Theme/TropeTeacher/Student, Taboo


Brooke Blaine and Ella Frank ALWAYS deliver.  These two are on my automatic-read list, both individually and together.  Secrets and Lies is a student-teacher romance, and the student is only 18 – which is a little icky for me, usually I prefer my students in the student-teacher trope to be of drinking age at least – but hey, I pushed through… 🙂  Ryder does seem to be an old soul though, so it’s really not a huge deal.  The chemistry between these two is sizzling, as usual with Brooke and Ella’s stories.  I loved every second of Secrets and Lies, and as usual, I’m left waiting for whatever amazing stories these two bring us next!
