Learning discipline in the grad school of love…
Forty-two-year-old widow Rosemary Lockhart longs for her late husband, Charlie, and his spankings and erotic domination. Wunderkind thirty-two-year-old grad school professor, Jonathan Kent, craves an older woman who will submit to spankings and his will in the bedroom. When Rosemary registers for his course, “European Erotic Literature,” the attraction between them instantly flames, despite the taboo against teachers and students becoming lovers.
Nevertheless, the two are drawn to each other, sharing a longed-for kiss that only serves to put distance between them. Near the end of the semester, when Rosemary must ask for more time to work on her term paper, she offers her bottom up for caning as the punishment for lateness. Once Jonathan agrees to cane her one stroke for every day the paper is late, the heat between them rages out of control. They have hot, rough sex on his desk, something both of them enjoy but immediately regret.
After she turns in her paper late, Rosemary shows up the next day at Jonathan’s office for her caning, miserably in love with her professor but resigned to never having him. Instead, she discovers a note with an unexpected offer.
Will Rosemary and Jonathan manage to overcome their fears, insecurities, and the taboos of age and teacher-student? HOT FOR TEACHER brings these two wounded lovers together, healing their hearts and educating them both in a grad-school course of lusty love.
Warnings: graphic language, oral sex, masturbation, spanking, caning, anal sex, M/f domination, older woman/younger man, a sexual assault (not by hero) that stops short of intercourse.
Two years after her husbands death Rosemary decides to get her life back. Even though it has been years since his death she still longs for her husband but knows that she cannot go on like this anymore. Rosemary starts by going back to school and gradually getting back into the dating scene. On her first day at school Rosemary finds herself drawn to one of her professors. Little does she know that he finds her just as delectable, almost to the point of distraction.
I enjoyed seeing Rosemary take back her life and go after what she wanted. Underneath it all she is a strong woman who just needed a little help and Jonathan is just what she needed. He may seem standoffish to the point of arrogant but we find he has a soft spot for Rosemary. The two make a good couple both looking for the same thing and finding each other. Proving that love is always in the last place you think.
While the sex scenes were hot and intense in this story I found it hard to connect with the characters. Which made for a dry read for me. Don’t get me wrong I liked the author’s style and will be looking for more books from this author to see if I can find one I enjoy more. I would also caution the reader that this story contains strong sex scenes that involve spanking and caning.
