Ellen Ragsdale wanted more than a teacher-student relationship with Alexander Cord, but didn’t think he would want the same thing. When he makes the first move, will she accept his offer or decide not to risk her heart and play it safe by walking away? When she learns the truth about his past, will her feelings towards him change? Or will it only make her want him more?

I enjoyed this contemporary romance story. This is a fast-paced story that is filled with sexy banter and several very steamy sexual encounters between the two main characters. I liked Ellen. She’s smart and a bit shy but all shyness flies out the window when Alex walks into her life. I liked Alex too. He’s strong and very confident. He knows what he wants and that’s Ellen and he will do anything to make that happen. He seems to want to push her away so that she can find a better man, but Ellen is not willing to look for another man when she has found such a great man already. I also liked her friends they were a wild and funny bunch. The love scenes between Alex and Ellen are melting hot. This story contains very explicit love scenes and language.
