Hmm well when reading everyone s reviews I had a very different expectation of this book I will admit it was a good story but now is where I agree with those before me that it was definitely lacking in some areas There really could have been interaction between them and while the author seemed to indicate the Ali knew Coops story and all about him as a reader we knew almost nothing I think the author really could have spent time giving us details into the story that would have absolutely *made the characters much fully dimensional and well rounded As they were *the characters much fully dimensional and well rounded As they were characters were all flat and the emotional attachment just wasn t there My belief in this feeling was definitely justified when I didn t get emotional once at any oint I read so many reviews of Down Lambeth Way people saying they cried for the last uarter of the book but to me the story and characters were so flat and just onaper that none of it really affected me Now all that being said I did truly enjoy reading a book where both the main characters are educated intelligent hard working Lebanese War people and neither of them was a slut or emotionally scarred by theirast abuse Both Ali and Coop were refreshing in their honesty and goodness I would love to see that in books often but I get that it s harder to sell to most of the readers in the worldOverall decent book uick and easy read that I appreciated but just wished I could have been offered by It had all the otential in the world to be a standout novel but it fell short and ended up simply being mediocre Warning Major SpoilersI was actually disappointed in this book I wanted I feel like I didn t know too much about either of the main characters Ali or Cooper especially Cooper which was odd since it was told in alternating oints of view Ali notices Cooper and vice versa on the beach during her summer with her aunt suddenly they are dating within the blink of an eye they are in love Before you know it there s a mix up and he s her teacher almost the entire year FLIES She s suddenly sick and needs emergency surgery the book randomly turned serious out of nowhere next thing you know Cooper is The Shadowhunters Codex proposing there s a uick no then of course a yes you are lead to believe she doesn t make it out of surgery but learn she does when the last chapter is randomly told from her fathersoint of view two years later on their wedding dayThe story was sweet but this book needed to slow
down I would have loved dialogue focus on the characters both main and secondary seriously most of the secondary characters I would have loved dialogue focus on the characters both main and secondary seriously most of the secondary characters just names Basically the entire book was completely rushed which is unfortunate because it could have been good 10 stars without a second thoughtA book that gives you an idea how true and unconditional looks like Cooper and Alison are two young ersons that they meet in the summer and fall head over heels in love with each otherBut because of a twist of fate they end up being caught in a very difficult situation from they are struggling to get their love out of there unharmed Cooper is a 20 ish year old guy who has finished college and he s getting ready to start teaching with the start of the new school year

To it I did get a little choked up at the ending Overall
not a bad book but not incredible either Has it really only been a bad book but not incredible either Has it really only been week since I read When Summer Ends I must have wanted to move on than I d thought because in my mind it seems like I read that book ages agoThe day after I finished WSE I thought I d try out another book with the same subject in order to see if I could do better so I Thrones, Dominations picked up Teach Me Teach me Coopteach me how to not love you any I didn t end uposting a review when I read this because I didn t want to I Hela Cnau put out into the universe of GR two similar thoughtrocesses on the same subject back to back So I figured I d wait a little while then review In no time during the course of my history of reviewing has this ever been a good idea Short term memory me fail Ask me what I was wearing on my first day of kindergarten and I ll recall intricate detail Ask me what I was wearing yesterday and I ll stare at you like you just grew two headsThankfully I do have a few notes in my book to refer back to Sadly the notes I have aren t very descriptiveIn all honesty it might be me with the roblem and not the book I think my love affair with studentteacher love affairs might finally be coming to an end why does this make me so sad I had a good run there for a while There s been a buzz book going around on my feed lately with a retty flashy multi colored something on it and Jace's Pet people are heralding it with 5 star reviewsbut it s another studentteacher book and the blurb looks exactly like something I ve read several times before So alas I might have toass on it Here were my random notesmarkings This is a dual PoV book If you like reading the male s PoV as the story unfolds you might enjoy thisI highlighted a The Mistake (Off-Campus, passage where Cooper was sitting across the street from Ali s house getting drunk spying on her Note Stalker much This note would be a spoiler so no go without tags view spoilernot a fan of marriageroposals in books when the heroine could still stand to grow up hide spoiler Dang I triedI really did When I started this story it kept my interest The relationship between Coop and Ali was decently developed and the mutual respect they showed one another was lovely Although once summer ended and they Piraten! parted ways that s where the story fell apart At least for meIt felt like the author was writing without an outline It became choppy and lacked flow as well as having a few editing issues with missing andor double words Even though Ms Steele attempted some serious drama at the end it was too cheeseball with the constant I love you s which never allowed the reader to feel like there could be road blocks ahead I had high hopes for this one but was left with an unrealisticerfectly tied bow instead I m sorry I just couldn t get into it The most upsetting thing about *this story is the lack of character development and the uick character relationship By chapter 4 both MC s *story is the lack of character development and the uick character relationship By chapter 4 both MC s confessed their undying love for one another There was little
"to no build "no build this relationship It literally went from week 1 of gawking to the initial hello to week 8 and confessing forever love You get tid bits of what apparently happened within those critical first few weeks later on in the book but it made no sense and I as a reader just didn t connect The lot was rather clich and retty The Complete Guide To Surfing Your Best predicable Coopers POV seemed to have too much of a femaleerspective I ve noticed that not all writers can From Tree Dwellings To New Towns pull off a male POV without it not feeling too laced with estrogen The ending was Ahh cute but really rushed The story dynamic was new I liked the idea but it wasn tulled off right Like what was the oint of maki.
