I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Thirty-three, single, and loving life.
Construction worker by day and playboy by night. Kegan Cole has what many men can only dream about. A great job, incredible family, and more women fawning over him than he can count. What more could he ask for?
Lexi Carter spends her days teaching at a private school. Struggling to rebuild her life after tragedy nearly destroyed her, she doesn’t have the time or energy to invest in any arrangement that could lead to heartbreak. That includes the enigmatic Kegan Cole whose arrogance and sex appeal arrive long before he enters a room.
It doesn’t matter how witty, charming, and incredibly sexy he is. She plays games all day with her students and has no room in her life for games when it comes to men, and Kegan Cole has 'love them and leave' them written all over his handsome bearded face.
When Lexi doesn’t fall at his feet like every other woman before her, Kegan is forced off-script to pursue her because not convincing her to give in isn’t an option.
How can a man who hates lies be compatible with a woman who has more secrets than she can count?
Can a man set in his playboy ways become the man Lexi needs? More importantly, does he even want to?
Teach Me Like That is the second book in the Love Me Like That series. They are standalone stories but with interconnecting characters and there are definite spoilers to Love Me Like a That, the first book in this series which features Kadin the brother to our hero, Kegan.
Kegan is enthralled and it is lust at first sight when he brings his nieces to school and meets their teacher, Lexi Carter.
“I cut my eyes toward the sorceress, prepared to ask for her spell book and stop in my tracks. Piercing green eyes, surrounded by more dark hair than you’d see in an expensive shampoo commercial, look over at me as the door slams behind me. I’m so enchanted by her attention toward me that I released my hold on the door. The sound rings through the quiet classroom and echoes off the walls, breaking the trance she’s holding me under. I blink several times, unsure if I lost seconds or entire days.”
Kegan has always been a bit of a manwhore, able to just snap his fingers and the women flock to him. He is put off his game when good-girl, Lexi tries to resist his charm.
This book was lighter on the angst than the previous one, but still had plenty of feels and lots of heart- racing moments. It was a great blend of sweet and heat.
“Her eyes are expectant, loving, and full of hope. For the first time in my life, I find myself wanting to be everything a woman hopes I can be.”
Marie James has become a definite one-click, must- read author for me!
