First time reading this author
This book is based on a taboo relationship between the hot English Professor Ramsey & sweet American exchange student Dora. The pages are packed with sizzling hot sex scenes throughout the book.
Dora's left all her family behind in the USA to escape vile rumours that were being spread about her. Dora's first day at uni she literally falls into her English Lit lesson, takes one look at the Professor and it's not too long before she's falling into his arms and into his bed, even though she has tried to resist what they can both feel. She becomes his sub, the sex is amazing and she falls for him. Then he pushes her out of his life. She's absolutely heartbroken and the one friend she has made Simon is there to support her.
Ramsey has has worked his way up from being a T.A to professor, he lives a secluded life and has nothing to do with his family. He's been dreading going back to the new term that was until the sexy student stumbled into his class dropping all the books on the floor. One look at her and her wants it to be her panties dropping on the floor. The magnetic pull between them is too strong to resist and he introduces her into a BDSM sex life. He falls for her but puts up barriers because of his past. But there's also a problem being created by his mother.
Soon rumours are going around again but this time they could effect her scholarship & Ramsey's job.
Will they be able to get past the hurdles that they have come up against and fight for the live they both know they feel for each other?
NOTE This book ends on a cliffhanger.
So what exactly did I like? I liked the taboo student/teacher storyline, even liked Dora and Ramsey initially. Ramsey was a pretty dynamic professor to say the least. I certainly never had a professor who regularly cursed at us or told us off in his own way. So I respected him for just being an honest professor who cared about his students, but wasn't going to let them get away with not paying attention or doing their assignments. I liked Dora a lot. She had a tough go of things at her old school and was looking for a fresh start. She was also incredibly book smart, so I respected her intellect and her trying to adapt to a completely new environment in a new country. I LOVED Simon, Dora's drag queen neighbor. He was such a great friend and support system for Dora.
But there are so many other things going on in this book that I really didn't enjoy. Ramsey is such a jerk, and that's being nice. He wants Dora, but then he doesn't. He kept going back and forth with himself on whether or not he wanted to keep her as his girlfriend. He was way too quick to jump down Dora's throat about something and he treated her like crap so much that I lost sight of the times he was actually nice to her. Yes, he was a really sweet guy a lot of times, but those few times he loses his temper really make him seem as though he's bipolar.
And then there's the whole answering his phone in the middle of a D/s scene. What Dom that knows what he's doing and respects his sub would really do that? That just shows a total lack of respect for her and he's neglecting his duties as a Dom when he allows those types of interruptions. And right after the phone calls he just ends scenes like a snap of his finger. I just didn't get it. The BDSM scenes in this honestly felt amateurish and like they were simply role playing. And the safe words he set were too complicated. No first-time sub would remember the 4 or 5 band names to signal how they're feeling at the time. I couldn't even keep up with what each one meant after the "I'm good" and "stop" signals. You're supposed to make it something easy enough to recall. For a supposed professional "Dom," he sure did do everything wrong when in a scene with a sub.
Then there are the things we learn about Ramsey that really make me question whether or not he's a coward or a danger to Dora. <spoiler>I mean, did he really just watch a girl get raped and beaten and let her die without doing anything until after she lay there in an alley lifeless? That part alone made me dislike him even more as a person. </spoiler> He is certainly not a 'hero' in any sort of way. I won't even get into his whole family dynamic. That was just a mess.
While I liked Dora for the most part, I can't get over the fact that she let him talk down to her so many times and all it took for him to win her back was to say he's sorry and kiss her. That's it...no graveling, no apologizing more than 20 seconds, no sweet gestures that didn't involve him spending money. She really should have stood up for herself more since he kept doing the same thing over and over and she kept taking him back. And who Skype's with their mom while they're laying in bed with their boyfriend and makes it obvious that they're sleeping together? That was just a bit too unrealistic and awkward, yet they acted like it was normal.
And then there's the little surprise at the end (I wish I had known that this book had a cliffhanger...most authors are kind enough to warn you in advance). I don't think I'll continue reading the series. It started out so great and that's the most disappointing thing about it all. The book does tend to move really quickly too, which is okay when there's an actual ending to the story, but that's not the case.
I kept finding grammatical errors throughout the book (i.e. writing "butt" instead of "but"). With two authors, I would hope the mistakes would have been caught by someone. Maybe it's just the Communications professional in me that is bothered by those types of mistakes. I have the utmost respect for authors and know how much goes into writing a book. I read 200+ books a year and rarely rate one below a 3. This one just had a hero that I hated and some of the things he did just rubbed me the wrong way. I'm sure he changes in Book 2, but it seemed like there was something much more serious going on in his mind than what was implied.
