I loved the story of something tragic holding back Alex from properly living her life, and while I sympathise with her, this is a big part of the story. Thankfully she has help to pull herself out of herself, and help with the path to a better future.
Well written, and lovely story. - Goodreads
Book 1 in the Lessons in Love
The Lessons in Love series follows the story of high school cheerleader Alex Heron. She's pretty, blonde and popular. Alex seems to have it all, but she's hiding a dark secret from her past that threatens to destroy her future. Only the handsome new math teacher, Mark Simmons, can see past Alex's façade to the real girl hiding inside. He wants to help Alex overcome her past, but will their developing feelings for each other get in the way?
In full disclosure I have to say usually books like this where there is a romance between a teacher and a student usually turn me off but I found myself absolutely loving this story. The romance was done in such a respectful way that I have to applaud the author. I really enjoyed this book because it shows how easily your life can change from one extreme to another. How in a blink of an eye it can all change. - Goodreads
I have been an avid reader and and writer since my earliest school days. Reading was my first and earliest passions, often seeking the safe sanctuary of my room or the library to read everything I could. My favorite has been romance. I penned some romantic poetry in high school and was winning school awards for my short stories when I was just 16. In college I would hibernate in the library for days at a time, consuming every short story and novel I could find. My diploma says Bachelors in English Lit. which I'm very proud of.
I probably drink too much coffee and eat too much junk food, but to compensate do like running when the weather is nice. I love shopping in the mall even if I never find what I'm looking for. I'm a hopeful romantic who prefers novels with a happy ending.
