AN APPLE FOR THE TEACHER
J. GAYLE KELLY
Rating: 4 Cups
Sam Armstrong leaves her home in Montana after a scandal leaves her feeling bereft. She arrives in Wenatchee, Washington, ready to start the school year off and get into her coaching shoes for the boy’s basketball team.
Ryne Summers is the new principal at the school and knows he must make good decisions. When he sees the new Varsity basketball coach, Ryne has to admit that his brain temporarily shut down and his mouth got the best of him.
Sam is ready to choke Ryne. First, he accuses her of being misleading and then propositions her all in one breath. Well if he thinks a little needling will get her to quit being the coach, he is in for a shock. If Ryne wants to see just how good she is, then Sam will bring her game and beat the living pants off the cocky principal. Both think they have each other’s game plan figured out, but who knows what will happen when love, lust, secrets, and the past is added to the mix.
An Apple for the Teacher is a nice story in the beginning, catching my interest quickly. Ms. Kelly writes of two characters that have been hurt in the past and have some serious trust issues. The base storyline reminded me a little of the movie Wildcats, and I was definitely rooting for Sam to show them she could coach. The only downfall for me is the fact the trust issue just keeps going back and forth, over and over again until it got a little tiring. This is a cute and fun read with some big subject matters that most people can and might have related themselves to, making it a good story to read.
