Publisher's Summary

Everyone knows NOT to discuss how to raise children. The Men of the North have been living in exile for centuries, raising their boys without the influence of women. Now an experiment will bring girls and boys together in a new school with children and teachers from each side of the border. But how can two teachers work together when they don't agree on anything? 

Sparks fly in this clash of cultures when Archer Rex objects to Kya Rae's meditation "shit" that will surely turn his boys into wusses. He wants the kids to learn how to hunt and fight instead. Contains mature themes.

Simple and enjoyable

Love this book! Its simple, well paced throughout this book. I love how the author and narrator capture the emotion of the characters. Have listened to the book for at least 5times since i first got it! Never got tired of it!

Not so much on this one...

I love an alpha male and I love an independent woman. Not so much on this one. She just let him knock her up like that!
I'm all for pushy broody me Tarzan you Jane... but his blatant disregard for her sexual boundries was a bit too much. I get that they are what men could become in a vast dystopian future, however they have to have some form of respect. I am enjoying this series and hope that the rest are a little bit better. Chemistry aside, Archer is an a-hole!

Good book but big bone to pick

In general this was another great story about two characters I loved and an interesting plot including the start of the new school and more views in Christina and Boulder whom I’ve missed.

MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD THOUGH I TRIED TO WRITE IN GENERAL TERMS AND NOT GIVE AWAY THE ACTUAL EVENTS. I think knowing the other two books it was obvious some big drama would occur and they’d overcome it and get an HEA despite that: :-)

—>I don’t agree with other reviewers about the spanking of the child; it’s fiction and I saw that more as a way to Segway into Archer touching her than actually about the child anyway.
—>I don’t agree with other reviewers about the lack of chemistry between them, despite Kaia’s resistance to loosing her self I saw the chemistry when they came together. I could’ve done without so long of her resisting but it didn’t detract from the chemistry.
—>My problem. My huge huge problem is with Archer going and possibly taking another woman without being honest with Kaia about why he was asking her to marry him so sadly. Too far. I know there has to be drama blah blah or it won’t be exciting or suspenseful or as glorious when the HEA comes but any other women stuff is it HUGE no no especially when he didn’t even give Kaia a fair shot by TELLING her.
—>What bothered me more was her immediate forgiveness!!! My god I am glad he didn’t do it and came back to her and I imagine the relief she felt was huge but there was literally no anger or discussion about it. Not one tiny argument about how he’d been so willing, miserably or not, to take another woman without giving her the chance the real honest chance to know what was happening. Yes I get that Kaia was asked to marry him many times but I was actually sick right along with Kaia listening to the parts where it was almost too late for Kaia.

Again loved the story, fast listen with great same narrators but this plot point really made me frustrated. Will definitely still be racing on to Athena and Finn’s story.

Disappointed

The theme that women who are independent melt to macho stereotypes. The men don’t evolve at all. Had high hopes for the series

Still a great series

T he first book is still my favorite, but this one had its rough moments, but never did I want to stop listening. The narrators were great and I hope they don't change them for the rest of the series. This was a very good read because we got to know about the young girls and boys going to school. Definitely recommend highly.

Another wonderful Sequel

In my opinion this book was a great story about Kya and Archer. The story also explored the problems with opening a coed school. Never having any girls in their schools they begin to see problems with co education. Once again The author created a great escapism series.
Story 5/5
Steam 5/5
Narration 5+/5
Overall 5/5

A refreshing change of pace!

Fun and sexy with an interesting and surprising point of view. Narration is excellent. Looking forward to more from this author. Definitely worth a credit!

Interesting suggestions and attempts on education

It would have been nicer if this book was more concentrated on students's lives than a romance between Kya and Archer. I still don't understand why the girl had to be punished. The reason why she pushed the boy hard was because the boy had annoyed and terrified her so much. Why did they punish only the girl? The boy really should understand why he ended up in having a serious burn.

Love this series

I initially started this series because book 1 was part of a book club discussion. I was pleasantly surprised and now after the 3rd book in the series it has just gotten better with each book I read. I would definitely recommend this series. Great characters and humor.

Just excellent!

This series just keeps getting better and better. It’s both thoughtful and thought provoking. After reading and listening to so many mediocre romance stories it’s lovely to be immersed in a story so well done. Kudos to both the author and the narrators.
