When I quit the biggest boy band on the planet, I was supposed to get my life back.
It’s not that I wanted to leave the spotlight. I felt like I had to for my daughter. Her picture shouldn’t be splashed all over the tabloids.
I thought I could do this parenting thing on my own, but it’s obvious I need help. I just didn’t expect to find it in the form of a gorgeous guy I meet by chance.
I can put my attraction aside for my daughter’s sake. I’ve put my whole life on hold for her.
If only he wasn’t so tempting.
Working as a nanny is my backup to my backup plan. My first plan is fame, but something always holds me back.
When I randomly run into Ryder Kennedy and end up becoming his daughter’s nanny, I figure it’ll be a short-term thing.
But then Ryder finds out I can sing. He wasn’t ready to give up music, and now he’s found a new way to have it: through me. He wants to produce my demo and make me a star.
He says I was born to be in the spotlight, but I think I was born to run from it.
It doesn’t help that each day I’m with him and his daughter, the deeper I fall into fantasies of being part of their family. And not just as the nanny.
Lyric is an aspiring mucisian, going to auditions, trying to sign with a label and performing at a small bar on the weekends. He's also the part-time nanny for his brother's kid.
Ryder was one of the members of Eleven before they split up. He was a boy band member and he's used to being judged by that and have people just assume things about his character and personality.
That's exactly how he first met Lyric. He overheard him bitching to his nephew about how crappy was Eleven's music and how little talent all the members had.
However, they moved on from that very quickly and Lyric managed to score the babysitter position for Ryder's daughter. The attraction is there of course from the start and as time passes and they get to know each other better they become closer and finally they start a relationship. That sounds convenient for Lyric's career, right? Well, not so much, because Lyric is set on making it on his own and he doesn't accept any favors and no help at all from Ryder. They get into some pretty huge fights over that actually.
There are some hilarious and some adorable moments in this book as Ryder and Lyric interact with Kaylee. Harley from the first book made an appearance and he was a delight and also a little bit like a dog with a bone. He was relentless until he got what he wanted!
Spotlight was a nice addition to the series, and it whets our appetite for the third book, Denver and Mason's story.
* Hint - If you haven't read Thorned Heart yet give it a try and you'll find a very special someone making a guest appearance! *
