Misadventures with a Professor by Sierra Simone

November 13, 2018



Zandy Lynch never planned on going to grad school a virgin. So when her professor father finds her a job abroad as a research assistant the summer before she starts her master’s program, she sees her chance. She’s got one night in London to lose her V-card to a Mr. Darcy lookalike before she has to join some ancient professor in the country.

Oliver Graeme is not looking forward to having some American co-ed hovering around while he’s trying to work, but he owes her father the favor, and besides, his office is an untidy mess of uncatalogued research. He needs the help. Still, he decides to take the edge off his frustration while visiting a colleague in London, and winds up having the sexiest, sweetest night of his life with a stranger, who vanishes in the morning without a trace…


To Zandy’s shock when she arrives at Professor Graeme’s house a day later, the door isn’t opened by a fussy old scholar, but by the wild, passionate man she met in London. Cold and reserved by day, Oliver is ferociously greedy with her at night, and it’s not long before Zandy finds herself falling for both versions of him—the aloof professor and the generous, rough lover. The trouble is that summer only lasts so long, and Zandy already has a plane ticket waiting to take her home…

**** 4 Star Review ****


Be prepared to need a fan while reading this book. If I had to describe it with one word, it would be HOT! This book is definitely hot and steamy. Consider yourself forewarned.


The only thing I didn't really care for in this story was Zandy's character in the beginning. Her introduction versus her a couple of chapters later and for the rest of the book are night and day. She is presented as reckless and naive. However, the next time we see her, we get the exact opposite for the most part. I got whiplash with the sudden change in her so fast.


Oliver... I am conflicted. We aren't given an age range for him, but we do know he is clearly older than Zandy. With that being said, he seems a little emotionally immature and clinging to his past relationship a little too much. Although this aspect of him is a big part of the story, I did roll my eyes at him a couple of times.


One thing is for sure, I couldn't deny their chemistry and attraction. These two characters are explosive together. No matter my feelings on them separately, their budding relationship just makes sense in this book. Their connection is so apparent, there is no denying their panty-melting heat.


Overall, this book is definitely hot, spicey, steamy, romantic, and heartwarming. It is a perfect combination of all things that should be in a romance book. There was enough balance of all elements, leaving me with a happy ending I was prepared and glad for.
