RC Boldt’s Teach Me series gives us a closer look at just how thin the line is between love and hate…
Fifth grade social studies teacher, Laney Kavanaugh, is no stranger to being left behind – her father taught her that at a young age. That’s why she always has her eyes wide open when it comes to men. She’s determined she will never again be the one left behind. She doesn’t let sex blur what they’re really doing; it’s always just sex.
Zachariah Mayson, fifth grade writing and English teacher, has been the bane of Laney’s existence from the moment they met at their shared elementary school. She can’t stand him. He gets under her skin like no other and is always utterly obnoxious in his attempts –and successes–in getting a rise out of her.
Until the wedding.
The night of their friends’ wedding, Laney gives in to a moment of melancholy, knowing she’ll never be able to let her guard down enough to let a guy close, let alone someday get married. She and Zach end up having the hottest night she’d ever experienced, showing her another side of him, a softer, sweeter one he’d hidden from her until now. Because now, he hoped she was finally ready to “see” him.
But when you’ve always guarded yourself against falling in love, can you let go of the past in order to embrace the future?
Well developed story with tempting characters and simmering romance! Again, I never thought I would dig teachers, but RC Boldt just writes them in the kind of light I never pictured. Sweet, sexy, sassy fun, this book thrilled me and melted me.
I thought Zach was such a hot, sometimes arrogant, man. You can tell he really had a thing for Laney but he just didn't know how to approach someone who had so many walls up. Even though he drove me nuts here and there, I thought he was one of the most utterly sweetest heroes I have ever read about. Laney was hurt more than once and is a bit leery about love and men. Zach drives her insane but one night changes how she sees him. Things sizzle and pop between these two. The chemistry is boiling hot and the sex is scrumptious. I am loving this series!
Hard To Handle gets a SMOLDERING FIVE SHOOTING STARS! Tempting, sweet, saucy, and amazingly written, this book is just too hot to handle. Fantastic job RC Boldt!
