Hiya! Happy Easter! Hope you all continue to be well. Life is certainly different these days. The things I miss the most are playing and watching sports, teaching in the traditional face-to-face sense, and having my groceries professionally bagged. I swear, it’s like a science experiment gone wrong when I bring my self-packed bags home and try to sort through the wreckage. Anybody else? Just me? 😀 Let’s turn it over to Will and Becks for a new snippet from Learning to Love!
Continuing from where we left off…
And for one brief moment, she gave in. She surrendered. She stopped thinking about the damn consequences and listened only to her heart.
This is a really bad idea, her brain blurted one last protest before she stood on her tiptoes. “Oh, shut up,” she murmured.
“Huh?” Will gasped, but she silenced him with her lips. On his lips. The gentle pressure she applied wasn’t enough—not nearly enough. He must have agreed because her back hit the wall and she moaned as his tongue entered her mouth. Warm, wet, oh-so-welcoming heat flooded her body as they effortlessly fell into a give and take that took her breath away.
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?
