Publisher's Summary

Remington Stringer has never been like most girls. She's outspoken and brazen and wants nothing more than to escape the Nevadan hell hole she calls home.

On the brink of 18, with a deceased mother and a well-meaning, yet absent father, she's been forced to fend for herself. The only person she's ever been able to depend on is her borderline obsessive stepbrother. But even that anchor is quickly becoming a loose cannon.

So when she gets the opportunity to attend the best private school in the state during her senior year of high school, she jumps at the chance. She meets Mr. James there. He's ornery, aloof, and totally irresistible.

Most girls would swoon in secrecy. Most girls would doodle his name with hearts in their notebook. But Remi Stringer has never been like most girls.

Felt unsure of the story it wanted to tell

I bought this one because I am a sucker for naughty teachers, I like Charleigh Rose and think Ramona Master is an excellent narrator. Seriously. Have you heard 44 Chapters About 4 Men? I digress.
I think there was real potential here if the author had chosen to either focus on the stepbrother aspect or the teacher romance. Throwing both in just diverted attention keeping the book from being truly great.
While Ramona killed it once again I have to say I did not love Mark's performance.
Overall I enjoyed it but I am not sure it is worth that precious one credit a month.

Unconventional Romance

Misbehaved by Charleigh Rose is a taboo romance between an underage high school girl and one of her teachers. I loved the narrators’ performances on the audiobook. Mark Kamish and Ramona Master were both excellent. They really made the story come alive.

Equally impressive is the author’s writing. I appreciated that there were just enough descriptions to make the characters interesting without excessive focus on minutia that can drag a story under. The dialogue seemed natural for her characters. The use of dual points of view worked well for the story layout given the premise and age difference of the characters. Without both perspectives, the story wouldn’t work.

While I appreciated the narrators’ talents and the author’s writing skill, I did not enjoy the story premise. I can abide by a student/teacher romance in college, but there is no level of suspension of disbelief that would make me enjoy a relationship between a 17-year-old girl and a grown man who is not only her teacher, but an attorney. Kudos to Ms. Rose for having her character, Pierce James, acknowledge the multiple ways his attention to his new student, Remington Stringer, is inappropriate. And yet, he allows himself to succumb to his student’s advances knowing it will destroy his teaching career.

Remington, who comes from an unstable, impoverished family, has found her way to a posh private school. Her vulnerability should make her likable and empathetic. I wanted to root for the downtrodden girl who was trying to better herself through education; however, I found her behavior too trampy and brazen. Instead of being a focused student (as she is stated to have been in the past), she acts the siren flaunting her sexuality and forwardly flirting with her teacher. She has no regard for how her behavior will impact his career or her aspirations to go to college and get out of her hellish domestic situation.

The addition of a gay love story between secondary characters was interesting as a contemporary twist to the teacher/student romance premise. The side story allowed the author to portray Remi and her gay friend as rebel outsiders in an outwardly conservative school. It also allowed the author to paint Remington as a good-person-at-heart when she alone champions her friend.

The story is conveniently wrapped up with an improbable twist that allows for a HEA for everyone. Overall, good quality writing and excellent narration, but the story line did nothing for me.

It was an interesting premise

I think it had moments that I really liked and the story had potential to be one of my favorites. Unfortunately, the whole step-brother thing really made me uncomfortable. Then the whole emotional/physical abuse almost made me quit.

I loved the dynamic of the main relationship and because of them I got through the story. It wasn't a fuzzy story, but it is for the most part a fun one.

Great student-teacher romance, okay narration. 4⭐️

This was my first book by Charleigh Rose and it made a complete fan out of me. The characters are vibrant, real, and relatable. The story is excruciating in the best way. It tugged at every emotion I had and had me devouring the pages as fast as I possible could. Beautifully tragic and deliciously dirty. That's what this book is, but it's also so, so much more.

I completely loved the characters in the book. Remi is such an awesome character. Such a great contrast between teenage angst and an old soul. Pierce is just EVERYTHING. He’s sexy, brooding and forbidden. The connection between Remi and Pierce is genuine and palpable. And don’t even get me started on the sexual tension because wow! Charleigh Rose puts a fresh spin on the student/teacher romance tripe with her special brand of likable a-hole characters, touches of humor, and a love story that feels real. Add in a few secrets and twist and you’ve got a story you can’t miss.

Narration was by done by Ramona Master and Mark Kamish. It was my first time listening to both narrators, but I enjoyed their narration. Ramona Masters did a great job as Remi. She sounded youthful without coming off as childish and brought out Remi’s vulnerability and strength. Mark Kamish as Pierce was good. Honestly, he felt a bit too old for the character with was a bit distracting, but I soon found myself lost in the character and story and so he won me over. 4 Stars.

Felt like a cheap knock off of Dark Notes

I love taboo books. I was so excited when I seen this story about a student and teacher. I was hoping for an original story, however it felt like a cheap knock off of Dark Notes by Pam Godwin. I say knock off because it felt like she was trying to follow the same storyline, but it fell so flat. It was predictable to a laughing amount and the narrators were not a good fit at all. They both sounded so much older than the characters ages, and the male’s voice was not sexy at all.
