The Role of a Lifetime

Jennifer Shirk
Contemporary Romance

"He didn't exactly look like the loving Father Knows Best type, considering a fire-breathing skull tattoo wasn't designed to instill tenderness."

Sandra's only focuses these days are on her pre-school and her daughter.  Her ex-husband's only focus is on his acting career - just as it's always been.  So when heart-throb actor Ben invades her little school to research a movie role, Sandra is less than excited.  He's cute and sometimes sweet, but she won't give her heart to a man who will break it again - especially not an actor.  Ben needs something more from his life and suspects that a new kind of acting role is the answer.  Spending time with a bunch of children is not his idea of a good time, but he'll do what he has to.  Being around the alluring Sandra is an added bonus.  But he can't get involved with the pre-school teacher and then leave - it's not good for his new image.  Can he keep his hands and his heart away from her?

My Opinion: Another fun a lighthearted romance from Jennifer Shirk.  This was a sweet and enjoyable book with wonderful characters.  Quirky situations and great romance sucked me into the story while keeping a good pace.  Sandra is a good blend of uptight and strong mixed with a longing for love.  Ben is sweet and lovable and overly confident in an endearing way.  They mesh and interact well with each other.  I was rooting for them the whole time.  It's nice to see a contemporary novel that is a sweet romance without trying to delve into the deeper psyche of the modern mind.  Sit back and enjoy this great romance!

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.
