    One thought on “Just for Now”

    1. Rugby romance YES YES YES you betcha I grabbed itDoes rugby excite me much, yes it does. The game is invigorating and the men are smoking hot- bonus ! Finn the main character an an All Black, is perfect example. he's tall, hot, smart, lovable, and a family man. Did I mention he's an All Black ? < fans self > Well his family is a bit broken and he needs a nanny for a short while. The nanny he find is a 29 year old teacher who is looking for a simple break from real life to get herself back [...]

    2. Overall rating: 4 stars!Triggers:Cheating: (view spoiler)[ The hero's deceased wife had cheated on him and the heroine's ex husband had cheated on her, but no other cheating events in the story.(hide spoiler)]Love triangle: (view spoiler)[ no(hide spoiler)]Sex with om/ow: (view spoiler)[ The hero has a girl that he is dating up until the 15% mark of the book. He was dating her before he met the heroine. You never see him being intimate with her at all, but it is most definitely assumed that they [...]

    3. I loved it. I loved the kids with Jenna. I loved how things between Jenna and Finn developed slowly. And I really liked the little surprise at the end of the book. Will try the salmon soon.

    4. This book (series?) was recommended to me a miiiillion times by my friends and I finally got around to reading it thanks to my insomnia. Now, this book (ries?) is about an American expat who has taken up residency in New Zealand. She meets a Rugby player who has two kids and in need of live-in nanny. She needs a job to hold her over until the school year starts and she can go back to teaching.Alright! So, as a romance I could definitely say I did not like it almost at all. The couple, to me, did [...]

    5. This book started out so promising, but it went on for way, way too long considering all of the scenes were essentially the same. Also, none of the characters' ages worked for me. The children were written much older than the 7 and 4 they are declared, and Jenna read much younger than 30 - extreme naivete in modern heroines is one of my least favorite tropes, especially when that woman has been married and didn't grow up in a crazy religious household. There was also a lot of time spent on flash [...]

    6. For me this book can be summarised in two quotesYou're sexy as hell, you love kids, you can cook… what more is there?AndI'm still mad. I can't help it. Because I wasted all those years. I wanted kids. That's what I've wanted most in my life. The one thing. It doesn't seem like too much to want, doesn't it? And now I'm thirty.I can't even bother with the rest 😐

    7. I'm not really sure how I felt about this book. Being that it's located in Auckland, I gave it a bit of leeway due to the differences in language until I realized that the h was supposed to be American. Sure, she lived there for the past 7 years, but, it just seemed awkward at times. The author should have either made the h from the area, or had her use more of the American slang.I learned a lot about rugby, maybe a little too much, which brings me to what I didn't like about the book the most. [...]

    8. My August Prime Read. Loved it! 4.5*. I loved Emma- strong, with a sweet personality (rare to have both!). Finn, another Rugby player-one of the older players on the "All Blacks" New Zealand national team. He's a widower with a son Harry and a daughter Sophia. Emma is the nanny and Finn appreciates Emma's great qualities--that have been ignored up until now (need I say more?)The kids don't get in the way of the story-as far as being too unrealistic or too devilish- in fact, they are my favorite [...]

    9. Just a quick review.Very solid romance between a divorcee trying to reinvent herself and a widower with two very credible children as characters.There are no overwhelming tropes to make you pull your hair out, but it's a developing romance between two people who respect each other. I know, sounds boring. It's not.One essential character in the book that really stands out is New Zealand. The writer does such an excellent job with the setting and the colloquial jargon, it's charming. In fact, I wa [...]

    10. It's like All Black fan-fic! Of course I'm in!For teacher Jenna McKnight, nothing spells “heartbreak” like finding her husband with somebody else--in her bed. It’s clearly time to reinvent herself. A new body, a new city, and a new job later, she’s done just that. The beautiful Auckland villa isn’t really her home, though. Finn Douglas and his kids aren’t really her family, however much she wishes they were. And playing house can be a dangerous game.Rugby star Finn Douglas is just lo [...]

    11. I have really enjoyed the Rosalind James series Escape to New Zealand. There are 5 books in all, and each one tells a unique story of a relationship blossoming from first introduction on. The first book is Hannah and Drew’s story. It is arguably the slowest of the 5, providing the New Zealand setting and the Rugby football instruction. While the slowest of the 5, it is in no ways a negative on the book itself. In book one, Hard working Hanna meets hard working Drew, and together they learn tha [...]

