Once upon a time there was a beautiful college student…
Erin cleans Mr. Morris’s house twice a week to pay her tuition. The reclusive ex-soldier intimidates her, but she can’t help but feel sympathy for him. Then she walks in on him touching himself, and she has much darker, much more sensual feelings.
And a beastly professor with scars he can’t hide…
Blake Morris knows he’s scarred both inside and out. He’s reclusive and surly. Nowhere near good enough for the smart and beautiful young woman who cleans his house.
He receives an offer to return to his alma mater as an associate professor. This is his chance to reenter the world–and to be worthy of the woman he dreams about. He never expected to see her sitting in his classroom on the first day of the semester.
Someone so beautiful and good had no business being around a goddamn coward like himself, but fuck if he wasn’t selfish enough to force her anyways.
A modern tale of Beauty and the Beast wrapped up as a hot forbidden romance. This story had everything you could want when it comes to a forbidden romance. Of course, it had the age gape but Erin and Blake met while she cleaned his house, he was her employer and he eventually became her professor.
Blake was injured in Iraq by an IED and his life changed. His fiancé left him, he stopped teaching and spent all his time in his home, away from the public eye. Erin is a student, who has worked hard in school and worked as a maid to pay for her education. There was an instant attraction between the two. I loved their chemistry. I loved that their entire relationship was forbidden.
I was completely hooked on this story from the beginning. I already love the tale of Beauty and the Beast but when you add in the forbidden aspect and the erotic themes it makes the story. I can’t wait for the second book to see what is next in store of Blake and Erin.
