Eighteen-year-old, Bronwyn Littleton is in love with a stranger she met on a summer night a year ago. A stranger who was tall and broad in a way that made her feel safe. He had dark blue eyes that she can’t stop drawing in her sketch book. And he had a deep, soothing voice that she can’t stop hearing in her dreams. That’s all she knows about him though. Until she runs into him again. At St. Mary’s School for Troubled Teenagers – an all girls reform school – where she’s trapped because of a little crime she committed in the name of her art. Now she knows that her dream man has a name: Conrad Thorne. She knows that his eyes are way bluer and way more beautiful than she thought. And that his face is an artist’s wonderland. But she also knows that Conrad is her best friend’s older brother. Which means he’s completely off-limits. Not to mention, he’s the new soccer coach, which makes him off-limits times two. What makes him off-limits times three however, and this whole scenario an epic tragedy, is that, Conrad, Wyn’s dream man, has a dream girl of his own. And he’s as much in love with his dream girl as Wyn is in love with him… NOTE: This is a STANDALONE set in the world of St. Mary’s.

Plot Summary :

Bronwyn has never had an easy life. Feeling like she was suffocating in her own home, she never knew the joy of following her own passions. That is until one fateful night she met the man of her dreams. The one who pushed her to follow her dreams. And eventually got her landed into the girl's prison, st. Mary's school. Time passed but never forgot about him, until one day she met her new soccer coach. Her best friend's oldest brother. The man she idealized. The one who didn't remember her at all. Her dream man.

All Conrad knew was to sacrifice. He had his dreams but then a part of him knew that he was shooting for the stars so he gave up. He lives for others because no one ever gave him the chance to live for himself. That is until he gets a new job at his little sister's high school. And meets her friend. Being with Bronwyn is everything wrong in his vocabulary. He is the person who never breaks the rules. The one who is always maintained but Wyn makes him break it all and now nothing will be the same again.

Overall Opinion :

Omg, I have been waiting for Coach Throne forever!! Ever since I got a glimpse of His story in Reed's book I have been crazy and holy shit, this one was good. Like Conrad was everything I imagined and so much more. I absolutely loved it so much!

The storyline was perfect and don't even get me started on the dirty scenes. So freaking good . The ending had me bawling and even though I wanted to smack Conrad sometimes, I still love him a lot. And now the best freaking part!! That Mr. Marshall reveal???!!! YOU ALL ARE NOT READY BABIESSSSS. It's just crazy. Sooo good. I am dying ughhh, can it be next year already?!

Definitely recommending this book to all those angsty contemporary Student teacher romance loving people out there! Coath Thorne is a teacher you don't want to miss reading about!
