I honestly didn’t even know that this book was coming out until I got an ARC for it. And it is the second book in the series. I didn’t discover that until after I finished it and went to go and find the rest to add to my list. So now I can really tell you that it reads like a true standalone since I thought it was the first book.
Leo Blackwood has always had a thing for the young teacher who started at his high school his senior year. He pushed all her buttons just to get her attention. So imagine his shock when he literally runs into her on his college campus and then ends up in her class. She is still the most beautiful woman ever to him but she is hiding from the world. He doesn’t like that and now that he can do something about his feelings he decides to pursue her. The fact that she is older and his professor be damned.
Kora Robinson has had a shitty marriage to a man she thought she knew. Now she is starting fresh as a fill in professor at the University. What she doesn’t expect when she gets there is Leo. She never forgot the annoyingly charming student she had. However, he is a man now and she is trying not to notice. It doesn’t help that he is flirting with her constantly and protecting her from her ex-husband. She knows that it’s wrong to pursue anything with him. She is his professor and his job doesn’t exactly allow for dating. But somehow she has convinced herself to try. Or has Leo actually done the convincing for her.
This was such a quick read. It was funny and sassy and had you rooting for them to the end. I loved that it was an older heroine and a younger hero. In most novels that are professor/student it is the male who is the older one and that wasn’t the case here which was a nice change of pace and a breath of fresh air. This book can definitely be read as a stand alone novel. I am now reading book one and wondering how Slater became friends with the group again and joined the Pleasure Ponies. But you find that out in book one. Make sure you don’t miss out on this book. You’ll regret not reading it.
