Okay, enough about Bob and Susan. This story is about Matt.
After growing up dirt poor in a seedy Chicago neighborhood, Matt Tremont seemingly has it all now-brains, brawn, and billions. And most important, Noah, his five-year old son, the one good outcome of a disastrous relationship that destroyed his last ounce of trust. The only thing he's lacking is the perfect nanny for his son. And Ariana Jones is absolute perfection. Utterly enchanting. Completely fascinating. And totally off-limits.
Like a match made in heaven, this is Ari's dream job. Swallowed up in the foster care system after losing her brother and mother, Ari has always dreamed of family. She showers five-year-old Noah with all the love she's kept bottled up inside. Love she could also offer to her gorgeous billionaire boss-if only he weren't the very last man she could ever hope to have.
But when sizzling sparks of attraction turn into a forbidden, sinfully hot night of pleasure, will Ari's love be enough to make Matt forget the past and love fearlessly?
We've talked about romances. Yes we know that the guy and girl will most likely end up together. And again I say: "So what?" The means justify the ends(?). This is not about what ultimately happens between them. This is about how they get there. And just like #1 & #2, I loved how they get there. At the risk of being repetitive from the earlier reviews (Shocked? Didn't think so), let me point out some plot points/takeaways/reactions for you:
1. In each book, there is a 3rd person who takes center stage in the romantic relationship. In this case, it's Matt's 5-year old son. I really like that the protagonists' relationship has to survive the care of a family member.
2. I am so emotionally connected to these characters. It happens right away every book. I basically cry or smile every other page. Do I go into each book expecting those reactions? Doesn't matter and don't care.
3. The way I felt about the protagonists in books 1 & 2 carried over to #3. I'm always happy to see these same characters reemerge in later books.
4. I like that each epilogue tells us which Maverick is next and who his love interest will be.
5. There are several references that I can relate to:
The Oakland Zoo - this is about 3-4 miles from where I grew up
San Jose State - the school that Joni went to in college years 3-5
Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach is mentioned. I read all of the Dahl books to
my 3 kids (the BFG is my favorite).
Bring on #4. As I understand it, Irresistible in Love will be hitting my TBR pile in early 2017. I'm ready now!
Matt Tremont is one of the Maverick Billionaires whose brilliance has yielded great paybacks in business. The only thing Matt cares about more is his son, Noah. To the exclusion of everything else, Matt's focus centers on his 5 year old child, trying to provide him with all the love he never had himself, because of parents who bullied and belittled him until their deaths. Lovers, but never married, Noah's mother, Irene turned over custody to Matt. She wasn't interested in raising a child, motherhood taking too much away from her personal escapades.
After firing another, from a long list of nannies, Matt turns to his friend Daniel, hoping he'll be able to help. As it turns out, Daniel knows someone who would be perfect for them. Ariana Jones, preferring to be called Ari, adores children and working in a teaching capacity, is asked to interview for the nanny position.
When she meets Matt, sparks fly as she realizes they had seen each other at a charitable event, without being introduced. Ari and Noah take to each other immediately and Matt can hardly believe, after so many years of frustration, that he has found an intelligent, charming and affectionate nanny for his beloved son. Moving into his mansion, Ari's life suddenly turns her dream into reality.
There are so many amazing layers to this story that it is hard for me to express them all. Some people, growing up with nothing but rejection, spring back from adversity, against all odds to make their lives special. Matt and Ari have done that. Others, with a wealth of everything, have nothing to show or give.
Matt is sure Ari is too young for him and fights his feelings for her as the only means to protecting his heart from hurt he believes will occur. Ari, growing up in foster homes after the death of her drug addicted mother, lives life with a resilient spirit, astounding Matt with her strength. Love she gives freely, asking for nothing in return. She has a brother, Gideon who she has tried locating over the years. Revealing this information to Matt, he is determined to help her find him. The happily ever after is not a surprise, but the most wonderful expectation of how the nuances of love, respect and honor unfold. Kudos ladies ~ Bravo!
