Class Act by Gianni Holmes


Sometimes the best love stories are the ones that are taboo...

From the Class Act Blurb:

Abe Cooper is a triple threat.
He's my best friend's father.
He's the football coach at my high school.
And he's a married man.

His marriage is on the rocks and he could lose his job for the way he looks at me.
I could lose my only friend in the world.
I know I should stay away instead of flirt with him.
But all the cons don't outweigh how I feel when I'm with him.

When my home situation gets worse, Abe is there for me. But what we do under his roof when everyone's asleep makes me feel guilty.
Now his daughter, my closest friend, knows he's stepping outside his marriage and she's hellbent to find out who I am.
How long can we keep us a secret and how dare we be happy together when it might hurt the ones we love?

Class Act is a 100k+ stand-alone MM romance between a teacher and a student in senior year of high school. It contains a huge age gap and cheating, but there's no cheating between the MM couple. All characters are 18+.

Heather's Review:

OMG - Abe - Best friend's father, coach at the high school and married...  Emery -19 year old gay man, repeating his senior year at a new high school, cheerleader and genderfluid dresser... the sparks, the steam, the forbidden relationship....

I will warn you that there is cheating and if that's a dealbreaker you'll want to give this a miss, but if you can handle it, you'll fall in love with Abe and Emery!   There is also homophobia, drug abuse and physical abuse by a parent.

Class Act had it all - angst, emotion, drama, steam, sweet and more!

Angel's Review:

I wasn't sure how I would feel about this book, I am not a fan of characters cheating and building another life with someone while they are still married. I don't approve of that at all. However, having said that, I think that they way that this was written and handled was very well done. I wanted Emery and Abe to get together, I wanted everything to work out for them. 

I strongly disliked Teresa, did she deserve to get cheated on? No. But Abe had a right to want to be in a happy relationship, he tried to make their marriage work and she was to preoccupied with her career. 

And poor Emery, I felt so bad for him. He not only had to deal with the bullying at school but to then to not even have an escape at home? That's awful that his dad treated him like that. This story was written really well, and I did enjoy all of the character. My favorite character was Emery just because I haven't read very many books with a femme male as the main character. And I really enjoyed reading this book.

I would recommend reading the author's warnings first before you dive in, if cheating bothers you I wouldn't recommend this. If it's something you can handle then I think you should grab a copy. 

I definitely recommend this book, although I still don't know how I feel about it.
