Title: Love Lessons Learned
Author: K.C. Wells
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Genre: Gay/ Contemporary
When John comes out, he’s supported and loved by his family and friends. What more could he want?
Only his new boss, closeted Brett.
John Wainwright is having a momentous day. To start off, he lands his first teaching job. Then his brother, Evan, and Evan’s husband, Daniel, take him out to celebrate in Manchester’s gay village. An encounter with a sexy man forces John to admit what he’s been denying for too long—he’s gay. His coming out proves he’s supported and loved by his family and roommates. What more could a man want? There’s just one small problem: John’s dishy Head Teacher, Brett Sanderson, and John’s gigantic crush on him. Too bad Brett is straight.
Brett Sanderson leads a double life. At thirty-three, he is the Head Teacher of a primary school. But for seven years now, during every school holiday, Brett has fled to Brighton, where he becomes ‘Rob,’ a man who has a different guy in his bed every night but has never had a relationship.
Once he’s back in school, Brett is firmly back in that closet, until his newest staff member starts prying open the door. When John pulls out all the stops to get Brett’s attention, neither man is prepared for the consequences.
I have to say right off the bat, I love this book!
John is such a wonderful and sweet man, who with the help of his younger brother, Evan and his husband Daniel, came to the realization that yes… he is gay! I admired that there was no drama around this self discovery and how he had the immediate support and love of his family.
Brett noticed John right away but he is John’s boss and mentor and he feels he cannot act on this attraction.
There was a few times that I really hated Brett for his treatment of John, but it let his roommates shine in the tender care they took of heartbroken John.
K.c. Wells tells this story of self discovery of both John and Brett in such a way that I couldn’t wait to tell you about it. Here it is in the middle of the night and I just finished this book and I immediately had to write my review and tell you that this story is a must read!
John’s roommates are as much a part of this story as John And Brett. I loved each and everyone of these characters and will be watching Ms. Wells closely to see if she tells us their stories. They deserve their own HEA!
If you have not read K.C Wells books yet, you really need to add her to your library, she is a Master Story Teller and will quickly become a favorite go to Author.
