Blurb : Maise O’Malley just turned eighteen, but she’s felt like a grown-up her entire life. The summer before senior year, she has plans: get into a great film school, convince her mom to go into rehab, and absolutely do not, under any circumstances, screw up her own future.
But life has a way of throwing her plans into free-fall.
When Maise meets Evan at a carnival one night, their chemistry is immediate, intense, and short-lived. Which is exactly how she likes it: no strings. But afterward, she can’t get Evan out of her head. He’s taught her that a hookup can be something more. It can be an unexpected connection with someone who truly understands her. Someone who sees beyond her bravado to the scared but strong girl inside.
That someone turns out to be her new film class teacher, Mr. Evan Wilke.
Maise and Evan resolve to keep their hands off each other, but the attraction is too much to bear. Together, they’re real and genuine; apart, they’re just actors playing their parts for everyone else. And their masks are slipping. People start to notice. Rumors fly. When the truth comes to light in a shocking way, they may learn they were just playing parts for each other, too.
Smart, sexy, and provocative, Unteachable is about what happens when a love story goes off-script.
Review : I received an e-arc for an honest review. Thank you for giving me that chance! Review might contain spoilers
Even for me as native german speaker it was easy to follow the well written story line
At first thinking the age difference between them was going to be too big i had little hope for a good ending . This made me hesitate in reading at first!
But the really good writing made me go on page after page …
And I am happy I did.
I agree with other reviewers that M. point of view of herself is a little “bitter” in the beginning – putting herself in the middle of all the attention around her. But if we honestly try to remember us beeing her age – didn’t we feel the same ? Like everybody only staring at you? (In a good or bad way – depending if you were/felt beautiful or ugly)
