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.
Music was part of my DNA, pumping hard through my veins, resonating deep within my bones. Not surprising, considering my dad was a global rock star and my mom had the voice of a fallen angel.
With my twin sister by my side in our indie-rock duo, Singed Wings, we were ready to finally see our name in lights when we opened for the hottest act to sell out stadiums ÔÇô JobuÔÇÖs Rum Summer Reunion Tour.
The life IÔÇÖd always wanted was finally within my reach. All I had left to do was finish out my last semester of high school.
But there was one problem: Ms. Sloan, the new art history teacher.
The same Ms. Sloan IÔÇÖd met as Belle, the sexy little pixie whoÔÇÖd captivated me at a New YearÔÇÖs Eve concert last year.
The same Ms. Sloan whoÔÇÖd owned nearly every one of my thoughts since that night.
The same Ms. Sloan whose class I was in danger of failing.
With my dream gig dangling just on the other side of that cap and gown, all of my focus shouldÔÇÖve been on my school work and improving my music as I prepared for my big shot to rock the worldÔÇª
But I never expected her to rock mine firstÔÇª and to change everything.
Everything is a standalone novel. It is a spin-off from the Book Boyfriend Series.
Meet Everett (A sexy rock star) who falls for Belle┬á(his new teacher), in this Rocker/Student/Teacher Romance.
EVERYTHING IS NOW LIVE AND FREE ON KU!!
Let’s start off with mentioning what a huge fan I am of Erin Noelle and her┬áBook Boyfriend series. ┬áIt’s been some time since I read the original books, but I couldn’t hold back when I found out there was a spin-off. ┬áI’ve never read the student/teacher romance genre and I’m left with some mixed feelings. ┬áI believe Noelle handled it very well, but I must admit I was left feeling a bit uncomfortable and angsty at times. ┬áWhile the characters are interesting and draw you in, I couldn’t get around the feeling of what bad could happen. ┬áAdmittedly, this certainly adds to the angst factor and can be SUPER appealing to some. ┬áHowever, I’m the person who squeals and hides during awkward moments in books and TV shows…so, take it with a grain of salt.
Though it certainly makes me feel like a cougar right now, I was swooning over Everette. ┬áI’m going to say he was 85% man and the virgin part was incredibly endearing. ┬áMost of the time I forgot he was 18. ┬áI can only imagine what kind of man he’ll be (hmmm…will we find out, Erin?!). He’s certainly an old soul for his age. ┬áAnd man, what a polar opposite from his sister. ┬áI never got a good feel for who she is except for a superficial skim of her partiality to all that glitters. ┬áI think she has some substance way down deep, but you have to dig for a while. ┬áThough, I will hand it to her for being a strong advocate and protector of her brother. ┬áKudos!
Little lost Belle. ┬áI can imagine the torment she was feeling being drawn to a man who was not quite a man and legally off-limits. ┬áPoor girl sure had a shit run of luck with her ex. ┬áThe moment she decides to let go, “BAM!” in the form of hot, irresistible, and illegal Everette. ┬áShe certainly puts up a struggle┬áand a valiant one at that. ┬áHowever, when she decides to go all in, she goes for it. ┬áI didn’t feel as connected to her as I did to Everette. ┬áHe seemed to carry the soul of the story and was the one to spark her to life.
The storyline was intriguing and the characters very interesting. ┬áI think the two things which caused hiccups in my reading where the quick developments/plot turns and the fear of them getting caught (my own personal hangup). ┬áSo, while I am not sure if I’ll pick up another book in this genre, I KNOW I’ll pick up another Erin Noelle book because she writes that well.
ÔÇ£I-I-IÔÇÖm Ms. Sloan,ÔÇØ I managed to squeak out, ÔÇ£the new Art History teacher here.ÔÇØ
Staggering backward a few steps, she gaped at me in disbelief as all of the color drained from her face. ÔÇ£Say what?ÔÇØ
I nodded and pointed over to my car, where the faculty parking tag hung from my rearview mirror. ÔÇ£Yeah, thatÔÇÖs my car. I was leaving for the day and realized IÔÇÖd forgotten my phone upstairs,ÔÇØ I explained, lifting my cell up in the air.
ÔÇ£Oh, fuck me,ÔÇØ she mumbled, squeezing her eyes shut and covering her face with her hands. ÔÇ£IÔÇÖm so sorry. I thought you were someone else, and I tend to get a little overprotective when it comes to my brother, andÔÇöÔÇØ
ÔÇ£ItÔÇÖs okay,ÔÇØ I assured her, reaching out to touch her arm so sheÔÇÖd stop and look at me. ÔÇ£Seriously, no harm, no foul. We can just pretend this never happened.ÔÇØ
Tilting her head slightly to the side, she studied me for a couple of seconds, and then a brilliant smile lit up her pretty face. ÔÇ£But you are her, arenÔÇÖt you?ÔÇØ she whispered.
My lack of an answer confirmed what she already knew and she started bouncing up and down on her toes, clapping excitedly. ÔÇ£Oh wow! This is so exciting, a forbidden romance. I knew when Everett finally did it, heÔÇÖd do it big.ÔÇØ
I wasnÔÇÖt sure how to take the last part of her comment, but I chose to ignore it for the time being and focus on the first part. ÔÇ£No, there is nothing exciting, no romance,ÔÇØ I stressed. ÔÇ£IÔÇÖm his teacher and he is my student. ThatÔÇÖs it. Nothing more.ÔÇØ
ÔÇ£Okay, Ms. Sloan. I hear yaÔÇª nothing more.ÔÇØ She smirked sassily, as if she didnÔÇÖt believe anything I was saying. ÔÇ£And my lips are sealed. Promise.ÔÇØ
She pretended like she zipped up her mouth and threw away the key then sauntered off toward a flashy silver Mercedes, waving bye to me before she lowered herself onto the driverÔÇÖs seat. I peered down at the phone in my hands. 4:08. Shit. Now, I was late.
By the time I found the restaurant and joined my coworkers at the bar, I wasnÔÇÖt sure if the restaurant had enough tequila for the amount I needed to drink.
