Overview

Look, but don’t touch…

The Renaldis

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.

Inevitable…

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…

I pre ordered this book and was very unhappy to find this was a prequel. I find this practise to be very misleading and unprofessional. I would hope that an author would be more honest with her readers. I like Ms. Ericksons books, however I do not like her business practises.

I agree with the other reviewers:  I had to wait and pre-order for a 5 chapter cliffhanger?  It would be different if that had been made clear in the description but it was not.  I did like the story so far but I feel totally used that  this information was not disclosed up front.  I am not sure if I will even order the entire book, if it is even available.

There was nothing said that this was a prequal and very short, when I prepaid and preordered this so called book. I have a Kindle also and it is about to become my main e-reader. I love my nook, but crap like this makes me very angry. The rest of the book is expensive. I won't be buying it. This teaser just was not good enough for me to spend more money on it. My recommendation, use your money for a nice night out, it will be better spent and a lot more enjoyable. AD

Pre ordered this book as this is all I got. I'M TIRED OF BOOKS NOT BEING THE WHOLE STORY. Will think twice before buying another one of her books

This book was a complete tease. I felt the author shouldve disclosed what this book really was. Now im cautious when ordering a book from this author. I am surprised and completely disappointed. I dont have extra money around to just buy incomplete books.

Irritating! I agree...how misleading to only put out a half a book and say "More in July!". I doubt seriously I'll ever read another of Karen Erickson's books. I feel duped! :(

FREE teaser for Matteo Renaldi's story This was like the teaser you might find on an authors web site. Fun but too short and a cliff hanger. Will I buy the book? Oh yes. Am I glad this was free? Heck yeah. I'd have been upset if it wasn't.

I agree 100% with many of the reviewers here. I pre-ordered this book like three months before it was due to come out because the synopsis was interesting, but then I get a handful of chapters and what turns out to be a stinking prequel! Why couldn't the synopsis say that? They made it seem like a full length novel, I'm just hoping that this story isn't broken up into like five or six different books as that is something authors are beginning to do now and its really irritating... IF BN IS OFFERING THIS PREQUEL FOR FREE, GET IT, IF YOU HAVE TO PAY, DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME, JUST WAIT FOR THE FULL LENGTH BOOK, THIS PREQUEL SUCKS..... SR

The story seemed rushed... then it just stopped. I'm intrigued about the next two installments but i'd only get them if they are also free. It lacked necessary detail and didnt fully develop the chemistry between characters.

Highly annoyed. Paid to pre-order this book and it lacked pages and completely lacked an ending! waste of money completely. disappointed!

The book started out nicely enough @ 131 pages I thought that it would be too short, so imagine my suprise when all it was was a preview! Had the synopsis mentioned that it was a preview I would not have bothered. Freebee or not! Althought I enjoyed her writing I will not order another of her books. April291962

This is just an introductory 91 page tease to the Rinaldi series. The next book is expected to be released in July. I hope it, and the one to follow it, will be just as good as this little short.

Wow....way to totally misleed people. If I had actually paid for this you better believe I'd be one pissed off woman. Obviously this author lacks respect and common courtesy for her readers as some were actually charged $4 for this "book". And why does B&N let them get away with this...Ridiculous I tell ya.

Rip off

Totally disappointed. Not only was it incomplete but it was completely predictable. The author seemed to string together a series of formulaic romance novel situations, throw in a bunch of unnecessary adult language and called it a plot. I honestly did not even read the entire prequel, only skimming over a lot of it. It was just too stupid. It's been archived.

I have the Kindle app on my phone and they disclose it as a prequel to Tempted By Her Boss, coming July 2nd. Gotta love my kindle, props for their honesty. I however, won't purchase from this author, EVER.

Truly upset to get towards the end, and the ending seems unfinished. And I looked everywhere for the whole book. Never again.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
Thoroughly and completely disappointed to have preordered and waited MONTHS for what isn't even the whole book. This author and B&N should be ashamed at these deceptive, shady, and misleading business practices. Out for money and it pisses me off. Quickest way to lose readers and what was a meager and growing fan base. Whatever. Don't waste your time with this everyone.
