Make Me Yours by Tia Louise-Review Blast

He’s a billionaire single dad who needs help. She’s a sassy single gal who needs work. Live-in nanny? What could go wrong? 

Remington Key: I left the Navy, scored a billion in tech, got married, and had a baby. I did everything by the book. Happily ever after, right? Fast-forward four years, and I’m alone, raising my daughter, caring for my mother-in-law, and trying to keep my stuff together. How did this happen? I was clearly drunk the night I offered a gorgeous girl in a bar $500 a day to be my live-in nanny. Or maybe it was my dick talking. So what if I’ve been alone since forever? I’m focused on launching my new business, not bedding the sexy siren who sleeps down the hall. At least that’s what I keep reminding myself… 

Ruby Banks: Remington Key is distant, brooding, and ridiculously sexy. And when he scoops up his adorable four-year-old daughter Lillie and blows raspberries on her tummy while she squeals with delight, my ovaries literally explode. Bumping into him at our local pub that night slightly drunk and overly frustrated was a total accident. He needed help, and it was the Christian thing to help a man in need. Right? Only, Remington Key does not make me feel very Christ-like… No matter how committed I am to being a responsible employee. 

(A small-town STAND-ALONE CONTEMPORARY Romantic Comedy. This is Ruby and Remi's hilariously adorable love story.)

I'm a total sucker for single dad stories. I can't get enough of them so when I saw the blurb for this book I knew I wanted to read it-and the sooner the better. This book was a quick read that left me with a smile on my face.

Ruby is a fun character. She isn't perfect and has some issues to work through and I think she does it in a perfectly believable way in this story. I sympathized with her in some moments for sure. I loved her interactions with Lillie. I thought they were perfect. Ruby is someone I would definitely enjoy hanging out with at a karaoke bar-or just chilling at home.

Remi? Hello, hot, sexy single dad. I fell for him fast and hard. I loved how determined he was to try and find a good balance in his life; I really respected that. I really loved seeing Ruby bring him back to life in a sense. He was a fabulous book boyfriend.

I love the interactions between Ruby and Remi. That push and pull until FINALLY they give in to their feelings. It felt authentic to me from both of them. I was rooting them on from start to finish. Their relationship was completely believable to me and I enjoyed going on this journey with them.

I loved, ok, appreciated, all of the supporting characters in this book. There are delicate relationships at play here and I think the Author did a great job with all of them. I love seeing how Authors incorporate a child into a book-because honestly, if they don't do it well it changes the whole book. This Author nailed it in my opinion.

The writing was strong and flowed very well. I felt I was right there with these characters the entire book. This book made me laugh and it made me swoon. I truly enjoyed it and would recommend it.

Remington needs help with his daughter...although, really, he needs help feeling like it is ok to move on from the death of his wife. The nanny for his daughter is a little bit of an excuse and a little bit of an actual need.

Ruby is the first woman he has been attracted to since the death of his wife. And, along with this attraction, there is dealing with a little guilt...and his mother in law.

I loved that the realities of moving on seemed realistic, but that they didn't overpower the romance and the rest of the story. So often it feels like the while story is about the getting ready to move on point...but this one starts when he is already to that point and it allows the relationship to develop.

I enjoyed the characters in this, although the mother in law was enjoyable for what seemed like authenticity and not because I liked her as a character...that said, I understood her and I felt for her.

I thought the writing in this was strong and I liked the pacing of the novel overall. I enjoyed and recommend this title.
