I wasn’t supposed to fall in love with the nanny.
When my wife left, she took the illusion of happiness with her, and I’ve been caught in a free fall ever since. For nine long months, I’ve been fighting to figure out how to be a single dad, how to be alone.
For nine long months, I’ve been failing.
When Hannah walked through the door, I took my first breath since I’d found myself on my own. She slipped into our lives effortlessly, showing me what I’ve been missing all these years. Because Hannah made me smile when I thought I’d packed the notion of happiness away with my wedding album.
She was only supposed to be the nanny, but she’s so much more.
The day my wife left should have been the worst day of my life, but it wasn’t. It was when Hannah walked away, taking my heart with her.

My Review: 4/5
I was in the mood for a romantic book when I picked up A Little Too Late by the wonderful Staci Hart. I was not disappointed.
This book is about the taboo father falling in love with the nanny. Hannah (originally from Holland) is in the United States working as a nanny, fresh from her previous job. She instantly feels an attraction towards her new boss, the father of two adorable children, Charlie. But, she knows it’s wrong to feel this way. She fights her feelings and focuses on her true love, caring for the children.
Charlie also feels an attraction towards Hannah. However, his wife abruptly left him, he is hesitant to give in to his growing feelings.
While this isn’t my favorite book by Staci Hart, it is still a great read. I enjoyed reading about each of their pasts and their overwhelming yearning to move forward.
I also must comment on Hart’s fantastic writing skill. I felt as though I was reading poetry at times, and not a novel.
