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…

    Totally aggravated

    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.

    I prepaid $4 for this 80 page prequel. I feel robbed.

    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.

    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! :(

    Miss led

    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.

    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.

    This is a prequel, but why blame someone you don't know?

    I preordered this when it was free and I cannot wait for the rest of the story. I for one am not a person who places blame on the author, yes it wpould have been nice if it said it was a prequel but that doesn't mean the author is the one to blame. Face it people the author doesn't always get a say in what is diaplayed. I liked it and I cannot wait to read the full story this is a prequeal that captured my attention and I cannot wait to get the rest! If you want to do nothing but complain then do so outside the reveiws, I don't read these to hear your petty complaints.

    Seriously...

    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.

    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.

    Are you EFFING kidding me!

    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.....

    It was free

    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.

    Smh

    Truly upset to get towards the end, and the ending seems unfinished. And I looked everywhere for the whole book. Never again.

    Good short

    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.

    I have enjoyed other books by Karen Erickson... But if I had to pay for these 5 chapters I would be very upset.. I have been looking for the complete book and had to find out from customer reviews that the book will not be out until July. What a bummer.
