Summary: I was never supposed to see him again.
One night of passion with a complete stranger.
My last tryst before senior year.
But I was lost the moment his tempting lips were on my skin.
His intense touch on my body.

It should have ended there.

But he’s not a stranger.
He’s my history teacher.
And wanting him is against the rules.
Off limits.


my-thoughts I received an advanced reader copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I have been doing reviews for awhile now so you all most likely know my favorites. I like taboo love and forbidden love. So this was right up my alley.

Honest to God, I didn’t read the synopsis or anything prior to reading this book. Going in, I had no clue it would contain forbidden love. Somehow, I was able to predict exactly what was going to happen from the get go and that’s why I can only give it 3.5 stars.

Carson and Lynn’s story is great though, just not that original. If you go through my past reads, there are several that follow the same lines as this one.

Lynn and her friends were hanging out at the Hamptons for one last hurrah prior to her senior year of high school. She was suppose to be having the time of her life, but instead she ends up alone at the beach.

Carson, also at the party, was just too bored with the scene. He wanted to start his life, he was tired of the partying. He, too, ended up alone on the beach, or so he thought.

When Lynn and Carson meet, they both were seeing stars. But a few days later, reality struck when Carson turns out to be first period, Mr. Blake. Lynn was shocked to say the least.

However forbidden as their romance was, they were unable to stay away from one another. Drawn together like a moth to a flame. They shared a lot of similarities when it came to their families.

Regardless of the predictable plot, it is still a good read.
