Teach Me by Sloan Johnson

Teach Me

Two words stripped Austin Pritchard of the privileged life he’s used to. The moment he uttered the words, “I’m gay,” he realized there is no such thing as unconditional love. Now, he’s gone from traveling the world with his family to living on the streets trying to figure out how he’s going to stay in school.

A chance opportunity changes everything. Austin impresses the foreman and lands a job, but even more, he catches the eye of David Becker, who is determined to teach him that true love doesn’t come with strings. 

The only thing David had as a child was love. His family struggled to keep food on the table and a roof over their heads. That has driven him to stay focused on his goals; become a tenured professor at a university and save enough money to build a home of his own. It’s not until he sees an insecure college student working on his new house that he realizes that he hasn’t planned on someone to share his life with. He’s about to learn that everything he’s already accomplished is nothing compared to the task of making Austin see that he is worthy of love.
Unfortunately there are too many families out there that are still not supportive when their children come out to them as gay. This is one of such stories.

Austin comes out to his family and is basically put on a bus to college. At the end of his first year, his family never comes to collect him. He is forced to take what he can and he lives on the streets. Luckily, he finds friends that show him how to live on the street. One day he goes for a day job and finds more than work.

David just wants his house finished. When he spots this young preppy looking guy, he decides to work with the workers to help speed things up. Something about Austin just calls to him. Over time, Austin becomes more than just someone to help. Their love grows and he helps Austin confront his family.

This is a wonderful love story. Just because it is two men doesn’t make it any less of a love story than any other.  4 Hearts!
