Synopsis: A sweet and steamy New Adult Romance from Amazon bestselling author of the Ruthless People series, J.J. McAvoy…
After an erotic one-week fling with a musician she meets in a bar, Thea Cunning never expects to see Levi Black again. Then Monday morning comes around, and she discovers that her former lover is not only her professor, but he’s also one of the top criminal lawyers in the state of Massachusetts.
With everyone in class vying to be one of the twelve disciples—a group of twelve students that Professor Black takes under his wing—tensions run high. Thea considers dropping his class, given their passionate week together and their undeniable chemistry. After all, there are other (less infuriatingly sexy) law professors on campus.
But to accomplish her goal and get her father out of prison, Thea knows she needs to learn under the best of the best—and that’s Levi Black.
But can she learn under the best, without being under the best?
I can’t tell you what I was expecting after having read her first works (mafia books) but what I got with BR was nothing like what I expected. Sure I was a little taken aback with the LACK of cursing(what does that say about me?) used in this book until I remembered it is a NA and should probably have less f-bombs drop than normal. Levi and Thea are so refreshing from the so many girl sleeps with/falls in love with teacher plots, I loved them from the start. It reminded me so very much of “How to Get Away with Murder’ but a lot less backstabbing!
Thea has one mission and that is to bring her father home. She has a plan, and she is sticking to it, but she didn’t count on the hotness that is Levi, and her new law professor. Things defiantly get intense and more than just in a sexual way. I loved the courtroom drama as much as the obvious foreplay between the two.
However i do have to warn you, if you plan on reading The Great Gatsby at any time in your life, be warned that there are spoilers about it. I am one of the few people who have not read it and make no plans to read it so it didn’t bother me.
All in all I thought it was great rendition of a story that has been told a thousand times over and I only wish it were longer.
4 out of 5 stars!
