Book Review (293): Always You - Missy Johnson

Always You

Publication: 17th December 2013
Publisher: Self Published
Pages: 253
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age Appropriate: New Adult
I was thrilled when I was offered a graduate teaching position at the prestigious Tennerson Girls Academy. At twenty-three, this would be my first ‘real’ teaching assignment. Working at the elite boarding school, home to the daughters of some of the wealthiest people in the world, was a great opportunity that I would’ve been stupid to pass up. 

One week into my new job, and I suddenly had no idea why I chose high school…I was a seventeen year old boy once, I knew how teenage girls behaved. 

You can’t even imagine the hell of trying to teach thirty, hormonal driven seventeen year olds who have been cooped up, away from any male contact. 

I could handle the whispers every time I entered the room. I could even handle the obvious attempts at gaining my attention. What I couldn’t handle was her… 

Rich bitches and way too many rules. Was it any wonder that I hated school? 

Add to that the lack of male contact, and I was going insane. Like literally. I wasn’t used to this. A year ago I was normal. I had a boyfriend, friends and a loving family. There is nothing normal about me anymore, and nobody here lets me forget that. 

My name is Wrenn, and I’m only here because my aunt took me in after what happened, but my aunt also happens to be the headmistress of this academy…Can you see my problem? 

I’m hated for my lack of money, and I’m hated for who my Aunt is. 

Then he arrived. Dalton Reed. My new history teacher. 

Slowly, he helped me see that even in the worst situations, there is always hope.
My Thoughts.
I loooved this book!

This book was so amazing, easily one of my favourite new adult contemporary romances, what I loved most was the fact that it wasn't your ordinary happily ever after, and because of that it felt so real and different from most others out there.

I've always been intrigued by student/teacher romances, probably a sense of the forbidden that keeps  my curiosity piqued and this is a fantastic one.

When sexy and gorgeous Dalton starts a new job as a History teacher at an all girls school he has no idea what he's getting himself into, with a betting pool going around with the first girl to kiss Dalton to win a thousand dollars he's very popular indeed.

When he sees Wrenn in class he's immediately drawn to her with the feeling that he knows her from somewhere, she's not like the other girls who throw themselves at him and they slowly develop a friendship that turns into a forbidden relationship that neither one nor the other wants to have end.

When Wrenn discovers the secret that Dalton has been hiding ,will it tear them apart for good and end the relationship before it's really even started?

Such a well written story with well developed characters and a great plot, I read this in one sitting such a fast and quick read, I couldn't get through the pages fast enough.

This was the first book of Missy's that I've ever read but it most certainly won't be the last.

Highly recommended!

I give this 5/5 stars.
