REVIEW: The Nanny by Lana Ferguson

I can't remember which author or writer raved about The Nanny but I'm so glad they did; it's because of their enthusiasm that I decided to check it out and I'm so glad I did. On the surface it's exactly what you think it is: hot nanny + hot single dad = explosive chemistry and eventual hook up. It was so much that and so much more, though. It's the story of Cassie, a student who desperately needs money to finish her last year of school. She's smart and independent and absolutely wonderful with her new charge, Sophie. It's also the story of Aiden, a chef who has newly acquired full custody of his daughter--a daughter who spent the first ten years of her life spending very few days with her dad--and who's trying really hard to be a good dad while not screwing up his career. He's juggling it all and feels like he's dropping all of the balls, until Cassie arrives and helps keep all of the balls in the air. 

It's also the story of vulnerability. Aiden feels really insecure in his ability to parent and needs someone who can not only bolster his spirits as he tries but also kicks him in the butt when he's letting his insecurity get in the way of what he should be doing. Meanwhile, Cassie has some insecurities of her own, thanks to her horrible parents and the humiliation of being stood up by someone she'd grown to feel for...who turns out to be Aiden (see the blurb, I promise I'm not spoiling things). 

Between Cassie's secret, Sophie's aunt who seems to know exactly when to cause problems, and Aiden and Cassie's chemistry, I did not stand a chance. I inhaled The Nanny in hours and was completely satisfied with all aspects--the plot, the building angst, the injection of humor at the most ideal all just worked and I didn't want it to end and am now looking forward to what Lana Ferguson writes next. 



Suddenly unemployed and on the brink of eviction, Cassie Evans is left with two choices: get a new job (and fast) or fire up her long-untouched OnlyFans account. But the job market is terrible, and as for OnlyFans. . . . Well, there are reasons she can’t go back. Just when all hope seems lost, an ad for a live-in nanny position seems like the solution to all her problems. It’s almost too perfect—until she meets her would-be employer.
Aiden Reid, executive chef and DILF extraordinaire, is far from the stuffy single dad Cassie was imagining. He shocks her when he tells her she’s the most qualified applicant he’s met in weeks, practically begging her to take the job. With hands that make her hindbrain howl and eyes that scream sex, the idea of living under the same roof as Aiden feels dangerous, but with no other option, she decides to stay with him and his adorably tenacious daughter, Sophie.
Cassie soon discovers that Aiden is not a stranger at all, but instead someone who is very familiar with her—or at least, her body. Given that he doesn’t remember her, Cassie is faced with what feels like an impossible situation. As their relationship heats to temperatures hotter than any kitchen Aiden has ever worked in, Cassie struggles with telling Aiden the truth, and the more terrifying possibility—losing the best chance at happiness she’s ever had.
