Extra Credit
The first time I saw Will Munroe I had him pegged as a typical LA douchebag—a little too handsome, a little too rich, a little too into his probiotic kale smoothies. The next time I ran into him—at his daughter’s parent/teacher conference (me: teacher, he: parent)—I noticed his steel grey eyes, his hard chest under a crisp white button down, and his suggestively bare ring finger. I was hooked.If life really imitated art, he’d have swept me off my feet and taken me right there on the principal's desk. Instead, we are stuck in our assigned roles. He’s the workaholic single dad of a precocious girl child, and I’m her fiery substitute teacher. Never the two shall meet. Enter one zany, yurt-dwelling ex-wife, a stock market that never sleeps, and some over-the-top, A-list fundraisers, and I've got plenty of drama ahead. Better to keep my hands to myself.But when Will asks me out for a pancake breakfast, how can I resist? My heart (and my stomach) say yes, but am I willing to risk my job for a short stack and a romp in the hay? A slow, sensual, mind-blowing romp in the hay…But where there’s a Will…

Extra Credit is everything I wanted and more with it's sexy hero, sassy heroine, laugh out loud funnies and sweet sexy times. I've read a lot of funny books and Ms. Dunne ranks right up there at the top. Chelle is ready to mold the minds of young theatre students and she's good at it. Now she just needs someone to give her a shot-permanently. She's moved from place to place temporarily setting up shop until she moves on. Becoming a substitute in a new school district is her final shot at putting down roots. The longer she stays, the more she loves it even if kale isn't her favorite and her crazy hair has probably thrown her chakras permanently out of whack. But one thing she finds here that she really, really likes is Will-the parent to one of her more clever students. He might be a workaholic, no funny business kind of guy but he also fills out his t-shirts really well and is obviously dedicated to his daughter. But as much as Chelle would love to climb on to Will and never let go, it's a no go zone-well, it should be. But what the school doesn't know won't hurt them. As Chelle learns how to navigate the waters that surround life in LA, Will finds it impossible to stop thinking about the spirited theatre teacher whom his daughter adores. She's everything his ex-wife isn't and nothing he thought he wanted yet exactly what he finds he needs. They just have a few things to iron out first. Right from page one, I was hooked. I laughed and laughed. Then laughed some more. Now I live in one of those middle of the country flyover states that people can't tell apart so I found all the references to LA absolutely delightful. It was like LA became part of the story and not just as the setting. Add in the eccentric cast of side characters and I was learning about a life style that I'll likely never encounter and I couldn't get enough. And I can't forget Will and Chelle. Oh Em Gee. I adored them both. They were complete opposites but just so obviously perfect for each other. Will was all quiet and demanding while Chelle was a bit zany but dedicated. Watching them tip toe around each other as they moved closer to combustion was pure romance perfection. Neither was perfect but their problems weren't so outrageous that they didn't make sense and make me believe in them. By the end I was a little giddy and lot ready for more from Ms. Poppy.

But this book did that and more; the unique characters and spirited storyline was pure delightfulness!The charismatic energy between the characters was engaging and utterly humorous. From the moment Will and Chelle met, you could instantly sense their attraction and unconventional relationship yet to come. Knowing their histories, you couldn't help but root for them. They each found a way to overcome any stereotypes they had for the other, and found a real and genuine connection. Every interaction together buzzed with an intensity that only powered their feelings for each other. And their individual personalities made it clear why they fit so well together. Will is your typical man's man, the type of guy who works hard but plays even harder. Tall, dark, and undeniably sexy, I swooned over him just as much as Chelle. And Chelle has a lovable, spit-fire attitude. Her compassion and caring nature balanced her tenacious demeanor. Their relationship was fun and very charming, but obviously not without it's challenges; first being the fact Will has a 10 yr old daughter, and an eccentric, hippie ex-wife. Mind you, I say ex-wife loosely. And I don't want to list the second and third facts, 'cause that would completely spoil the entire plot of the story. Trust me, it gets good! Just the title alone gives you a good hint. ;) Extra Credit was incredibly well written. The comedic dialogue and inner monologues had me laughing until I cried! I don't know how Poppy did it, but this book has everything. Comedy, emotional turmoil, and a bit of dramatic flare. And the sexiness gets you all hot and bothered, you can't help but fan yourself when reading it.If you love a good romcom with entertaining characters, then you definitely need to read Extra Credit! I highly recommend it!*ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.* ~Kelly

