Siobhan Gallagher has just started her senior year at the University of Southern California. She has her best friend and her boyfriend of five years by her side. As the countdown to graduation begins, her world comes crashing down when her boyfriend confesses that he has cheated on her. Her past has shown that love is volatile, but she had hoped that this time would be different. Siobhan becomes a cynic – doubting the existence of love. She vows to never give her heart to another.
In walks Professor Michaels. He is a sexy billionaire playboy who limits his encounters to one night, maybe two. His jaded past and multitude of secrets shapes his aversion to love and relationships. He makes no promises of forever. Offers no apologies for his preference for variety. When he first meets Siobhan, the attraction is mutually instantaneous. He knows she is supposed to be off limits, but he has never denied himself of something he wanted.
Siobhan and Professor Michaels share the same sardonic outlook on love. What happens when these two paths cross? If they give into this forbidden attraction, can they both come out on the other side unscathed?
Siobhan Gallagher thought she had it all. She was so wrong. The first step in her loss of control and her life was when she walked into her first class of the semester and spotted her professor, who just happened to be one of the most gorgeous men she had ever seen.
Professor Michaels, he is every girls dream. He is sexy, knows how to treat a lady and is a billionaire. He is also a well known playboy that makes it a habit to not keep a girl around for more than one or two nights. He had no idea what he was in for when Siobhan walked into his class.
The next piece of the puzzle of her loss of control is when Siobhan’s long term boyfriend, of 5 years, breaks up with her because he has been screwing other girls on campus. This devastates Siobhan, sending her into an inward depression. Her longtime friend, Jordan, and roommate, makes it her mission to help her friend move on. This leads to the beginning of the forbidden attraction between Siobhan and Professor Michaels when their paths cross again at Bailey’s party, unbeknownst to Siobhan, Professor Michaels (Grayson) is Bailey’s brother.
Even though they both know it is wrong neither one can deny the attraction and need to be with one another. This leads to a very steamy proposition and a relationship that throws all rules out the window.
The connection that is seen between Siobhan and Grayson is steamy, hot and extremely sensual. They do well at keeping the arrangements under wraps, until the ‘Evil’ Vanessa makes it her mission to keep them apart.
This book has the forbidden love, friendship, mystery, heartbreak, tragedy, an evil jealous woman, and the potential for happiness or complete heartbreak for the people involved. This book kept me on my toes; the turns that occurred in Siobhan’s life were definitely not your typical college student. But she did have a very interesting first semester to her last year of college. At times I did want to tell her to suck it up and stop with the tears, but it also made her an endearing character in the book. I defiantly was rooting for the forbidden attraction and I was not prepared for the cliffhanger at the end. It is going to be a long wait to find out what is in store next for Grayson and Siobhan, her friends and the ‘evil’ Vanessa.
“Let’s go dance,” Jordan says.
I look over at the professor whispering to his date and decide it’s either go dance with Jordan or become a third wheel to these two. “Sure.”
I take my time getting up, both to let him have a full view of my ensemble and to get my equilibrium before attempting to walk in these heels. After I feel steady and confident in my walking ability, I put an extra sway in my hips as I sashay away.
We head inside to the dance floor and I am instantly lost in the music. The crowd swallows up Jordan and I can no longer see her, but this does not stop the gyration of my hips. I suddenly feel a hard body pressed against my back and strong hands grip my waist. He smells heavenly—a delicious blend of woodsy and spicy. He’s riding my rhythm with his hips attached securely to my butt. I feel his erection, fueling my grinding, knowing I’m causing this reaction. My eyes are closed and I tilt my head back against his chest. In this moment, I feel sexy and desired. I resist turning to look at him to avoid spoiling the fantasy.
I feel this stranger’s breath on my ear before he nibbles on my neck. I let out a gasp and he grinds himself into me more.
“Such the temptress. I keep losing my self-control around you,” he growls.
That voice. Oh my God. It’s . . . “Professor Michaels?”
“Grayson, please. I’m not your professor here.” He spins me around to face him while slipping a knee between my legs. “I enjoyed that little show you put on by the way.”
His hands are planted firmly on my butt now as he grinds me against his leg. My dress is riding up and I am afraid that any minute my bare ass will be on display for all to see. Feeling the hem of my dress rise, Grayson tugs it down and holds it in place without stopping his newfound rhythm. His cerulean blue eyes darken with lust and my nipples pebble against his chest. We stare intently at one another while the music fades in the background. “Where is your date?” I ask.
