Love Lessons, take a seat, listen and learn 31 Aug. 2001
By ReadinDiva - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book was too good to put down. Before I knew it, it was time for me to go to work at 5 a.m.
This story was not just about the love between a man and a woman, but also the love and sacrifices that are made when you unconditionally love someone. The story revolves around single parent and absentee dad Trevor, his 8 yr old son Miguel, who is being raised by Trevor's sister, Gretchen along with her own children and Miguel's teacher, Corey.
The main storyline involves that man/woman/child love. From the first meeting of Trevor and Corey you know there is going to be some fireworks and serious lessons in love to be learned. Trevor sees the love that Corey has for his child, and can't help but fall in love with her. The love scenes between the couple are almost heartstopping. You will have to keep reminding yourself to breathe.
The secondary story involves Trevor's sister Gretchen and her children. Gretchen,who has denied herself every pleasure shows unconditional and sacrificial love for her children. The discussions between Gretchen and Trevor, as brother and sister, were lessons in love that Trevor had forgotten existed. This book is one that you will want to read over again. The interactions within the family will make you feel as though you are a part of the gang. Definitely a keeper!

Life Is About Learning Valuable Lessons! 13 April 2002
By The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Trevor Winston is a film-producer who has spent the last eight years of his professional life globetrotting around the world producing films/videos. In that same timespan, Trevor has married, had a child, divorced and had to deal with the death of his ex-wife and mother. While Trevor has been busy working and making big bucks so that he could provide financially for his young son, he has neglected to take care of his son's emotional needs. Because of his traveling due to his career, Trevor left the care of his son in the hands of his wife, mother and then his sister.
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.

"Lesson Learned" 25 Oct. 2001
By free4lyfe - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I loved this book. Trevor Winston an independent film maker that works mostly with music artist on their videos is a man of deep conviction. Corey Hamilton is a teacher passionate about the welfare of her students. Trevor has been an absent father to his son because of his work, he has left the raising of Miquel for his parents before their death and afterwards to his sister. However, a change is about to come. Trevor has been summoned after a series of notes that have gone unanswered by his sister from Miquel's teacher. Corey is intrigued and angered by Trevor's appearance at school to check on his son, she verbally assaults him about his lack of parenting then sends him away to lick his wounds. Trevor has never felt so dehumanized yet captivated by a woman, he comes up with a plan to make amends for the callousness of his responsiblity to his son.
Corey and Trevor are drawn to one another and will not play games about that attraction, Corey is the only woman that has made Trevor want to truly settle down and reevaluate his globetrotting lifestyle. Now, with his family and the project that has him involved with Corey's class to produce their own documentary, Trevor is finally feeling as if he has come home.
I loved the sensual primal visions Ms Esdaile used describing Trevor's pursuit for the woman of his heart. The story touched on so many levels, speaking to teenagers feeling pressured by society as well as peers to fit in, single parents trying to set an example for their children while struggling to maintain a shred of life solely their own and on being a good neighbor for those around us. The secondary characters were an integral part of this book, Scott, Miquel, Janelle, Samantha, Trevor's sister Gretchen, even Miss Cleo who sees all and knows just as much. This book is a definite lesson on love at all levels.

WONDERFUL!!!!!!! 22 Aug. 2002
By TinkTink** - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Love lessons tells the story of Trevor who is a music video director and Corey who is his son's(Miquel)fifth grade teacher.
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!
