"Wonderful Character-driven contemporary romance"
Widower Matt Erickson -- and his three children -- needed a
nanny. His requirements: someone steady, staid, and
reliable. Instead, he got Alix St. Germain. She was the
exactly what he didn't want -- or so he thought! His great
plan to make her run backfired, though, leaving him married
to the nanny!
Alix was a drifter -- she had been for years, but she knew
she could never desert Matt and his children. When he
offered her all her dreams on a platter, she jumped for it,
not knowing that secrets from her past were about to be
Outrageous is your typical contemporary romance novel. Matt
is a modern male, Alix a spunky modern heroine. They deal
with modern issues that affect the children and themselves.
The plot and dialogue were okay, but nothing remarkable.
The characterization, however, was wonderful.
Alix and Matt were distinct entities, people you would
almost expect to meet on the street someday. Their
relationship developed slowly enough to be believable, and
the interactions with the children and Matt's family were
very enjoyable. Overall, a good read -- definitely one to
look into if you like contemporary romances.
