Publisher's Summary

The name on the screen was "Absinthe".

But I knew her as the sultry voice blowing up my phone for late-night chats about Proust and Hemingway interspersed between the filthiest little...mutually satisfying exchanges...I'd ever experienced in my life. We'd never met. Until the day she walked into my office, her cherry lips wrapped around a candy apple sucker and an all too familiar voice that said, "You wanted to see me, Principal Hawthorne?"

Author's note: This full-length romance is a complete stand-alone and contains subject matter that may trigger sensitive listeners. All characters are adults, and all interactions are consensual.

The perfect trifecta

This Audio has just made my top three of 2017. It was everything I want in an Audio and more. It kept me glued to my earphones even at work. The story was hot and gripping. The taboo just enough to add the angst and drama you would expect in a May-December relationship. I love it when the author makes a younger character smart and capable. The character development was done to perfection. Both narrators nailed it. The female narrator was intoxicating and I found her just as appealing as I found the male narrator performing Ford. It was the perfect length, perfect narrators, and the perfect Author. The trifecta for a five star audiobook..

Couldn't put it down!

Wanted more, more detail on both characters would have been better. But the narrating from both actors was amazing. story line addicting.

awesome story and beautifully told

This is awesome story and beautifully told. Once I started, I couldn't stop listening. The story is well developed with a good pace to give the listener enough without giving too much tension. I'm glad that it's not too long so I can listen in one evening. If you are a sucker for romance, this story is for you!

Taboo romance. 1POV. HEA standalone.

⚠️Very slight trigger warning child abuse.

This is a Sexy romance with a large dose of taboo and opposites attract-and a smidge of troubled pasts. Taboo bc the lady is 18 and in high school and the man is 28 and will be her principal. She comes from a poor family that did drugs and abused her. Her rich uncle takes her in and now she is a former poor girl, out of place in a rich neighborhood. She “meets” the man online on a local dating app, however the two haven’t met each other yet, and don’t know each other’s real names. Their online romance grows over the summer and once school starts the couple realize who each other are once they Physically meet in school.

Although their relationship is taboo, the student/principal relationship isn’t quite the leading drama.

Misunderstandings part their paths for five years, where they don’t have any contact with each other. Fast forward five years and their story begins again.

It’s a pretty easy listen, with the level of angst settling around “tolerable”.

The narration is great! There is a part in the book where Douglas Berger does some extreme dirty talking and it’s...well...🤤. Yes. I used an emoji to describe it. Bc there are no words. Brooke is great as always too. The HEA is fulfilling, set two years in the future.

This was definitely a great listen.
