Downsized, broke, and dumped, 38-year-old Marley sneaks home to her childhood bedroom in the town she couldn’t wait to escape twenty years ago. Not much has changed in Culpepper. The cool kids are still cool. Now they just own car dealerships and live in McMansions next door. Oh, and the whole town is still talking about that Homecoming she ruined her senior year.
Desperate for a new start, Marley accepts a temporary teaching position. Can the girl banned from all future Culpepper High Homecomings keep the losing-est girls soccer team in school history from killing each other and prevent carpal tunnel in a bunch of phone-clutching gym class students?
Maybe with the help of Jake Weston, high school bad boy turned sexy good guy. When the school rumor mill sends Marley to the principal’s office to sign an ethics contract, the tattooed track coach, dog dad, and teacher of the year becomes her new fake boyfriend and alibi—for a price. The Deal: He’ll teach her how to coach if she teaches him how to be in a relationship.
Who knew a fake boyfriend could deliver such real orgasms? But it’s all temporary. The guy. The job. The team. There’s too much history. Rock bottom can’t turn into a foundation for happily ever after. Can it?
This story is about overcoming your own fears in your past and gaining confidence in yourself. The book is filled with contemporary romance and has some humorous fiction to keep you reading. I loved every minute of this read; it was a fabulous book.
Marley’s life has taken a turn to rock bottom. She is homeless, jobless, and just moved back in with her retired parents. Her mom is the town gossip and manages to get her a job at the local school as a physical education teacher and girls soccer coach; albeit temporary, it is better than nothing.
We also get her crush’s point of view on a hot teacher named Jake, who she happened to date in high school. This small town is full of history and gossip. I love the outrageous prank. While this story is centered around high school, I also really enjoy that the main characters aren’t in high school.
This book gets steamy and so rebellious. Omg, as if this couldn’t get any better, it does, and a contract to boot. This book has some laugh-out-loud comedy in it, nothing like a walk to shame to have you rolling.
The book does jump back to the past quite often. I do love how this book ended, and omg, the book’s characters were outstanding.
