I also love the themes of forgiveness and responsibility that run through this story, without being preachy. I was so sorry when the book was over. I'm hoping there might be a sequel. And there was plenty of sexual tension, but no explicit or ever near-explicit scenes. The perfect clean, sweet romance. If you're looking for a great book that will hook you from page one, this is it.
The bet alluded to in the book's description is the catalyst for a life altering event for Susan and Kurt--and the story also delves into the farther reaching effects (extended family and friends) of a rash--and alcohol influenced decision.
The book deals with several themes that I can't go into without issuing spoilers. Some may seem outdated, but related themes never go out of style--like standing up and taking responsibility. The story includes some great bits of wisdom about love, faith, and about forgiveness.
Cantrell's writing is good. It's well-edited. and it is an HEA.
Due to this, I felt that the story was a little slow in places and I had to force myself to continue reading. There were many times I wanted to give up on this story, but my curiosity won out and I soldiered on.
As a whole, I did enjoy it.
It was awesome to see how quickly a life can change after one night and how many people you are connected to and what ripple effects your actions have on others. Family, loyalty, and friendships are all put to the test in this high school set story. With the title being what it is you would first think that it is about two high schoolers, but the twist is in fact the teachers in this small conservative school that become our story tellers. The cheerleader is the lovely teacher, Miss Susan English and the captain is Kurt Deveraux, the coach for the football team. Both are living wonderful lives with good friends and good families, but have yet to find real love.
As with most of us when you can't stand someone who thinks they are always right you hate to pass up a chance to make it known they are in fact not a know it all. So when another teacher doesn't have any luck with Kurt, Susan takes a bet to prove she can get a date with the man of mystery. While Kurt has no idea this is happening he already has feeling towards his fellow teacher and once Susan shows interest it clearly must mean it is fate.He takes a chance and invited her to a friend's party and plans for a slow romance with Susan.
The two have a wonderful date, but everything heads south when it is discovered by Kurt that it was just a bet that pushed Susan to him. Feeling hurt he turns his back on everyone who was involved.
When a new development comes to light, if forces the two love birds back together, but with huge side effects. No one is left untouched and everyone has to learn to forgive, have trust, and hope for a better tomorrow by the end of this story. Everyone does a lot of grown in this book, but it comes after some large set backs. A nice happily ever after once the dust settles.
