Looking for a romance that starts at a costume party

The book im looking for starts at a costume party, the main female character convinces her friend to dress up, and she meets a guy there (if i remember correctly he is dressed as a pirate and she is dressed as a belly dancer).  As the story progresses the guy helps the girl with an after school program for kids not knowing she is the girl from the party. They eventually become friends and he finds out. 


If you know the name or author that would be great.  I stupidily deleted this from my nook and would like to read it again.  Thanks in advance for any information.

ImpetuousBack of the Book

Grade school teacher Carlie McDaniels trades in her frumpiness for the look of an exotic harem girl, at least for one costume party. So long, spinsterhood—and hello tall, dark and handsome Tyler Ramsey….


Even after the best night of their lives, Tyler hasn't guessed the identity of his harem hottie…and Carlie plans on keeping him in the dark. After all, a gorgeous guy like Tyler would never fall for his smart-talking best friend. And Carlie's not sure she wants to know what would happen if he ever unveiled the naked truth!