    12. I love the Maori and how this series is teaching me more about their culture. Let's not forget about the drool-worthy Maori men. The storyline did leave me confused a bit because it seemed like the author was leaving out information, but that could also be due to the fact that I haven't read the first or second book yet

    13. I just adored this book, my favorite in the Escape to New Zealand series because of the wonderful lead characters, Jenna and Finn.The characters, Jenna, a nanny, Finn, her rugby-playing employer, and Sophie and Harry, Finn's two children and Jenna's charges, all read as real, with real affection, real flaws, real issues, real joy, real sadness, and real love.Jenna is an American who'd moved to NZ many years before with her then-boyfriend / later husband / soon-to-be ex-husband (he cheated on her [...]

    14. I received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of a book tour in exchange for a fair and honest review. I rated it 5 out of 5 Stars.A transplanted American starting her life over, a professional rugby player who wants to be loved for himself and two precious children are the main characters in Rosalind James contemporary romance, Just for Now. The third book in the Escape to New Zealand series, I found myself able to enjoy this book on it's own. With likable characters, good dialogue and [...]

    15. Rate is 3.5 stars. Find the original review at Reading with ABCJust for Now is a fun, steamy read.What I liked most about the book where its characters. Jenna is separated from her husband (apparently in New Zealand the couple has to separate and wait two years before getting a divorce) because of something that happened with her ex (don’t want to spoil it for you). She has undergone both a spiritual and a physical change due to this. Jenna is very loving, a great teacher, has the patience of [...]

    16. I got the first two books in this series for free, Just This Once and Just Good Friends which I really enjoyed so I bought this one to see if the rest of the series is as good. I prefer the first two books to this one that has a nanny adopts the family as her own plot line.Jenna McKnight is still getting divorced when she takes the nanny job for Rugby star Finn Douglas's two cute children. We find outselves in a beautiful Auckland villa with a sexy buff rugby widower so I can't blame Jenna for h [...]

    17. 4.0 Star Review of Just For Now (Escape to New Zealand #3) by Rosalind JamesSingle dad and senior rugby player for the All Blacks, Finn Douglas needs a temporary nanny in a hurry and after seeing the advertisement, Jenna McKnight applies. This is rugby romance New Zealand style.Initially the sparks fly, with both concluding that they cannot work together. But what they don’t count on is the hand of fate, in particular Sophie and Harry.I really enjoyed these two as individuals and eventually as [...]

    18. synopsis:jenna is walking her friend's dog when she runs into some children and their nanny a couple of times. when she applies for a summer job as a nanny, she sees the children again. she also sees their father, who thinks that she is after him because she knows that he is a famous rugby player. jenna, however, doesn't know finn from a face in the crowd. once that misunderstanding is fixed, jenna settles in as the live-in nanny. she just needs a job until school starts up again and she can get [...]

    19. I thought I was in love with Rosalind James before, but this book pretty much cemented that love. I completely adore the believability of the characters that James creates. I also love the relationships between said characters. You truly feel like you are part of the family and pulled into the family and not just a reader reading about this group of people thrown together.James also weaves in a a great sense of humor. I first read Just for Now a few months ago and purchased all the others in the [...]

    20. Another winner!! This New Zealand based series is very, very good. This is the 3rd book in the series for me. This one concerns Finn, a major rugby player, and Jenna McKnight. She's had a difficult childhood and then a marriage gone awry, through no fault of hers. She and Finn are both very believable characters as are the others in the novel. Once again there are occasional references to the other rugby players I met in books 1 & 2. I'm looking forward to the next one that I've already purc [...]

    21. Loved this one. Good story and you real,y got to know each of the characters, one by one. This book reminds you that you can find love again after heartbreak. My idea of who Finn isGoogle: Richie McCaw. He is the captain of the All Blacks Team (in real life). Exactly what I pictured Finn would look like!

    22. While the overall story was enjoyable, I'm not sure if I really "connected" to the couple. Something seemed missing from their romance. The ending got a little melodramatic and almost felt redundant, like I'd read a hundred versions of the same story before. Loved all the Kiwi stuff, though, and the kids were adorable.

    23. This is a hard review to write. I liked Finn and I liked Jenna but I didn't like them together. And I know this is a "nanny" plot, but I really felt the romance suffered due to too much kid interaction. The dreaded (view spoiler)[secret baby (hide spoiler)] didn't please me either. Liked but didn't love.

    24. A good story with great characters but was missing something. The first half of the book made me feel like I was listening to some lecture. There was also nothing between Finn and Jenna. But then all of a sudden they're together. Missing the chemistry for sure.
