About the Book


Millionaire ad executive Landon Downey has a policy: no romantic relationships allowed. So when he's saddled with his six-year-old nephew for a week, he doesn't think twice about asking Kimber Reynolds to act as live-in nanny. What he doesn't expect is the undeniable attraction to the woman he hasn't seen since they were kids. And not only does she like him back-she suggests they work their way down a list of extracurricular activities in the bedroom. How can he resist?

Kimber wants to prove once and for all that she can love 'em and leave 'em with the best of them. All she has to do is keep her sixteen-year crush on Landon out of the equation. No problem . . . until she realizes she may not be the only one whose heart has gotten completely tangled up in their no-strings agreement.

Here's what I'm giving it:

Rating: 4 stars

Here's why:

I've been on a romance kick lately and reading books in the genre has been an interesting experience in variety. Some books I've enjoyed more than others and, since I'm venturing outside of just the paranormal/urban fantasy sub-genres of romance, I've found great little gems.

This story is one of them. Landon and Kimber are two very real and very vulnerable characters for different reasons. What they do have in common are pasts that continuously haunt their present and makes them both guarded and unsure of their futures.

Watching the two of them work through various small (and some major) issues kept me glued to this book which I finished in one sitting. I like this author and will gladly read other books in the "Love in the Balance" series.

Would I recommend? Yes!
