  BLURB: New York Times bestselling author Skye Warren, delivers the sizzling first book in a brand new trilogy, The Professor, a forbidden, student/professor, ex-boyfriend’s dad romance.   It was supposed to be one night with a handsome stranger. I never thought I would see him again. Until the first day of class.   He’s my new professor. And my ex-boyfriend’s father.   He has a world of secrets in his eyes and the weight of the world on his shoulders. I should stay away from him, but the more I try, the more consumed he gets.   His possessiveness is rivaled only by his secretive nature. He knows everything about me, but mystery surrounds him. Shadows threaten the entire university…and our forbidden love.   “Every page of THE PROFESSOR shines with poetry and eroticism. If you love forbidden romances, secret societies and age gap, this book is for you!” - USA Today bestselling author Saffron A. Kent



College student Anne has been determined to pay for her education. Needing to make quick cash, she agrees to go out of her comfort zone to do one night with a stranger. Having what she needs, Anne can now focus on school and having the memories of her childhood and family drama one bus ride away. Little does she know, that night is going to not only affect her present, but also her future.

Walking into her new Shakespeare class, Anne has no idea that the one person who has seen her in her most intimate form is also her professor. If that wasn't enough, he's also her ex boyfriend's father. Things are about to get MESSY.


I really loved that this was a forbidden romance that had some twists and turns. Not only did the heroine and side characters have a past, but the hero as well. I wanted to go more in depth with the main characters but I liked how the author set everything up letting us know that there's a lot more to come in book two. I definitely didn't like how things ended and I feel like it was rushed to give us a shock value but I'm very curious to see how everything is going to play out.

If you're looking for a steamy forbidden student/ teacher mystery romance, then you should give this one a try.

Please note: This ends on a cliffhanger
