Book Description:
Twenty-one year old Colette Ellis has done plenty of daydreaming about Professor John McGill, but after a spur-of-the-moment decision to seduce him in his office turns her fantasies into reality, she is left longing for more.

She soon learns that this handsome academic can be as firm as he is passionate, and when her bratty behavior earns her a sound spanking she sees a side of him she never expected. Before she knows it, the beautiful young woman finds herself tied up at his mercy, naked, exposed, and more aroused than she could have ever imagined. As she grows closer to him, she cannot help but wonder how long this can last. Could John come to see her as more than just a naughty coed?

John has never fallen for a student… until now. There is something different about Colette, something that brings him alive in a way he has never felt before. Can he dare to hope that she is after more than just a fling?


Ginny’s Review:
The best thing I can say about this short story (because it’s only 68 pages long) is that Normandie Alleman can definitely write sex.  It’s a really hot, sexy, short story, but it really is only a string of sex scenes with a bare minimum of plot to make it into an actual story.  There isn’t much in the way of substantial plot and I found the heroine to be annoying and immature.  It’s great that they “found love” in each other but when the Professor informs her that the women he’s been with before have been very reserved and, comparatively, Colette is very vocal and appreciative of sex and he’s only ever seen that in pornos. Colette then gets VERY outraged and pissed off for him calling her a porn star, which then, in her mind, escalates up to him calling her a whore.  This is NOT what he said, not what he meant and even as a female who can get hysterical at times, I found myself wanting to slap her. Hard.

This is a great short story to read if it cost less than a dollar and if you just want to read some sexy sex scenes.  I put down a tag of “BDSM” but it really isn’t — he spanks her, uses handcuffs but that’s more kinky vanilla than BDSM. Also, the first time he spanks her is on the outer stairs leading into her apartment building — even if you’re into exhibitionism, that could get him arrested. Just sayin’.

If I were basing my rating on the hotness factor of the sex, it would get a scorching five out of five. But as a whole, as a short story? It’s going to get a 2, because of the lack of substance aside from sex and filler, fluff plot in between.
