~~Summary~~

Eight-Days-a-Week-3D-Bookstack-2
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 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.


~~Review~~

Eight Days a Week is a fluffy, but enjoyable, sweet read.

There's so much to like about this book. First, I really loved that this story was told from Andrew's POV. Sometimes, I don't think I satisfy my desire for a male perspective enough, so I was glad that I was able to do so with this one. Speaking of Andrew, I felt like he was a genuine guy and it was good to see him growing up some throughout the story. And while I enjoyed his and Gwen's relationship, it was the children that stole the show for me. The children were so adorable and I loved them with Andrew.

There's some sexy times and even a few times where I giggled out loud. There's love and growth. This was a good book and if you're looking for a book that's a light and easy read, definitely check out Eight Days a Week.

~~About the Author~~


Amber is a full-time mom and a full-time wife who is employed full time and writes when she can. She believes in Happily Ever Afters that occur every day—despite the obstacles real life serves up on a regular basis. Or perhaps they’re sweeter simply because of them. She always has two rubber bands on her wrist, a song in her head, and too much creamer in her coffee cup that reads ‘Cocoa,’ because she’s a rebel.If she’s not at her desk, with her boys, or behind the computer, she’s supporting live music with her arms raised above her head and her eyes closed, waiting for the drop.

Additional Praise for Eight Days a Week

"Laugh-out-loud story about a guy who goes to look at a room to rent and discovers it comes with a job - that of live-in nanny to two damaged kids. So Andrew Lyons accidentally becomes the "manny". Written in his POV, this book chronicles his hilarious escapades as he looks after and grows to love Bree and Brady, and his employer, Gwen. His pranks and spot-on observations about kids' TV shows had me giggling, but there were a few serious moments worthy of a sniffle as well. The star of the show may be Don, though - you'll just have to read this book to find out about him! Highly recommended."
