Title & Author: Heartless by Elsie Silver 
My rating: 5/5
Publisher: Piatkus
Publication date: 6th April 2023

Working as a nanny for the world's grumpiest single dad should have been simple.
Except I can't keep my eyes off him. And he can't keep his hands off of me.

Cade Eaton is thirteen years older than me and barely looks my way. Until I get him in the hot tub one night for a game of truth or dare. Then all bets are off - and so are our clothes.

He's gruff, a little rough around the edges, and it turns out broad-shouldered ranchers with filthy mouths are this city girl's kryptonite. So who am I to resist?

But in our quiet moments together, he softens, and I start to realise his hardened exterior is just a façade. Someone once convinced him that his best wasn't good enough. Yet I've never felt more cherished than I do in his arms.

My contract may say this arrangement is only for two months.

But my heart says this is forever.

As soon as I finished Flawless, I went straight into Heartless because I was so excited to read Cade's book. And oh my goodness, "Daddy Cade" Eaton is the one.

Willa, Summer's best friend, really made me laugh during her text exchanges in Flawless so I was well prepared for the humour in Heartless.

This book follows Rhett's older brother Cade who owns a ranch in Chestnut Springs. He is a single dad since his ex-wife Talia left them both when son Luke was two-years-old. With his current babysitter getting older, he is hiring a nanny. But Cade is the grumpiest man alive and hates everyone that the family interviews. Summer has the best solution - her friend Willa.

Willa is hilarious right from the start and this is definitely for the age gap (Willa is 25) and grumpy x sunshine fans. It also has a trope that I hate (that I will not share because of spoilers) but I still gave this book five stars.

Willa's feelings towards Cade and his son Luke were handled beautifully, with Willa being the type of person Cade needed. Someone to help put himself first for once. Oh and the spice is top notch.
