You Cant Kiss the Nanny Brady Banks is the 2nd book in the Kingsmen Football Stars. Loved this as an audiobook. Cindy Kay and Aaron Shedlock did an amazing job with the narration’s and they had the smoothest transitions in between characters.
This book just had all the tropes. I love a good sports, celebrity, workplace, boss/nanny, forced proximity, single dad romance.
Brady Banks Is a single dad, and a WR for the Kingsman who happens to embark on a one night stand, where names were not exchanged.
Fast forward a 6 months and now Violet Is now the new nanny.
Once they reunited the shock was palpable. The instant chemistry, the banter, the back and forth, while trying to resist each other for Little Theo’s sake. It was a true test and then they failed. They tried to keep it casual, no strings attached until it literally blew up in their faces. They fell for each other. I loved the family and friendship dynamic. The banter with the guys was a good comedic relief. Little Theo was just so sweet. Hannah, Theo’s mom, had a great co parenting relationship with Brady. Which was nice, the story was very light angst. Great audio listen! Highly recommend
It’s the single dad and the nanny with a side of second chance romance trope. There is something so appealing about a really good single dad, and Brady Banks is definitely a great dad. Violet is a really great nanny and there is something very appealing about a woman who seems to adore your kid. This audiobook is light and fun and helped distract me from a really difficult experience in my own life. Both characters are written as three dimensional characters who had experienced losses that colored their decisions and willingness to take risks in relationships. The chemistry between these characters is really hot and steamy and they definitely connected more than just physically. It was a classic Piper Rayne rom-com and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to listen. The narrators were perfect for their roles and did an excellent job reading their respective POVs. I encourage anyone who is a fan of a romantic comedy to listen to this audiobook as well as the preceding book in the series. I am voluntarily submitting this review after listening to an advanced complementary copy of this audiobook.
This book and the feels are a thing. You Can’t Kiss The Nanny Brady Banks is witty and fun but it’s also a story about two people who have been hurt in life. Her from a few not so honest trustworthy exs and him a mom who abandoned him as a child. Each of those scars affect how they deal with their relationship and give us some delicious twists that kept me trapped in the book until I finished. The narrators did a fabulous job bringing the characters to life and making it fun to listen too.
Highly recommend to all lovers of sports themed romance stories and heated characters exchanges.
5 Her New Boss is a Surprise Stars!!
I absolutely love Violet and Brady!!! When the book opens we’re dropped into a scene that was filled with heat! Little did I know that the next time we see these two people again it’ll be because she’s the new nanny to his little boy… let the fireworks begin!!
Brady is a man that focuses on his son and football in that order. When he finds himself in need of a nanny, little did he expect to meet the hottest woman he’s ever been with to walk in his door… their connection is still on point!! But most importantly is Violet’s connection with his son Theo. And even though they tell each other they can’t do anything with each other because she’s his nanny, there’s only so much will power when it comes to the person that literally rocked your world!
I found myself totally engaged with this story thanks in part to the wonderful duet narration by Cindy Kay and Aaron Shedlock. They brought so much to this story. Especially when it comes to Violet’s family… and they’re a doozy that’s for sure!
There were moments of emotion that tugged at my heart whether it was when Theo was sad or when Violet’s family didn’t support her. And then there were moments of me laughing out loud when Brady is with his teammates or his parents… especially his Mom… she’s who everyone needs as their mom with her openness on so many levels!
With each book of this new series I’m loving the Kingsman Football Stars more and more. I’m a huge fan of sports romances, especially when it comes to football so I’m devouring each book as they’re being released!
PERFORMANCE REVIEW: Outstanding 5+ STARS
Cindy Kay & Aaron Shedlock made a great team not only bringing this story to life, but also performing the dual narration flawlessly. Dual narration is not an easy feat and more often than not, in my listening experience, it doesn’t come across as seamless as one would hope and can really bring the enjoyment of an audio book down a notch or two. I heard nothing but flawless dialogue between Cindy & Aaron and it just catapulted my experience with this story tenfold! WELL DONE!
#FunFact: About 5 years ago or so I read one of my favorite Piper Rayne books and also one of my favorite female leads of all time. Coincidentally, she just happened to be the heroine of said book and her name was Lennon Hart, now Banks. When I read the title “You Can't Kiss the Nanny, Brady Banks”, I didn’t immediately put it together until I did and then, gaaaaaaah, my heart did a little jig!! I immediately stopped listening to Brady’s story and jumped back to Jasper & Lennon, and then started again with Brady’s story and it was three days of utter bliss and joy for me! If you haven’t yet read ”Mad About the Banker”, do yourselves a favor and do it soon. The joy it will bring to your heart is immeasurable. #trust
But I digress (lol), about this book … Since I’m very familiar with Brady’s childhood backstory and you may not be, this may sound vague but I loved the choice this author duo made in making Brady a single dad because, reasons. *wink* It gave the story a ’circle of life’ and ‘déjà vu’ quality that warmed my heart and endeared me to the journey instantly!
