Currently, Trevor's sister, is busy raising two teenage kids and a college age cousin as well as Trevor's young and precocious 10 year old son, Miguel. Trevor knows that his older sister is a very responsible individual so he's surprised to hear that several notes sent home from his son's teacher have gone unanswered and now he must fly back to the states to deal with this "temporary setback."
Trevor is taken by surprise when he meets Miguel's teacher, Corey Hamilton. Corey is female, African American, young, attractive and hip. Unfortunately, while Corey might admire Trevor as a renowned filmmaker in the entertainment industry, she has nothing but contempt for him as a parent. She perceives him to be a neglectful, absentee father who's only concerned about money, status and fame. While Trevor takes offense to Corey's position, when he walks in on the chaos of his sister's household, he quickly realizes that he needs to take off time from jet-setting around the world in order to help his sister provide a male role model for his son and teenage nephew and prove to Corey that he's not the monster she made him out to be. To show that he's interested in his son's well-being...and to get to know Miguel's teacher better, Trevor decides to work on a school project which will require him to spend much time around Corey. Trevor and Corey both realize that they must set aside their differences in order to help Miguel and in doing so they find out that they actually like each other. But the path to love, marriage and the baby carriage will not be easy as twists and turns along the way threaten to destroy the budding relationship.
Love Lessons by Leslie Esdaile is entertaining and enlightening. Esdaile wows us with her trademark romance theme but she also teaches us lessons about love. The underlying theme in Love Lessons is "about finding balance, learning to balance one's career aspirations with a family, responsibility with desire, and struggle with surrender." It's about who your teachers are and what you are teaching others. Esdaile leaves us with much to ponder long after the story is finished. If you're looking for a romance novel with a social message then look no further than Love Lessons by Leslie Esdaile.
Her love and compassion for his son causes him to look at her as more than a teacher.
The way the relationship between the two develops is so phenomenal! They were definitely on the same level and were
surely meant to be together.
All the while, Trevor is dealing with the fact that he is fed up with being on the road and knows that he has to become a full time father to Miquel and father figure to his college student cousin and teenaged son and daughter of his sister, who has been Miquel's caretaker while he's been away working.
Although Trevor is almost forty years old, "Love Lessons" is still a coming of age story about a someone who matures and takes on the responsibility being a father, a lover and most of all, a man.
I loved this book!
