Don’t touch the nanny. It’s one rule I’m most certainly going to break.
Since becoming a single father, I have two things that keep me sane—my daughter Lily and playing football for the NFL. But when my meddling sister hires a nanny without my knowledge, I’m not thrilled to come home and find the woman has taken over my house. Our instant attraction is one more complication I don’t need in my life.
But my daughter loves Amelia, and I will do anything for that tiny munchkin. Even if it means walking around with blue balls most of the time. Why does the nanny have to be so sweet—and drop dead gorgeous? She’s driving me crazy. Never in my life have I wanted a woman more.
I just need to make it through this season. I can do that. Hands free, of course. But then there’s that moment, and I know she’s thinking what I’m thinking and, well, yeah. Screw the rules
I like a good sports romance, so of course I was up for reviewing The Nanny Rules by Melynda Price. The book is a pretty predictable smutty romance book, so if that is your jam, I think you will really enjoy it. I liked it enough, but not enough that it really wowed me. For me it just felt like something was missing from it, but I don't know what it was.

I liked the heroine Amelia, but I found myself a little confused by her. We know right up front that she has a bad past, but it's never really brought up again for awhile until near the end. It causes a lot of what I felt was unnecessary drama between her and Brody. 

Brody is definitely a complicated character. I did think he was a good dad, and that was nice to read about. I understood his hesitation to start things with Amelia because he really didn't want to be that "Guy who sleeps with the nanny." He was also still grieving over the loss of his wife and her betrayal. That has to be a really hard thing to go through.

I do think I found an error, but it might be fixed in the final version. At one point, Amelia finds out that Brody's wife had cheated on him, but then she never brings it up with him that she knows. Later, he admits it to her but she reacts as if it was the first time she is hearing it. It was kind of confusing.

I do think I was a little frustrated with their inability to commit to each other, so this made me not like this book as much as I could. It was a little predictable, but sometimes I think that is okay in romance books, especially if you are looking for that.
