Side Hustle by Emily Goodwin


Release Date: December 4, 2018


When Scarlet Cooper takes a new job as a nanny, she assumes she’s going to work for the rich couple who hired her. But instead of pulling up to their million-dollar estate, she finds herself on the front porch of a humble farmhouse, looking into the eyes of dark and brooding single dad, Weston Dawson.It’s bad enough that Weston doesn’t have a fortune to charm out of him, but he’s also a cop. 

After marrying his high school sweetheart only to have her up and leave weeks after their baby was born, Weston has sworn off women for life. All that matters now is taking care of his son, Jackson. 

If anyone can break down the tough exterior of the former soldier, it’s Scarlet. But just when she’s close to getting exactly what she wants, she’s faced with a whole new challenge, which just might be the biggest con she’s ever pulled: pretending she doesn’t love him.


“Because she spits out her truths like they’re lies, saying serious things so casually it’s like a joke.”

This book touched something deep in my soul. I have a bit of an obsession with characters that endured messy and traumatic upbringings. Scarlet is super messy, and has done some really messed up things, but you can’t help wanting the best for her throughout this story. The way she is with Jackson and Wes is so heartwarming. Plus, I’m a sucker for a good family like the Dawson’s! This book has so many of my favorite elements, and I read it in one sitting!

Side Hustle is the third Dawson family book.

The fourth book, Cheap Trick, is just as good. Find my review here.

And the fifth book comes out at the end of this year. I CAN’T WAIT!!
