Hello, hello! Happy Sunday! It’s time for me to share another snippet from Learning to Love, so get ready…’cause here it comes!
Continuing from where we left off…
He dodged the flying object at the last second, laughing as he closed the door behind him. The box fell to the floor with a thunk, and then the room was blanketed in silence, save for the rapid thrum of her heart.
Rebecca wiped her mouth, horrified by the gob of hummus the tissue collected. She might have noticed she was wearing half her lunch on her face if he hadn’t come in there looking all…older than she expected. He had to be in his late twenties. Maybe even early thirties. Tall, insanely handsome. Soon to be working in very close quarters with her for the next fifteen weeks.
And completely off-limits.
Sighing in frustration, she collected the remains of her lunch and threw it in the fridge, grabbed her whistle, and headed for the gym.
Here’s the blurb:
Rebecca Ledgerwood is a physical education teacher who’s ready to invest some sweat equity into a lasting romance. On a whim, she has her palm read before summer vacation ends, and she’s told she’s an old soul who’ll find happiness with a younger man.
William Whitney leaves an unfulfilling career to pursue teaching and gets placed at Rebecca’s school for his physical education practicum. He’s desperate to make a difference, convinced that the choices he made in the past contributed to his younger sister’s death. Kendal High School is nothing like the prep school he attended as a teenager, but he’s determined to make the most of his time there, especially if it makes Rebecca notice him.
Though they come from vastly different backgrounds, there’s an undeniable chemistry that sparks between the two. They resist, as they must, until his practicum ends, but when he’s offered a teaching position at his former prep school, will he take the easy way out, or fight for what’s right in front of him?
Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors!
Well, this week has had its ups and downs. I’m still trying to find my groove at my new school and connect with my students. Some days it feels like I’ve got ’em, and others…Let’s just say, my chocolate consumption has increased ten fold. If my job was easy every day, the good days wouldn’t feel nearly as rewarding. So, yeah. Teachers are sadistic like that. 😉 Enjoy your weekend, my friends, and I wish you a wonderful week ahead, too! 🙂
