***REVIEW*** Catching Whitney by Amy Hale

Title: Catching Whitney
Author: Amy Hale
Reviewer: Angie
Rating: 5 Stars
I thoroughly enjoyed this novella by Amy Hale! It was a quick read that left me satisfied, and, yet, excited to read more about Aiden and Whitney (and Lindsey and Blaine).
The premise is fun, and very relatable, especially for an elementary teacher. Whitney and her best friend, Lindsey, go to a town miles away from their own, so they can have a fun Girl's Night Out and not worry about embarrassing themselves in front of students' parents or coworkers. What Whitney doesn't realize is that the world is a small place, and one night will come back in a most interesting way. She has to decide if that is a good thing, or not.
I love the care Whitney has for her students and the fact that this story made teaching a huge part of Whitney. Although this book was based on romance (and definitely did a great job with it), her career was an integral part of the story. I found this very realistic, and refreshing. It wasn't about billionaires, or people who didn't seem to have to go to work, but about what real people may fantasize about.
I sincerely hope to read more with these characters and will definitely read more Amy Hale works.
I received an ARC in return for an honest review.
My name is Whitney Dawson, and I suck at love. I’m not exaggerating. My relationships don’t just end; they die a horrible, agonizing death.

With a nasty break up behind me, and my mind made up to avoid relationships like the plague, I try to enjoy a girls’ night out with my best friend Lindsey. That’s where I meet Aidan. Despite my reservations, I agree to one mind-blowing, amazing, curl your toes night with the hottest guy I’ve barely met, knowing full well that I’ll never see him again. Or so I think…

As a teacher with a new school year in full swing, I contact a parent about a new student and end up face to face with Aidan. His son is in my class, and avoiding this widowed dad, and any complicated emotional entanglements falling for him will bring, becomes a test I may very well fail.

Should I take the cowardly way out, or give love one more chance?
