Series: Khalid Sheikhs #1
Published by Self-Published on May 20, 2021
In hopes of proving to his oldest brother he can do something responsible, playboy Sheikh Imran Khalid volunteers to find a suitable nanny for his niece and nephew. He’s a bit ashamed of how he’s wasted his life so far, with too much time spent partying, and is rather desperate to improve his image—especially to his brothers. American Sarah Jenner might just be the answer he’s looking for. She’s smart, good with the children, compassionate…and just happens to stir Imran’s blood like no one else. Even though he knows he should keep their relationship professional, the two are acutely aware of a growing attraction, one that Imran is having difficulty ignoring…
He’s her boss. He’s a sheikh. Sheikhs don’t end up with nannies except in the movies. No matter how many times Sarah reminds herself to be sensible, she just can’t help being attracted to Imran. He’s so sexy and nice and understanding. Falling for her boss would be monumentally stupid and Sarah is definitely not stupid. It’s her heart that seems to be the one that’s not listening, and after fighting it she finally gives in to her desire. Then she does the dreaded Google search and sees, in vivid color, just how much of a playboy Imran is. Is she just another notch in his belt? A meaningless dalliance with the nanny? Doubts flood her. And when the two face their biggest challenge, they’ll have to learn to trust one another—or end up alone.
Leslie North is a favorite of mine for when I need a quick read to settle my mind. The Sheikh’s Tempting Nanny was no exception to this rule. Sarah and Imran are both likable characters that make you want to know what they’re going to do next. Jamila and Hasan are hilarious, as are Ziad and Maryam. I found myself loving all of the characters in this book.
This book is paced quickly, has a little bit of steam but not too much, and has a fun storyline. It is perfect for when you need a quick read to take a break from heavier types of books – textbooks, horror, mystery, or fantasy. I loved this book and can’t wait to read the other two in the series.
