How would you rate this book?
4 Better than most
When Jane Moore is forced to drop out of college by the death of her parents, she lands a nanny job that many girls would kill for. Working as a nanny for Nico Rathburn’s daughter, and Nico just happens to be one of the world’s most famous rock stars. Of course he’s not quite so famous anymore since the drugs screwed him up but he’s on the brink of a huge comeback since he got clean. Jane is wholly practical and sensible but she can’t help becoming mesmerized by Nico’s magnetic personality. But there’s a mysterious obstacle to their relationship that will quite possibly ruin both of their lives. A modern version of Jane Eyre that is easily readable by both Jane Eyre fans and those who dislike classics. Jane Eyre is one of my favorite books and I’m impressed with how well April Lindner adapted it to modern times. 8 stars out of 10.
