The first time I saw Will Munroe I had him pegged as a typical LA douchebag—a little too handsome, a little too rich, a little too into his probiotic kale smoothies. The next time I ran into him—at his daughter’s parent/teacher conference (me: teacher, he: parent)—I noticed his steel grey eyes, his hard chest under a crisp white button down, and his suggestively bare ring finger. I was hooked.
If life really imitated art, he’d have swept me off my feet and taken me right there on the principal’s desk. Instead, we are stuck in our assigned roles. He’s the workaholic single dad of a precocious girl child, and I’m her fiery substitute teacher. Never the two shall meet. Enter one zany, yurt-dwelling ex-wife, a stock market that never sleeps, and some over-the-top, A-list fundraisers, and I’ve got plenty of drama ahead. Better to keep my hands to myself.
But when Will asks me out for a pancake breakfast, how can I resist? My heart (and my stomach) say yes, but am I willing to risk my job for a short stack and a romp in the hay? A slow, sensual, mind-blowing romp in the hay…
But where there’s a Will…

Poppy Dunne writes books with relatable heroines who speak their minds and whose riotous inner dialogue reflects their complex characters. Her goal is to deliver a story that has equal parts heart, romance and humor. Her heroes are swoon worthy, yet hold on to your suspension of disbelief, because they pick up their own socks and cook.
In her free time, she looks for hobbies other than Netflix and procrastinating to fill out this author bio. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two children.
Extra credit by Poppy Dunne is a quick read. Chelle is a teacher who runs into a very hot man while walking her dog. Later that day, she finds that man is one of her students parents
I truly liked the characters in the book. Chelle is funny and independent. I love how words slip out of her mouth. Will is sexy and he is totally into Chelle. He doesn’t make any bones about that.
While I truly enjoyed the characters and their interactions with each other, I found some aspects of this story just too over the top. Chelle works in a school where students need to find their chi and spiritual ways. Beyonce’s family members attend the school and other celebrity’s children do too. I just couldn’t connect with those aspects of the story.
Extra Credit is a cute and funny read. If you’re good with finding your chi and you like entertaining characters this is a fun and quick read.
