Review: Teachers Act 2

For this review, I chose Teachers Act 2 by R.L. Merrill.  This is the second book in the Hollywood Rock n' Romance Triology.  The first book is called Teacher, which I read and loved.

I received a copy of the ebook for a honest review of this book.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
In Teacher, Jesse Martin and Danny Black find a love that neither of them ever thought possible under the most unusual circumstances. Many obstacles stood in the way of their budding romance, including their student-teacher relationship, an unstable ex-wife, and the question of whether Danny’s voice would ever be rock-ready again. But when Danny’s 12 year-old daughter Jane removes the most important obstacle by giving them her blessing, it's time to celebrate. The Second Act finds these two lovers navigating a fresh relationship with new roles and expectations. Together they share new experiences that bring them closer, and really bring on the heat. Danny works at chipping away the wall Jesse has built to protect herself and she tries to keep him grounded as Blackened heads to the studio to record their masterpiece. Then life places new obstacles in the way of our adoring couple. Jesse’s health takes a turn for the worse, Danny scrambles to finish school, and a meddling mom sticks her nose in where it doesn’t belong making Jesse question, once again, whether or not she’ll ever fit into Danny’s world. A whirlwind turn of events brings them closer, then threatens to tear them apart. Will their new love survive the insanity that is Danny’s life? Will Jesse fight to keep her new family together? Will Cosmo accept that Sunday Shower Day is detrimental to his love life? These questions and more will be explored in Teacher: The Second Act.


This book continues where book #1, Teacher, left off with a cliffhanger!! I love the story of Danny and Jesse.  How cute are they together?  Once again, the characters leap off of the pages.  This is in Jesse's POV and I love it, but I wish we could know Danny's POV.  

Now we see how they both handle being together and dealing with life challenges.  Danny's ex-wife decides she can not take care of their daughter, Jane, anymore so she gives Danny full custody.  How would you react if your boyfriend's daughter had to move in with him?  If you love him, then you would love her.  Right?  Well, we hope!

Jesse has this wall built around her.  She needs to start tearing it down so Danny and Jane can get to the other side of the wall.  Jesse has 2 issues with Danny's life.  One, he has money.  Jesse is used to scraping by.  Face it, they are polar opposite when it comes to money.  Two, Jesse does not want anyone to take care of her, which is what Danny wants to do.  She is used to doing everything on her own.  Now Jesse has Danny and his daughter, Jane, who is so cute.  I believe that Jesse not wanting to move in with Danny and his daughter is for a good reason.  She does not want to set a bad example for his daughter.  I can get this a lot.  Being raised Catholic, I was told a lot that you had to be married to a man before you lived with one.  Being a young girl, his daughter is impressible.   She may one day say to both Jesse and her dad "hey, you lived with Jesse before you both got married!"

Will Jesse accept Danny's support?  Will Jesse break down that wall?  I think they can work through this.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
