***Schooled by Deena Bright Blog Tour Stop and Giveaway***


The horrifying shock of witnessing her husband banging his skank-whore secretary spurred this ever-wholesome and rule-following teacher to seek some new lessons of her own. A young teacher learns about sexuality, pleasure, and satisfaction from rather unlikely and forbidden teachers, her former students, now recent college graduates. Not only does she get “schooled” by the beautifully-built all-American football player who struggled to pass her class, but she also learns a few tricks from the innocent, well-read, and thoroughly sexy bookworm. Both men teach her that not all curricula worth learning comes from a book.

Go through the journey Janelle Garrity-Flowers faces after discovering her husband’s infidelity. Growing up, she followed the rules, but now, she wants to defy the norms and play by her own rules. Janelle explores her own sexuality, searching for pleasure beyond her wildest dreams. However, despite this callow teacher’s “lesson plan” of forgoing the rules and not letting emotion get involved, the teacher must decide between the athlete, the scholar, and the career she loves. But what or who does she love and want more?

“I know, but that just sucks.  This has been the luckiest two weeks for you; I’m so jealous.” Char whined back. “First you get rid of that Fuck, then you have two young studs pining for you, and now New York and Jasper’s money.  I wanna be you.”  I loved talking to her; she always made me feel so good about myself.  Leave it to her to think that the end of my marriage was one of the best things that ever happened to me, something to be jealous of.  Maybe it was pretty great; things seemed pretty great.  I loved Char; everyone should get to have a Char in her life.  Leo wasn’t into me; Briggs, mmmm, Briggs.
Once we hung up, I looked in the mirror, pulled up my shirt, scrutinizing my stomach.  Flab. Jasper was right; it was time to start working on my body.  I’d started swimming when I moved in here.  What? Like three times.  Fine, I’d do a yoga video before bed, let it relax me, and help this jello belly at the same time.  I never understood how a flat stomach could still be so flabby.  Wasn’t it enough that I was eating right, somewhat right, and making sure I didn’t put on a ton of weight?  I knew so many wives and mothers who let themselves go once they got married and had kids.  I didn’t want to be like that.  A lot of good that did me now.
About 20 minutes in to my video, I was feeling pretty good, yet extremely sore from lack of practice.  I was in the infamous downward dog position when there was a knock on the window behind me.   I looked through my legs, making out Briggs’ silhouette in the dark.  I motioned for him to come around; the door was unlocked.  
“Don’t mind me, I’m enjoying the view,” he swooned as he walked through the door.  “Mm…mm…mm…, really enjoying the view.”  He sat down on the couch right behind me, watching me.
“Oh, I don’t think so, get your butt down here and stretch with me.”  I grunted through the rest of the held position.
“Nah thanks, I’m good.”  He sat back, putting his hands behind his head, grinning from ear to ear.  He looked good, too good.  He had on jeans, nice-fitting jeans, not the baggy, hanging half-way down his butt kind.  The jeans were perfect on him.  He had on a fitted turquoise v-neck, tucked in, his sleeves folded and pushed to his elbows.  The shirt was that thin-flimsy material that only well-built, muscle-y men could pull off.  And he could certainly pull it off.  He had a grey t-shirt under the turquoise shirt.  The blue and gray shirts brought the blue out in his eyes.  He was beautiful, mesmerizing really.   Yummy.
“I don’t think you understand Briggs Alexander.  Get down here and stretch with me, young man.”  I used my teacher look and voice.  “Now.” 
“Ah man, I came here to take you out, maybe get a drink, dance a little.”  He was whiny and cute, as he pulled off his shirt.  “I don’t wanna get all hot and sweaty.”
“Now Briggs, that disappoints me.  Are you sure you’re not still planning on getting hot and sweaty with me tonight?”  I got up and walked over to him, slowly.  He was staring at me, wearing my sports bra and my boy-cut Victoria’s Secret tight, booty shorts.  

Jenn's Review:

I bought and read this book about a month after it was released and as soon as it was over, I couldn’t wait to find out was happens next! This book is so sexy, sweet and funny. And when I say sexy, I mean SEXY!

