Jessica Stone has her life in perfect order until her perfectly boring boyfriend Brett puts things in perspective. So when she receives a call to action from her heartbroken best friend Cassie, she ditches her plans for Winter Break in gloomy Olympic Falls and sets off to Mexico for some fun in the sun.

Determined to use her oceanview to prep for her MCATS, she doesn't plan to run into anyone from Olympic State, least of all the cute communications prof she's been crushing on for a year. When he unexpectedly saves the day, the two are thrown together in a distinctly extracurricular activity.

Roman Markson doesn’t expect to run into anyone he knows from Olympic Falls while visiting his family in Puerto Vallarta, especially not a former student. Although Jess Stone has a way of catching men’s attention, a relationship with her is strictly off-limits. However, the rules feel less strict in Mexico, so they agree to a plan: one week in paradise and nothing more.

But avoiding each other back on campus is harder than they anticipated, especially when they can’t stay away from one another. Neither is sure what they have to learn—and lose—before life teaches them a lesson they’ll never forget.

Hands down to Gennifer Albin *slowly claps*. This is one of the best New Adult books I’ve read! I loved everything about it and I couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome of the story. After reading Catching Liam, I became an instant fan of Albin and I was more than giddy to get my hands on Teaching Roman. I read this book in one sitting! This is the type of book that you just have to read and forget about the rest of the world at that moment. 

Teaching Roman was very romantic, sweet and sexy. The characters were very relatable and believable. The story line was realistic, I honestly believe that what happened to Jessica and Roman could happen to anyone. The pacing of the book was just right for me and I found myself really immersed in the story. I found Roman very attractive, handsome and down to earth person. I absolutely love his character and I adore his love for his grandmother. Jessica to me was an amazing female lead. I love how she was with her friends and I caught myself laughing out loud a few times with the conversations between them. 

The romance, ah! The connection between Jessica and Roman is really strong. Neither of them can deny that they are attracted to each other and when Jessica gets into some sticky situation with her friend Cassie, who comes to the rescue? Roman! Jessica’s vacation immediately turned a little bit more interesting. Exotic beach in Mexico + hot-guy = I will leave the rest to your imagination. 

My final thoughts: I adore Roman and Jessica's story. It was perfect for me. I swooned and laughed. I felt sentimental at certain parts and happy at others.  This book was the complete package to me. I am really happy that I found another author that I can just read a book and be completely transported into the story. Albin’s writing is amazing and I can't wait to read Cassie’s story.  

I like coffee. A lot. Writing gives me time to go get a cup without my kids. I like books as much as I like coffee, but it is easier to read with children hanging on you than drink coffee due to the threat of third degree burns. That's why coffee gets top billing in my intro: its unattainability.
I hold a Masters in English with a specialization in 18th century women's studies. While this is a highly marketable area of expertise, I stay home with my kids, which means my 3 year-old son uses correct grammar and doesn't burn down the house.
I have a ridiculously supportive husband who dreams of being included on a book jacket: "The author lives in Kansas with her husband, two children, and a Tuesday cat." 



  1. Whoa... I didn't even know Gennifer wrote NA books!! I'm a HUGE fan of her writing, too, she's just fantastic - though I've only read her YA books in the CREWEL series. I'll have to check this one out!!
