Waiting on Wednesday (3/26/14) - Burn For You by Marquita Valentine

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  It's just a quick look at the books we're all looking forward to.  This week I am looking forward to Burn for You (Boys of the South #5) by Marquita Valentine. 
Title: Burn For You (Boys of the South #5)
Age Group: New Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 21, 2014
Book Description:
Beau Montgomery is not the typical single dad for three reasons:
1.      He’s rich and famous.
2.      He needs a nanny, like yesterday.
3.      He has no idea if eight month old, Mia, is actually his daughter.

Only, number three doesn’t matter to him at all, because he’s determined to give up everything to be a standup dad, including racing, partying, and his very favorite vice, women. Until that is, he’s invited to race at Monaco—a dream he’s always had. Now, all those things he’d sworn to give up are at his fingertips, including the very inconveniently hot nanny, Landry Basnight, who’s travelling with him.

Landry Basnight is the typical college graduate for three reasons:

1.      She’s broke and in debt up to her eyeballs.
2.      She needs a job, like yesterday.
3.      Nothing exciting ever happens in her life.

Only, number three is about to change, because she’s been hired by Beau Montgomery, son of NASCAR Racing Royalty. Landry’s parents are big fans of the Montgomerys, while she couldn’t care less—all she wants to do is make a dent in her student loan bill. However, that doesn’t stop her from falling in love with her little charge, nor does it make it easier to resist Beau’s charms.  In fact , she doesn’t resist at all.

Lines are crossed and then forgotten as Beau and Landry grow closer, but when Beau’s ex-girlfriend, the woman he’s loved since high school, and Mia’s mother shows up, everything starts to fall apart for the new couple.

Will their love weather the storm, or will Beau abandon Landry for the family he’s always wanted?
 ** Burn For You can be read as a stand-alone**

  2. I'm picky about the NA I read but I think it's so cool that Beau is a single dad! I haven't seen that come up in the NA books I've looked at yet, and it would be such a different perspective that I'm completely unfamiliar with. Plus the added bonus of plenty of swoons, I'm sure :)

    Great pick!
