I colored inside the lines.
Dotted my i's and crossed my t's.
Avoided connections, limited questions, and didn’t get personal. Playing it safe kept my identity hidden.
What was meant to be a working holiday had me straying from the safety of the sidelines. He tempted me, and I fell – hard
Throwing caution to the wind and my rules out the window
Keep it light, no strings, no expectations
What could go wrong? It wasn't like I'd see him after my vacation...
For years my rules kept the attention off of me. That was until he walked into class.
As a varsity athlete, I believed practice made perfect. I was a player on and off the field.
I had planned to work on my techniques for years to come.
Who could have predicted the impact of my casual holiday hookup?
Falling for her wasn’t part of the game plan.
She insisted on no contact after we left the island – I reluctantly agreed. Imagine our surprise when we ended up in the same classroom.
Screw the optics. Screw the blurred boundaries.
Relegation to any zone that puts me out of her bed isn’t an option.
To hell with her rule book...I’m competitive by nature and won’t stop until she’s mine.
BUT AT AMAZON here.
MY IMPRESSIONS OF THIS BOOK:
From the first page to the last I was drawn to this story and the twists and turns of this older woman/younger man romance. As an older woman I found myself quickly connecting with Wren. Her job and friends are appealing and I could easily see myself a part of her world which made me like her and root for her through every twist and turn. As a teacher she has to conduct herself a certain way, but once she met Eli how she should act and how she wants to act start warring with each other.
I liked Wren from the very start! She's had a tough life, lots of loss, and even now has to keep certain aspects of herself hidden. She needs some fun in her life, needs some unconditional acceptance, and that's exactly where Eli comes in! Eli's young and sexy, swoonworthy in his obvious attraction to Wren. There were a few moments of self-centeredness from him though, but I attributed it to his youth and forgave him as he treated Wren like a queen. Throughout the story they're a sizzling pair and I enjoyed watching their carefree romance start while on vacation. Returning home he remains committed as their relationship gets put through the wringer through some expected twists and turns, as well as a few surprises thrown in along the way. On a whole this is a great start to a new series that's crafted a sizzling story of a forbidden romance and the rocky road two people take to reach HEA, a story full of heart and soul!
My rating for this is a B+
