Publisher's Summary

A retired SEAL is about to face his toughest assignment yet. As a nanny...

Fixer. Bodyguard. Advocate. Brann Calder is expected to play all these roles and more as a member of Torus Intercession, a security firm guaranteed to right what’s wrong. In the military, catastrophe was his specialty. Five months out of the service, Brann is still finding his way, so a new assignment might be just what he needs. Unless it includes two things sure to make a seasoned, battle-trained veteran nervous: life in a small town, and playing caregiver to two little girls. 

Emery Dodd is drowning in the responsibility of single fatherhood. He’s picked up the pieces after losing his wife and is ready to move on now, hopeful that his engagement to a local patriarch’s daughter will not only enrich his community but will grant his daughters some stability, too. 

The only thing standing in Emery’s way is that he can’t seem to keep his eyes - and hands - off the former soldier he’s hired to watch his girls until the wedding. 

Emery’s future is riding on his upcoming nuptials, but being with Brann makes him and his family feel whole again. Too bad there’s no way for them to be together. 

Or is there?

An amazing story

This has to be one of the best stories I have listen to on this site. It has just enough action and humor to keep you on the edge of your seat. It is so pure and loving. I fell in love with Brann just as fast as the girls did, if not more. The beginning is a little boring, but once he's out in Montana, it's non-stop amazingness. I laughed, I cried, I screamed. It pulls so many emotions from you in just a few words. Mary Calmes' made an amazing story that I hope many people listen to and enjoy. Scott R. Smith did a fantastic job voicing all of these characters, his voice clearly chaining so you clearly know when it's a new character speaking. He's voice made me fall in love with everything. He seemed so excited for parts of it, almost like a childish joy. This story is filled with a lot of childish joy and is too freaken sweet. I can no say that enough. I honestly hope that there is a part two soon, and hopefully this isn't the last we hear of Brann, Emry and their girls. Best Nanny ever.

Upbeat and Very enjoyable!

4 Blue Roses 4 Blue Flames Narrator Scott R. Smith delivered a funny and upbeat romantic comedy. He is talented and a natural narrator. His voice is beautiful, smooth and versatile. His emotions flow subtly into his reading making listening to his work very enjoyable to listen to this author/narrator duo. I am a Mary Calmes fan, so as soon as I saw this new audiobook, I just had to have it. The story line is kind of predictable, but it was still an adventure with a HEA. It was a beautiful romance, and I will keep my eyes open for the follow up in the series. The characters and upbeat experience is like a little blue pill, it picks you up, but you have to continue to take it just forget about it, until it comes around again. Otherwise, you will get weak, needy and just plain addicted. Happy Listening.

4.5 Stars

Scott R. Smith does another good job bringing all the characters to life and setting an easy listening pace in this contemporary romance with a likeable cast and a very Calmesian plot. 😘 Single POV, with no cheating, plenty of heat later in the story, a bit of a mystery to play out, and a very happy ending. I loved it.

Great New Series - Super Plot - Excellent Cast

This is another wonderful dimension to the Mary Calmes universe of storytelling. Although an improbable scenario of a retired Navy Seal becoming a nanny in rural Montana, it nonetheless became a sweet story of family and love. I look forward to the next book in the series. It would be cool to do a crossover with Miro Jones and Ian Doyle from the Marshals Series with Brann and Emery’s story ... and have both Tristan James and Scott Smith collaborate on the narration. The Marshals are looking for a fugitive in rural Montana and need Brann’s help. One suggestion: The narrator blew it on the pronunciation of Montana’s state Capitol City, Helena: the proper pronunciation is HEH-LUH-NUH, NOT (!) HE-LAY-NA. The story of naming of Helena Montana is widely known as it was a compromise name between Union and Confederate veterans of the Civil War....and even then there was a disagreement as to the proper pronunciation. Scott Smith’s performance was fantastic except the constant mispronunciation of Helena (HE-LAY-NA), so 1 star exception.

Perfect Quarantine Period Listen

This book is just what I needed for this crazy quarantine period. It's low in angst. Great story. Enjoyable cast of characters, specially Olivia and April. There's a bit of humor injected in some parts of the story and I have laughed out loud a few times. There's also a bit of mystery. Frustrating in some parts because of Brann's stubbornness, but I don't blame him one bit. The story actually touches a lot of tough subjects and emotional aspects, but Mary Calmes found a way to write it without being too heavy on the angst. Also, there's a lot of steam once the MCs got together. Mary Calmes knows how to write some sexy scenes! I enjoyed Scott R. Smith's narration of this book. He is a new-to-me narrator and his performance was great. I can't wait for the next book of this series.

All fixed in the end.

No quick fix was right up my alley. Any small quibbles with this story are excused as I found it delightful, heartwarming, touching and romantic. In addition we get a bit of a mystery and murder to be solved! What's not to like? Also a cast of interesting and diverse characters to keep the story interesting and moving along.

Good book bad background noise

I thought the story was good and the narrator was great. Am I the only one that can hear all the background noises? I hear freaking birds and traffic. It takes me out of the story and drives me crazy.

Narrator was perfect

This is a fluffy thing with a too-perfect main character that is perfect for a stressful pandemic afternoon. The kids are cute, the bad guys are bad, and the good guys are good. I don't know if I would have purchased the audiobook if I hadn't really liked the next book in the series. I'm glad I did because the narrator gave the book some needed gravity. I'm sure I'll listen to it again.

Was ok but not fantastic

I liked it but even coming from a woman that knew on the first date that I was going to marry my husband, I’m not a fan of all the instalove stuff. He went from not having any desire to go to Montana to perfect father figure who instantly knew all the right things to do and immediately wanting to be a family. I would definitely listen to it if on romance package or if you get credits cheap. But not worth a full price buy for sure.

I did not care for this narration.

I could only listen to part of the first chapter. This narrator's voice did not pair well with the main character's "voice" in my mind. I found it distracted from the story for me.
