Review: Misadventures with a Manny by Toni AleoMisadventures with a Manny (Misadventures, #16) by Toni Aleo


Vera Woods is at her wit’s end.

Her husband has run off with the nanny, leaving Vera with a broken heart, three very angry sons, and even less time to juggle the demands of family and her career. After her boys scare away a sixth replacement nanny, Vera is out of time off from work and desperately out of options. Still nursing an aching heart, she turns to an unlikely source for help―a manny.

Lincoln Scott is no stranger to family chaos. But rather than grow jaded, he has thrown his natural talents into building his own business―providing live-in childcare for families as a manny. The money is great and the perks are a blast, but when his family of six years moves to Germany and their plans to bring him along fall through, Lincoln is suddenly unemployed and aware of how much of himself he’s given to other people’s families.

Brought together by circumstances, Lincoln and Vera’s mutually beneficial business arrangement becomes complicated by the undeniable chemistry they share. Vera needs a manny and Lincoln needs a job, but they both may have found the very thing neither one had realized they needed―a whole lot more.

****Misadventures is a romantic series of spicy standalone novels, each written or co-written by some of the best names in romance. The stories are scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly sexy. They’re the perfect bedside read, a ‘quick blush’ for the reader who loves a page-turning romance.

In all honesty I have to admit that I am a huge Toni Aleo fan. I absolutely love her Assassins Series. I have read a couple of her non hockey books as well, and adored them. So I was extremely excited to be chosen to review this book. Since I am a fan of Aleo’s I have a certain standard that I hold her too. Misadventures with a Manny definitely met that criteria. It was humorous, sexy, and hot just like Aleo has become known for.
Vera feels as though her whole life has come crumbling down on her. She’s losing a part of herself or so it feels like. She has lost her husband to a younger woman, to someone who was closest to her, to someone she trusted her children with, to the nanny. Simon and Vera had been together since high school. You can feel the pain and anger that Vera is experiencing and you can also feel the fight of doing what is best for her children and being the bigger person.
Needing help due to her busy career Vera is looking for someone to help her with the kids. In walks Lincoln and her whole world changes.
Watching a strong woman rediscover herself and rise from the ashes and seeing her find her happiness is breathtaking. I highly suggest this book and any of Aleo’s others. She always writes strong women and panty dropping hot men.
