Rome Hard is in love with his ex-teacher, Andy Evergreen. She entered his life ten years ago, and he’s tried to deny his feelings for her, but they won’t disappear.

There’s only one way to solve this: get her to fall in love with him.

She’s never fallen for a student, but Rome isn’t a student anymore. He’s a full-grown man, and he’s intent on making her realize it.

One date, that’s all it’s supposed to be. She never expected what could come next. One look, one touch, and it all leads to more. She should resist him, but how can she turn away from him? He’s everything, and no other man has made her heart race.

Rome’s all in, knowing this woman will be his wife and the mother of his children. But how far is he willing to go?

Will Andy fall for the last Hard boy, or will her fears keep her locked up in her cage?

He’s been waiting for her and she’s been looking for a man like him. Should be an easy pairing, right?


I like the work of Sam Crescent. I know I’ll get a hot story with plenty of interesting characters and will be transported to their world for a while when I read one of her books. This one was no different. It’s quick, hot and full of passion.

I’m a sucker for teacher/student stories. These can be tricky because it can be taboo, but not in this sense. They’re both old enough that the taboo isn’t so bad. I liked that she’s the older character and he’s the younger one, too. The author writes them with an authenticity that’s hard to find and they’re both relatable. She wants to be loved, but she’s afraid and he’s ready to go all in, but he doesn’t want to push her. It’s a well-used trope, but still nicely done in this book. I haven’t read the others in the Hard series, but that isn’t so bad. This book stands alone well, but I do want to go back and read them. I mean, how can you say no to a hot guy–in a book? I can’t.

If you’re looking for something hot, romantic and great for a chilly afternoon, then this is the one for you.
