I was thrilled when I was offered a graduate teaching position at the prestigious Tennerson Girls Academy. At twenty-three, this would be my first ‘real’ teaching assignment. Working at the elite boarding school, home to the daughters of some of the wealthiest people in the world, was a great opportunity that I would’ve been stupid to pass up.
One week into my new job, and I suddenly had no idea why I chose high school…I was a seventeen year old boy once, I knew how teenage girls behaved.
You can’t even imagine the hell of trying to teach thirty, hormonal driven seventeen year olds who have been cooped up, away from any male contact.
I could handle the whispers every time I entered the room. I could even handle the obvious attempts at gaining my attention. What I couldn’t handle was her…
Rich bitches and way too many rules. Was it any wonder that I hated school?
Add to that the lack of male contact, and I was going insane. Like literally. I wasn’t used to this. A year ago I was normal. I had a boyfriend, friends and a loving family. There is nothing normal about me anymore, and nobody here lets me forget that.
My name is Wrenn, and I’m only here because my aunt took me in after what happened, but my aunt also happens to be the headmistress of this academy…Can you see my problem?
I’m hated for my lack of money, and I’m hated for who my Aunt is.
Then he arrived. Dalton Reed. My new history teacher.
Slowly, he helped me see that even in the worst situations, there is always hope.

I love a good student-teacher romance! While this is a well written story, it just wasn’t hot enough for me.
I didn’t fall in love with Dalton’s character, but he does have his moments.
I liked Wrenn, I feel for her, and I loved that she fought and never gave up on Dalton. Yes, though it sounded like she had selfish thoughts, I think that just makes her more realistic.
As for the romance factor, I liked that Wrenn and Dalton’s feelings developed gradually. As for the sex, not so much.
The story is light and simple with a little twists towards the end, though I did not feel any angst. All in all, it was alright.
~*~*~*~SILVANA’S REVIEW ~*~*~*~
This really wasn’t my cup of tea! It had so much potential to be a great book yet it wasn’t. I greatly enjoyed the start and the premise of the story, an all girl’s school and a hot young teacher however nothing much seemed to happen! The plot development was thin and I just didn’t feel the chemistry between Wrenn and Dalton. The sex scenes did not deliver for me, there was more sweet than sexy which many would love but not me.
For a story about forbidden romance, they didn’t seem to really care about being caught and thus the forbidden element that makes such books irresistible was not there. There was no angst which is usually a big plus for me but here I wanted to see more twists and turns, more drama, wanted them to work hard for their relationship.
This was a sweet, light and well written book, it just did not do it for me. I am sure others would enjoy it.
The only highlight was the ending, thought it was really cute and felt realistic but again it needed more development, everything felt rushed.
