Book Review: 'His Love' by M.O. Kenyan


Nanny/companion romances are one of my favorite sub-genre in romance novels, so I never miss the chance to indulge in one when on crosses my path. His Love is a relatively short story, but it is packed with everything from sex to industrial espionage. And in this case I have to say that “less is more” and “keep it short and simple” would have a better effect in the end.
His Love flows nicely and the plot is well developed. In the technical sense, the story is crafted nicely and it is definitely not a boring read. Unfortunately I had a problem with some other things in this book.  I had a lot of question marks — “what just happened, why, how?” But what I really missed from the story are these two particular and crucial moments, first I cannot pinpoint when the hero and heroine fell in love and second it is not quite clear how and when the hero restored his relationship with his daughter. On the other hand there is this one beautiful scene that melted my heart and shattered it into hundred pieces. Because of that powerful scene, I did not gave up on His Love. The other thing I liked in this story is that the author stepped out from the typical default frame of the nanny story – in which nannies are usually poor girls, without social support and no life experience. The heroine, Rayne, is everything but that, and because of that uniqueness His Love is worth reading.
If you are looking for a quick and different read featuring a nanny, new beginnings, redemptions, fast love and hot sex, look no futher.
