    4.25 Stars A story full of broken people and families. A story dealing with healing and loving. It was so adorable the relationship Lanie had with Dex's son Tate and how she pulled him out of sadness and got him to live again...bit that wasn't all the healing that took place. Lanie had her own demons from the past that Dex helped her overcome. This was sweet and had all the aww moments! 4.25 Stars A story full of broken people and families.

    2.5/3 stars. I know many enjoyed this one, but I found myself skimming a lot of pages. The writing style did not work for me.

This book was heartfelt, sexy, romantic, cute, tragic and freaking adorable. I am in love with the entire cast of characters. The end was a bombshell (but I will say I saw it coming). I can’t wait to read everyone’s books. My favorite parts were the texts between them all. These group of friends are more then anyone could wish for, for a family. They made this story that much better. I am definitely head over heels for Dex. Oh man did he raise the bar for men. He is everything any girl needs. Swooooon!! I didn’t expect the depth I got from him and his kids are the cherry on the top. Laine is Wonder Woman. Yes, she tends to run but given her past she is a fighter. I’m in awe of her. I love how she jumped in and took on a strange family just because she is a good person. I teared up many times in this book. It was just so right. The most perfect of love stories. I love how they mended each other. How they shared scars. For being her debut novel this author hit it out of the park. Great job! This is a MUST read!! **I received this book as an ARC and in return gave my honest review**

One thing I don't get is why the hell Laine wasn't taken away from her mother when she was a kid, sounds like Julia's parents would have taken her in. The kids in this are fab, in particular Tate. The group chat, where Dex kept updating everyone on how he was trying to win Lainey over had me smiling a fair bit.

Now Dex is struggling, his just lost the 3rd nanny and his secretary might quit any minute. And then in walks Lanie Heart. And she just took over. From the minute she walked into his house everything just seemed right. His son who has been having a hard time, and hasn't spoken since his mom left has more life and his babies are blossoming. But Lanie has some issues and its going to be an uphill convincing her that she belongs with him and his kids. Especially as she is adamant she is only staying for a year. Lanie Heart has not has the easiest life. It seems just as things are going well something else happens. Now a year later after she was brutally attacked she needs to get her life in order. So she takes a job as a nanny for Dexter Cross. From the moment she met him and his kids she lost her heart and knew that walking away after a year was going to be tough. But she couldn't stay, she was broken already she couldn't do anything to mess up this family, no matter how much she's already in love with Dexter Cross or his kids. I fell in love with Dexter and his kids and when I met Lanie I knew it was gong to be a good story. My heart broke for her and what she went through and she deserved this family. Dexter and what he did to convince her that she belonged with them was just so romantic I couldn't get enough. Don't event talk about his amazing friends and Lanie's friend Julia. And that group chat was just epic. I can't wait to read all their stories. Read on behalf of Fay's Corner

His romantic, over-the-top gestures to show Lanie that she is the love of his life had me laughing and crying at the same time. His crew of helpers, including her best friend and pseudo sister Julia, are so loyal, lovable and sometimes crazed. They stand by Dex as he works hard to convince Lanie that she is worthy of love, that she is loved and that she can stay with him and his kids. Lanie is a survivor. She survived the pain and neglect of her disinterested and nasty mother, as well as a horrifying physical attack by a drug addled father of a child she was protecting. Through it all, she had the support and love of Julia, Julia’s parents and the people of her small hometown. Which is why Dex didn’t hesitate to try to win them over in his bid to claim Lanie’s heart. It did take long for Dex to realize that he loved the beautiful, sassy and so capable nanny he hired to care of his three kids. Right from the beginning, Lanie showed his kids more love care and devotion than their mother ever could. You can’t help but to fall in love with Dex and Lanie as well as their crazy and wild support crew. And Tate, Dex’s son ....he will steal your heart, just like he stole Lanie’s. The ending of this story left me beaming with tears streaming down my face. This book will always hold a special place in my heart. I can’t wait to read Julia and Trevor’s story!

    Good read. There are a lot of characters in this book so I expect there will be several more to follow to build upon the story. This was a fast easy read but it did touch gently on some serious subjects. I am interested enough to give book 2 a read.

    To start, if I'm being honest, this book is more of a 3.5/5 stars for me, but it feels unfair to round down, so 4 stars it is. My main issue with this book is that I am a nanny. That may not seem like an issue to others (and honestly I thought I might be able to handle it), but I read this book like doctors watch ER, cringing the entire time at the unprofessionalism of both parties.

My main issue with this book is that I am a nanny.

They way he yelled during the interview, the flirting before she even had the job, the erection joke on day one of her job... all things that made my stomach turn. That said, it's not dissimilar to how CEOs must feel reading about themselves sexually harassing their assistants in romances novels so... I realize that these issues are a personal preference and I don't feel comfortable knocking off stars for it. So, other nannies, just consider this is a warning that this book is not for you. Moving on, the rest of this book was pretty good. The writing was smooth, engaging, and entertaining. I think the insta-lust (quickly shifting to insta-love) will appeal to a lot of readers, although it moved a little quick for me, and it has some serious 50 Shades vibes with the older, wealthy hero who wants to care for the young, troubled heroine in his life, but it lacked the BDSM element, so don't worry about that. Still, you're going to have a hero who does what he wants whatever he wants (including full on backgrounds checks into the heroine's past without her permission, visiting her hometown to speak with her family without telling her, etc). The heroine is strong--she was a social worker before she became a nanny--and there are many instances of her showcasing that strength against bullies, protecting her charges, and standing up for herself. As a bonus, the secondary characters are entertaining with lots of funny group conversations as they attempt to help our hero woo his woman. They're all worthy of their own books, which they'll surely have. If large/in charge wealthy heroes and strong, but submissive heroines in need of protecting, paired with lots of drama, are your thing then you'll enjoy reading Avery Mitchell's Cross My Heart.

