And it worked. He hired me. Only for me to find out that he left the business.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
The baby of the Bailey family finds her happily ever after with an older man, single dad. Who knew?
Phoenix and Griffin are a great pair. He’s left behind the music scene in L.A. to focus on raising his son. He’s been burned by both his ex-wife and colleagues, and he’s looking forward to living a life out of the spotlight. Meanwhile, for Phoenix’s entire life, all she’s ever wanted was to be a singing star. She thinks that working as Griffin’s nanny will be her ticket back to Hollywood, but when her star does actually begin to rise, it’s at the expense of their romantic relationship.
I really loved how the insecurities/fears of both characters played off of one another. His fears of being used just for his connections, and hers of being abandoned/not good enough/being left behind. They complemented each other beautifully. I also appreciated how involved Maverick was as a character, not just with his dad and Phoenix, but with the Bailey family as a whole. I love that he and G’ma Dori connected like that over video games!
While Confessions Of A Naughty Nanny may be the cliche single dad falls for the nanny story, there’s really so much more to this book. So many layers get peeled back between Phoenix and Griffin, and it reminded me of why I love this series so much.
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
