Josie thought she was getting a promotion at her architectural firm, but instead her career implodes. She impulsively takes up her roommates' offer to nanny for a little girl on a mega yacht in the South of France. Even though she can't stand boats, this seems like fate giving her an opportunity to lick her wounds in a bucket list paradise while she figures out how to get her life back. But this little girl she's arrived to look after has a daddy. A widowed, hot, billionaire of a daddy. And if there's anything that Josie needs less than having to be stuck on a yacht, no matter how luxurious, it's an inconvenient and highly combustible attraction to her new boss. A man who, for all his wealth, is grumpy, conceited, and utterly closed off. Xavier Pascale is on an emotional island of his own making. It's just him and his daughter and he likes it that way. He works hard, his shareholders are happy, and his best friends are his body guard and the people who work for him. What's wrong with that? But then he meets Josephine Marin. Her arrival in his life is like a deep ocean tremor along a catastrophic emotional fault line. And now ... well, now, he's very, very aware of his isolation and his very human need. But he can't be distracted. When he gets distracted terrible things happen. He should send the nanny home. He really should. But what if he just takes what he wants, just this one time? This is a standalone, contemporary romance. It includes luscious scenes of sparkling blue ocean; tantalizing, seductive food; as well as a smoking hot, dirty-talking Frenchman. If traveling scares you, or sexy times scare you, then this book is not for you. But if you're looking for a decadent armchair vacation after being stuck in one place for over a year-a story that will make you laugh, swoon, fan yourself, and cry-then this one is for you! "I am totally wrecked. It was one of my favorite books I've read in a long time. Just absolutely perfect."… (mere)

This was perfect. I loved all the characters. Josephine seemed like someone I would be friends with, Xavier was dreamy and broken and a person consciously working to be a good person, and his daughter, Dauphine, was wonderful (I mostly hate kids in romance, they always act in age-inappropriate ways and are annoying in their precocity.) The side characters were great too, both the crew members on the boat where much of this occurs and Josie and X's friends and family. And the places! Boyd clearly knows and loves the South of France, and though I don't have as much experience of the place as does Boyd, from the time I have spent there her writing feels authentic and beautiful. (And in pandemic times who doesn't want to read about the shades of blue in the Mediterranean and market days in Corsica?) I also loved the discussion of Charleston architecture and history. Boyd lives in Atlanta as I did for 16 years. Charleston is a big long weekend destination for many of us, and like Boyd I find it an easy city to love, warts and all. Perhaps most importantly the writing was really good, the relationships felt right (as long as we remember that this is fantasy), the love story left me weak in the knees, the sex scenes were incredibly hot, and the angst level just enough. Do I recommend this to my romance-loving friends? Oui! Absolument! C'est super! (And that is as far as 9th grade French is going to get me.) ( )
