I hope that you and your family are staying safe and healthy during this time!
March has ended (way too long!) and we are off to April! Can’t believe that we are done with three months of the year and what a dozy has it been so far. I have been very quiet due to LIFE. Work has been crazy along with everything that is happening in the world. In order to keep my mind busy and happy, I was able to get through four books this month.

He just wanted to complete his time with this wealthy family and get out. In comes Nandy Smith, golden girl from Pacific Hills who has the perfect image. She is not happy that Tyson will be staying with them since he might ruin her reputation and summer plans. As time goes, a love hate relationship forms within these two teens. Nandy brings out the softer side of Tyson and Tyson helps Nandy in loosening up. (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️)
