Wildest Dream (Book 1 in the Teach Me series) by RC Boldt
Date of Publication: December 8, 2015
The Teach Me series starts off with the story of Raine and Mac, the most unlikely of best friends…
Taken from his parents and bounced from one foster home to the next, former Navy SEAL turned math teacher, Callum "Mac" Mackenzie had a rough childhood. The only time he's let himself get attached to anyone has been with his military "brothers". He's convinced he doesn't know how to love and certainly doesn't "do" relationships. He's spent fourteen years in the Navy and now he gets to live out his other dream: teaching.
Her thirtieth birthday fast approaching, science teacher, Raine Thompson feels as if her time to find "the one" is running out. She knows life is short, especially after dealing with breast cancer two years ago, and wants to experience her own happily ever after. But is it in the cards for her?
Finally acting on the simmering attraction they have long ignored, Raine and Mac decide to have a fling and they discover what it's like to have someone who knows you inside out also be the one who makes your body come alive.
But it was only temporary…
My 4 star review of Wildest Dream
This is RC's first book, and I was really captivated!! I really enjoyed her writing, the characters and the storyline. I really enjoyed Mac and Raine's story
Callum 'Mac' Mackenzie was a Navy Seal, and has had many things happen in his life- but he has always wanted to teach, and make a difference, and when he secures a job as a teacher after his service- and he never expects to meet some people that will become the most important people in his life. He also does not by any means do relationships- he doesn't feel worthy.
Raine Thompson is the heroine and also a teacher. She has the best job, and the best friends. She is always being set up with losers and such. She thinks she is never meant to find the one. She has had some crappy relationships that hit this point home. And she doesn't know that Mac will come to mean the world to her. Her best friend!
They keep fighting what they have, to become more than friends and doesn't want to ruin what they have. But if they could only see how fantastic they would be together! I loved this story, and i loved the secondary characters- and it looks like this will be a series! Can't wait for more!
About RC Boldt
RC Boldt is the wife of Mr. Boldt, a retired Navy Chief, mother of Little Miss Boldt, and former teacher of many students. She currently lives on the coast of North Carolina but dreams of relocating to a tropical island. When she's not writing, she can be found daydreaming of relocating to a tropical island, at the beach, going running with her family (and contemplating *gently* tossing her daughter out of the jogging stroller to reduce weight resistance), singing karaoke, harassing her husband or relaxing with a good book. And, let's be honest. Most of those activities listed probably include wine or a good microbrew. Except for the running. In that case, the drinks come afterward. :)
