Desire is in session.Rachel Delaney, divorced mother with two boys, isn't complaining. Her life is fine. Really. There is one thing that could make it better, though: a strong, warm, male body to help her make it through the occasional lonely night. No strings, and no relationship, thanks. Just a little fun with a perfect stranger. And there's no more perfect a stranger than Rand.He's tall, blond, unattached, smokin' hot, and looking for the same thing Rachel is: wild, abandoned sex with no limits, no last names, and no complications-until Rachel's eldest son gets in trouble in class.Only then does Rachel discover that her down-and-dirty, dangerously sexy mystery lover is also the new school principal. They're not exactly the ideal role models for a troubled student acting out his own frustrations. With Rachel's life turned upside down, Rand's the only one who can make it right-by maybe taking their hot-bodied hook-ups into a warm-hearted new direction...

Crystal’s Thoughts:


Rachel Delaney is a divorced mom of two teenage sons working hard just to get by and still spend time with her children. When she runs into the same sexy stranger not once, but three times, Rachel decides to take him up on dinner and some no-names, no-strings-attached fun. Sneaking around her sons and an ex-husband, who seems to excel at making her life even more difficult, Rachel is introduced to a whole new sensual world where all her naughty fantasies come true. 
Rand is new to town and not looking for a relationship but when he continues to run into the same woman he knows it is the ‘Law of Attraction’ at work. Convincing her to take a walk on the wild side with him won’t be easy but Rand knows it will be worth it. 
When Rachel is called into the school though for her son the last person she expects to see is Rand sitting behind the principal’s desk. Rachel knows that if it ever came out that she was having a steamy affair with the school’s principal she could kiss her life as she knows it and her son’s respect, good bye. Can Rand persuade Rachel that she deserves to be happy and have her own needs met, and that what they do behind closed doors is their own business and no one else’s? Or will Rachel run, leaving Rand and possibly happiness behind?


The Principal’s Office was a panties-dripping hot erotic romance with two well written and relatable characters that had an amazing chemistry and easily hooked me. 


Rand was a fun and sexy hero who knew just what Rachel needed. With the looks of a Viking warrior he easily fulfilled all of Rachel’s fantasies and took her to new heights that she never thought to explore. He was also incredibly sweet and supportive of Rachel and ended up being her perfect match, even if she didn’t realize it at first. J 
Rachel is in a slump, dealing with her asshole of an ex-husband and two angry teenagers is not easy but with Rand she can let it all go for a little while. Somewhat timid in her sexuality, running towards the more vanilla, Rand introduces Rachel to a whole new side to explore from exhibitionism, voyeurism, toys and so much more. This novel is sure to get you all hot & bothered and in need of a cold shower or some relief afterwards. It was very easy to immerse myself into Rachel's character and it was wonderful to watch her grow into a strong independent woman. Together Rand and Rachel made an exciting couple to read about and it was great to see a happily ever-after for them. 


The plot itself was so-so and pretty predictable but it still made for a good read. If you’re looking for a five-alarm fire sexy kind of light and fun read then I would definitely recommend The Principal’s Office to you. And even though this is the third in the DeKnight trilogy I didn’t feel as if I was missing anything integral. The connection between the books is based through Rachel’s work place; readers get glimpses and a few scenes from these characters but that is all. Makes a wonderful stand-alone.

Great review. I love the plot..to bad it was so-so..that would appeal to me more then the steamy sex scenes.

There was some tension and mild suspense in the relationship, especially towards the end but it was def. the heated romance and chemistry between the two characters that made the book. :)I would still recommend it if you enjoy erotic romance.
