Adult Contemporary Romance / Realistic Fiction
Fear is sabotage’s sweetest weapon.
Kate has no time for meaningless romantic charades, and definitely no time for hot college professors who are full of themselves and smitten with her. Constantly battling eviction notices, tuition she can’t afford, and a sick, dependent mother, the last thing she needs is to be distracted with someone else’s complicated baggage.
When she stumbles into Ryan Campbell’s creative writing class, he is only “Mr. Campbell” to her, until Ryan finds himself captivated by her writing and she is forced to face their mutual attraction. His cocky know-it-all syndrome is enough to send her running in the other direction, and his posse of female admirers and playboy reputation are enough to squander any odds in her favor.
But underneath Ryan’s abrasive facade is something to behold, and she can’t stay away for long. Ryan and Kate must decide who they’re willing to become and fight against their former selves if they want to make things work. That’s if academia, vicious vixens, old skeletons, and their own mastery at self-destruction don’t pummel their efforts first.
***I received a free copy of this book from the author an honest review.***Once again I’ve failed at judging a book by its cover. There's nothing paranormal about this book. The cover had me fooled; but I loved it anyway! I’ll just start by saying the lead characters were completely dysfunctional yet completely perfect for each other. This was a crash course in Emotional Baggage Romance 101. There were so many scenarios where I thought the romance would plummet; and then there were other actions where I thought it would soar. The author does an excellent job with playing with the reader’s emotions while keeping you in suspense. Personally I’ve never meet anyone like the characters in this book, but it was fun reading about them. I look forward to seeing what else this author has to offer in adult contemporary romance. I would be interested in seeing the sequel, if any, only if the characters are past all the drama.
