~~SUMMARY~~Gwen Stone has secrets she’s not ready to reveal. After a recent promotion at work, she needs a caretaker for her children. She’s frenzied and in a lurch and pretty much ready to hire the first person who comes along. So she does. Andrew Lyons needs to get out of his sister’s apartment, and a Craigslist posting may be the answer to his prayers. But what he thought was an ad for a room rental turns into a job offer he can’t refuse. Accepting the nanny position could change his life, if only he had a clue how to be a grownup. A working mother, a shirtless “manny” who looks good in a towel, two children who need more than a babysitter, and hours of kids’ TV can only spell disaster for everyone involved. Because a manny should always mind his own business. And he definitely shouldn’t fall in love with his boss.
~~ABOUT THE AUTHOR~~
Amber is a full-time mom and a full-time wife who is employed full time and writes when she can. She believes in Happily Ever Afters that occur every day—despite the obstacles real life serves up on a regular basis. Or perhaps they’re sweeter simply because of them. She always has two rubber bands on her wrist, a song in her head, and too much creamer in her coffee cup that reads ‘Cocoa,’ because she’s a rebel. If she’s not at her desk, with her boys, or behind the computer, she’s supporting live music with her arms raised above her head and her eyes closed, waiting for the drop.

Praise for Eight Days a Week
"Laugh-out-loud story about a guy who goes to look at a room to rent and discovers it comes with a job - that of live-in nanny to two damaged kids. So Andrew Lyons accidentally becomes the "manny". Written in his POV, this book chronicles his hilarious escapades as he looks after and grows to love Bree and Brady, and his employer, Gwen. His pranks and spot-on observations about kids' TV shows had me giggling, but there were a few serious moments worthy of a sniffle as well. The star of the show may be Don, though - you'll just have to read this book to find out about him! Highly recommended."

I give it - 5/5
My review - What a beautiful, heartwarming, funny story!
I really enjoyed this story right from the beginning. It really grasped my interest! I've read many nanny stories where the female nanny falls in love with her boss so I like that Amber wrote that it was a male nanny and it was just different from all the rest.
Andrew is now my favourite character, his humor was amazing and especially Don ;D
I really liked the character growth in this story, not just Andrew but Gwen and the kids and it really made the ending that more special when you remember how much they've changed for the better to get there.
This story made me laugh so much, my boyfriend kept looking at me cause I was laughing out loud.
I was awwwwing at certain moments mostly with Brady as he was just adorable and Bree and her sassiness!
I did tear up a few bits but then it was right back to making me laugh.
I haven't read that much from Amber but after reading this and her writing skills, she has a new fan! Can't wait to read more from her!
