When the uniform comes off, there’s no holding back.

Jaycee Hanson has the best seat in the house in Psych 301. Right behind Tyler Johnson, ROTC captain and star of her erotic fantasies. But while lusting from afar, she’s come to one disappointing conclusion: He doesn’t seem to date outside his race.

When an accidental touch near the end of class turns into an impromptu foot rub, the rest of her wet-noodle bones are willing to go anywhere Tyler leads. She just never expected to be led into the nearest stairwell.

Tyler isn’t sure what to make of the smart, beautiful woman in his arms. If he’d had any idea Jaycee was interested in him, he would have made a move long ago. But each time he’s looked her way, she’s avoided his gaze.

A blissful afternoon at his place seems the start of something special—until objections to their relationship arise from an unexpected source. And Jaycee starts to wonder if sizzling sexual chemistry is enough.

Jaycee loved her Psychology 301 class which is held three days a week. Tyler Johnson always sat in the seat directly in front of her and she never failed to get an eyeful of the handsome solider. The ninety minute class always passed far too quickly, and she never managed to retain a word of the lecture. One class though, she can’t help herself, and before she knows it Tyler is fulfilling her every fantasy.

This is a smoking hot read, fast paced and deliciously naughty. I loved how quickly Tyler and Jaycee came together after both admitted they’d been fantasizing all semester about the other. I felt the chemistry was sizzling and when they finally came together it was satisfying and super hot. I was actually impressed with the small twist half way through. I think the author did a great job of turning a cliché onto it’s head and it gave the whole plot a fresh perspective I really enjoyed.

Readers looking for a fast, sexy short story should definitely give this a try. While at a first glance it might look like a typical “horny solider gets the girl” story I found it to be more than that, and ten times hotter than other, similar, stories. I loved the chemistry and connection between Jaycee and Tyler and will happily reread this story a number of times more. Recommended.
