This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

She’s a high-class escort. He’s a heartbroken client. Falling in love was never in the contract....

Grad student River Roberts is at the head of her class. But outside of the lecture hall, she’s struggling to make ends meet. Refusing to let her diploma slip through her fingers, she joins a secret student society that caters to the wealthy alumni’s deepest desires. But when she starts to fall for a handsome client, she realizes she never factored in the price her heart would pay.

After his wife’s death, Jonathan Ferris fills his waking hours with high-powered acquisitions and commodity trading. But no amount of cold hard cash can keep him warm at night. Consumed by loneliness, he turns to his alma mater’s escort service. But his passionate encounters with a co-ed who’s as smart as she is sexy make him wonder if there’s something more between them than money.

With graduation fast approaching, can River and Jonathan see past the price tag and open their hearts to true love?

The Dean’s List is the first stand-alone novel in the steamy Making the Grade romance series. If you like secret societies, sizzling sex scenes, and forbidden love affairs, then you’ll adore Kelly Collins’ irresistible listen.

I didn't want it to end!


deans list

Right some the start, I loved the female lead! she was so down to earth, and someone I feel I would be friends with. Taking this trip with her in the secret world of getting paid for sex.. but not in a low class cheesey street walker way. I would of done the same thing in her shoes. Ok I’ll admit it.. who would not love to be spoiled by a man? shopping trips, spa trips, oh and the shoes and clothes! and the great food! sign me up! OK Iwell not really, but in fantasy, I am all in.
Loved this book. I was actually sad that it was ending. I knew it was coming, and I kept hoping every chapter was not going to be the last. but it finally ended. I was bummed. I wanted to hear more! This book will go in my repeat list, and I am sure Ill listen to it a dozen or so more times.
This is kind of like a modern day Pretty Women, but so much better. if you liked that movie, you will love The Deans List!


Aria Abienta’s performance was spot on and I do hope to to hear more from her.


I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator for an unbiased review via Audio Boom..

This story is completely original, I loved the basis of it and the character development. There were so many great surprises that happened through out the book that I kept guessing how it would all work out.

I recommend going on to book 2 in the series, Honor Roll, for a insight on Luca Gregorio.

Enticing Story of Sexy Co-Eds, Lust and Love

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely! This has by far been one of my favorite books in this genre... I loved the back and forth meeting of the minds... and bodies... between the main character, River and Jonathan - the oh-so-delectable and emotionally unavailable scholar chosen to be her "mentor". I also found River's story so engaging - coming from such a conservative background to discovering a whole new side of herself, and reveling in it.

What did you like best about this story?

I was so intrigued by the idea of this secret society these people created where only the most attractive, and smart people are paired with their equals in an effort to create not only intense sexual situations, but also a layer of networking. I had some sexy experiences back in my college days, but none as enticing as this...or as well-paid for that matter! :)

What about Aria Abienta’s performance did you like?

Her voice is like laying in freshly-washed, 1500 count, Egyptian cotton sheets... Every word, every sigh... the way she describes each detail of the story elevated the already great writing. I listened to the entire book, and was actually sad when it ended... Aria is like the sexiest, gentle guide taking you on a journey of self-discovery and lust in this book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did have to break it up due to the length, but every time I had to walk away, I couldn't wait to come back to it and see what happened next.

Any additional comments?

I thought it was extremely well written, and I loved the narrator. I can't wait to download other books by Aria Abienta... So excited to have discovered her. And bravo to Kelly Collins for keeping me entertained for 8+ hours with such riveting characters and an exciting story!

Wow. Much better story than expected!

I had a hard time putting it down! The story was well written and very interesting.

River is going through graduate school and has no money to pay all her bills. Her best friend Jade introduces her to a new lifestyle. A lonely and secretive one.

Jonathan's wife died several years before and he thought nobody would be able to take her place. Until he met River and everything changed.

The story is told in River's POV. It wraps up with a great HEA conclusion!

The narrator did a pretty good job bringing the story to life.

I want more

I really liked this story. It had a little of everything and kept me interested the whole time. The narrator also did a wonderful job, I usually nitpick but I honestly don't have anything negative to say!

I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for more both the author and narrator.

This book was gifted to me in return for an honest review.

Not Erotic

This book is more saucy Chick-Lit than erotic. Whilst well written and narrated it is so slow that I gave up on it after about 100 minutes, by which time there had not been a single erotic scene, only a few sexy references. Disappointing as it had a promising start!
