I’m Professor Drake Grayson. I’ve been teaching Psychology for the last few years at Fox University. It’s a great university, filled with a wide variety of students. Some eager to learn, some eager to get in my pants.
I’ve never crossed that line. I’ve never taken advantage of the power I have. I’ve never wanted to bend a student over my desk like I have with Emma Bower. She makes me want to forget I’m her professor and teach her things that she’ll remember forever. But is the risk worth it?
I’m Emma Bower. I’m in my last year of Fox University as a Psychology major. I can’t wait to get out into the real world and pick people apart. It’s been an amazing four years filled with memories that I’ll never forget.
Especially the penetrating stare of Professor Grayson. That man has been in every fantasy I’ve had since the day I walked in his class. I know he’s untouchable, forbidden, he’s my professor, my mentor. But what if his touches lasted longer and his eyes darkened with a wicked grin? What if the professor everyone wants, wanted me? Would the risk be worth it?
There’s only one way to find out.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
First I am going to say that I recommend this book as a must read. With each new book, it is easy to see how this author’s writing talent steadily grows. And that says a lot because I have loved each book written by Luke Prescott. The Professor pleasantly surprised me. After reading the blurb and teasers for this book, I wasn’t sure the direction this taboo romance was heading. I admit that I assumed Drake would be a bit too arrogant but that was not the case. Yes, he was demanding but also a gentlemen. The Professor has all the feels. As a reader I was very satisfied how the author gave us an incredible story filled with a range of emotions. A great balance of seriousness, humor and scorching intimacy. The pace of this book was steady to fast and I was able to read it in a couple of hours. I was engaged from the very beginning and my interest never wavered.
I had a few moments of worry and wasn’t sure where this story would lead. That said, you may find a couple of predictable moments but that doesn’t take anything away from making Drake and Emma’s story a fun, flirty, sinfully sexy read. In addition, we are introduced to several secondary characters that added additional depth. I loved the dynamic between some of the characters. I don’t want to give anything away but I can say two of those characters will find themselves on the pages of another book from this author.
I’ll be brief here…..Drake is The Professor and Emma is his student. There is an age gap but I didn’t feel like it was a big deal. Though she may be younger, Emma was mature. She was a good student; independent and loyal. Another aspect of this book I loved was the build of tension. Emma and Drake were attracted to each other very early on. That said, because of the student/teacher dynamic, Drake and Emma tried very hard to keep their distance. When they finally did get together, my Kindle was in danger of melting, ;). Drake and Emma, had a few hurdles to get over before the got their happy ending. This is where my slight disappointment is mentioned. The ending came very quickly. While there was an epilogue that took place only weeks later, I was hoping for an additional epilogue that shows this amazing couple a few years later. I wanted more. I needed it.
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