I can’t say I’m a fan of the ultimate conflict between Brady & Violet but at the same time, it was real and relatable to Violet’s character and her background, and I have to give props to the authors for not throwing in drama for drama’s sake and instead having a dramatic plot-point true to the character and the situation, for her. Her being Violet. So much about Violet broke my heart and made me want to reach into the story and constantly hug her. I just … ugh, just read the story!
If you’re a Piper Rayne fan already, you’re obviously not going to miss this book (lol) but if you’re new to this duo and reading this, I hope you give them a chance with this story because it was fun and sexy, swoony and feely, heartwarming more so than heartbreaking and ridiculously entertaining! It’s an all-around great story!
You Can’t Kiss the Nanny, Brady Banks, an Audiobook by Piper Rayne is the story of Brady and Violet. They had a wonderful anonymous night…no names. He looked for her…to no avail. Now, he needs a nanny for his son, Theo. Then he discovers his new nanny is none other than her!!!
This story was fun, witty, endearing, touching, with plenty of steam! This was such a wonderful feel-good story that kept me smiling even hours after I finished it!!! Great characters that just embraced my heart….
This Audiobook was excellently duet narrated by Cindy Kay and Aaron Shedlock. They somehow manage to create the proper atmosphere and intent of the characters…bringing a wonderful story to an even higher level! Loved everything about this Audiobook!!!
I am volunteering to leave a review for an Advance Reader Copy of this Audiobook.
You can't kiss the nanny, Brady Banks. Even if she was the one-night stand you haven't been able to get out of your mind for months!
But of course, kissing the nanny is exactly what Brady Banks does! And Violet, the nanny, loves kissing him back! There is so much sexual tension simmering between these two, and it's just compounded a hundred times over by the fact that they had a one-night stand months ago and are trying to ignore the undeniable chemistry between them!
This story is sexy and fun, a little bit forbidden, and a whole lot of steamy. Aaron Shedlock and Cindy Kay did a wonderful job with this duet narration (which I've decided is the best narration of all!).
Brady is a great dad, and Violet is wonderful with Theo. And Brady and his ex, Hannah, have a wonderful relationship co-parenting their son. I loved that, rather than the meddling ex-wife trope. Instead, we have Violet's meddling mom! Seriously, she drove me bonkers. But I loved Brady's mom, Lennon, and dad, Jasper, and hope we see more of them as owners of the Kingsmen in future books!
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
You Can't Kiss the Nanny, Brady Banks by Piper Rayne is a single dad sports romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Aaron Shedlock and Cindy Kay. This is the second book in the Kingmen Football Stars Series.
This is the third book of Piper's that I have read, and it won't be my last. I really enjoyed the relationship that bloomed between Brady and Violet. I liked that we got both of their points of views throughout the book. It really brought the story to life.
I can't wait for the next book in the series Over My Brother's Dead Body, Chase Andrews to be released on April 4, 2023.
Aaron and Cindy did a great job on the narration. I look forward to listening to more of their work in the future.
I would recommend this book if you like sports romances, single dad romances, nanny romances, or contemporary romance.
I absolutely loved this story. I'm a sucker for a single dad romance and this one was perfect. Brady was seriously hot as a single dad football star. I thought Aaron Shedlock and Cindy Kay did a perfect job of bringing Brady & Violet's story to life, narrated in duet which for me made this even better.
Brady is doing a wonderful job of co-parenting with Theo's mother Hannah, but when Hannah has to go out of the country for work for a few months, Brady has no choice but to hire a nanny with training camp about to start. He never expects the woman who walks through his door to be the one he can't seem to forget after their one night together a few months ago. He has no idea how he is supposed to keep his hands off of her.
Violet hasn't forgotten the hot guy she had an incredible night with but she wasn't looking for anything at that moment. She was just trying to figure life out again after finding out her ex was cheating on her. Needless to say she is a bit wary of men right now. But now working for the man she can't get out of her mind is proving to be very difficult. Not only is she slowly falling for Theo, she's also falling for Brady and that wasn't supposed to happen.
These two were seriously hot together...I'm surprised by earbuds didn't start smoking a few times. But I also really loved the bond that Violet had with Theo, he was such a cute little boy. There wasn't any other woman drama which sometimes can be the case with sports romance. This was just a great story about two people who really had a great connection trying to figure out how to navigate the possibility of a new relationship.
After the way this story ended, I am definitely excited for the next book.
