Book Recommendation – The Billionaire’s Nanny by Elizabeth Maddrey

Book Description:

When I convinced my friends to join me in a scheme to play the stock market, it paid off beyond our expectations. Honestly, most days I don’t even remember that I’m a billionaire. But it was big news for my family. In fact, my cousin made me guardian of her son in the event something happened to her.

At face value, it sounds kind of nice.

But I never really knew my cousin.

And I only found out about her decision a week before the kid showed up on my doorstep.

Thankfully, the woman who brought the boy out to me on the plane is willing to stay and be his nanny.

Since all the local daycares have a waiting list, I don’t have the luxury of being picky. Maybe I have reservations about sharing my home with a beautiful woman, but it’s a completely professional relationship.

She’s going to look after the kid.

I’m going to look after my heart.

Narelle’s Thoughts:

I loved reading The Billionaire’s Nanny, the first book in Elizabeth Maddrey’s Billionaire Next Door series. Scott is a down-to-earth software developer who recently became a billionaire. His new found wealth from his stock market windfall hasn’t really changed his everyday life. He bought a new car, and his mother enjoys giving his money away via his charitable foundation. Scott still goes to work every day and he lives in a small apartment in the Old Town district of Washington DC by the river.

Scott’s mother wasn’t shy about sharing the exciting news about Scott’s billionaire status with her family. Scott’s cousin passes away, and he discovers the cousin he barely knew has named him the guardian of her three year old son, Beckett.

Whitney is a wannabe actor, originally from Kansas, who lives in L.A. Her best friend unexpectedly passes away while Whitney is babysitting her friend’s son, Beckett. Whitney is attached to the little boy, and she’s shocked when she learns Beckett’s billionaire cousin is now his guardian. Whitney convinces the lawyer handling the custody situation to allow her to accompany Beckett on the flight to the East Coast. Whitney’s plan is to try and convince the billionaire cousin to give her custody of Beckett.

Whitney’s plan is turned upside down, and she ends up being employed by Scott as Beckett’s live-in nanny. Scott has the money to make the necessary changes to accomodate Beckett’s needs, including buying a beautiful townhouse and converting the top level into a self-contained studio apartment for Whitney. Beckett is adorable, and I loved seeing him bond with Scott and Whitney.

A sweet friends-to-more romance unfolds as both Scott and Whitney fight their feelings for each other, and try to maintain a strictly professional relationship. Whitney fits into Scott’s world. They both attend the same church, and Whitney makes friends with the girls connected to Scott’s friend group. The propriety of their living arrangements, in the context of their developing romantic relationship, is also addressed in a realistic way in the story. I recommend The Billionaire’s Nanny to contemporary romance readers who like single dad romances with a humble billionaire hero and a relevant faith element in the story.
