I thought the sexual chemistry between h/H was nice and believable. There is a really sexy scene in the story, but I think I would have liked more tension to the story, a little more build-up. I know it's a novella, so it happens quick, but I love when h/H are in close quarters, living together, having to be around each other, playing house, etc., so I'm always going to want to see that stretched out more. I wanted a little more tease.
I would have loved more interaction between h and H, with them and the hero's brothers and his dad. There is some fun, cute interaction with one brother, Butch, and I so wanted more of that! I liked him in there mixing it up, being in the way, making the hero annoyed and jealous. More of that would have been bonus. I love to read adorable kids in romances, and I kind of wanted a bit more time seeing the heroine and Janie together.
I enjoyed this romance, nothing I disliked or hated, but I think I was left wishing I'd had a bit more here and there. Overall, enjoyable, and the characters were sweet.
I really enjoyed Heat of the Moment by Robin Kaye. It is a well written novella and all the characters are well-defined, distinctive, and easy to identify with. This is the first book I have read by Ms. Kaye and it certainly will not be the last.
This is the story about Cameron O’Leary, a good-looking former firefighter turned arson investigator; Erin Crosby, a registered nurse working only temp assignments in order to have the flexibility to complete her MSW; and Janie O’Leary, Cam's spunky, seven year old daughter who is finally in remission. Cameron hires Erin to take care of Janie while he is at work, and not only is she super qualified, she is also super hot. There is an immediate attraction between Cam and Erin and within a week, they spend a night together that evolves their relationship into much more than employer and employee, friends, and above all, temporary. Due to some miscommunication in the bedroom, they stumble, but their love for each other and Janie concurs all.
Overall, this is a heartwarming and sensual romance that should be on your TBR list.

Cameron O'Leary left his dad, two brothers and job as a firefighter behind to take a job as an arson investigator and create a safer, more stable environment for his seven-year old daughter, Janie, who was diagnosed two years ago with having a brain tumor. With the nanny on vacation and his daughter given the all-clear to come home, Cam agrees he needs a live-in nurse. When a bombshell pin-up model worthy woman shows up at his door dismayed over being "late", he immediately believes she's got the wrong house, because he knows he'd never forget having slept with a woman that looks like that.
Erin Crosby has worked as a pediatric RN for three years before deciding that she wants more out of her career and goes back to school. While working on her Masters thesis, she's called up one afternoon by her best friend, Kendall, with an immediate job offer. She's told that a man needs a home health care worker that can do some light cleaning and cooking as well as caring for his recovering daughter and helping with some school work. She never expected the man to be as young and extraordinarily fit as he was.
The attraction is mutual and instant. But how can they get past the boss / employee guidelines?
Hot Factor: 3
-More of a novella in length.
It's hard to maintain the professionalism and respect the boundaries of boss/employee when you are mutually attracted to the person living under the same roof, sleeping only a few doors down. Cam and Erin try valiantly, but lose the battle or restraint. They are nice characters with a lot of heart, but I think that is also part of their downfall. They put their hearts out there to be hurt by the smallest of perceived slights. There were not a lot of secondary characters, but the ones there were, were enjoyable. The chemistry, dialogue and interaction between the cast was believable. The plot flowed smoothly. There were a few minor issues of miscommunication, but no major conflict to resolve. The outcome was rather easy to predict, but that did not detract from the overall experience.
Overall Rating: 3.8
