*New adult romance*
**Explicit scenes and language**

Junior in college. Star athlete. Constant attention from the opposite sex. 

On this campus, I’m worshiped. While seven hundred miles away, back in my hometown, I’m still trailer park trash, child of the town tramp, and older sibling to three kids who are counting on me to keep my shit together so I can take them away from the same crappy life I grew up in. 

These two opposing sides of myself never mix until one person gets a glimpse of the true me. I never expected to connect with anyone like this or want more beyond one night. This may be the real deal.

Problem is, Dr. Kavanagh’s my literature professor.

If I start anything with a teacher and we’re caught together, I might as well kiss my entire future goodbye, as well as my family’s, and especially Dr. Kavanagh’s. Except sometimes love is worth risking everything. Or at least, it damn well better be because I can only resist so much.

The Review: Engaging, steamy and emotional, To Professor, With Love is a forbidden story full of heart-warming and hot scenes! 

It’s been a while since I read a book by Linda Kage. The last time I read one of her books was the first book in the Forbidden Men series, Price of a Kiss and although I can’t remember every single details about it - like I said, it has been a while – I do remember I really enjoyed it. I have to say though I definitely enjoyed To Professor, With Love more. I know some people will be put off by this story because of its teacher/student story line but I’d like to say this definitely stands out from some of the other similar stories out there. It’s not as black and white as most are. There are certain elements to this story that makes it refreshing and unique and honestly, a fantastic read and it’s certainly one I’d recommend! 

Noel and Aspen really were a great duo. Their narratives really get you hooked and completely invested you in their story.  I think what made me enjoy them so much was how lovable they both were. Sure, they had their issues, many in fact but it’s something they overcome and I really feel they become much better people together that continue to grow throughout their relationship. Their story was exciting and dangerous but their love for one another was stronger and I guess you could say I was proud with how they handled everything. It sure was emotional but it’s just what I love about a new adult story. 

As I said before, I enjoyed this more than Price of a Kiss. The reason for that is because the first book was very much a stand-alone book, not too many secondary characters that stood out to you and made you want a sequel. But with To Professor, With Love and it being Aspen and Noel’s story, she found a great way to bring Mason and Reese into their story and I loved it. I really did. I loved how she involved so many more secondary characters and with the hopes of more books to come from the new characters I quickly came to love. I’ve noticed Linda Kage’s work improves with each book she writes and I simply can’t wait for more!

Favourite Quote: “You. Are. Mine … I don’t care how wrong we are for each other. I don’t care that I’ll never be good enough for you or that we’re risking everything to be together. Your mother would never approve. Whatever. F**k it all. You are f**king mine. And I’m yours. And we belong together.”

Thank you to Linda Kage for giving me the opportunity to review this book in exchange for an honest review.
