Reading Between The Wines . . . November 13, 2018

 

The idea was just too novel to pass up. I enjoy drinking wine, and I enjoy reading, so combining these two loves of mine was a no-brainer. This week, I have a few new authors to introduce you to. Hope you’ll enjoy reading their words between sipping your favorite vino. I certainly will!

 

THE MUSE by L.M. HALLORAN

“A scorching hot Professor/Student Romance that burns up the pages!” — L.V. Lewis

In her final year of graduate school, Iris Eliot’s dreams are within reach. She’s ready to put the past behind her and embrace whatever the future brings.

Until the future brings him.

Professor James Beckett, bestselling author and award-winning poet, is the new head of the Creative Writing Department at her university. Brilliant and obnoxiously sexy, he’s more dangerous than Iris knows.

When Beckett sets his sights on Iris, it’s not just her heart on the line or her academic and professional careers. Surrendering to the way he makes her feel will rewrite her past.

My Review

Beckett and Eliot. The surnames were apropos to their vocations. Both writers, one a professor, the other his student and TA. This is a recipe for forbidden, hot romance. These two have an immediate chemistry which neither expects given their stations and the fact that he’s found himself in this position once before. Yet, Iris’s secrets, once finally revealed are served up with a healthy dose of betrayal that she just doesn’t see coming. There is much that one can criticize about this book, but it serves up exactly the recipe of romance, conflict and complications one would expect from just such a genre romance. Suspending disbelief allows one to enjoy this story for what it is: an achingly hot romance between two consenting adults, despite the secrets that could destroy them both.
