Review: Master Professor

tl;dr: fascinating setting for drawn out forbidden romantic tension


There was already plenty of buzz about this book by the time I got my hands on it. And for good reason.

Madison, however, begins to realize that the daydream of banging her professor and the reality of it are not quite the same, and she needs to do some soul-searching during her 6-week trip.
