About the Book
Annaliese Harper knows that one tiny mistake can jeopardize a career before it’s even begun. Letting your boss find the extensive collection of porn on your personal laptop is one way. Sleeping with him is another. Liese manages to do both.
As the new librarian at a prestigious small-town private high school, Liese is drawn to her sexy, charismatic principal, Ryder Whitehall—an attraction she refuses to acknowledge given their relationship and her recent liberation from a delusional ex-boyfriend.
Liese is certain Ryder’s flirtation is the product of her sex-deprived imagination—until he discovers her digital porn stash during working hours and demands a private meeting. Behind closed doors, their attraction explodes into a dangerous, passionate affair that not only threatens their jobs and reputations, but most of all, their hearts
“I tried so hard,” he said, his fingers digging into her side as he pulled her closer. “I really did.” It almost sounded like an apology.
Well I just added another novel to my favorite list. Frankly I did it easily. The Librarian Principle had that refreshing factor that I crave so much in novels especially when so many of them are look-a-likes these days. It was funny‚ playful‚ sexily light story with forbidden attraction and later relationship between the main characters.
Helena surely knows how to grab the readers attention and pulled the even more and keep them thoroughly interesting‚ glued‚ engaged and entertained. Her writing is exquisite‚ filled with humor and addictive wit that makes you want more.
His fingertips moved along her jaw, sweeping her hair over her shoulder, his eyes dark. “I’d like to kiss you, if that would be permissible.”
“I suppose I could allow it.” Liese smiled.
I love the pace of the novel. I love how the things weren’t rushed‚ how Helena allowed us to enjoy her novel and get to know her characters.
I also love how she gives an amazing depth to her characters and how she is able to develop them completely and make them approachable and easy to connect with.
To be sincere I didn’t love Ryder from the start because of his coldness and some other things that just didn’t wowed me. But as the story progressed he slowly started to show us his real self and I started to like him.
Liese is a different story. She is a sweet‚ vulnerable young woman with assumptions that she has a hard time seeing past them. I got her. I really did and I just connected with her from the beginning.
“I can’t stand being away from you. It drives me fucking crazy.”
A very firm and steady 4.5* novel that I enjoyed very much. Great job Helena.
