The Nanny with the Skull Tattoos - Elizabeth Barone ~Review in English~


Single dad Max isn’t looking for love—he only needs someone to help take care of his two-year-old daughter, Chloe. Or so he thinks. After being kicked out of his parents’ house, he’s determined to make it on his own. But juggling a full-time job, an undergrad program, and childcare is pretty much impossible. When his best friend jokingly suggests he post an ad for a live-in nanny on Craigslist, he goes for it. After all, he has nothing to lose… right? When artist Savannah quickly responds to his ad, Max is thrilled. Her resume is perfect and Chloe seems to like her, despite the slightly menacing tattoos decorating her arm. Savannah brings a light and warmth into his life that he never thought possible. Max hasn’t so much as dated since Chloe was born, but he’s willing to give it a shot with Savannah. There’s just one problem. Everything is perfect just the way it is. Even his daughter is happy. If he messed up things up with Savannah, how could he ever forgive himself?

"The Nanny with the Skull Tattoos" was a nice read with a nice story and I could definitely understand that Max falls in love with Savannah because she is really sweet and just lovable, I just couldn't understand why Savannah fell for Max because, well - he is not that much of a catch, I think.

Of course it is not easy to make ends meet when you're on your own and have to support a child as well while you're studying but the whole story wasn't convincing. I could understand that his parents wanted him to move out but I couldn't understand but the way it happend and the finality of it didn't make sense, at least in my eyes.

Then Savannah moves in with Max and Chloe and somehow I couldn't feel the emotions there or the attraction. Even when everything blows up, I felt really sorry for Savannah but I simply couldn't understand Max or his family and the way they act. Okay, I was mad at them because I liked Savannah but overall I wasn't particularly moved by the happenings.
On the whole the story and the characters lack some depth and even though it is a nice read, it left me a bit dissatisfied wanting for a bit more.
