What do you do when being with the man you love is forbidden?
You hide it.
Our relationship is secret because he's my teacher, but it wasn't always that way. We met online, when I lied about my age. For six months we built a friendship that slowly moved into something more.
What i wasn't expecting was for my lies to unravel like they did when he walked into that classroom. We're too far gone to try and deny our feelings for each other, so we sneak around like we are ashamed of how we feel.
We steal kisses or the touch of a hand when nobody is watching.The problem is, somebody is always watching and when things go wrong, they have the potential to ruin everything.
A good example of not even even reading a synopsis!
I didn't think this would be about a forbidden romance due to teacher/student but more like a modern day Romeo and Juliet... or something like that.
I'm actually really suprised that considering how much they see each other, that they weren't caught and when they finally get confronted by it, it's easily dismissed.
Becuase of the fact that Jill lied about her age and to Eli, it's easy to forgive the relationship in your head, rather than perceiving him as a preditor and the fact that he's not really that old realistically also helps. She's not 18 while he's 50... you know? So the age thing isn't an issue to read.
Most of the issues lie outside of their relationship though. Jill's Mom, Eli's Dad and then the incident that happens at the party... it's not really their relationship and they do really well to keep it as low key as possible. You can tell these pair love each other from the start, they're like an instant married couple. Eli and Jill only struggle with everything when Eli has to continue being her teacher and then the prospect of losing his job causes them to break up... but then make-up...
I couldn't put the book down and really enjoyed the read. It's not painful on the head with complicated plots.
Other than the age and their 'positions' it's a lovely read.
