What if all you want is the one thing you can’t have?
First grade teacher Emily Towson always does the right thing. The sensible thing. But in her dreams, she does bad, bad things with the town’s baddest boy: Tanner O’Connor. But when he sells her grandmother a Harley, fantasy is about to meet a dose of reality.
And then he goes and calls her “sensible”...
Tanner can’t believe sweet Emily is standing in his shop. Yelling and waving her hands and looking so god damn sexy he’s having trouble focusing. He’d spent two hard years in prison, with only the thought of this “good girl” to keep him sane.
He really should send her away...
Before either one thinks though, they’re naked and making memories on his tool bench with apparently the oldest condom in history. Now Tanner’s managed to knock-up the town’s “good girl” and she’s going to lose her job over some stupid “morality clause” if he doesn’t step up.
But can this bad boy teach his good girl they’re perfect for each other in time?

when the town good girl turns baaad
1st grade teacher, Emily Towson, is the quintessential good girl of the town. She lives with her grandmother, obeys the rules, dresses demurely, and dates a banker...but when her boyfriend proposes marriage because she's 'sensible', Emily becomes incensed and does an 'un-sensible' thing! Emily goes to the bike store of the O'Connor brothers to give Tanner O'Connor a piece of her mind for selling a 'hog' to her grandmother...and does a whole lot more!
Tanner O'Connor accepted responsibility for vehicular manslaughter in the accident that killed one of his best friends, and was convicted to 2 years in prison. Of course no one knows that thoughts of sweet good girl Emily kept him sane in prison.
Now he's back and is running a bike shop with his brothers, and doing his best to stay under the radar. When he sells a bike to Emily's grandmother, Tanner has second thoughts once she leaves and tears up her check and cancels the order. Tanner is not expecting Emily to barge into his shop after hours...and, after a heated discussion, ends up stripping for him.
Several weeks later and Emily and Tanner are expectant parents. Tanner surprises Emily when he insists on being part of their child's life...although he's fighting his insecurities about his parenting abilities. Can Tanner and Emily survive the ups and downs of pregnancy, as well as define their relationship, while Emily is fighting the town council to retain her job since she broke the 'morality' clause? Whew, judgy people in a small town...just saying!
There is also a sub story of blossoming love between Emily's persistent grandmother and Tanner's former cell mate, who is trying to settle into town after serving his 30+ years of prison time.
This book is about forgiveness, second changes and acceptance. It is well written, full of humor but also mixes in some poignant moments. I am really looking forward to more stories from Saddlers Cove.
