book synopsis

A woman discovers the father of the child she is nannying may be her biggest (Only)Fan in this steamy contemporary romance by Lana Ferguson.

After losing her job and being on the brink of eviction, Cassie Evans finds herself with two choices: get a new job (and fast) or fire up her long-untouched OnlyFans account. But there are no jobs to be found, and as for OnlyFans. . . . Well, there are reasons she can’t go back. Just when all hope seems lost, an ad for a live-in nanny position seems the solution to all her problems. It’s almost too perfect—until she meets her would-be employer.

Aiden Reid, executive chef and DILF extraordinaire is far from the stuffy single dad Cassie was imagining. She is shocked when he tells her she’s the most qualified applicant he’s met in weeks, practically begging her to take the job. With hands that make her hindbrain howl and eyes that scream sex, the idea of living under the same roof as Aiden feels dangerous, but with no other option, she decides to stay with him and his adorably tenacious daughter, Sophie.

Cassie soon discovers that Aiden is not a stranger at all, but instead someone who is very familiar with her—or at least, her body. She finds herself at a loss for what to do, given that he doesn’t remember her. As their relationship heats to temperatures hotter than any kitchen Aiden has ever worked in, Cassie struggles with telling Aiden the truth, and the more terrifying possibility—losing the best chance at happiness she’s ever had.

book review

This book was so hot 🥵. This is probably the spiciest book I’ve read and I’m not mad about it. Honestly, Aiden Reid could shoot me and I would say thank you sir. I had no idea that chefs could be so hot.

Cassie and Aiden’s first encounter definitely wasn’t a meet-cute since they met on OnlyFans. The second time they met was when she became the nanny for his daughter (though they had no idea they had met before). I really liked Cassie, she was relatable and confident. Though some of her choice at the end of the book were questionable, I enjoyed her POV a lot. I loved how content and smiley she was, and how she dedicated herself to Sophie. Aiden’s POVs were much rarer, but they were in excellent moments. Honestly, I’m convinced Aiden is a perfect man and I would have no problems working as a nanny for him. He and his daughter, Sophie, are so adorable. I loved how Aiden, Sophie and Cassie made a little family so quickly.

I read this book in two days, and I would definitely recommend it as a relaxing, spicy romance. Though be warned – there are a lot of spicy scenes so if they are not your thing, this book is probably not for you. If you don’t mind spicy scenes, definitely read it. Aiden Reid and his dirty mouth are definitely worth it.

Harriet and Wyn have been the perfect couple since they met in college—they go together like salt and pepper, honey and tea, lobster and rolls. Except, now—for reasons they’re still not discussing—they don’t.

They broke up six months ago. And still haven’t told their best friends.

Which is how they find themselves sharing the largest bedroom at the Maine cottage that has been their friend group’s yearly getaway for the last decade. Their annual respite from the world, where for one vibrant, blue week they leave behind their daily lives; have copious amounts of cheese, wine, and seafood; and soak up the salty coastal air with the people who understand them most.

Only this year, Harriet and Wyn are lying through their teeth while trying not to notice how desperately they still want each other. Because the cottage is for sale and this is the last week they’ll all have together in this place. They can’t stand to break their friends’ hearts, and so they’ll play their parts. Harriet will be the driven surgical resident who never starts a fight, and Wyn will be the laid-back charmer who never lets the cracks show. It’s a flawless plan (if you look at it from a great distance and through a pair of sunscreen-smeared sunglasses). After years of being in love, how hard can it be to fake it for one week…in front of those who know you best?


Happy Place has quickly become my favourite book by Emily Henry. I loved the setting and the contrast between the rest of the world and their little cottage. I’m usually not a big fan of flashbacks, but this time around I enjoyed seeing the early days of the six friends, how they met and how they grew together. The six of them, Harriet, Wyn, Sabrina, Parth, Cleo and Kimmy, were so different from each other, but I loved how their friendship was stronger because of that.

I swear this book has the most perfect imperfect characters. Harriet and Wyn made me cry way too many times. I loved their relationship, how soft and quiet it was, but also my heart was breaking for them, for their problems and their struggles. Wyn is such an atypical love interest, and I love that so much. As Harriet always describes him, he is full of contradictions, and such a soft cinnamon roll. His and Harriet’s chemistry and love for one another was undeniable, even when they were broken up. When it comes to Harriet, I could relate to her so much and seeing her development throughout the book made me so happy. I enjoyed the side characters a lot too – my favourite was definitely Cleo (with Parth being a second favourite). If you need convincing why Cleo was my favourite, her vibe was an artist turned farm owner with lots of tattoos.

I cannot remember the last time a contemporary romance kept me on my toes so much.
I couldn’t wait to finally find out why Harriet and Wyn broke up, especially with all the little clues given throughout the book. Overall, Happy Place is a book that’s gonna make you feel warm and fuzzy, it’s gonna make you feel happy while crying a lot, and I cannot recommend it enough.

Thank you to Penguin Random House for sending me this eARC!
