Product Description

When they met online they were equals...Then she walks into his classroom.
For four months Eva March shared almost every secret with a handsome stranger. It was easy when she didn't have to meet his gaze in real life. The online flirtation was fun. She could be a strong, put-together woman without a sordid past. Most importantly, he'd never know the truth.
Grady Addison takes his job as a professor seriously. He doesn't sleep with co-eds, much less his students. Eva doesn't even fit his leggy, peppy blonde requirements, but he can't walk away now. He's spent too much time fantasizing about her, her smile and the way her eyes darken when she thinks of her past. And her past is a problem. The secrets she hasn't yet told him could end his career and for Eva, her life could just come crashing down...again.

4.0 out of 5 stars To One Hundred 9 January 2016
By Kimisan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
** SPOILER **

This is the first book that I've read by this author. It wasn't what I expected. Not in a bad way, but it was a bit deeper than I expected. I kind of thought it would be a fun geeky romance, but a couple of the characters in this book have mental health issues. The heroine attempted suicide during a dark period of her life and she currently suffers panic attacks. The hero's brother is bi-polar and the rest of the hero's "family" seem to have issues that are alluded to, but not specifically addressed (future books).

I found the title odd. But, it's based on some Internet sex game of counting backwards from 100 while engaging in sexual activities with the goal of orgasm at 0. I don't know if this is a real thing or not.

So, Grady is an adjunct instructor at a college. Eva does web work. They meet on a forum for the show "Firefly". They share a love of the show and other "geeky" things. They get to know each other very well over a four month time period, but Eva has strict rules about keeping a certain amount of distance. They've never talked on the phone or met in person, but have exchanged pictures. They are supposed to have an Internet "date" one afternoon, but Eva has to cancel because her sister shows up. As a sort of apology, Eva sends Grady an audio file of her touching herself while engaging in The One Hundred game. He's very hooked.

Then she shows up in his classroom the next day. Her employer has offered to increase her salary if she completes her degree. The story takes off after that classroom meeting.

Grady is all in from the beginning. There's really no hesitation on his part. He doesn't want to hide his relationship with Eva. He doesn't care if it gets him in trouble with the college or starts rumors, etc. Because of his experience with his brother being bi-polar, he knows how to deal with Eva's panic attacks and other issues. He's really a pretty great hero.

Eva is damaged. She's recovered a lot of herself, but still has issues with her sister. Her sister became more of a parental figure after Eva's trauma and attempted suicide and can't break out of the role.

There are all kinds of emotions here. It is a good story. I struggled a bit with the author's writing style. I don't know if it was her phrasing, her punctuation or that I felt like she started a lot of dialogue between characters as if the conversation were in progress. I felt as if I came in part way through a thought and couldn't immediately grasp the meaning. I know there were some punctuation issues - things like missing commas. That bothered me because I had to go back and try to figure out what I missed. It usually turned out that I hadn't missed (or misread) anything and if I kept going anyway, it would eventually make sense.
2.0 out of 5 stars To One Hundred 24 January 2017

To One Hundred sounded like exactly my type of book: student-teacher romance and sexy geeks! Sadly, it let me down. Grady and Eva have been talking online for months. They totally get each other and share a love of Firefly and American History. Then Eva realizes that Grady is going to be her instructor during a summer course, so she confronts him with the intention of saying nothing can happen. Grady doesn't care though and then things get complicated. But not as complicated as I was hoping.

To One Hundred actually started to annoy me very early on when it's revealed why the title is what it is. I won't spoil that, because it is pretty interesting, but it's also wrong. Let's just say that you don't count backward TO one hundred. You count backward FROM one hundred (to one). So that was annoying. But what really kept me from enjoying it was that there was absolutely no drama involving the student-teacher affair. It's brought up at the beginning, they hook up, and then it's five weeks later and suddenly someone is threatening to tell on them. Then they live happily ever after. Seriously. Everything is just glossed over or skipped entirely.

I don't really know what else to say about To One Hundred. I had high hopes, but it didn't meet my expectations at all. There wasn't much of a student-teacher affair. Grady and Eva also weren't all that geeky. Randomly mentioning Firefly a few times is not geeky. Wearing glasses is also not geeky. Being a history teacher who doesn't really care about teaching? Not geeky. It just didn't deliver on any of its promises. At least it was a super short read.
3.0 out of 5 stars Barely 3 * 12 December 2016
By MELISSA CORINNE SENGER - Published on Amazon.com

First off, I loved Grady but was less thrilled with Eva's character, to be honest. SPOILERS

*I can both understand and relate to her mental illness, but the fact that PTSD was never mentioned really annoyed me. The author clearly had a poor concept of mental illness and trauma and while the book at the surface seems "deep," it is mostly just about a girl who is a mess, needs actual treatment for it, needs support which she does find in Grady, but he will never change her core issues. I feel if you're going to deal with mental illness, do it right. Beyond that, she was introduced as this character who had gotten past her crap and was taking charge of her life and I didn't see ANY of that until the very end.

*Another spoiler about Lauren.
Pushing her back to her sister was a horrible plot point. She is written as toxic and narcissistic so this was not a good outcome for Eva. If Eva needs a lesson it's "Stop holding on to things and people you need to let go of. You can't get healthy surrounded by these people!"

I guess I just did not respect her character, the way she treated Grady (though like I said, I personally understand her hang-ups), and then while Grady was amazing and total book boyfriend material, I was disappointed by the "instalove" factor. I don't think it was realistic. And then topping it off with how poorly mental health was handled, I couldn't thoroughly enjoy it because the things that bothered me held my attention more than the plot.

Three stars really only because of how well Grady was written. Oh, and so was Wade! THAT part was well-written!

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME READ: nerd references, realistically flawed characters 8 January 2016
By Leslie Kung - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
l bought this book knowing only that the author included Firefly references. It was all I needed to know in order to invest. But what I discovered when I turned the pages was a startlingly humanizing tale of flawed people doing their best and choosing love above fear. The wonderful thing about this story is that it includes mental health issues in a real way, not playing off damaging stereotypes. If you or anyone you know have suffered panic attacks, anxiety, depression, survived trauma, or lived with bi-polar disorder, this author and this book treat those topics honestly. I came for the gamer/nerd/fandom, and I found a modern romance worth my time and investment. Brava, Melissa Blue.
4.0 out of 5 stars Taboo Relationship Between Student And Professor Complicated by Mental Health Issues and Prior Online Contact 11 December 2016
By Guy Reviewing Romance and More - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
To One Hundred is an interesting character study about taboo, online relationships, and mental health issues. Eva March had a deep dark secret that almost destroyed her. She's only comfortable online in subjects that she liked... Such as an online forum about the TV show Firefly, and there, she made a friend. Four months later, she had to go to summer school, only to find that her online beau was her summer professor Grady Addison. Grady saw no problem a relationship with Eva, but Eva had a panic attack from her own prior trauma. From there on, it's Grady attempting to convince Eva that a romance was worth it and Eva trying to overcome her trauma and accept Grady as well as overcome her sister's disapproval and threats to expose them. Grady was pretty much super-understanding modern man, with almost zero faults except his willingness to violate ethics to be with Eva. Eva's issue... You can read other reviews that spoil it, but it was the center of the issue between them.
