After 10 years away from home, bad boy caterer Gideon Marks has a lot to prove. Getting the holiday catering job at his childhood synagogue is the first step in demonstrating to everyone he didn't turn out to be the failure they predicted. What he doesn't count on is Rabbi Jonah Fine, his high school nemesis and secret crush, stirring up old feelings Gideon thought long gone and secrets he's buried deep for years. An unexpectedly passionate encounter shocks Gideon, but he pushes Jonah away, convinced he isn't good enough to be in a relationship and would never be accepted by Jonah's father. But Jonah hangs tough - he won't allow Gideon to hide or run away from life again. And when it comes to love, Gideon learns the most important lessons aren't always taught in school.

Learning to Love left me with a lot of mixed feelings. Their story was good but at times i wanted to smack Gideon upside the head, he annoyed me some what. Then other times i just wanted to hug him because he was obviously hurt and a little lost and held all this against everyone. Gideon Marks chip on his shoulder left him feeling he had to prove to people that he had made something of his life. After losing his mother and grandmother in a car accident Gideon was raised by his alcoholic, emotionally abusing father. But while trying to prove himself he could never see that the people around him were proud of him.
When Gideon returned to his home town he never expected to find his childhood crush as the new Rabbi; Gideon isn’t ready to deal with Jonah and no matter how much Jonah tries to get close to Gideon, Gideon tries his hardest to push him away. Good thing Jonah isn’t a quitter and he’s determined to have Gideon, the man he’s always loved.
Jonah had a lot of walls to break down with Gideon. As well as his own struggles with taking over from his father. But his love was strong enough for the both of them when Gideon was struggling to except that his feeling were true. I really would have like Jonah's POV i think it really would have help the story more. Mainly due to the fact that like i have said Gideon's behaviour at times grated on me. I would have liked more from Jonah to balance it out. All in all it was an interesting story that ended with a HEA.
