From the Publisher:
John Wainwright is having a momentous day. To start off, he lands his first teaching job. Then his brother, Evan, and Evan’s husband, Daniel, take him out to celebrate in Manchester’s gay village. An encounter with a sexy man forces John to admit what he’s been denying for too long—he’s gay. His coming out proves he’s supported and loved by his family and roommates. What more could a man want? There’s just one small problem: John’s dishy Head Teacher, Brett Sanderson, and John’s gigantic crush on him. Too bad Brett is straight.
Brett Sanderson leads a double life. At thirty-three, he is the Head Teacher of a primary school. But for seven years now, during every school holiday, Brett has fled to Brighton, where he becomes ‘Rob,’ a man who has a different guy in his bed every night but has never had a relationship.
Once he’s back in school, Brett is firmly back in that closet, until his newest staff member starts prying open the door. When John pulls out all the stops to get Brett’s attention, neither man is prepared for the consequences.
I have to say I was not disappointed! As well as catching up with the characters from the previous books the author has given us great new characters in this one! Hopefully we will get their stories soon and the series will continue!
Remember Evan from Book 2? Well this is about John, Evans brother, who has just finished University and landed his first teaching job. On receiving the good news about his job Evan and his husband Daniel take him out on the town for the night. John has been questioning his sexuality for a while but a night in a gay bar confirms what he already knew in the back of his mind. He is a gay man.
His family are supportive and he moves into a house share with three other gay men who very quickly become good friends. He throws himself into his new job with passion and is quickly a favourite with parents, teachers and pupils. The only thorn in his side is his attraction to his head teacher and mentor, but as the guy is straight and John has no intention of being out at work he is determined to ignore it.
Brett Sanderson has been very successful in his teaching career. He very quickly rose through the ranks to make head teacher but it comes at a cost. There are still bigots out there who wouldn’t want a gay man working with children so his private life is just that…..private. In the school holidays he takes on a different persona in a different town and gets what he needs. This has always worked well for him until his new young teacher starts work and upsets his karma.
The attraction is mutual and the sparks fly between the two but each time they come anywhere near admitting what they feel Brett panics and runs and John ends up hurt. Brett finds himself questioning the way he lives his life and realises he is lonely but is not brave enough to make a change. Josh receives terrific advice and support from his new friends and family but cannot get the other man out of his mind.
It takes something spectacular for Brett to open his eyes and give him the courage to end his double life. The fallout could end their careers and they both have to decide whether it is worth it or whether they should just walk away.
