ONE THE LINE (Milwaukee Dragons #1)

ONE THE LINE                                     LIZ LINCOLN

If you’re Carrie Herron, the answer is all of the above. First Carrie starts exchanging steamy text messages with the sexy single dad she meets in line at the grocery store. Then she lands a job—and a bedroom—as the live-in nanny for the daughter of the Milwaukee Dragons’ newest star. But when Carrie shows up for work and realizes that they’re actually the same guy, she has no choice but to try to keep things professional. After all, Seth Chamberlain is her boss now. Her chiseled, charismatic, oh-so-tempting boss. . . .

After getting traded from Houston to Milwaukee, Seth’s having a tough time keeping his head in the game, let alone setting up his daughter in a brand-new city. So if the only nanny his daughter will tolerate while he’s on the road is the gorgeous, cosplay-loving redhead he’s had his eye on, well, so be it. Surely he can resist Carrie until football season is over. But with her knowing glances and kissable lips driving him wild, Seth must decide whether he’s ready to put everything on the line.


MY REVIEW:
     This was a fun and funny book that seemed to have a lot of awkward and touchy moments.  Carrie Herron is a science teacher.  She has spent all summer putting in applications and going on interviews.
     When she finds out she is losing ground she still needs groceries, to do her laundry at her big brother’s house, and watch their favorite show together she feels pressed for time and disappointed she has no good news to tell him.  So, when she gets ready to pay for her groceries and her wallet isn’t in her purse she wants to cry.
     But the handsome 6’4’’ Thor looking guy behind her in line pays for them along with his super tampons and bananas.  Darn, she says to herself he has a girlfriend.  Oh well, better luck next time.  She thanks him and starts to walk out with him.  When she says to tell his wife something about how lucky she is that he will buy her tampons.  He says, no that they are for his daughter, no wife or girlfriend and it is for her first cycle. 
     She doesn’t mean to but she cringes.  She looks at him and with sheer pain on her face and tells him no in all good faith she can’t let him do that to his daughter.  He tells him he has been nice enough to buy her the groceries that she will do the same.  She says come with me.  She says not only is she a girl but that she is a science teacher of 7-8th graders.  The size of tampons he got her will kill her.  That pads will do her much better and not hurt.  Asked if he has female members of his family that could help her if she needs it?
     He says no that he is new to the area and there is no one.  So, she says would you like my number to give to your daughter if she has any questions or if you do?  He said yes like he needed a lifeline.  He walked her up front and she went on to take her things home.  Then, when she gets to her brothers she gets a text from her landlord that he sold the house they live in.  She has thirty days to move.
     She tells her brother, Jason.  He says his old college friend needs a nanny for his daughter if she’s interested.  Sure at least ask about it she says.  That way if the last school she is holding out for peters out she has a backup.  Well, hello backup.
     It does fall through, she then starts getting sexy texts from ‘grocery dad’, Seth.  All is going well.  Then, things go quiet because they are both busy.  She gets busy.  Her brother gets her the interview.  It’s none other than Seth, ‘grocery dad.’  Better known as Seth Chamberlin the newest trade for the Milwaukee, Dragons.  But also, her sexting ‘grocery daddy.’
     Fun, quick, actions can speak louder than words, but words sure can hurt.  Was she her kept secret?  Or was she his cherished prize all for himself for once?  I give this: 4 stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.
