I picked up HIS HUMAN NANNY because I do a weekly feature called What the Actual Fuck Wednesday where I try to read some of the weirdest and most "out there" romance and erotica books and then talk about them and gently make fun of them.
After two seriously gross entries-- THE HAUNTED VAGINA and MY DILDO IS A SERIAL KILLER-- I was excited to pick up something that seemed cute. And the beginning of this book was genuinely good. I liked how Riley stood up for herself to the exploitative job placement people. Everything kind of falls apart once Riley is placed as a nanny in an alien household.
Aegir basically falls for her instantly, and she does too. And Riley goes from thinking that Aegir looks like satan incarnate to being, like, "I want to fuck that." The baby aliens were cute-- and breathe fire!-- and I thought the writing was decent. But the romance didn't work for me at all.
