Publisher's Summary

Attending King University was at the top of my bucket list. Falling in love with my professor wasn't. 

Earning a full scholarship to King University was my hard-earned ticket out of hell. I'm happy to be away from the small town I grew up in and all the equally small-minded people who live there. 

King was going to be my safe haven. A place where I could leave the old me behind and finally grow into the young man my family had desperately tried to hide away. 

Diving head first into new experiences, new friends, and parties, I didn't expect to run straight into the one thing I wasn't ready for.

His arms are welcoming, his body is addictive and his lips are heaven. Cole Huxley is everything I could fall in love with, except for one problem...I never wanted to fall for my professor.

Contains mature themes.

A magnificent audiobook.

This book is magnificent , everything I want and need in a book was there.
I was completely drawn into the lives of Cole and Elijah so much so I couldn’t let them go when I had finished.
This is my second book by Marley Valentine and Marley can write such an intriguing and emotional book .
These guys are outstanding in their ways to want what they have ,trying to keep what they have and to have more ? Can it continue?
After reading this wonderful book I bought the audiobook which is utter perfection.
Narration by Aiden Snow and Cooper North is perfectly perfect.

Amazing Listen! Well worth the wait!

I devoured this audiobook! I loved Elijah & Cole's Story. This age Gap/Forbidden romance totally delivered. Cooper North was amazing as Elijah & Aiden Snow was perfect as Cole.

I loved this book! The story was amazing which is no surprise to me. I haven't met a book written by Marley Valentine yet, that I'm not in love with! I listened to this one. I love Cooper North and Aiden Snow and I did really enjoy their performances.

Forbidden Love is sometimes the best kind of love

ABSOLUTELY FANTATSTIC!

Marley Valentine delivers another emotionally gripping love story of self discovery, sacrifices and forbidden love. Everything about Elijah and Cole's relationship was "wrong" - there was the age-gap aspect and the student/professor issue, as well as the fact that they were of the same sex - which in the eyes of Elijah's parents was the biggest sin of all. Cole and Elijah experienced a very different upbringing, but they both ended up in the one place that would change the course of their lives - King University.

Elijah was from a conservative town and even more conservative family. His father was a "preacher" whose religious beliefs were outdated and biased. When he caught his only son locking lips with another boy, he punished him by treating him differently as if something was wrong with him, Cole was a man who never hid who he was. He came from a home in which he was accepted and loved, and had a close relationship with his mother and sister. When Cole and Elijah's lives collided, "literally," they never expected the rush of emotions that would come crashing soon after.

While I enjoyed both characters very much - I LOVED Elijah. He was such an amazing person. Coming from a home and town where he didn't have the support to be who he was, Elijah never lost his love of religion. Being that religion played such a big role in the way his own parents perceived him I would've thought he would resent religion and not want anything to do, but his faith was so much stronger than any certitude of sin. Elijah didn't try to change who he was or who he chose to love. He didn't let his father's perception of what was right and wrong destroy his own faith of who he is. I love Elijah's honesty and the innocence that still lived within him. At times I felt that Elijah was even more mature than Cole. He was realistic and accepted that their relationship was complicated and unconventional and could lead to heartache and heartbreak.

Devilry is the second book in the King's University Series, but the first one that I read/listened to. I loved Elijah and Cole, but I also really enjoyed the secondary characters. It was really touching to see the friendships that developed and how those friendships turned into family.

All in all, this was a really hot forbidden romance. There were some very intense, steamy parts that had me turning the AC on high. The narrators, Aiden Snow and Cooper North, sure did an amazing job bringing to steamy scene to life. I will definitely be reading the other two books in the series.

Great story and narration

I’m a sucker for teacher/student. Marley Valentine and the narrators deliver all the way on this one. Cooper North is perfect for a young college student, although a mature one. Aiden Snow nails the stern professor who is really a softy deep down. Loved this and recommend it for an audio treat.

Devilry

I absolutely love, listening to this book. The storyline is on point and sucks you into Cole and Elijah’s budding romance. I love the fact that age never plays a role in their relationship. The only thing that of interest is their accomplishments in life so far. I do admire Elijah’s strength and courage to standing up to his parents about his personal life. Mostly I love how they handle their relationship. They have had that communication were honesty and truth were on a pedestal. Above all I love how they both learned from each other.

Wow…

This is my second book that I’ve listened to by Marley Valentine, and I can’t wait to try more!
I, like another reviewer, was a little unsure about the age gap thing but as the story developed, I definitely became more comfortable with it. It was very well done. And HOLY SWEATING 🥵 HOT BELLS, was there some burning 🔥 🔥🔥🔥🔥moments of chemistry and sexy ness!! Okay there was lots of moments like that, but if you enjoy that as much as I do you will be very happy with this book!!
And to top it all off, the team of narrators was amazing!

Absolutely worth the credit!

Oh my! Where do i start! I wasn't too sure to be honest with the college student and professor. I'm not put off one bit with a 13 yr age difference, I just wasn't sure how I'd feel about him being an 18/19 year old and I was dreading seeing any immaturity in Elijah's character. Thankfully, this wasn't the case at any point. The story was told in such an amazingly, beautiful and tasteful way. You could Feel the genuine love and respect they had for one another. No silly immature game play in this at all. Just straight up pure love and devotion. Narrated by 2 of my favourites, Aiden Snow who's voice just tops everyone when it comes to projecting pure guttural sexual emotion *Swoon* and Cooper North...The perfect voice for Elijah. A grown up innocence. Wothout a doubt, the perfect duo.
I absolutely loved this book and will absolutely be reading it again in the very near future. Purely for the good feelings it exubes.
Well done Marley Valentine!
