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. . . .

Friends or More
After a blind date gone wrong, Liv and Chase decide to remain friends. They have nothing in common after all. Chase thinks she's high maintenance and Liv thinks he's too simple. They are exact opposites, not even agreeing on a movie they both like. As friends, they completely "get" each other often commensurating on dates gone wrong. They even celebrate bad dates with movie night, on the couch watching different movies.
When Chase finds himself in need of a nanny for his 5yr old daughter, he asks Liv for help. She agrees, but she's leaving in a month for a job out of state. As time passes, their friendship blossoms into something more. Neither one of them are ready to admit their feelings, until Liv leaves for her job.
If you're looking for a fun, flirty, sweet romance this is the one for you! I loved when Chase and Liv played with his daughter. It was especially funny when she made Liv the "ugly" frog! I enjoyed all the little touches, additions Liv made to Chase's life making them more of a "family". I loved Liv's camping experience too! I read a gifted copy from Netgalley and all opinions stated are my own.
This book is a feel good friends-to-lovers romance that had me laughing out loud while reading about the antics and imagination of Chase’s 5 year old daughter, Katie, who is the light of his life and the star of this entertaining book. Both Chase and Liv have good reasons for staying single so neither one of them has any inkling that living together will have them seeing each other in a whole new light. My favorite part of the story is when Chase drags Liv into the woods for a weekend of camping, hiking and fishing that is endlessly entertaining and illustrates how great these two characters are for each other though they’re the last to realize it. If you enjoy a lighthearted romance with a lot of heart, this is definitely the book for you. I read a complimentary copy through NetGalley and all opinions in my voluntary review are completely my own.
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.
Thanks to the author for providing a copy of this book vIa Cocktails and Books and Netgalley. The opinions expressed are my own.
