5.0 out of 5 stars A naughty fun read! January 31, 2012
Verified Purchase
This was a coming of age story with a real kick. Josie is 18 and babysitting for an attractive power couple, the Sharps. The Sharps have grown apart and are now mostly strangers that pass in the night. When Mr. Sharp becomes attracted to Josie he trys to fight it but when he finds out the feeling is mutual, they cross the employer/employee line in a big way. This story is more than that though, through Josie, the Sharps find their way back to each other and the love they once shared. This is a great book, very entertaining and the sex scenes will steam up your kindle, high recommend!

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice try but no cigar November 24, 2013
I debated about whether to include this in my Listmania list of "Quality Taboo Erotica." (http://www.amazon.com/lm/R2SFG98MD0Q4A0/) and finally decided against it. I like the premise - a teenage girl babysits for a couple having marital problems and ends up having sex with both, including three-ways. It's the first time the couple have had sex in a long time, and it reminds them how much they love each other. The sex scenes are excellent and the writing is more-than-respectable English, though the author seems to have abandoned proof-reading toward the end.

The problem is that the first half of the book is description that does nothing to advance the story. There's way, way, WAY, too much description of the family and the children and yadaa, yadda, yadda. I skipped or skimmed my way through most of the first half of the book. It wasn't because I was dying to get to the sex scenes - I like buildup. It was because I was waiting for the story to start.

In summary, I give this a "Nice try but no cigar" rating. I'll try something else by this author. Maybe she does better with shorter stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Upset with myself... September 17, 2013
Verified Purchase
Yep. I'm seriously mad at myself for not reading this gem earlier. And FAMILY CARE is exactly that: a gem. Wow and WOW!

So, Josie is your atypical high school senior, opting to spend her last spring break babysitting for the neighborhood power couple, the Sharps, instead of hanging out with her friends. Though the Sharps appear to have it all, they certainly don't have it all together, as Josie soon learns.

The story itself is working on a number of different levels, at once `coming of age' and `coming together' while also `coming apart.' I've read all of Jessa's other work so I KNOW she is "Queen of the plot twist," but she goes above and beyond here, creating a vortex that draws the reader deep into each character. And she does it so subtly that you're not aware you're in until, well, you're in! Smokin' hot sex is set against a backdrop of this ever-present tug o' war--innocence vs guilt, old vs new, strong vs fragile, child vs adult--elevating the husband-cheats-with-babysitter trope by digging into the raw emotions of everyone involved.

Let me add that I LOVE Jessa's handling of the three Sharp kids. They're essentially the initiating incident in the story (in more ways than one) but they're not so present as to be overdone. And still, with their limited page time, I feel like they were real rugrats, each with their own personality and each contributing to the story instead of just being atmosphere.

Don't wait like I did. Read this NOW. You won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hot scenes made it worth the read September 24, 2013
By Lora905
Verified Purchase
I got this book just to see if my assumptions about its plot were correct based on the Amazon description, & they were. Definitely different from the norm. Very sexy, hot & steamy sex scenes, every last one. The only drawbacks, in my opinion, was that 1) it did tend to get a little overly descriptive in some places; 2) right when the scene in the tent is about to get going, the story flips back & forth to give everyone's POV and you may find yourself screaming "get on with it!" like I did; 3) the ending was pretty much 1 big loose end. You get the feeling that the Sharps will base their final decision on whatever Josie decides to do, but you don't know. Overall, a little weird but not bad.

1.0 out of 5 stars For the love of God, skip this one! December 23, 2013
By Annie

Hey, I like an erotic read as well as the next gal...but this was truly disgusting....graphic, explicit sex does not bother me, but the writing and characterizations certainly did...Amazon should not just make this free....you should have to be PAID to read it! Or just not at all....a better idea....don't waste valuable minutes and hours of your life reading such tripe.....

1.0 out of 5 stars I Wish There Had Been A Warning of the Contents January 22, 2014
Verified Purchase
There was nowhere on the book's description page that erotica/elicit sex/threesomes were mentioned. For me, it was misleading. A warning would have been helpful. Family Care is listed under the genres of short stories and contemporary romance. I was disappointed.

This book was sexy in a dirty way. I was almost uncomfortable reading it. And I would've like it to end differently.

Hot!!! Who knew? Don't misjudge this book and pass it by. It can be a bit slow in some areas and i wish the wife's character were more well-rounded, but it's not a bad read overall.
