He can fight anything…except his need for her.

Until her new job starts in September, buttoned-up elementary school teacher Laurel Harris is at loose ends and in need of cash. Fortunately her best friend’s older brother is a single dad and desperately needs a nanny. Or so she’s told. She doesn’t anticipate him being such a menacing, muscled, and undeniably gorgeous man…or that he has zero interest in hiring a nanny.

Micah Crane will do right by his young daughter, no matter the cost. And right now, that cost is juggling parenthood with long hours at his bar and working as an enforcer for a notorious crime boss. He doesn’t need another complication in his life, but the sweet, frustratingly opinionated little blonde hell-bent on caring for his daughter stirs his blood like no woman ever has.

All it takes is a moment of weakness to ignite the lust blazing between them. A moment that will unravel their self-control and unleash all of Micah’s darkest secrets…

I absolutely loved the sound of A Moment of Weakness – a hot, single father with a bit of danger in him falls for his daughter’s nanny? Yes please! I ended up really enjoying this book, even though it wasn’t quite what I expected. I wasn’t really sold on the hero in the beginning, but he grew more likable later on. Overall, Brooklyn Skye’s A Moment of Weakness is certainly an entertaining, sexy read I’d recommend.

Laurel Harris is looking for a job for the summer, and her best friend gets her one as a babysitter for Micah, her friend’s brother. What she doesn’t expect is for Micah to be a sexy, big, tattooed hunk of a man. Micah, on the other hand, doesn’t believe he needs a babysitter for his daughter, Shea, because he thinks he’s doing just fine as a single parent… even though he takes Shea with him to the bar he owns and has a side job as a mob enforcer. When he finally sees that maybe his daughter isn’t in the best environment, he reluctantly hires Laurel and has her stay in his home – which only makes the sparks between them fly hotter than ever.

Micah was a bit too hot-and-cold in the beginning for my taste – it was pretty off-putting. One minute he’d be all over Laurel, the chemistry between them hot-as-hell, and the next he’d be cold and distant. This grew better later on in the book though, thankfully, as the two start falling for each other. I adored Laurel – she’s a sweetheart of a character, and I loved the way she was with Micah’s daughter. The three of them together is honestly the cutest thing ever!

A Moment of Weakness is incredibly well-written. I’m excited for more from Brooklyn Skye, since this book seems to be the first in the Boston Alibi series. The author definitely knows how to write a steamy book with some intense scenes. Overall, I’d definitely recommend A Moment of Weakness for those who like quick, sexy, satisfying reads.
