Release Day ARC Review: Teaching Ben by Shae Connor
Teaching Ben (Dreamspun Desires Book 52) - Shae Connor

Ben Cooper put in his time with the military, but at 24 is now looking for a fresh start, using his GI bill to attend college in Savannah, GA. And finally step out of the closet. 

David Powell is a TA in Ben's class, same age as Ben, but obviously off-limits due to his status. David also had some struggles in his past, but has tried hard to stay away from temptation and stay the course. 

The attraction is immediate, but neither can act on it, thus there is lots of UST in this book, and the romance is super slow burn. David and Ben become friends, and as they learn more about each other, and secrets are revealed, their friendship, while platonic, becomes even stronger. 

I liked how the author gave Ben room to expand his horizons, how she let him spread his wings, away from his commandeering father, away from the rigors and structure of the Air Force, building the life he wants to live. 

David made a huge mistake once and it cost him dearly. He's making up for it, but he also knows that he cannot step a single foot out of line, no matter how attracted he is to Ben. The author did a fine job fleshing out his character and giving him a background story that felt realistic and believable in how much it still impacted his life. 

Told alternatively from Ben's and David's point-of-view, we get a well-rounded story with a believable plot that even had a bit of suspense, though the villain of the story was rather clear from the get-go and the suspense was more in how this particular piece of the plot would unfold and impact their budding relationship. 

As with all the books in this series, there is little explicit steam on page, which is fine as far as I'm concerned. I much rather read about the relationship development, and how the two MCs get to their HEA than about what they do in the bedroom. I much rather see an emotional connection develop more so that a romp in the sheets, and I got that here. Ben and David really clicked, like they were meant to find each other, with both of them having had to struggle to get to this point in their lives, which meant that they were more aware of what they found and thus more protective of it. 

I enjoyed reading this. 


** I received a free copy of this book from its publisher in exchange for an honest review. **

Simple
Wrapped Up In You - Ella Frank,Brooke Blaine

Carter loves the holidays.  His partner is a doctor, and worked straight through.  So he gets one heck of a surprise for Valentine's Day.

 

Vaughn has wanted to show Carter how much he cares.  This was just a simple way to show how much there is between them.  A way to show he is always on his mind.

 

This was a short and sweet story about real love that overcomes obstacles.  The characters bring much heat and adoration to each page.  I loved the sincerity that came across.  This author combo is always a must click for me, and this proved why.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Clifford's Teacher's Pets - Norman Bridwell
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

This is an adaption of an episode from the TV series. 

A cute story with a very nice ending. I liked the moral at the end of the story about trying your hardest and doing the best you can. 

Simple story that is a bit repetitive, but still a good read.
