Stars: 4 out of 5


After an erotic one-week fling with a musician she meets in a bar, Thea Cunning never expects to see Levi Black again. Then Monday morning comes around, and she discovers that her former lover is not only her professor, but he’s also one of the top criminal lawyers in the state of Massachusetts.

With everyone in class vying to be one of the twelve disciples—a group of twelve students that Professor Black takes under his wing—tensions run high. Thea considers dropping his class, given their passionate week together and their undeniable chemistry. After all, there are other (less infuriatingly sexy) law professors on campus.

But to accomplish her goal and get her father out of prison, Thea knows she needs to learn under the best of the best—and that’s Levi Black.


The most frustrating thing about this book was the editing or lack of. Words were misused, sentences didn’t make sense, and thoughts became unclear.

The book was sectioned into three parts. The first part switched back and forth between the present and the past. Usually I don’t mind when a book does this but for some reason doing this didn’t work well with this book. I think the book would have been stronger if it was told in a chronological order. The way it was written really took me out of the moment and took away from the romance the two main characters were building. The second part of the book was just told in the present and the third part was the future.

Overall, the plot was good and the characters were interesting. Neither was perfect and both were relatable. The book was an easy read and fun for those looking for a steamy romance, strong feisty female lead with a broken last, and a happy ending.
