Soft-spoken and shy Hannah Fisher is determined to make the man she’s loved her entire life finally see her as a woman. With the help of a makeover, a new mission—Operation Find My Happy—and the convenient forced proximity of a tour bus, she vows to win her best friend Deacon’s heart.
Former bad boy and current fiddle player Deacon Latrell has the world at his fingertips: a new gig with a famous band, plus his best friend on tour as his son’s nanny. Life couldn’t get much sweeter. Now if only he could stop imagining kissing the daylights out of his childhood BFF…
With one friend set on pushing the boundaries and the other afraid to rock the boat, one thing’s for certain—their story would make one heck of a country song.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for review consideration.
This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
It’s funny, rock star romances are so not my thing (usually), but country star romances? I’m all over them. This is especially true when they’re written by Rachel Harris. I love my smutty romances, but I also love the sweeter swoons that Rachel delivers. The Nanny Arrangement is just the latest in a long line of her books that I’ve enjoyed.
Best friends to lovers will always be one of my favorite tropes. There’s something about them that make them total book crack for me. They just seem so real and they’re not without a certain amount of risk. I mean, what happens if the other person doesn’t feel the same? What if things don’t work out? Is it better to have someone in your life as a friend than not at all? SO MANY QUESTIONS. But, I digress. I love them. Hannah and Deacon’s story was no exception. It’s obvious they were special to each other from the very start. They’ve lived (most of) their lives side by side, so it seemed natural to see them as a pair, even if they were just friends in the beginning. It made them ridiculously easy to root for as a couple.
I pretty much dare you to read this book without a giant, goofy smile on your face. It’s friends to lovers romance at its best and it just made me happy. I adored Hannah, thought Deacon was totally swoony and his son Max was too cute for words. I also loved that this wasn’t some typical manwhore musician story. Those have a time and a place, but I was far more in the mood for the story about the guy who was a good man who knows how to keep his pants zipped, so this worked far better for me at the moment. This was a cute, funny and sweet book. It was fairly low on angst and big on swoons. Another hit! I already can’t wait for the next Country Blues book.
“Exactly what part of single dad and fiddle player slash keyboardist do you think warrants panty dropping, Cherry?”
“The best love stories always start with friendship.”
This what what her favorite books always talked about. Kisses that stopped time and heat that burned from the inside out.
Deacon Latrell was off the market. Head over heels in love with Hannah Fischer, the stunning woman so many people looked over, but who shined brighter than anyone he’d ever known. He was hers, and she was his, and that made him the happiest man in Willow Creek.
