He was the worst teacher I ever had. I was the worst student he ever taught.


I can’t believe I’m standing on the steps of Bracken Middle School again.

Ten years ago, this place was my worst nightmare, no thanks to Jack “McSlutbag” Slater, the teacher who blocked my shot at a full basketball scholarship. But time heals many wounds, and I’m only a few months away

Falling for Mr. Slater

Why yes I have!!! Lol

Y’all, I just love me some Kendall Grey and this book is written by her…umm alter ego~ Kendall Day. I did make sure this was OK to share… I stalked Kendall Grey all over social media and she even mentions it at the end of the book that she wrote with a pen name. I was just jumping for joy cuzz I love LOVE me sum Kendall Grey!!! This woman is always a one clicker for me and let me tell you that I fell in love with this Kendall Day’s writing as well. Fal
Scandal, teachers straining at their leashes and all the dirty things beneath the buttoned-up collars in middle school. Well then. Kendall Day’s ‘Falling For Mr. Slater’ sounded like one of those enemies-to-lovers romance that I’d love to have gotten my hands on. Written around a student-teacher type of relationship, I was well, sold by the attractive blurb, up until the opening lines of the story that made me want to toss it in immediately.

But apparently, to add spice to a teacher-student roma

I received a copy of this book from the publisher/author to review.

This job can suck. After teaching eighth grad gifted language arts for years, I'm being moved to remedial sixth grade science. New team. New subject. New everything. Oh and did I mention science now includes sex ed? Some of these kids-like that hellion Roxie Rambling, who a decade later still hold the title of My Worst Student Ever-probably know more about sex than me, and I'm an expert on the subject. To add insult to injury, I'

I absolutely loved Jack & Roxie!!!! I'm a huge Kendall Gray fan so I jumped all over the chance to read this book, and I fell head over heels for it! Kendall has this way of hooking you from the first page and I couldn't put this down once I started. The banter was so witty and these characters had me laughing out loud. So good. So, so, so good!

I love a sexy teacher romance, so, knowing who the author was, I had to get my eyes on this book. It did not disappoint! Roxie is sassy with equal parts sexy and sporty. I loved her character and how she stuck up for "those kids" while taking no crap off anyone else. Mr. Slater, while a bit on the obnoxious side due to how self-absorbed he was in the beginning, definitely redeemed himself for me by the end. I'm not a huge fan of a-hole male leads because I don't find that very appealing, but I'm ...more

I'm a HUGE Kendall Gray fan, so when I found out she was releasing a rom-com under the pen name Kendall Day I jumped at the chance to read it. And I wasn't let down. Once again this author reminded me why I ADORE her works!

Falling For Mr Slater was different from her past books, but just as fabulous. I was hooked from the start. A story about a teacher and his new teaching assistant who happens to be the girl who ruined his life.

I loved the Mr Slater and Roxie with an ie storyline. I found mys

Who's Hot For Teacher? . . .

Having recently witnessed my sister endured her final year of student teaching and state exams for teaching certification, and let me just state for a fact, her time was more stress then sex. Unlike this book which was a great work of fiction with a heart warming theme and some sexy scenes.

Mr. Jack Slater is anything but ready for the new school year since he's just met the new 'dragon lady' principal, been moved from 8th grade to 6th grade, has to now teach scienc

I was so excited to get a chance to read this. Honestly I love Kendall Day and her other personality Kendall Grey. She didn't fail me with this Rom-Com, I laughed all through out this story.

Mr. Slater is a 8th grade teacher who is trying his hardest to win Teacher of the Year. This year however, things in his school and life get tossed all around. Enter Roxie Rambling, student teacher. Roxie is the last person that he wants as his student teacher. Roxie and Mr. Slater have a history from way ba

This book gahh this book is so awesome!! I don’t think I will come up with the words to properly describe this book and how much I enjoyed it. It was funny, it was sexy, it was hawt, it was raunchy and it was adorable but underneath it all there was a message. Slater was such a typical guy going out with his wingman Savage (which I loved btw) and having all kinds of fun. And then teaching during the week and of course the school year. But not really paying attention to the trouble kids just puni ...more

This was a wonderful read..... I wasn't sure I liked it at first but kept going and it turned out to be a truly beautiful story of friendship, love, caring, romance and very swoony moments!!!! It was also an interesting inside look at the world of teachers and what they face daily. This book made my heart smile. This is the first book I have read by Kendall but I am sure it won't be the last.....

This book had me laughing so hard over the hashtag remarks and the assessments at the end of each chapter.. this book just flowed so nicely and had everything I like in a book. A fiercely independent woman, and swoon worthy, alpha in bed male and a unique love story. And the live scenes....#hothothot

Roxie-with-an-ie Rambling goes back to the scene of her heartache .. 8 years later .. BUT she never dreamed her dreams could be shattered In the matter of the first 5 minutes after she walks back into her old school. She had dreams of going back and making a difference to some students .. hopefully at least one .. in her student teaching but when she realizes she is shadowing Mr. McSlutbag her dreams come crashing down just like her spirt 8 years ago.

