I want to go to this school! Or maybe the main campus. Or maybe both! I hadn't read the first book in this series, so I read this as a standalone. And it can be read like that. But although the story itself is mostly about Savannah and Margaret, Van and Maggie, a lot of the characters, even Maggie, were in the first book. There are allusions to happenings in the first book that definitely make me want to go back and read it too (the whole Ms Lucy and Clarissa story, plus Reed and Amanda, who don't really make an appearance in this second book but enough is said that you know their story is going to be good as well!). Also, the teaser at the end makes me really want to read the next book in the series, so get to writing Ms. Bacio. But back to this book.
I like the idea of this smaller campus for only women. It makes me wish there was such a place way back when I was learning about myself. Van and Maggie meet the first day of class and there's an instant attraction between them. Both are firmly trying to change things in their own lives, and this leads them to be more open to each other than I think they might have been if they'd met more conventionally. The problem with that is they're existing in almost a type of limbo, because both realize this school isn't exactly the real world. And it's when the real world intrudes into their relationship that they're actually tested. It seems like they get through these test rather well; first with Van's father, and then with Maggie's coworkers. It's the third test that messes things up, and we're left wondering if they'll ever even see each other again, much less find their way back to a relationship with each other.
There were two things that I didn't care for in this story. I don't like when my characters get together so fast. It seems that by getting together so quickly, the relationship feels shallow and almost unformed, because they don't really know each other yet. And in this story that translated into a sense of uncertainty if they were going to remain together, because you had the feeling that neither had been tested before, that they didn't know their own boundaries at all, much less the boundaries of the other person. It's hard to believe in a relationship like that, although at the same time, I wanted them together, because they were sweet and hot together. The other thing was that Maggie's reaction the news her brother's phone call brought (unnamed here because you have to have some surprises, but it's that third and final test from above) seemed almost out of character for her. I'd not seen that sort of behavior from her before (maybe in the first book?) but I certainly didn't expect it.
All in all, a good book, enjoyable and entertaining. If you like erotica with a bit of kink, I'd recommend it. I'll certainly be looking for book one and book three, as well as any others after that.
