Review: Home With You by Shirlee McCoy

The Bradshaw brothers never dreamed they'd return to their hometown. But tragedy has brought them back together in Benevolence, Washington, where they’re finding generosity, surprising revelations—and unexpected love . . .  
Sullivan Bradshaw is in way over his head. A car crash killed his brother, Matthias, and critically injured his sister-in-law. It’s Sullivan's turn to care for the couple’s six children and the ancestral farm, but the die-hard bachelor and art professor is hardly family-man material. What he needs is the perfect nanny-miracle worker-saint. What he gets is pretty Rumer Truehart, a free spirit who will change everything he ever thought he wanted . . .

Rumer learned the hard way that nothing is for sure, much less forever. And she certainly  understands why Sullivan’s unhappy childhood makes him a strictly no-commitments kind of guy. But she can't help being drawn to this thoughtful, gentle man. And when trouble strikes, she’s determined to win his trust—and show him love can be a promise for keeps.

Terri's Thoughts

I had received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  Thank you.  This story came out at the end of February and I am just getting around to writing a review as life has gotten in the way of my reading time.

I went in to this story with somewhat low expectations.  The reason being is that the whole nanny-employer romance has been written a million times and I thought I had read them from every angle.  This story taught me not to judge a book by its cover (pardon the pun) as it soon showed me that there is still a fresh take on an old plot.

The main reason is the children.  Normally there is one or two super cute kids inserted in to the romance however in this case their were six.  These were six very different and all adopted children that had issues of their own.  This made the story more interesting for me as it really shifted the spotlight to them instead of Sullivan and Rumer and in my opinion this was a good thing.  It made their journey seem a little more natural and lets be honest was a refreshing change from the usual plot of attraction where we are subjected to numerous near kisses before submitting to their attraction and not much else.

This story taught me a lesson that you never really know what you are going to get until you read the story.  This is the second story I have read by McCoy and based on how I enjoyed this one, I really need to go and take a look at her other work.
