A quirky and light-hearted romcom!
Extra Credit was a joy to read. It’s really hard to find books that put a constant smile on your face. But this book did that and more; the unique characters and spirited storyline was pure delightfulness!
The charismatic energy between the characters was engaging and utterly humorous. From the moment Will and Chelle met, you could instantly sense their attraction and unconventional relationship yet to come. Knowing their histories, you couldn’t help but root for them. They each found a way to overcome any stereotypes they had for the other, and found a real and genuine connection. Every interaction together buzzed with an intensity that only powered their feelings for each other.
And their individual personalities made it clear why they fit so well together. Will is your typical man’s man, the type of guy who works hard but plays even harder. Tall, dark, and undeniably sexy, I swooned over him just as much as Chelle. And Chelle has a lovable, spit-fire attitude. Her compassion and caring nature balanced her tenacious demeanor. Their relationship was fun and very charming, but obviously not without it’s challenges; first being the fact Will has a 10 yr old daughter, and an eccentric, hippie ex-wife. Mind you, I say ex-wife loosely. And I don’t want to list the second and third facts, ’cause that would completely spoil the entire plot of the story. Trust me, it gets good! Just the title alone gives you a good hint. 😉
Extra Credit was incredibly well written. The comedic dialogue and inner monologues had me laughing until I cried! I don’t know how Poppy did it, but this book has everything. Comedy, emotional turmoil, and a bit of dramatic flare. And the sexiness gets you all hot and bothered, you can’t help but fan yourself when reading it.
If you love a good romcom with entertaining characters, then you definitely need to read Extra Credit! I highly recommend it!

The first time I saw Will Munroe I had him pegged as a typical LA douchebag—a little too handsome, a little too rich, a little too into his probiotic kale smoothies. The next time I ran into him—at his daughter’s parent/teacher conference (me: teacher, he: parent)—I noticed his steel grey eyes, his hard chest under a crisp white button down, and his suggestively bare ring finger. I was hooked.
If life really imitated art, he’d have swept me off my feet and taken me right there on the principal’s desk. Instead, we are stuck in our assigned roles. He’s the workaholic single dad of a precocious girl child, and I’m her fiery substitute teacher. Never the two shall meet. Enter one zany, yurt-dwelling ex-wife, a stock market that never sleeps, and some over-the-top, A-list fundraisers, and I’ve got plenty of drama ahead. Better to keep my hands to myself.
But when Will asks me out for a pancake breakfast, how can I resist? My heart (and my stomach) say yes, but am I willing to risk my job for a short stack and a romp in the hay? A slow, sensual, mind-blowing romp in the hay…
But where there’s a Will…
