Almost Eighteen by Gretchen de la O
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Close your eyes and remember what it was like to have your very first schoolgirl crush on your hot young teacher. Having trouble? No worries, Wilson Mooney can help take you back to those glorious days, but the difference is that Ms. Wilson Mooney was actually fortunate enough to have a little taste of her hunky teacher.
❝They always say teachers shouldn’t touch their students. What a heap of steaming crap. Please, touch me all you want. How do you think he kept me coming back to my government class?❞
Every girl needs a little incentive to keep her going back to those boring old government classes – the educators of the world would do well to write this down: EYE CANDY MAKES CLASS
INFINITELY MORE INTERESTING! Especially the boring ones…
ALMOST EIGHTEEN captured my interest immediately! The story contains elements that can generally lure me in, like forbidden love, a wounded main character and a virginal heroine, but the dynamic characters and amusing story are what HELD my attention.
Our heroine, Wilson is the quintessential innocent, teenaged girl, but nicer. She has had a lot to deal with in her relatively short life, so the fact that she still has a positive outlook on life is amazing in and of itself. The only thing that keeps her going back to her government class is her sexy, young teacher, Max Goldstein. Wilson basically spends her days (and nights) fantasizing about Max… err… Mr. Goldstein. So imagine her delight when she discovers that she and Mr. Goldstein will be in Aspen on the same weekend – of course, she can only dream that their paths will cross. Ha! She has no clue that her fantasy is about to become reality!
I loved Max, but the adult in me wanted to slap him upside the head for putting himself in such a predicament to begin with – GAH! Men and their penises can be so stupid!! I wanted to scream: KEEP IT IN YOUR PANTS – HELL-O STATUTORY RAPE! On the other hand, the teenaged girl in me wanted him to quit messing around and to just rip those fucking panties off already!
Max was in a no-win situation. Damned if he does it and damned if he doesn’t.
I loved this book and I've GOT to see what happens next, so, I'm jumping straight into the next book, EIGHTEEN AT LAST, because Dammit! My name is I ♥ Bookie Nookie and I'm jonesing for some of that barely-legal, cherry-poppin’ action!
P.S. Love the cover – I am a big fan of butterflies & the kissing faces (yes, go ahead & go check out the cover again, it took me a minute too) are sheer genius ☺
