Author: Jo Raven
Matthew Hansen is the kind of handsome that has grown women whispering behind their hands and giggling like schoolgirls.
Dark, tall and mysterious, he’s a newcomer to our little town. He’s a gritty, grease-covered mechanic, and a single daddy.
Plus he’s looking for a nanny – and I am desperately looking for a job.
Sounds like the perfect deal.
Only he’s a jerk. An uncivilized, hulking brute. Zero manners. Zero interest in making me feel welcome in his home. Downright rude.
But oh so sexy.
And I need the job. I can do this.
One thing is for sure: I can’t fall for the Caveman. No matter how sexy he is. How mysterious. How tortured.
That’s the only rule – and one I’m about to break.

Ms. Raven did it again!! This is a wonderful and moving story that will have you reaching for tissues as well as making sure to keep the lights on while reading this suspenseful/complex emotional romance story.
Matt is a single father. He lost his wife to cancer several years before and after he lost her, he lost himself to grief and terrible loss. After his wife died, he almost went with her but he had his children to live for but still it was a battle for him to just move about and just BE every day. After his wife’s death, Matt because a rude and anti-social person. All he cared about was his children and that was that. You can feel his love for his kids but his dislike for others can be felt. His move to a new town and a new job, Matt realizes he needs a nanny that he can depend on and trust. This is where we meet Octavia.
Octavia( aka Tati...Tay.) is outgoing and sweet with a sassy personality. She is great with children. She comes to realize Matt is struggling personally inside and she wants to help in more ways than one. She can understand his pain and wants to help but his rude personality doesn’t endear him to her, at first. Tay has her own past full of pain and she tries not to let that rule her present. She is a fixer and for her, Matt and the children come first before her troubles.
I loved the complex emotions and actions that are shown in this story. I cant say too much without giving everything away but there is a lot of twists and turns in this story. The author does a fantastic job of hooking me immediately with the interplay between Matt and Tay then introducing the hot, spicy chemistry between these two. Also the suspense that comes up in the story was a great added bonus to a emotional love story that had me rooting for these two deserving MC. Kudos to Ms. Raven for writing a beautiful love story.
