Another interesting part of the book is the development of the villain, who at first is both familiar and incredibly unlikable.
This is not a generic bodice-ripper, thank goodness. It’s a thoughtful love story told from several different points of view: his, hers, and the narrator’s. While the subtitle is “A multicultural romance,” the emphasis is on the people rather than their respective cultures, and there’s little in the way of backlash. The authors present an accurate view of life in a high school counselling office, complete with overfull schedules, quirky staff, and problems with administrators.
I loved the characters and the road they lead me own. Nova is a strong, yet vulnerable and unsure heroin, that found myself loving and relating to. She's sublime and real.
At first glance, this romance seems expected, but you'd be wrong in assuming that the way I was. There is much more to this brilliant story and I will absolutely not tell you. All I can say is that this is a must read for any romance lover. The writing is intriguing and the characters are well developed and I honestly can't think of something I didn't like about this book. Just go out and buy it and you'll see what I mean.
Nova Velez was an over achiever with her two jobs, karate class, her internship starting soon, and volunteering at the hospital. She wanted very much to be a fully certified counselor. She enjoyed working with people and helping them solve their problems or just helping them. She really wanted to help children overcome neglect and abuse as well as dealing with bullying. Nora knew what it was like to feel like no one cared and wanted all other children to never feel like that. Nora was excited and scared about her first day as an intern at a school. She had problems going to sleep and then slept late and had to rush to try to get to school on time. Of course, she was late; but just a little. Then it seemed, things just got worse.
Bryce Marsh was a school counselor. He was overworked and stressed out about his job. It seemed that he did more work for the other teachers and the principal than he did his own work. He had a stack of papers to fill out for students as well as the papers he needed for a meeting with the Principal. As his stress level increased, he decided to get a cup of tea. On his way to get his cup of tea, he ran into the Principal and spilled water on her. Just what he needed! On top of that mistake, he learned he was getting an intern who he did not want. He had found Interns were more work than help. Thus, when Bryce finally met Nova, he wasn’t in the mood to be patient and helpful.
Both Nova and Bryce were dealing with their own self=images as they tried to work their way to working together. Each one was fine when counseling students; but when it came to working together, things weren’t as easy.
The book is quite humorous, especially to a former teacher. If I didn’t know any better, I would think one of the authors had to be a teacher. They caught the characters up in all the minute problems teachers face daily. It is an excellent book.
