My review (amazon link)
This book was a breath of fresh air in the ordinary student/ teacher genre – where you’re lust is the main focus and after a few complications then you get a happily-ever-after. There was so much more to this story.
Halston is your no-nonsense girl, that may be perceived like a bitch – but she is only like that because of her childhood. Even in her “new” family she is walking on glass just to get through high school. She didn’t pity herself or tried to be different in her new surroundings, she stayed true to who she was and she worked hard.
My only “problem” with this book was that I wanted them to have more time together. They were connected perfectly online and their chemistry in person was undeniable but I felt like they could’ve had more time instead of just stolen words and miscommunications.
If you’re a fan of student/ teacher romance, I think you’re going to like this one. It’s certainly different from what I’ve read before and I liked that. Change is good sometimes.
I received an ARC and I am leaving a voluntary review, but everything I write is my own opinion.
Blurb: (from Goodreads)
The name on the screen was “Absinthe.”
I knew her as the sultry voice blowing up my phone for late night chats about Proust and Hemingway interspersed between the best phone sex I never knew I could have.
We’d never met.
Until the day she walked into my office, her cherry lips wrapped around a candy apple sucker and an all too familiar voice that said, “They said you wanted to see me, Principal Hawthorne?”
