When I convinced my friends to join me in a scheme to play the stock market, it paid off beyond our expectations. Honestly, most days I don’t even remember that I’m a billionaire. But it was big news for my family. In fact, my cousin made me guardian of her son in the event something happened to her.
At face value, it sounds kind of nice.
But I never really knew my cousin.
And I only found out about her decision a week before the kid showed up on my doorstep.
Thankfully, the woman who brought the boy out to me on the plane is willing to stay and be his nanny.
Since all the local daycares have a waiting list, I don’t have the luxury of being picky. Maybe I have reservations about sharing my home with a beautiful woman, but it’s a completely professional relationship.
She’s going to look after the kid.
I’m going to look after my heart.

I admit that I am not a big fan of the billionaire-romance subgenre, but Elizabeth Maddrey’s books have been on my radar and I decided I would take a chance on The Billionaire’s Nanny; I am glad I did. I liked the storyline and I’m glad I read this really engaging story. My issue with the billionaire-romance trope is that these stories often feel superficial, unrealistic, and/or completely unrelatable. But that is not the case with Maddrey’s story. In this book, the reader is treated to a tale of best friends who work real hard in their every-day lives, who are always there for one another no matter what, and who just so happen to strike it big after playing in the stock market. Scott and his group of friends are genuine, down-to-earth kind of guys. They work hard, pay their bills, do what they can to support their families, go to church and pray for one another regularly, and have hopes and dreams of meeting Ms. Right and starting families of their own. I really loved each character and found their struggles, their insecurities, and their day-to-day quite relatable. They don’t let the money they happen to win change who they are as men, and I think this is really cool. In fact, they so don’t let the money change them they actually forget they have it, which I thought was cute. There are a couple of moments in the story where Scott starts to spiral, but Whitney reminds him he has the funds to fix whatever the problem is and they both laugh at the situation. As far as Whitney goes, I thought her character to be quite good. I loved how stable she is no matter what life throws her way, and I really appreciated how much she loves sweet, little Beckett. She is a great surrogate mom who is willing to do whatever she needs to protect and care for her endearing, precocious little boy. And speaking of love, I liked how Scott and Whitney’s relationship developed over the course of the story. At first, Scott is slightly annoyed by Whitney’s existence, then he grows to appreciate her opinions, orderliness, and structure with Beckett because he gets it comes from a place of motherly love. One day, though, Whitney stops being “just the nanny,” and Scott’s and her relationship goes from lukewarm friendship to Mr. and Mrs. Right-for-Each-Other. It’s super sweet!
The Billionaire’s Nanny is an endearing story that I found to be highly engaging. I enjoyed my time with these characters and can’t wait to see what’s in store for them next in Austin’s story, The Billionaire’s Best Friend. If you are a fan of well-written Contemporary Romances then I highly recommend this read!
