#ARC #Review: Extra Credit by Poppy Dunne
The first time I saw Will Munroe I had him pegged as a typical LA douchebag—a little too handsome, a little too rich, a little too into his probiotic kale smoothies. The next time I ran into him—at his daughter’s parent/teacher conference (me: teacher, he: parent)—I noticed his steel grey eyes, his hard chest under a crisp white button down, and his suggestively bare ring finger. I was hooked.
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...
Funny and cute! I ate up the pages in just a few hours. Extra Credit was the contemporary romance title I needed to get me out of my reading slump! If you know me, then you know I LOOOVE a meet cute, and Extra Credit features not only one meet cute, but TWO meet cutes. How could I not love Will's dog tackling Chelle on their morning walk? And how could I not die over how awesome it was that Will ended up being the parent of one of Chelle's students?! AWWWWWW YEAH. Let the fun begin!
What follows is a sweet, light-hearted story with some humor for good measure! The characters were likable (esp. Will--I mean, the man brought her teriyaki!! I know that doesn't sound like a big deal, but it is!), and I thoroughly enjoyed their story. Although, I kind of wish there were a bit more humorous interactions before they so easily decided to give it a shot. Otherwise, I really did enjoy the minimal angst and HEA. A great read if you're looking for a fun-size read between more complicated tales!