Admittedly, I have been dying to read this and I dropped the other things on the "TBR" when my copy of this book appeared. Poppy Dunne, after this book, is officially a one-click author for me. When something is good, well written, well paced, and enjoyable, you want more. Another book, an extended epilogue...the next book. Yup, now works. (Yes, Ms. Dunne, I am already wanting the next one and you haven't released this one. ***grabby hands***)The balance of the humor, the sexy, the relationship, the emotion and the funny are all perfect. And, I don't mean perfect in a book way, but in a real life one. Will, Chelle and Amelia are people. Will's ex Suzonne, she is a person too (although granted someone I would rather not spend time with) but I believed her. I have met people like her. Although, I don't spend much time with them either. I adored Will. He is just perfect, he is the guy you want to go home with, and you definitely know why Chelle is attracted to him. He's a great dad, devoted and really genuinely loves his daughter. I also really was drawn in by the way he treats his ex-wife. Yes, she is a handful, but he is willing to put what his daughter wants above the frustrations he feels with his ex. And, there is a genuineness to it, you really believe that who he is, at his core, is a good guy. Chelle is wonderful, so true to herself, to who she is, to who her parents are (albeit with a little embarrassment there, but I am not going to spoil that...it hints in the beginning and explains about the middle, and it is worth the wait.) I loved her inner dialog. There are so many funny comments and things she thinks that I will never be able to list them all. My first literal LOL was about kale. Seriously. She made kale funny. Try that at home.The other character in the story is Los Angeles. And, it is done well. So often, LA is the setting for a story because it is so recognizeable, but you then read the book and realize that the author doesn't live here and has likely only been here for a visit and saw what they thought was enough to capture life here. They miss by a mile. LA is weird. We are obsessed with really odd things, driving the 101 to the 405 at 4:30pm IS an act of love. The "valley" really is that "place over the hill we don't actually talk about". LA is odd...and to live here, and to love it, you have to be able to see the humor and appreciate the city. Poppy Dunne pulls off both.The humor in this is also refreshing. A lot of romantic comedies leave you feeling like the humor was forced, with an undeveloped romantic storyline, or with characters you don't get to know because the humor was the focus.Nope, nope and nope. The humor is genuine, authentic and more than once it is literal laughing out loud, hard enough that someone in the next room asks if you are ok. The romance is developed, heck, I was in love with Will by the end of this, so all good there. And, you get to know the characters. I feel like I could sit down to coffee with them, that I know them well enough for that not to be awkward.If you haven't figured it out by now, I recommend this book.***This and other reviews featured on our blog “Booked All Night” http://bookedallnightblog.com/ and here: https://www.facebook.com/BookedAllNight/***

Chelle and Will's back and forth banter, as well as their inner thoughts, had me laughing my butt off more times than I can count. It was well-written and nicely paced. Had some witty dialogue as well as some hot sex scenes. We also have two very likable main characters. Chelle was awesome. She was funny. She was sweet. She didn't put up too much resistance to Will. I loved her. Will (who amazingly enough WASN'T a manwhore) was total book boyfriend material. He was charming. He was hot. He was funny. He was a great Dad, AND he was respectful of his ex. Another thing that is like a unicorn in romance books lately. My one and only complaint is I wished we would have gotten a further into the future look at this couple. I would have liked to have seen a baby or two.Two HUGE thumbs up from yours truly.

