Heartbreakingly beautiful and devastatingly annoying, Timaeus Lambros, a deaf, former military translator, has just been assigned as my co-teacher for the rest of the school year.
His stupid-hot face gets on my nerves.
So does his well-fitting jeans.
Charming and gorgeous men like him should not be teachers.
They should be locked away in a storage closet… with me.
But that’s just a teachers’ lounge fantasy with a big dreamy sigh attached.
Tim and I can never be a thing. He’s broody and closed off, while I’m the new owner of a one-way ticket back to Costa Rica, thanks to budget cuts.
But my Abuelita always said life wasn’t a fairytale. So even if Tim does have a magical tongue and a dreamy body, we still might not get a happily ever after.
“Well, well, Mr. Broody. It’s nice to finally meet you. I have to say, Milah hasn’t been that forthcoming about…” He motions up and down my body with a long nail, “you.”
“Oh my God, Pe!” Milah’s eyes are wide when she scans our group. “I’m so sorry. I’m Milah. Tim’s co-teacher.”
“You mean his boss,” adds Hayes, his hands signing along with his words. I make sure to look around to see if anyone saw him do it, but no one seems to care that we’re standing in the middle of the room chatting.
Milah grins. “I guess you could say that.” She doesn’t sign her words though and I wonder if she saw me do a sweep of the place. But when she shakes each of my crew’s hands and introduces Felipe, I decide she didn’t catch it. Of course she didn’t, Tim. Everyone is here trying to have a good time. No one is worrying about if we’re being looked at. They’ve all signed since we walked in which could look to outsiders like any one of us could be deaf.
“So, Felipe, do you have any grungy hallways that seem a little stripper-y?” I snap out of the signing debate when I see Theo half-sign his words to Felipe. Did I interpret that correctly? “I thought we were coming to a strip club—” Milah’s eyes narrow at me and all I can do is smile. “—and I was looking forward to some filthy romps against something that might end up with me needing an antibiotic later.” Have mercy on my soul. I interpreted it correctly. I guess I should be lucky he didn’t say worse.
“He doesn’t mean that,” I say, mostly because it’s the right thing to say. No one needs to know about Theo’s sexcapades this early into meeting him.
“Shut up, Lambros. That’s exactly what I mean. Point me to a good rug that won’t hurt her knees.” This time, Anniston pinches his side and it makes the group laugh. Whether he really means to have a romp against something filthy or just tried to break the ice between all of us, I’ll never know. Theo works in mysterious ways.
About the Author:
A self-proclaimed reader enthusiast, Kristy started her writing journey back in 2009, reading and writing when her daughter was napping. Establishing her place in Corporate America (because something had to pay the bills), writing became her dirty, late-night secret.
After eight long years, she released her debut novel, Commander in Briefs. It was a long road, but she can honestly say, the road less traveled had the most beautiful sights.
The only thing Kristy Marie loves as much as reading and writing is sports! Especially those that require muscles and a nice ass. Her favorite is, and always will be, baseball. She’s such a fan, that she even married her small town’s high school’s centerfielder where they still live with their three badass kids.

Interpreter got me. Damn my freaking heart…
This is an inspiring and engaging story, beautiful with this irresistible charm, wild and passionate. A hint of colorful characters and hotness all wrapped up in an explosive duet, Milah and Tim.
I loved so many things in the story, how emotional I was sometimes, how eager I was for every interaction between them, smiling so hard it hurt, craving and treasuring each moment. I have not enough words to tell how much I adored Kristy Marie’s words, putting on paper so much love and heart. The chemistry was off the charts, vibrant and dynamic. I just fell in love with these two from the first page.
Milah was a heart headed, stubborn and a bit crazy woman, who wasn’t afraid to push people out of their comfort zone. A little bulldozer of sexiness, teaching how to be brave and sharing the love to the kids of her class. And Tim… ovaries explosion alert! A man resigned to his fate, not wanting to be a burden, still struggling to move on from his situation who seemed to be cold but just hiding all the fire inside and the sweetness. Oh my! Swoony and smoking hot at the same time.
I adored the power struggle and how they teased the other without taking any bullshit. The sexual tension was on point, they made me smile and laugh so many times I lost count, strengthening my love for their story. In spite of their strong personalities, I appreciated these characters with sensitivity and vulnerability making them more endearing and lovable.
I’ve been drawn to the inner beauty of the main characters and also the supportive ones who created such a wonderful family, even if not related by blood. People who were supportive of each other through the bad and good times, noisy and caring. The kind of family every people would love to be part of. They won me over.
I’ve only read Hayes and Bianca’s story in Drifter and I was already falling for this family. Really hard. It was once again full of emotion, sincere and all the feels!
I can’t wait to read more! Next book, please?
