Release Day Blitz for Always You by Missy Johnson (review, links and giveaway)

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.

Always You seemed like it was going to be just another light read about the whole teacher/student love affair, but it wasn't.  It surprisingly got pretty deep.  Dalton and Wrenn both have some painful issues that they have been though and are going through.  The storyline was much more serious than I had expected from the synopsis.  And I think this is a good thing.  This book discussed some emotional topics.  One was very original.  I do not remember reading a book where one of the characters had to deal with this particular problem.  The way the story went wasn't fairytale but instead more realistic which was great in my opinion.  Everything can't always go perfect all the time in real life. Yes, it did have the great true life bits that I enjoyed, and it also has the silly and the sexy.

Made my heart skip?  What was I, a twelve-year-old girl?

And Kass the lesbian best friend is a trip.  

Running your tongue along the opening of a vagina is one of the most erotic things I can think of...god I can't even explain.  It's really something you need to try to understand.

So this books has some great topics, sexy, funny, sad, loving and realistic.  And it's a quick read.

Also I just wanted to say (not about this book) look at Missy's upcoming book Provoke.  Everyone knows how I am about the fighters.  And it looks like it's gonna be a great one!

Missy lives in a small town in Central Victoria with her husband, and her confused pets (a dog who think she's a cat, a cat who thinks he's a get the picture).

When she's not writing, she can usually be found looking for something to read.
