-- SYNOPSIS --
If it weren’t for her best friends, Zoey and Maya, Addy Hart would be a prudish, uptight Barbie doll. Thankfully, through love and persistence, they’ve helped introduce her to her wild side. Unfortunately, even her wild side doesn’t have the courage to go after the one thing she wants more than life itself.
Dr. Greyson McDaniel has resisted his lovely teaching assistant for three years, now. He has no intentions of endangering his job or her reputation. But as spring break approaches, he’s seized with a wicked impulse. He invites her to his mountain retreat for a week. Just one week of intense escape.
What they both discover after their affair is that a week isn’t nearly enough. But as much as they long to be together, there are obstacles in their way, and the ethics of student-teacher relationships are the least of their problems. When she realizes how deeply rooted Grey’s commitment issues are, Addy begins to despair of ever having a happy ending with him. But Addy’s love might be just what’s needed to free him of his past.
-- MY THOUGHTS --
The synopsis is strong. The cover is not as impressive to me; the couple do not seem to capture the essence of Addy and Grey as they are describe and I've imagined. But aside from that, we've got the story itself. It's the third in the series and includes the previous couples as secondary characters. While this can be read as a stand-alone novel, the reader would gain the most out of it if it were read in order of the series.
Addy's been crushing on her college professor for years and even becomes his TA to be closer to him. She's a 23-yr old virgin who's saved herself for the man she thinks she can never have. He's 12 years older and afraid of commitment and fears putting his career on the line for his young student-turned-assistant. Even though he knows he can't have her, he's just caveman jealous enough to want no guy to have her. <- I'm not sold on that whole storyline, the series was great without trying to add all of the taboo and obsession elements. There are moments that I really like Addy and others that I really, REALLY don't. Same with Grey. Most of the time, I really truly liked him... but every now and again he'd screw it up by acting like an idiot. The cast of secondary characters, both new and old, were beneficial and supportive to the plot. Dialogue was believable, interaction felt mostly natural. His using "kiddo" as a nickname for her was a little off-putting. The plot certainly contained enough drama and plenty dynamics and writing style flows very smoothly. The conflicts were mostly resolved, but there really was no clear-cut resolution to the Gwen issue. Predictability was low. The conclusion was mostly wrapped up. It had the HEA, but I felt it could have benefited from an epilogue covering all three couples if this is meant to be the end of the series. Overall, I was a huge fan of the series and liked this book, but I hate to say this... I liked the other two books better.
Heat Level: 4.25
In this book we have Addy’s story, which is a bit taboo really. She loves her professor/boss.
Addy is a sweet girl going to college and secretly in love with her professor. She’s planned out her life to suit what Dr. McDaniel’s has hinted at that she should do. Grey who has as well found himself intrigued by Addy has subtly try to veer Addy’s future to where he wanted it. He’s even somehow managed to keep her single even though he’s never actually ask for it.
When they finally give in to what they both feel for one another they can’t seem to let go after they return from their break. This causes many problems for them, and they struggle often. But in the end Addy finds that she can follow her dreams and goals while being in love, and Grey discovers that unlike his father he can love and stay committed to one woman.
The story was a fast enjoyable read. I don’t only recommend this book to romance fans I recommend the entire series.
~~ I received an ARC from he author via NetGalley for an honest review. ~~
This is a great story of the heart wanting what the heart wants. Even though I wanted to slap both of the main characters at one time or another throughout the book I couldn't help but pull for them. I definitely recommend this one.
I really enjoyed Addy’s character. She reminded me of myself in some aspects, especially when she misses out on opportunities due to her lack of courage to go against the rules or do something uncomfortable. This made her easy to relate to and I found myself encouraging her to embrace the unknown. The sexual chemistry between Addy and Grey was super steamy! They had no problems in that department and yet they both found themselves struggling with wanting more. Addy wants some sort of commitment and Grey isn’t the commitment type. As their affair is brought to light, they are tested in several ways and they grow; both as individuals and as a couple.
I liked the author’s writing style and the flow of the story kept me turning the pages. I also enjoyed being introduced to Maya and Zoey, Addy’s friends, as I haven’t read the first two books in this series. That said, it in no way hindered me and I feel as though these books are standalone. I will be picking up the first two as I’m curious to learn more about those characters.
I received a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This book is for mature audiences only due to sexual content.
