Loving Mr. Daniels

At a first glance:

What I love: The cover is what first grabbed my attention. It’s beautiful.
What I hate: The title. I just thought it was silly.

While reading Loving Mr. Daniels I found myself laughing and then on the verge of tears in the next breath. So much about this book was tragic and heartbreaking but through it all is a beautiful story. I’ve never really been into the teacher/student romance so that wasn’t the draw for me- though I did enjoy it because of how deeply I fell for the characters. Sometimes a book leaves me feeling speechless, this book did just that. Brittainy C. Cherry did an amazing job of storytelling and making characters that you couldn’t help but root for. I look forward to reading much more of her work!

Here’s the book blurb from Goodreads. Seriously I challenge you to read the blurb and not fall in love with the story.

To Whom it May Concern,

It was easy to call us forbidden and harder to call us soulmates. Yet I believed we were both. Forbidden soulmates.

When I arrived to Edgewood, Wisconsin I didn’t plan to find him. I didn’t plan to stumble into Joe’s bar and have Daniel’s music stir up my emotions. I had no clue that his voice would make my hurts forget their own sorrow. I had no idea that my happiness would remember its own bliss.

When I started senior year at my new school, I wasn’t prepared to call him Mr. Daniels, but sometimes life happens at the wrong time for all the right reasons.

Our love story wasn’t only about the physical connection.

It was about family. It was about loss. It was about being alive. It was silly. It was painful. It was mourning. It was laughter.

It was ours.

And for those reasons alone, I would never apologize for loving Mr. Daniels.
