✪ Misadventures With A Manny ✪ Toni Aleo ✪

Vera Woods is at her wit’s end.

Her husband has run off with the nanny, leaving Vera with a broken heart, three very angry sons, and even less time to juggle the demands of family and her career. After her boys scare away a sixth replacement nanny, Vera is out of time off from work and desperately out of options. Still nursing an aching heart, she turns to an unlikely source for help―a manny.

Lincoln Scott is no stranger to family chaos. But rather than grow jaded, he has thrown his natural talents into building his own business―providing live-in childcare for families as a manny. The money is great and the perks are a blast, but when his family of six years moves to Germany and their plans to bring him along fall through, Lincoln is suddenly unemployed and aware of how much of himself he’s given to other people’s families.

Brought together by circumstances, Lincoln and Vera’s mutually beneficial business arrangement becomes complicated by the undeniable chemistry they share. Vera needs a manny and Lincoln needs a job, but they both may have found the very thing neither one had realized they needed―a whole lot more.

ARC received for an honest review

I want a Manny!  I mean, I don't have any kids, but I still want a manny.  Well, this manny anyways!

I was hooked on Misadventures With A Manny from go to woah.  And I mean woah, Lincoln!

I liked that this wasn't the typical workaholic single dad needs a nanny - we get the flip with a workaholic single mum needing a manny!

I love the push/pull between Vera and Lincoln.  I mean, there is sexual tension through the roof with this pair, and it was just a matter of time before things became more.

I mean, I wanted to push them into the bedroom so they would get it on!

Their relationship is complicated, sweet and tender.  It was a lot of  we couldn't, we shouldn't. We can't.  But they did it was wonderful.

Vera's boys are just amazing.  And Lincoln really is a kid whisperer.

I love that Vera isn't some weak woman.  She is strong, she is dedicated to her family, she doesn't take her exes sh!t (and believe me, right from the start there is plenty of cow poo delivered!).  She is  fighter.

This book just had me smiling the whole time I was reading it (well, except when I wanted to slap her ex with my kindle).

I haven't read many of the Misadventures books, and I know I should go back and read more of them in the future.

I can't wait to see what Ms Aleo brings us next.

My name is Toni Aleo and I’m a total dork.
I am a wife, mother of two and a bulldog, and also a hopeless romantic.
I am the biggest Shea Weber fan ever, and can be found during hockey season with my nose pressed against the Bridgestone Arena’s glass, watching my Nashville Predators play!
When my nose isn’t pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son’s hockey games, my daughter’s dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, scrapbooking, and reading the latest romance novel.
I have a slight Disney and Harry Potter obsession, I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, I might have been a Disney Princess in a past life… probably Belle.
… and did I mention I love hockey?
