Tessa has her future planned to perfection. First get into medical school and become a doctor like everyone else in her family—despite her queasiness around blood. Second meet and marry someone who is just as successful as her brother—the new, handsome doctor in her ward will be just right. And last, prove to her brother that, despite what he thinks, she has it all together. Easy, right? Except that she’s just been called to be the ward road show director for the upcoming stake singles activity, a distraction she doesn’t need. And when a mix-up means that she’s partnered with her bug-eating, seventies dressing home teacher? It’s a disaster with a capital D, and she knows that no one in her family can ever find out about this.

As a PhD student studying insects, Henry White has had his fair share of girls try to change him into someone more socially acceptable—including his ex- fiancé. When his sister convinces him to join the singles ward for his last year of school, he decides to play up his oddness in order to keep the singles at a distance. When he begins to work with Tessa on the road show, he finds that she’s managed to get past his defenses. One little stage kiss is all it takes to make him question everything. But then his ex-fiancé comes home from her mission with one goal in mind: win Henry back, no matter what it takes.

Tessa is soon faced with a choice. Go for the perfect life she’s always pushed herself to have, or find the courage to look past appearances and figure out what she really wants.

My Review: 5 Stars

I think everyone can understand Tessa to some degree. She lives to make her family proud and about kills herself in the process. Everything she does is to please them, especially her snotty brother, Jenkins. I could have smacked that dude--a few times. But do you know who is disappointed when you don't live up to high expectations? Only the one setting them, as Tessa learned.

Backing up a bit, Tessa is on track to becoming a doctor and her new home teacher, Logan, is the perfect guy for her--because he'll win her family's approval. That first meeting with Logan and Henry was absolutely hilarious and unexpected, and right away, I was endeared to dear old Henry.

Their roadshow, a modern spin on the Princess and the frog, was so perfect and fun and really brought out a whole display of feelings and true colors. 

In a class case of opposites-attract, this story completely captivated me, especially the characters. I loved the message of following your dreams...and your heart.

Content: mild romance; mild religion (not preachy)
