Synopsis:

I was thrilled when I was offered a graduate teaching position at the prestigious Tennerson Girls Academy. At twenty-three, this would be my first ‘real’ teaching assignment. Working at the elite boarding school, home to the daughters of some of the wealthiest people in the world, was a great opportunity that I would’ve been stupid to pass up.

One week into my new job, and I suddenly had no idea why I chose high school…I was a seventeen year old boy once, I knew how teenage girls behaved. 

You can’t even imagine the hell of trying to teach thirty, hormonal driven seventeen year olds who have been cooped up, away from any male contact. 

I could handle the whispers every time I entered the room. I could even handle the obvious attempts at gaining my attention. What I couldn’t handle was her…



Rich bitches and way too many rules. Was it any wonder that I hated school? 

Add to that the lack of male contact, and I was going insane. Like literally. I wasn’t used to this. A year ago I was normal. I had a boyfriend, friends and a loving family. There is nothing normal about me anymore, and nobody here lets me forget that.

My name is Wrenn, and I’m only here because my aunt took me in after what happened, but my aunt also happens to be the headmistress of this academy…Can you see my problem? 

I’m hated for my lack of money, and I’m hated for who my Aunt is.

Then he arrived. Dalton Reed. My new history teacher.

Slowly, he helped me see that even in the worst situations, there is always hope.


Excerpt

I laughed. “Trust me, they do. I’m the niece of the headmistress and I don’t come from a family of big money. Add to that all the ‘special’ attention I used to get from teachers who were just trying to look out for me, and what’s to not like?” I joked. I shrugged. “Not that I care. With the exception of Kass, I’d prefer not to know any of my peers. I focus on my schoolwork and grades. That’s it. Two more months and I’m free. Less than two months. Six weeks. Thank God for extra credit and early graduation.”
He was silent for a moment. “Anyone who chooses not to get to know you is missing out. Not you. You’re unlike anyone I’ve met.” He looked up and met my gaze; those incredible blue eyes were staring right into my soul. It gave me goose bumps. This guy made me feel like I wanted to live. Really live, not just go through the motions of day to day life.

4 Star Review---- ****
When you think of Student Teacher relationships, you think scandolous. While Always You by Missy Johnson was scandalous, it wasn't what you see in a normal taboo student/teacher relationship entails. 
Instead it centered on Wrenn & Dalton. They were beautiful together. Any while they were student & teacher, they were friends first. I loved that they had a past. I loved that their relationship was instant chemistry. 
Missy Johnson told such a sweet story in Always You. This was my first book by this author and it definitely made me a fan. The characters she developed in the story were great. Wrenn was funny and even though she suffered a tremendous loss, she was strong and determined. She wasn't scared to go after what she wanted or she wasn't afraid to ask. 
Dalton was a sweetheart. He tried so hard to resist the pull he felt with Wrenn, tried to be the good guy. His story with Wrenn was bound to happen. They were meant to be. All in all this book was beautiful. I adored the writing, 4 stars for sure!!
