Until that moment, Mr. Ean was simply a man she passed in the halls. Afterwards, he is impossible to ignore … to forget.

Mr. Ean only wanted to help Kaelyn. Patch her up and show her she was worth so much more than she was giving herself. He didn’t mean to fall in love with a student. It’s wrong, he knows it, but he can’t help himself around her. Not when her pain feels like his.

Under The Peaches by Shana Vanterpool
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Get ready for a book hangover! Under the Peaches is an incredible, hard, simply unforgettable read. This will be short, as I am unable to fully express how much I enjoyed the one of the best emotionally engaging tales I’ve read.

Kaelyn and Julian have to travel an astounding path. The pushing and pulling from both happens in a heartbreaking way, rather than a whiplash. The will they, won’t they pulls your heart in so many directions. I felt every level of emotion while reading, pacing, putting the book down because it was making my own anxiety skyrocket. The twists and turns make each word that much more delicious.

Under the Peaches is a MUST READ. Prepare for angst, heartbreak and a rocky road littered with bumps.

In my current state, between ignoring and hanging on every word, I admit that’s what he is to me too. A shield between the hurt and me. I know exactly what he means. When I am around him, I forget to hurt, and it isn’t fair because he’s hurting too. But I can’t help it. No one warned me about him either.
“Julian.”
“It’s like,” he whispers. “Like and attraction doesn’t mean love.”
What did mean love?
