Blog Tour and Book review of Teaching Roman (Good Girls Don't #2) by Gennifer Albin

Jessica Stone has her life in perfect order until her perfectly boring boyfriend Brett puts things in perspective. So when she receives a call to action from her heartbroken best friend Cassie, she ditches her plans for Winter Break in gloomy Olympic Falls and sets off to Mexico for some fun in the sun.

Determined to use her oceanview to prep for her MCATS, she doesn't plan to run into anyone from Olympic State, least of all the cute communications prof she's been crushing on for a year. When he unexpectedly saves the day, the two are thrown together in a distinctly extracurricular activity.

Roman Markson doesn’t expect to run into anyone he knows from Olympic Falls while visiting his family in Puerto Vallarta, especially not a former student. Although Jess Stone has a way of catching men’s attention, a relationship with her is strictly off-limits. However, the rules feel less strict in Mexico, so they agree to a plan: one week in paradise and nothing more.

But avoiding each other back on campus is harder than they anticipated, especially when they can’t stay away from one another. Neither is sure what they have to learn—and lose—before life teaches them a lesson they’ll never forget.

I'm a huge fan of Gen's! I've read all her books and LOVE them all. I had been waiting for the release of Teaching Roman for a while and let me tell you the wait was worth it!

I loved Catching Liam, it was Gen's new adult debut and it was awesome.  My review can be found here. It was similar to most new adults yet completely different at the same time.  It didn't really follow any of the new adult tropes and neither did Teaching Roman. We originally met Jess in Catching Liam so I was already hyped to read her story. 

Gen really knows how to create book boyfriends! Her men are the swooniest (is that a word? lol) I've read. I loved Jess's development through the book, it seemed so organic. Jess had grown up in a career oriented home and it was always drilled into her to be a certain way.  Naturally she begins to grow out of this and kind of find her true self.

This book was also REALLY HOT. That's all I'm gonna say about that.

It's also probably the most perfect summer read you can find.  So if you're looking for a beach/summer read, this is the one to read! I also really enjoyed Cassie and Jess's friendship! I found myself laughing out loud many times. There's nothing I didn't like about this book!

I like coffee. A lot. Writing gives me time to go get a cup without my kids. I like books as much as I like coffee, but it is easier to read with children hanging on you than drink coffee due to the threat of third degree burns. That’s why coffee gets top billing in my intro: its unattainability.
I hold a Masters in English with a specialization in 18th century women’s studies. While this is a highly marketable area of expertise, I stay home with my kids, which means my 3 year-old son uses correct grammar and doesn’t burn down the house.
I have a ridiculously supportive husband who dreams of being included on a book jacket: “The author lives in Kansas with her husband, two children, and a Tuesday cat.”
