Actual Rating: 3.5 – 4 stars
Forbidden Romance | Student/Coach
Coach Me is a standalone, student/coach, forbidden romance from Shanora Williams. If you haven’t read her books before you should know that she writes some steamy forbidden romances. Those books are the exact reason I started reading her novels and honestly, I haven’t been able to get enough of them since then. When I found out she was writing a forbidden romance between a college athlete and her coach I jumped at the chance to read it and I am really glad I did. I don’t read enough books like this and it was unique in comparison to the books I’ve been reading lately. While I did enjoy this one as a whole though, it’s not a favorite of mine when it comes to her books. I think one of the main reasons is that I never felt the angst or forbidden passion between Torres and Amber. Perhaps this is because there weren’t many clandestine meetings? It all just happened very quickly and that made for an un-angsty read for such a forbidden subject. Don’t get me wrong, Shanora can write the heck out of a forbidden romance, I just didn’t FEEL it between these two.
One of the things I absolutely LOVED about this book is that the characters are multicultural. You don’t see this enough in romance novels to be honest and it’s a breath of fresh air when you do. There were some moments that were uncomfortable because racial biases were a part of this story (I hate stereotyping and racist remarks), but they certainly bring major issues to light. I think many readers will connect with Amber because she’s so raw and real and deals with her haters appropriately.
All in all, this is another solid read from the author and I think many readers are going to really love it. While it’s not my personal favorite it might be yours so make sure to check it out when it releases.
