Publisher's Summary

She thought she knew what was between the sheets, but she really had no idea.

I thought I knew what I was getting into when I received the invitation from the lovers academy. I thought I was going for love. I had no idea that the lovers academy cared more about what happened between the sheets than it did a meeting of the minds and souls.

This isn't your regular love story. My Prince Charming didn't ride up on a white horse and come and save me. In fact, he warned me to stay away from him. Of course, I didn't listen. Why would I? There's something so exciting about going after someone you shouldn't have.

However, I never thought it would be like this. I've never felt so conflicted in my life. No one told me that being bad could feel so good. No one told me that when the big bad wolf tells you to run away and hide, you should listen.

If I'd only known just how far from charming my prince was, I would have ignored the invitation.

Listeners of this serial should be prepared for a wild sexy ride. They should also be above 18 years of age due to sexy situations.

Definitely not my genre

What would have made The Love Trials better?

If you like 50 Shades of Gray, then you'll probably like this book. I personally found the premise absurd and I'm sick of this sort of male lead. He's a total asshole. I honestly couldn't listen to very much of this book. However, the voice acting was great (very seductive). I think what it boils down to is that I'm not the right audience. I don't read very many romance novels.

Yummy Man Candy!

Any additional comments?

This book is HOT! It's all about, well suppose to be, learning how to seduce a man. That's what the Lovers Academy claims to be all about anyways...

Seriously, why don't we have such a place for real?

Nancy, a naive 18-year-old, has it bad for her former high school teacher Hunter. After learning that he works at the Lovers Academy, she applies there, in hopes to seduce Hunter. Instead, she is paired with Jackson, the obnoxious dude from the train she had the misfortune of meeting while on her way to the academy. Nancy was under the misguided notion that Hunter is the one that approved her application, and that he would be her instructor while there. Nancy having no clue of what the Academy is really about, is in for a huge surprise! Hence the naive comment from earlier.

The narrator Marami Hung did an excellent job of portraying an 18-year-old's voice. She was able to control her tones very well for each emotion and situation as it was happening in the story. Marami was a very good fit for this character and book. ;)

The story line is not just all about mindless sex. There is a surprising twist at the end that I was not expecting. Nancy is easily seduced by Jackson, and forgets all about Hunter, and Jackson is not just in it for the love of teaching! The book is only 1 hr. and 42 min., but boy that was enough for me to get hooked! I totally want to hear the next book and find out what that twist in the story is all about and how it unfolds.

not enough

This is more of a novella - and I felt it didn't have enough for a "book 1" - It's about a young girl wanting to catch the heart of her former teacher and decides to attend a sex school. She's discovering her own sexuality while thinking of Hunter the old teacher, but her current teacher has other plans for her -

Not for me, but I could not stop reading

This is a really tough call, while I did not love the story, it did suck me in and have me reading the whole serial.

Nancy is such a contradiction! Innocent virgin but super sassy and independent. It was hard getting a real bead on who she was and what was happening.

I guess it would have helped if I had read the other serials that are set in the same world. I was lost with all the extra plot intrigues.

This book kind of sets things up and getting you into the mix of the "Lovers, Academy" It starts out as a girl who is lusting after her former teacher. I am not generally a fan of this theme, but whatever. It ends up she can be distracted by a bad boy what gets to her by being a jerk. Some girls dig that, Nancy is one of them. She swiftly changes her interest to Jaxon, who seems to be doing some serious head games!

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Marami Hung, who is fantastic. She has a great energy and sucks you further into the book. She is a big part of why I kept listening and needed to finish the serial. Her tone is pleasing and the energy she puts into it is engaging. It is a nice pace, but I like it a little quicker, so I punched up the speed.

*** I hope this review was useful to you and helped your decision to read or not read this book. I love reading and sharing my opinions with other readers. I listen at double speed; all my impressions of the narration are from that setting. Thanks for taking the time to read my review!
