Burnout by CoraLee June
Genre: NA, contemporary romance
Publisher: self published
Publication Date: August 16, 2019
Blakely has struggled all her life. She trusts no one and walls stronger than steel erected around her heart. But Decker, her biology teacher, her brother’s best friend is finding ways to break those walls.
Falling for him might be wrong but stopping isn’t an option anymore.
I was on pins and needles because of Decker FREAKING Harris. I can’t believe this man exists and doesn’t exist at the same time because I am in love and I don’t know what to do with myself anymore. I loved him being cold, I loved him being soft for Lucas and I love the way he loved Blakely. I think he was the perfect counterpart for her and man I wish there was more to read about them.
I adore Blakley with all my heart. No one should go through the awful things she went through and I kept cheering on for her to be happy. I just wanted to hug her and make her problems go away. I LOVE how strong she was but at the time she was strong in amazing ways.
This story has me enthralled from page one and I did not want to stop reading it. I finished it in one sitting because it was THAT GOOD. A few things towards the end were a bit over the top for me but I love the way the story concluded. After this book, I’ve become a CoraLee June stan for life.

Maybe if we met at another time—another life—he could’ve been mine.
Maybe if I were older. Maybe if he wasn’t my brother’s best friend. Maybe if he wasn’t my teacher.
Having my dirty little secret living down the hall had me obsessing over alternate endings and happily ever afters. I’d never wanted someone so badly, but his hot and cold behavior was giving me emotional whiplash. In the classroom, he practically ignored me. But here? In my brother’s loft? It felt like we were a thick rubber band, pulled so tight we’d snap.
Falling for Decker Harris made me realize that life wasn’t as serendipitous as everyone liked to think. We weren’t just a collection of maybes thrust into the world with hope and good intentions. Everything started with a choice, and somewhere between grief and redemption, I chose to make him mine.
