BOOK REVIEW: Eight Days a Week by Amber L. Johnson

From Goodreads:
Gwen Stone has secrets she’s not ready to reveal. After a recent promotion at work, she needs a caretaker for her children. She’s frenzied and in a lurch and pretty much ready to hire the first person who comes along. So she does.

Andrew Lyons needs to get out of his sister’s apartment, and a Craigslist posting may be the answer to his prayers. But what he thought was an ad for a room rental turns into a job offer he can’t refuse. Accepting the nanny position could change his life, if only he had a clue how to be a grownup.

A working mother, a shirtless manny who looks good in a towel, two children who need more than than a babysitter, and hours of kids’ TV can only spell disaster for everyone involved. 

Because a manny should always mind his own business. 

And he definitely shouldn’t fall in love with his boss.

Genre: Contemporary Romance/Comedy
Length:  pages: 261 pages
Price on Amazon: $4.99


R.E. Hargrave's Review
* * * * *
This is my first time reading Ms. Johnson's work, but it will not be my last. *ponders how to find time to read copy of Beatless mocking me from my bookcase*

Seriously, people, if you like a feel good story with a creative cast of characters, you can't go wrong with Eight Days a Week. It'll make you laugh, cry, and root for the little guy. Or, erm, not so little . . . sorry, Don.

Andrew ‘Dee’ Lyons enters the story as your typical “trust fund, its all about me, rich boy” who has run out of his play money. If he wants to get his hands on the rest of his inheritance, he’s going to have to grow up. Insert an interfering sister and a Craigslist ad, and watch the hijinks and mayhem ensue. Starting with the interview where Dee first lays sight on Gwen Stone, becoming tongue-tied and landing himself a job as a nanny, erm, manny.

There’s no other way to put it, except that I loved this story. It had all the right elements to keep me engaged and involved in what was happening to the characters. While Eight Days a Week is not an erotica, there are intense sexy moments (some interlaced with rather humorous moments as well!), therefore making this an adult read. As a mother of three, the scenes involving the kids were priceless, and spot on. 

Kudos, Ms. Johnson, on an amazing book.
