About this ebook

Vera Woods is at her wit’s end.

Her husband has run off with the nanny, leaving Vera with a broken heart, three very angry sons, and even less time to juggle the demands of family and her career. After her boys scare away a sixth replacement nanny, Vera is out of time off from work and desperately out of options. Still nursing an aching heart, she turns to an unlikely source for help―a manny.

Lincoln Scott is no stranger to family chaos. But rather than grow jaded, he has thrown his natural talents into building his own business―providing live-in childcare for families as a manny. The money is great and the perks are a blast, but when his family of six years moves to Germany and their plans to bring him along fall through, Lincoln is suddenly unemployed and aware of how much of himself he’s given to other people’s families.

Brought together by circumstances, Lincoln and Vera’s mutually beneficial business arrangement becomes complicated by the undeniable chemistry they share. Vera needs a manny and Lincoln needs a job, but they both may have found the very thing neither one had realized they needed―a whole lot more.

Misadventures is a romantic series of spicy standalone novels, each written or co-written by some of the best names in romance. The stories are scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly sexy. They’re the perfect bedside read, a ‘quick blush’ for the reader who loves a page-turning romance.

4 1/2 stars Vera is fresh off a divorce and trying to give her three sons some stability in their new normal. After her sons run off several nannies, her sister suggested she hire a manny. Lincoln is a hot guy who has all the skills and education to deal with young kids and run her household better then her. Linc and Vera hit it off with strong chemistry with a nice tease back and forth for awhile. I adored how the kids opened up to Linc and Vera was so in tune with them. The characters were well developed and had depth in them to carry the plot. Reviewed by: Alex L.

I love the Misadventures set of books but this is by the far the best I have read so far, I was left with one of the biggest book hangovers I have had this year and I really didn’t want this story to end. Lincoln and Vera are the best their story is everything you want in a book, I loved them, I loved the kids, I loved their story and I need more from this family. This book will take you through every emotion you will laugh you will shed a tear and at times you will want to throw your reading device at the wall but in the end you will love this must read love story. Lincoln is the man every woman wants in her life he is kind, caring, he loves kids and he loves Vera and he will do whatever is needed to show her what a wonderful woman and mother she is. Vera is a beautiful strong woman but she has a few insecurities that her ex left her with can Lincoln make her see how amazing she really is... This book was everything I expected and more and really hope my words will encourage you to one click this must read.

Nicole's Book Musings

4.5 Stars This was a hilarious, fun, hot read. There were plenty of moments that had me laughing. There are also grab your heart serious. I really didn't like Vera's ex. He's a real piece of work. I had some flashbacks in my childhood while reading this. I can relate to Vera's boys. Now Lincoln, the manny, he is just yummy. I really loved him. I loved his playfulness with the boys but also teaching them how to be respectful individuals. He's exactly who Vera and her boys need in their lives. That was another big draw for me when it comes to Lincoln the way he treats Vera and how he makes her feel about herself. He's definitely top book boyfriend material. This book is the perfect book if you're looking for something fun, but that also pulls at the heartstrings.

About the author

My name is Toni Aleo and I’m a total dork.  I am a wife, mother of two and a bulldog, and also a hopeless romantic. I am the biggest Shea Weber fan ever, and can be found during hockey season with my nose pressed against the Bridgestone Arena’s glass, watching my Nashville Predators play!  When my nose isn’t pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son’s hockey games, my daughter’s dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, scrapbooking, and reading the latest romance novel. I have a slight Disney and Harry Potter obsession, I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, I might have been a Disney Princess in a past life… probably Belle.… and did I mention I love hockey?
