    A heartwarming read.

    John and Rachel fell in love as teenagers. Their relationship did not end well. Feelings were hurt. Hearts were broken. As adults each is trying to find their way. Rachel now the single mother of three boys, John is looking for help in order to open a youth center. Unfortunately, John has not left a good impression on the town because of his abrupt departure years ago and needs help from Rachel who had her heart broken by John. Ultimately an agreement is made, John will help Rachel if Rachel helps him. What starts as a necessity may lead to more. Just for Appearances was given to me for an honest review. I thought the story was a little slow in some areas and somewhat chaotic in others but still a heartwarming read.

    Enjoyable read

    Really enjoyed this one! The characters really dug their way in to my heart. The kind loving way John handles Rachel's kids was beautiful and I felt badly for both John and Rachel as the truth of the past ending to their relationship is revealed. Single mom Rachel Clarke is in desperate need of help and it appears the only one who can give her the help is old flame John MacDonald. Now if she can just balance going back to work, the guilt of leaving her kids, and the attraction that is obviously still there for John. Oh yeah, and a royal pain of an ex...ugh This is a good one and I definitely recommend it.

    Love the high school sweethearts story line!!!

    Rachel Clarke is a single mom who wants to re-join the workforce. She no longer wants to be dependent on the alimony from her ex-husband. With three boys she'll need a full time nanny. In walks John MacDonald. Rachel's high school sweetheart and he's asking for the nanny job. In exchange for being the nanny to her boys, John wants Rachel to help him earn back the trust of the townspeople. In high school, instead of staying and bringing the football team to a state championship, John left to go live with his father in California. We all know how important high school football is to a small town. He wants to build a youth activity center but needs the support of the town to do it. Once he gets the approval and builds it, he'll be leaving to build other centers in other towns. The old sparks are still there between them but will they act on that old spark knowing he'll be leaving at the end of the summer? How is he NOT going to get attached to her boys? Very entertaining story! I couldn't stop reading until I was completely done. John is the whole package. He's responsible, sexy, has a body to die for and did I say he was sexy? This book is full of fantastic characters and small town life. I love it! This is my first book by Jenna Rutland and it will definitely not be my last. Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

    Second chance for a mom and the one who got away.

    Rachel loved John so much, she told a lie to set him free. Now she's divorced with three sons and in need of a last minute nanny for the summer. John was crushed when his girlfriend Rachel broke up with him soon after they made love for the first time. Years have passed, but he's never forgotten her. Since his mother took on the role of surrogate grandmother to Rachel's boys, he learns of the nanny dilemma. One look at Rachel and all those old feelings came rushing back. What he didn't know was the same thing happened to her. Over the course of the summer, Rachel and John get to know each other again. Rutland creates an epic level of sexual tension as the two fumble their way through the hot summer nights. The burn is slow, but completely necessary for the development of Rachel and John as individuals as well as a couple. I had trouble thinking about how the summer could possibly end well for our lovers, but Rutland gives us all the perfect happily ever after. Thanks so much to Entangled Publishing and Jenna Rutland for providing me with a copy of Just for Appearances in exchange for an honest review.
