Unmanageable by Leslie McAdam Release Blitz

When he looks at me, it makes me long for things I can’t have… Like him.

I’ve never been romantic. Just ask my ex-wife.

Since she broke up with me, I get my needs met any time I want, without putting my heart on the line. Exactly how I like it.

But when she is called overseas and leaves me with our child, my bachelor lifestyle ends faster than you can say, “Daddy, I want a pony.”

I need help.

Problem is, help’s come in the form of an incredibly hot nanny.

My employee.

Who is much younger than me.

And also… a guy.

I watch Scott care for my kid and can’t help feeling like he clicks into place in her life.

When he looks at me, though… I get an entirely different feeling. One that makes me long for things I can’t have.

Like him.

Unmanageable is a contemporary m/m, age-gap romance about a starry-eyed nanny who wants hot-air balloon rides and singing telegrams and a grumpy single dad who most definitely does not.

Unmanageable is a stand-alone novel set in Sarina Bowen’s World of True North.

He’s my boss. Nothing more. Yes, he’s hot sexy boss, but I can ignore that.

Unmanageable is the third installment in the multi-author series set in the In Vino Veritas world. It can be read as a standalone without any prior information on this world.

Scott's love language is gifting or giving those he cares about things he thinks will make them happy. He is a huge romantic and wants to find love but after realizing his last relationship wasn't even a relationship, he finds himself lost. He's about to be evicted and needs income quick. When he interviews to be a nanny for a divorced man and his adorable daughter, Scott instantly notices how sexy Luke is, but he can't let it go any further since he's straight and his boss.

Luke thought moving away from his ex-wife and daughter was what was best for them. When Kira finds out she has an offer of her lifetime and will be gone for months, Luke moves back into his ex-wife's house to take care of his daughter. He realizes pretty quick he needs help and hires Scott.

Luke may be a little bitter about how his life is turning out and Scott just sees the world differently, but I love what these two bring out in each other. I adore Addi and love that she is such a huge part in this story.

Leslie McAdam is a new author to me but am definitely going to go back and read her prior book set in this world. I am intrigued by the characters she has created.

This is the third book in this series – but do go and catch up on the original Vino & Veritas collection because every book adds to the wonderful group of people living in Burlington, Vermont.

Luke knew he was bi before he married his wife, and whilst that was not the reason his marriage failed, he is very conscious that he doesn't do failure, and one failed attempt at a relationship is one too many. He therefore lives a life of work, work, work, and the odd hook-up to scratch an itch. When his ex-wife asks him to move back to look after their daughter whilst she goes off to cover a story in Myanmar, he cannot say no.

Scott has been in earlier books, and we know that he is still trying to find his place in the world, whilst struggling to manage to stay financially stable – often due to his misplaced and extravagant romantic gestures. He really comes into his own in this story, using his skills as an eldest brother of many siblings to become a lovely manny to Addison, the young daughter of the very hot, successful, older man, Luke.

These two men are thrown together to look after Addi, and to keep her from missing her mum, as well as keeping at bay any worry about the danger of the place she is visiting. It is hugely enjoyable to see them bond over their desire to give Addi a good, structured time, and to fight their intense chemistry. I loved how they fell so hard but behaved so carefully. They were caring and cautious, and yet it was clear that the draw would be too strong.

There were times where I worried that something terrible would happen overseas, but generally there was little angst and mostly great humour and anticipation. A really good addition to the series.



Thou shalt not date thy nanny…
