Preservation by Rachel Wade


Kate has no time for meaningless romantic charades, and definitely no time for hot college professors who are full of themselves and smitten with her. Constantly battling eviction notices, tuition she can’t afford, and a sick, dependent mother, the last thing she needs is to be distracted with someone else’s complicated baggage.

When she stumbles into Ryan Campbell’s creative writing class, he is only “Mr. Campbell” to her, until Ryan finds himself captivated by her writing and she is forced to face their mutual attraction. His cocky know-it-all syndrome is enough to send her running in the other direction, and his posse of female admirers and playboy reputation are enough to squander any odds in her favor.

But underneath Ryan’s abrasive fa├žade is something to behold, and she can’t stay away for long. Ryan and Kate must decide who they’re willing to become and fight against their former selves if they want to make things work. That’s if academia, vicious vixens, old skeletons, and their own mastery at self-destruction don’t pummel their efforts first.

My Quick Review:

What is it with books about self-destructive people in relationships with other self-destructive people?! My goodness, these books are everywhere!

With that said, I did enjoy Preservation and the characters. I wouldn’t say that I loved it or that it’s fantastic but it’s a good read.

Overall Rating: 3.5 out of 5

    1. I was wondering how you made the jump from Preservation to Once Upon a Time but it has to be the apple. Right?

  2. Yup, I felt the same thing. The plot is so tantalizing and taboo, a student falling for her teacher but the execution was a bit spotty.

    1. A lot of people absolutely fawned over this book. It is good but I'm kind of glad I'm not the only one who didn't rate it a 5* book

  3. I just read another book about teacher/ student. They all sound so HOT and then it just ends up being a huge let down! lol I am eventually going to find one that is awesome!
