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.

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.

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.

Lots of good bits here. Loved how the single parents listened to the teacher & came up with their creative solution. Liked both Tucker & Garnet's unusual jobs.
