Hard to Handle by RC Boldt

Author: RC Boldt
Publisher:  RC Boldt Publishing
Date of publication: February 2016

RC Boldt's Teach Me series gives us a closer look at just how thin the line is between love and hate… 

Fifth grade social studies teacher, Laney Kavanaugh, is no stranger to being left behind – her father taught her that at a young age. That's why she always has her eyes wide open when it comes to men. She's determined she will never again be the one left behind. She doesn't let sex blur what they're really doing; it's always just sex. 

Until Zach. 

Zachariah Mayson, fifth grade writing and English teacher, has been the bane of Laney's existence from the moment they met at their shared elementary school. She can't stand him. He gets under her skin like no other and is always utterly obnoxious in his attempts–and successes–in getting a rise out of her. 

Until the wedding. 

Hard to Handle is the second book in the Teach Me series.  Zach and Laney have been teacher "frenemies" for eight years. They are always sniping at each other.  However Zach secretly wants it to stop and become more than friends.  Laney has sworn off love and commitment ever since her father left when she was little.  

I really enjoyed this one, even though it was really gut wrenching at times. I will admit that I wanted to strangle Laney throughout most of this book. Zach was so in love with her and she was not wanting to see  any of that because of her childhood.  I loved seeing that Zach really wasn't a jerk,  It all just ended up being the only way he could get Laney to pay attention to him.  I don't want to say to much about the plot.  Just go read it.  The ending is super sweet.  I promise you will love it!

About the author:

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. :)
