They thought they were wrong for each other. That was before she moved in. . . .
Chase: Take it from me, never hire your best friend to be your live-in nanny. Because it’s a lot easier to be friends with a woman who isn’t prancing around your house in yoga pants. As a newly full-time dad, I needed help fast. I knew she was good with kids. And I thought things between us were strictly platonic. Now, with Olivia Stratten crashing in my guest room and steaming up the bathroom with the scent of her shampoo, it’s getting harder and harder—no pun intended—to remember all the reasons we’re supposed to be incompatible.
Liv: When Chase Crayton asked me to watch his five-year-old daughter until he could find someone full-time, I was afraid we’d drive each other nuts. But with Chase’s job on the line, I couldn’t say no. What I didn’t anticipate was how combustible our chemistry would be in close quarters. Neither of us did. After all, we first met on a blind date, and by the end of it, we were laughing about how terrible we’d be as a couple. In the two years since, nothing ever happened between us, not even a kiss—not until last night. . . .
Head Over Heels is a standalone novel with no cheating, no cliffhangers, and a satisfying happily ever after. This ebook includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

I discovered this author about six months ago and I am adding all of her books to my TBR. I enjoy her writing that much.
I was really excited to see Jack from Do Over in the beginning of this book but other than that brief appearance, neither he nor Maddie were in the story. I was a little disappointed but Chase and Liv made up for it! I'm a huge sucker for friends to lovers but the take on this was unique. Chase and Liv became friends after a blind date. I feel like that made this a bit of second chance too, which is my other weakness. Chase and Liv really believed they were opposites and I loved how they started to discover that they had way more in common than they ever thought. I am keeping my fingers crossed for Chase and Liv's friends to get their own HEA!!
*This is my voluntary review of an advanced reader copy*
Good friends to lovers story. Interesting how Chase reacted to Olivia on their blind date and that set the tone for their just friends relationship over the years.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley and voluntarily leave this honest review.
This is an entertaining friends to lovers story. Chase and Olivia are good friends and don’t want to ruin their friendship by getting involved romantically with each other. They enjoy hanging out together and usually meet up after dates with other people to compare notes and complain.
Chase and Olivia first meet when they are set up on a blind date. They immediately realize they are all wrong for each other and become good friends instead. They are the exact opposite of each other and they know things could never work between them. Olivia is high maintenance. She loves art museums and chick flicks. Chase is low maintenance. He loves anything involving the outdoors and action flicks. They are each looking for someone who enjoys the same things they do.
Chase has a five year old daughter named Katie. Her mom has recently died and now she is living with Chase full time. Chase and Katie are having a difficult time adjusting to their new life together. He is trying to figure out being a full time dad to a little girl who just lost her mom. Katie is sweet but grieving. Chase needs a nanny and asks Olivia for help until he can find a permanent nanny.
They each have baggage from their past and are afraid to open their hearts. Once Olivia agrees to become Katie’s nanny, the dynamics slowly change between Chase and Olivia and they aren’t sure how to deal with it. I’m not sure why but I had a hard time connecting to the story.
