Overview

LOVE IS A DEAL BREAKER . . .

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!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
05/12/2014
Lemmon offers a surprisingly frumpy romance between Landon Downey, a man comfortable only when he’s in control, and Kimber Reynolds, a live-in-the-moment woman, in the third Love in the Balance contemporary (after Hard to Handle). They become friends after meeting on vacation, and reunite when Landon needs an emergency nanny for his nephew. Kimber couldn’t be less qualified or Landon more desperate. A premise suited for hijinks and hilarity is overwhelmed by a tepid arrangement between the two, hinging on the notion of completing a list of sexual activities. Instead of a delightful romp with these personable characters, Lemmon delivers a series of clichés while avoiding erotic interactions. When the relationship becomes complicated, the author takes a scolding and disapproving tone while describing normal frictions in a budding romance. This would be forgivable with the couple’s potential for passion, but the intimacies and strength of affection are skipped over, inadequately replaced with fond recollections of happier days. (July)

Meet the Author

Jessica Lemmon has always been a dreamer. At some point, she decided head-in-the-clouds thinking was childish, went out, and got herself a job . . . and then she got another one because that one was lousy. And when that one stopped being fulfilling, she went out and got another . . . and another. Soon it became apparent she'd only be truly happy doing what she loved. And since "eating potato chips" isn't a viable career, she opted to become a writer. With fire in her heart, she dusted off a book she'd started years prior, finished it, and submitted it. It may have been the worst book ever, but it didn't stop her from writing another one. Now she has several books finished, several more started, and even more marinating in her brain (which currently resides in the clouds, thankyouverymuch), and she couldn't be happier. She firmly believes God gifts us with talents for a purpose, and with His help, you can create the life you want. (While eating potato chips.)

Jessica is an ex-meat-eater, writer, artist, dreamer, wife, and den mother to two dogs.
