Teach Me to Love

My Review

Teach Me To Love (Teach Me, #2)Teach Me To Love by Alannah Carbonneau

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

NOTE: Although this book is about a different couple in this series. I highly recommend you first read Teach Me to Live (Teach Me – Book 1) Teach Me To Live. You need to learn the beauty and the essence of Austin and how he affected all the characters. Now having said that, here goes my review.

Teach Me To Love is book 2 of the Teach Me series. The story of Kaiden and Raina; they grew up together, their mothers were best friends. They were best friends and although unspoken, their feelings for each other went deeper. But, sometimes life has other plans. After an event that affected his life deeply, Kaiden goes on a journey throughout Europe to heal and to find himself. He disappears for 9 months without any communication with Raina. Then one day he comes back. A changed man and ready to start living and loving. This is a beautiful and very sweet friends to lover summer romance. Kaiden has to proof himself worthy of loving Raina and of loving himself.

Kaiden had built a wall around himself and did not let others in. He was a “man whore” with a different girl everyday. No attachments. Raina is a free spirit. A lover of nature. They always had feelings for each other, but they never crossed the line. Kaiden’s actions hurt Raina, but she treasured their friendship and never spoke of her feelings.

This story is about two souls finding each other and opening up to love. Made my heart happy and I shed some tears. But, it’s a beautiful story.

One of my favorite scenes:

“I don’t think there was a day I didn’t want you since I fell in love with you.”
“When did you fall?”
“Years ago.”
“Beautiful, I have years to make up for.”
“You don’t. This is where we were always supposed to be-this moment, right here beneath these stars is where we were always meant to begin. Please don’t take that away from us with regrets for the past. Everything we were has led us here-and I wouldn’t trade this moment for the world.”

Fading Memories
by A.M. Willard
Release Blitz
Contemporary Inspirational Romance

 

Synopsis
 
Isabel Nichols’s life
changed in more ways than one through the years. As a young child, she
experienced a loss that devastated her. It wasn’t until she was an adult that
the universe around her shattered. In a twenty-four-hour time frame, she lost
what she’d thought was her world. What followed was a year of mourning, a year
of grieving, a year of darkness. Now, there’s one man who can show her the
light.
 
Dakota Jackson left his
life behind on a whim, moving to a beach cottage away from the big city where
he grew up. He sees through Izzie’s clouds as he gets to know her, with the
drive to be everything that she’s ever needed. The only problem is, Dakota
holds the key to a secret that could ruin both of their hopes and dreams.
 
Passion isn’t always
enough to heal a broken heart; love isn’t always enough to guide you through
the darkness.
 
This is about two souls
that were meant to be together from the day they were born. Two people who have
to figure out a way to look past the memories. It’s the now; it’s living your
life as you’re meant to, loving the one your heart craves. It’s about letting
go of the grieving, learning to be who you are, and accepting life for what it
is.
 
Can
love cure all things despite its hardships?
 
Endorsement
“A.M.
Willard has the combination to unlock your heart. This is a elegantly written
book and an emotional journey that I highly recommend reading.” Author Addison
Kline.
Excerpt
Dakota
has positioned me over his leg as he moves us as one to the words. The gentle
sway back and forth and steady dips have ignited my core. It’s not just the
words being sung, it’s his touch, and the way he’s staring into my eyes. The
song I’ve loved for years is becoming something that is my life. He’s the one
who not only turns me on, but can turn me off in a split second. No one has
ever been able to cause the surge of emotions within me like he has in this
short time. The song ends just as he brings me up to his chest allowing out
foreheads to touch. My heart is beating so hard against my chest that it feels
like it’s going to jump out and into his. I know he hears the fast pace of my
breathing, just as I can hear his.

The Duality Principle

I just finished reading this book and it's a definite MUST READ!! It is light, fun and with a bit of steam!

The Duality Principle

Sometimes A + B = O. Yes. Oh, yes. Just like that.

Gabriella Evans’s life exists in terms of logic and definitions. She’s holed up in Portland, Maine, for the summer to work on her PhD thesis, but something is screwing up her concentration: the rumble of a motorcycle every time the embodiment of her rough-and-tumble fantasies rides down her street.

When her best friend talks her into a blind date, she finds herself out with the opposite of her fantasy. He’s polite and well-mannered, yet something behind his crisply tailored shirt doesn’t add up—a rebellious gleam in his eye that piques her curiosity.

Orphaned at fifteen, Connor Starks has finally put the years of failing grades, breaking laws and breaking hearts behind him. The only holdover? His penchant for getting down and dirty in public places. But Gabriella makes him want to prove he’s become a better man.

Nothing intrigues Gabriella more than a problem she can’t solve. But the more Connor tries to bury his past, the more determined she is to uncover it. And what she finds makes all her trusty logic begin to fail her…

Warning: This book contains a summer romance, dirty talk, dockside kissing, motorcycles and tattoos. Features a rebellious nerdy girl with an appetite for outdoor sex and light spanking, and a bad boy who’s turned good…or at least he’s trying.

MY REVIEW
Neon

I loved and enjoyed this book; it’s a fun, sexy read. I finished reading it last night and I’ve gone back several times to read different sections that I totally love! It is one of those books that you keep thinking about after you read it and the scenes play out in your head, bringing a smile to your lips.

Gabriella Evans is smart, blond, nerdy, logical and pretty. She is attending M.I.T. working on her PhD in mathematics. But, there is a side of Gabriella that nobody seems to know or understand. She keeps this side hidden and bottled up. She wants to explore and bring out her naughty side, the rebel with a piercing, a tattoo, and lusting after a bad boy on a motorcycle. Her hidden side wants wild sex, dirty talk, spanking, hair pulling; and to have fun in a public place. She hasn’t been able to find a man that can enjoy or bring out her hidden side; a man that can make her lose control.

Connor Starks is tall, brown hair, blue eyes; with curly chin length hair. This bad boy is trying hard to be good. He wants his past to stay in the past. He feels he needs to hide his bad boy side. After meeting Gabriella, he feels that the only way he can be with her is by being a good guy, a gentleman.

This is a beautiful story of 2 people trying to be true to themselves, but end up hiding for fear of rejection. Sometimes others see us for who we are; better than we see ourselves. Gabriella’s friend, Jamie, sets her up with Connor. As you read the story you will find out why. Connor’s grandmother lets him know it’s OK to be yourself, especially with the right person. Rebecca Grace Allen does a fantastic job writing this story; it engages you from the beginning. I loved all the characters and I definitely loved the Principle of Duality, the naughty and nice! I would love to read more of Gabby and Connor.
