Manny for Hire by Denzi Dixon
So, had I read the blurb, I would’ve noticed that Zach, the hero, is not a child care professional, but a construction company owner who thinks he can get the “hot new mom to follow directions too” and is only doing so because he lost a bet.
Had I read the blurb, I would’ve noticed that Ali, the heroine, kept Zach employed and let him be around her child even though, “he couldn’t vacuum to save his life” because “he was great at messing up the sheets.”
But, since I didn’t read the blurb, I went in blind and read on in mute horror as Ali first meets Zach, when he shows up TO WATCH HER CHILD for the first time, and touches her face, saying, “You’re fucking gorgeous.” And when she dismisses him, telling him he’d been inappropriate, he blows her off, repositions his dick (which he calls, “Big John”...more on that later) gives her his “Zach Attack Look” (not even making that up) and tells her “But don’t think this means you and I are done.”
I’m not even sure where to start with all the crap I find wrong with that, but here it goes:
So, long-story-short, I hate the hero, I hate the heroine, and I feel bad for the fictional baby in the story and wish I could call fictional CPS on her behalf because clearly her mother is more interested in getting laid than she is in keeping her baby safe.
And, as God as my witness, I will never ignore a book blurb again…
