Drama teacher Sarah Callahan has been falling for Harrison Academy's hot, new chemistry teacher since the first day of school. Unfortunately, this sexy nerd has a policy against dating coworkers after his relationship with a teacher at his former school crashed and burned. So what do you do when you’re hot for teacher? Pretend to be drunk so he’ll take advantage of you of course.
Reed Barron has done a great job resisting the beautiful, quirky Sarah. Then comes the night she parties a little too hard and begs him to kiss her. How’s a guy supposed to hold out against…begging? Chemistry like theirs doesn’t happen every day, but Reed isn’t going to give their romance a chance. He’s learned that when things get too intense, it’s safer to retreat.
Armed with Shakespeare quotes and a Goldendoodle puppy, Sarah is determined to teach Reed how to open his heart. But when he’s offered the opportunity of a lifetime to teach abroad, it looks like she might lose him—and their shot at love—forever.
Windy City Bachelors Book 2
I am voluntarily reviewing an advanced reader copy of this book, Much Ado About Bachelors by Caitlyn Blue.
I loved reading Windy City Bachelors book 1 (Emma & Zach), The Trouble With Bachelors, very much and thought it was positively wonderful but somehow I love this book even more. Maybe it's because I already know the characters. They feel like old friends I'm getting to hang out with. They are just so much fun and outrageously entertaining. I love the closeness and love they all feel for each other. They know the true meaning of family and are always there for one another. They are very real, relatable and believable. I couldn't help but love them. All of this is thanks to the marvelously talented, Caitlyn Blue.
Each book in the series is a standalone with its own HEA but is much more enjoyable if read in order as it is about a fun group of young women (cousins, sisters and friend) that share a house together and one after another find love.
Sarah and Reed have been coworkers and friends for about 6 months but Sarah has been wanting more than friendship for pretty much that whole time. Sensing that if she acted on her feelings, she would scare Reed and not only blow any chance for a romantic relationship but would also lose him as a friend and that was a chance she was not willing to take. His friendship meant way to much to her, if that is all she could have with him then so be it. Then Reed's cousin, Jackson came to visit and things began to change. Reed didn't like how Jackson was paying attention to Sarah. And Sarah couldn't handle how her sister, Brynn was flirting with Reed when they met for drinks and dancing.
Sarah decided it was time to shake things up a bit and see how Reed would react. Begin, Operation Seduction! Sarah ends up pretending to be drunk and makes a pass at Reed. This definitely gets his attention and his motor revving but is it too much, too fast for Reed? Has Sarah gone too far and destroyed the close relationship that she and Reed had? Reed seems to be very appreciative of Sarah's advances and return the attraction but is he only interested in a one time thing or could he want more, like Sarah does?
