We know when it comes to romance with a twist JA Huss does it like no other so when the blurb for 18 surfaced and I learned that her next project was going to be the of the student/teacher variety, I was excited. I knew this would not be typical. I knew that she was going to push the envelope. I knew I’d have to struggle to balance my kindle on my knee as I took care of those damn pesky pants. Why are they always in the darn way?

Shannon is having the worst birthday ever.
Scratch that.
The worst life EVER.

I am not going to tell you about Shannon and her hot mess of a life. Just know that this girl has had it tough. She’s a bit naïve, but not in the sense of being immature. She’s just sort of sees the world in a much better light than she should, than her past dictates she should. She is after all, only eighteen.

Enter Mateo.

One hot bossy teacher.
He is all things inappropriate.
From the start.

And I loved him.
And I did claim him (yep, another one bites the dust).

I can’t even tell you about this story because true to Julie’s style, it is twisty and things are not always as they appear. But what I can say is that I loved it. I loved every second of it. I loved that I read it in about three hours and had to read parts of it again later that night. I loved that Shannon was a bit broken, she sort of reminded me of a younger version of Rook from the start of Tragic.

I adored Mateo although he was bossy and a bit rough around the edges at times. But there were some pretty swoon worthy moments when he took off those bossy pants and gave us a glimpse of something a bit more romantic.

I just finished reading this book, and once again Julie has blown my mind with the stuff she comes up with! So far I’ve read about characters that range from a down and out girl who becomes a body paint model, a gorgeous genius who has “pets” who tend to his sexual proclivities, a hotter than hell stud who builds custom motorcycles and is the lucky guy who gets to do the body painting. I’ve also read about assassins, some more messed up than others, with one being a 13 year old girl who was probably the best of all of them. So when Julie said she was writing a story involving a student/teacher relationship I really had to wonder how she was going to stamp this in the usual Julie style. I wondered if this book would follow the style of the daughter of a hotel magnate who has the “unfortunate” luck of having to work with a male stripper who teaches women how to be sexy.

For me, this book didn’t turn out to be anything like any of those previous stories I mentioned. No matter how “real” Julie’s other books have been, this one was the realest of them all and hit closest to home of my own personal life. The book starts on the day of Shannon’s 18th birthday. We quickly learn that nothing has gone very well so far in Shannon’s life. She’s living in California after moving from Ohio with her sister a year ago. A lot has happened in that year, she’s experiencing a lot of things she never experienced growing up in Ohio. She has to make up credits if she wants to graduate high school so she finds herself signed up for a trigonometry class. Enter Mateo Alesci. All I can say about him is WHOA…

As usual, Julie leads us on a wild ride, pushing my personal comfort zone multiple times and leaving me saying, “what?” which by the way, Shannon also does all throughout the book.

After I read half way through the book..I went back and looked at all the reviews for this book again. I was shocked at how many people actually liked this book versus the people who disliked. I'm all in for a hot steamy book..but this book verged on rape and mateo was a creepy stalker. When you are questioning whether or not you raped someone..then there are problems. Shannon had an internal debate whether or not it was rape and Mateo had to ask Shannon because he wasn't sure?! I found it off putting when both parties are trying to figure out what to call it. When a teacher forces himself on a student before that student can even say yes or no. .that pretty much is rape. She had to decide after the fact that she liked it. .so it was ok? But it wasn't ok with me. I felt like it was forced. Then half way through the book it turned super cheesy. I ended up just swiping through. Not my kind of book.

I read this book on the plane on my way to Riviera Maya, Mexico. My parents were one row behind me and my boys on either side of me. Imagine my dismay as I'm trying to read my kindle while squirming in my seat so nobody could read over my shoulder. I mean this is one HOT book. Okay now to talk about the story.

Shannon turns 18 and her life seems to hit one obstacle after the other. She thinks her senior year of high school is going to be a breeze but finds out she needs extra classes to graduate that will require her to attend night school. Which brings us to Mateo - the night school teacher. Mateo is every girls wet dream but he's her teacher and ten years older. Now throw in a JA Huss twist with one hot neighbor and fellow student Danny, to confuse Shannon even more. I can't tell you how many times I jumped between these two deciding which one she should end up with in my mind. I can say it all works out in the end. Every twist and turn only makes you appreciate all the things Shannon has to do to get her life on track.

This story is unlike any other I've ever read and I loved every minute of it. The only complaint I have is that it is a standalone. I would really love at least one more. I'd even take a novella - just a thought.....
