REVIEW : Sleeper by Kayley Loring



Went to bed at: Late.
How long it took to fall asleep: Forever. I have insomnia. Duh.
Number of caffeinated beverages you had consumed: Zero. Thanks for advising me to quit!

My stress level is off the charts.
I can’t sleep right on a normal day, and lately my days are filled with the best kind of chaos.
My ex-wife and husband number two are filming in Poland for three months,
so I’m turning down movie parts to focus on the most important role of my life—
impossibly charming and somewhat capable young single dad.
My son won’t stop asking questions.
My daughter won’t brush her teeth unless I sing her showtunes.
Our regular nanny quit.
The only person I could trust to hire as a temp nanny is my best friend’s sister.

If Mary Poppins and Bill Murray had a baby it would be Willa.
Fresh out of grad school and beautifully weird.
She hates my movies, and my kids adore her.
I couldn’t sleep last night because she wasn’t here.
Turns out I can’t sleep unless she’s in my house now.
Turns out she’s what’s been missing from my life all along.
If my friend had any idea what I want to do to his gorgeous troublemaker of a sister,
he would smother me with a pillow.

The chances of us succeeding as a couple are about as good as that little indie movie
that I made being a huge hit.
But it’s a chance I’m going to take.

Is there an Oscar category for Best Male Finger Banger? Because we have a winner.

my review

Move over Keaton Bridges because Shane Miller just dethroned you as my favorite Kayley book boyfriend.

I loved Shane and Willa from the start. The Hollywood Star and the awkward, nerdy perfumer. Their initial meet cute was super awkward and hilarious and everything you would have expected from a young girl meeting her teenage crush. Flash forward many years and when they meet again it is just as amazing.

I loved the inner thoughts from both Shane and Willa throughout the story, it provided some additional insight into both of their characters. Plus, their chemistry was on FIRE. I loved how well they balanced each other out. Shane is super sweet and ultra swoony. Summer and Lucky, those two sweet adorable children. I even liked Margo, even though I really didn’t want to. Plus, Nico. (PS Kayley I really hope he is getting a book!).

If you love single parent/nanny romances with a little bit of movie star mixed in this is definitely one to check out. Just be ready for Shane, Willa, Lucky and Summer to steal your heart.

Sleeper is another AMAZING book by Kayley Loring and a MUST READ!
