Let me start out by saying that K. Webster is one of my favorite authors. The woman is a genius in my eyes. As a reviewer or a blogger there will be times when a book comes along by one of your favorite authors that you just don’t love. It sucks, but it is what it is. I have to be honest and say that this was one of those times for me. This is mostly a case of this novella just not being for me than it is a 3 star read. I think my personal preferences got in the way of me truly loving this story. It was well written, well-paced, had great steamy scenes and a decent plot. The problem for me was the characters.
Aut Banks is a popular boy in his senior year of high school. One day, his favorite teacher is replaced by a timid, but beautiful woman, Maise Macmillian. When she has no luck getting the class under control on her first day, Aut steps in and gets everyone settled down and focused.
He has ulterior motives for helping her out. From the moment he laid eyes on her, he wanted to sleep with her and begins to flirt with her almost immediately. One day he gets brave and takes it a step further. Will she respond or tell him to take a seat?
This story was originally published in the Hot for Teacher Anthology : Nineteen Stories Filled with Love and Lust. I am including this information, because somehow I failed to realize that when I requested an ARC for this novella. I already own said anthology, and had already attempted to read this story before. I quit reading the first time, because I just wasn’t feeling it. Since I requested it, I decided to give it another go. This time I made it the whole way through, and while it was an okay read, my feelings remained pretty much the same.
As I said before, the characters in this story bothered me so much that it affected my overall enjoyment. I especially disliked Maise’s character. She is just one of the weakest female characters I have ever read about. Aut’s nickname for her is Turtle for Christ sake! By the way, how is that hot? She is being abused, so maybe I am just an awful person for feeling this way. At any rate, she just kind of goes along with whatever Aut wants to do like some “love” struck teenager. Honestly, the way she behaved had me rolling my eyes, and that is mostly because I didn’t care for him either.
Aut is a cocky kid that acts like he thinks he is a man. Let me tell you something, if an 18 year old kid came up to me acting like he did and saying the things he did, I would laugh in his baby face! Boy, sit down!! LOL Just NO! He also has sex with another girl during the course of the 99 pages, and he is a pretty big jerk to her. I like asshole heroes, but I know a lot of people don’t, so I decided to mention it. Regardless, he didn’t have enough redeeming qualities to make me like him otherwise.
If I could have dealt with the characters, then this would have been a great novella to read in between full length novels. The writing is superior to many short stories I have read, and the sex is hot. I love dirty talkers and cocky alphas which is what Aut is, albeit a very young one. If you like taboo reads, and you don’t have an aversion to the type of characters I described, then you will probably love this story! If all you are looking for is a little smut, then I think you will love it! If you love the older woman/younger man trope, you will probably love it! Bottom line, if this novella interested you, give it a try. You may have a different opinion. Practically every review I have read for Schooled by a Senior is 4 or 5 stars. I am the odd man out. Go pick up a copy and see what you think!
