Book Review - LIFE ON THE PORCELAIN EDGE by C.E. Hilbert
Romantic comedy--sorta--although there are a bunch of painfully tearful scenarios here and there throughout this fast-paced novel! Very much enjoyable in either case.
Tessa Tarrington was a PK (preacher's kid), and all the rules applied: excel in every school subject; lead the pack to church; and, above all, never tarnish the family name. The problems began at the ripe old age of six when Ryland Jessup gave her a birthday present that followed her forever: days-of-the-week panties. Worse, thanks to his stutter, a new nickname: Pee-Pee Tee-Tee.
And now she had to go back to her hometown, her adult reputation equally shattered. A ghost writer for the rich and famous, she was only supposed to write what the R&F told her to, and she did that. However, they entrusted her sympathetic shoulders with far more than what was ever printed. When those deep secrets began appearing in scandal sheets, her career dove suddenly into the toilet. Fired, she fled to her father's side--after all, he needed her help after his heart attack. Plus, the local school offered her a job as a substitute teacher for an extended period.
If she'd known the first familiar face she'd see would be that of Ryland Jessup in her alma mater's hallway, she might never have accepted the job.
On Ryland's side, it was like a dream come true to see Tessa. She had been his dream girl ever since he first met her--and of course, boys being boys, he didn't know any way to treat the girl except to tease her. Tessa can only hope he's grown up--and Ryland can only hope that she'll finally return his affections.
Oh, please please please buy this book! I swear, you will love it as much as I have. Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher. They did not request a positive review, and the opinions and evaluations are my own.