This book is absurd! And I mean that in the best possible way. My stomach still hurts from laughing too much! It was just what I needed to lighten up my recently dull days. I swear I was grinning and laughing from start to finish. It was a good thing I was reading this alone and in the confines of my home; wouldn’t want the neighbors to think I’ve gone crazy.Substitute theater teacher Chelle Richardson is almost twenty-nine, but she still doesn’t have a stable teaching position. She’s currently teaching at a hippy sort of elementary private school for the sons and daughters of the rich and famous in sunny Los Angeles where the kids are actually enthusiastic about theater, and the teachers are focused on spiritual cleansing. If she doesn’t want to move back with her parents when she turns twenty-nine, she’s going to need that tenure.She meets Will Munroe III on a trail in her morning jog, she pegged him as some handsome yet douche-y rich guy, a dime a dozen in LA. When she sees him again, it’s in in a parent-teacher meeting caused by a ten-year-old girl and Beyonce. Will is actually the father of one of her adorable students, Amelia. Lusting over a student’s parent is pretty much forbidden in the teaching world, but a pancake breakfast and a socially conscious rendition of Oliver Twist for the school play later, and the two are getting to know each other more. Personally and intimately. It’s like being led along in a fairytale, an LA fairytale where the enchanted forest is all exposed brick and casual bongo music, and the enchanter is a fabulously attractive man with a lot of cash and a pinch of arrogance.” It had everything I was looking for in a rom-com—the meet-cute, an awkward yet lovable heroine, a hot, sweet, and six-feet tall of man candy who talks dirty and is an amazing dad (!!!!!!!!), some sexy times here and there, witty banter and hilarious inner dialogue, and a steady pace. It was a hoot getting to know Chelle, Will, adorable little Amelia, Chelle and Will’s canine companions, Archie and Bruno, among others. The side characters were pretty interesting too. Suzonne, Will’s ex-wife who lives in a yurt and talks to goat spirits, Chelle’s parents who had amazing jobs, Emery, Chelle’s friend at school, and the other staff.And you know what, it’s so refreshing to read about a Los Angeles that’s not just about the glitz and glamour. It was fun to read about the quirkier and more chill parts I got a glimpse of when I visited. Alternative lifestyles, the fads, and just the plain weird. I loved it!Extra Credit is a standalone rom-com told in alternating POVs. It’s a quick, fun, and entertaining read filled with humor, sweetness, and craziness all packed together in one hilarious book. If you haven’t read any of Poppy’s books like I have before reading Extra Credit, you’re missing out.And I don’t think I haven’t said this enough—there’s just something about men who are great with kids that’s hot. So a good-looking and devoted single dad? I’m dead. My ovaries are dead.*ARC received in exchange for an honest review. Blog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram

Between her inner rambling, her word vomit, her awkwardness, her clown parents, her passion for life, and her humongous heart, she was an easy character to get on board with. Will was a little hard to connect with at first, but that was only because I was initially unsure of where his head and heart were truly at when it came to his ex. Once that was explained, he too was quite simply adorable. I especially loved who he was as not only a man, but as a father. And don't even get me started on his POV. He could be hilarious too!This was Romantic Comedy at its best so be prepared to laugh, chortle, snicker, guffaw, giggle and snort.

A twenty-eight-year-old wanna be teacher, struggling through yet another temporary job, and desperately trying to land something permanent. Chelle set herself a deadline, if she hasn't scored her dream job, teaching theater to kids, by twenty-nine, she goes back to her parents. I wont disclose why this is so terrible, because spoilers. Enter a free spirited student and her sexy, mouth-wateringly gorgeous, professional dad. Will is the pinnacle of all things sinfully sexy with a wit to match Chelle, and a rocking hot bod. Did I mention how hot he is? But sleeping with a student's parent when you are trying to land the teaching job of your dreams and avoid the circus of moving home with the parents is a really, really bad idea. Really bad. In all seriousness, if you haven't read Poppy Dunne yet, you are missing out. Story lines to die for, characters to love, and top-notch writing.

In the beginning of the story I really thought he might end up being your typical suit, uptight and overworked. However, when we get to his POV he proved to be anything but. I fell in love with him straight away. The love he had for Amelia, the respect he showed for his ex and the sweetness he showed towards Chelle combined with his down to earth sense of humor and all around sexiness make him an a total swoonworthy hero.The banter between Chelle and Will was perfect and don't even get me started on the heat between them. Scorching! Add in the earthy, hippie-like LA scene surrounding them, a semi-crazy ex in Suzonne and the adorable Amelia and this story had it all. Sweet, heat, smart and sexy and all around HILARIOUS, this is a book I'll be rereading time and time again.Poppy Dunne is quickly becoming a go-to author for me and I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next!!Full Review to come at https://www.fictionfangirls.com

