As an English professor at an Ivy League university, I’m at the top of my profession, but something’s missing. I gave up my artistic dreams to pursue an academic career. And I’m still haunted by the scars of my past.
I enjoy breaking the rules and doing what I damn well please. And a dangerous infatuation’s blooming—Darcy’s intelligent, innocent, and virginal. I long to be her first, to teach her every wicked thing I know.
There’s just one problem—she’s my student, the ultimate forbidden fruit.
I lead a well-ordered life with to-do lists and schedules. I always do the safe thing, make the right choices. I’ve made all my plans—got accepted into a master’s degree program, and I even have a graduate assistantship lined up.
Although, I long to be an author, like my father, but it’s not a stable career. Yet, I can’t stop thinking about seeing my name on a book cover.
To make matters worse, I keep my thinking about my sexy professor—he’s got a British accent, an attitude, and a bad boy streak. I hang on his every word. When we get close, all my barriers and rules break down. He’s encouraging me to throw caution to the wind and chase my dream. Can I let go? Have the life I want and the man I long for?
Joy Ride is a steamy, forbidden romance with a panty-melting alpha hero, and a satisfying HEA. There are elements of a virgin romance, as well as a professor student romance.
The Ride Series is about four best friends (Kate, Poppy, Darcy, and Iris) who are about to graduate from college. They've vowed to have one last gasp, before adulting for real. Each of them is at a crossroads in life. Where will the road ahead lead?
