Chris, a high school English teacher, finds himself distracted by a very unruly, know-it-all student who constantly disrupts his class. Somehow he manages to make it through his first year of teaching without killing the mouthy, arrogant student, but is glad to see him finally graduate. Five years later, Chris is shocked to discover that the former student, Riley, has returned. This time he’s a teacher and an athletic coach. Unfortunately for Chris, the two have to work together. When Riley shows up in his classroom one evening after school, they both remember that Riley has a detention session he failed to serve prior to graduation.

Bad Boys Get Detention by Jeff Enro is the fourth book in the Bad Boys series. It’s an enjoyable short story about a high school teacher (Chris) who’s attracted to one of his students (Riley). Chris is annoyed by Riley and how he somehow manages to push all of Chris’ buttons. Riley is cocky, popular, muscular, handsome, top of his class smart, and almost always late to Chris’ class which drives Chris crazy. This leads to Chris giving Riley lots of detentions over the year and one that doesn’t get fulfilled.

Five years later and low and behold Riley is back to torment Chris by now being a teacher and assistant coach. Riley hasn’t really changed in the five years since Chris has last seen him and nothing has changed. He’s still pushing all of Chris’ buttons, and Chris is still just as attracted to him. On their second day of school meetings, Riley manages to push Chris too far, and Chris blows up at him. Chris retreats to his new classroom and spends the rest of the day decorating his classroom. Riley comes to apologize after everybody has gone home for the day and the rest of the book is just hot, hot, hot. They definitely manage to work out all of their problems and misunderstandings.

I will be reading this short story again and again. Definitely an enjoyable lunch time or just before bed read. The story was well written and nicely edited. The story is only 28 pages so don’t expect a lot of in-depth character development or plot line. But I did enjoy both characters and the plot line. This is the first book by Jeff Enro that I have read and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series by this author.
