The first time I saw Will Munroe I had him pegged as a typical LA douchebag—a little too handsome, a little too rich, a little too into his probiotic kale smoothies. The next time I ran into him—at his daughter’s parent/teacher conference (me: teacher, he: parent)—I noticed his steel grey eyes, his hard chest under a crisp white button down, and his suggestively bare ring finger. I was hooked.

If life really imitated art, he’d have swept me off my feet and taken me right there on the principal's desk. Instead, we are stuck in our assigned roles. He’s the workaholic single dad of a precocious girl child, and I’m her fiery substitute teacher. Never the two shall meet. Enter one zany, yurt-dwelling ex-wife, a stock market that never sleeps, and some over-the-top, A-list fundraisers, and I've got plenty of drama ahead. Better to keep my hands to myself.

But when Will asks me out for a pancake breakfast, how can I resist? My heart (and my stomach) say yes, but am I willing to risk my job for a short stack and a romp in the hay? A slow, sensual, mind-blowing romp in the hay…

But where there’s a Will…

MY REVIEW

EXTRA CREDIT was a blissful combination of quirky, humor, quirky humor, and just the right amount of smut. As the second book I've read from Poppy Dunne, I've gotta say it's my favorite so far!! Basically, Chelle's a temp teacher at a New Wave, hippy type of prep school for the rich and falls hard for a precocious 10-year old in her class. She didn't expect to fall equally as hard for her student's father.

It was impossible not to love Chelle. This girl was a freaking riot. Between her inner rambling, her word vomit, her awkwardness, her clown parents, her passion for life, and her humongous heart, she was an easy character to get on board with. Will was a little hard to connect with at first, but that was only because I was initially unsure of where his head and heart were truly at when it came to his ex. Once that was explained, he too was quite simply adorable. I especially loved who he was as not only a man, but as a father. And don't even get me started on his POV. He could be hilarious too!

This was Romantic Comedy at its best so be prepared to laugh, chortle, snicker, guffaw, giggle and snort. I've given you fair warning!!
