Would you listen to Nanny and the Professor again? Why?
Yes. I enjoyed Nanny and the Professor very much. I loved the interaction between the adults and the kids. And I liked finding out how the love relationship developed.
Which scene was your favorite?
The opening scene was funny...when "nanny" was caught up in the tree by her new boss.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I liked finding out about the characters' pasts, what happened to them to make them act the way they do.
Any additional comments?
This was a light, fun book that I'll listen to again.

I’m going to make a confession: there is no better way to relax after a long day or week than with a more ‘traditional’ contemporary romance: knowing that there is a guaranteed happy ending, where the characters and the writer’s skill combine to give you that perfect escape. This is where Donna Fasano excels, creating stories that everyone can relate to, merging romantic tension and interest with family and work concerns, real life issues, conflicts and conversations that could (and may have) happened in your very own living room.
Nanny and the Professor is another winner that has everything that I enjoy in a romance: great characters that have just enough baggage and flaws to be interesting, realistic family issues, sexual tension, humor and even a secret. Putting voice to these elements and bringing the story alive is Laura Jennings. I’ve said it before: you can hear the smile in her voice, and she incorporates minor differences in tone, pitch and pacing to distinguish the characters, all of which enhance the words that she is reading.
There are no great surprises here – except one. If you think that you could never enjoy a more ‘traditional’ contemporary romance that is set in a town near you, this story will change your mind, and leave you smiling and relaxed.
I received an AudioBook version from the author for purpose of honest review for the Heard Word at I am, Indeed. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

Just as well this book was bought at 40 % off. Because I simply can't imagine what possessed Audible to include this book in her collections. IMHO this book is one big sugarsweet pink slush from beginning to end. Full of clichés, and presented with rather lifeless narration, at that.
The plot (uneducated nanny falls in love with university professor (and vice versa)) could have made a sweet story, - but the banal, flat and cliché-filled prose conveying this very predictable story destroys it all. Sorry.
