A Family of his Own is part 2 in the Mannies Incorporated Series by Sean…
Another favourite of mine and the first in a series. The series is called “Mannies Incorporated” just like the first book and is apparently all about male nannies who happen to fall in love with someone in the households they take care of.
In this first book we meet Slayde who lives in the house of Mindy and her three kids. Mindy is a soldier and currently deployed overseas to Afghanistan. Slayde works very hard to take care of the kids, but they manage.
Then one day a stranger knocks on the door. It turns out to be Drake, Mindy’s brother. Drake hasn’t been around a lot and is determined to take care of the kids while his sister is gone. But then he finds Slayde there already. Pretty soon things heat up and Drake starts looking differently at Slayde.
However, Drake is still very much in the closet and has to learn to show his feelings and admit to himself that he is very much in love with Slayde. It takes him a while but he gets there in the end.
This book is very easy to read but also a lot of fun. I loved it very much and look forward to the other editions in the series.
Slayde’s got the best job on earth: he’s a nanny to Army nurse and widow Mindy’s three kids. He’s been with the family since the oldest was born and is Uncle Slayde to all three children. When Mindy’s deployed, things aren’t easy, but he manages just fine. At least he does until Mindy’s big brother Drake shows up unexpectedly, announcing he’s there to help while Mindy is gone.
Drake is almost a stranger to the kids, hot as hell, especially in his motorcycling leathers, and straighter than straight. On top of that, Drake’s not used to dealing with kids, with things like gluten free, recycling and not eating fast food and soon has Slayde’s tight routine in shambles.
Slayde thinks Drake is far more of a hindrance than a help, at least at the start, but he tries to get along for Mindy’s sake and eventually, having Drake around is easier than not. But what’s he supposed to do when the straight, sexy leather wearing ex-cop makes a pass at him one night? Maybe there’s more to Drake than Slayde assumed.
