Why I read this book: I was intrigued by the title.
I’m a sucker for nerds. So a biology professor who wears geeky ties and doesn’t realize how hot he is, puts every part of my body on high alert. It also means I’m failing his class. There’s only one way to get him out of my head so I can focus. Seduce him.
Turns out that boyish innocence isn’t an act, and while Dr. Reid Emerson is a genius, there are many things he’s never learned. His eagerness to catch up takes my breath away. Will he let me be the one to teach him?
Maddie Evans reminds me of every popular guy I’ve ever known: Charming, persuasive, and used to getting exactly what he wants. But there’s a part of me — a part tired of being the only inexperienced person on campus — that doesn’t care. A flash of skin during our study sessions sparks a fire I can’t put out. I want Maddie. And I want him to teach me…everything.
We strike a deal that has me questioning my sanity, my ethics, and everything I ever believed in. I can’t resist him but being together is risky. Maddie could lose his spot in grad school, and I could lose the thing that keeps me going every day. Teaching.
Is this experiment doomed to fail or together can we pass the ultimate test of love and sacrifice?
My (Not So) Slutty Professor is a mm romance that involves cocky students, shy professors, meddling best friends, and lots and lots of ice cream. It is the first book in the My (Not So) Serious University series. It can be listened to on its own or as part of the series and has a HEA.
I snapped this audio up and devoured it in just a few bites. I have to say, I enjoyed it. My caveat, though, is that student/teacher stories make me uncomfortable. Even ones with college seniors who are almost the same age as their professors. There’s a power imbalance that can’t be ignored. And, in many schools, the professors would lose their jobs.
Okay, on to the fun stuff. I adored Reid. Geeky prof who loves trees. Is an environmentalist (hence the Verspa). I loved that he had a bestie who tried to make him see the fun side of things. And I liked how, once he opened himself up, he found he could care for Maddie.
Maddie was also adorable. A cocky student who gets super great grades but is bombing Reid’s class because he finds Reid so attractive. I’m not sure seducing the professor to get him out of your system is necessarily the smartest thing, but hey, they’re young. They’re single. And they are a whole lot of fun together.
Like I said, I enjoyed the story and I definitely can’t wait for the next instalment. Kevin Earlywine is a new narrator to me and I won’t hesitate to pick him up again. Please, let the next book release on audio soon.
