I have heard a lot of good things about Penelope Douglas and now I know why! Misconduct is a standalone contemporary romance with an HEA, but I wish it was a series because I am not ready to give these characters up! The New Orleans atmosphere and engaging storyline really drew me in. When I did have to put this book down for real life, as soon as I continued my reading session, I was instantly hooked again.
Say hello to Tyler Marek, owner of the world's third largest construction company, possible US Senate candidate, and alpha male extraordinaire. I loved Tyler and Easton's first meeting and also the second meeting, and well, let's be honest, every meeting after that. The chemistry between these two was off the charts! I loved Tyler's confidence but there is also an insecurity there that only Easton can see. Or maybe she brings it out in him.
I enjoyed the way we slowly learn what caused Easton to be the way she is. I started out thinking it's one thing but by the end of the story, you realize it's a mixture of different situations and she's possibly more screwed up than what was previously thought. Which makes it even more wonderful that Tyler seems to be the only person that makes her feel normal.
Awaiting you in this book are: surprises, heartbreaks, new friendships, haunting pasts, and a man and a woman who thought they knew what they wanted until they met each other. The story takes a turn once they learned how to make the right decisions when prioritizing aspects of their lives.
If finding amazing books to read is your New Year's resolution, then grab this one quickly. Highly recommended!
Former tennis player Easton Bradbury is trying to be the best teacher she can be, trying to reach her bored students, trying to forget her past. What brought her to this stage in her life isn’t important. She can’t let it be. But now one parent-teacher meeting may be her undoing…
Meeting Tyler Marek for the first time makes it easy for Easton to see why his son is having trouble in school. The man knows how to manage businesses and wealth, not a living, breathing teenage boy. Or a young teacher, for that matter, though he tries to. And yet…there is something about him that draws Easton in—a hint of vulnerability, a flash of attraction, a spark that might burn.
Wanting him is taboo. Needing him is undeniable. And his long-awaited touch will weaken Easton’s resolve—and reveal what should stay hidden…
