The Teacher’s Billionaire by Christina Tetreault
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I have to admit I enjoy a good romance, and this qualifies as a pretty good romance, I would say. I can identify with Callie since she is a teacher (and so am I). I cannot imagine how the news she heard would change my life, and it was amazing to see how it changed hers. I don’t think I would have responded too well to the news either. I might even tend to say that Callie was very similar to me in personality, so I easily identified with her.
Dylan had everything going for him. And the fact that he was British made him even more charming to me. I loved the interactions between the two–I would have even loved more banter because it was quite witty at times. He was the perfect gentleman and just your all-around nice guy. I often felt like I wanted to just take Callie by the shoulders and ask her why she was being so difficult. But then, I can understand. I probably would have reacted and thought very much the same thing if I were in her position.
Sometimes the story was a little surreal to me and seemed to be working out too well. Yes, it was even a little cheesy at times, but the romance was fantastic! I was glad that the sex scenes were not detailed. I wish there had been none, but at least a lot was left to the imagination! I often do not like intruding on character’s bedroom scenes. I was also pleased that the profanity was incredibly mild. Sure, I could have done without it, but I cannot say I found it overly offensive.
I read at the end of the book that the author was planning a second book about one of the lesser characters, Jake. I think I would like to watch out for that book. The author has an easy-to-read style, and she easily switched back and forth between points of view.
If you like romance, this book is for you!
