"The Nanny Bombshell" [Billionaires and Babies] by Michelle Celmer

My Book Summary : Cooper's (Coop) life has just changed, since his older brother (and only living family member) and his sister-in-law recently died in a serious plane crash he now has custody of the couple's adopted five-month-old twin girls (his nieces). His partying days are numbered but he plans to take on this responsibility as well as he can. Especially since he feels like he owes it to his brother. However, he knows he can't take care of them on his own, so he plans to get a live-in nanny to help him out. He hopes he'll find someone who will just care about the girls more so then his hockey star fame.

But he might get more then he's asking for when it comes to Sierra ...

Sierra has a secret. She is the biological mother to Coop's nieces. Therefore, once she heard about what the deaths of the twins adopted parents she had to make sure they were going to be safe and loved under Coop's care in any way possible, even if that meant leaving her job as a pediatric nurse and becoming her girl's full-time nanny. She would do anything for them.

However, after a week of living under Coop's roof she realizes that he's a good person and loves her girls but will her secret stay a forever or will she be found out??

My Book Review : 2.5 out of 5 stars. I agree with what one of the Goodreads' reviewer said, " doesn't sugarcoat the story by making all the characters perfect. It shows that the characters are imperfect and with flaws." This book is about getting over a loss, protecting the ones you love at all costs, and learning to trust others. I thought this book had a good plot but I got too annoyed with how Sierra kept doubting Coop's motives to her and the twins for at least 3/4s of this book. Because of Sierra's attitude towards Coop, I almost stopped reading the book a few times. However, I wanted to read what happened when Sierra's secret finally came out and I'm glad I did since from that point on it was a good book but then the book was basically over.

This book wasn't one I really got into so I'm not recommending it. However, on Goodreads there are quite a few good reviews for this book so if you read it hopefully you'll like it too.

Book Teaser(s) :
It was that mind-reading thing that he did. So annoying. "To call it 'torment' is an exaggeration. They were just...pranks. And you can't tell me that she didn't deserve it. She's so mean."
"She just quit."
She gasped and slapped a hand over her heart. "She didn't!"
"She did, just now in the kitchen. This is her last day."
"Oh my gosh, Coop. I'm so sorry. I wanted to annoy her, not make her leave. This is all my fault. Do you want me to talk to her? Promise to behave from now on?"
He grinned and shook his head. ~ within Chapter 8
