Book Review

Cade Eaton is desperate to find the right nanny, but no one in his small town of Chestnut Springs is good enough. That is until he meets Willa Grant. She’s a city girl visiting her best friend in town, but she quickly proves to be the best person for the job. At first, Cade resists. After all, Willa is thirteen years younger than him, what could they possibly have in common? But watching her with his son Luke may be enough to convince him to take down some of his walls and let her in.

Heartless is told in alternating first-person perspectives between Cade and Willa. I loved every minute of this story! It’s a classic example of the grumpy and sunshine trope. Cade is a gruff cowboy with trust issues. Willa is a vibrant city girl who comes crashing into Cade’s life unexpectedly. Willa has such warmth and charisma. I love how Willa is so bold and speaks her mind. I had such a great time watching her charm Cade. She gets entirely under his skin and their banter was great to watch! 

Although I loved both main characters, my favorite character in the book was Cade’s son Luke. He was so sweet and innocent. It’s impossible not to fall in love with him. He might be my favorite character in the series!

If you have not read Flawless, I would recommend starting there because the characters from that book play a prominent role in Heartless. If you are a fan of Flawless, I think you will love Heartless! 

Thank you to Elsie Silver and Social Butterfly PR for the advanced copy! All opinions are my own.


Synopsis from Goodreads

He’s gruff, a little rough around the edges. But broad-shouldered ranchers with calloused hands and filthy mouths are this city girl’s kryptonite. So who am I to resist?

But it’s in our quiet moments together that he softens. It’s when he takes care of me that I realize his hardened exterior is just a façade. It’s when I watch him go all sweet with his little boy that I really fall for him.

Someone convinced him once that his best wasn’t good enough. But I’ve never felt more cherished than I do in his arms.

My contract may say this arrangement is only for two months.

But my heart says this is forever.
