ARC: Hard to Handle - RC Boldt (Teach Me #2)

Published Date: February 2, 2016
Genre: Romance
Synopsis: 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.

Until Zach.

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?

When I first met Laney in the first of the Teach Me series, I just fell in love with her total cupid attitude except when it comes her animosity towards Zach. Actually, when it came towards her animosity towards men in general. What are you going to do?

Laney broke my heart and as the story progressed, you just kind of had to understand the reason why she alienated all men from her life. However, the only person, thought the vain of her existence, Zachariah Mayson, has wormed his way into her heart.

The question is will she be able to survive what is thrown at her.

This book was a page-turner and unable to put the book down. Now that i started school again, I read during class and everything. But it was a beautiful love story. Not one of those instal-love things but with this, there is history and much love within the books. 

You can add Zachariah Mayson onto my book boyfriends list, right next to Callum Mackenzie. Jesus. One of these days, I will need to just list all of my favorite book friends into a list. 

I definitely wanted to slap the shite out of characters especially since they act all high and mighty because they are nouveux riche. You feel? The only actual older adult that I loved was Momma K. She's a strong fighter and the definition of an independent woman.

However, since the story focuses on Laney and Zach, you're kind of forced into rooting for them and maybe tossing your kindle or paperback everywhere. Yeah... Just imagine me. I rate this a great 4.3 out of 5 stars. 

Blog you later, awesome book nerds.
