Tour Schedule

The Nanny Arrangement (Country Blues #2) by Rachel Harris.
Audience/Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance.
Publication: May 22nd 2017 by Entangled Publishing, LLC (Bliss).
Soft-spoken and shy Hannah Fisher is determined to make the man she’s loved her entire life finally see her as a woman. With the help of a makeover, a new mission—Operation Find My Happy—and the convenient forced proximity of a tour bus, she vows to win her best friend Deacon’s heart.

Former bad boy and current fiddle player Deacon Latrell has the world at his fingertips: a new gig with a famous band, plus his best friend on tour as his son’s nanny. Life couldn’t get much sweeter. Now if only he could stop imagining kissing the daylights out of his childhood BFF…

With one friend set on pushing the boundaries and the other afraid to rock the boat, one thing’s for certain—their story would make one heck of a country song.

I fell in love with Deacon and Hannah from the very beginning! How could you not?! Ms Harris's writing made it so easy to see them and understand them from the beginning! Hannah and Deacon are so good for each other! I just swooned through the whole book!! Literally! Really, I did!! I didn't want it to end!

Hannah grew up with a stutter and Walmart clothes! She was bullied. Deacon had a dad who left and a mom who was always drunk and never there for Deacon. Hannah saw him playing with his basketball when he moved in 10 years ago. He looked sad and troubled. Hannah didn't know why but she just had to be his friend! And just like that they were best friends. But, they were really always more to each other! Deacon needed to always have the family that Hannah and her family offered Deacon! Hannah was too chicken to tell Deacon he meant more to her.

Deacon was the basketball player and every girl wanted him! When Hannah's supposed friend told Hannah that he wouldn't want her and kind of pushed her aside and jumped at Deacon. Max was born! But the egg donor didn't want to be a mom and ran away the day he was born and so Deacon and Hannah raised him. But Hannah kind of ran away too! She left for awhile!

She wanted more but didn't think Deacon saw her any other way then as his best friend. When she came back. Hannah decided she was going to get him to see her as his equal and more! That was her mission. So lucky that when Deacon got to go on tour with a band they needed a nanny and Hannah jumped in!

So starts her mission to get Deacon to see her in a different light. I laughed, sighed and even shed a few tears in her attempts and some spontaneous moments! Oh how I wanted Deacon to stop being "Superman" and just let go and allow someone to love him back and take a risk. There really is another word that I want to use but it would be a spoiler. Because, as time passed, I understood their feelings more and more. I got what misguided Deacon's mind was saying. And that is probably due to the writing, which made me so fall in love with all of the characters.

You know that point where they decide to let go and go for a chance at love only to have something that gets in the way and they part? Well when this happened, I had to put the book down and walk away. Because it hurt as if it was me being hurt! After a couple hours, I picked it back up and finished the book!

I also loved seeing Tyler and Sherry again. They were the couple in her book "Accidentally Married on Purpose".

Ugh! I have so many other books to read but I am going to go back and read this one again first! I love stories with little kids and families, second chances, bands, tour busses, slobbery kisses, nannies, overcoming obstacles in life, swooning, and falling deeply in love!

The lingerie had been an impulse purchase—an impulse that had then led to an epiphany. Blush and jade. Satin and lace. Toile and mousseline…the colors, styles, and textures had been overwhelming. Trying them on, well, that had been extraordinary. The silk had felt decadent against Hannah’s skin, almost forbidden, and so unlike anything she’d ever worn before. Living an ocean away from everyone and everything she’d ever known, nursing a broken heart, it had been exactly what Hannah had needed.
Initially, she’d fled to Paris to get over Deacon, but more than that, she’d been fleeing the woman she’d sadly become. A woman who sat on the sidelines of her own life. For far too long, she’d allowed other people to dictate her happiness, and that realization, coupled with naughty lingerie and a few glasses of spectacular wine in an adorable bistro, had birthed her new mission. Hannah liked to call it, Operation Joie de Vivre…or Operation Find My Happy.
Her mission was threefold.
First up, no more hiding. Hannah’s bad habit of shying away from experiences simply because they made her nervous was over. Now, she would be bold. Adventurous. Outgoing. Anything from forming friendships to speaking her mind was fair game, with the number one rule being no more skulking in the shadows. Paris had awoken a desire to start truly living—and to stop putting her dreams on hold.
Secondly, Hannah wanted to find her place in the world. The tour with Blue was a perfect opportunity to explore a new option. So far, her contract lasted only through the national leg, with the idea that they’d extend her stay once she’d gotten past a short trial period—a test she intended to pass with flying colors. At twenty-four, she was excited to settle into a career where she could make a real difference, and while she hoped to find that in this position, she was open to just about anything. Band nanny, au pair, or a preschool teacher, they all sounded wonderful. As long as she could make a real contribution, it would fit the bill.
Lastly, but perhaps most importantly—
She was putting her heart on the line, once and for all.
Lingerie may’ve kicked off her mission, but it was the hope of Deacon that gave it life. Denying her feelings all these years hadn’t changed them. Neither had leaving the country. The only thing that would, or so she’d decided, was pushing the boundaries of their friendship. Flirting (an activity with which Hannah had zero experience) and letting Deacon know she was ready for love were all part and parcel of her new plan to get her best friend to finally see her as a woman.
