Can they make trailblazing and homemaking fit, or is love just another gender stereotype?

Audrey broke the glass ceiling.
Reece swapped a blue collar for a pink collar job.
s a single mum by design. Hes a nanny by choice.
She gets passed over for promotion. He struggles to find a job.
She takes a chance on him. He
s worth more than he knows.
s an imbalance of power. Theres an age difference.
s a child whose favourite word is no.
Everything about them being together is unsuitable.
Except for love.

Audrey is a single mom in her thirties.
Mia is her adorable (and very picky when it comes to Nannies) 3-year-old daughter.
Cameron is the Nanny who's leaving and moving to London.
He's a 27-year-old male Nanny.
Everybody is giving him shit about his choice of careers, but he loves it.
And he has lots of experience - professional and private: as a Teenager he raised his four little sisters practicly by himself while his widowed mother had to work long hours to feed them all.

Now Reece wants to be Mia's Nanny.
But Audrey - like most people - is not sure if it's a good idea to hire a male Nanny.
Especially such a good-looking and sexy one! ☺

But little Mia fell in love with him the minute she met him. And since that didn't happen with any of the other female Nannies, and because she feels a bit sorry for poor Reece Audrey hires him.
He's been rejected by the last eleven families and Audrey thinks that is just not fair - not hiring him only because he's a guy!

And even though Audrey is a single mom by choice and Reece is in a relationship with Sky - there is some instant attraction between Nanny and Boss.
But that's only the beginning of the story - and the start of lots of problems...


 NOPE..... I'm not telling you ☺



This was such an amazing & heartbreakingly real stroy.
It was something completely different from all those romances we get to read at the moment.
We have this independent single mom in her thirties and this sexy (only) seven year younger guy who's a nanny!!
I loved the whole idea of it.
But Audrey has lots of problems with letting herself fall for this sexy guy.
It's just not done - a single mum can't fall in love with her nanny and she can't fall in love with a younger man - and soo many things she THINKS she can't or shouldn't do...
All through the book you HOPE that she'll get it in the end - that she knows what an amazing man Reece is and that she gives their future a chance.

And Reece is soooo adorable!!!
The way he is with his sisters and especially how he cares for and about little Mia...

Ugh - I loved it!!!!

The first half of the book was a tiny bit slow for me - nothing really happens - it's all about getting to know everybody and about Audrey telling the world she's a strong and independent woman - hear her roar!
But then - the second part of the book - I JUST LOVED IT!!!
I think I might've cried all the way through to the end!!!

 Of course it wasn't all sad and slow - it's really funny and cute and adorable and sad and moving and sexy and frustrating and suspensy and romantic ... but it's not just a simple romance ...

We get to look into the life of those people - Audrey, Reece, Les, Polly ... - who all had to deal with lots of prejudices about the choices and mistakes they made in their life...
About how society doesn't accept what they decided was the right way to live their lives... Or about how they look and act...

READ IT!!!!!!!

UNSUITABLE was a romantic, adorable, moving and REAL Love Story! About how two unsuitables might have found the one who suits them perfectly!!
You won't be able to not fall in love with Reece and everybody else too!!!

And now please Ainslie - hurry with whatever new thing you're writing about - you always come up with the Surprising and the Unexpected!!!!

I have been travelling around the USA for the past 7 weeks and during my travels I was lucky enough to receive a copy of Unsuitable, and once I started reading it I could not stop.  This is my first review I have written in 2 months and one I have been keen to write for a while.

I am going to put this out there now ever since I first discovered Ainslie Paton, I have loved every single word she has written.  Each and every book she has released is not your average story.

And Unsuitable is no different.  This is a great story of role reversals.  Audrey is the career woman, Reece is so not what she expected when she was interviewing for a nanny.

I loved the vibe between these two right from the beginning.  There is that attraction electricity cracks between them but they are also struggling with the gender roles they should be playing  but arent.

Every woman on the planet, in the universe will fall in love with Reece.  Hell, if she has a pulse of any sort she doesnt stand a chance.

I loved the interaction between Reece and Audreys daughter Mia.  Wiggles time may have made we want to watch Wiggles videos just so I could imagine Reece dancing in my lounge room!!

At times I wanted to shake some sense into Audrey, who always had a reason why she shouldnt start anything with Reece hes the hired help, hes younger, excuses excuses!  I just know that I would have been climbing him like a tree!!!

I loved the secondary characters, especially Les and Polly they are the voices of reason for both Audrey and Reece, all the while having their own troubles and treats.  Les is the kind of woman we all need as our friends, and you cant help but love Polly.

There was a lot of lead up to anything happening with our lovable duo, the anticipation just makes it all so much sweeter.

I ran through the whole range of emotions while reading Unsuitable.  It is happy, funny, sexy, sad.  If you can feel it, you will.

Now I cant wait to see what Ms Paton has in store for us next!
