Review of Teaching The Teacher's Pet by Sarah Sutton


When the popular crowd at Brentwood High votes me Most Likely To: Marry A Math Book, I’m ready to put my ruler into the eye of any egotistical jock who comes near me.

Including the idolized Bobcats football player, Connor Bray, when he asks me to tutor him.

His only requirement?

Our tutoring sessions must be top-secret—meaning that because Connor is too embarrassed to be seen with the resident math geek, I can’t even tell my boyfriend I’m helping Brentwood High’s all-star player.

And I’m about to tell him where he can stick his protractor when the principal steps in, saying that if I agree to help Connor pass his makeup test—and keep him on the team to lead Brentwood to the State Championships—she’ll reinstate the valedictorian award I’d been striving for my entire life.

Brentwood High’s finest, cornering its top student with bribery.

But there is one thing Connor might have to offer in return—love advice to recapture the spark with my ever-distant boyfriend. Connor, who keeps the student body mesmerized just by flashing a forearm, is bound to have a good game plan, right?

Except when Connor begins to give me lessons in love—and his demonstrations are breathtakingly thorough—it starts to feel like I’m the one getting schooled.
My Review:  5 STARS
Having read all of Sutton’s other books, this one was on my tbr the moment I had space. I loved the idea of a list and everyone at school trying to prove their titles wrong. Maisie was delightful as a character and getting to know her and Connor just had me speeding through the book in one sitting. I adored the trope, one that I usually find isn’t done well, but Sutton has a way with words and made this one perfect, giving you all the threads of the story and tying them up at the end. Overall an amazingly delightful read, and highly recommended!
