Family Care

When 18-year-old Josie agreed to sacrifice her last high school spring break babysitting for the new family in town she could have never foreseen the result. The Sharps are young, attractive, successful with a gorgeous home and a hidden secret. What’s the most that could happen?

    This was a coming of age story with a real kick. Josie is 18 and babysitting for an attractive power couple, the Sharps. The Sharps have grown apart and are now mostly strangers that pass in the night. When Mr. Sharp becomes attracted to Josie he trys to fight it but when he finds out the feeling is mutual, they cross the employer/employee line in a big way. This story is more than that though, through Josie, the Sharps find their way back to each other and the love they once shared. This is a great book, very entertaining and the sex scenes will steam up your kindle, high recommend!

    I debated about whether to include this in my Listmania list of “Quality Taboo Erotica.” (http://www.amazon.com/lm/R2SFG98MD0Q4A0/) and finally decided against it. I like the premise – a teenage girl babysits for a couple having marital problems and ends up having sex with both, including three-ways. It’s the first time the couple have had sex in a long time, and it reminds them how much they love each other. The sex scenes are excellent and the writing is more-than-respectable English, though the author seems to have abandoned proof-reading toward the end.

    The problem is that the first half of the book is description that does nothing to advance the story. There’s way, way, WAY, too much description of the family and the children and yadaa, yadda, yadda. I skipped or skimmed my way through most of the first half of the book. It wasn’t because I was dying to get to the sex scenes – I like buildup. It was because I was waiting for the story to start.

    In summary, I give this a “Nice try but no cigar” rating. I’ll try something else by this author. Maybe she does better with shorter stories.

    Yep. I’m seriously mad at myself for not reading this gem earlier. And FAMILY CARE is exactly that: a gem. Wow and WOW!

    So, Josie is your atypical high school senior, opting to spend her last spring break babysitting for the neighborhood power couple, the Sharps, instead of hanging out with her friends. Though the Sharps appear to have it all, they certainly don’t have it all together, as Josie soon learns.

    The story itself is working on a number of different levels, at once `coming of age’ and `coming together’ while also `coming apart.’ I’ve read all of Jessa’s other work so I KNOW she is “Queen of the plot twist,” but she goes above and beyond here, creating a vortex that draws the reader deep into each character. And she does it so subtly that you’re not aware you’re in until, well, you’re in! Smokin’ hot sex is set against a backdrop of this ever-present tug o’ war–innocence vs guilt, old vs new, strong vs fragile, child vs adult–elevating the husband-cheats-with-babysitter trope by digging into the raw emotions of everyone involved.

    Let me add that I LOVE Jessa’s handling of the three Sharp kids. They’re essentially the initiating incident in the story (in more ways than one) but they’re not so present as to be overdone. And still, with their limited page time, I feel like they were real rugrats, each with their own personality and each contributing to the story instead of just being atmosphere.

    Don’t wait like I did. Read this NOW. You won’t be disappointed.
