Another amazing Jack 'Em Up novel. I enjoyed reading it as much as previous two books. The characters are all absolutely lovable and it is marvellous how smoothly the story flows. With all the twists and turns in the plot it still manages to be flawless in the way it's written. A must read for romance lovers, who are looking for light-hearted and touching story to brighten up their days.
Tori has recently started her new job as student counsellor. After hard work she is where she has always wanted to be. Her job is important to her and so is helping kids. Ryder is one of the students she is helping because he has issues. But what she doesn't anticipate is to feel wildly attracted to his father. It is becoming difficult for her to not be involved with a father of one of her students. But she can keep professional and personal lives separate.
Trace hasn't felt this way about any woman since Kristi left his son and never looked back. If a mother can do that to her son then can he trust any other woman? But Tori is different she is honest and open. He likes her and is willing to see where this thing goes.
Suddenly they are both in love with each other, trying to figure out how to make things work...
