Product Description

Product Description

Eighteen is hard.
And so is Mateo Alesci.
Hard to read, hard to predict, hard in every way that counts.
He wants things from me.
Dirty things, nasty things, forbidden things.
And I have to give in.
His attention is completely inappropriate, but I can’t say no.
The way he looks at me… the way he watches me through my bedroom window… the way he drags me deeper and deeper into his completely forbidden fantasy just… turns me on.
He knows it turns me on.
He holds all the power. He holds all the cards. He holds my entire future in his hands.
And I have to give in.
Because Mr. Alesci is my teacher.
And I need everything he’s offering.

WOW! What a wild ride. I felt every emotion reading this book, anger, shock, disgust, fear, lust, family bond, - it's a definite roller coaster. And not an easy read but a good one. This is the first book I have read by J A Huss, because of the reviews I decided to give it a go and I'm pleased I did, although there were parts which made me uncomfortable. This is not your typical story of a forbidden love between a teacher and his student. It gets down and dirty pretty quick and just continues to get hotter and more extreme before you really understand the complexity of the characters. In fact, the lust so early on is a derailment in some ways because you don't understand the characters til at least half way through the book. So hang in there.
Mateo Alesci is the hot 28 year old teacher who has been asked to give extra trig lessons to 18 year old Shannon. She has had a hard time of it in her short life, but she is fiesty and super smart. Mateo has his own secrets and problems, and he needs total control especially of Shannon. Sometimes I felt Shannon was like a pin ball in a machine being sprung everywhere - but then I remembered she's only 18 and that's the point. It's mean at times I wanted to pull her in for a big hug. At first I have to admit I wasn't too keen on Mateo, he was so domineering when it came to Shannon and slightly abused his position In the teacher role but his character shows great depth and as you slowly peel off the onions layers you realise there is a lot more to him. Shannon also meets Sunday, whom she strikes up a really good friendship with and he looks after Shannon and keeps an eye out for her at all times. I love that Sunday was a real guy. This book is a great read and is made all the more interesting to find that it is based on a true story (90% + embellishments according to the authors note at the back). Highly recommended.

This was new. Certainly different. Very, very HOT!
When I first went into this book, I thought it was going to be a Teacher - Student affair, sneaking around, the anticipation of being caught.. so on.
I was WAY off.
Not only is this book based partially on JA Huss' life, which is like readers crack, lets be honest here. Not every day we get a glimpse into the world of one of these fantastic Authors. So the fact that it is based on a true story has you questioning the WHOLE way through - Whats real!? did that REALLY happen!?
And holy crap let me tell you! This book is HOT! and not only that, but its full of SO MUCH DRAMA. Seriously, whos life is this?
So. No this is not your typical JA Huss book (apart from the sexiness) but its a great story. I am certainly looking forward to her next book.

This is being 18, facing life & its challenges & one of them happens to be Mateo. I just didn't know what to make of him & it is later revealed he has his his hands in many pies. How he managed all that I don't know. A definite mystery man alpha, domineering & a control freak. I didn't get him or the whole thing for awhile & it took me awhile to get into the story & meaning. So yes in the end it is all revealed & then I totally got it.

The author explains her vision & journey in writing this book & it is a very good story. Bear with it you'll enjoy it. Shannon what can I say she was just so selfless. A bad start through her teenage years. An amazing character. I didn't really think about it being taboo - a teacher/student relationship, I looked past it.

What a silly story-line, even if its semi true. The ramblings of the author about "how hot I became" are unimaginative and in the end boring. The girl from the wrong side of the tracks besotting some rich, genius, guy "who had 10 years on me" (stated ten thousand times) is not written in a way that's believable (even if it is) or even interesting.
Great book for teens and those who want silly romance (if you could call it that).

I really really hate it when I read over and over again in reviews, "I couldn't put it down". It really annoys me, can't they think of anything original? Guess what?.............."I couldn't put it down!!!!" This book was amazing. Like nothing I have read before. Didn't know what to expect from the title, maybe a teenage love story. Oh no, this was raw, gritty, hardcore. Yes the sex was hardcore too! You want to know where is the story heading and how will it end. Twists and turns, heartache, heaps of laughs, unique storyline. But this book and go on a amazing journey with Shannon.

Well of course it's more, it has the JA Huss spin to it!
Literally. Even when you think you know what's going on, you don't really and I love those plot twists that force you to lower the book and just stare, sightless and dazed as you try to wrap your brain around the new turn of events. It's compelling, it's dark and yet there's light and sweetness. Everything you can expect from a Hiss story to blow your mind.

This is the first book I have read by J A Huss, it won't be the last !!!!
Loved this story of a forbidden love between a teacher and his student.
Whereas in most forbidden books, which by the way are one of my favourite genre, things build up slowly, they tip toe around each other, sharing furtive glances. Not in this book !!!!!! It gets down and dirty pretty quick and just continues to get hotter and hotter !!!
Mateo Alesci is the hot 28 year old teacher who has been asked to give extra trig lessons to 18 old Shannon. She has had a hard time of it in her short life, but she is fiesty with a smart mouth on her. Mateo has his own secrets and problems, and boy is he a dominant one !!! Doesn't like to take no for an answer and likes his own way and to play mind games with Shannon. I just wanted to pull Shannon in for a big hug, I really felt for this girl. At first I have to admit I wasn't too keen on Mateo, how he approached Shannon was a little bit weird for me but he certainly grew on me especially when his softer loving side comes out. Shannon also meets Sunday, whom she strikes up a really good friendship with , and he looks after Shannon and keeps an eye out for her at all times. I think Sunday was my favourite really, loved his attitude to everything and thought he and Shannon fitted well together .So who does she end up with, if anyone ? This book is a total must read and is made all the more interesting to find that it is based on a true story. Hell Yeah !!!!!!!!!! Why weren't my school days like this lol Seriously, a well written story and one I would recommend without hesitation !!!
