The third installment of RC Boldt s Teach Me series returns with two people who once had it all
Over a decade ago, fourth-grade teacher Tate Donnelly was attending college with the love of her life by her side. She had been certain, even then, that it was the forever kind of love. But she was proven wrong when he left her all alone to pick up the pieces of her life and heart when her entire world imploded.
Former Navy SEAL Miller Vaughn once had the love of a girl he thought would be his and be by his side forever. Unfortunately, that only lasted until after he joined the Navy. Then she vanished, never to be heard from again. Throwing himself into his training, he vowed to become the best, toughest SEAL he could be, and never let a girl get the best of him again.
Years later, a man who resembles a boy she once knew reappears in her life. A boy she had loved with her whole being. A boy who had eviscerated her heart.
Though much time has passed, Tate and Miller still feel that same pull they did years ago. When truths about the past are revealed, will they both be able to move on from their painful past or are they destined for heartbreak again?
Can they remember when their love was the most important thing in their world?
*Remember When is the third book in the Teach Me series, but can be enjoyed as a full-length, standalone romance.”
Miller and Tate’s relationship was a roller coaster, from the constant arguing present day to the flashbacks of letters they had continued to write to each other that they never received. The first thing you pick up on is that their relationship was sabotaged when Miller joined the military, they haven’t seen each other since Miller went to boot camp and each one believed the other quit on the relationship until meeting again when Miller’s boss, Foster, invited him to a family and friends dinner where Tate who was best friends with Foster’s sister Laney was also in attendance.
At first, as I read this I thought to myself I would have just gone straight to the source. But as it becomes clear that each one of them was told the other said they didn’t want to have anything to do with them, well it is easy to understand why in their circumstances they couldn’t and wouldn’t go out of their way for a head to head closure. In the present, as an onlooker, it is easy to sit back and think why don’t you do X or Y. But when you take the time to look at things from the character’s perspectives it is easy to see that the story progressed in the perfect manner.
I greatly enjoyed watching Tate and Miller’s journey. My only complaint is that I felt the individual responsible for sabotaging their relationship, to begin with, got a free pass. But that is just my opinion and I suppose I am not as forgiving a person as these two fine characters. I greatly have greatly enjoyed this latest installment in the Teach Me series and can’t wait for the next book.
