Look, but don’t touch.

Alone and broke, Paige Stewart can’t believe her good luck. Who hires a virtual stranger out of a New York City coffee shop to care for their adorable grandson? Apparently Claudia Renaldi does.

Widower Matteo Renaldi isn’t pleased that his mother found a replacement nanny so soon after he fired the last one. Yet little Matty takes to Paige like no other nanny before. And Matteo can’t deny he’s quite taken with her as well. She’s beautiful, sweet, and far, “far” too young for him.

There’s something about the gorgeously sexy Matteo that fills Paige with longing to break through his wall of formality and touch his softer side. But no one knows better than she that crushing on her boss is one thing. Acting on those feelings is forbidden. Foolish.


Warning: Sexy, grumpy Italian hero who is determined to keep his walls up. No matter how much his son’s sweetly beautiful nanny drives him to distraction

Oh boy…

This was good.

OH, this was good!

I really needed something light to read, I’m in a mini reading slump and Temporary Arrangement did the trick!! Some prequels really lack substance, and most times after reading them I can’t help but wish that the author never bother with one. This prequel was fantastic! It had so much substance to it and things moved at a fast pace! I didn’t want it to end! So much happened that I didn’t expect would, and that cliffhanger! Omg, I went on the hunt for the next book in the series. I just had to know how Matteo and Paige would continue to live/work/just be around each other after…after…well you’ll just have to read it! 😀

I see some people have this under the Adult Fiction category, but I personally find it’s better suited under New Adult given Paige’s age. Nonetheless, this was a solid romance novella that had you rooting for the main characters to be together! All I know is I can’t wait to jump into Tempted by Her Boss (The Renaldis, #1) to see what happens next! Also, have any of you read Love, In English? I’m not sure why. But the characters in this book reminded be of the characters in Love, In English by Karina Halle!! Maybe it’s just me, but either way this is a book I recommend to anyone who loves a good plot, series, romance and characters!
