Review: The Au Pair Affair by Bonnie Dee

The Au Pair AffairThe Au Pair Affair by Bonnie Dee
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Short, romantic, and sweet. All I needed was another slice of cheesiness to make this a lasagna treat.

"He left his seamy past...and found a steamy romance. "

When Louis Guzman signs on with a Hollywood nanny agency and scores a job offer on his very first interview, he's thrilled for the chance to start fresh-and hopeful that no one will delve too deeply into his checkered work and romantic past.

Helping an amicably divorced Beverly Hills power couple raise their two adorable children is the perfect situation. Too perfect to let a vibe of attraction to the handsome producer tempt Louis to flirt his way to a pink slip.

Since he came out, Dan Krefman has been too busy with his job to experiment with his newly embraced sexuality. But with undercurrents sizzling like live power cables between him and his kids' hunky Latino nanny, he's finding it hard to maintain his distance.

Louis promises Dan-and himself-that just one encounter will get the lust out of both their systems. But it's only the beginning...and when Louis's past crawls out of the shadows, dirty secrets threaten to destroy not only his own future, but the family he has come to love.

I thought I was reading a Mills & Boon or Harlequin book here. You know? The ones I read way back in highschool? The ones that kept our hearts aflutter and imagination wild?

In any case, when I first read that title, I had a thought that this was going to involve some cheating. Well, thank goodness there was none of that as Dan was divorced. DUH me.

As for the plot? Well, I think everyone knows that this is a plot exhaustedly exhausted by Harlequin and M&B authors, and crossing over to MM does not make a difference at all. The end result is just the same: satisfying fluffy morantic read that is easy on the brain and easier to let go.

I would recommend this to one and all who like their fluffs like I do once in a while. Take it to bed!