    One of my favorite sub-genres in the romance genre is the single parent category. I love to read about a parent who takes care of his/her kid(s) and finds new love. In Extra Credit by Poppy Dunne we have a single dad who falls for the drama teacher of his 10-year-old daughter. Add to that a bit crazy ex and a ‘special’ school and you have a funny, very enjoyable romantic comedy. I love it! “Chelle.” That’s a rugged, masterful voice right next to me, and it’s being wielded by a rugged, masterful One of my favorite sub-genres in the romance genre is the single parent category. I love to read about a parent who takes care of his/her kid(s) and finds new love. In Extra Credit by Poppy Dunne we have a single dad who falls for the drama teacher of his 10-year-old daughter. Add to that a bit crazy ex and a ‘special’ school and you have a funny, very enjoyable romantic comedy. I love it! “Chelle.” That’s a rugged, masterful voice right next to me, and it’s being wielded by a rugged, masterful man. I feel like rugged, masterful should be directly under Will’s name on his business cards. Sorry, I’m mentally stalling for time.” Chelle is a substitute teacher who teaches Drama at Bay of Dreams, an expensive elementary school for the rich and famous in Los Angeles. She does want a permanent position, but so far she hasn’t been offered a real job. Moving from place to place isn’t new to Chelle; as the daughter of clowns (yes, really, real clowns!) she has traveled the country with her parents and a lot of pets in a trailer. Since her life is busy enough as it is, and uncertain when it comes to her future, Chelle isn’t looking for a guy. The father of one of her students however is a bit difficult to resist… “Hi. Chelle Richardson,” I say, giving him my hand for a firm, very collegial handshake. He takes my hand, which sends an unintentional flush through my body. Then, slowly, his eyes travel over me from head to toe, sending a much baser, much more fun flash of heat through me.” Will is still settling into the life of a divorced parent. He and his ex-wife Suzonne didn’t work out, but since they’re still parents to their 10-year-old girl Amelia they have a lot of contact. Will has always been a workaholic; he loves his work and the money he makes with it, so he (and his family) can live comfortably. But the marriage didn’t survive all the hard working, and Suzonne’s passion for yoga, hippie and everything green didn’t help either. Chelle intrigues Will, she’s so different from what he knows, he just can’t stay away. “I’ve never met a woman like that before in my life. Words and images are flashing through my mind, shoving into one another as I walk out of the room and try to get my thoughts in order. The nerve of some people. Red hair. Obstinate. Headstrong. Beyoncé. Dancing. Short. Sexy.” After their first meeting Chelle and Will don’t exactly see eye to eye, but when they find out they have a common interest – Amelia – they try to get along. Chelle and Will have a lot of chemistry, but they don’t want to give into it. Chelle doesn’t want to bring her job in jeopardy, and the whole ‘Will has an ex-wife’ makes her a bit unsure. Will knows he wants Chelle, but he’s not sure how to handle the whole situation. However, this a romantic comedy… So of course Will and Chelle have their happily ever after. Their road is bumpy at times – otherwise it would have been to sweet – but they get there.Extra Credit is my first book by Poppy Dunne. She’s still a new author (this book is only her second book), but I really like her writing. Chelle and Will are a great couple, I love how they are with each other, and with Amelia. Extra Credit is funny without being too over-the-top and it’s not all rainbows and sunshine. Chelle has a lot to figure out about her past and her future, and Will needs to find new grounds with his ex-wife. Towards the end I liked Suzonne, but there were moments I wanted to kick her green yoga butt… I’m all for doing what you want, but don’t force your lifestyle on your kid… “Work Will has been balancing out better with Play Will, and Play Will is my favorite. That’s the Will who plays games with Amelia and me on Saturday nights, who takes me to my favorite spot on the beach at Point Dume. That’s the Will he’s wanted to be for a long time. That’s the Will I want to marry.” I love the story of Will and Chelle, I give Extra Credit 4.5 stars.www.mariekesbooks.com

I had already started and stopped three books previous to this one. See where this is going? Instead of going to another, I forced myself to read this one. This had a lot of humor. LOTS of it. In my opinion too much. I got bogged down with the humor and started to skim it. Sacrilege, I know! I enjoy humor in books. I think the problem I had with this particular book’s humor was it seemed immature and it was unrelenting, unless the couple were having sex. Most of it was internal dialogue as well which made it so much harder for me. I will also admit that I’m not up on all the latest movies, music, tv programs, etc. The hero and heroine make so many references, even in their mind, to current and new age topics that I wasn’t able to “get” the joke. See, not the book’s fault, mine.I will say that I enjoyed Will’s daughter Amelia. She was so exuberant and refreshing. The ex-wife was interesting and though there was a little drama with her it didn’t last long. The sexy times were absolutely steamy, sticky goodness. Hot, hotter, hottest! Yep, that’s how it went when this couple got together.All of that to say this: My rating is a reminder to ME of how I reacted to the book, not what I think others will feel about it. Please take that into consideration. If you enjoy a lot of humor in your reads, this could very well be the perfect book for you!

