Students are begging to be held after class...
Andie Lincoln is madly in love with Terrence Knight--her childhood friend-turned-Hollywood's newest golden boy. But he's a Dominant and wants her trained as a submissive before he'll consider a relationship with her. He enrolls her at the RACK Academy with strict instructions for her teachers: Do whatever you need to, but don't take her virginity.
Fulton Matthews, the director of incoming students, is enthralled by Andie. Though he questioned her enrollment at first, watching her discover her submissive nature is hotter than his most intense fantasy. Under his control, her sexual awakening brings him to his knees.
Yet they can go only so far. Andie belongs to another, and Fulton is bound by a contract that strictly forbids relationships between teachers and students. But when Terrence comes to collect his prize, Fulton discovers it's not easy to let Andie go. . .
Master Professor hit all my romance buttons and keep me reading non-stop to the end.
I love a great D/s romance but when you through in a forbidden elemental into it, it’s all more enjoyable. Tara Sue Me does this with the first book, Master Professor, in her Lesson From the RACK series. I really enjoyed how Andie and Fulton’s relationship slowly built with a slow burn that lead up to a HEA.
Andie is a 23 year-old virgin (I know but trust me it’s not a huge issue) who is in love with her best friend, Terrence. He is a big Hollywood actor and off on location a lot. They have been friends for years and their friendship has slowly moved into the romantic area. Before they take their relationship to the next level he tells Andie that he is a Dom. She’s stocked and researches the lifestyle and wants to attend a summer session at an infamous BDSM school to be trained as his sub. They have an agreement that Andie has a free pass for the summer to experience anything sexually while she is training. Well all but one thing, she make the condition that she will keep her v-card.
That promise becomes harder and harder after Andie meets her professor, Master Fulton Matthews. There is an instant attraction but Fulton holds back because she’s a student and a virgin. She holds back because she’s promised herself to Terrence. No cheating happens! At least none within the terms that Terrence and Andie set up before she goes to the school for the summer. The cheating is more emotional than physical so some may have issues with it but I didn’t. I never really felt like Andie and Terrence was a couple. They were more like friends who thought they should become more. If you can get past the thought of any kind of cheating, Andie and Fulton is the true couple you will root for in this weak love triangle.
Master Professor is the first book I’ve read in a while where I sat down and read it in basically one sitting. I only stopped for bathroom breaks. It’s also the first book by Tara Sue Me I’ve read and I can say that as I want for the second book in the series to release. While I wait I’ll start on her Submissive series.
After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.
While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
