{ Hard To Handle by R.C. Boldt }

Hard To Handle
By: R.C. Boldt
Genre: Romance


~ Synopsis ~

RC Boldt’s Teach Me series gives us a closer look at just how thin the line is between love and hate… 

Fifth grade social studies teacher, Laney Kavanaugh, is no stranger to being left behind – her father taught her that at a young age. That’s why she always has her eyes wide open when it comes to men. She’s determined she will never again be the one left behind. She doesn’t let sex blur what they’re really doing; it’s always just sex. 

Until Zach. 

Zachariah Mayson, fifth grade writing and English teacher, has been the bane of Laney’s existence from the moment they met at their shared elementary school. She can’t stand him. He gets under her skin like no other and is always utterly obnoxious in his attempts–and successes–in getting a rise out of her. 

Until the wedding. 

The night of their friends’ wedding, Laney gives in to a moment of melancholy, knowing she’ll never be able to let her guard down enough to let a guy close, let alone someday get married. She and Zach end up having the hottest night she’d ever experienced, showing her another side of him, a softer, sweeter one he’d hidden from her until now. Because now, he hoped she was finally ready to “see” him. 

But when you’ve always guarded yourself against falling in love, can you let go of the past in order to embrace the future? 





~ Within The Pages Book Blog Review ~ 
5 Star Review!!!

Hard To Handle is Book 2 in the Teach Me Series by R.C. Boldt and I loved every second of it.  

It was fun getting to know Laney and Zach better in Hard To Handle. In Wildest Dream (book 1 of The Teach Me Series) you saw the two tip toeing around each other and knew there was more to their story. I loved learning their story and what made them tick!
(Side note: you don't need to read book 1 to follow Hard to Handle
 but you are definitely missing out if you don't)

Where to start with Laney and Zach? 
Laney doesn't believe in love and marriage . She guards her heart from getting too attached because of circumstances when she was growing up. Zach from the moment of meeting Laney has been tongue tied and they starts off on the wrong foot.  They continue for years having a love/hate relationship.

The day finally comes when lines are crossed and the attraction that they both have towards each other is succumbed too! Laney guarding her heart only wants a sexual relationship and Zach is willing to give her that hoping that things will change. In Hard To Handle you are taken on an emotional roller coaster of ups and downs until finally coming to a stop.

My favorite parts throughout the book was when all the friends were together. I just love the comradely  between them - they have each other back no matter what and have no problem bashing on each other at the same time. I laughed throughout the book - Lawson just cracks me up!

Hard To Handle is a sweet romantic story! 

Can't wait to read more of the series!
