For my third read of August, I picked up this eARC of Teach Me by Olivia Dade. I would like to start by saying what I disliked about this read: the cover. The story is good enough to warrant a better cover than this. I hope they scrap this design and work on a better one.

Now, for the book. I love that we have a curvy lead, but I did not like all of the depiction of character, especially having her being dressed in black all the time. Basically, she’s a great teacher with people who love her. There are many times that the book has highlighted her relatable characteristics, I just don’t get why her wearing black is so much of a big deal.

The romance in this book is a bit of a slow burn / mutual pining type. But, the rewards that you’ll get when they finally get it right are cute, fluffy, and steamy, too.

Our male lead is a cute geeky beta, with a lovable daughter. He has many redeemable characteristics, so I got a bit swoony there, to be honest.

All in all, I enjoyed the book, especially on the main character’s journey to confidence, self-love, and the freedom to love someone else.
