Love Lessons 1 & 2 series by Heidi Cullinan


Book 1


Love doesn’t come with a syllabus.

Kelly Davidson has waited what seems like forever to graduate high school and get out of his small-minded, small town. But when he arrives at Hope University, he quickly realizes finding his Prince Charming isn’t so easy. Everyone here is already out. In fact, Kelly could be the only virgin on campus.

Worst of all, he’s landed the charming, handsome, gay campus Casanova as a roommate, whose bed might as well be equipped with a revolving door.

Walter Lucas doesn’t believe in storybook love. Everyone is better off having as much fun as possible with as many people as possible…except his shy, sad little sack of a roommate is seriously screwing up his world view.

As Walter sets out to lure Kelly out of his shell, staying just friends is harder than he anticipated. He discovers love is a crash course in determination. To make the grade, he’ll have to finally show up for class…and overcome his own private fear that love was never meant to last.

Warning: This story contains lingering glances, milder than usual sexual content for this author, and a steamy dance-floor kiss. Story has no dairy or egg content, but may contain almonds.

Book 2


Sometimes you have to play love by ear.

Aaron Seavers is a pathetic mess, and he knows it. He lives in terror of incurring his father’s wrath and disappointing his mother, and he can’t stop dithering about where to go to college—with fall term only weeks away. Ditched by a friend at a miserable summer farewell party, all he can do is get drunk in the laundry room and regret he was ever born. Until a geeky-cute classmate lifts his spirits, leaving him confident of two things: his sexual orientation, and where he’s headed to school.
Giles Mulder can’t wait to get the hell out of Oak Grove, Minnesota, and off to college, where he plans to play his violin and figure out what he wants to be when he grows up. But when Aaron appears on campus, memories of hometown hazing threaten what he’d hoped would be his haven. As the semester wears on, their attraction crescendos from double-cautious to a rich, swelling chord. But if more than one set of controlling parents have their way, the music of their love could come to a shattering end.

Warning: Contains showmances, bad parenting, Walter Lucas, and a cappella.

Mare's Review


My 2nd and 3rd read of 2015.

While it didn’t start off the bang that I wanted, these books so so made up for that fact.

God, I hate it when no books work for me, when I start DNFing at the 10 page mark, when I roll my eyes, skim, scroll my e reader for another book because seriously there’s got to be something better out there right? right! And inadvertently I found the Love Lessons series through 1 of my internet boo’s Kristie.

She says “Oh Mare these books are good”

I trust her, so I try….

And I get sucked into this world full of Disney cheer, and laughter, and such oowey gooey sweetness that it is coming out of my pores! And its not cheesy sweetness, cause you know, I cant stand cheesy sweetness. There is sexual tension woven into 50% of the book that I thought I might get asphyxiated by it.

And the moments were tender and sweet and just so so right.

Book 1 was a little treasure in the sea of bullcrap.

And I finish it and am lost in this sweet essence that just engulfed me!

Now on to book 2, expecting the same oowey gooey sweet stuff………..

Boy I was never ever so wrong.

What I got was 270 pages of….



Hot sex. OMG. From the get go… the sex was just…. out of the stratosphere HOTT.

Bible thumpers

Douchebag dads

crazy ass mom’s

Supportive loving parents and friends



WTF. Did that just happen? Seriously?

And I got

Ready for it?


I got ELIJAH!!!!!!! Elijah who is a side character from the main ones, but the 1 I feel for. Hook. Line. Sinker

He stole the show, I love him. I want him. And his book is coming


In August


So far. So far away. So so so far away.

GAH. The wait is going to be torture, and not sweet torture at that.

I do believe that book 3 will be the most epic one of them all. Because


Thanks to Kristie and Susan for understanding my hype through all the tweets.

And for keeping it together because they knew what was coming and didnt spoil that shit once for me!
