This is the tale of Dr. Quentin and the nanny Nia his office manager hires in the wake of the death of his wife some time earlier. They meet, feel lust, and end up together.
I go into a Romance on the Go book expecting a very short, but complete, story. That is not what I got in this book. The above pretty much summarizes the entire plot, such as it was. The problem (for me) with this book is that we’re told they spend time together, getting to know each other, but we don’t see any of it. We see Quentin admiring how Nia is with his children, but we don’t see her with the children much.
I liked Nia because she really wanted to change her life – she was a model, but wants to move on to something else. I’m not exactly sure what her qualifications to work with children are, buuut I definitely bought into it. Quentin was dealing with the loss of his wife and the way she died (a tumor that took her quickly) would be devastating to anyone, but most definitely to an actual surgeon who’s trained to try to save people with tumors. Agnes – the office manager who hires Nia. I wish there’d been more of her, but I respect the limitations of space.
So – this is a quick read, but my main issue was we didn’t get to see the development of the romance. Still, the characters were likable and believable, which is always a plus. I’ll probably give Honey as an author another read …. Provided it isn’t in the ROTG line, that is. I think she’s got the talent to write good stories – she just needs the space to flesh the it out.
