Tour Stop & Giveaway: Schooled by Deena Bright

The horrifying shock of witnessing her husband banging his skank-whore secretary spurred this ever-wholesome and rule-following teacher to seek some new lessons of her own. A young teacher learns about sexuality, pleasure, and satisfaction from rather unlikely and forbidden teachers, her former students, now recent college graduates. Not only does she get “schooled” by the beautifully-built all-American football player who struggled to pass her class, but she also learns a few tricks from the innocent, well-read, and thoroughly sexy bookworm. Both men teach her that not all curricula worth learning comes from a book.

Go through the journey Janelle Garrity-Flowers faces after discovering her husband’s infidelity. Growing up, she followed the rules, but now, she wants to defy the norms and play by her own rules. Janelle explores her own sexuality, searching for pleasure beyond her wildest dreams. However, despite this callow teacher’s “lesson plan” of forgoing the rules and not letting emotion get involved, the teacher must decide between the athlete, the scholar, and the career she loves. But what or who does she love and want more?

The three of us were sitting around just talking, talking mainly about bullshit topics, nothing of substance. I was talked out by that point when there was a knock at the door. Joz got up to get it. “Hey Nelle, Uh, I think it’s for you,” she said teasingly.

I walked to the door; my eyes widened. Briggs was standing on my porch, holding a comeback cup from Starbucks. All his confidence and assuredness was back, leaning on the frame of the door. 

“Dude, why is Briggs Alexander at my house...your house?” Jasper was looking at Briggs, star struck, as he bounded up to the front door, shaking his hand and pounding his back. Everyone in town knew Briggs; he was a hometown celebrity. Jasper led Briggs in. Suddenly, silence and awkwardness filled the room.

“You know he was one of my students.” I didn’t know what else to say and that response certainly didn’t clear anything up.

Jocelyn walked up to him, looking formal and business-like. “So Briggs, is it? What brings you here this morning?” Nice Jocelyn. Real subtle. “With Starbucks?” Damn Jocelyn, shut it. Jocelyn and Jasper were floored. I didn’t think it could get any worse at this point.

“I just thought the Teach deserved an apple.” He pulled a small apple from his pocket and popped it into the air. It hit his bicep, sending the apple through the air to me. I caught it with a giggle, quickly shutting my mouth and sucking in my lips. “Plus, I left my phone right there last night,” he said as he walked over to get it. I hadn’t even noticed his phone. And yes, it could get more awkward. Oh. My. God. What were they going to think?

Jocelyn and Jasper glanced back and forth between us, then incredulously at each other. They decided that they needed to get going and were stumbling over each other to leave. Mortified wasn’t strong enough to explain how I felt. They mumbled their goodbyes and left the pool house, leaving us alone.

“I left the phone here on purpose.” Briggs looked so proud of himself. “What can I say? I’m an overachiever, eager to learn more.” Alright, he was hot, even though he wasn’t as skilled in the bedroom as I had imagined, his sex appeal and willingness to learn was making up for it. Fuck it, what did I have to lose? My job. My reputation. My dignity. Eh, fuck it.

“I’m glad you’re here; I was just about to take a shower.” His eyes widened. “But a bath seems pretty good too. Interested?” His shirt was off before I finished the sentence. “But hon, you need to learn some self-control.” I couldn’t believe how cliché I was being, but I wanted this man naked and in my bathtub.
