A huge UGH at the title, but let’s see what it’s about. Because that’s what matters, not the name we give it. After all, a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.

Grace Thompson didn’t want a student teacher. And she sure as hell didn’t want it to be Levi Mondez.

Let’s just say they got off to a rocky start.

To be fair, it wasn’t entirely her fault. How was she to know he was also the lead singer of local rock band, Mondez? How was she to know he got off on her short temper? And how was she to know her best friend, Riley would fall for him?

Hard.

If he wasn’t so damn gorgeous it might have made the whole mess easier for Grace to handle. If he didn’t transform her female parts into a blazing furnace, and if he hadn’t confused the hell out of her already bruised heart, life might have turned out a heck of a lot differently.

But he was, he did, and he had.

She was screwed.

So right off the bat, we’ve got a fun twist on a familiar trope: they work together. But she’s the boss, he’s a student. A STUDENT! Kudos to the rocker with a backup plan.

AND, to take it a fresh step further, she doesn’t work for the band or in the biz at all. Nope. She’s a TEACHER.

I love this already. Add in a love triangle and the potential to muck up a set of best friends and we’ve got fresh and fun all over the place.

Well, between the covers, anyway. And maybe that’s a pun and maybe it’s not. I won’t know until I’ve read this one.
