So as some of you may know, I have somewhat of a soft spot when it comes to Daddyward stories. I know, Miss Scarlet having a soft side, who knew. But I do. I love when kids are done extremely well in fics. So on my search for the next Daddyward story to tickle my fancy I came across this story, a twist on your normal ideas of Daddyward.
Summary: Bella Swan needs a Nanny. Edward Cullen needs a job. Accepting the Manny position will change his life forever...and may just help him grow up in the process. Snark, humor, lemons and Edward in a towel. Seduction has never been so juvenile. AH/AU
Parere Miss Scarlet's (Miss Scarlet's Opinion)
EDAW is not your normal Parent story. Actually it involves two types of stories, the nanny and the boss and the daddyward. But this again isn't your usual nanny story either. Bella is going back into the workforce and needs someone to watch over her two children. Edward is basically a big kid who needs to get a job and off his friend's couch. Ergo, working for Miss Bella Swan.
At first Edward takes the job just to sleep with the boss. But him and his...peen a.k.a Don, were in for a treat. Brady and Bree, Bella's kids, bring something out in Edward. These kids and Bella have a complicated past and are closed off. Edward's youthfulness at life brings something out in all of them. And in turn they help him mature and figure out that there is more to life than just himself.
This story is full of cuteness from both kids and full of sexual tension from Edward and Bella. The rest of the gang is there as well. Alice and Edward are brother and sister and Jasper is Edward's best friend. Rosalie is Bella's bestfriend and she is also a mother of an adorable boy. Emmett owns a monkey joe's and falls head over heels for Rose and her son. Also if you couldn't tell by the title, this story is laced with The Beatles titles and references. It give the story a certain charm.
"Okay. Are you good with kids?"
Damn. Except maybe that. "Yeah," I responded nonchalantly. Why not? They were little tiny people. I was good with people.
"Do you have a degree in, like, childhood development or anything?" She seemed even more nervous now than when I arrived and I wondered for a second if she had ever interviewed for a child care provider before. From the way she was biting her nails I would guess that the answer was 'no'.
I cleared my throat and shook my head. "I have three years and a degree in piano. And I have a culinary degree as well. Neither of those are kid oriented, unfortunately."
"You never know, they could be. We have a piano upstairs…maybe you could teach Brady? And I think Bree would like cooking…" She cocked her head to the side and looked me over. "Wait. How old are you? You look no older than nineteen."
I snorted and ran my hands through my hair. "I'm twenty five, but thanks."
She pressed her hands over her face and sighed. "Okay. Is it going to make you uncomfortable to have a boss that's a year younger than you?"
"You're twenty four?" I stood back in disbelief and I did the math. She would have had to been pregnant at sixteen. "And you have this house?"
She looked away and sighed. "Another part of the long story, but…yes. I graduated high school early and took a fast track in college." She looked like she was doing math too. "So, if you have five years of school, what did you do the other two?"
Great. Here was the part where she threw me out for being a phony.
"I backpacked across Europe. And then I stayed for a year in Italy."
Her eyes squinted and then she looked me over once again. "What did you say your last name was?"
"I didn't." And at this point I wanted to use an alias.
"Cullen. My name is Edward Cullen."
There, you sexy nymph. Now you can kick me out of your house.
What she did next shocked the hell out of me.
Bella threw her arms up and laughed loudly like it was the funniest joke in the world. "You're Alice's brother! Oh my god…how funny. Does she know you're here?" I shook my head no. "Wow, that's amazing. Has she mentioned me? We're going to be working together again. She and I were friends a couple of years ago before I transferred to Phoenix, and we still talk on a regular basis…I've spoken with her over the past two weeks and you definitely need a job and a place to stay." She smiled broadly and looked relaxed. "That's pretty coincidental, though. She'll think this is hilarious."
'Hilarious' was probably not the word that my sister would use when she found out about this. I had to suppress another smile.
She stepped forward and took a calming breath. "I feel like I kind of know you already. She talks about you and your shenanigans all the time, but she always speaks fondly of you. Even when you were in Europe." Her shoulders finally relaxed. "You're hired. You can move in on Friday and start on Monday and if you'd like. We can go over everything then if that's okay." Her huge brown eyes got wider, "Oh, damn. I didn't even ask you if you actually wanted the job…"
"I do." My response was too quick and I chastised myself internally for being too eager.
"Good." She smiled and my heart palpitated.
She made a step to go back up the stairs and stopped. "Oh! The kids will go and stay with my mom every other weekend, so that should give you a bit of a social life. She's local and will take them to their weekend games and lessons if I'm unavailable."
As she ascended the stairs I stared at her ass and decided that the only social life I wanted in this house was with Isabella Swan. And preferably naked. I didn't know how I was going to pull it off, but my main intention had just changed. Screw being employed.
I was going to be a Manny.
And I was going to sleep with my boss.
Now go read this fantastic story. I insist!
