Not having read any of Ms. Jackson's previous books I went started this one with no set expectations other than looking for a good romance....I was not disappointed in the least. The MCs Callie and Kate are just wonderful on their own but when you get them together, sparks.

I know the description gave me the impression this was going to be a student/professor relationship, and it is BUT Callie, the student is 34 (which thank you, I always cringe when this type of genera has younger ages in the student-20s). Callie is working on her PhD and is a TA who first meets Dr. Kate Jory in the TA interview. From there the story picks up steam (and I don't only mean in pace <smile>).

There is lots of dialog with I just love!!!....and so many supporting characters that make the book humorous along with the angst of the MCs. The story overall is wonderful to follow along and in my opinion so many facets-you have; age gap, late coming out, forbidden relationship, friends to lovers and of course add in some meddlesome friends and a very tipsy Dean at times and you will be laughing and cheering them on.

Ms. Jackson is definitely on my 'watch for' list and I recommend she become one of yours. I hope we see more of these characters in the future, see how Callie and Kate are progressing maybe?

I received an ARC through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, but would have written the same opinion if I had come across this author on my own.

To see my Amazon review, it is under CC-Great read with lots of loving characters
