He's a "gift"--a referral from the Matchmaking Mamas--sent by Tiffany Lee's mother to do her bathroom remodel. But the real surprise is that Tiffany already knows Eddie Montoya. When they were little, he was her playground protector. When they were in college, Eddie was her campus competition. And now she's a teacher and he's her handyman?
Well, just on weekends. On Monday morning, Eddie shows up at Tiffany's school--as the new third-grade teacher. When a fund-raising contest between classes is announced, the old rivalry heats up. And it's game on! Except as the playful competition intensifies, so do their feelings for each other. And Eddie begins to wonder if they might work better...as a team.
Honestly I was a bit on and off when it came to Tiffany because she just needed to take a chill pill at times but then again, when she first let him into her out without credentials even if cleared by her mom seed a bit weird. Like he could've been anyone and a little lock wouldn't do much if he really wanted to get at her. That was just something in the beginning of the book that really nagged at me. I thought that she was a bit too competitive that it bordered on annoying. Then there is the sweet Eddie that I did find his characters nice, sweet and I just really liked his characters. I did like that spark between the two, while on Tiffany's side she can be a bit overbearing Eddie really balanced things out with his good natured self. Overall if your looking for a sweet yet cheesy romance with some hard headed characters when you'll want to check out this book. I really enjoyed it.
