He is a teacher of your dreams. Handsome, sporting a pack of six-abs, deliciously yummy and… billionaire. What is more, he can be very… persistent when he wants something.
New York Times bestselling author Melody Anne’s novel of dangerous secrets, dark pasts, and sizzling heat.
No one would guess that dedicated teacher Arden Forbes is a billionaire. His profession gives him a purpose that wealth alone can’t provide. He’s developing another passion, too, for Keera Thompson, the new principal. She’s beautiful, enigmatic, guarded, and—after a series of violent school break-ins—in need of protection. And Arden is eager to supply it. But what he wants most is to unearth the mysteries that surround her.
After a troubling past, Keera thought she’d be safe in this sleepy town and that she’d never be shaken again. Yet nothing has unsettled Keera more than her desire for Arden—honorable, gorgeous, and available when she craves him. But despite their explosive chemistry, when it comes to letting Arden in, Keera has her limits…and her secrets.
As the threats escalate, Keera fears that everything she’s been running from is closing in, and there’s only one man to trust. But will the truth drive Arden away…or will it bring the two closer than ever before?
I was so, soooo honored to get an early copy of this book for an honest review. I love the books of Melody Anne, so I expected it to be a lovely adventure. But oh my god, how wonderful this books was!
Okay, I have to say, I did not read the first book in the series – yet-, but I already bought it. It is surely on my next-to-read list after Arden. Our hero is your typical high school teacher in a typical high school from a typical family. He is handsome, gorgeous, has abs others would kill for, he comes from a billionaire family and just recently got a retired police dog from his -also very handsome, must run in the family genes- police officer brother to aid their investigation. The police got wind of drugs being done in the school Arden is teaching at.
So very typical, huh?
Our heroine, Keera just got this job at the school, and she is not happy about the news. As principal it is not just the pure fact that somebody runs drugs at her school under her nose, it is a double blow for her also because of her past. She is determined to protect the children in her care, so she does the unthinkable and teams up with the very infuriating co-worker with his adorable german shepherd.
I cannot lie, this book was fantastic. The characters amazing, their development well-written and the dialogues just as sassy as they needed to be. The suspense keeps you on your toes if the heated exchange between our main protagonists are not enough. It was a light-read, but not in the bad way. Not the least. A very humorous, hot contemporary read with just the right amount of suspense. If you love these kind of books or you are a fan of Melody Anne then you will be over-the-moon for this books. I guarantee it.
I want to say thanks to Montlake Romance again, for sending me an ARC review. Love you guys!
