Publisher's Summary

It all started with a broken classroom heater....

Graduate school prepares you for many things - the rigor of academic life, how to pull consecutive all-nighters, and living off a meager stipend without having to be roommates with cockroaches. 

Elle Graft might have made it through six years of graduate school, but she's not convinced she'll survive her first position as an Assistant Professor. Because for all she learned, graduate school never prepared her for dealing with a student crush.

Terrific narration!

I'd not read anything by Eliza and still have The Woman in 3B in my Kindle. But when I saw that she'd hired the "legendary" Angela Dawe to narrate this book I had to pause everything else and listen to it. Dawe and Abby Craden are my favorite narrators and sadly, we only have a handful of Dawe-narrated lesfic books to enjoy. In the beginning I was completely hooked. It was funny and you understood and empathized with Assistant Professor Elle Graft's fascination with Hunter, a beautiful, decade-younger nursing student taking her English class. Stories about teacher/student relationships tend to make me feel a bit uncomfortable since I once taught high school, but this was college and Hunter was of legal age. And - importantly - there was nothing unprofessional that occurred while Hunter was in her class. All good. My issue with the story came into play in the second half - once the two got together. The sexual chemistry was off the charts but you would have thought it was Elle who was the one a decade younger. She was a hot mess and I almost felt sorry for Hunter that Elle was her first. It's understandable that Elle was uncomfortable with the age difference initially (though like I said - Hunter was the more mature of the two) but she beat that horse to death. And then she was so damn wishy-washy and made some really terrible decisions. One of these involved someone who reappears from her past and that's pretty much when the story lost much of its appeal.
There were good things about it. I liked Hunter, Elle's friends, and it was a very steamy read. Ultimately, though, Elle was a bit too flawed for me to root for her very much. There were also some grammatical errors that you don't often catch on audio but stood out - problematic when Elle is supposed to be an English professor. This gets 4 stars because of Angela Dawe - who always elevates a work. Dawe doesn't just read, but performs. Each character has their own distinct voice and I especially liked Hunter's. And Dawe's narration of the love scenes? Lord have mercy. This is the first of a series that many in FB groups have said that they love. I may give the second one a go - especially if Dawe narrates it. But I won't be rushing out to do it.

Eh

Was very close to giving up on this book.
Main character was an idiot through most of the book, and her best friend was annoying.
Only reason i finished the book was because Angela Dawe did a great job
I honestly thought Hunter deserved better than Elle
There are many books that are better than this one, dont waste your credits

Love this series and love the audiobook

This is one of my favorite series of all time. It’s always nice to hear the audiobook after reading the book because you get a fresh perspective from the narrator. Angela Dawe knocked this out of the park. I look forward to listening to the rest of the series.

The Damn Heater

A great opening with a terrific closing and even brilliant epilogue. A found a new favorite author and that is Eliza with a combination with Dawe voice.

Just Yes!

Great book. Great start to a really good series!
I did find, for me, the book started out really, really strong and lost a little momentum, but not enough for me to put it down, or any of the subsequent books in this series.
I really like Eliza Lentzski books and I find Angela Dawe to be a favorite narrator of mine.
Highly recommend this series.

Because Angela Dawe

It begins as a light read love story. A person has a crush, a person dreaming about a crash, all as normal. But then it starts zig-zagging, as soon as they get together. I think the author had some difficulty writing through some situations, therefore, abruptly ending chapters, and no follow-through on some significant situations.
Why did I keep reading? - Because of Angela Dawe! That woman is my siren. I am seriously considering listening to some straight fic she narrated, that is how deeply I have fallen for her talent.

Loved

I read this on my Kindle and loved it. I have listened to numerous books on here and Angela Dawe has become one of my top fav narrators. I wanted to hear this story told by her and I was not disappointed! One of my top five books and performances!

Super!

I was so excited to see that one of my first lesfic reads had been brought to Audible.
I have always been endeared to Elle and Hunter.
I was not at all disappointed.
I loved their story just as much as I did when I read it years ago.
Great writing as always by Eliza.
Great narration.
Absolutely loved it.
Can’t wait for the next instalment.

Lots of psychological drama spoilt by narrator

I found Angela Dawe's reading style quite irritating. It really does not help deliver the depth of this audiobook. However, her style does highlight the neurotic personality of the main character, her irritating best friend and a few other, minor, characters. Although, a bonus was that she did not use intonation to turn every sentence into a question, as some narrators do. So, her delivery could be a lot worse IMO.
Unfortunately having an audiobook narrated by a reader with such a distinctive lispy delivery is a distraction and does not help bring the best out of this novel. It also fails to add much needed warmth to the characters and the story.
IMO Eliza Lentzski is a decent writer but seems to be attempting a work of literary fiction with this novel. She writes in a rather cool and distanced, somewhat cerebral style which did not make any of the characters sympathetic to me. Although I thought the story line was good, I feel Eliza Lentzski fails at to reach the standard of a literary novel, maybe because she needs to be more precise with her writing, or hire a better editor, or possibly because I'm English and we use words and create phrases differently.

Saved by the excellent narration

I assume the point of these stories is the emotional investment we develop in the lead characters. In this story however the lead character was bland, mostly indecisive and mostly unlikeable. A few kinks and twists thrown in to apparently add interest didn’t as they were inconsistent with the otherwise weak and indecisive character.

Normally I would have left after a few chapters but for the excellent Angela Dawe narration, well every cloud ……….

Amazing audio version

I love the way the book was adapted as an audiobook, I was actually waiting for this book to be here since I have all the winter jacket series in hard copy together with the Hunter book. I hope all the Winter Jacket series would be here soon! The narrator was excellent on the voice over and it’s easy to indicate which character is who while the story’s being told. I recommend this book series to lesbian novel fans that want a good chill book to listen to.
