The Nanny Factor! Is there something more going on between Actor Kingston Grier and his new nanny? Stay tuned…
Kingston: Who knew it would be such a challenge finding a nanny who could focus on my daughter without getting sidetracked by trying to get into my bed? I can’t even make eye contact without them thinking I’m flirting. I’m not.
Until Briar arrives, and finally I have a nanny who’s there for Zoe. But why does this Mary Poppins have to be so damn hot?
Briar: My divorce left me with more than my share of trust issues. Not that I’m looking at my new boss that way. Kingston might be a Hollywood hunk, but the guy has the personality of a potato. His daughter couldn’t be more different. One look into her doe eyes, and I am in love.
Somehow Kingston and I go from barely speaking to talking all night long. And our attraction becomes impossible to deny. Just when everything’s finally going right, intimate pictures of us are leaked and the fallout is insane. When I signed up for this job, I knew I’d do anything to protect Zoe—I just never expected how much I’d want to fight for King.
Fighting for King is the story of a Hollywood heartthrob and his nanny. Kingston is a superhero (in the movies), but being a single parent isn’t really easy when you have a job like his. Its also difficult to find a nanny who isn’t an aspiring actress or hoping to be the next Mrs. Grier.
Briar is recently divorced and drowning in student loan debt. Taking a job as a nanny means way more money than she makes as a preschool teacher. She adores Zoe, but King is a surly, grumpy jerk. Until he isn’t. King was so worried about nannies trying to seduce him he missed the danger of him falling for the nanny.
Both King and Briar have a lot of baggage to deal with. Add a cute but demanding toddler to the mix and you have a lot going on. Despite King being a major grump, I liked these two! Their story isn’t an easy one, but you can’t not fall for them! I appreciate the author didn’t go with a miscommunication or similar trope. This was more mature than that!
