Book 1 in the Lessons in Love New Adult / Coming of Age Romance series
Alex Herron has more secrets than a cat has lives. Keeping up with the charade that's her life is draining and her façade is cracking under the stress. She's the American teen dream—blonde, blue-eyed and head cheerleader at her high school, but no one knows the real Alex…and she plans to keep it that way. The truth would make her an instant outcast. Enter Mark Simmons, the new math teacher. With a body to die for and a face that makes every girl swoon, Alex is no exception…until she realizes she opens up to him more than anyone else in her life. Even her best friend, Claire.
Mark knows his attraction to Alex is dangerous for both of them. He tries to tell himself he only wants to help her turn her grades and her life around. But the intense tutoring sessions only bring them closer. He can't deny his feelings any more than Alex can. Though he hasn't the strength to stop seeing Alex, he's glad she does. They can only be teacher and student. No intimate dates. No long talks. No longing looks. And it's killing him. But when she has the chance to go to Princeton, Mark realizes he must let her go…even if it breaks their hearts.
LESSONS IN LOVE is the touching story of two people who fall in love at the wrong time, in the wrong place, but make the ultimate sacrifice and do the right thing.
