Book Blitz: Always You by Missy Johnson

Always You Banner
Title: Always You
Author: Missy Johnson
Genre: Student Teacher Romance
Release Date: December 19, 2013
I was thrilled when I was offered a graduate teaching position at the prestigious Tennerson Girls Academy. At twenty-three, this would be my first ‘real’ teaching assignment. Working at the elite boarding school, home to the daughters of some of the wealthiest people in the world, was a great opportunity that I would’ve been stupid to pass up.

One week into my new job, and I suddenly had no idea why I chose high school…I was a seventeen year old boy once, I knew how teenage girls behaved.

You can’t even imagine the hell of trying to teach thirty, hormonal driven seventeen year olds who have been cooped up, away from any male contact.

I could handle the whispers every time I entered the room. I could even handle the obvious attempts at gaining my attention. What I couldn’t handle was her…


Rich bitches and way too many rules. Was it any wonder that I hated school?

Add to that the lack of male contact, and I was going insane. Like literally. I wasn’t used to this. A year ago I was normal. I had a boyfriend, friends and a loving family. There is nothing normal about me anymore, and nobody here lets me forget that.

My name is Wrenn, and I’m only here because my aunt took me in after what happened, but my aunt also happens to be the headmistress of this academy…Can you see my problem?

I’m hated for my lack of money, and I’m hated for who my Aunt is.

Then he arrived. Dalton Reed. My new history teacher.

Slowly, he helped me see that even in the worst situations, there is always hope.
As soon as I read the blurb for this book I knew that I had to read it.  Teacher/student forbidden romances always seem to hook me in.
Wrenn lives with her Aunt Layla after the death of her family in a car accident.  Layla is the headmistress of a girls high school that Wrenn now attends.  She is very focused on what she wants to do and is due to graduate in 8 weeks to go to college.
Dalton Reid is the new substitute History teacher, fresh out of college.  He is only 23 years old and gorgeous.  He completely underestimated how forward the hormonal teenage girls in his classes would be and is constantly being hit on.
"This was our new teacher?  My heart was racing just looking at him.  He was fucking adorable" - Wrenn
He however seems to hit it off with Wrenn.  They have similar tastes in movies among other things and he is completely taken with her.  Wrenn is smitten with her new teacher and will do anything to spend more time with him.
"That was probably the best thing about being a girl - I didn't have to worry about trying to hide an erection in the middle of class.  I didn't know how boys did it" - Wrenn
It's not long before they realise this growing attraction between them and even though it is 'ethically' wrong they are finding it hard to resist each other.
"God forbid if he ever actually touched me - I'd actually probably orgasm on the spot" - Wrenn
Their attraction and flirtations with each other do not go unnoticed and soon they find themselves in a predicament which could mean the end of Dalton's career before he has even really started.
Dalton has something important that he needs to share with Wrenn about himself but he is worried that if he does she will not want to consider a possible future with him, come the end of the school year.
This was such a sweet story about two people who are destined to be together if they can only see past the obstacles and see what is possible.
I give this 4 stars :-)

My best friend was dying and I was in love with his girl.

Andy and I had been best friends since we were eight-years old.
Watching him slowly fade away, ever closer to his final breath, made
me so incredibly angry. I knew there was nothing I could do to change it--I had given in to despair, but Andy had not. He had one last hand to play.

He wasn't going to simply sit back and wait for Death to claim him--not Andy. He was going to live life until he couldn't hold his eyes open any longer.

Andy didn't want to die in some sterile hospital and asked me to take him and Emily to the beach. It would be our last road trip together.

Emily. Emily was a problem for me.

I harbored a secret that would have torn our friendship apart. I was in love with Andy's girl, and had been since she'd walked into our sixth grade class, so many years ago.

So what kind of person am I? My best friend is dying, and it's
awful--but my heart still aches for his girl. I hate myself for
thinking beyond Andy's death and whether there could ever be a future for Emily and I, but I can't help it.

I'm in love with her.
