An Inch at a Time (The Professor’s Rule #2) by Heidi Belleau, Amelia C. Gormley

September 13, 2013

James Sheridan is failing history. Luckily, his professor is a rumored pervert, and James isn’t too proud to pay for a better grade with his body. Professor Carson lives up to his reputation, but he’s not unethical enough to take sexual bribes. What he can offer is some highly unconventional tutoring . . . creative use of a ruler included.

The deal? Studying, followed by a “quiz.” Wrong answer? Spanking. Right answer? Reward. Ace the final, earn some mindblowing sex. It’s harder work than sexual bribery, but it beats the volunteer tutors at the student center.

After a few study sessions, James realizes he wants way more than a grade from Professor Carson, even if he’s not sure what that is. Carson’s a silver fox, all right, but James isn’t “bent” the way Carson is, and for him, the spankings are only supposed to be a means to an end. But the better he gets at history, the more he realizes he likes getting answers wrong just as much as getting them right.

This title is #2 of the The Professor’s Rule series.

My Review:

I have two words for this book; brilliant and more. I want more. I loved meeting James and Professor Carson in Giving an Inch. One text message to the wrong number and we were given one hot, controlled and sexy encounter in a dressing room. But what? Why? And How were Carson and James previously involved? I  tickled as pink as a newly spanked history student when I saw that we get the beginning of their story. So. Damn. Excited.

He watched his student’s face carefully, searching for – ah, there it was. A flicker of intrigue that went beyond idle curiosity.

This was more than I could have asked for and it had everything I needed. I loved everything about it from the opening scene to the last “Yes, Professor.”  These two men were insatiable…I am insatiable for more of their story.

The control of Professor Evander Carson was hugely attractive. I love, LOVE how he took tutoring to a whole new level. I couldn’t focus either James, I get it but hot damn I would have loved to be a TA for those sessions. Sure, I did learn a bit of Jacobite Rebellion with them but did I mention they were HOT and once again I read this mostly at my desk at work? When will I learn with this writing pair? Do not read this at work unless you have an office with a door that can be closed and locked. I give you fair warning.

He wanted to play by the professor’s rules, do things his way.

We learn a bit more about our student and professor in this book. Just enough… like foreplay really; it has me wanting more and more. Give it to me already! Please? Pretty Please, Professor?  James, oh James; you slumped in a chair revealing bits about your past, you kill me boy. Just slice open my veins and let me bleed my heart for you. Ugh. I am in love with these two, their roles in and out of the classroom. The passion that sneaks through before that final exam had me with a “SHUT UP!” moment followed by a swoon worthy of an animated princess.

What a great way to go back and give us, give me what I wanted from the moment I read the response to James’ text in Giving an Inch. We now know how the relationship began, how Carson instructed James into new areas of himself but what went wrong? Once again; kudos to this pair of authors for sucking me in and having me begging for more. Well played, ladies. Well played. I know the “how” of their beginnings but now I need to know the “what” of the end. Of course, I am up for the tease in between those two questions. With these boys/men at play,  it will be exquisite torture.

While yes, this was short and sexy I am in love with the writing. Just a few sentences tossed into a scene that had me doing a double read with a highlight and notes to make sure I don’t forget them, as if I could. So yeah, this book was sexy, there was foreplay, there was sex but this was one hell of a brilliantly written book.

…and it was so. Fucking. Good.
