Book Review: Mannies Incorporated – Sean Michael

via Goodreads

via Goodreads

Slayde’s got the best job on earth: he’s a nanny to Army nurse and widow Mindy’s three kids. He’s been with the family since the oldest was born and is Uncle Slayde to all three children. When Mindy’s deployed, things aren’t easy, but he manages just fine. At least he does until Mindy’s big brother Drake shows up unexpectedly, announcing he’s there to help while Mindy is gone.

Drake is almost a stranger to the kids, hot as hell, especially in his motorcycling leathers, and straighter than straight. On top of that, Drake’s not used to dealing with kids, with things like gluten free, recycling and not eating fast food and soon has Slayde’s tight routine in shambles.

Slayde thinks Drake is far more of a hindrance than a help, at least at the start, but he tries to get along for Mindy’s sake and eventually, having Drake around is easier than not. But what’s he supposed to do when the straight, sexy leather wearing ex-cop makes a pass at him one night? Maybe there’s more to Drake than Slayde assumed. via Goodreads

The concept of this series is pretty interesting and this first installment is kind of okay. I loved Slade’s character and the three kids but Drake’s character just doesn’t sit well with me. I know that he’s totally in the closet but he came off in this book as an overbearing prick. I was actually waiting for a bit more conflict to happen but it never – never came at all. It was all good though, I thought it’s sweet that Drake finally opened up to his family and close friends but I’m wondering if there’ll be a continuation of this story when Drake will finally be proud to be out in public with Slade.

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
