The Trust of a Billionaire by Michelle Pennington {Review}

The Trust of a Billionaire (A Southern Billionaire Romance; A Destined for Love Resorts Romance)

Hannah Rhodes is determined to keep her beachfront property, even though she can’t afford to. But it’s her childhood home and she can’t bear to see it plowed down by the billionaire investor who keeps raising his offer to buy it. When the same man hires her to be his daughter’s nanny—providing her the income she needs to reject his offer—the irony is not lost on her. However, seeing him as a loving, worried father makes it difficult to enjoy her secret revenge.

For Carter Ellis, building his own resort was a massive risk, but worth it to build a new life for his daughter away from his controlling mother. Everything is going to plan except that the owner of the tumbled-down home blocking his resort view and threatening its success refuses to sell. If only his new nanny would stop distracting him, he just might be able to figure out how to solve this problem. Not only is she beautiful and vibrant, she’s helping his daughter bloom. Just when he begins to give in to his feelings, he discovers who she really is.

When their trust is shaken, will Carter and Hannah sacrifice what they wanted most for a chance at something more?

My Review: 5 Stars

There is a lot to love with this story and Destin, Florida is now on my list of places to visit. Having just returned from a trip to Tampa, I could visualize pretty well the gorgeous setting, and could almost feel the sea breeze blowing through my hair. Add to that the spunky characters and sweet romance, and it was a picture perfect read.  

Carter owns a resort and is determined to get rid of the house next door. Hannah's sister owns the home and she lives there. When she is hired as a babysitter for Carter's adorable daughter, sparks fly--in more ways than one. 

Opposites really can attract and this book is such a fun reminder of that. From Hannah's ridiculous, but cute nicknames, to the tender wish bracelets, to the irresistible swoony sparks, this book captured me and I couldn't put it down. 

I especially loved the characters and Hannah was at the root of it all. Her ability to draw Addi out and help her to blossom into a normal six year old was heartwarming; the way she was able to stabilize Carter was sweet; and the way she handled an overbearing mother and a stressful decision was admirable.
