Lily has an asshat for a husband. He’s a class ‘A’ eff-tard and it’s okay that he’s the most miserable S.O.B in the world because in the first chapter Elizabeth kills him and Lily only has to struggle with the emotional forfeiture of dignity during her years spent with Barry and the PSTD from the accident in which he died for a little while. She is a really well put together woman. Well… she was almost shmushed by Barry’s terribad passive aggressive driving that leaves her with a limpy-gimpy lame gam so I guess there is that too, but Lily is actually over Barry long before Elizabeth writes him out of the book. I really feel like Lily should have talked to Elizabeth more and told her how over Barry she was because ma-girl comes out of this boom crash pretty mentally A-FREAKING-OTAY for someone who should be a bit scarred up all over in the head! This of course is the technical summary of the first chapter of the book. If the words I’m using are too formal please seek aid from Urban Dictionary or Google. Logan Anderson is one of the firefighters on scene of the accident and he first meets Lily when she is shmushed in the passenger seat and they have a big ol’ bonding moment. I actually had a big ol’ nerd moment because when Lily goes to thank Logan after she has recovered there is this part where she says, “I came to say thank you for saving my life, Mr…?” and Logan says, “Anderson. Logan Anderson.” How many people have been ruined for life by The Matrix and cannot hear Mr. Anderson and not hear Hugo Weaving saying it. Thanks, Hugo Weaving for your narration of Logan and Lily meeting. It added a certain depth and suspense it wouldn’t have had if I had not seen The Matrix. Now this book is a contemporary, roasted marshmallow erotic romance. I’ve read many, many Elizabeth books now and she is capable of all different heat levels of makin’ the love. I would put this at an even four on the Elizabeth Kelly Hot Kitten Scale of Hot Love Makin’. After Barry kicks the cat carrier, Elizabeth finds that his dickishness truly knew no bounds and she finds herself at the mercy of his parents. Under the threat of being homeless at the end of her pregnancy and losing her child to his equally dickish parents, Lily is at the end of rope, and it ain’t no joke. When she tracks Logan (Mr.) Anderson down to thank him for saving her life and finds he needs a nanny she thinks her opportunity has knocked. Let’s be real, opportunity has to be on Lil’s side because Karma, Fate, God have been giving her the big one right in the cornhole. Logan’s dealing with his traumatized daughter Hazel who has been mute since she witnessed her mother’s death six months earlier; his luck with nanny’s has been anything but. He’s really looking for someone who can reach Hazel and he worries that no one can. When Lily comes to meet Hazel, she and the little sugar cookie of silence seem to connect, but then Logan sees Lily’s got a bun in her oven. Logan’s fear is that Lily’s baking concerns will be solely for her baking buns and his sugar cookie of silence will be forgotten when the bun is baked. Taking a chance on a short order baker with Hazel being so vulnerable and having just lost her own mother isn’t something he wants to do but something about Lily and Hazel together touches his feelies. After a while Logan and Lily are touching all sorts of one another’s things and feelies, there are lines being crossed, all sorts of blurry, foggy ‘wait-one-second’ stuff, and ‘oh-goodness-they-shouldn’t-do-that’ happening. You will like it. I liked it. I loved it. I want to have a baby! BABIES EVERYWHERE! I do have to say that this is one of those books that is three or fours steps up from a classy Jerry Springer, minus the best friends, sisters and fiancees sleeping with one another, yet equally facepalm-y in the dramatic way. I know it makes me want to keep my nonexistent weiner in my pants around my nonexistent irresistible best friend nanny. Please keep in mind that I love romances that make me cheer for lovers who ride the line of trainwreck relationships. It really is not okay for you to do ANY of what is in this book to a child if you are not planning to keep the child for four, five, six and five thousand forevers. Don’t worry Hazel, I will adopt you if Logan (Mr.) Anderson and Lily eff this up!
