ME + YOU is a fun short romance that left me with a happy heart. I loved Lori. She's a teacher and her love for her students got me right in the feels. Though she lacks a little self confidence she was a great female lead. Mark is a fun male lead. His struggles with being a single dad of a little girl is very endearing. To add to his mess he has a quirky ex-wife that has a very different way on parenting. He's not looking for a relationship but there's just something about Lori he can't turn away from. ME + YOU is a fun story about hope and true love that will leave you with a happy heart. I've not read any of Brenda Gayle's books before but I will be reading more.

A cute, sweet novella, packed with parenting issues and romance. I liked that the characters are in their forties, they are easy to relate to, and ponder questions that many of us have, at one time or another. Lori can hear her biological clock ticking, and is considering her option to ever be a mother. She loves to teach, she is great in it, has a great contact with the children, but she desires to have her own child, to be a mother. Mark is struggling to be a dad, or not really, he is a great dad, kind, supportive and understanding, he just feels like he doesn't measure up, that he is needed in his child's life, and is feeling miserable. I was surprised his strong emotional reactions to everything, especially him being color blind, got an extreme reaction. I found the color world fascinating, very interesting concept, that I have heard of before, but never with children. A charming little story, likable characters, interesting issues, precious kids, and dainty romance ~ Three Spoons with a teaspoon on the side

I have to straight up say that when I considered this book, it drew me in because of the age of the heroine. As my own age creeps up into the *cough* early 40's, I am looking more and more at mature characters. Don't get me wrong, I still don't mind those covers that have the young hard bodied men on them, but I am at an age where I can appreciate a little, let's call it wisdom, in my romances. Lori is actually the second grade teacher of Mark's daughter Grace. Grace is having trouble with basic math, and calls Grace's parents in for a conference about it. When Mark asks Lori to tutor Grace, they start to get to know one another. Of course, misunderstandings tear them apart, but with a bit of mild Valentine shenanigans from Grace, these two will get a chance to talk and make up. I liked the fact that even though this was a novella, it stretched the story over a period of about 6 or 7 months. I really felt that Lori and Mark got to know each other before the I Love You's were shared. Also, after finishing the book, I can appreciate the subtle details in the cover. For a novella, this was a fun read with quite a bit of depth. I gave it 4 stars for surprising me with it's complexity. Thanks to Wild Rose Press and Tasty Book Tours for the opportunity to read and review the book.

Review Courtesy of April Hollingworth Okay so this book is just brilliant. It catches you by the heartstrings and leads you down its path, not letting you go until way after you've finished the last wonderful page. A must read book with some pretty awesome characters. I loved it. The Review: Teacher Lori Tait has always wanted a family, but now she's 40, she’s pretty much decided all the good men are taken. Instead, she devotes herself to her students, particularly one little girl whose struggle with math seems inconsistent with an otherwise brilliant and artistic mind. Mark Wilder hadn’t planned to become a father, but when a fling resulted in his daughter, Grace, he whole-heartedly embraced the role. Raised in a family of boys, what does he know about women and girls? Once he learns of Grace’s inability to comprehend basic math, he welcomes the role of tutor as a way to connect with his daughter; the opportunity to spend time with her sexy teacher is an added bonus. When Lori cracks the mystery of Grace’s problem Mark’s world is thrown into turmoil; he’s the last person who can help his daughter. He pushes everyone away, confirming Lori’s theory about men. Grace, however, has other plans. Using her new-found understanding of math, she sets out to prove to her father and teacher that, together, they add up to the perfect match.
