Rugby star Finn Douglas is just looking for a temporary nanny and housekeeper. Not a girlfriend, and definitely not a wife. He can’t resist Jenna’s cooking, it’s true. Who knew he’d have so much trouble resisting her? He wants to do what’s right for his kids. But waiting is so hard ...

    This book started out so promising, but it went on for way, way too long considering all of the scenes were essentially the same. Also, none of the characters' ages worked for me. The children were wr...
