Wooho, so I finally got to read this book. The heroine goes undercover as a high school student with the help of her friend and discovers a new calling than her old job and discovers a new part of herself, one that she had lost in her ambitious job. I liked seeing "Sarah" as Sarina connect with teenagers and help them in their life. She also met a girl like herself with image and body issues plus the hero's sister Kate who has her own problems. The hero Jack is a English teacher

For one of those "Romance" novels, this was surprisingly good.

I liked this novel but I wasn't crazy about it. Had an earthy and realistic tone in some areas (eg. the high school hierarchy and the pain of being a teenager at the bottom of this hierarchy), but you had to suspend disbelief about other aspects of the novel (eg. the heroine being able to pass for a teenager for so long and her best friend's ability to pull strings to get her into the high school in the first place).

I grew up reading my mothers romance books so I'm very familar with the genre. I actually like well written romances. This one is very well written, with believable charactors. I've read it several times and it is a page turner.

One of the better written romance stories that I pilfered from my mum's collection. Is worth holding onto, and largely lacks the flat stereotypes of this genre. Think 'Never Been Kissed' meets the bookish version of Glee.

This is one of my all time favourite Harlequin's and have read it numerous times. Skimmed through it this weekend and remembered my love all over again. Interesting premise...

Why would a former bank vice president and advertising agency executive choose to write romance novels? "Selling women a sense of their own self-worth beats hyping consumer products any day," Jan Freed says of her newest—and third—career. Her heroines are "strong, gutsy women willing to safeguard traditional values against all odds. Sort of John-Wayne-in-pantyhose types," she explains.
