Teach Me Dirty by Jade West

This is a standalone book.

They tell me it’s unhealthy, just a stupid crush. They tell me it’s infatuation, and will never come to anything. Never mean anything.
Because what would I know, right?
I haven’t even finished school. I’m just a silly little girl.

And no little girl should want the things I want from him.
No little girl should have the thoughts I have…

But they’re wrong.
I really do love Mr Roberts.
I love Mr Roberts because he’s the most amazing man, the most amazing artist, the most amazing teacher that could ever have existed.

And what if… just what if Mr Roberts wants me, too?
What if Mr Roberts really does want to Teach Me Dirty?

I really enjoyed reading this book. The characters were great and the storyline was good.

I am a fan of teacher-student romance books, but usually not with large age gaps, however this book was brilliant.

I loved Helen and Mark Roberts. Both of them were brilliant and I loved having both of their points of view. Helen was mature for her age, and she knew exactly what she wanted and how she felt. She had moments, but she was only eighteen. She definitely knew her own mind though. Mark knew it was wrong with his position, but he came to accept his feelings. I absolutely loved him. He just wanted what’s best for her, regardless of his feelings towards her. Ultimately, what’s best for both of them was being together.

I absolutely loved watching them grow together, and it was brilliant reading him teach her in more ways than one. They connected on every level, heart and soul. He taught her in the bedroom as well as in the classroom, and they also found friendship with each other. He helped her grow as a person, and she helped him grow. They changed each others lives. I loved the art aspect and how they spoke about it and expressed it. There was true emotion in this book.

I found Lizzie annoying until the end with her confession. After that I could understand her actions and I did feel sorry for her.

Her dad’s reaction was hard, but it was also realistic. He saw what anyone would have. Reading the book, you know different because their feelings were real and you’ve seen inside their thoughts. I loved how it spiraled out from there, and ultimately, I loved her mums love for her daughter and how they fixed everything. Helen needed Mark and her mum knew it after seeing her heart broken.

This book was brilliant because it had emotion. It shows that you really can’t help who you fall in love with. Sometimes two people just click, and belong together.

I would definitely recommend this book.

My rating: 5/5*
