Side Hustle- Emily Goodwin

ARC Review

Scarlet Cooper is used to lying, cheating, and stealing in order to support her family. When a new opportunity to make money presents itself, she agrees to nanny for a rich family with hopes of conning the husband. Instead, she finds she agreed to nanny for a single father who is running for sheriff. Left with no other option but to work for him anyway, she slowly finds herself falling for both Weston, and his cute son Jackson.

The chemistry between Scarlet and Weston was crackling from their first meeting, and I always appreciate a cute kid. It was enjoyable seeing characters from the first two books in the Dawson family series (Cheat Codes and End Games).  I liked seeing Scarlet’s growth and change throughout the book. My only issue is Weston was maybe a little too quick to forgive and accept, especially considering his career, but I guess morality is fluid and its not like Scarlet didn’t have reason for her “sins.”

Overall I found it very enjoyable. 4/5 stars


Official Synopsis:

When Scarlet Cooper takes a new job as a nanny, she assumes she’s going to work for the rich couple who hired her. But instead of pulling up to their million-dollar estate, she finds herself on the front porch of a humble farmhouse, looking into the eyes of dark and brooding single dad, Weston Dawson.

It’s bad enough that Weston doesn’t have a fortune to charm out of him, but he’s also a cop.  After marrying his high school sweetheart only to have her up and leave weeks after their baby was born, Weston has sworn off women for life. All that matters now is taking care of his son, Jackson.

If anyone can break down the tough exterior of the former soldier, it’s Scarlet. But just when she’s close to getting exactly what she wants, she’s faced with a whole new challenge, which just might be the biggest con she’s ever pulled: pretending she doesn’t love him.
