Her Boss by Anne-Marie Meyer
Narrated by Liz Krane
Book Blurb from Goodreads:
She's the nanny. He's the boss. Feelings weren't supposed to get involved.
Joshua Braxton has moved back home to Honey Grove with his son after a heart breaking divorce. Determined to hide out at his parent's house to heal his wounds, he's decided that love is the last thing he needs. Too bad his mom, known as the town's busybody, has a different plan in mind. She not only invites Beth, the girl who grew up across the street and declared her love for him as kids, to dinner, but she also suggests that he hire her as his nanny. All of this wouldn't matter if Beth were still the lanky girl next door instead of the beautiful and mysterious woman she’s become.
Beth Johnson is back home in Honey Grove after losing her job and getting dumped by her longtime boyfriend. When she discovers that her mother has been keeping her cancer a secret, Beth can't help but make her stop a permanent stay. Desperate to find a job, she agrees to Mrs. Braxton's proposal that she nanny Josh's son. If only she could forget her past feelings for Josh then this might be the best option for her. Too bad that's easier said then done.
Feelings start to deepen and both begin to realize that perhaps, fate brought them together. But as Beth's feelings grow, she realizes she can't both respect her mother's wishes of keeping her cancer a secret and let Josh into her life like she so desperately wants to. With their past hurt lingering on their minds, both are left to decide if love is worth fighting for or if being together just isn’t in the cards for them.
This is the first one in the Braxton Brothers series. This is also my first read by Anne-Marie Meyers.
The narratoration was very well done. She brought the story alive by changing her inflection based on which POV she was reading. Her voice was easy to listen to and drew me into the story.
The story was a very sweet romance about a girl in love with the boy next door. Fast forward several years, when she came home after being dumped by her fiance just to find Josh also came home due to a nasty divorce. they go through the awkwardness of becoming reacquainted. Plus, Josh has an adorable little boy that provided the glue for the story. The story moved right along until the secret Beth kept from him threatened to destroy their fragile relationship.
It was definitely a sweet feel-good story with a HEA. Thank you to the author for this audiobook. I am going to look for the next ones on Kindle Unlimited.
