Overview

Hoping to vindicate her brother, botanist Gina Dunn poses as a nanny to the man she believes framed him. Even though she grew up in a dysfunctional home, how hard can it be looking after twin four-year-old boys? If she can nurture rare orchids, surely she can handle this.

Instant fatherhood hits contractor Will Sinclair hard when his twin sons he didn't know existed come to live with him. The rebellious boys reject Will as their real dad, forcing him to turn to Gina, his new nanny, for her "expert" help.

Interacting with Will and his boys as a “daddy” coach, Gina starts to crave the family she's always longed to have. But Will's reaction when he learns of her deception isn’t her biggest fear—one of two men she loves is lying…

About the Author

A sense of humor was a must when I taught elementary grades and Head Start, and I’ve always loved books and movies that make me laugh. My Fish Out of Water series from Entangled Publishing deals with heroines thrust outside their comfort zones. Their first meetings with their heroes tend to be quirky.

I love camping—out in the wilds and close to nature—with all the comforts of our motor home. Sitting by a clear mountain stream with a good book to read is heaven.

There is no way Gina Dunn's brother is a thief and she will go to any means necessary to prove it. In so doing, Gina takes on a job as a nanny to Will Sinclair's twin four-year-old sons, Harry and Ian. Will was Gina's brother's boss, and her brother repeatedly told Gina that Will was the actual thief. Little did Gina realize that working with Harry and Ian would create problems on a bigger level. Gina never expected to fall head over heels in love with the boys. What is more is that it doesn't take Gina very long to see that Will is a good guy, through and through. For starters, Will never even knew he had children. His ex never told him and she has since died and here are the boys.. Will has no idea on how to be a father. So, hiring a nanny to teach him the ropes, Even though he makes his share of mistakes, he is a quick learner, and has a heart of gold. All the while, Will and Gina are drawn to one another. However, on the one hand, they both strive to keep the boys first and foremost. Furthermore, Gina has own reasons for keeping Will at arms' length - her desire to prove him guilty and to free her brother of the charges. What an adorable story! If not for the adorable little boys, the romance was just perfect. I love the time that it took to develop. The mystery of the very theft that brought them together was handled quite well. This story touched my heart and makes me look forward to reading more from Karen Muir in the future. Many thanks to Entangled Publishing, NetGalley and InkSlinger PR for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.

Overall, Karen Muir's "The Daddy Coach" was a quick, sweet read. I would have rated it 3.5 stars if half stars were possible, but decided to round up because I genuinely liked the main characters, Gina and Will, as well as Will's super cute twin sons, Harry and Ian. Their lovable mischief added a nice touch of lightness and fun to the story. Gina's interactions with Harry and Ian were endearingly awkward at first, but her love for them was clear as she became more comfortable with children in general and her role in these boys' lives in particular. She came across to me as very book smart but rather naive in dealing with people, as evidenced by her need to conduct so much Internet research on childcare and social interactions, plus her decision to hire a "date" for the boys' birthday party. In addition, Gina believed her brother Kyle's story about the robbery without questioning it at all, no matter how implausible it seemed or his complete lack of proof. Most people I know would have had at least a shred of doubt about Kyle's innocence, no matter how much they loved their brother and wanted to believe his story. As for Will, it bothered me a bit that he seemed to be on a path towards repeating his past mistakes by dating Bree, even if she was just someone for him to pass the time with because he thought he couldn't have a romantic relationship with Gina. Like his ex-wife and the twins' mother, Felice, Bree was on the rebound because she had just broken up with her fiance before reconnecting with Will. Also, Bree didn't seem to be all that interested in having a relationship with Harry and Ian. Even though she hosted their birthday party, it was really more about her and her friends than it was about them. She didn't invite any of Ian and Harry's friends, or any other children at all. Basically, Bree just provided the birthday cake, which doesn't seem like much of a celebration to me. At any rate, Gina and Will seemed to make a good couple, and I was happy when they were finally able to work out their problems and come together as a family with Harry and Ian. The book was generally well-written, and I would pick up another of this author's books in the future. *ARC provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

What a heartwarming story for Will and Gina. I loved watching Gina open up her heart to both Will and his boys. The scenes with her and the boys were so sweet and fun. Then watching Will soften towards his boys, trying to make a family was loving. I felt for Gina when she was trying to figure out the jewelry fiasco and how it would impact her, her brother, and Will. The interactions between her brother and herself were a little disheartening. I wish we could have seen a little more of them in the future, but the ending played out very nicely. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher through Netgalley.

Gina wants to set the records straight about her brother's wrongful conviction. So she applies for the nanny position for Will Sinclair's twin boys, in hopes of being able to secure some evidence from the man ( Will ) who wrongfully put him behind bars. A botanist by trade, with no prior nanny skills- what could go wrong? Will is at his wit's end, needing help with his all over the place boys while trying to run a business recovering from a recent mishap. He has his doubts about Ms. Gina, but his boys seemed to like her, she has a persona that he wants to see more of, so its a start. What starts as a hunt, for one thing, becomes a something neither of them saw coming! A sweet, frustrating, ( so many times, I thought Gina needed a reality check along with Will needing a few swift kicks in the pants.) appealing and well-paced storyline. With characters who grew on me as time went on. A heart of hearts read with a real rollercoaster of emotions feel, witness, and sensual highlights throughout. The kind of romance I had to read all in one sitting! I look forward to reading more from Karen Muir soon!

This was the first book that I have read from this author and it was an ok read for me. Will and Gina are brought together because her brother said that Will framed him for a crime. Gina decides to get the evidence that she needs by posing as a nanny for his twin boys. While looking for the evidence that she hopes will free her brother, she ends up finding something else. They were able to find the HEA they both deserved but it felt rushed at the end to get there. I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

This is a sweet romance that I just loved. Gina lies to get a position as a nanny in Will's home for his twin boys. She does this because she thinks he got her brother wrongfully convicted of theft and wants to find proof in his house. However, there was a major problem with her plan - she doesn't particularly like kids or know what to do with them. This is a fun and clever story that drew me right in. I wasn't sure what to expect, but found myself drawn into the characters and their story.. They had a bit of depth to them that made them likeable and made me feel invested in their story and want them to get their HEA ending. I'm giving this book 4 stars because of the ending. It was a bit abrupt and fast - almost as though the author ran out of pages and rushed it to fit it in. If not for this, I would have rated with five stars. I am looking forward to reading more by this author.
