Sandra has pieced her life back together after her divorce. Along with her sister, she started her own preschool, so she could spend more time with her four-year-old daughter. Her ex is an actor and wants nothing to do with his little girl.  When Sandra’s sister takes it upon herself to invite a sexy actor to do research at her school, it is all that Sandra can do, to not fall for him. 

Ben is living a carefree life, but he is looking for something more, at least professionally.  He is up for a role that could bring him an Oscar. But he has never really been around kids. The solution is easy enough. Spend two weeks at a preschool to learn how to talk to kids.  Quickly Ben finds himself falling for the closed up Sandra, and her little girl.

The Role Of A Life Time has some good times, bad times, and lots of sweet romance. It had good writing but I do wish that it had delved into the character’s lives a bit more, for instance it would have been nice for Steve, the ex, to show up even if it had been a disaster. Other than that The Role Of A Life Time was great fun to read.
