Smart girl summer

Kristin Rockaway

Book - 2022

This summer's not going as Abby Atkinson planned. A thieving PhD advisor, a screeching halt to her grad program, and zero job offers have left her high and dry. Nothing a little eat, pray, love across the Mediterranean can't fix, right? Or eat, pray, tutor, more like. Her dissertation might be dead, but she can still teach. She'll just have to do it for six weeks on a superyacht with a billionaire and his daughter. A playboy billionaire, according to the tabloids--but Abby's ...not so sure. As big as his bank account is, his heart's that much bigger, especially when it comes to his daughter. Their strained relationship could use some mending, though, and Abby can help. She was hired to teach junior high math, but she'll make room in her lesson plans. Falling for her boss wasn't part of the plan either. Maybe it's time she let her heart, not her head, teach her something new.

Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

Rockaway (Life, Unscheduled) strikes gold with this beachy rom-com. Physicist Abby Atkinson speaks up after her PhD adviser steals her research, an act that costs her the summer teaching position she was banking on for cash. Luckily, she soon lands a tutoring job that sends her to the Mediterranean aboard a luxurious yacht owned by billionaire Richard Vale, whose 12-year-old daughter, Bijou, just flunked sixth-grade math. Abby initially buys into the tabloids' characterization or Richard as a typical playboy billionaire, but slowly comes to learn that he's actually a hardworking philanthropist and a dedicated single father. After Richard seeks Abby's counsel about how to engage his distant daughter—and it works—the pair fall for each other, though they attempt to keep their relationship on the down-low. They're not successful for long, and when the tabloids catch wind of their fling and publish articles impugning Abby's reputation and ethics, their relationship hits the rocks. Smart, snappy prose, a lovably nerdy billionaire for a hero, and a complex tween who steals most scenes she's in, make this instantly appealing. It's perfect summer reading.
