A Moment of Weakness by Brooklyn Skye
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Until her new job starts in September, buttoned-up elementary school teacher Laurel Harris is at loose ends and in need of cash. Fortunately her best friend's older brother is a single dad and desperately needs a nanny. Or so she’s told. She doesn’t anticipate him being such a menacing, muscled, and undeniably gorgeous man…or that he has zero interest in hiring a nanny.
Micah Crane will do right by his young daughter, no matter the cost. And right now, that cost is juggling parenthood with long hours at his bar and working as an enforcer for a notorious crime boss. He doesn’t need another complication in his life, but the sweet, frustratingly opinionated little blonde hell-bent on caring for his daughter stirs his blood like no woman ever has.
All it takes is a moment of weakness to ignite the lust blazing between them. A moment that will unravel their self-control and unleash all of Micah’s darkest secrets...
I was a bit mixed on how many stars I was going to give this book. I didn’t love it so much that I rushed to call my sister about it (that is usually what happens!) However neither did I hate it so much that I would complain about it. It was slightly better than an okay read. Micah Crane has two lives, one where he is the part owner of a bar called The Alibi, and the other where is the he enforcer for a crime boss. He’s stuck enforcing, and can’t get out. Although his life is dangerous Micah wants the better for his daughter, Shae. So he hires is sister’s best friend Laurel as Shae’s live-in nanny. Laurel is great with children and Shae adores her. Soon though Micah begins to feel something for Laurel but his lifestyle could be a problem.
I really liked Micah! He was great because even though he was grumpy and at times an a** he only wanted what was best for his daughter and that means a lot to me. He isn’t the nicest guy to Laurel but he doesn’t deny the attraction between them. Laurel is young, sweet, and wants to change the world. My biggest peeve, I guess you could call it, was the way that Micah handled the crime boss thing. Although as I said it wasn’t a horrible story in fact I cried during the hospital scene when Micah pushed Laurel away.
