Erotic Goes Old School
Love smolders and the sex is red hot when Cassianna Baxter leaves behind a glamorous teaching career in Italy to return to her old Alma Mater, Lewiston Academy for Girls as the Deputy Head Mistress.
No sooner does she arrive at the Academy than she walks smack into sexy Lawrence Taylor, her first love and ex lover.
He’s been looking for her ever since he was forced to leave her and now that she is back at the Academy he knows he has to win her back. And not just in his bed.
Cassianna has been away for 12 long years. Her first love vanished and then so did she. Moving to Europe she becomes a teacher and moves on with her life. When an opportunity to return to her alma mater as the Deputy Headmistress arises she does not even have to think twice about it. She loved Lewiston Academy and everything about it, what she had loved most (the man she loved) is no longer there so she has no worries.
What are the chances that he has returned, is on the Board of Trustees, and he runs into Cassianna on her first day back?! Talk about coincidence and quite the H-O-T reunion….on her desk nonetheless. Lawrence seems to have the same effect on Cassianna aka “Cassie” as he did when they were lovers.
Lawrence was amazing!! He was sweet, passionate, considerate, and overall a gentleman (who apparently is amazing in bed ;) ) He doesn’t push Cassianna but slowly shows her who he is and what he has to offer.
There was no denying the chemistry that these two shared. I could feel it as their reunion brought back all of the emotions of love and hate that they have for each other. Cassianna could not let this get in her way.
“Memories belonged in the past. They had both moved on. Strictly professional.”
She tries to make this her mantra however they cannot deny what is happening between them. There was an air of mystery throughout this story. We know why Cassianna left all those years ago. She blames Lawrence for her broken heart however she does not want to bring it up and ruin what is returning. Lawrence seems to feel the same. He doesn’t want to put any chinks in their second chance.
Will they be able to overcome their history with each other as well as their history with others? It has been a long 12 years for both of them, they have grown, moved on and change. Can they make room for each other and finally listen to the truth?
I can say that you will be happy to find out. I enjoyed these characters, they were a bit more mature and seasoned and holy hell was the sex hot ;)
