R E V I E W ➠ The Nanny and the Beefcake by Krista Sandor

(Nanny Love Match #3)


The world knows Erasmus Cress as a British boxing champion and a single dad, but what they don’t know is that he’s also an O thief. Yep, that O. The OMG, don’t stop, please, don’t stop, O.
The infuriating beefcake rendered yoga instructor Libby Lamb an off-balance O-deprived mess with one arrogant glance, which turns out to be an occupational hazard when her job is to remain calm, cool, and collected.
She never expected to become the boxer’s nanny, but she’s got bills to pay and brothers to support. Not to mention, the beefcake’s ripped physique might be the key to reclaiming her O and restoring her inner peace.
Here’s the deal. She’s out of options, and so is he.
He’s training for the fight of his life, and he needs someone to care for his son.
He says he doesn’t do relationships. But when their eyes meet, and the gloves come off, there’s no denying his yang is hot for her yin.
They clash at every turn, but Erasmus soon learns that the fight that matters the most might not be the one in the boxing ring. When it’s all on the line, the true battle will be the fight for Libby’s heart.


Not my first read by the author and I have read the previous books in the series. This one I was excited about and it’s a big boy! In all honestly I don’t think it needed a couple of scenes in the book, they were slow for me so it dragged a bit. Other than that there is a lot of action and scenes happening here, lot’s of side characters and life happening. It’s part for me where the ‘romance’ got lost and I was clinging to that little bit when it was between the H&H. It was still enjoyable to read, took me a couple of full days to read & am looking forward to the next one.

This is a heavy rom-com mixed with enemy-to, friends-to, single dad, alpha hero and very expressive out there heroine. I enjoyed the hero & heroine, each in it’s own. I had a few dislikes to the heroine only because she was heavy on the chi and the yoga, it went a little too much into detail for me on that. Laughed out loud many times in the book. The hero is a boxer who is in need of a nanny, has a chip on his shoulder and is a big man with an even bigger heart. They are paired very well, also the hero’s little son is the sweetest and just everything flowed so well. Even if the romance was missing the sizzle was there and worth the wait! I can’t wait for more in this series and hope to go din my next lifetime I get to have this Hero in real life please. Krista make it happen please & thank you!

R E V I E W ➠ The Nanny and the Hothead by Krista Sandor


Charlotte Ames despises hotheads. You know the type. The growly, perma-scowling bully who blows his top at the slightest inconvenience. And her former boss, Top Chef Mitch Elliott, is the king of all hotheads.
How big of a jerk is he? Big enough to make her hurl a salad at the guy.
Those vegetables didn’t ask to be strewn across the floor. But Mitch deserved it!
Is he devastatingly handsome when he loses his cool? Could his stormy blue eyes, flashing with passion, melt the panties right off a gal? That would be a yes. Still, she can’t stand him. And she’d thought she’d seen the last of the culinary creep.
She was wrong.
On the cusp of eviction and with five bucks to her name, she needs a job.
Enter the exclusive Nanny Match Agency and an opportunity to make some real cash.
Sounds great, right? Wrong again!
The universe has one messed-up sense of humor. When she wakes up after a margarita bender and learns she’s become the hothead’s nanny, life goes topsy-turvy! But when the nanny dust settles, she sees another side of the man. A man who might be more than a hothead. A man who gazes at her with such intensity, she can barely keep from combusting.
Don’t fall for the hotheaded chef.
Her head knows what to do. If only she could convince her heart.
Could this nanny match be the match that changes everything, or will it get too hot in the kitchen for the nanny and the hothead?

Not my first read by the author and not last, I have officially read every single book she has put out and this series is one that you will get hooked on to fast!

This was such a fun book to read, I think I laughed more and swooned and worried…all in one. Krista really brought it with this book but also this series! Mitch was def a hothead and with all the sudden happenings, and him becoming a single parent fast he needs help. In comes Charlotte to the rescue, but she has to bargain a lot more than a babysitting job. The heroine here is actually a aspiring photographer and is hoping to get an in with a company and a job she can call her career. What I love about the heroine is that not only is she good hearted and loved Oscar but she also reaches the hero how to be a family and have a bond with his son. This is a fun, exciting, laugh out loud, romantic, swoony and beautiful story!

