ABOUT THE BOOK
Opposites attract like a magnet to steel, or in this case, Emerson to Steel.
Emerson Powers has been so focused on obtaining her science degree that she’s neglected the more social aspects of college life. With the new start of her junior year, she’s determined to fix that with a real hands-on lesson in biology. The assignment is simple enough—teach the rock star’s son how to be good, while he shows her how to be very bad. Two objectives, one outcome … will the lesson be love or heartbreak?
Steel is no longer the bad boy Emerson knew from prep school, and he’s set to prove it by helping Emerson complete her secret list of desired college experiences. And if he can convince her that they are meant to be together along the way, even better!
While teaming up on experiments, both in and out of the classroom, Emerson discovers a new side to Steel. Leaving her to question everything she thought she knew. Still, is it enough to forgive the past or just mere chemistry?
I am a big fan of Tara September’s novellas and couldn’t wait to read the second book in the Lesson in Love series.
Emerson Powers is smart, studious and an avid list maker. Now that she’s in college away from her father’s controlling tendencies she’s ready to spread her wings as a true life college student. In other words, her “up to no good list”. Who better to help her complete her list than the former bad boy from her prep school, Steely Nash. First of all, what is he doing at her college, and secondly, why is he hanging around her?
Steel Nash is the son of a rock star and a reformed alcoholic and addict who is at this particular college because of the girl who changed his life. He’s been attracted to this brainy girl with her beautiful blue eyes and big glasses from the moment she showed him around prep school on his first day. However, he burned his bridges with her back then. Now that he’s cleaned up his act and finally found her, he’s ready to do anything to win her over. Unfortunately, she still thinks he’s that douche from prep school and he has to step up his game.
Who doesn’t love the geeky girl and the popular bad boy story? Steel is my hero. He has rehabilitated himself because Emerson made him want to be a better man. He’s considerate, protective, funny, sexy, and is head over heels in love with her. Emerson is bright and knows what she wants. Who couldn’t resist a man after her own heart? His lovely confessions to her are so heartfelt and endearing. However, I love how she doesn’t fall for him right away because he has to win her trust, and adding the list is a genius way to bring them together. I mean what man in love would not want to make sure that #7 on the list was his and his alone? From the execution of the epic prank to the frat party limbo contest, their chemistry ignites and there’s no turning back. As much as I loved this book, I was frustrated with the abrupt switch to the epilogue. After all that steamy build-up to complete the last item on the list, it was left out. Sigh! I also felt Steel’s story needed more closure, but I won’t give away what that means.
Overall, I enjoyed Emerson and Steel’s fun story with a questionable list, hilarious antics, and heartfelt confessions. Please see more of my reviews for Tara September at One More Kiss which is book 1 in the series and about Emerson’s friend April, Mine to Five, and Don’t Start Now.
Thank you to Ms. September for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
