Book Description: The Teach Me series starts off with the story of Raine and Mac, the most unlikely of best friends…
Taken from his parents and bounced from one foster home to the next, former Navy SEAL turned math teacher, Callum “Mac” Mackenzie had a rough childhood. The only time he’s let himself get attached to anyone has been with his military “brothers”. He’s convinced he doesn’t know how to love and certainly doesn’t “do” relationships. He’s spent fourteen years in the Navy and now he gets to live out his other dream: teaching.
Her thirtieth birthday fast approaching, science teacher, Raine Thompson feels as if her time to find “the one” is running out. She knows life is short, especially after dealing with breast cancer two years ago, and wants to experience her own happily ever after. But is it in the cards for her?
Finally acting on the simmering attraction they have long ignored, Raine and Mac decide to have a fling and they discover what it’s like to have someone who knows you inside out also be the one who makes your body come alive.
But it was only temporary…
Maggie's Review: 4 Stars This book was really fun and flirty, but also had a more serious side - touching on grief and loss in an authentic way to make the reader feel involved with the characters. The author's personal note in the beginning only added to that authenticity. The dynamics of the friend group were also really well done; their humor and bantering back and forth cracked me up, but you also could appreciate the loyalty the group had for one another. Great characters, writing that flowed quickly (making it hard to put down), and props on the sexual tension and build-up. I'm interested to see what happens with book two!
Thanks to the author for providing the book in exchange for an honest review.
