Seduce the teacher.
Meet the cousin.
Make a deal.
Steal the painting.
Andrea Anderson has no clue of the thoughts churning around in the dark and dangerous ex-con’s head as he enters her classroom. In fact, she’s momentarily lost for words. Not in her entire teaching career has she had a student who looked quite like Stu Cross.
A widow at just twenty-eight, love is something Andie hasn’t considered a part of her life for a very long time. However, when lingering touches turn to whispered words and hot, searching stares, she begins to wonder if maybe she should take a leap of faith.
But Stu is in her class for a reason, and it has nothing to do with love. He’s there to burrow his way into her life and repay a debt, otherwise his family will suffer. Andie is the first person to show him true kindness since he left prison, and though he doesn’t want to mislead her, he doesn’t have another choice.
Before long, Stu can’t tell whether or not he’s acting anymore, and his feelings for Andie could throw all of his carefully crafted plans into complete and utter disarray.
**Can be read as a stand alone.
Review by Lou
Another great book in the Hearts series by L.H. Cosway. I love this series and thoroughly enjoyed this book too. So we have met Stu Cross in the previous books, and in this book we meet him now he has been released from prison and as part of his parole terms, joins Andrea’s adult education classes.
One thing was for sure: Stu Cross wasn’t as predictable as I thought, and even though I was the teacher in this situation, somehow it felt like I’d just been schooled.
I loved these two characters throughout the book. There is a spark between these two characters from the very start, and Andrea cannot resist the sexy, naughty, bad boy Stu. But she see’s something more in him, she sees through him and even though she know she shouldn’t, she cannot resist him. Andrea also has a past which means she struggles to get her head around moving things forward with Stu. Stu on the other hand is in Andrea’s classes for a reason, but that reason starts to make things difficult when he starts to fall for Andrea.
“I could take or leave the slacks,” he breathed, all gravelly. “But those lips and your big brown eyes, now those are what get me all jacked up.”
This book is thoroughly entertaining, sexy with a dash of drama and heart in the mouth moments. There are also some funny bits and some really tender, special moments too. There are plenty of twists and surprises which keeps the story flowing really well. And that epilogue! Superb – although I did see it coming to some extent!
“Stu Cross made me feel alive. So much so that it took him coming into my life to make me realise I hadn’t been living.”
It’s great to see some of the other characters from the Cross family too who we have met in some of the previous books! And we also meet Andrea’s cousin Alfie who plays a pivotal role in the book, who is a wonderful character.
Overall another fantastic book to add to this series!
**** 4 solid stars! ****
Review by Donna
I adore this series and each book is perfect in it’s own way.
This is again another great book to add to the wonderful collection of Hearts, written by the talented LH Cosway.
The main character had a connection and a vibe from the start that was obvious and needed to be explored, although it shouldn’t be Andrea was tempted by the enticing Stu, but who wouldn’t be.
Entertaining, drama, angst and throw in a little sexy and heat you kept turning those pages to see where this story goes.
Definitely worthy of the Hearts title.
