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…
5 out of 5 stars
Wildest Dream is a wonderful debut book by R.C Boldt. It is the first book in the Teach Me series, but doesn’t end in a cliffhanger. Raine and Mac have amazing chemistry together and I loved watching their friendship and relationship develop over the course of the book. They have a group of great, quirky, and funny friends that anyone would be lucky to have. Everybody needs friends like that in their life. This story had me laughing numerous times, along with feeling frustrated at Mac and Raine for not admitting their feelings for each other sooner, and brought me to tears with their painful pasts. The cast of characters in this book are very well developed and you come to feel like you really know them and are a part of their group. This is a book I couldn’t put down once I started reading it and I’m looking forward to reading more books by this author. <3
