This book had tremendous potential. Maybe because it was short it didn't get to live up to it? I'm not sure. But I definitely liked the concept of the story. I'm not a huge fan of teacher-student romances (I'm a mom of girls!), however, if the student is at the age of consent, I have no worries. And this wasn't even the typical taboo story anyway.

This story is about a teacher (Reed) and a student (Auburn) who, in high school, had a platonic but deep connection through writing. They just clicked. But Reed didn't take it any further because of his respect for the rules and... oh yeah, dude was married. Actually he's married for pretty much most of the book lol. But fast forward 3 years after graduation and Auburn is home from college taking a summer school writing course. Guess who the teacher is??? Yup. Reed. Their connection is stronger than ever and is NO LONGER PLATONIC!! Get ready for some chemistry.

It's a quick read, the storyline doesn't feel that rushed even though it is, and I really liked it. My eyes stung at some parts (I'm not spoiling the plot for anyone) so you know the read was decent. Enjoy!
