High school teacher Kelly Finch is
furious when Mr. Hallstrom, the principal, tells her that
her class will be used to search out active gang members in
the school. She is partnered with Lieutenant Jared “Mac”
McNally whose arrogant and cynical attitude just rubs her
the wrong way. If only he didn’t attract her so much she
could concentrate on what needed to be done and actually get
the assignment done.
Mac immediately rises to the
challenge when Kelly protests against using her class for
his operation. She sees him as a judgmental person who is
out to trap her students before they’ve had a chance to
escape their terrible home lives. Their tempers rise as they
both refuse to back down, but so does their passion. When
they disagree on a certain student, Kelly lets her pride
influence a decision that could put her in grave danger.
Covert Lessons by Mari Carr was an interesting
read. The storyline was fast-paced and easy to relate to.
Mac and Kelly’s tempers soon give way to a push and pull
passion they try to put off in order to keep up professional
ethics. When they spend time together, learning the
backgrounds on Kelly’s students, a deep friendship and bond
is formed. The sexual chemistry between the two characters
eventually explodes and it is scorching! I loved the flow of
the story and the ending was thrilling. I could not put it
down. Ms. Carr did a fantastic job.
