Hey, word nerds! Here we are again, another Sunday and another snippet from yours truly. Ready for more from Learning to Love? Read on!
Continuing from where we left off…
“Miss Ledgerwood!” Jenna, the shrieker, shrieked. “Oh, my God, can’t a person get any privacy? This is the girls’ washroom. Don’t you have some fancy one in the teachers’ lounge?”
“I appreciate the warm welcome,” Rebecca said dryly. “I just came by to check on you after I heard the screaming….”
Jenna lowered her gaze. “As you can clearly see, I’m a mess.”
“Jenna,” she began, giving the girl a sympathetic smile, “I’m sure Ryley would agree, you’re a knockout even with raccoon eyes and snot running from your nose.”
Ryley nodded. “It’s actually annoying how hot you still look.”
***End of WWW post, but carry on to finish this sequence.***
“I’m a hot mess!” Jenna cried.
Rebecca bent down to gather some of the discarded tissues. “I’m guessing this has something to do with Josh?” she inquired as she disposed of the tangled clump.
“The dickless idiot broke up with her,” Ryley chimed in. “I mean…” She paused, as if remembering she was speaking to an authority figure and not a contemporary, then grimaced. “Sorry, not sorry.”
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?
