When we meet Brad Sinclair, he’s your typical Hollywood heart-throb, but his world is flipped upside down as he’s given a role he never asked for: being a father. After a former fling passes away, he’s left to care for their five-year-old-daughter, Nicole. He’s all she’s got, so Brad vows to give parenting his best, but will he? Brad enlists the help of Cara DuMont, a whip-smart nanny to some of LA’s most privileged kids. She vows to steer clear of her deliciously handsome employer—he’s not a movie star for nothing—but can she?
The story is told through their alternating points of view, but I found Cara’s especially compelling. It’s through her eyes that we get an insider’s look at the life behind the life, a peek behind the curtain. But as Cara becomes entrenched in Brad’s world, it’s equally fascinating to learn just how human he is.
