Liam

The moment Sadie Matthews walks through the daycare center door, I feel my world tilt in her direction. Again. I fell for her when I was fourteen, and I'm still not over her. Problem: she still thinks of me as a teen she used to babysit. But I've learned a few things about pleasing a woman in the last fifteen years. I can't wait to show her how good it could be. I need to move quickly before I lose her again. This is more than a game to me, but I still plan to win.

Sadie

I've just survived the worst year of my life. As a single mom of twin toddlers, I don't have time for a man. I barely have time to finish a thought. Who knew that Liam McAllister would grow up to be so devastating? He's everything my husband was not: tall, built, and willing to have a tea party with my girls. 

I can't possibly get involved with him. He's too young for me. Too handsome. But he's so persuasive...

I’m not sure I could have gotten past the idea of dating a kid I used to babysit. It had a huge ick factor for me. But, this was handled really well, and the whole babysitter issue is forgotten pretty quickly.

Liam was so fucking cute. The way he treated the toddlers he supervised was inventive and fun and had me laughing out loud. It’s no wonder the kids at the daycare adored him. And he was relentless in his attempt to get Sadie to see him as a man and not the geeky kid she used to watch over the summers. 

Sadie, got the king of all assholes in her ex-husband. I wanted to hate the woman he was seeing just as much as I hated him, but really, I just felt as sorry for her as I did for Sadie. The struggle between how she thinks she should feel about Liam and how she actually does feel about Liam is hard to reconcile but Liam is definitely all man and there really isn’t anything about him that should remind her of their past. 

I’m not sure how she held out for as long as she did. Why would any woman be caught dead with a man like her ex when there are almost perfect men like Liam there just waiting for you to recognize their awesomeness?
