The Perfect Mistake | Olivia Hayle

Hiring my little sister’s best friend as the new nanny for my kids? Big mistake.

Isabel is fifteen years too young, too kind, and far too attractive for this to be anything but a problem. Nannying requires her to move in, living close enough to reach out and grab… Not that I would. I’m old enough to know better.

She’s a professional ballerina recovering from an injury, and I’m the CEO of a multibillion-dollar conglomerate. She needs a job. I need a nanny. It’s a simple win-win.

Wrong. It’s sheer torture. Coming home late to find her curled up on the couch. To see her smile at me and ask how my day was. She’s beautiful, and always around, and the thoughts I’m having soon turn inappropriate.

But that life is behind me. My wife died years ago, and I can’t handle another relationship. Can’t handle the complications, the feelings, or the inevitable pain.

Even if Isabel is a temptation too sweet to resist. Kissing her is addictive… and soon I can’t keep my hands to myself or stay on my side of the penthouse.

It’s easy to forget things like age gaps and fears in the heat of passion. But us together is a mistake… even if it quickly becomes my favorite one.

This is one of the absolute best age gap nanny romances I’ve read in the past year! When I first started getting into romance, I steered clear of billionaire heroes after reading a few who were straight up obnoxious and over the top. Alec is absolutely swoon-worthy and full of a goodness that makes me want to read more of her billionaire heroes!

The fifteen year age gap gives Alec and Isabel their own unique character arc, challenges, and changes. My heart immediately went out to Alec for what he has experienced as a widow and single father to his children. He hides his heart from fear, but is actually hiding it with the veil of responsibilities. Learning to release that fear is one of the most heart wrenching and devastatingly beautiful moments.

Isabel’s dreams were wrapped up in becoming a prima ballerina, but come to a devastating end when she suffers a hip injury, thus putting an end to her career as well. Having a dream just out of reach at the edge of your fingertips, only to have it ripped away with no chance of recovery is a world-shattering moment.

This book kept me fully invested as I wondered if the stars were going to align and give these two a true go at the beautiful love they had between them. If you love the angst, push-and-pull of a hard-fought love, then don’t sleep on this one!

About the Author

Olivia loves billionaire heroes despite never having met one in person. Taking matters into her own hands, she creates them on the page instead. Stern, charming, cold or brooding, so far she’s never met a (fictional) billionaire she didn’t like.

A voracious reader of romance, Olivia picked up the pen a few years back and what followed was nothing short of a love affair of her own. Now she spends her days giggling at the steamy banter she’s writing or swooning at their happily-ever-afters.

Smart and sexy romance—those are her lead themes.
