Head of the class...

Garrett Daniels has this whole life thing figured out.

The cocky, charismatic former high school star quarterback is an idolized football coach and "cool" teacher in the hometown where he's not just a golden boy—he's platinum. He has good friends, a great house on the lake, and the best damn sidekick a man could ask for: Snoopy, the albino beagle.

Then...Callie Carpenter comes home.

And knocks him right on his tight end zone.

Back to school...

Callie has a pretty sweet life herself...on the other side of the country. But circumstances—that she'd prefer to never speak of again—have brought her back home, helping out her parents and substitute teaching at her old high school.

Now she's facing bickering, raging hormones, constant gossip, awkward weirdness, and drama galore...and that's just the teachers.

Just like old times...

When Garrett offers to show his former high school sweetheart the secrets of his winning teacher ways, Callie jumps at the chance—and then has to stop herself from jumping him.

Good friends are all they can ever be.

Or...these teachers just might end up getting schooled—hard—by love.

 

Excerpt~

I sit down in the desk chair and lean back, balancing on the hind legs like my mother always told me not to. I fold my hands behind my head, put my feet on the desk, and sigh with contentment. Because life is sweet.

It’s going to be a great year.

They’re not all great—some years suck donkey balls—my best players graduate and it’s a rebuilding year, which means a lot of ‘L’s’ on the board, or sometimes you just get a crappy crop of students. But this year’s going to be awesome—I can feel it.

And then, something catches my eye outside the window in the parking lot.

Someone.

And my balance goes to shit.

I swing my arms like a baby bird, hang in the air for half a second…and then topple back in a heap. Not my smoothest move.

But right now, it doesn’t matter.

I pull myself up to my feet, step over the chair towards the window, all the while peering at the blond in the navy blue pencil skirt walking across the parking lot.

And the ass that, even from this distance—I would know anywhere.

Callaway Carpenter. Holy shit.

She looks amazing, even more beautiful than the last time I saw her…than the first time I saw her. You never forget your first. Isn’t that what they say? Callie was my first and for a long time, I thought she’d be my only.

The first time I laid my eyes on her, it felt like getting sacked by a three-hundred pound defensive lineman with an axe to grind. She looked like an angel. Golden hair framing petite, delicate features—a heart-shaped face, a dainty jaw, a cute nose and these big, round, blinking green eyes I wanted to drown in.

Wait…back up…that’s not actually true. That’s a lie.

I was fifteen when I met Callie, and fifteen year old boys are notorious perverts, so the first thing I noticed about her wasn’t her face. It was her tits—they were full and round and absolutely perfect.

The second thing I noticed was her mouth—shiny and pink with a bee-stung bottom lip. In a blink, a hundred fantasies had gone through my head of what she could do with that mouth…what I could show her how to do.

Then I saw her angel face. That’s how it happened.

And just like that—I was gone.

We were “the” couple in high school—Brenda and Eddie from that Billy Joel song. The star quarterback and the theater queen.

She was the love of my life, before I had any fucking idea what love was…and then, still, even after I did.

We broke up when she went away to college and I stayed here in Jersey—couldn’t survive the distance. It was a quiet ending, when I went out to visit her in California, no drama or hysterics. Just some hard truths, tears, one last night together in her dorm room bed, and a morning of goodbye.

She never really came home again after that. At least, not long enough for us to run into each other. I haven’t seen her in years—in a lifetime.

But she’s here now.

At my school.

And you can bet Callie’s sweet ass I’m going to find out why.

 

Review~

A funny and sweet second chance romance that made my heart flutter.

The story is fun and the side characters were great. They added so much to this story for me. I liked Garrett and Callie’s chemistry but several moments were more of “telling” and not “showing” that kinda made those fall flat for me. This is the reason behind my rating.

I enjoy all of Emma’s books and stories. She always delivers stories that make my heart smile. They have everything I need when a lighter book is what I am looking for. This new series is going to be great, I can already tell. I can’t wait to read the next one from Emma.
