Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Beachwalk Press
What woman wouldn't want a young sexy guy have an interest in her? Certainly not Mia, but seeing him eye her in the coffee shop is one thing, running into again later is totally another.
When the object of her little fantasy turns up as a teacher at her son's school and the man who saves the day and gets her son to hospital when he gets hurt, makes sure the two getting together inevitable.
Curt can't believe that the Mia is the mother of boy he helps out. After seeing her at the coffee shop he thought he'd never get the chance to meet her and that would be a real shame. It doesn't take long for the two to start a relationship, but can Mia continue knowing that he he's younger than she is and may wind up breaking his heart.
Good hero and good romantic chemistry brings this story together. Very sexy and well written love scenes.
One-on-one instruction never felt so right—or so wrong.
There's nothing unusual about Mia Page's attraction to the young science teacher at the middle school. After all, she's not the only one who finds him enticing. But when he pulls her son aside to ask for her phone number, she knows she's in serious trouble. Since her divorce four years earlier, she's been out of circulation, choosing to focus on parenting instead, and she's not entirely sure she can handle an entanglement with the sexy Mr. Walden.
There are also other reasons why getting involved with Curt would be a bad idea. He's two years shy of thirty, and she's on the downside of that unmentionable number. He's adamant about never having kids, and she has a son. Even the guy's romantic gifts are suspect. Energy saving light bulbs? He has to be kidding.
On the other hand, he's fun, sweet, and smart. He stimulates her intellectually, emotionally, and Lord help her, physically, opening her eyes to life outside her comfortable world. Yet their differences quietly gnaw at Mia even while she succumbs to their undeniable chemistry.
As their romance deepens, so do Mia's fears that Curt will eventually hurt her. On edge, all it takes is an innocent comment to provoke her into drawing first blood. Mia recklessly wounds Curt, learning only too late that this blade cuts both ways. Frantic to make amends, she fears it might be too late to admit the feelings she's tried so hard to suppress.
