Then came medical school, deadlines, and the pressure of being the best. I became overwhelmed, seeking out alternate ways to stay on top, like extracurricular activities will my mentor.
After a while my life was spinning out of control. I fell in love and began having an affair with my married professor, and to top it off we’ve been caught by his vengeful spouse. She’ll stop at nothing to expose
her husband for the lying, cheating man he’s become, putting me directly in the crossfires of their very public separation. The school board is talking about revoking my credits.
I think he loves me. He claims we can have a future if I’m patient, but now there is something pressing me to make drastic decisions.
I’m pregnant and he thinks it’s best if I abort the child before anyone finds out. My only choice is to leave town, to return to the family who I know will protect me.
I don’t know what’s going to happen when my family discovers the truth, but at this point nothing can hurt me more than losing everything I’ve worked my whole life for.

This was my first Jennifer Foor book and I don’t think it will be my last.
Although Cammie is part of the Mitchell/Healey series, but it can be read as a standalone.
At the beginning we see Cammie being perused by her professor, who’s married with grown up kids, both close to Cammie’s age. He grooms and manipulates her into thinking he was in love with her and they had a future together, making all these promises that people who have affairs do.
I felt a little uncomfortable with some of the stuff he was asking her to do, like standing in front of an open window naked for all to see. That alone should have had alarm bells screaming loudly in her head! I guess the thrill if getting caught made their Affair even hotter. I wanted to reach inside my kindle and shake some sense into her and squash him like the cockroach he is!!
A huge curve ball was thrown, thus showing the true colours of Professor James Willis.
Cammie then returns home to try to figure out what she was going to do, and hoping her family would help. She didn’t get the welcome or help she was hoping for. personally, I thought her family were a little harsh on her. They seem to have put a hell of a lot of pressure on her shoulders to do well in school.
In swoops Wes, her younger brother Josh’s best friend. He offers her a shoulder to cry on. He’s love her since he was 14 years old, he seems the perfect man for her to help deal with everything. Their banter was enjoyable too.
I did feel that she rushed the relationship, it seemed to have gone from 0-60 in seconds! I wanted the tension to build some more, but that didn’t make me love the book any less.
All in all this book was a good enjoyable read. It had family tension, angst, banter and most of all, although it was short, the journey to finding true love.
I look forward to more from Wes and Cammie… Please say there will be more?
She is married with two children and spends most of her time behind a keyboard, writing
stories that come from her heart.
