In From the Cold by Meg Adams

Book Description

Perfect families don’t always start with perfect ingredients.

Professional nanny Claire Iverson has wiped enough noses, butts and spills to qualify for a PhD in raising kids. She knows a toddler with a potty crisis when she sees one, and it’s clear this child’s impossibly handsome father doesn’t, since he’s sound asleep on the flight to Jackson, Wyoming.

Getting burned by her ex-boyfriend left her gun-shy around men, but when it comes to this beautiful little girl, she has to speak up. Just her luck, it turns out the man she just dressed down is her new boss.

Between his roles as full-time CEO and full-time father, Drake Driscoll is exhausted. If he can seal the next deal at his upcoming holiday house party, he’ll have room to breathe. He never expected for his daughter’s new nanny to take his breath away.

Claire hesitates to accept the warmth that beckons in Drake’s arms. But soon their attraction ignites, pulling them in deeper than either of them expected. Into passion that could weld them forever—or burn them to cinders.

Product Warnings: Hot chocolate, cozy fires, snowball fights and sizzling ski hut sex = one very merry holiday!

AVAILABLE: November 10, 2015

Claire is on her way to starting over.  After being burned by an ex-boyfriends she is ready to get out of her life-funk.  She's been hired to watch the children of a few attendees at a two-week business meeting/party/function.  On the way, she sees an adorable little girl in the middle of a potty emergency and reems into the little girls father, Drake, about his lack of attention on his daughter and overall lack of parenting.  

Little does she know, that adorable little girl is one of the children she is the nanny for...

Over the next two weeks, Drake and Claire's attraction towards each other ignite in the Wyoming snow.  But life has a way of intruding in their cozy little cabin life and will they trust in their feelings or will they let past experiences break them apart.

Okay, so I had some problems with this book...

I thought that the drama Drake had with Sharon/Miles was a little much throughout the book.  

Next, Claire is almost raped by Miles AND right after (maybe in the same room with a knocked out Miles, not quite sure from the book) has sex with Drake... Idk about you, but I KNOW I'd be a wreck/scared/crying/pissed off hot mess.  My first thought would definitely NOT be "Ok, I'm good to have sex now!! TYSM".  No.

No. No. Noooooo.

There were parts of the book I liked with Claire, Drake, and the girls.  But I found it completely unbelievable that Sharon would request Claire to take Yvette when she was dying... Granted Sharon was a TERRIBLE mother, but come on... she's "known" Claire all of two weeks and her last wish is that Claire and Drake get married and raise her daughter... =/

Rating: 2.5 out of 5