When I read the blurb, I was hooked and I could not put this one down. Who doesn't want to read about a sex, hot, alpha, who is a single dad to the cutest ten-year-old?

Who doesn't want to read about a sex, hot, alpha, who is a single dad to the cutest ten-year-old? Grab your copy and dive in!Chelle has just started working as a substitute teacher. She teaches theater, traveling to schools that hire her to work with their students and put on a production for families and staff. Chelle lived a rather nomadic life. The daughter of clowns, which I found refreshing and unique, has traveled all over until she went away to college. Now as her twenty-ninth birthday is approaching she needs to find a permanent position or return home. I absolutely loved Chelle's character, she is a spit-fire to say the least. She can banter with the best of them and her description of the people and parents where she is living and working is hilarious. She is head strong, hard working and has a love for children and fur babies and the tall drink of water that is her student's father. Will, stockbroker by day, single dad of a ten-year-old daughter by night. Will isn't your typical single male. He isn't out sleeping with every female he can, no he is helping raise his daughter, while dealing with a divorce from his crazy, hippy loving ex. She lives in a yurt for gods sake! If her silent yoga retreats don't have you laughing out loud, then the banter between Will and Chelle definitely will. When Will's daughter volunteers him to work on the latest theater production, he is ready to help. Anything to spend time with the fiery-redhead that is never far from his thoughts.I seriously loved this story! It was just what I needed to get me through the funk I have been in. Dunne writing is awesome. The chemistry she creates between her characters is crazy hot. The hilarious moments stick with you and you find yourself wanting more. Throw in a crazy ex-wife and cat hoodie wearing ten-year-old and you have this awesome, refreshing, funny, sexy read that you will not be able to put down. I look forward to what comes next from Dunne. She is definitely an author whose books you should grab up!5 Refreshing Hilarious Sexy Stars

The book is told in first person, dual POV and that feeling when the character is having a running commentary with their thoughts. Although it was quite engaging, it sometimes distracts me with the flow of the scenes and makes me disconnect. Other than that, this is hot AF with light drama and a whole lot of laughs!Check out my blog here:

In the five years since graduating she’s traveled to different schools and towns putting on theater productions, her suitcase always packed and ready for the next one. That wouldn’t be a problem except she promised her parents, if she didn’t have a permanent teaching position by the time she was 29, she’d pack her belongings and join them in the family business. While some kids dream of running away to join the circus, Chelle had always dreamed of running away to join an accounting family. She craves a stable life. Chelle actually grew up in the circus, her parents are professional clowns, and she isn’t too thrilled with returning home. She finds herself in Los Angeles, a few months before her birthday, at the Bay of Dreams day school, ready to put on a new production. The ritzy elementary school caters to over-privileged rich kids that take yoga classes, have Tibetan chants and chakra cleansings. While out on a run in Laurel Canyon with her dog, Archie, a cute little mix breed, they run into a bullmastiff, Bruno, and his owner. Said owner is a Bluetooth-wearing, deal making (by the sound of his conversation), crossfit sweaty god. After exchanging a few words, Chelle leaves hot guy in the dust, convinced she’ll never see him again. Funny how the Universe works! Seems hot guy is William Munroe III, a thirty-two year old dad to Amelia, a ten-year old student, at Bay of Dreams. Will and his ex-wife, Suzonne, don’t see eye-to-eye when it comes to Amelia. He’s more let-her-eat ice cream and bacon dad, while and she’s literally a living in a communal yurt, tonic-cleansing and vegan mom. Will is called into the principal’s office because it seems that Amelia is in need of a spiritual cleansing, otherwise known as student counseling. It seems she got a little over zealous to ‘Bootylicious’ in her theater class and to his surprise, Chelle is her new substitute teacher. He’s soon roped in by Amelia to be a volunteer parent for the new production of Oliver. As Chelle and Will are thrown closer and closer together, the funniest things start to happen and we’re along for the ride. “What are you thinking about right now?” he asks, his voice deep and rich with curiosity. “Seltzer,” I answer truthfully. We drive in silence for a few moments longer. “You’re strange.” He thinks a moment. “That’s sexy.” If I had a nickel for every time I’ve Heard that, I’d have a dime. But it’s appreciated all the same, and I slide my hand over his. He winks at me, and I feel heat pool through me, spread to my limbs. I’m relaxeed. I’m secure. It’s party time. This little gem packs a wallop, it was a refreshing surprise! There are plenty of laugh out loud moments. From the witty, quirky things that comes out of Chelle’s mouth to the heartwarming way that Will understands Amelia’s tender heart. What is sexier than a hot dad? A single, ready to mingle Dad, that’s what! When these two are thrown together their banter is quick and hilarious, not to mention they ace their chemistry class

