Without a supportive family when he was a teenager, Charlie’s Tourette syndrome and anxiety had become too overwhelming and he ended up dropping out of school. He always promised himself he’d earn his GED before he turned thirty, and now he’s running out of time.
With only four months to go, he gathers his courage and enrolls in a night class for adults. He knows it isn’t going to be easy, but he certainly didn’t expect to fall for his teacher.
Owen Talbot is everything Charlie’s looking for, but he needs to focus on passing the test, not studying the teacher, no matter how much he wants the man. When Owen offers Charlie a personal tutoring session, he isn’t sure it’s a good idea but he takes the teacher up on the offer, anyway. Spending one-on-one time with his sexy teacher won’t be a problem, right?
I really enjoyed this story. All Charlie really needed was someone to love him unconditionally and not judge him which is seems most have done for him. Owen was perfect for him and wouldn’t let anyone hurt Charlie’s feelings and hurt his chances of completing his GED.
I liked how they connected so easily and the how laid back their time was together. I know Charlie would start to over think things but I loved that Owen’s presence helped him to relax. This was a perfect short sweet story and I didn’t feel like I needed more of the story in the end.
The cover art by Written Ink Designs is nice and works well for the story.
