After teaching eighth grade gifted language arts for years, I’m being moved to remedial sixth grade science.
New team. New subject.
New everything. Oh, and did I mention “science” now includes sex ed? Some of these kids—like that hellion Roxie Rambling, who, a decade later, still holds the title of My Worst Student Ever—probably know more about sex than me, and I’m an expert on the subject.
To add insult to injury, I’ve been assigned an intern from the local college. I need to focus on winning Teacher of the Year, not waste my charm, wit, and ruggedly handsome looks on coddling some bimbo playing teacher.
Just when it can’t possibly get worse, a twenty-one-year-old, hot-as-hell Roxie Rambling darkens my door, wearing a red mini skirt, four-inch heels, and an ID that reads “Student Teacher.”
Mr. Jack Slater is anything but ready for the new school year since he's just met the new 'dragon lady' principal, been moved from 8th grade to 6th grade, has to now teach science and has been assigned a student teacher. So when he meets the student teacher and she turns out to be an old student THE Roxie Ramblings, who was the bane of his first year teaching, Mr. Slater is anything but happy. Roxie can't believe she assigned to the teacher who made her life hell, all she wants to do now is prove all Mr. Slater wrong and show him that she is capable of anything. Now if only the two could agree on how a class can be taught or how to deal with disruptive kids, while trying not to let that unspoken or unwanted attraction pop up, then maybe Mr. Slater and Miss Roxie Ramblings may get through the semester.
Overall, really enjoyed this read, the characters were hot for each other and made a real impact on their students lives. Teachers are unsung heroes, they truly have the power to lift up or destroy their students. So seeing Roxie re-enter Mr. Slater's life and change his perspective on how or why he teaches and having him see that a little love and attention can improve the students lives tremendously was wonderful to read. Of course all the hot sexy scenes of ex-group of student with hot brutish teacher were definitely great too. Especially when Mr. Slater realizes his McSlutbag days may just be over and he may have found his cinderella in basketball shoes. So if you want to read a story where a bad girl returns to make good and helps an old teacher learn new tricks, then this will be a great read.
