For The Love of English by A.M. Hargrove
Release Date: September 15th, 2016
From USA Today Bestselling Author, A.M. Hargrove, comes a New Adult, Single Dad, Sexy, Stand Alone Romance.
Single dad, Beckley Bridges, is sexy as hell.
No, really, he’s the hottest thing since the sun was created.
Honest to God, crack an egg on him and the thing will sizzle.
So what’s the problem?
He’s also a gigantic jerk.
I hate the bastard.
I try to avoid him at all costs.
But for some reason, everywhere I go he seems to show up.
Only the real issue is his daughter, English.
She’s an adorable quirky first-grader who’s the sweetest thing since iced tea.
And she’s one of my students but also the love of his life.
So I have to deal with him on a professional level.
It’s not easy.
On a scale of easy to hard, dealing with Beckley Bridges is like nails screeching across a blackboard.
But when English’s mother tries to gain custody after abandoning her on Beckley’s doorstep as an infant, he’ll do anything possible to keep English under his roof.
That’s how he ends up propositioning me.
And crazy as it sounds?
I find myself considering it.

About the Author:
One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, USA Today bestselling author, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn’t do something soon, it would be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So she made a quick decision to quit her job and reinvented herself as a Naughty and Nice Romance Author.
She fancies herself all of the following: Reader, Writer, Dark Chocolate Lover, Ice Cream Worshipper, Coffee Drinker (swears the coffee, chocolate, and ice cream should be added as part of the USDA food groups), Lover of Grey Goose (and an extra dirty martini), #WalterThePuppy Lover, and if you’re ever around her for more than five minutes, you’ll find out she’s a non-stop talker.
For first-time teacher Sheridan Monroe, it’s all about the kids. Having lost her parents early on, Sheridan is especially invested in giving the children that she teaches a safe place, and letting them know that they are special and loved. When English Bridges arrives in her class, it doesn’t take long at all for Sheridan to fall completely in love with this quirky little girl. Beckley Bridges, on the other hand, is another story altogether. Gruff, unapproachable, and sometimes downright rude, English’s father quickly becomes one of Sheridan’s least favorite people. But English is special, and, when her safety is threatened, even two people with nothing in common will come together to make sure she’s taken care of.
I enjoyed absolutely everything about FOR THE LOVE OF ENGLISH. Sheridan is like a breath of fresh air, and is the perfect foil for Beck, who has had to be responsible for so long that he spends a little bit too much time in his own head. Being on her own for so long has left Sheridan pretty much filter-free, and the things that come out of her mouth had me laughing out loud. I honestly don’t think that Beck knew what to do with her, and that his standoffishness had more to do with not having encountered her special brand of living life than anything else.
In Sheridan’s opinion, Beck is at the very bottom of the list of people that she’d like to spend time with. But, time and again, fate and English work their magic to ensure that Sheridan and Beck are firmly in each other’s orbit. Soon enough, the two begin to see beneath the surface, and their feelings for each other evolve.
I’ve been a fan of A.M. Hargrove’s for a while, but she really nailed it with this read. Besides the humor, the passion, and a little girl that stole my heart, FOR THE LOVE OF ENGLISH also had a suspenseful storyline that kept me reading far into the night so that I could see how things resolved, and I was riveted until the very last word. 4.5 sweet, sassy, sexy, suspenseful stars for this book, because everyone can use a little bit of English in their lives.
