Release Blitz for Like You by Rachel Leigh

Title: Like You
Series: Redwood High #2
Author: Rachel Leigh
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 25, 2020


I’ve got everything going for me—the grades, the scholarship, the goals. I’ve had it all planned out for years. Then she came along. On the outside she has it all together—on the inside she’s damaged goods. She needs me. I just have to decide if she’s worth everything I’m about to lose. 

I came to this town to escape the claws of my past. A simple life in a small town—I just want to live under the radar and blend in. I was doing just that until Knox caught my eye. They say when you know, you know—that we can’t help who we fall in love with. The rules are pretty simple, so why am I breaking them all? I’m a teacher, and he’s my student—this can’t end well. More than just rules are going to be broken. I just hope his heart can be mended when it’s all said and done.

My heart is banging on the walls of my chest, as I stand here with my breasts and my ass hanging out of my silk nightgown. Knox watches me like he’s waiting for me to make a move and grab the blanket that lies at my feet. I look down at it, but I’m frozen in place. 

I force myself not to look up. Not to look over at the perfectly sculpted body that stands just a few feet away from—more so, the bulge that’s growing in his boxers. I keep my head down, struggling to speak. “I...I’m sorry, I thought the house would be empty. If I had known you were staying here...”
“Don’t apologize,” he interrupts me. Walking over to my side, he bends over, reaching for the blanket. I can feel the burn of his eyes singe down my body, as he reaches for it, starting with my breasts and ending at my toes. He comes back up, and if my heavy breathing weren’t a big enough sign of my pent-up sexual deprivation, my trembling legs are. 

With one hand, he swings the blanket over my shoulders and the scent of whiskey and sweet cinnamon rolls off of him. I can tell he’s had enough liquor to intoxicate us both, as he stumbles to the side. I place a helping hand on him to catch his fall, as he slowly lowers down to a sitting position on the all-white sofa. “Are you alright?”
 “I’m golden. Feeling pretty damn good right about now.” His bloodshot eyes fight to stay open. 

“You don’t look so good. Let me get you some water.” I attempt to walk away, but his hand on my wrist has me frozen once again. I look down at his fingers wrapped around me and feel enamored by his touch. 

He’s a kid, Claire. Stop this. 

I’m not sure why Knox has this effect on me. It’s like nothing I’ve ever felt before. It’s so wrong, but everything about being near him feels so right. He’s like a drug that I want to inhale, just to see how it makes me feel. It could destroy me—or, it can free me from myself. 

He uses his grip on me to pull himself up. “Knox,” I mutter into the empty space between us. 

He takes a step closer and leans in, his chest pressed against mine, as he whispers in my ear, “Don’t go.” 

Review by Gia:
Like You is book two in the Redwood High series.   Each book covers a different couple and can be read as as standalone.   I had a little trouble getting into this one but once it clicked with me I didn't wan to put it down.  I think my problem at first getting into the story was that Claire and Knox seemed so far apart that I don't see how they would transition to  a relationship but the author did a great job doing that smoothly.   Claire is running from her past.  With the help of a friend she is able to set up a new life in a new town as a high school art teacher.  What she's severity of what /who she is running from comes out in pieces in the story.   Claire is a strong character.   Knox is her student.  He's a good guy but I wasn't really of fan of some of his friends.  Claire and Knox have a connection.   They're good together but the have to sneak around.  Just when Claire and Knox are doing good, her past catches up with her and there are a lot of surprises that come with that.  
4 Stars!
