Ava Barton has had one goal since the death of her husband, open a private school focused on helping children with their reading. In Relentless Pursuit by Sara Orwig she is months away from her goal, she just needs to finish getting the financial backing for it when Will Delaney enters her life, offering her a chance for that funding but providing a temptation that may keep her from her ultimate goal.
Will Delaney finds himself the unlikely guardian of his five-year-old niece Caroline who has shut herself away from the world with the death of her father. Will hires Ava to recommend a tutor for Caroline for the summer but after meeting the sexy Ava Will decides that only Ava will do for Caroline, and possible for him for the summer.
The nice thing about reading a Harlequin (whatever the line) is that you know what you are getting going in and Relentless Pursuit was no exception.A quick, easy read with some heat thrown in. I gave it a three star rating because it felt like at the beginning of the novel Orwig was doing a lot of telling about what was going to happen and then it would happen, so it felt a bit repetitive, not enough that I didn’t finish the book but enough that it was noticeable. Caroline was a cut child with some tragic experiences and I really felt for Will trying to do anything to reach her emotionally. Ava was a strong female character that mentioned how strong her ties to her family were and I would have enjoyed seeing more interactions between her and her sisters to back this up. Overall, I enjoyed Relentless Pursuit and recommend it for a one time read.
