Release Day Blitz Teach Me by Sloan Johnson

Title: Teach Me
Author: Sloan Johnson
Genre: Adult, Gay Romance
Published: December 2, 2014
Two words stripped Austin Pritchard of the privileged life he’s used to. The moment he uttered the words, “I’m gay,” he realized there is no such thing as unconditional love. Now, he’s gone from traveling the world with his family to living on the streets trying to figure out how he’s going to stay in school.

A chance opportunity changes everything. Austin impresses the foreman and lands a job, but even more, he catches the eye of David Becker, who is determined to teach him that true love doesn’t come with strings. 

The only thing David had as a child was love. His family struggled to keep food on the table and a roof over their heads. That has driven him to stay focused on his goals; become a tenured professor at a university and save enough money to build a home of his own. It’s not until he sees an insecure college student working on his new house that he realizes that he hasn’t planned on someone to share his life with. He’s about to learn that everything he’s already accomplished is nothing compared to the task of making Austin see that he is worthy of love.

When your family turns you back on you. The family you thought who would love you unconditionally and forever regardless of flaws or live choice. What do you do and how do you go on with you live?

I loved both of this men in this book. I fell in love with Austin and David they both took a piece of my heart. At the end of his first year of college Austin has no were to go. Packaging what he can carry on his back he leave the rest and walk away. No were to go, no family, no friends and no money Austin has no plan but to just walk. That day changed Austin and his out look on live an he meet Bree and Casey that night. Both took him under there wing and thought him the street and how to survive. Casey help Austin get a drop at a construction site for a weekend.

David has worked his entire live for this moment to be able to own a home back in home. To be able to live close to his best friend and have the live he has always want. As a child he didn't have much and he learned from a young age you have to work hard. When he lays eyes on Austin he feels drawn to him. He knows he broken  and he wants to help.

The two of them have so much to go through. Austin dealing with his family outlasting him. David knowing that Austin have something that he is holding back. But the chemistry between the two is unstoppable and nothing can keep the two apart.

Teach Me is a  story of healing, and forgiveness. It was told in both POV's and each pov was clear as to who was telling the story. You were able to get into each of there heads and I  loved it. I also loved the secondary character  Bree, I would love to get a story from her. The only this that drove me crazy from the story was how much Austin cried, I could have done with I little less of that. Other then that I loved this men.    

David overturns two buckets and sits on one of them. I cautiously follow suit and sit on the other. “Were you serious last night when you told Bill that you were interested in working for him this summer?” David asks.
“Yes, sir,” I respond, wondering why he’s asking me this. It’s not like it matters to him, but the way he leans in as he talks to me, I start to feel like he truly cares.
“Austin, you don’t have to call me sir. I’m just David, okay?” I nod and find a spot on the floor to hold my attention because I’m terrified to look into his eyes. He’s too close, too friendly, and already he makes me want things I shouldn’t with him. “Good. Now, I want you to come to dinner with me tonight.”
I stand so quickly that I kick the bucket out from behind me. Everything I’ve been thinking about David is obviously way the fuck off base because now he’s trying to bribe me. Fuck that. I storm down the driveway, ready to give up the only opportunity I’ve had to save myself because I’m not going to let anyone play games with me. Before I make it halfway to the street, David’s hand is wrapped around my arm, pulling me back.
The urge to spin around and deliver a jab to his chiseled jaw is somewhere just below the surface. I clench my eyes closed, taking a few breaths as I remind myself there’s no one to bail me out of jail if I do hit him and he presses charges.
“Get. Your hands. Off of me.” Rather than listen to my demand, David’s grip tightens when I try to jerk away from him. Now, I’m pissed. I turn on my heel and shove David away. “I don’t know what fucked up game you’re playing, but I’m not about to be your little bitch boy. If me working for Bill depends on me being at your beck and call, tell Bill I’ll find something else. I’m not a whore.
David stuffs his hands in the pockets of his oh-so-sexy, perfectly distressed jeans. And the arrogant fuck looks as if he’s about to laugh at me.
“Is that what you truly believe I am trying to do?” David asks. I swallow hard, regretting saying anything. No, I don’t really think David’s trying to buy me, but no other scenario makes any sense. “Austin, look at me.”
The tip of his finger crooks beneath my chin, forcing me to lift my gaze. What I see terrifies me more than the thought of trading my body for a job. David seems genuinely hurt by my accusation. Rather than apologize, I walk away. I’m not running this time, but I have to get someplace where I can sit before my knees buckle beneath me.
I sit on a boulder beside the house and David pushes me over as he settles back as well. “Austin, what is this about? Have I done something to offend you or make you feel uncomfortable?”
Has he? No. Yes. Fuck, I don’t know anymore. If I sit back and really think about it, he’s been nothing but kind to me. “No. Don’t mind me, it’s been a rough month and I’m a bit stressed.” I chew at the inside of my lip to stop myself from saying anything else. David can’t know why I’m stressed. Yes, I’m ashamed of my life as it is right now, but if no one else knows, I don’t have to see the pity in their eyes.

Sloan Johnson is a big city girl trapped in a country girl’s life. While she longs for the hustle and bustle of New York City or Las Vegas, she hasn’t yet figured out how to sit on the deck with her morning coffee, watching the deer and wild turkeys in the fields while surrounded by concrete and glass.

When she was three, her parents received their first call from the principal asking them to pick her up from school. Apparently, if you aren’t enrolled, you can’t attend classes, even in Kindergarten. The next week, she was in preschool and started plotting her first story soon after.

Later in life, her parents needed to do something to help their socially awkward, uncoordinated child come out of her shell and figured there was no better place than a bar on Wednesday nights. It’s a good thing they did because this is where she found her love of reading and writing. Who needs socialization when you can sit alone in your bedroom with a good book?

Now, Sloan is a tattooed mom with a mohawk and two kids. She’s been kicked out of the PTA in two school districts and is no longer asked to help with fundraisers because she’s been known to lose herself with a good book and forget she has somewhere to be.
