Lizzie Brandt was valedictorian of her high school class, but at Radleigh University, all she’s acing are partying and hooking up with the wrong guys. But all that changes when her parents are killed in a tragic accident, making her guardian to her two younger brothers. To keep them out of foster care, she’ll have to fix up her image, her life, and her GPA—fast. Too bad the only person on campus she can go to for help is her humorless, pedantic Byzantine History TA, Connor Lawson, who isn’t exactly Lizzie’s biggest fan.
But Connor surprises her. Not only is he a great tutor, but he’s also a pretty great babysitter. And chauffeur. And listener. And he understands exactly what it’s like to be on your own before you’re ready. Before long, Lizzie realizes having a responsible-adult type around has its perks… and that she’d like to do some rather irresponsible (but considerably adult) things with him as well. Good thing he’s not the kind of guy who’d ever reciprocate.
Until he does.
Until they turn into far more than teacher and student.
Until the relationship that helped put their lives back together threatens everything they both have left.
If you guys know me, then you should know that I rarely read New Adult. Mostly, it’s because I’m not into the “bad boy meets virgin girl and they both undergo an angsty drama” thingy that a lot of them are unfortunately full of. Another reason is that I’m not really into reading sex scenes. I’m not against it particularly, but it’s just something I seek once in a blue moon and when I’m in the right mood for it. What’s interesting is that when I chanced upon this book, I wasn’t feeling like reading one under this genre at all, but after taking a sneak peek at the blurb, I just knew I had to get my hands on it.
An age gap? A taboo teacher and student relationship? An orphan girl suddenly becoming the guardian of two minor kids?
Dude, something like that just screams to be read.
