In Teach Me by Ella Sheridan, Jess Kingston has recently broken up with her violent boyfriend, Brit Holbrooke. She is determined to put her life back together and move on. When Brit confronts her outside of a coffee shop, private security specialist Conlan James comes to her rescue. Conlan encourages her to take self-defense classes from his company. As the chemistry ignites between Conlan and Jess, Brit ramps up his stalking. Can Conlan keep Jess safe from Brit?
I thoroughly enjoyed this book!!! This is the first time I have ever read anything by this author. Believe me, it won’t be the last time either. The chemistry between Jess and Conlan is super hot. I contemplated turning my AC back on even though it is chilly here in the Midwest. The connection between the two adds to the heat in the bedroom.
I also enjoyed how the two had seen each other at a local coffee shop for weeks prior to meeting. Conlan even goes out of his way to get coffee just to catch a glimpse of Jess. Sheridan lets the reader know that these two have been fantasizing about each other for weeks. Who hasn’t done that in real life?
The suspense in this book was great. The reader never knew when or if Brit would strike again. Just when you think Conlan has Jess safe, Brit comes out of nowhere. I stayed up past my bedtime just to see what would happen. Overall, this is an awesome start to a new series. Readers who love romantic suspense will devour this book. I am definitely looking forward to the next installment in this series.

A woman determined to heal…
Shy researcher Jess Kingston spent the last eight weeks recovering from her ex-boyfriend’s brutal attack. Body healed, she’s ready to put her life back together—except her ex isn’t ready to let go. She won’t cower in a corner while Brit tortures her, but she’s powerless to fight back.
A man determined to resist…
Ex-military security specialist Conlan James avoids commitment like the plague. His job, his Harley, and the occasional one-night stand are all he needs, until the day he rescues Jess from a tense situation and realizes he can’t get her off his mind. He can teach her to protect herself, but protecting his heart is another matter.
A madman determined to win…
As the deadly game of cat-and-mouse with Brit heats up, so does the hunger between Con and Jess. Safety might be found in numbers, but in bed, all bets are off—and the wrong move could lead to heartbreak. Or death.
