I wasn’t supposed to fall in love with the nanny.
When my wife left, she took the illusion of happiness with her, and I’ve been caught in a free fall ever since. For nine long months, I’ve been fighting to figure out how to be a single dad, how to be alone.
For nine long months, I’ve been failing.
When Hannah walked through the door, I took my first breath since I’d found myself on my own. She slipped into our lives effortlessly, showing me what I’ve been missing all these years. Because Hannah made me smile when I thought I’d packed the notion of happiness away with my wedding album.
She was only supposed to be the nanny, but she’s so much more.
The day my wife left should have been the worst day of my life, but it wasn’t. It was when Hannah walked away, taking my heart with her.
I feel like I’ve been sitting here for days staring at my blank computer screen trying to figure out how I wanted to begin this review because I knew that whatever I wrote couldn’t possibly give this story the proper amount of justice it so truly deserves. Dare I say it…but this may be Staci Hart’s best story to date (although I must admit that I absolutely adore every single one of her previously releases books that I’ve read) and I could hardly manage to put this one down (those dang college classes and work always getting in the way…oh yeah and of course that pesky little thing called sleep, but who really needs it anyways?! 😛).
A Little Too Late by Staci Hart is the kind of story that every reader craves…You know the kind that consumes you whole body and soul, holding on tight until your heart is left all twisted up and that ultimate book hangover begins to seep in, rendering you helpless for days (maybe even weeks to come 😍😍😍).
Not only do we have our sexy leading man, but we’ve also got our swoon-worthy single father of two, Charlie (if you’ve already read A Thousand Letters then you know exactly who he is! If you haven’t please don’t fret because this book can be completely enjoyed as a standalone)! This man made my heart go pitter-patter from start to finish (he may have very well taking my number one book boyfriend spot 😲)…just thinking about him has my stomach in knots at this very moment.
Now moving onto our sweet, kind and beautiful leading lady…little Miss Hannah! Let’s start off with the fact that she is a young nanny (Au Pair) and a DUTCH baker, who slowly bakes her way right into his broken heart. After a terrible first experience as an Au Pair for a man with wondering hands, she’s reluctant to accept the position, but luckily she does and before she knows it she’s well on her way to finding her happily ever after with a man who deserves his.
In my heart this book was EVERYTHING! Staci Hart has truly outdone herself once again and now I cannot wait to dive into whatever she comes up with next because her books are never the same and they always capture my attention!
About Staci Hart
Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey.
From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
