Review by Yarrow
Professor Amelia Bradley is obsessed with sizzling student Nick Creston. Of course, the Professor is far too ethical to become involved with the man, despite his obvious interest in her doing so. So what's a guy to do? When fate offers Nick the opportunity to get the Professor alone and 'tied up' in his plans, he jumps at the chance. After all, Nick's gone to a lot of trouble to put himself in the Professor's path. If a little break-in and some rope are the only way to get her up close and physical, he's ready. His heart's already on the line. What else is there to lose?
Nick Creston can tie me up any time. With a full head of dark curly hair, green eyes, and a body hardened by rowing, this hunky student makes me wish I could trade places with his college professor, Amelia Bradley. Her hot classroom fantasies about him and his desk top fantasies about her builds sexual tension in this story and keeps us reading to find out how long it will take Amelia to forget about the teacher-student taboo, and give in to Nick's passionate pursuit.
Besides this ethical dilemma, Amelia struggles with doubts that a man like Nick could be interested in more than just a fling with her when he has women panting to get into his bed. How, though, could she possibly resist this sexually talented man who craves her?
This erotic fantasy could have been creepy if Nick had been much younger than Amelia, but the age difference when revealed is a surprise that brings about a sigh of relief and allows a fuller enjoyment of the steamy sex scenes. When Nick and Amelia talk about their relationship they clarify questions that we, as readers would have about this teacher-student relationship. It comforts us to know that Amelia isn't a woman who would put her career as a professor and published author in jeopardy to sleep with a student. This makes her more relatable to us. We also fall under Nick's spell. Not only does author, Annick Claire, make us pant with her descriptions of Nick's body, she pulls us into the fantasy by giving him dialogue that breaks down any reservations we might have about these two hitting the sheets.
The Professor's Spring Fling is an engaging read. Buy it, read it, recommend to to your girlfriends. You can then have a great discussion about being in Amelia's situation: like talking about how irresistible is Nick Creston?
