Hiiiiiiiiii! I’m finally back! I woulda been back a whole week ago, but I got the flu and it sucked the life outta me and forced me to sleep through my entire weekend, making me think that Monday was Friday and Friday was Monday! It was madness, I tell you! Anywho, I’m here to share a new snippet from Learning to Love, so let’s hop to it! 🙂
Continuing from where we left off…
“I feel like I’m back in high school.”
She cocked her head and laughed, the light and airy sound washing over him like a gentle breeze. “You are.”
“No, I just mean…I’m starving. My mom could never keep food in the house when we were growing up. Something about being inside these walls is reverting me back to my teenage self, I guess.”
“Ahh, I see.” She took another bite of her cookie and washed it down with a swig of juice. “God, I don’t miss those years,” she murmured.
“The awkwardness, the hormones, trying to fit in while simultaneously wishing you were invisible….”
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?

I had an amazing holiday with my family, and now that I’m over the flu, I plan on bringing the merry back to my January! I have one more week left of teaching for the first semester, then we’re into exams. Can’t believe how fast the school year is flying by, but that just means summer will be here sooner! Wooot! Bring on the heat! 😀 Happy writing, my friends, and I’ll see you next week! xo
