Review: This story is forbidden love gone good. Okay we will admit at first we had a very hard time dealing with Max being Wilson’s teacher. We don’t care how close in age they are there’s just some lines you shouldn’t cross. But then it happened we began to root for them to be together. Their sneaky moments just melted our hearts and made us fall deeply in love with Max. He can be our teacher any day. This book had it all including the mean spoiled girl you just want to slap. Wilson herself is great. She’s been through so much, but she still manages to brush things off. Her innocent mind and likable characteristics makes you really care for her. The secondary characters are great too and really help the story move along, even the mean girl Cindy. The romance between Max and Wilson is a bit rush, but at the same time very believable. Remember as a teenager it didn’t take you long to fall in love. This book will keep you up at night with thoughts of Max. He’s just yummy. This book is a good beginning to what looks to be a great series. We can’t wait to read the next book. We have to find out what will happen between Max and Wilson.
So sit by the fire and read Wilson Mooney, Almost eighteen.