    This book is the right mixture entertainment, swoon, romance and fun. I laughed so much that I couldn’t stop and snorted.

Seriously they are clowns in the circus. The book had just the right amount of serious and light hearted moments. And Will meeting Chelle at school for a meeting in which they sat in beanbag chairs too much. Chelle’s love of bacon donuts made me love her. She didn’t eat as others at the school did and she spoke her mind. She was a breath of fresh air. so was Will. His love for his daughter and how he wanted her to be a little girl and how he fought for that was amazeballs.When we meet Chelle and Will the attraction is there but Chelle doesn’t think to highly of Will. HE gets her to see that he is a fun dad who loves his daughter. that he is hardworking and kind and not into the holistic ways of the school. He sets out to prove he isn’t what she thinks divorced guys are-after a good time only. He slowly wins her over and they have a steamy and entertaining relationship. I love how they get to know each other and support each other. they believe and respect each other as well. They do face some ups and downs but deal with them and work through them when needed. I love the ending. The story is fun and over to soon. You can’t put it down and will laugh throughout the whole book. Will and Chelle will endear you to them and Will’s little girl just grabs your heart and doesn’t let go. The writing is fun and lighthearted and written with spirit and emotion. the story is so entertaining and freeing. A refreshingly fun love story that you don’t want to end.

Chelle was hurt in the past and finds it hard to be anything more than casual with Will in fear she may get hurt again.A little bit of a quirky read but overall I liked it. Some of the book was really out there in terms of storyline and dialogue but I guess that at least made it different. It isn't on my favorite list and I'm not sure I would recommend someone to push it to the front of their reading list but I'm glad I read it....

The two meet at Runyon canyon and already their differences are noticeable. As fate would have it, Chelle happens to be the new substitute theatre teacher at Will's daughter school, and they meet again when Will's daughter "acts" (pun intended) up during class.

This book was funny with Chelle taking the cake with her weird inner monologues and random blurting of things that at times made no sense. The attraction between the two of them was undeniable but there were pesky problems like Will's ex-wife and the fact that intra-personal relationships are a no-no at the school. All in all it was a nice and enjoyable read.

When he runs into Chelle one morning on the running trail, he doesn't realize she is a teacher at his daughters school. When he is called into the prinicpal's office later on and sees the girl he couldn't get out of his head, the situation is looking up, until he ends up working on the school play with her. Chelle is a substitute teacher, just waiting for a school to take her on full time and when she realizes that the man from the trail is a students father all she can think is there is no good that can come from being attracted to a student's parent, no good at all, but the closer she works with Will the harder it gets. When one work meeting turns into an overnight stay, will things be clearer in the light of day? When Chelle realizes that this situation with Will is pretty much the same as one in the past, will she still give this a chance? Can Will get Chelle to see how good they are together, or is this just doomed from the start?This was a cute, fast read with some funny bits, and some hot sexy times. The author has Chelle come across as bit of a moron at some points, with things just popping out of her mouth and not making any sense. Other than that, this was an ok read, I give it 4 stars.

