THE MILLIONAIRE AFFAIR -- a summary and opinion

Mmm... I do love a pretty cover.
Do you agree?

Publication date: June 24, 2014

Back of the Book:

Millionaire ad executive Landon Downey has a policy: no romantic relationships allowed. So when he's saddled with his six-year-old nephew for a week, he doesn't think twice about asking Kimber Reynolds to act as live-in nanny. What he doesn't expect is the undeniable attraction to the woman he hasn't seen since they were kids. And not only does she like him back-she suggests they work their way down a list of extracurricular activities in the bedroom. How can he resist?

Kimber wants to prove once and for all that she can love 'em and leave 'em with the best of them. All she has to do is keep her sixteen-year crush on Landon out of the equation. No problem . . . until she realizes she may not be the only one whose heart has gotten completely tangled up in their no-strings agreement.

I unfortunately don't have too much to say about this book. It's not that I didn't like it, it's just that it's before my Kindle app came with multiple highlighting options, and therefore I haven't any red highlights saying, EXCERPT THIS!! And I also only have one note, and 4 regular highlights....

In some cases, the lack of highlights and notes means I didn't like the book and skimmed it. In other cases, it means I was too preoccupied with the book to bother reading for blogging -- I was reading to read.
I like to think that in this case, it's the latter.
I liked Landon's drive and ambition in life. Not really sure that a busy uncle is the correct place for a kid, but Evan was busy and Landon was... well, as available as Landon could be.
Kimber is fun and spunky. I like spunky leading ladies. And she keeps up with Lyon like any supernanny I know. And I put an emphasis on 'super'.
I like that Landon's family is the medling sort and push comments toward Landon about Kimber's old crush which, excuse us all, but it wasn't on Evan but on Landon.
I look forward to re-reading this book once my 'To Do' list winds down. This is definitely a re-read-er.
Buy for your Kindle or your Nook (print copies available, as well!).