Not my first time by the ladies and I also have read the other 2 in the series & LOVEDDDD them, this series is a MUST READ as well as this book #3, SWOON SWOON SWOON!

The hero is a single-dad pro baseball player. When he moved cities and his 2 most adorable children, he is in need of a Nanny, in walks our beautiful down to earth heroine. The heroine comes from money but has always been paving her own path, humble, beautiful and sweet. When a chance happens where she steps in to be the temp Nanny for the hero’s kids, she falls in love with the kids more than when she got to see them at school where she has been a substitute. They together, gah the heroine’s big heart is so damn beautiful and the way she is with his kids. I do also love her feisty sexy side, the hero really steps it up with the SWOON SEXY-ness…yes I made that word up and it now exists!

It had some interesting twist and turns not going to lie, I did not see that going the way it did regarding the hero, I may also have been a little mad at him in the end, luckily he redeems himself but I def would have still held a tiny grudge about his behavior. But I really really enjoyed this read and knew it would be amazing as this series is!

Sports Romance, Single Dad who is SWOONY to the max, Sweet Heroine & Twists, Lies, Truths, Romance & Passion!

R E V I E W ➠ The Nanny and the Nerd by Krista Sandor


Three things NOT to do when nannying for a video gaming mogul (aka the hottest nerd on the planet):

#1 Do not get lost in his dreamy green eyes.
#2 Do not salivate over his rock-hard abs.
#3 No matter what happens, do not fall for his super-nerdy dirty talk!
Penny Fennimore is not winning at life. An aspiring writer with a monster-sized case of writer’s block, she’s got bills to pay and barely a dime to her name.
Enter the exclusive Nanny Match Agency and an opportunity to make bank.
The job: A cushy, live-in nanny position caring for tech billionaire Rowen Gale’s six-year-old niece.
The problem?
Her hot nerd of a boss!
They’re opposites in every way. He’s the king of hi-tech, and she uses a flip phone from 2002. She’s not even sure he’s 100% human. With his muted expression, the man might as well be one of the robots from his video games until their eyes meet, and the attraction meter explodes.
She’s got to put the kibosh on her libido. But the universe doesn’t always play nice.
When Mr. Robot-Bedroom-Eyes goes MIA, she marches up to his fancy-pants video gaming company to give him a piece of her mind—which doesn’t go as planned.
Instead, she spies a video game storyboard. It’s a hot mess, and she can’t help but dive and rewrite it.
Did anyone ask for her opinion? That’s a no!
The positive? She’s writing!
The negative? Her boss needs her to keep it up. Turns out, this video game requires a complete overhaul, and she’s the only one who can give him what he wants.
Now, she’s not only caring for his niece. She’s with him morning, noon, and night.
And that’s where it gets complicated.
When he looks at her, she gets a glimpse of what’s behind his hardened veneer. And being with this man feels right, like the forever kind of right.
Her heart is on the line.
Could this nanny match be the match that changes everything, or will it be game over for the nanny and the nerd?

RELEASE DATE: July 29, 2021

Not my first read by the author and so far I have read all of her books. I am going into this blind and I say that because I have had dislikes in her recent books and so I am a tad bit nervous really not knowing what to expect!

Well what I was expecting, I got a lot more. I will off the bat say that after reading it fully till the end, I realized how much of the gaming real talk I did not understand and well not being a gamer ever in life, it did make me skip a few words and paragraphs because well it’s just I didn’t get it and it didn’t seem appealing to me. Honest review as always here, just stating my feeling on that part. Everything else I FREAKING LOVED, the Heroine who has the sweetest heart and the Hero who is kind of like a robot, no heart no feelings, only business…they went really well together. And even thought each other a few things from themselves. I really loved the hero’s dry humor and seeing him come out a little, and that little was SO BEAUTIFUL all caused by the smart, sassy and beautiful heroine. There is a little niece involved and that child is definitely HIS niece, my heart broke for her but I just adored her role. This is a unique, well written, detailed, sweet, romantic, funny and quirky read!
