Author: Katie Reus
What I’m Talking About:
Reus deliveries another enjoyable novella with the second story in the MacArthur Family series. Unintended Target features Brodie the brother to Daniel, the hero in the first novella, Falling for Irish. Brodie is head of security to Trevor (not really sure what Trevor does but he’s rich and a businessman). Patience, the heroine this time around is a Kindergarten teacher who fills in as a nanny for the summer when Trevor needs help because all his other nannies have quit.
Brodie and Patience met outside a club at a food truck. There’s an instant attraction, Brodie asks for her number but she declines because she’s not really looking to date at the moment. They part ways with no hard feelings.
Then they are surprised to see each other again when Patience starts the nanny job. The attraction is still there but they try to professional about it when they are on the clock.
Unintended Target is a sweet romance with sexual tension and a bit of danger when it appears Trevor is targeted through his nephew (now son, since Oliver’s parents died in an accident). Brodie is there to protect everyone involved and finds love in the process.
The next MacArthur Family series installment (and the last one), Saving Sienna will focus on Brodie and Daniel’s sister, Sienna. It will release next month, April 20, 2021.

About the Book:
He’s not her type.
Elementary school teacher Patience had her whole summer planned out, and it included margaritas and a lot of time at the beach. But when she agrees to a temporary nanny position as a favor to a friend, the last thing she expected was to butt heads with—or be attracted to—Brodie MacArthur, her employer’s sexy head of security.
But that doesn’t stop her from wanting him.
Brodie made a mistake with Patience and forever ruined her first impression of him. Just as their heated clashes reach a peak, Patience falls ill…and it’s something far more sinister than a simple summer bug. He screwed up once. He won’t do it again. And when he learns that the danger is closer than they imagined, he’ll have to fight to protect her—and win her heart.
