This is the second book in the Ivy Lessons series.
An older man / younger woman taboo romance simmers between a strict teacher and his young pupil … and it’s time to disobey…
When Sophia first meets Hollywood actor and Ivy College teacher, Marc Blackwell, she never dreams they’ll share a forbidden, May to December romance. Now, dawn is breaking and they’ve decided to tell the world of their affair.
But as paparazzi hound Sophia’s every move, Marc steps up his control – dominating Sophia in every way possible, and drawing her into his dark world of intensity and passion.
Soon, Sophia is led into Marc’s troubled past, and shown the shadowy secrets that torment him.
However, Marc’s desire to discipline Sophia awakens her deepest fears, and she realises it’s time to disobey.
I enjoyed reading this book. The characters are great and the story was good.
I absolutely love Marc Blackwell. I love how much he cares for Sofia and how he does everything he can to protect her. He didn’t listen to her views though and made decisions for her which was what pushed Sofia to disobey him. It’s what they needed for their relationship to get on the right track.
I love Sofia and how she stuck up for herself. It was hard when they separated, but she was right that she needed to make her own choices, mistakes or otherwise. I like how Marc still gave her guidance and lessons, even when they weren’t together. He still protected her. He still protected her from the paparazzi the best that he could. Sofia ultimately proved him wrong and he knew it.
It was so good seeing them get back together. They never stopped loving one another and they needed the break for it to ultimately work out for the best.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it.
My rating: 5/5*
