An entertaining story of Callie Taylor a 31-year-old schoolteacher who suddenly discovers the father that she’s never known, that she’d been told who died before she was born, is actually alive. And not only that, but he’s a wealthy senator running for president. This is the story of how the celebrity of her newfound father turns her quiet, happy life into an upheaval.
I gravitated to Callie’s character. She is an intelligent down-to-earth, every day homegirl, happy in her mediocre world. She has no intention of knowing this father whom she just found out is actually alive. She has no intention of meeting him or her half-siblings or establishing a relationship. Quite the contrary she’s happy to live her life away from any notoriety. But the father wants to meet her so here we go. Despite her discomfort and misgivings, she eventually consents to a meeting.
The story picks up some romance when 32 y/o Dylan Talbot (stepson to her dad), is commissioned to be the spokesperson and go-between for her father.
I liked this fun but unoriginal story of Callie and Dylan...on opposite ends of the socially wealthy spectrum, who fight a mutual attraction...(each for their own valid reasons). He is enlisted to be a spy of sorts, to find out if she has any ulterior motives against her father. And because he genuinely likes Callie, the guilt trip Dylan harbors doesn’t sit well. It was a cute, predictable story. You can see the massive tornado a’comin’ a mile away. Each character has the usual emotional damage to overcome. Their inner dialogue is timed and conveyed nicely. The narration is balanced nicely with witty dialogue. Good sentence structure and no editing issues. It’s always a relief to read an author who knows their English. Told dual POV 3rd person. An overall enjoyable, lightweight read. Very PG-PG13.
Callie has believed her entire life that her father died in a car accident before she was born. After her mother passes away she finds out through her mother's best friend that not only is he alive but that he is presidential hopeful Senator Warren Sherbrooke.
Dylan Talbot has helped to run his step father's conglomerate of hotels and other businesses for some time now. But when he learns that Warren has a mysterious daughter from before his mother and Warren met he is suspicious and feels he must protect his family so agrees to keep an eye on the new step sister. As the two spend more and more time together feelings develop and blossom into something far more serious. At least that's what Callie believed, until she over hears the real reason behind Dylan's actions.
Sweet romantic story and great characters that I'm sure we will read more about in future Sherbrooke's of Newport books.

It's very well written, has a bit of mystery, intrigue and of course romance.
Cali leads a simple life as a school teacher with her little dog Lucky. When one day her life is upended by her late mothers friend in the form of a letter. Mrs Lee has posted a copy of this letter to Senator Warren Sherbrooke telling him that Cali is his daughter.
Warren already has 2grown up children Sara and Jake with his wife Elizabeth and a stepson Dylan. While discussing the letter Dylan offers to be mediator with Cali until they can arrange a meeting.
And so the story begins...
This is the delightful, sweet and confidently written story of Callie Taylor who quite suddenly learns the true identity of the father she has never known. Though her father is eager to meet her, he is a presidential candidate and other members of the family regard Callie with some scepticism. A plan is hatched for her to be met initially by Dylan Talbot, his mission to ensure the news of Callie's existence does not hurt her father's candidacy. But neither Dylan nor Callie is prepared for the feelings that soon blossom between them!
Though the progress of the story was quite predictable I found myself willing Callie on to happiness and wanting to be there for her Happy Ever After moment.
Fans of romance will love The Teacher's Billionaire and a sequel is on its way!
I should have realised that a book with 'billionaire' in the title would not be worth reading. Drippy, plotless, really not worth the time it takes to read. Totally unbelievable story. Glad it was free.
Their romance is sweet.
Overall I would recommend this for a quick read and I am tempted to purchase the other novels in the series.
