What I really liked about this book is the hero. He is a wonderful. Dedicated to his job, a protector, and very respectful and admiring of the heroine.

However, the academic elements of the book and how a college really works are not exactly accurate and therefore the plot that hinges on these ideas doesn

This is so far my favorite book in the Taylor Clan series by Julie Miller. Rachel is a wonderful woman and Josh Taylor is so kind and sweet. He cared about Rachel in a way that she had never been cared about. He broke all her walls on how things are suppose to be. He is one those guys that I'd love to have around. I was little jealous of Rachel how she got to have Josh.

Josh Taylor is undercover as Josh Tanner a twenty-two year old student at the university. He has a mission find out who is the

i really like this book.you have a single very pregnant professor dealing with a student who's mad at her and a crackpot who calls himself 'daddy'and threatens to take her baby from her.then you have josh one of her students whos always there when she needs him.some sparks are going on between them so she has to deal with the ethical problem of having feeling for one of her students.not knowing he's an undercover cop.

I love most every Harlequinn I have ever picked up. This story is about a single pregnant professor who falls for a student. Only he turns out to be a policeman. Good story.

Priyanka *The Book Ninja*
The Rookie by Julie Miller is a romantic suspense novel. The suspense is nice, though we do get the idea as to who exactly is the bad guy in the novel early.

A 4 stars for me (****)

I'm not a big fun of instant love. And the heroine character did annoy me to no end.
