Chloe Henderson has never been one to break the rules or push the boundaries… but during her summer break, she and her friends use fake IDs to sneak into a club. It’s there that she meets handsome and alluring bartender, Will Morris. The pair hit it off immediately, growing closer with every passing day. But as with every summer, it has to end sometime.
Chloe’s senior year approaches and there’s a shock in store when she returns to do her final year at school. Will is there too, but he’s not one of her fellow students…
A tale of forbidden love, broken hearts, friendship, and rivalry.
As a Fan of Pretty Little Liars and a massive fan of Ezra and Aria – A teacher and pupil – i do, in fact, love the whole forbidden (thanks mum for the word) relationships. It’s a kind of thrill to read them as i would have never thought to get into a relationship with a teacher, let alone thought about it. But the way Ezra and Aria and Chloe and Will got together were similar and both guys didn’t know how old the other were until they inevitable happens and they become the girl’s teacher’s.
Chloe and Will meet in a bar, as she uses a fake ID to get in and he is a bartender. They hit it off immediately and spent every day together. Will (22) thought Chloe (17) was college age and never questioned it and Chloe thought Will was just a bartender. The more time they spent together, the more they seemed to fall for one another.
Meeting Will’s parents on the second day they knew each other, his parents and brother took an instant liking to her, so when the day of school came around, and everyone was on about the new maths teacher, it came as a massive shock for both Chloe and Will to find out she was a minor and in his maths class. So of course, Will has to break up with her.
Throughout her break up, so regularly went on ‘dates’ with Will’s brother Sam, much to Wills dismay. But Chloe finds a great friend in Sam throughout her heartbreak over Will and Sam knows that Will is feeling the same way.
Trying to make Will jealous, Chloe begins to go out her classmate Oliver, whom she has no feelings for and his possessiveness over the amount of boy friends she has pushes her over the limit especially as her ex- boyfriend turned best friend Nick, needs her during the time of year his mum died.
During the course of the book, Will and Chloe learn to be friends – I think I’d say, although the attraction for one another is still there and it all comes together when during one detention over Oliver fondling her on school property, Will buys her Malteasers and they both throw them in the air, trying to get them in their mouths. Because of this and trying to act normal around each other, when they go on a school trip paint balling, Chloe accidentally shoots Will on the shoulder when they are waiting to start, which makes me shot her on the bum.
She gets stranded from Nick during the game and Will finds her. They begin to talk and end up kissing, Will confessing his true feelings for Chloe and they get together once again.
Although they have to be super careful over their relationship, big trouble occurs for them both and Sam comes to the rescue, to solve the problem and sort it all out so his brother and Chloe don’t get in trouble.
I was actually on edge for most of the book, waiting for something extremely big to happen, which of course something did, but thanks to Sam it was all okay.
Although it’s a forbidden romance, you can’t help getting sucked in and I actually thought 5 years wasn’t that big a deal, as Will kept reminding her that she was a minor.
What he did for her 18th though, super cute and I really want someone to do that for me.
The epilogue was a great way to end the book, especially the last sentence.
A definite recommendation for this book as it has everything. Fun characters, forbidden romance, heartache and big laughs. You will instantly fall in love with Will, Sam and Nick! I guarantee.
