Marissa Mitchell loves her job as a first grade teacher. Dating a student’s father is the furthest thing from her mind, even forbidden…until she meets Brady James. His sexy and confident demeanor captivates her, his tattoos giving him that bad boy edge for which every woman drops their mouths—and panties.
When Marissa agrees to meet Brady for drinks, she could never imagine what she would walk into. Her world tilts when she learns what kinds of things make up the man before her, the kind of man she never knew she wanted.
I want him…beneath me, above me, behind me…inside me.
My rating: 2.5 of 5 stars
Marissa is a first grade teacher who meets Brady, the father of one of her students, during a classroom event at the start of the school year. She is physically attracted to Brady from the start, and finds an invitation to meet him for a drink shortly after their first meeting. Marissa accepts the invitation and they confirm that they are indeed quite sexually compatible.
I feel like there was some potential here, but even for a novella, this was quite short. I feel like what we did get here was a few bits of story that are very similar to other books in this genre, without the author expanding on some of the elements of the story that could help this one find its own unique elements. I wish the author would have given us a little bit more information about either character, but we really just get surface descriptions, and not even many of those. I also wish she would have exploited a little more of the tension or conflict that could arise with her being the teacher of Brady's son.
