REVIEW ➞ The Nanny and the Hothead by Krista Sandor


Charlotte Ames despises hotheads. You know the type. The growly, perma-scowling bully who blows his top at the slightest inconvenience. And her former boss, Top Chef Mitch Elliott, is the king of all hotheads.

How big of a jerk is he? Big enough to make her hurl a salad at the guy.

Those vegetables didn’t ask to be strewn across the floor. But Mitch deserved it!

Is he devastatingly handsome when he loses his cool? Could his stormy blue eyes, flashing with passion, melt the panties right off a gal? That would be a yes. Still, she can’t stand him. And she’d thought she’d seen the last of the culinary creep.

She was wrong.

On the cusp of eviction and with five bucks to her name, she needs a job.

Enter the exclusive Nanny Match Agency and an opportunity to make some real cash.

Sounds great, right? Wrong again!

The universe has one messed-up sense of humor. When she wakes up after a margarita bender and learns she’s become the hothead’s nanny, life goes topsy-turvy! But when the nanny dust settles, she sees another side of the man. A man who might be more than a hothead. A man who gazes at her with such intensity, she can barely keep from combusting.

Don’t fall for the hotheaded chef.

Her head knows what to do. If only she could convince her heart.

Could this nanny match be the match that changes everything, or will it get too hot in the kitchen for the nanny and the hothead?

Charlotte Ames might not have two nickels to rub together, but she was ready for love.


What do a tossed salad, speeding dating and too many strong margaritas have in common? This story! I absolutely adored this story from start to finish.

Charlotte is in desperate need of a job. She is about to lose her apartment and has barely any money to her name when a nanny opportunity is offered to her. The man she would nannying for? Her enemy and the man she used to work for. Mitch is struggling with his new role as father, he is running his own business and keeping the walls he built around himself hidden.

I loved the chemistry between Charlotte and Mitch. There was a connection between them from the start and it only continued to grow as they got to know each other and spent more time with each other. I love how Charlotte is with Oscar and how she helps him feel comfortable when his entire world was changing.

It was great to see characters from previous series pop up, especially Gabe and Monica!

The Nanny and the Hothead will have you laughing, swooning and craving a grilled cheese from the start!
