Zandy Lynch never planned on going to grad school a virgin. So when her professor father finds her a job abroad as a research assistant the summer before she starts her master’s program, she sees her chance. She’s got one night in London to lose her V-card to a Mr. Darcy lookalike before she has to join some ancient professor in the country.Oliver Graeme is not looking forward to having some American co-ed hovering around while he’s trying to work, but he owes her father the favor, and besides, his office is an untidy mess of uncatalogued research. He needs the help. Still, he decides to take the edge off his frustration while visiting a colleague in London, and winds up having the sexiest, sweetest night of his life with a stranger, who vanishes in the morning without a trace…
To Zandy’s shock when she arrives at Professor Graeme’s house a day later, the door isn’t opened by a fussy old scholar, but by the wild, passionate man she met in London. Cold and reserved by day, Oliver is ferociously greedy with her at night, and it’s not long before Zandy finds herself falling for both versions of him—the aloof professor and the generous, rough lover. The trouble is that summer only lasts so long, and Zandy already has a plane ticket waiting to take her home…
****Misadventures is a romantic series of spicy standalone novels, each written or co-written by some of the best names in romance. The stories are scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly sexy. They’re the perfect bedside read, a ‘quick blush’ for the reader who loves a page-turning romance.
“In this bed, I’m the professor, and you’re my student, and I’m going to taste you. And then I’m going to fuck you.”
I have not read any of the other “Misadventures” books so I can’t speak for any of them but from what I’ve seen this fits that mold. I think this one though will stand out because of Sierra’s signature steamy writing.
Oliver and Zandy had some smoking hot chemistry. I can’t say that she will be one of my favorite heroines, but she had great chemistry with him. I found the age gap and teacher/student aspect of the story hot. With these two they really sold that for me. The reason I couldn’t give this 5 stars was because of the low angst and the sometimes pointless drama that unfolded. The drama took away from the story, and the low angst made it feel lacking something. That doesn’t mean that Sierra didn’t bring her A game with the rest of the story. The sexy writing she is known for is here and not to be missed.
