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…
While snogging a parent.
Snogging’s a great word.
Okay, brain. Let’s get back to it.
“That was…” Will’s voice trails off. The tone is deep, rugged, sexy.
I respond, “Shhweee.” I think I was looking for the word sweet, but we’ll never know.
“Very,” he agrees. He steps away, even though every molecule in my body right now is telling me to fling myself back at this tall, infuriating, infuriatingly gorgeous man. But just as I’m about to throw caution and my bra to the wind, someone adorable comes bouncing up to us, her mouse-eared hoodie still on.
Chelle Richardson is a substitute teacher with a mission. She needs the school she’s currently working at to offer her a permanent position or else… The last thing she needs is to walk into a parent – teacher conference to find out the hottie she met on the trail is the parent of one of her students.
Will Munroe is a picture perfect stock broker. The guy is big, handsome and stiff as a washboard…unless he’s around his little girl.
When free spirited Chelle collides with Will, things will happen to them and he will not be able to deny the attraction he feels for the quirky woman who’s always standing up for her ideas and even his own daughter.
This book is fast paced, ridiculously funny and sexy to boot. This is a laugh out loud rom-com without any lingering drama. I myself picked it out after a book hangover and it has proven to be exactly what I needed to read.
I loved the characters and their interactions. Even when Chelleis at her most serious she’s charming and funny and the back and forth with Will is witty and just too cute. Definitely a thumbs up!

Poppy writes books with relatable heroines who speak their minds and whose riotous inner dialogue reflects their complex characters. Her goal is to deliver a story that has equal parts heart, romance and humor. Her heroes are swoon worthy, yet hold on to your suspension of disbelief, because they pick up their own socks and cook.
In her free time, she looks for hobbies other than Netflix and procrastinating to fill out this author bio. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and children.
