✾ Synopsis ✾


The newest novel from New York Times bestselling author Emma Chase.

Head of the class...

Garrett Daniels has this whole life thing figured out.

The cocky, charismatic former high school star quarterback is an idolized football coach and "cool" teacher in the hometown where he's not just a golden boy — he's platinum. He has good friends, a great house on the lake, and the best damn sidekick a man could ask for: Snoopy, the albino beagle.

Then... Callie Carpenter comes home.

And knocks him right on his tight end zone.

Back to school...

Callie has a pretty sweet life herself... on the other side of the country. But circumstances — that she'd prefer to never speak of again — have brought her back home, helping out her parents and substitute teaching at her old high school.

Now she's facing bickering, raging hormones, constant gossip, awkward weirdness, and drama galore... and that's just the teachers.

Just like old times...

When Garrett offers to show his former high school sweetheart the secrets of his winning teacher ways, Callie jumps at the chance - and then has to stop herself from jumping him.

Good friends are all they can ever be.

Or... these teachers just might end up getting schooled — by love.

✿ Excerpt ✿


High school parking lots are one of the most dangerous places on earth. I don't have statistics to back that up... but I know it's true.

I pull into the school parking lot Monday morning in my Dad's giant, newly repaired mint-green Buick, with Back in Black by AC/DC blasting from the speakers. I feel tough, powerful — like I'm driving a tank.

I'm a badass teacher — I'll run you down even if you're a student — I've got twenty-nine more in class just like you.

The outfit helps too — leather boots, blue jeans, a starched white blouse and a black leather jacket. It's my armor. The morning air is cool and crisp today, but I barely feel it. I'm locked and loaded and ready to roll.

As I march towards the main entrance, I spot Garrett and Dean and Alison Bellinger outside the doors. They pause when they see me, waiting.

"Damn," Dean chuckles. "Callie's got her shit-kickers on. Did you dig them out of a mosh pit from 1993?"

Garrett crosses his arms. "Somebody's channeling Michelle Pfiefer in Dangerous Minds."

He looks fantastic. His hair is tousled from the breeze and kisses his brow, and he's wearing a dark blue sweater that's snug around his biceps and soft, worn, light blue jeans. I remember his arms around me yesterday on my parent's porch. The wonder and exhilaration of the moment.

Of him.

The intensity in his eyes, the desire and possessiveness in the grasp of his hands. The scorching feel of his mouth, his wet talented tongue that made my stomach swirl and my head spin.

So much for not complicating things.

But I'm not going to play head games with myself or Garrett — we're too old for that shit.

I have feelings for him — I always have — our break-up had nothing to do with either of us not wanting each other desperately. But these aren't just leftover echoes of a sweet, first love — this is something new. A throbbing, breathless attraction to the amazing man he's become. I want to be near him. I want to know him, inside and out, all over again.

And he feels the same way. Garrett wants this version of me as much as he always did — maybe even more. I heard it in his whispered words and felt it in his kiss.

I don't know if we have a future, if it can go anywhere. We have separate lives on opposite ends of the country. But I'm not going to worry about that — for now, I'm going to take each day as it comes and enjoy every moment we can.

Except for now. Now is not the time for enjoying or worrying or relationship building... now is the time for focusing. Now is the time to be ice and steel — don't smile, don't waver.

"Little fucknutters don't know who the hell they're dealing with," I growl.

Allison pumps her fist. "That's the spirit."

Garrett opens the door for me. "Go get 'em, Gangster's Paradise."

The Problem With Him
Opposites Attract #3
by
Rachel Higginson

Release Date: June 26th 2018

Genre: Standalone Romance





✾ Synopsis ✾


I'm over men. I'm done with them.

Or at least the ones that work in my kitchen. Fine, one man in particular. Wyatt Shaw is cocky and condescending and so far out of his element that he doesn't know which way is up. Or how to run his brand new kitchen all by himself.

That's where I come in. Sous chef extraordinaire. Second in command. Bane of his existence. I am the reason Wyatt's doing so well as the new executive chef of one of our city's most prestigious restaurants. He has me to thank for his glowing accolades and five-star write-ups. Only if you were to ask him, he'd say I'm his biggest problem.

Despite his discouragement and bullish behavior, I've set two goals for myself.

The first? I'm going to fight my way to the top of this male-dominated industry and claim my own award-winning kitchen.

The second? I'm going to do whatever it takes to ignore Wyatt and his rare smiles and the thickening tension that's started to simmer between us.

Wyatt Shaw might be Durham's new shining star. He might be up for a James Beard Award. He might be my new boss and key to my future success, but he's also in my way.

