Review/Giveaway: Breaking the Rules by Melinda Dozier

Breaking the Rules
By: Melinda Dozier
Crimson Romance
Releasing July 8th, 2013


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.

My Review:

A sweet romance with characters I liked, not a bad way to start off a new to me author. The story developed nicely and I was smiling in the end.

Hope is a middle school principal and she’s kind of a klutz, which I totally relate to. I think it made her character very relatable. I don’t think she set out to fall for a student’s father but watching her do so was enjoyable.

Dr. Colin Calaway is a great character, he’s a great dad to his son, and he’s pretty darn perfect. I understood Hope’s reluctance to date a student’s parent but was happy that she went for it.

This is a quick, satisfying read. I really enjoyed this sweet romance and I would recommend this to lovers of sweet romance.

  1. I am not much of a rule breaker, in fact I'm pretty much a goody-two-shoes.

  2. Umm well sometimes when I was a teen, I know I broke a few rules of my parent, that's it.
