Publication Date: July 17, 2013

Unteachable is one of my favorite books and now it has a new beautiful cover! Congratulations to Leah Raeder as she's now being published by Atria Books and Unteachable has been republished!

Here's my mini review of Unteachable which is standalone about a forbidden teacher/student romance. I LOVED this book and I want you to love it too so I'm giving away an ebook copy! 


Maise O’Malley just turned eighteen, but she’s felt like a grown-up her entire life. The summer before senior year, she has plans: get into a great film school, convince her mom to go into rehab, and absolutely do not, under any circumstances, screw up her own future.

But life has a way of throwing her plans into free-fall.

When Maise meets Evan at a carnival one night, their chemistry is immediate, intense, and short-lived. Which is exactly how she likes it: no strings. But afterward, she can’t get Evan out of her head. He’s taught her that a hookup can be something more. It can be an unexpected connection with someone who truly understands her. Someone who sees beyond her bravado to the scared but strong girl inside.

That someone turns out to be her new film class teacher, Mr. Evan Wilke.

Maise and Evan resolve to keep their hands off each other, but the attraction is too much to bear. Together, they’re real and genuine; apart, they’re just actors playing their parts for everyone else. And their masks are slipping. People start to notice. Rumors fly. When the truth comes to light in a shocking way, they may learn they were just playing parts for each other, too.

Smart, sexy, and provocative, Unteachable is about what happens when a love story goes off-script.



I absolutely loved this book! It's the type of book I just couldn't put down.

First and for most, the writing was amazingly beautiful. Descriptive, intense, touching, breathtaking, and so freaking HOT! I loved the forbiddenness of the story because it made it so intense, addictive, and captivating.

Maise was an extraordinary character. She amazed me with her personality and bravado. Even with such a tough life she was always a strong girl. Her journey was so magical but at the same time so real. :')

Evan really blew me away with everything he said and did for Maise. His struggle between what felt right and what would be considered wrong made his actions that much meaningful to the story. But regardless the circumstances, both him and Maise were just following their hearts. And that's what is so captivating about this story for me...♥ A MUST READ!

Favorite Quotes: 

"...the guy and I reached for each other's hands spontaneously and simultaneously. And I felt something I've never felt before. You can call it love, or you can call it free fall. They're pretty much the same thing.

"You've done something to me... I feel like I'm waking from a long dream, and everything is so much more beautiful than I remember."

"The world is new when I'm with you."

"You know why I was happy up there? Because I completely forgot where I was. All I could think about was you."

"...the night I met you was like someone handed me a winning lottery ticket and said, 'You can only have if you don't tell anyone.'"

"Don't be afraid," Evan said. "We're in this together, hand in hand, against the world."
