Matthew Hansen is the kind of handsome that has grown women whispering behind their hands and giggling like schoolgirls.
Dark, tall and mysterious, he’s a newcomer to our little town. He’s a gritty, grease-covered mechanic, and a single daddy.
Plus he’s looking for a nanny – and I am desperately looking for a job.
Sounds like the perfect deal.
Only he’s a jerk. An uncivilized, hulking brute. Zero manners. Zero interest in making me feel welcome in his home. Downright rude.
But oh so sexy.
And I need the job. I can do this.
One thing is for sure: I can’t fall for the Caveman. No matter how sexy he is. How mysterious. How tortured.
That’s the only rule – and one I’m about to break.
Jo Raven is back to writing moody,broken, sexy bad boys & I love it!
He's been wounded by the twist of fate but he's still hanging on. And don't ask me how I know but I think he's the one for me.
Matt Hanson age 29, AKA Caveman, he's loved and lost, luck certainly hasn't been on his side and now he has two young children to tend to, a new home out of area and a new job to start. He's heartrendingly hopeless, he loves his kids but hasn't a clue what to do. He's tired and grumpy,rude and acts more beast that man.
Matt needs a nanny, he's at his wits end and not coping, he acts like the world is his enemy on the best of days.
18 year old Octavia answers an advertisement for a Nanny, she's looking for work to help out her mother who's a single mother of four.
Octavia's first meeting with Matt isn't much of a meeting at all because Matt slams the door in her face. Octavia reminds him of his dead wife in her teens and that's one less reminder he needs in his life right now when he has run away to another town trying to forget.
Octavia is a mature 18 year old who has helped bring up her siblings being the daughter of a single mum. She see's past Matt's rudeness, see's the crease between his browse as sorrow and dismisses the short answered grunts, Octavia is drawn to Matt and eventually her persistence pays off and she gets the job.
Matt sort of becomes less grumpy as the story progresses but not much. A relationship starts with Octavia and Matt, well when I say relationship it's sex,lots of sex and boy is it hot!
Jo Raven has certainly upped her game with the sexy times since writing Candy boys.
I digress... anyway....
There's more to this plot than Nanny falls for rude caveman boss or rude caveman boss falls for Nanny. There's twists and turns,danger and suspense when Matt begins to get a series of notes stuck to his door with a knife and that sends Mr moody up another notch.
A good read, an enjoyable plot told in dual pov's, hot fan me down scenes and Caveman or maybe I should call him Ice man, does eventually melt, so the story leads to a well deserved hea.
Another good read from Jo Raven.
