Sometimes all it takes is a moment for everything to change.
|Blurry by Carina Adams is a taboo student/teacher relationship that blurs more than just the lines. Cecelia Merrill is a smart kid, 15, and a talented athlete from a low-income end of town. Being raised by her mother who is never around Cecelia fends for herself and has built walls to keep other out. Craig Knightly is almost finished school, just a student/teacher placement at a local high school to finish to earn his diploma. Craig’s been asked to assist with female field hockey team and befriends Cecelia feeling bad for her situation and dawn to her. Rules are set between them but lines get crossed and blurred along the way.
I read the first few chapters of Blurry in “A Secret Affair” anthology and I was hooked. I’ve never read a Student/Teacher romance – the idea kinda creeped me out – this trope has never interested me before. I understood these characters and felt for their situation and could see their chemistry and the pull towards each other. It’s the two sided coin here: Cecelia is wiser beyond her years but then again she’s 15/16. Craig is only 21/22 but still the adult here and he crosses a line that shouldn’t be crossed. I did have a couple issues with pacing in the middle – I found it dragged a smidge but come the end of the story I understood why it needed to be told and that once I saw the whole picture it was clear as day. Carina has created a beautiful taboo romance that will make you think about relationships and how we view them. 4.5 Stars for Blurry by Carina Adams
in her voice was almost laughable. “Whatever.” She rolled her eyes. “Fine. I think you’re hot. Until you talk. Then you just bug me.” I laughed, but she continued, “Three: Our significant others come first. We don’t blow them off to
spend time with each other.”
