Novel Review: The Principal's Office (DeKnight, #3) by Jasmine Haynes

Rating (Out of 5): ~3.5
Genre: Erotica
Publisher: Heat (Penguin)
Release Date: 2012
Spoilers?: No.

Goodreads Synopsis:


Rachel Delaney, divorced mother with two boys, isn't complaining. Her life is fine. Really. There is one thing that could make it better, though: a strong, warm, male body to help her make it through the occasional lonely night. No strings, and no relationship, thanks. Just a little fun with a perfect stranger. And there's no more perfect a stranger than Rand.

He's tall, blond, unattached, smokin' hot, and looking for the same thing Rachel is: wild, abandoned sex with no limits, no last names, and no complications-until Rachel's eldest son gets in trouble in class.

Only then does Rachel discover that her down-and-dirty, dangerously sexy mystery lover is also the new school principal. They're not exactly the ideal role models for a troubled student acting out his own frustrations. With Rachel's life turned upside down, Rand's the only one who can make it right-by maybe taking their hot-bodied hook-ups into a warm-hearted new direction...

The Cover:

I like this cover. It's eye-catching, pretty, I like the meaning behind it, and I like that it actually resembles a scene in the book.


This was a rather good book. I enjoyed it, it was hot, and there was also some nice characterization.
I liked Rachel. She is struggling with her two sons, newly divorced and trying to stay nice with her ex-husband, and then accidentally forming a relationship with her son’s principal. She flounders a few times, but I like where she stood by the end, what she decided to do for herself, along with her relationship with her sons getting better. And I definitely like how she stood up to her ex-husband.
Rachel and Rand are definitely hot together. I felt that they really were getting to a place where they could have a real relationship together, along with Rand getting along with her children. And the sex was really nice; kinky, with variety, some roleplay and voyeuristic stuff.
This was an all-around good book. I liked the characters and their growth, and I liked the sexy stuff. I look forward to reading something else by Haynes.
