You can run from the past…but the past runs faster.
Behind Robert’s cheerfully eccentric exterior lies a young heart battered and bruised by his past. He’s taken a job teaching in a village primary school to make a fresh start, and love isn’t part of his plans. But he’s knocked for six—literally—by a chance encounter with the uncle of two of his pupils.
Sean works in pest control, rides a motorbike, and lives on a council estate. On the face of it, he shouldn’t have anything in common with Robert’s bow-tie, classic-car style and posh family background. Yet Robert is helpless to resist Sean’s roguish grin, and a rocky, excruciatingly embarrassing start doesn’t keep the sparks between them from flaring.
Despite Robert’s increasingly ludicrous attempts to keep his past where it belongs, his past hasn’t read the memo. And soon his secrets could be the very things that drive Sean away for good...
Warning: Contains the alarming misadventures of a pest control technician, a stepsister with a truly unfortunate name, and a young man who may have more bow ties than sense.

2.5 starsIt's enjoyable if boring. Merrow has some of my favorite writing, and I typically laugh out loud and learn new words. In this case it's ""sprog"".That said, there's nothing particularly special or stand-out about this book. I read it, but I wasn't really engaged with the characters. Unfortu...
That was a fun read. Ms. Merrow never fail to entertain me with her quirky witty cute clash with hawt Brits characters. Not too much angst and pretty down to earth story.Robert Emeny (Mr. Enemy to his young seven year old 2E pupils) moved to Shamwell to escape from the supposed scandal and failed re...
Loved this!It was super funny, great paced and sexy. Love!
Told from Robert’s POV, he just wasn’t interesting enough to make me want to spend that much time watching him live his life. Sean seemed to have more going on in his life, and his job in pest control could have made for some really fun stories, but that didn’t happen much. I was never convinced of ...
