Our thoughts...

This is one of the hardest reviews I have had to write yet.  I’m sure you know that I am a huge sucker for a student/teacher romance.  I love them!  I can’t get enough of that forbidden relationship.  This book by Jade West was a student/teacher erotic romance and I just didn’t love it.  If I had to rate the hotness of this book it would be 5 scorching stars.  It was hot, it was dirty, and it was erotic that is for sure.  With that being said I feel like this story didn’t have any originality.  It just fell flat for me and it took forever for me to finish it. 

You meet Helen (hate the name for an 18 year old in 2016 like come on!)  she is a high school student who has had a huge crush on her art teacher since she was 12 years old.  Mr. Roberts is the art teacher who has a connection with Helen but keeps trying to stay professional and not act on his urges.  You read about their connection throughout and how they will act on this infatuation.  This story is mostly about Helen and Mr. Roberts but you also read a lot about Helen’s best friend Lizzie.  I hate to give any spoilers away so I’ll keep this as simple as possible.  One of the reasons this book just kind of failed for me is that one part is basically date rape.  I didn’t like it.  It was uncomfortable and in my opinion completely unnecessary for this story.  I feel like the whole story line with Lizzie just added more drama that could have been left out. 

I think a lot of the UK slang was also hard to read for me.  I didn’t understand a bunch of what was written and I think that didn’t help me with the story.  I will say that the way the book ended was good.  I enjoyed the ending and was glad that the drama was over.  I said before if I was rating this book on its smut factor it would be 5 stars but with the other issues I had with this book I am giving it a generous 3 stars.  It wasn’t for me and I’m sad about it because I really do like this author and have read other books by her that were really enjoyable.  Jade West can write erotica that is for sure.  I think if you like this type of book you might enjoy this and I truly believe everyone reads a different book so don’t let my opinions sway you from reading it.  It will get you hot and bothered!  3 dirty stars.
