On the Line (Milwaukee Dragons #1)
If you’re Carrie Herron, the answer is all of the above. First Carrie starts exchanging steamy text messages with the sexy single dad she meets in line at the grocery store. Then she lands a job—and a bedroom—as the live-in nanny for the daughter of the Milwaukee Dragons’ newest star. But when Carrie shows up for work and realizes that they’re actually the same guy, she has no choice but to try to keep things professional. After all, Seth Chamberlain is her boss now. Her chiseled, charismatic, oh-so-tempting boss. . . .
After getting traded from Houston to Milwaukee, Seth’s having a tough time keeping his head in the game, let alone setting up his daughter in a brand-new city. So if the only nanny his daughter will tolerate while he’s on the road is the gorgeous, cosplay-loving redhead he’s had his eye on, well, so be it. Surely he can resist Carrie until football season is over. But with her knowing glances and kissable lips driving him wild, Seth must decide whether he’s ready to put everything on the line.
This book started off so strong with me. I loved how it started! It was funny! I loved all the back and forth texting! I even loved how they were both surprised when they unexpectedly meet each other again.
But as I read on… it really started to get to me.
All the dancing around of should they or shouldn’t they took a toll on me. They would mess around and then immediately right after say they can’t do it again. They would spend days after obsessing about each other. Thinking about each other sexually.
It was seriously killing the mood with me.
When they did finally get together they had to keep it a secret. I was ok with that in the beginning. But… Seth’s daughter really made it hard for me. I totally understand putting your kids first. But… I just didn’t like how his daughter acted!
Overall this was an ok read for me.

Liz has been concocting stories as long as she can remember, and from the beginning they involved two people falling in love.
When she’s not writing, she spends her time rooting for the UW Badgers and the Green Bay Packers (or yearning for the return of football season), cross-stitching and embroidering sassy sayings or nerdy characters (Wonder Woman is her favorite), and drinking too much Diet Coke.
She lives in Milwaukee, WI, with her husband, two kids, two cats, and a turtle.
