Teaching Roman Blog Tour: Review

Teaching Roman (Good Girls Don't #2)
Jessica Stone has her life in perfect order until her perfectly boring boyfriend Brett puts things in perspective. So when she receives a call to action from her heartbroken best friend Cassie, she ditches her plans for Winter Break in gloomy Olympic Falls and sets off to Mexico for some fun in the sun.

Determined to use her oceanview to prep for her MCATS, she doesn't plan to run into anyone from Olympic State, least of all the cute communications prof she's been crushing on for a year. When he unexpectedly saves the day, the two are thrown together in a distinctly extracurricular activity.

Roman Markson doesn’t expect to run into anyone he knows from Olympic Falls while visiting his family in Puerto Vallarta, especially not a former student. Although Jess Stone has a way of catching men’s attention, a relationship with her is strictly off-limits. However, the rules feel less strict in Mexico, so they agree to a plan: one week in paradise and nothing more.

But avoiding each other back on campus is harder than they anticipated, especially when they can’t stay away from one another. Neither is sure what they have to learn—and lose—before life teaches them a lesson they’ll never forget.

Author Bio:
I like coffee. A lot. Writing gives me time to go get a cup without my kids. I like books as much as I like coffee, but it is easier to read with children hanging on you than drink coffee due to the threat of third degree burns. That's why coffee gets top billing in my intro: its unattainability.
I hold a Masters in English with a specialization in 18th century women's studies. While this is a highly marketable area of expertise, I stay home with my kids, which means my 3 year-old son uses correct grammar and doesn't burn down the house.
I have a ridiculously supportive husband who dreams of being included on a book jacket: "The author lives in Kansas with her husband, two children, and a Tuesday cat."
I'm represented by Mollie Glick of Foundry Literary + Media.

First line:
 If your girlfriend doesn't melt into you or burst into a waterfall of tears when you propose, it's a bad sign.

Gennifer's writing is short and succinct. I love it! Jessica's story was told perfectly. No flowery descriptions, which is perfect for her personality. Jessica and Roman are perfect for each other. Roman brings out Jessica's wild, impulsive, fun side.

Jessica is a control freak. She's constantly making lists in her head. Everything has to be orderly. And above all, nothing can get in the way of med school. She's constantly studying, even between semesters to prepare for it. Roman is more laid back and relaxed. Together, they're perfect for each other.

Teaching Roman is great for anybody looking for an awesome, sweet, quick-read romance. I can't wait to see more of Jessica, Jillian, and Cassie. And i just discovered Unwrapping Liam about Jills and Liam from Catching Liam. So, I'm going to read that right now. I was curious because there were hints dropped in Teaching Roman that something happened between them during Christmas. I can't wait to read it!!
