Jemma Monroe gets laid off from her teaching job in Denver, CO and decides to take a temporary long term sub job in the little town of Haven Lake, CO. Never having lived in a small town, Jemma looks at the change as an adventure and moves her and her bunny, Senor Fluffypants, to the new town where she quickly meets Wyatt Langford.
Wyatt is a single dad to Bailey Rae who is in 3rd grade. Since Jemma and Wyatt are neighbors, they seem to keep running in to each other. It also doesn’t help that Jemma turns out to be Bailey’s new teacher. For the first time since his divorce Wyatt finds himself attracted to someone….too bad it is his daughter’s teacher.
The more time Jemma and Wyatt spend together, the more they cannot deny the attraction sizzling between the two of them. As Jemma’s temporary job is winding down, she needs to decide what it is she truly wants for her future and if that future includes Wyatt and Bailey. At the same time Wyatt has to figure out if Jemma is worth taking a chance on and if he can finally let his past demons rest.
Overall this was a sweet, romantic story that had such fun characters. Jemma and Wyatt are just two sweet people who deserved to find their happy ending.
