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...
When I heard that Brooklyn Skye was going to have a Brazen novel out from Entangled, I was so excited. I enjoyed the first novel of hers that I picked up, Just One Reason, so I was anxious to see what she had in store for this book.
Laurel and Micah don't completely hit it off when they first meet. He's not willing to accept help, and he certainly doesn't want to say why. Somehow she manages to convince him to let her nanny his daughter, Shae. Over the course of this job, Laurel and Micah get to know each other, albeit reluctantly on his end. He has his reasons, and they're absolutely legitimate, but they're still in their way. When they act on their underlying desires, it's only a matter of time before they have to put all their cards on the table to make it any further.
A Moment of Weakness was a steamy ride! I enjoyed how everything played out from start to finish. I'll have to say that Micah's attitude left little to be desired at first, but I warmed up to him as time went on. The romance between him and Laurel was amazing, and the way Laurel and Shae got along was perfection. Can't wait for the next story in the Boston Alibi series!
