This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

I was never supposed to see him again.
One night of passion with a complete stranger.
My last tryst before senior year.
But I was lost the moment his tempting lips were on my skin.
His intense touch on my body.
It should have ended there.
But he's not a stranger.
He's my history teacher.
And wanting him is against the rules.
Off limits.
Forbidden.
Illicit.

This is a new release of an edition originally published by AH Publishing.

Angsty, passionate student/teacher romance. Christian Rummel sizzles!

Illicit is passionate, emotional, full of heat and keeps your heart racing. Ava Harrison's writing has you sharing the roller coaster of emotions right along side Lynn and Carson. It's an angst filled, love story about two damaged people who are utterly lost to the passion and intense connection they share. This book is one fantastic ride everyone should take.

I was already a fan of this book when I read it, but listening to the audiobook was a completely new and mesmerizing experience. Christian Rummel's narration as Carson Blake is everything I didn't know I needed! As if Carson wasn't already a totally worthy book boyfriend before, but listening to Christian Rummel give life to the broody, protective, and sinfully sexy character took it to a whole new level of hotness. He takes a character and story that is already good and upgrades it to fantastic and damn near perfection. Carly Robbins is also great in her narration. She does an awesome job of portraying Lynn as vulnerable and conflicted without having her come off as whiny and overly dramatic. Also, her seamless transitions between characters gives the audiobook fantastic flow and made me want to keep listening straight through. Together both narrators, along with Ava Harrison's words, make this audiobook an absolute must listen.

This is YA (age 17-18) Setting in High School

Not for anyone over 20 yo. A complete turn off for a mature adult (or anyone with school aged children for that matter) . Ok, why is there no mention that the setting is in High School? Sorry, could not get past chapter 5. She is in HS........ (have to repeat that like 10x) and he is her teacher (give me a break). While she is of legal age, come on, HS....... NO!

Kinda boring

So an illicit affair between a student and a teacher should be super steamy and titulating, right? Dark Notes is one of my favorite romance books so I was hoping for something along those lines. Less BDSM to be sure but still hot and naughty. This one was actually boring. The characters were nice and the plot was serviceable but it just didn't have that thing that makes you unable to put it down. I was bummed.

Forbidden Love between a teacher and student

Great story. I enjoyed the plot and the writing flowed and was easy to get into. This is a story of a chance encounter that leads to an unexpected happily ever after. There are obstacles and hiccups along the way and a few points where Lynn was a little immature but I had to keep reminding myself she was only 19.
Carson was the reformed bad boy and trying his best to stay on the right track but the tempting student in his class makes it difficult for him to remember to stay in his place.
Forbidden love, passion and steam. A great blend of emotions made this an enjoyable read.
Christian Rummel was FANTASTIC!!!
I absolutely love his voice and the performance he gives. This was my first time listening to Carly Robins and I have mixed feelings. On one hand, her voice sounded kind of high pitched and not as easy to enjoy but she did do a great job and I’m sure I’d listen to her again.
