Misconduct by Penelope Douglas

Release date – December 1, 2015

Book Details

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Fall Away series who never fails to deliver a “powerfully written contemporary love story…”*

Former tennis player Easton Bradbury is trying to be the best teacher she can be, trying to reach her bored students and trying to forget her past. What brought her to this stage in her life isn’t important. She can’t let it be. But now one parent-teacher meeting may be her undoing…

Meeting Tyler Marek for the first time makes it easy for Easton to see why his son is having trouble in school. The man knows how to manage businesses and wealth, not a teenage boy. Or a young teacher, for that matter, though he tries to. And yet…there is something about him that draws Easton in—a hint of vulnerability, a flash of attraction, a spark that might burn.

Wanting him is taboo. Needing him is undeniable. And his long-awaited touch will weaken Easton’s resolve—and reveal what should stay hidden…

Easton. All her life it’s been all about her for her parents. She also had a brother and sister, but she was the shining star, the one their family centered around. Tyler. Business mogul and single-absentee father trying to find his connection with his son. I wanted to like this novel, but it fell short for me. The beginning had me intrigued, the middle I lost touch with where the focus was to be aimed, and the end filled in so many pieces at once and then just ended. What felt like a steep enough climax wasn’t enough and more and more kept happening. Actions were just accepted and everyone moved on, no reflecting or discussion, just done-no longer an issue. Some of the interactions felt awkward and forced, which left me with an uncomfortable feeling. I love Penelope’s writing, that was not the issue for me with Misconduct. It was the plot layout and direction that drew me away from the focus of the novel. Give this a try and you might find your next book crush! Rating: 2.5 stars
