky start, he grew into Quinlan's friend and confidant—and a damned sexy man.

At twenty-one, Dusty sees how Quinlan sacrificed his own life and desires to care for Dusty’s family. He’s ready to claim Quinlan—he's never met a kinder, more capable, more lovable man. Or a lonelier one. Quinlan has spent his life as the stranger on the edge of the photograph, but Dusty wants Quinlan to be the center of his world. First he has to convince Quinlan he’s an adult, their love is real, and Quinlan can be more than a friend and caregiver. Can he show Quin that he deserves to be both a man and a lover, and that in Dusty’s eyes, he’s never been “just the manny?”


I’ve said before these books are sometimes a hit and miss for me. Most are pretty good but what Amy Lane did in this story was beyond amazing. The way it’s structured, the many characters—who not once confused me because each was so clear—and the sweet and sexy romance within a sweet and loving family.

Quinn and Dusty together were perfection! They fit, and they worked, and they had so much freaking chemistry it was hard with all that, not to see them together. I can’t tell you which one was my favorite because they both made me love them for who they were. Dusty and his gruffness that hid a sweet and loving man with a fierce protective streak for those he loved. Quinn with his gentle nature that hid a strong and stern man who would stand up for the kids to anyone and love them like no one’s business.

The secondary characters were freaking great! The kids with their cute names like St. Peter and Princess. Each one had a fully fleshed out personality that was easy to see them for who they were. The scene in the damn lawyer's office had me tearing up, so thank you for that. I loved Mika and Jacob for being the parents Quinn needed even when he couldn’t see the family he had right in front of him.

I’ve never heard a Kenneth Obi audiobook but I was highly impressed, and his voices seemed to fit each character. His inflections and tone gave a like to this book. Every joke and sexy bit, every loving moment and take down, was acted to perfection.

This will definitely be a highly recommended book from me and one I will listen to over and over again.