Though we cover some serious issues with loss and abandonment, verbal abuse and neglect, the story is full of fun light and airy too. My emotions ranged all around throughout this book but the most evident was the giggles. Dexter is at his wits end, running his company while being the single father to a young boy and baby twins. His wife just up and left him to look after everything. He has a wonderful support system of friends and family to help him through but he really needs a nanny to help with the day to day. His assistant lines up yet another interview. He was not ready for the storm that is Lanie. Lanie has decided she need to move on. The recovery from her horrible night has not been an easy one. She is so thankful for her best friend and her parents who have always been there for her. Thinking she is playing it safe she decided to move closer to their summer home and find work. A fresh start. When she walking in to her interview for the nanny position, it is a disaster. She rolls in like a storm and gets it all smoothed out, then worries that she might have overstepped. The draw between Dexter and Lanie is evident from the very beginning. Great chemistry and loads of tension. Will Dexter be willing to take the next step? Can he convince Lanie that she is absolutely loveable and worth the risk? Will the MLM and the help of his friends make it work? Looking forward to more from this new author.

    I’m pretty sure this is the debut novel from this author...at least, based on what I’m finding, it is. And that blows me away because WOW. I didn’t want to put it down!

Regardless, it’s the first foray I’ve had into this author’s mind and now I want more. Dexter doesn’t believe in love, and he’s got the scars on his heart to prove it.

All Dex has to do is convince Lanie to make the leap. And he’ll pull out all the stops and involve anyone he can to help maker her his. These two led me through a minefield of loss, longing, love, and recovery from guilt that couldn’t have felt more perfect for them to endure. I just want to know what the deal is with Trevor and Julia next...

    Dexter and Lanie both have wounded hearts that they are set never to allow someone to hurt again.

    This story was funny, heartwarming and heartbreaking but Dexter and Laine were great characters. The beginning of the story when Laine and Dexter meet for her interview is priceless and I just loved how it progressed from there. This is not all hearts and flowers there are some serious issues here but it’s done really tastefully. The book is a standalone but it looks like it will be connected to new stories and I can’t wait.

I started out feeling bad for Lainie, but you already knew she had overcome so much in her life, that she was going to do amazing. She rolled into Dexter's life in a way he would never have expected, and wowed him and his kids. You seriously need to read the book to find out what she did for Tate and the family. I love Dexter's group of guys and Julia and all the text's to MLM. It may not have worked in all situations, but it was perfect in this one. I was so happy to see that I was so correct about something about Julia. Dexter may now be the top of my book boyfriend list, and honestly this has to be in the top 10 of books I've read this year. Dexter did so many amazing things, but he wasn't perfect and that makes him even more endearing. I can not wait to read the next book in this series. This is Book 1 in a series, and I for one can't wait to get more of all of these amazing characters! I look forward to reading many more books by you Avery Maxwell! Warning - this book very well could trigger some people so proceed with caution.

This book was heartfelt, sexy, romantic, cute, tragic and freaking adorable. I am in love with the entire cast of characters. The end was a bombshell (but I will say I saw it coming). I can’t wait to read everyone’s books. My favorite parts were the texts between them all. These group of friends are more then anyone could wish for, for a family. They made this story that much better. I am definitely head over heels for Dex. Oh man did he raise the bar for men. He is everything any girl needs. Swooooon!! I didn’t expect the depth I got from him and his kids are the cherry on the top. Laine is Wonder Woman. Yes, she tends to run but given her past she is a fighter. I’m in awe of her. I love how she jumped in and took on a strange family just because she is a good person. I teared up many times in this book. It was just so right. The most perfect of love stories. I love how they mended each other. How they shared scars. For being her debut novel this author hit it out of the park. Great job! This is a MUST read!!

If you love sassy heroines and alpha family guys, Lanie and Dex will knock your socks off. Theirs is a romance for the ages and, fortunately, was chronicled in a super sweet way. Dex is one clever fella, let me tell you. The only trouble I had was how easily some of the external conflicts were resolved. Considering the baggage these characters dragged around and how incredibly deep and thoroughly the internal conflicts were handled, it felt a little too easy when people and problems were just handled. But I guess that's the benefit to being a billionaire... The ending also felt a little rushed, but considering how rich this book was (do you know how hard it is to find a well-paced, long romance?) I didn't mind so much. Altogether this is a remarkable novel and ticks all the boxes!

    One chance encounter broke me; another could set me free. The moment I meet the incredibly sexy Dexter Cross, I know I'm in trouble. His intensity is electric, and I express a sass I thought was long extinguished. It's a shock to my system and seems to put Dexter on edge, which I like. Teasing him appears to be my new favorite pastime. Accepting the nanny position for Dexter's three children will be my fresh start in life, but the closer I get to Dexter and his children, the harder I know it will b One chance encounter broke me; another could set me free.

I'm only meant to stay for a year, but all too quickly, Dexter becomes determined to break down my walls. He thinks I can choose them and stay, but I know better. Dexter doesn't understand my kind of damaged. My scars run deep, but so does Dexter's determination. He has his eyes and heart set on me. Even our friends are joining in on this battle, a crazy bunch of misfits who cause chaos at every turn. It's me against them, I'm just not sure who will break first.
