Product Details (as per amazon page)

Former tennis player Easton Bradbury is trying to be the best teacher she can be, trying to reach her bored students, trying to forget her past. What brought her to this stage in her life isn’t important. She can’t let it be. But now one parent-teacher meeting may be her undoing . . .

Meeting Tyler Marek for the first time makes it easy for Easton to see why his son is having trouble in school. The man knows how to manage businesses and wealth but not a living, breathing teenage boy. Or a young teacher, for that matter, though he tries to. And yet…there is something about him that draws Easton in-a hint of vulnerability, a flash of attraction, a spark that might burn.

Wanting him is taboo. Needing him is undeniable. And his long-awaited touch will weaken Easton’s resolve – and reveal what should stay hidden . . .

I’d like to thank the publishers for an arc in return for an honest review.

I loved this seductive, sexy, gripping story.  It left my heart thudding with the intense chemistry between the main characters and also the drama held within the storyline.

Easton was in her first year of teaching at high school.  Her teaching techniques were fresh and interesting which caught the students’ imagination.  Easton’s teaching techniques however, came under scrutiny especially with one particular parent, Tyler Marek.  Tyler was a self-made millionaire but had been an absent parent to his son up until recently.  Easton and Tyler had briefly met months ago at a Masquerade Ball.  Since then Tyler has been unable to get Easton out of his mind.  When both Easton and Tyler discover that they have feelings burning up inside for each other they are afraid to ‘let the flame burn’ due to Easton being Tyler’s sons teacher.  Easton is also trying to move on with her life after a terrifying and tragic ordeal in her past.  Can she let the demons from her past go?  Tyler’s life starts spinning out of control and he has to decide what is most important.

This was a brilliant, sexy page turner of a book with a twist in the tale that left me stunned.  I couldn’t get enough of Easton and Tyler.  A stunning 5/5* read.

Book and product description (as detailed on amazon)

Jaxon is the guy she’s supposed to avoid . . .

K. C. Carter has always followed the rules – until this year, when a mistake leaves her the talk of her college campus and her carefully arranged life comes crashing to a halt. Now she’s stuck in her small hometown for the summer to complete her court-ordered community service, and to make matters worse, trouble is living right next door.

K.C. is the girl he won’t let get away . . .

Jaxon Trent is the worst kind of temptation and exactly what K.C. was supposed to stay away from in high school. But he never forgot her. She was the one girl who wouldn’t give him the time of day and the only one to ever say no. Fate has brought K.C. back into his life – except what he thought was a great twist of luck turns out to be too close for comfort. As they grow closer, he discovers that convincing K.C. to get out from her mother’s shadow is hard, but revealing the darkest parts of his soul is nearly impossible.

I’d like to thank the publishers for a copy of this book for an honest review.

I loved this story of Jax and K.C. surviving their turmulous past and finding their innermost fears and desires by facing them head on. It was filled with angst, lust and longing. It was gripping and heart wrenching. It was super sexy but beautiful and romantic. Both Jax and K.C. had experienced unspeakable terrors and upset in their past. They were hurting and felt betrayed by those that should have cared for them the most. Can the pair overcome their constant nightmares? Can they reach out to each other and make each other feel safe? Can they learn to control the heated passion between them? Can they learn to love?

A gorgeous, gripping, sexy 5/5* read.
