Synopsis: “Did you have relations with my brother . . .”
I’d like to preface this by saying it was never my intention to ever get involved in a workplace romance, let alone get involved with the most surly, agitating, and pompous man I’ve ever met who just so happens to be my new friend’s brother.
My intentions were to show students how English and reading books could actually be fun and make a new life for myself in the suburbs of Chicago.
But so far, I’ve managed to be called into the principal’s office.
Coerced into participating in the teacher’s badminton league.
And instigated into passionate fights with Arlo Turner over education and decorum while losing my underwear at the same time.
Known as Mr. Turns Me On, he’s the reason I might get fired from my first ever teaching job.
Review: Meghan Quinn can do no wrong! The things I love about her books are that she creates such interesting and fun characters, but also ensures to give them the most incredible support system in terms of friends. And for Greer and Arlo, their friends are truly the stars of this book. I mean… Gunner and Romeo on one side and Cora, Stella and Keiko on the other side and all together they’re just the best group of characters ever.
This enemies to lovers romance is great! I am absolutely bewitched by Greer Gibson and all that she is. She’s so quirky and fun, but also not your typical kind of girl either. There’s so much more to her than meets the eye at the strat. And Greer just unwraps layer after layer till you can’t help but fall in love with her. It’s clear why Arlo feels the way he does. She’s driven and determined, Greer knows what she wants and she’s not afraid to go out and get it and her teaching style might be different, but Greer believes in it and believes that it’ll make kids more interested in learning. How can you not love all of that in a character?
“She makes me feel things I’m not sure I’m ready for—hell, I know I’m not ready for. She makes me smile when she walks into a room, and that’s concerning.”
While I loved Greer, my feelings for Arlo are a little more confusing. I’m not entirely sure if I liked the character, but I liked how he was with his friends, with his sister and mostly, with Greer. On the whole, his reasons for being the way he is and the decisions he makes didn’t really work for me. But no doubt, he is one hell of a sexy character and seeing him through Greer’s eyes is a treat. There’s a reason they call him Mr. Turns Me On!
Meghan Quinn’s romances all have a healthy dose of comedy and in See Me After Class, the book treats you to a series of ridiculous pranks and text exchanges that will have you rolling in your seat. I gotta hand it to Gunner and Romeo for taking on the wrath of Arlo when these pranks start to unravel. Arlo’s revenge is pretty insane though and INCREDIBLY HOT too. Good lord, make sure you’re in a comfortable spot with a fan or fresh breeze, because you’re going to need it after what Arlo puts Greer through.
“I enjoy how unhinged he looks when he’s near me, how his hands itch to touch me.”
Greer and Arlo have burning hot chemistry. Even when they’re at each other’s throats, it’s just absolutely delicious. It’s a slow burn, with a few pauses along the way, but holy smokes when the characters finally get what they want, that’s just mind blowing. The gradual build up of their relationship and the slow burn of their romance all just made it so perfect. Especially since you get to experience all of the magic that comes with their friends group.
“You have me, Arlo. So come and get me.”
If you like Jane Austen, snorting water out of your nose laughter, a great group of friends, a brilliant female lead and a broody alpha male lead – then See Me After Class is most definitely for you. Plus, if you’re a Meghan Quinn fan, you have to read this book!
