Blurb

When we were in college, Henry Stone asked me out and I shot him down in the most humiliating way possible.
He was a nerd and I was the golden girl of the theatre society, destined to make it big in Hollywood, so how could there be anything between us?
Now, six years later, as an out-of-work actress who has to take on a housekeeping job to stay afloat, I run into him again—and boy, has he made it big.
As I begin to clean his house and take care of his precocious nephew, I realize how wrong I was about him. He’s sexy, smart, kind, everything.
But I have demons that he can’t fight. Demons that keep me away from love.
One thing’s for sure: This housekeeper gig is going to be the hardest role of my life.

Excerpt

Blank. My mind goes totally blank. A deeply disturbing feeling coils under my ribs, spreading its coldness throughout my body.
Tumor? Did he say tumor? The stuff you get when you’ve got cancer?
No. No, no, no. I can’t lose him. I cannot. In these terribly depressing times, when my career has failed and my luck’s pulled a Houdini on me, Lucien and Henry are the only people making my life worthwhile. I really, really anticipate seeing him every morning, making him breakfast, talking to him. I don’t want him to go.
“Tumor, did you say?” My lip wobbles.
“I didn’t mean to scare you.” He puts both his hands under the arch of his back for support. Does it still hurt there? “Maybe it’s my imagination, but when I was diagnosed with cancer four years ago, I felt a similar pain in my back, and I was confident it was nothing…but I was wrong,” Henry says, in a voice that milks every ounce of my emotions.
I don’t want to cry for him. But I do. On the inside.
And then poof goes my promise to not get near him, not touch him, not put my arms around him, draw him close and comfort him. I do it all.
My cheek sweeps an arc over his shoulder blade, and in those moments, the world is pure and beautiful and there is no such thing as fear. I don’t even recoil.
Maybe, I think, it’s because I know he’s a good person. The reason doesn’t even matter. What matters is to comfort him. 
“Don’t feel bad for me.” Henry winds one arm around me.
The urge to protect him that arises within me at that moment tells me more than I need to know.
“I’m not feeling bad for you. I’m praying that you’re wrong.”
I don’t even recognize the person who says that.
When did I become someone who cares for other people? When did Henry Stone become someone who could tear my soul to pieces with a simple glance? When did he go from being a nobody I wouldn’t look at twice in a million years to making my heart race like a F1 racecar in his presence? Have I been blind all along or has he always been so fuckin’ beautiful?

Review

Henry & Me is second chance love story it's a low angst sweet read. Max has big, big dreams of making it to the top in her acting career. But life didn't pan out the way she thought it would while in college. So years later she finds her living with her brother after her acting career took a nose dive and looking for a job.
What she never expected was to turn up for a housekeeping/nanny job at a wealthy and rich mans house who turns out to be a guy that she turned down in the past because she felt he wasn't good enough!

Henry has a successful career he has the job, house, money and also is a care provider for his 9yr old nephew Lucien. While studying at Harvard he was a geek a nerd but was very comfortable and confident with who he was. Never saw that as a problem that was until he asked out the very beautiful and talented Max. And was swiftly and cruelly told his place in the world of standards! So low and behold the very girl that deemed herself to good for him is the very same girl that is there to apply for his house keeping job. Oh how the tables have turned!!

The story is told all from Max's POV and to be honest at the beginning she really annoyed me. I just couldn't connect to her character at all. She really did think she was above herself. Her saving grace was that she does become humble and less judgmental. And the relationship she has with Lucien shows us a different side. So by the end of the read she had grew on me a bit.

Henry and Lucien made this read for me i would have preferred it to be told from Henry's POV but that's my personal opinion. Henry always saw beyond Max's bad traits and even though he could have held it against her he never did. He forgave her for how she had treated him and always saw the positive with her. Oh and Lucien, had me laughing- he was as smart and quick as a whip for his young age the things he said and did had me smiling throughout his parts in the read.

Henry & Me is a nice easy safe read.
