I hate the guy.
I like the guy.
He irritates me.
He digs deep into my soul.
Greer Gibson recently moved to the suburbs of Chicago to make a new life for herself. She was lucky enough to land her dream teaching job right out of the gate and she’s looking forward to using her fun and fresh teaching style to shape the minds of her students. But from her very first day, she’s had to deal with, quite possibly, the grumpiest man she’s ever had the displeasure of meeting. Arlo Turner, aka Mr. Turns Me On, with his stupid sexy cardigans and his holier than thou attitude when it comes to teaching. He’s pompous and infuriating but she’s undeniably attracted to him. Will Greer come to find that there’s actually a really sweet guy hiding under the grouchy exterior or will he turn out to be the reason she might get fired from her beloved teaching job?
This was a pretty epic enemies-to-lovers story! Greer and Arlo straight-up hated each other after they first meet as she’s interviewing for her teaching position. Arlo has dedicated his life to upholding the high educational standards of the prestigious high school where he heads up the English department so when newbie Greer is hired and shows up with her unorthodox teaching methods, it really rubs him the wrong way. Greer, who seems to be the type of girl who makes friends with everyone, doesn’t understand why someone she barely knows can hate her so much. This animosity really results in some pretty hilarious moments as Greer and her new friends set out to teach Mr. Grumpy-pants a few lessons. Meghan Quinn’s talent for rom-coms really came through in these moments! I really loved seeing them prank Arlo, trying to get him to lighten up.
It really takes a while for Arlo to thaw in this one. They give into their mutual attraction before too long but he really does hold out on opening up for quite some time. It made it a little hard to fall in love with him as a reader but when he does finally open up, he had some very swoon-worthy moments. One thing’s for sure, even when he was being a total jerk, he was insanely sexy and him and Greer sure brought the heat! Once they do finally get together (pretty late in the book) and I’m thinking it’s smooth sailing once they finally do get together, Meghan Quinn’s slaps us with the angst we’ve come to expect from the end of her books. It was a good one too, I wasn’t expecting this turn of events!
Once I warmed up to Arlo, I really enjoyed him. I did love Greer and all the other secondary characters, though. Stella, Romeo, Gunner, Cora, and of course, Keiko! She was like a female version of Sheldon Cooper and she provided so many laugh-out-loud moments, with her brutal honesty. I see a lot of potential for additional stories in this “world” and I can’t wait for them!

“Did you have relations with my brother . . .”
I’d like to preface this by saying it was never my intention to ever get involved in a workplace romance, let alone get involved with the most surly, agitating, and pompous man I’ve ever met who just so happens to be my new friend’s brother.
My intentions were to show students how English and reading books could actually be fun and make a new life for myself in the suburbs of Chicago.
But so far, I’ve managed to be called into the principal’s office.
Coerced into participating in the teacher’s badminton league.
And instigated into passionate fights with Arlo Turner over education and decorum while losing my underwear at the same time.
Known as Mr. Turns Me On, he’s the reason I might get fired from my first ever teaching job.
“Before we get started, I’ve been told I need to ask you a question.” Stella sits cross-legged in front of me, a nervous look on her face, water in hand.
“Oh?” I ask, trying to act casual as I bring my glass of red wine to my lips. I have a scary inkling what this might be about.
She glances over at Coraline and winces. “Uh, I feel weird asking.”
Oh God . . . I was right.
Shifting, I say, “You know, we don’t have to—”
“Then why bring it up if you’re not going to propose your query?” Keiko asks impatiently while pushing her green-rimmed glasses up on her nose. “You know the frequency of these meetings is dependent upon staying within the comprehensive itinerary I composed during my lunchbreak.”
“Cool your bloomers, Keeks,” Coraline says while taking a large sip from her wine glass. “I want to know what’s making Stella so fidgety.”
The four founding members of the Ladies in Heat Book Club—aka my mismatched collection of friends—each bring diverse and unique character traits to our group.
Keiko “Keeks” Seymour—resident AP chemistry teacher at Forest Heights High School. Her social etiquette is lacking, her intelligence is off the charts, and she’d rather play with beakers than penises. She wasn’t thrilled about the book club name and made a noble attempt to explain why her suggestion, the Austen Empowerment Collaborative, was far more credible. Majority ruled, she lost.
Stella Garcia—Spanish teacher at Forest Heights and my co-coach. Currently single, makes the best tamales I’ve ever had, and is one stamp away from getting a free donut at Frankie Donuts. Can be shy at times, but when it comes to her family and friends, she doesn’t take shit from anyone. Loyal to the core, one of the reasons I adore her.
Coraline “Cora” Turner—recent divorcée and living with her brother, Arlo. Jobless at the moment and couldn’t care less about it since both she and Arlo have enough inheritance to last them a lifetime. Often annoyed by her older brother or annoying him, doesn’t partake in Twitter—says it’s a filthy pool of opinions, and is the first to offer up a bottle of wine.
Then there’s me . . .
Greer Gibson—twenty-four-year-old fresh to the teaching scene as Forest Heights’s new English teacher and women’s volleyball coach. I love running, have a penchant for a man in a cardigan, and can get a little noisy in the classroom while teaching. I currently share a classroom wall with Arlo Turner, Forest Heights most prestigious English teacher, and might have lost my underwear—
“Out with it, Stella,” Cora says, snapping at her.
“Please, so we can proceed,” Keeks says, straightening her notepad on her lap.
Stella looks me in the eyes and says, “Brock wants to know if there’s anything going on between you and Turner. Apparently, Turner won’t say a thing, but Brock thinks there’s some strong sexual tension building.”
Cora whips her head to me, her eyes wide. “Are you getting it on with my brother?”
Finger pointed in the air, Keeks leans in and says, “The proper term amongst company would be coitus.”
Rolling her eyes, Cora asks, “Did you have coitus with my brother?”
“You could also say intercourse if that amuses your jargon more,” Keeks adds. “Or copulating would be sufficient. But if you are inclined toward romantic terminology, since we are in the presence of the book club, you could say lovemaking or performing intimate acts. Although, given the circumstances of when coitus took place—in the work environment—I would deduce that your actions were performed carnally rather than with the interest of developing a devoted accord.”
“Good God, Keeks,” Cora says, irritated. “Who cares what it’s called? We just want to know if it happened.” Cora looks me in the eyes. “Did it?”
Did it . . .
I’d like to preface this by saying it was never my intention to ever get involved in a workplace romance when I was hired at Forest Heights, let alone get involved with the most surly, agitating, and pompous man I’ve ever met.
My intentions were to show students how English and reading books could actually be fun, bring the volleyball team to a state championship, and make a new life for myself in the suburbs of Chicago.
But so far, I’ve managed to be called into the principal’s office.
Infiltrate the teachers’ athletic league.
And had passionate fights with Arlo Turner over education, decorum, and student-teacher friendships.
Not to mention I’ve lost my panties to him in my dreams more than I care to admit.
Why did this all happen?
The man dresses in a cardigan, that’s how.
Arlo Turner. The bane of my existence, annoyance to my sanity, and the only man who’s ever made me want to spread my legs in a classroom.
He’s torn down my metaphorical walls, strapped on a cottony cardigan—pushed up the sleeves—and has driven me to the brink of insanity, so now whenever I hear the mention of his name, my legs automatically spread, and my heartrate picks up.
Known as Mr. Turns Me On, he’s the reason my star athlete is struggling to keep her grades up.
He’s the reason I tend to avoid the teacher breakroom.
And he’s the reason I might get fired from my first ever teaching job.
