Review:

When Kenzie asked me to review Teacher’s Pet, I was thrilled.  I have been waiting impatiently for this book to come and then waiting to buy Teacher’s Pet.  With the holidays, money was tight but I vowed I would buy it and read it.  Well, I didn’t have to but I would surely pay Kenzie for this book.

This story starts off hot and never lets up on the heat level.  But wait…there is so much more than two people that are so hot for each other that they are like bunnies.  There is passion, misunderstandings, emotions, children, school politics, scandal, town gossip and an evil soccer mom.  Kenzie has taken a troupe, widowed woman with children, and put a fresh spin on it.  The moment that Tammy locks eyes on Kevin she really didn’t know what the outcome would hold for her or her heart.  Kevin knew from their first meeting that he had to have her mind, body and soul.  Their first coupling was an act of impulse and Tammy fearful of what transpires, disappears.  Kevin has to wait 3 months until he sees her again.

I know what your thinking?  Children in a romance book?  Is this Harlequin?  No its not and trust me Tammy’s children, Teri and Danny, are crucial to the story.  Danny is in Kevin’s class and Ms. Michaels hits all the right buttons with the teasing that Danny endures from classmates and the embarrassment of his mom and Kevin together.  In the end, when a single parent makes the decision to get back into the dating pool, they need to take into consideration the children.  Tammy does this and more with her children.  Kevin is also included with his feelings toward Tammy’s children.  Beautifully done. 

Ms. Michaels blends the usual topics of school politics, an evil soccer mom, town gossip and one woman’s brave journey to find herself again, and one hot romance perfectly.  The dialogue is crisp and clean.  The sex was hot and trust me, they are like bunnies but appropriate for the story.   The children’s reactions to their mother’s relationship with Kevin and how it effects them.

I highly recommend Teacher’s Pet for anyone looking for a feel good story about a woman with a second chance to love and a teacher that every woman wishes she could meet for a conference.  Okay, maybe not the hot teacher but a girl can dream, right?  I’m married…
