The first time I met Caine West was in a bar.

He noticed me looking his way and mistakenly read my scowling as checking him out.

When he attempted to talk to me, I set him straight―telling him what I thought of his lying, cheating, egomaniacal ass.

You see, the gorgeous jerk had wined and dined my best friend-smooth talking her into his bed, all along failing to mention that he was married.

He deserved every bit of my tongue-lashing and more for what he'd done.

Especially when that lazy smile graced his perfect face in response to my rant.

Only it turned out, the man I'd just told off wasn't the right guy.

Oops. My mistake.

Embarrassed, I slunk out without an apology.

I was never going to see the handsome stranger again anyway, right?

That's what I thought...until I walked into class the next morning.

Well, hello Professor West, I'm your new teaching assistant.

I'll be working under you...figuratively speaking.

Although the literal interpretation might not be such a bad thing―working under Professor West.

This was going to be interesting...


I bought this a few months ago because i have really enjoyed this authors books in the past.

This one starts with Rachel out at the bar she works at with her friend Ava, consoling her friend after finding out that the guy she's been seeing for the last month or so is married with three kids. Rachel sees the guy in the bar and has a stern word with him...or maybe she told off the wrong guy. The next day she's late to her music lecture, where she's also meeting the new Professor for the first time and letting him know she'll be his TA. Professor Caine West just happens to be the same she told off last night and if the sexual tension between them wasn't bad then, then working under him now is going to throw some challenges at them.

I was drawn into this quickly. I was intrigued by the dynamic of the two main characters. The mystery of not when would they do the deed - because it was obvious they would! - but how long would it take before the tension snapped. I do love a bit of angst in my romances and this one was crazy full of it. One minute they're arguing, the next they're ripping each others clothes off. I actually quite liked that about it.

I have classed this as erotica(esque) because the sex is rather graphic and more erotic than a lot of other books I've read for a while.

There was also a "fifteen years ago" chapter thrown in every so often that showed a younger Caine as he suffered through helping out at his local church that was rather cleverly thought out in my opinion. I didn't figure out how that was going to tie into the story until a little before Caine started to put two and two together himself.

I do enjoy this author's book and I will definitely be reading more of her books in the future.
