    Teaching high school is hard, and when you’re fresh out of college there is a legitimate pecking order when it comes to staff, faculty, tenured faculty, and administration. I just wanted to show up, decorate my classroom, and inspire these teenagers to be the best students they can be.

    Why did the assistant principal have to be so handsome?

    Now, it’s hard to focus on teaching when every meeting I have with him hints at something more. High school drama. If only the students knew what happened behind the teachers’ lounge door.

  • All About Charming Alice by J. Arlene Culiner

    0 out of 5

    Alice Treemont has given up hope of meeting the right man and falling in love. Living in Blake’s Folly, a semi-ghost town of rusting cars, old trailers, clapboard shacks, and thirsty weeds, she spends her time cooking vegetarian meals, rescuing unwanted dogs, and protecting the most unloved creatures on earth: snakes. What man would share those interests?

    Jace Constant is in Nevada, doing research for his new book, but he won’t be staying long. As far as he’s concerned, Blake’s Folly is hell on earth. He’s disgusted by desert dust on his fine Italian shoes, and dog hair on his cashmere sweaters. As for snakes, he doesn’t only despise them — he’s terrified by them. He can hardly wait to get back to Chicago’s elegant women, fine dining, and contemporary art exhibitions.

    So how is it possible that each time Alice and Jace meet, the air sizzles? That she’s as fascinated by him, as he is by her? That they know their feelings go deeper than raw desire? Still, it looks like this relationship is doomed before it even starts.

    In need of juicy gossip, the other 52 residents of Blake’s Folly have decided Alice has been alone for long enough. The attraction between her and Jace is obvious, so why worry about essential differences? If you trust in love, solutions do appear. But don’t those solutions call for too many compromises, too much self-sacrifice?

    After going through a terrible breakup with an abusive ex named Todd, Bailey has serious confidence issues. When she is saved from an attempted robbery by three handsome men, Stephen, Riley, and Felipe, however, events are set in motion that will change how she feels about herself…and change her entire life forever.

    She befriends her three rescuers and is surprised to learn that they are head over heels in love with her. Skeptical of their intentions, she initially rejects their advances, although she still wants to remain friends. Weeks pass and her resistance to the idea of being with them begins to fade. They are such gentlemen and treat her like she has always wanted. When they hold a charity event for her brother, Daniel, who has cancer, she finally realizes that they truly love her and are nothing like her ex. Despite her lingering fear of getting her heart broken, she gives herself to them.

    The second half of the book deals with Bailey’s other fear—her family’s acceptance of her new lifestyle. She wrestles with her affection, at which point Riley, Stephen, and Felipe assure her that they want nothing more than for her to be happy. They encourage her to decide who she wants to be with.

    To help her decide, each of them treats her to a weekend getaway. Riley takes her to New York City, Felipe takes her camping in the West Cliffs, and Stephen takes her bungee jumping.

    The story concludes with her taking a literal and symbolic leap. As she jumps from the bungee tower, she chooses to face her fear and be with all three of them rather than just one and to embrace her happily ever after.
