But a meeting with their boys' teacher had Tucker MacKinnon and Garnet Cattrell realizing what they really needed was each other.

The h/H are both single parents trying to do their best when they are told by the teacher that there are some problems, the hero's son seems uncomfortable amongst women maybe it is because his mom is absent and the heroine's son prefers to spend time indoors than do anything physical. The hero who has noticed the heroine from the starts suggests a swap, as an experiment and it kind of works. The heroine too has noticed the hero not that she shows him she has. The heroine had self
Very good book. I really liked both Tucker and Garnet. Both were single parents who were doing their best to raise their boys. Garnet's son was somewhat introverted and into reading, computers and taking care of his mom. Tucker's son was tall for his age, athletic, and awkward around girls. So Tucker and Garnet decided they would swap off parenting duties a couple times a week, exposing each boy to things they weren't getting at home. What they didn't count on was the attraction they felt for ea ...more

I do not normally seek out books with kids in them but after seeing a preview for this book on FB, I couldn't resist. The cover and title sold me.

There is also a secondary character in the book, Sally who in my opinion serves no purpose to enhance the story in any way. Other than that ...more
I'm not really sure why I keep reading these silly little romance novels, and yet, I do. This one was okay. I'm not a huge fan of romance with kids, so this poor book didn't really have much of a chance with me. That said, it wasn't awful. The characters were at least realistic and only a little cliche - not as bad as they could have been.
I read this for review at All About Romance and gave it a B. My review is here:

This was a wonderful book I loved all the characters. Maybe this is the start of a new series.
Good characters, good use of situation to move story along.
A little bit on the 3 1/2 stars side but nice read.
