My name is Willow Masters. I’m a senior in college, I’m smart and I keep to myself. I haven’t had an “incident” in over ten years. What all of these facts have in common is that none of them made any difference when it came to Ebon Daniels.
He started out as my sister’s date. I was instantly infatuated, but had no plans to do anything about it. I even managed to keep my feelings hidden when he took over my Modernist Literature class for the semester. The problems didn’t start until my sister took pages from my book—literal pages from a book I was writing—and gave them to the one person never intended to see them. That’s when the lies started. That’s also when I saw an opportunity to make my only dream become a reality.
How could a lie get me all that I ever wanted and, only a few months later, cost me everything that has ever mattered?
It doesn’t seem possible, but it is. It’s possible, it’s true and it’s tragic. In my book, there is a happy ending, but I don’t know if my life will have the same outcome.
My name is Willow Masters and this is the story of how falling in love with my teacher nearly destroyed both of our lives.
And it still might.
Okay, so honestly, I’m still a bit torn on this one. I just don’t know what to think. There was plenty I dug, though, so that’s a plus. I will say, the synopsis feels too long, given this serial is probably less than 20k words. I’d not read it before I read the book, thankfully. But weirdly enough, I can’t even pinpoint what bugged me about this installment, but there was just something that held me back from totally loving it all the way. Hard to explain, and I don’t want to hint too much at the plot.
So we meet Willow, who has a crush–okay, a bit more than that–on her professor, Ebon. The bigger problem than the fact that he’s her teacher … he’s her twin sister’s boyfriend. So you can see where some issue might lie there. But, even better, there was enough of a twist in there that I really appreciated, and I can’t wait to see where it all goes.
As for the writing, it was well done. The sexy was very sexy. Ebon knows what’s up, that’s for sure. It’s told from alternating POV, so you do get a glimpse into his mind … hot.
I like student-teacher books. A lot. I like any moral dilemmas. Not sure I’d want to dive into that with a therapist anytime soon, but it’s the truth. I liked the secrets, lies, and like I said, there’s a twist that should pull you in and keep you on your toes.
This is such a tricky book/serial to review because it’s short, and I definitely don’t want to give anything away. But I have to say, it’s certainly worth the read. Especially if you’re a fan of steam, conflict, and a bit of deceit. This one will keep you guessing, for sure. I’m looking forward to picking up the next session soon!
