Title: Henry & Me
Author: Sasha Clinton
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: July 5, 2017
When we were in college, Henry Stone asked me out and I shot him down in the most humiliating way possible.
He was a nerd and I was the golden girl of the theatre society, destined to make it big in Hollywood, so how could there be anything between us?
Now, six years later, as an out-of-work actress who has to take on a housekeeping job to stay afloat, I run into him again—and boy, has he made it big.
As I begin to clean his house and take care of his precocious nephew, I realize how wrong I was about him. He’s sexy, smart, kind, everything.
But I have demons that he can’t fight. Demons that keep me away from love.
One thing’s for sure: This housekeeper gig is going to be the hardest role of my life.

Review by Barbara
Love this story! The author has written a wonderful storyline with a several meaningful messages; at least to me. It’s an awesome story about how mean college kids can be to those that are different or in a different social standing, about lessons learned the hard way, about never judging a book by it’s cover, about never underestimating yourself and to follow your heart or passions and not giving up, about standing up for what you believe and and to remember that things have a way of coming back on you years later and biting you on the butt. Yep all that is wrapped up in a funny witty storyline. The characters and the their banter will have you smiling, laughing and at times wanting to either scream or just shake them to get it together.
It started years ago in college when Max just “knew” she would become a well know actress and Henry, a nerdy prop guy, had the audacity to ask her out. Rather than just say no she was very rude and hateful. Now years later Max has fallen from her high horse and ends up a housekeeper and nanny to Lucien, a very precocious 9 year old. Oh wait I fail to mention she’s working for the “rich and successful” Henry Stone! Yep the same Henry she blasted years ago. Let the fun begin (because honestly the spoiled Max knows zip about housekeeping or being a nanny).
I can’t recommend this great storyline enough. I suggest 1-clicking it now, sitting back and simply enjoying this fun, flirty yet meaningful story about Max, Henry and a really great supporting cast!
Review by Kathy
Henry & Me is a wonderfully written RomCom that will warm your heart just as much as it makes you chuckle. It brings you through the years of Henry and Max, from their first meeting and her shooting down his request for a date because he was a nerd and she was beautiful and going to be a star. But the future is not set in stone and you know how things usually end up with nerds, right?!?!?! Yea...that happens too!
The characters are well written and quite loveable, especially the little precocious Lucian, Henry's 9 year old nephew who is cunning, smart and gives Max a run for her money. Henry, well yes he's a nerd, but he is now a successful and wealthy nerd who has grown into his own (and into his body) and is quite handsome. Max still has her beauty, she's smart (but not Henry kinda of smart...or Lucian for that matter as he reminds her quite often how stupid she is). But her dreams were ruined by the guy she was living with and now she lives with her brother and his wife and needs to get a job to get out of their house. And this is where things take a turn and really get interesting, in both their lives.
This story will have smiling, laughing, frowning, and irritate you a bit at times, but when all is said and done, you will smile and smile big!
Blank. My mind goes totally blank. A deeply disturbing feeling coils under my ribs, spreading its coldness throughout my body.
Tumor? Did he say tumor? The stuff you get when you’ve got cancer?
No. No, no, no. I can’t lose him. I cannot. In these terribly depressing times, when my career has failed and my luck’s pulled a Houdini on me, Lucien and Henry are the only people making my life worthwhile. I really, really anticipate seeing him every morning, making him breakfast, talking to him. I don’t want him to go.
“Tumor, did you say?” My lip wobbles.
“I didn’t mean to scare you.” He puts both his hands under the arch of his back for support. Does it still hurt there? “Maybe it’s my imagination, but when I was diagnosed with cancer four years ago, I felt a similar pain in my back, and I was confident it was nothing…but I was wrong,” Henry says, in a voice that milks every ounce of my emotions.
I don’t want to cry for him. But I do. On the inside.
And then poof goes my promise to not get near him, not touch him, not put my arms around him, draw him close and comfort him. I do it all.
My cheek sweeps an arc over his shoulder blade, and in those moments, the world is pure and beautiful and there is no such thing as fear. I don’t even recoil.
Maybe, I think, it’s because I know he’s a good person. The reason doesn’t even matter. What matters is to comfort him.
“Don’t feel bad for me.” Henry winds one arm around me.
The urge to protect him that arises within me at that moment tells me more than I need to know.
“I’m not feeling bad for you. I’m praying that you’re wrong.”
I don’t even recognize the person who says that.
When did I become someone who cares for other people? When did Henry Stone become someone who could tear my soul to pieces with a simple glance? When did he go from being a nobody I wouldn’t look at twice in a million years to making my heart race like a F1 racecar in his presence? Have I been blind all along or has he always been so fuckin’ beautiful?
