A season of Eden by J.M Warwick


He's my teacher. I shouldn't be alone with him. But I can't help that he's irresistible. I let the door silently close at my back. He stared at me, and a taut quiet stretched between us. "I like hearing you play," I said, moving toward him. He turned, in sync with my slow approach. He looked up at me but didn't say anything. I rested my clammy hand on the cold, slick body of the baby grand. "May I?" The muscles in his throat shifted, then he swallowed. "Eden." My knees weakened, like a soft tickling kiss had just been blown against the backs of them. "Is it okay?" I asked. His gaze held mine like two hands joined. He understood what I was really asking. "Let me stay," I said. "Please." "You're going to get me in trouble," he said.
There is a very limited number of books that fly around the idea of teacher/student romances.  When the teacher is old and wrinkly, I kinda gotta say ew.  But when the teacher doesn't have that much of an age difference with the student, I can deal since I love me a forbidden romance!

 Eden is your typical rich girl: pretty, pretty friends, awesome parties, popular and popular boyfriend...but she isn't as shallow as you'd think.  Her mother died and her father remarried to a young girl, just a few years older than Eden (like father like daughter??).  In fact, I really liked Eden!

James on the other hand is just amazing (SWOON).  He is probably one of my favorite male book characters in a while, he was just so refreshing and nice...and what not.  Definitely different than normal male romance...person, ex: he's a teacher...

Unlike most books the story is more about falling in love than the lure and lust, thankfully.  It's one of those books you can really appreciate!  Eden, as a character really grows in the novel and matures and that's something I love to see in books, when characters evolve!

Don't worry about the age difference, it was just a 4 years age difference, which is not a problem at all.  And the relationship is pretty innocent in itself.  It was a story about falling in love with someone you can't have.  Simple as that.

So basically, the book is a light read and the story is more about growing up, coming to terms with certain factors in life and falling in love, than it is falling in love with a teacher, sneaking around blah blah but rest assured, the book has a bit of that as well.  Pretty much the best of both worlds.

Ms Warwick must have had a hard job of ending this book without upsetting the readers, but she did a fantastic job and definitely satisfied me!

Loved it!  Moody seal of approval = attained!

  1. Glad you got the essence of Eden and the ending was satisfying. I'm amazed at how many readers want more. More definition in the ending. I'm like, "It's up to you - where do you think they go next?"
