I KNEW HE WOULD RUIN ME FROM THE MOMENT WE MET. Everything about the man screamed confidence. Sensuality. Intelligence. Worldliness. But it was how he saved me that ruined me most.   

 Through him, I learned to end my path of self-destruction. I no longer needed to numb the pain with mindless one-night-stands and drunken blackouts. He made me feel worthy. Treasured. Optimistic about my future.   

 Here I stand four years later, in a coffee shop a world away, still broken…but beautifully so. My scars no longer hold me back. Instead, they give me strength and enrich my appreciation for the good things in life. I have hopes and dreams…faith that anything is possible. I am no longer the lost little girl fighting for survival. I have direction. I have courage. I am not without possibility.   

 I’ll always have Gavin to thank for that—Mr. Cooper, I remind myself. That’s who he is to me now: just a former teacher. I know what you’re thinking, but don’t worry. I was eighteen when we first met. Legally, we did nothing wrong. Morally? Well, I guess that depends on how flexible your morals are.   
 My name is Kat and this is my story.

The title of this book drew me in like a moth to the flames and then the blurb just called to me.  I love reading student/teacher books; the naughtiness of it just makes me feel kind of giddy.  But this is different than most.  It was less naughty and more gut wrenching.  There’s still the taboo but there is a whole other layer to the story.

Kat has built up a tough outer skin; she’s got this persona that she dons like a mask and an impenetrable wall that she doesn’t let anyone through.    She’s fierce but underneath it all she’s scarred and she’s broken.  Gavin has been able to break through it all.  He’s sweet, caring and tender.  And he’s joined the list of some of my favorite book boyfriends.  On paper they don’t seem to work well.  But oh, the chemistry between them is ignitable.  They get in a room together and it just combusts.

This story is heavy with emotion and angst.  Kat has a tragic backstory.  I highly recommend reading with a box of tissues nearby.  There were times when I smiled, times when I giggled, times when I fanned myself but oh did I cry.  It was definitely darker then I was expecting when I read the blurb but not a dark romance by any means.  Just be prepared for some topics that aren’t easy to swallow.

If you like stories of triumph over tragedy then pick this up.  This is one that’ll stick with you.  -Peace and love, Buxom J


  About Laura Lee:   

 After working a 9-to-5 gig for many years, she happily traded it for a rewarding career as a self-published author. Laura is the author of the bestselling Karli Lane and Dealing with Love series. She is a proud member of the Romance Writers of America focusing on contemporary, urban fantasy, and paranormal romance.   

 Laura's passion has always been storytelling. She spent most of her life with her nose in a book thinking of alternate endings or continuations to the story. She won her first writing contest at the ripe old age of nine, earning a trip to the state capital to showcase her manuscript. Thankfully for her, those early works will never see the light of day again!   

 Laura lives in the Pacific Northwest with her wonderful husband, two beautiful children, and three of the most poorly behaved cats in existence. She likes her fruit smoothies filled with rum, her cupboards stocked with Cadbury's chocolate, and her music turned up loud. When she's not writing or watching HGTV, she's reading anything she can get her hands on. She's a sucker for spicy romances, especially those involving vampires or cowboys!
