This was just a great blend of family, coming of age and romance I've read. Really enjoyed this cute and heartfelt story.

Has some of my favorite themes:
- forbidden
- teacher/student
- possessive, jealous hero
- feisty heroine
- beta hero

I adore the heroine:
She's snarky, strong, yet vulnerable and YOUNG - in years, mentally and emotionally. Quirky, beautiful, strong willed and bold.
Despite been hurt by everyone who's supposed to love her (past and present), she manages to stay true to herself. Picks herself up after each and every blow she endures from her family and the male mc.

Well written hero:
Whiny, petulant, immature 24 year old, vanilla beta nerdy hero who seduces and rejects the 17 year old heroine. Over and over.
Constantly draws her in, then dismisses her. And all the while blaming her for being so alluring.
It's unpleasant and hurtful for the poor heroine who doesn't know when he's gonna be rejecting her again or texting her to meet him, after he's JUST told her to bugger off.
He constantly insults her, hurts her, betrays her and thinks the worst of her.
Rejects her when she needs him most.
By the time he proves his worth, it's too little, too late - for me and my rose-colored glasses, anyway.
She, however, is so bewildered and starved for love and attention that she welcomes him with open arms.
