#BookReview ~ Breaking the Rules by Melinda Dozier

Title: Breaking the Rules
Author: Melinda Dozier
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Rating: 5 stars

A forbidden love affair in the past has led Hope Robinson, a middle school principal, to Harbor Bay, Florida, where she commits herself to play by the rules. This can be difficult for a perpetual klutz, who - even strapped in a cast - has to uphold a competent attitude at all times.

Luckily, she has Dr. Colin Calaway on her side, a widower and father of a student, who is ready to give love another try. When Colin convinces Hope they should explore the connection between them, a steamy romance develops, though it could destroy them both. They must decide if their jobs - and their hearts - are worth the risk.

Sensuality Level: Sensual

My review:

I loved this story. I first read it as a beta reader and then again once it was published by Crimson Romance. The very first thing that struck me was how much I identified with Hope. Clumsy to the point of being a "frequent flyer" at the doctor's office, she is also really sweet and overall someone I felt was a good person. I connected with her right away and really liked her. 

Bring on Dr. McSteamy and we have a hot romance going on. Granted, a forbidden one since the good doctor is also the parent of a student at Hope's school. Their love has some starts and stops, and Hope tries to hold onto her head and keep her heart separate. Though there were a lot of great scenes, I have to say I loved their date and the beach party!

The real stealer of the show was little Jason, Colin's son. He likes Hope and it is obvious that kid needs a mom. I just wanted to reach out and hug him! Overall, another great read by Melinda! Looking forward to her next!

Happy reading friends! Have a fantastic weekend!!
