My Review: I've seen this book around and even did promos for the book. So you can imagine how excited I was when the author asked if I'd review it. And well it was so freaking good.
A cute romance, though it didn't start that way. Ryan has a horrid wife, and is currently getting a divorce from her. He has a tough job and I hated that his kid is in the middle of it all. That is never ever a good thing and can really affect the kid. But what I also don't like is when you get told not to spend time with your kid. If you are a fit parent and want to be involved, then thats great.
Then Lindsay enters the picture. His daughter's teacher and Ryan sees more than just a teacher. He doesn't really do anything. But that quickly changes. A fast turn over and Ryan is romantic and kind and really falls for Lindsay.
I loved reading about them and see them fall in love. Despite what is going on, both are strong and amazing characters. I'm sure you'll love reading about these two. Such a great read and worth the time!