Sweet, sexy, and hilarious, this opposites attract story was entertaining from the very first page.Chelle is an elementary teacher who travels around teaching kids about theater and putting on a production before moving on to the next school. She would love a permanent position and to settle down but since no opportunity has presented itself, she is content doing what she loves, teaching children any chance she can get.Will is a numbers guy. He's a stockbroker who takes his job seriously and is great at it. He's also a father who loves his little girl, Amelia, more than anything in the world and wants to be involved in anyway possible. When Amelia can't stop raving about Chelle, Will takes notice of his daughter's new favorite teacher.Chelle first meets Will when she sets up a meeting to discuss a situation at school concerning Amelia. Immediately they start off on the wrong foot but the attraction they feel can't be ignored. Soon they end up giving into their desires, heating up the pages as they try to navigate a casual relationship while maintaining professional one. What happens when hearts get thrown into the mix and things are no longer just casual?This book was a great mix of humor, heart, and sugary sweetness with just the right amount of steam. It's witty and smart and oh so funny.I loved Chelle and Will together. They both try to convince themselves they are not attracted to the other and it's so funny how they fight the obvious draw they feel. The banter is hilarious, and Chelle's feistiness and Will's seriousness would seem likely to make things clash between them but on the contrary, they are perfect for each other. They end up opening up to each other and she brings more laughter and lightness into his world and he takes her seriously and loves her quirky nature.Chelle was such a likable character. I loved her passion for her job and her love and commitment for the children. She loved her family no matter what while still having her own dreams. I completely understood her reservations about starting a relationship with Will as well as her reaction to the ex drama. I loved that she could laugh at the funny stuff in her life and didn't take everything too seriously. The situations she gets herself into when she is oblivious to things around her and the scatterbrained thoughts that flew through her mind constantly made me giggle.Will comes off as a jerk in the beginning but we soon find out that he is sweet and has a huge heart. He is sexy and smart, and I loved that though he has a serious job he knows how to let loose. I felt his feelings for Chelle even when he thought he could push them away. I loved that he was willing to go all in and knew what meant the most to him.Will was an amazing father and I adored his relationship with his daughter, Amelia. Talk about heart-meltingly sweet. Amelia was a beautiful addition to the story. She is loud and energetic but also sweet, caring, and a dreamer. She put a smile on my face and I couldn't help but love her. Her connection with Chelle was beautiful and I loved that she had a wonderful woman to look up to.Everything in this book made me smile. It's an entertaining, well-paced romance that warmed my heart, and I can't wait to see what Poppy Dunne comes up with next.*ARC generously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review*

    The path to true love can often be a bit more circuitous than we'd like, and no one understands that better than Chelle. The daughter of clowns, she had an unconventional upbringing yet wished for traditional stability (who else would long to be the daughter of an accountant - and I say this as the daughter of an accountant), and she is an itinerant theatre teacher currently working at a school so earthy that it calls the janitor's closet "a holistic center of well being." Her charges are about The path to true love can often be a bit more circuitous than we'd like, and no one understands that better than Chelle. The daughter of clowns, she had an unconventional upbringing yet wished for traditional stability (who else would long to be the daughter of an accountant - and I say this as the daughter of an accountant), and she is an itinerant theatre teacher currently working at a school so earthy that it calls the janitor's closet "a holistic center of well being." Her charges are about to stage Oliver!, only Charles Dickens might not recognize this take on his story: Oliver and his compadres sing about saving whales.Chelle has had boyfriends, but nothing serious. She's terrified that she will have to return home and live with her parents, who are decidedly not retired from the clown business. At one point, they want to head to dinner in full makeup because why pass up the opportunity to make people happy? One thing Chelle took away from her parents is the sense that the next job might require some traveling. She's accustomed to heading out for the next gig.While on a run with her dog, she meets Will, a gorgeous and successful lawyer who happens to have a daughter who attends Bay of Dreams. He makes his interest in Chelle quite apparent, but she resists. The memories of a previous relationship with a single dad plague her, causing her to curb her desires. Plus, any romantic engagement with a parent of a Bay of Dreams student could cause problems, and Chelle likes this job. She wants to stay there.If you are familiar with Poppy Dunne's books, then you know that she can write Hot Romance, always has a Hot Hero, and she can also make you laugh. This book ticks all of those boxes as well. Will is delicious and irresistible (despite how hard Chelle tries to prove otherwise), and the man knows his way around a woman. For one thing, he's smart enough to show up with food. When he and Chelle have a "private parent-teacher conference" (wink wink), they burn up the pages.In Chelle, Dunne has a wacky heroine who is impossible not to adore. She tends to say the wrong thing, and has more scarves than Nordstroms, but she's also loving and supportive. She believes in her students and wants nothing more than for them to feel successful. It's no wonder that Will is drawn to her.I enjoyed this book so much. I repeatedly laughed out loud, and during the sexy times, I reacted with quivering loins. This is a fun, warm, HOT book.