So he can keep his smoldering looks and secret kisses. And he can be the one that figures out how to make it through service without getting distracted by me.

I'm not the problem. The problem is him.

✿ My Review ✿




When Wyatt Shaw is chosen to be the new Executive Chef of Lilou and she's appointed to be his sous chef, Kaya Swift is furious. She loves her job but she also knows she's talented and skilled. So when she finds out there's an opening position for an Executive Chef at another restaurant, Kaya will work hard to get it, all without Wyatt knowing. But what will happen when things start to get heated between Kaya and Wyatt? Will she still fight and work hard for her future and her career? Or will she give up her dreams?

The Problem With Him is the third book in the Opposites Attract series but it can be read as a standalone. Kaya and Wyatt's story is funny, sweet, and sexy. The banter between them made me laugh a lot and the slow burn of their relationship kept me on my toes and wanting more.

I loved Kaya. She's a fierce and sassy woman that knows what she wants and will work and fight hard for it. I loved that she didn't surrender to Wyatt's charm and good looks and always stood up for herself.
Wyatt is a confident and arrogant man, but that's what he shows to everyone. He's very vulnerable and all the pressure is affecting him. He fell for Kaya and knew that one day she would be his.

If you want a funny, sweet and sexy read, look no more! The Problem With Him is the book for you! Rachel Higginson gives us a fantastic and captivating story with strong characters. Kaya and Wyatt's story will hook you from the first page!

✾ Synopsis ✾


A startling new vision of paranormal romance: When a human ventures into the world of vampires — a decadent milieu of blood-bonds and betrayal — she discovers that not all is what it seems.

In a civilization laid waste by poverty and desperation, Reyna accepts a high-paying position with the wealthy and hungry vampire elite. Her new job is as the live-in blood escort for the intimidating, demanding, and devilishly handsome Beckham Anderson. He's everything she expected from a vampire, except for one thing — he won't feed off her.

Reyna soon discovers that behind Beckham's brooding, wicked façade lies a unique and complex man. And that, in a dark and divided world, she is more valuable than she ever would have believed.

For with each passing night, Reyna can't shake the sensation that it's Beckham who's afraid of her.

✿ Excerpt ✿


I sit down in the desk chair and lean back, balancing on the hind legs like my mother always told me not to. I fold my hands behind my head, put my feet on the desk, and sigh with contentment. Because life is sweet.

It's going to be a great year.

They're not all great — some years suck donkey balls — my best players graduate and it's a rebuilding year, which means a lot of 'L's' on the board, or sometimes you just get a crappy crop of students. But this year's going to be awesome — I can feel it.

And then, something catches my eye outside the window in the parking lot.

Someone.

And my balance goes to shit.

I swing my arms like a baby bird, hang in the air for half a second... and then topple back in a heap. Not my smoothest move.

But right now, it doesn't matter.

I pull myself up to my feet, step over the chair towards the window, all the while peering at the blond in the navy blue pencil skirt walking across the parking lot.

And the ass that, even from this distance — I would know anywhere.

Callaway Carpenter. Holy shit.

She looks amazing, even more beautiful than the last time I saw her... than the first time I saw her. You never forget your first. Isn't that what they say? Callie was my first and for a long time, I thought she'd be my only.

The first time I laid my eyes on her, it felt like getting sacked by a three-hundred pound defensive lineman with an axe to grind. She looked like an angel. Golden hair framing petite, delicate features — a heart-shaped face, a dainty jaw, a cute nose and these big, round, blinking green eyes I wanted to drown in.

Wait... back up... that's not actually true. That's a lie.

I was fifteen when I met Callie, and fifteen year old boys are notorious perverts, so the first thing I noticed about her wasn't her face. It was her tits — they were full and round and absolutely perfect.

The second thing I noticed was her mouth — shiny and pink with a bee-stung bottom lip. In a blink, a hundred fantasies had gone through my head of what she could do with that mouth... what I could show her how to do.

Then I saw her angel face. That's how it happened.

And just like that — I was gone.

We were "the" couple in high school — Brenda and Eddie from that Billy Joel song. The star quarterback and the theater queen.

She was the love of my life, before I had any fucking idea what love was... and then, still, even after I did.

We broke up when she went away to college and I stayed here in Jersey — couldn't survive the distance. It was a quiet ending, when I went out to visit her in California, no drama or hysterics. Just some hard truths, tears, one last night together in her dorm room bed, and a morning of goodbye.

She never really came home again after that. At least, not long enough for us to run into each other. I haven't seen her in years — in a lifetime.

But she's here now.

At my school.

And you can bet Callie's sweet ass I'm going to find out why.
