It’s not that I’m hiding out in this hard luck little town.
But I’m twenty-six years old, I’ve had one boyfriend, and he ditched me for my sister.
So I might be a little cynical.
Then again, perhaps a high school math teacher shouldn’t expect romance.
I’d be better off sticking to the good things in life, such as my job at Emblem High, my amazing circle of friends, and my vintage record collection.
I shouldn’t waste time beating myself up over past choices or crying over the people who betrayed me.
And I definitely shouldn’t obsess over the washboard abs belonging to the guy who just moved in down the hall.
There’s no denying Landon Gentry is hot.
He is also crude, sarcastic, messy and downright exasperating.
And he used to be my student.
Yeah, my new roommate might be the last guy I should be thinking about.
If only he didn’t turn out to be so much more than I ever imagined…
The football scholarship was my ticket out of town and I never planned to come back.
However, blowing out my knee in the last game of the season spelled the end of my college days.
Still, I wouldn’t have returned if not for my little brother.
He’s lost his way since I left.
And I’m the only one who cares enough to help him find it again.
Between working two jobs and trying to steer my brother back in line I’ve got enough to focus on.
I don’t need to get distracted by a quirky schoolteacher with a great body.
But Autumn’s more than just some sexy girl who rents a house with me.
She’s gorgeous and brilliant and clueless about the fact that she’s been my fantasy for years.
Seeing her right in front of me every day is just too tempting to pass up.
Even if giving in might mean disaster for us both…
Cora Brent was born in a cold climate and escaped as soon as it was legally possible. Now, she lives in the desert with her husband, two kids and a prickly pear cactus she has affectionately named ‘Spot’. Cora’s closet is filled with boxes of unfinished stories that date back her 1980’s childhood and all her life she has dreamed of being an author. Amazingly, she is now a New York Times and USA Today bestselling writer of contemporary romance and begs not to be awakened from this dream.
