They say that time heals all wounds. And Tessa Maycroft she is still healing after an assaulted that occurred in college. Working as a librarian and part time at a women’s shelter, Tessa plunges into her work, having a need for control since the assault. She dates occasionally but only the type of man that she knows she can handle no matter what. This has been working for her until she realizes just how attracted to her new neighbor she is. It frightens her because he is not the type you control.
Zander York is the new professor on campus, teaching Psychology and having every female literally begging for more assignments. Under his calm and cool demeanor, with just the right sense of humor, lurks a man with a painful past. His sister in law was stalked and murdered, devastating him in a way he never thought possible.
To keep his new job, Zander must be in a serious commitment relationship. Not being in one, he looks for the next best idea; he asks his attractive neighbor Tessa if she would be willing to pretend that they are a couple. Tessa agrees and decides to get some of her own questions answered about him. Their acting becomes a real relationship, causing Zander to worry about being hurt again, while Tessa has problems of her own - being stalked and having creepy messages sent to her. Tessa has to make the difficult decision of trusting Zander with her past and heart or keeping in control and risk losing him.
This was the first book I have read by Ms. Green and she succeeded in grabbing my attention and keeping it. Ms. Green has created a tale that leaves you on the edge of your seat with the tension between Tessa and Zander. BEST LAID PLANS is not a quick feel-good fun-read; instead you get so much more. It is a serious romance with just the right amount of excitement and mystery. It will leave you wanting more and unable to put the book down until it is done.