Jack Slater knew it was going to be a bad be

I really enjoyed this book. It was witty, well written and a great story. I recommend it. I'd like to read more by this author.

Every teacher has that one student. The student that makes them realize why they became a teacher. For Jack Slater, this wasn't Roxie with an ie Rambling. She ruined his life.

Mr. Slayter's world gets turned upside down on the first day of school. He gets moved from teaching 8th Grade Language Arts to teaching 6th grade Science and Language Arts. The day was looking up when he walks into his new classroom to find a smoking hot student teacher, only to realize that it was none other than Roxie Ra

Started reading this and I expected a fluffy or steamy insta-love read. Heck no. It exceeded my expectations lol

The depth and issues it covered made this so meaningful. As an aspiring teacher, it was awesome reading something besides a research articles that tacked kid's behavior and motivators in school. Srsly tho I love this book.

“Am I falling for Mr. Slater?? Surely not.”

This book is the epitome of love/hate!
Oh my gee! I can’t get enough of Jack Slater and Roxie (with an I-E) Rambling!!!!

I enjoyed every twist and turn this story took! The history behind the main characters and the reason they loathe each other. The immediate sexual tension when they first see each, not knowing who the other really is. So good!

I sat down to read this for review, giving myself several days to finish the book but I couldn’t put it down, and finished in in just a few hours. In a typical KD fashion, this story is witty, engaging, and amazing. Jake Slater is an outright douche, very similar to the obnoxiously lovable Schmidt from the show New Girl. While Mr. Slater is an asshat, you see wary flecks of decency in there that make you root for him instead of hate him. Overtime, as he lusts after Roxie you see more of him, les ...more

I'm a sucker for forbidden/taboo romances. This one had it all in Spades. Roxie and Jack are quite a dynamic duo. I truly enjoyed their story.

This is the first title I have read by this author so I didn't know what to expect. I was surprised to see it was much better than I thought after reading what this book was about. I absolutely loved Mr. Slater and Roxie! I can't wait to read more by this author in the future!

I am rating this 4 1/2 stars but because of goodreads decision to not have half stars, I round up.

I was fortunate enough to get an advanced copy of this book and boy was I excited! Kendall Day (Grey) writes hilarious romances with some very steamy sex scenes. When I read her description of the book, I'll admit, I was a little hesitant but I am glad that I picked it up and read it.

I really wasn't sure what to expect. But I really fell in love with all of the characters. Roxie (with an ie) is hi

I really enjoyed reading Falling for Mr. Slater. I thought it had a unique story line, different than other teacher/student books I have read. The characters were well written. Mr. Slater (Jack) was a real jerk at the beginning. Roxie Rambling was his former student, one he considered his worst. Now years later, Roxie becomes his student teacher. How ironic is that? Well, turns out Roxie ends up teaching Mr. Slater. She shows him different ways to approach students that he formally would’ve writ ...more

Seriously, where were the Mr. Slater’s at when I was in school? I completely recommend this book if you want a hot, funny read. It all starts off when Jack Slater underestimates Roxie, with an I-E , Rambling When she is his problem student in school. A handful of years later, Roxie shows back up in his life as his student teacher. What could possibly go wrong? Everything! Or did it actually go right?

I first started reading this author from a series under the name Kendall Grey. Loved her words, she had a few books out in a series but I couldn't find a readers group for her on facebook but I started getting her newsletter and I am so happy to have found her. She totally writes things that are just my style, pace, and humor. She's given her heroes and heroines wit, sarcasm, and enviable hotness. Its the PERFECT escape for a weekend.

I had the honour of reviving an ARC for this book.

With in the first few pages I was hooked though I will say it should come with a few warnings to the reader first off place your e reader down when slater does a douce canoe move so you won’t break it. As well food and drink are not recommended when reading don’t want you to choke or spit what your drinking (especially if its of the vodka variety that’s just alcohol abuse 😉)

I was looking forward to reading Falling for Mr. Slater, a different take on a student/teacher romance.

I almost stopped reading it, but it wasn't until about 50% into it that it started getting GOOD. I applaud the author for the different take on one of my favorite troupes, but I couldn't get past a few things. The characters acted really immature for being 30+ years old. Also, for someone not being a big fan of hashtags, those were starting to drive me crazy with his often they were used. Once

I had high hopes for this book. I am a huge Student Teacher Forbidden Romance fan and I wanted this book to be different and amazing.

I had trouble connecting with the characters. Their interactions with each other didn’t resemble a transforming budding romance.. snarky is more like it.

I was looking for more romance after they reunited and I found that lacked for me.
