WHY I READ IT
The blurb had me wanting more.
WHAT I RATED IT
WHAT IT’S ABOUT
I wasn’t supposed to fall in love with the nanny.
When my wife left, she took the illusion of happiness with her, and I’ve been caught in a free fall ever since. For nine long months, I’ve been fighting to figure out how to be a single dad, how to be alone.
For nine long months, I’ve been failing.
When Hannah walked through the door, I took my first breath since I’d found myself on my own. She slipped into our lives effortlessly, showing me what I’ve been missing all these years. Because Hannah made me smile when I thought I’d packed the notion of happiness away with my wedding album.
She was only supposed to be the nanny, but she’s so much more.
The day my wife left should have been the worst day of my life, but it wasn’t. It was when Hannah walked away, taking my heart with her.
A Little Too Late is a stunning, yet heartbreaking look at falling in love at the absolute worst time. It’s the gorgeous story of two hearts just out of each other’s reach. Staci Hart is a relatively new author to me, and whenever starting something unfamiliar, I’m a bit apprehensive. But this story captivated me from the very beginning and kept me lost in their world until the very end.
Hannah didn’t have the best experience at her last au pair job and was nervous about meeting Charlie and his two young children. But when Charlie opens the door, she is immediately comforted by his trusting smile. Charlie had been dead inside since his soon to be ex-wife broke his trust, and along with it, his faith in woman and relationships. Even with all their baggage, Hannah and Charlie are drawn to each other. I loved all the stolen glances and lingering touches. I was completely wrapped up in their lives, wanting so badly to see what would happen each day. I wished for their relationship to progress to the next level, but their histories made everything more difficult than it should be.
A Little Too Late is an intense, emotional meeting of two souls destined to break through the roadblocks in their path. This was one of those stories that I wanted to savor. It was beautifully written and engaging. I am looking forward to working my way through Hart’s backlist.
