The first time I saw Will Munroe I had him pegged as a typical LA douchebag—a little too handsome, a little too rich, a little too into his probiotic kale smoothies. The next time I ran into him—at his daughter’s parent/teacher conference (me: teacher, he: parent)—I noticed his steel grey eyes, his hard chest under a crisp white button down, and his suggestively bare ring finger. I was hooked.
If life really imitated art, he’d have swept me off my feet and taken me right there on the principal’s desk. Instead, we are stuck in our assigned roles. He’s the workaholic single dad of a precocious girl child, and I’m her fiery substitute teacher. Never the two shall meet. Enter one zany, yurt-dwelling ex-wife, a stock market that never sleeps, and some over-the-top, A-list fundraisers, and I’ve got plenty of drama ahead. Better to keep my hands to myself.
But when Will asks me out for a pancake breakfast, how can I resist? My heart (and my stomach) say yes, but am I willing to risk my job for a short stack and a romp in the hay? A slow, sensual, mind-blowing romp in the hay…
But where there’s a Will…

I don’t know what it is with book covers lately the majority seem just…uninspiring. There isn’t anything wrong with this cover per se it’s just boring. Another hot man body slapped on with boring typography added. This book was AMAZEBALLS, and it deserves a cover that expresses that. Nothing about this cover gives you a HINT of what the book is about.
My cover issues aside, this book was HILARIOUS! Chelle and Will’s back and forth banter, as well as their inner thoughts, had me laughing my butt off more times than I can count. It was well-written and nicely paced. Had some witty dialogue as well as some hot sex scenes.
We also have two very likable main characters. Chelle was awesome. She was funny. She was sweet. She didn’t put up too much resistance to Will. I loved her. Will (who amazingly enough WASN’T a manwhore) was total book boyfriend material. He was charming. He was hot. He was funny. He was a great Dad, AND he was respectful of his ex. Another thing that is like a unicorn in romance books lately. My one and only complaint is I wished we would have gotten a further into the future look at this couple. I would have liked to have seen a baby or two.
Two HUGE thumbs up from yours truly.
