But with his mother in need of help, Summer has no choice but to return to his hometown, take up a teaching residency at the Albin Academy boarding school—and work directly under the man who made his teenage years miserable.
Professor Fox Iseya.
Forbidding, aloof, commanding: psychology instructor Iseya is a cipher who’s always fascinated and intimidated shy, anxious Summer. But that fascination turns into something more when the older man challenges Summer to be brave. What starts as a daily game to reward Summer with a kiss for every obstacle overcome turns passionate, and a professional relationship turns quickly personal.
Yet Iseya’s walls of grief may be too high for someone like Summer to climb…until Summer’s infectious warmth shows Fox everything he’s been missing in life.
Now both men must be brave enough to trust each other, to take that leap.
To find the love they’ve always needed…

My Thoughts: I enjoyed this book. This was moving and sweet. Our characters are dealing with challenges of their own. It was also written really beautifully. I liked it.
I liked seeing the relationship grow and flourish. There was definitely some work involved for Summer and Fox to open up to one another.
This was a nice read. If Just Like That sounds like the thing you want to read, I'd definitely recommend picking it up.
