Summary from Goodreads:

Book 1 in the Lessons in Love New Adult Romance series

The Lessons in Love series follows the story of high school cheerleader Alex Heron. She's pretty, blonde and popular. Alex seems to have it all, but she's hiding a dark secret from her past that threatens to destroy her future. Only the handsome new math teacher, Mark Simmons, can see past Alex's façade to the real girl hiding inside. He wants to help Alex overcome her past, but will their developing feelings for each other get in the way?
“Are you having a good night?” Mark asked as they strolled through the park. Above them, some stars had begun to shine.

“I’m having a perfect night,” Alex admitted while Mark leaned in to kiss her. They remained kissing in the park for several minutes, getting lost in the sensation of one another.

“It’s getting late. I should get you back home.” Mark sighed as he checked his watch. Alex didn’t want to leave him, not yet, maybe not ever. She kissed him again, eager to keep the magic of the moment alive for as long as she could.

“If you keep kissing me, then we’ll never get back,” Mark joked. “I don’t want to enrage your mother.”

“Maybe I don’t have to go back,” Alex suggested. She wrapped her arms around Mark’s neck and then slowly lowered them down his body, feeling the curvature of his spine as she did so.

“What are you suggesting?” Mark asked a little breathless. Spurred on by her own yearnings, Alex was no longer the timid teenager but a skilled seductress.

“Maybe I could come back to yours,” she whispered into his ear.

“Are you sure?” Mark asked.

Alex kissed him hard and deep to show him just how certain of her proposal she was.

I have been an avid reader and and writer since my earliest school days. Reading was my first and earliest passions, often seeking the safe sanctuary of my room or the library to read everything I could. My favorite has been romance. I penned some romantic poetry in high school and was winning school awards for my short stories when I was just 16. In college I would hibernate in the library for days at a time, consuming every short story and novel I could find. My diploma says Bachelors in English Lit. which I'm very proud of.

I probably drink too much coffee and eat too much junk food, but to compensate do like running when the weather is nice. I love shopping in the mall even if I never find what I'm looking for. I'm a hopeful romantic who prefers novels with a happy ending.
