Book Description

Sixteen-year-old Sasha Douglas appears to be like most other teenagers, at least on the surface. Those around her would say she's quiet and keeps to herself, but there's nothing extraordinary about her. They certainly wouldn't know anything of the pain she carries inside and the burden it's placed on her young shoulders. A chance of fate brings 24-year-old Eve Walton into her life as her new English teacher. Eve notices straightaway that something is wrong with Sasha, something dark buried beneath her carefully constructed exterior, and she makes an effort to get to know her troubled pupil, hoping that she might be able to help in some way to alleviate the girl's suffering. The friendship that blossoms between them goes beyond what either could have hoped for or expected, but will it end in peril when they realize their feelings go deeper than they should? Will Eve be able to maintain a professional distance and still help Sasha on the way to healing?

3.0 out of 5 stars I was bored reading it 10 July 2014

I was expecting much more from this book. Lacks intensity. Just wanted the book to end not because I couldn't wait for it to end. I was bored reading it.

I preferred this to 'Rinse' by Ciara Miller. A good read, not too long and language not as flowery as in 'Rinse' as though she is more comfortable with her writing style in 'Selfless'. Good characters, happy ending.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great to begin with.. 29 Oct. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
When I read the description if this book I was so glad to have found a story like it, it all started out with such a good story line and I couldn't put it down. But as the story went on I began to find the whole story slightly unrealistic and pretty predictable!

I liked the story, sweet, but I'm not sure it is very realistic...
I also thought that the beginning was better written than the end...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good effort but... 27 Jun. 2014
By Sam - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My biggest pet peeve is when authors use descriptive words instead of the character's name. This book doesn't do that as much as some I've read but just enough to take me out of the story long enough to try and remember who is the blonde? The taller woman, the redhead, etc. These descriptions aren't necessarily after establishing the characters at the beginning of the book.
The story itself is okay but leaves a lot of loose ends and the characters aren't developed well. I never really understood the character's motivation for doing a lot of what did and the story was all over the place at times. Good effort though. I just think the author needs a really good editor to help smooth things out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it 14 Jun. 2014

Wasn't sure if I would like this one since it was a teacher/student relationship but glad I brought it. This is the second book I read by this author and will be looking for more. Eve was just great especially still trying to give your lover time to find themselves and to be there for their return.
2.0 out of 5 stars Just. No. 30 Oct. 2014
By Joanne G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This was a total waste of time and money because the writing is awful. The main characters are not likeable at all. Sasha is a self-centered teen who not only gets pregnant after she's rejected by her love interest, but leaves her infant behind to "grow up." Meanwhile, her former teacher/lover-turned-nanny pines for her return. Sasha's professional success is unbelievable, and the most annoying part is her angst and alcohol abuse as she "grows up." Yes, there's a happy ending, but it wasn't worth the wait to get to the last page. The best part about this book was its cute cover.
