Review: Rafe by Rebekah Weatherspoon

Rebekah Weatherspoon has written what is quite possibly the softest and fluffiest book ever. It will make you smile and giggle. Rafe is about a male nanny, who is buff and quite honestly the best man ever created. (Don’t tell my other book boyfriends I said this, please.)

Rafe CoverAll Dr. Sloan Copeland needed was someone to watch her kids. What she found was the man of her dreams…

After a nasty divorce and a thousand mile move, Dr. Sloan Copeland and her twin daughters are finally getting the hang of their new life in Los Angeles. When their live-in nanny bails with no warning, Sloan is left scrambling to find a competent caretaker to wrangle her smart, sensitive girls. Nothing less will do.

Enter Rafe Whitcomb. He’s all of those things, not to mention good-natured and one heck of a whiz in the kitchen. He’s also tall, and handsome, and bearded, and ripped, and tatted, wrist to neck.

It doesn’t take long for the Copelands to invite Rafe into their home. Just as quickly, both Sloan and Rafe find themselves succumbing to a heady mutual attraction, neither of them wants to deny. With every minute they spend under the same roof, this working mom can’t help but wonder if Rafe can handle all her needs…  (via Goodreads)


I received an eARC of Rafe from the author in exchange for an honest review.

You won’t just fall for Rafe, the man and the legend that this book gets its name from. You’ll also adore Sloan, the single mother doctor who hires him. Sloan is an ambitious mom who needs a nanny because her previous one kind of…leaves…without a warning. We don’t like her. (Who’d leave two six-year-old girls by themselves? Wow!)

Sloan and Rafe’s romance is honestly quite refreshing because from the minute they meet, their attraction to each other is immediate. They like what they see but both have quite the issue of how professional it’d be to engage in anything with their circumstances.

Sloan doesn’t want to put her wants before her girls’ needs and Rafe would never jeopardize his work. What I adored about their dynamics during that period of time is the straightforward approach Rafe takes. He just tells Sloan he finds her attractive. Heck, he might even like her.

I swoon. Sloan swoons. We all swoon for Rafe, to be honest. Because he isn’t just buff. He’s considerate, caring, pragmatic, fun, honest, and quite honestly a freaking snack.

Sloan on the other hand has a great best friend who both encourages her to bang him and to find the flaw that’ll turn her off him. Those text messages and Facetime sessions might be the most fun friendship interactions I’ve ever read. Weatherspoon’s an expert on writing engaging minor characters.

Speaking of engaging characters, Addison and Avery, Sloan’s twin daughters, are so much fun to read. They are so very different, and both provide with much needed scenes in which Rafe is proven to be the BEST. He learns how to braid their hair, earns Avery’s trust, and is there for them at a moment when they are terrified. The girls are a big part of the plot since they are the sole reason Sloan and Rafe take such care in hiding their delicious trysts.

Speaking of. Sloan and Rafe together are adorable, lovely but above all…hot as hell. Literally, I think I sweated during those sex scenes. I give it a total five out of five because I liked how Sloan was given so much care when it came to sex. I loved reading how she sought her climax…so to say.

The book is quite fluffy, but it does deal with Sloan’s ex who is scum and wanted to sabotage her career. Thankfully, our babe Rafe takes care of that. I told you he’s an angel.

I adored Rafe. And Rafe. And Sloan. You will too. Grab a copy on Amazon!