Janelle Flowers is devoted to her husband. So much so that when it’s been 82 days since they’ve had any hanky panky, she is ready to find out why he hasn’t touched her and what they can do about it. Well, she get the shock of her life when she walks in on Marcus and his secretary getting it on in their house, in their bed! Not saying a word she heads out to a bar to wallow in misery. No more Flowers for her, soon she’ll be Janelle Garrity again.

 As luck would have it, she runs into a former student. Briggs Alexander is so hot and confident that just talking to him makes her sweat. The former football star also lets it be known that he wants her and in a bad way. But when he is finally getting his chance, he leaves her hanging. So class is in session and it’s time that Briggs get some lessons on how to please a woman. Fabulous stuff right here! I think we all could learn a thing or two from this book.

Janelle has to take a trip to New York for her brother along with someone from his company. That someone is Sarah, another former student. Sarah is a lesbian and tries to explain to Janelle what the difference was for her, being with a man versus a woman. They have a great night out and having drank several martinis, Janelle get a little hot and bothered with Sarah’s explanations. They both decide they will have their fun together and they each receive something they both needed but didn’t realize they missed.

Cue the entrance of Leo Cling, former nerdy guy that isn’t so nerdy anymore! He’s funny, attentive, strong and gorgeous! What’s a girl to do? Now Janelle can’t stop thinking about Leo or Briggs. And where she was giving Briggs his lessons, Leo lets her know that he’s been doing some studying of his own. Oh good grief! Can he be anymore perfect? Not to mention, he also came to her rescue when Marcus, the lying, cheating bastard, was trying to man-handle her. Leo is a little slow on the take though and almost loses his chance. And I tell you, you really need to read how he redeems himself. Cue the sexy times!!

Janelle now has two wonderful, sweet, sexy guys fighting for her attention and she has no idea what she’s going to do. Things get a bit more complicated when another student, Vince, tries to weasel his way in and Janelle is not having it. So to get back at her, he proceeds to cause a shit storm of trouble. Janelle is at risk of losing her job and her reputation. And at the same time, she loses both Briggs and Leo. They don’t want to share and she can’t choose between the two. I get you, Janelle. I wouldn’t be able to choose either! The boys have a plan though. They had no idea that the other one wasn’t seeing Janelle and they both decided they couldn’t live without her. We get a little taste of what’s in store but I wanted so much more!!

As if you couldn’t tell, I really enjoyed this book! The humor between friends, the love of family and the discovery of new relationships is wrapped up in this gift. I can’t wait to see what happens next with this trio. And, I really REALLY want to see Marcus go down in flames, just like his ping pong table! I hope you enjoy this book, like I did!

  1. hmmmm....favorite teacher...i guess it would have to be my freshmen yr English teacher. She was so oool and layed back..and if u didnt understand something she was more than welling to help understand.

    Thanks for the giveaway! This book has me intrigued and ill be adding it to my TBR list :)

  2. My favorite teacher was actually my gym teacher/history is Hig School. He loved spending time with his students....guiding us in the right directions. He used sports as a way to keep kids off the streets and helped them understand that excelling at sports could give you amazing opportunities. He died our junior year and it was very hard on all of his students

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. Favorite Teacher in high school was Mr. Brown. He was so laid back and real. We could be ourselves around him and he accepted us for who we were.

  4. My favorite HS teach was Mrs. Tremblay who taught English. I had her 3 years in a row and she was amazing, always helping and pushing you to do your best.

  5. My favorite teacher growing up was Mr. Maz because he treated everyone equally and made class fun. He was a math teacher (@6th grade), and never singled out or embarrassed any students but rather created tricks and tips for his students to "get it". I never had a problem with math, but he taught me that there are different ways to teach someone how to do something/anything, to treat everyone with respect and have fun in all aspects of life. Anything can be turned into a game and be fun if you have the right attitude!

  6. My favorite teacher was Mrs. Anderson, 2nd grade. She treated me so good, I remember just loving her.

  7. My 12th grade history teacher was really cool. She was all about women's lib and came of age in the 60's. There's this story about her and some go-go boots, but I don't remember if she ever confirmed that one ; )
