Carlyle's characters are well-defined and realistically complicated, especially Alex, her brother and her mother, and the writing style is smooth, fluid and assured. Lessons in Love has a feel-good and compelling plot that could easily be made into a movie. It's most highly recommended! --Readers' Favorite
Clarissa Carlyle's story is written in an uncomplicated style. The plot moves along at a good pace as the story explores what could happen when a young teacher and eighteen-year-old pupil fall in love with each other. They know this is a violation of trust and boundaries - but, of course, feelings are feelings, and they know to hold back until Alex finishes school. A gentle and positive story about facing and coming to terms with trauma and finding a love that enables healing and eventually moving forward in a healthy way. --Readers' Favorite
Loved it! I found myself absolutely loving this story. The romance was done in such a respectful way that I have to applaud the author. I really enjoyed this book because it shows how easily your life can change from one extreme to another. How in a blink of an eye it can all change. --Book Happiness
I read this book in one night, I just couldn't stop reading, sometimes it reminded me of Aria and Ezra's story from Pretty Little Liars, but it was so much lovely and with a dark side that made it unique. --Vanessa King
It's hard enough being a high school student. Add popularity, cheerleading and a very troubling past and it's almost impossible. Come along, one very sexy math teacher and the story just gets better. Very well done. --Anita Scott Shofneron
I SO SO SO LOVE THIS BOOK! Lessons in Love is the first book in this incredible series about an emotionally wounded young woman and the forbidden fruit that draws her into the despair and wonder of first love! --Cxandra
Love is definitely the theme of this book, and although this book could come across as just a sweet coming of age book in the beginning, it is not. It definitely has a nice HEA but it has real life problems for a girl that has been handed a tough set of cards in life, and lessons in love and growth and dreams. Enjoyable easy read and will be reading the next in the series. --Amazon Customer
This is the first in a collection of amazing books and I have to say that I love each and every one of them, the way that this book starts the story and then leaves you wanting more is just amazing. I recommend everybody read this and the ones that follow, trust me when I say that you will be gripped from the moment you read the first page. --Atlanta Whitlock
Wasn't sure I would like it because of the teacher/student issue. But the characters are lovely and it addresses a much deeper issue in a sensitive manner. --Loves Britcoms
Tragic yet heart-warming --A Reader's Perspective
Adored this book. It's funny, touching and very relatable no matter our age because we ALL have been there. Read and enjoy. --Books4me
One of the best Student/Teacher books I have read. --Paula L. Phillips

It's a really sweet story about an 18 year old that went through a huge trauma and is trying to start over in her new school, pretending to be someone completely different from who she was.
Her disguise won't last long after her new math teacher put her on detention and slowly discovers her secret.
I read this book in one night, I just couldn't stop reading, sometimes it reminded me of Aria and Ezra's story from Pretty Little Liars, but it was so much lovely and with a dark side that made it unique.
I'm really looking forward to read Letters of Love, and I think I found a new favorite romance author :)
Alex is your typical high school cheerleader, well cheerleader captain really, or is she? Alex is hiding a lot of secrets from her friends, teachers, family and maybe even from herself. She has had a complete turn around in her life when something happens to her father and now she is trying to find herself again. She has friends, but no one that knows or understands the true Alex...until a new math teacher comes to the school. Mr. Simmons is cute, smart and can see right through Alex and her half truths....
The storyline is a good one, the plot flows and the end leaves the reader wanting more. The reason that I gave this book a 4 star review instead of a 5 star is because I felt as if the author could have made some of the dialogue more realistic, the idea of getting into Princeton at the last minute with terrible grades was a bit much and the fact that the reader only gets to see bits and pieces of the "real" Alex (who is much more enjoyable and likable) make me want more of that part of the story....not the fluff...and then the letter from Mr. Simmons makes the reader want to yell, scream and hit something in frustration...
This is a good book and I will be checking out the next one to see what happens once Alex starts college and is on her own with people that she can start fresh with. I recommend that you add this to your TBR list - you will enjoy it and you will think about after you have finished reading it - so add it today and see what you think.
