Bad Teacher By Clarissa Wild

Title: Bad Teacher
Author: Clarissa Wild
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: June 28, 2016


My name is Thomas and I’m always hard.
No really, that’s my last name. Thomas Hard, the pleasure is all mine … literally.
I can’t help it that my name suits me well.
You know what else suits me well? That girl sitting across the bar, with her lips right where I tell them to be. I want her, and when I want something, it’s gonna be mine.
One night. No names. No phone numbers. Just me, her, and pure pleasure.
Except, that one girl turns out to be the biggest mistake of my life.
Because I broke my cardinal rule …
Never bang a student.

*Author’s note: Don’t like reckless decisions & unbridled screwing? Don’t love girls that are obsessed with ice cream, rainbows, and unicorns? Don’t enjoy a bit of corny humor sprinkled on top? Then this book is not for you. And last but not least, if you hate cats with giant jewels … Don’t even bother.*

He reaches into his pocket.

Something inside starts to vibrate.

I squeal.

Everyone turns around.

Thomas places his finger on his own lips and shushes me.

“Don’t make a sound.”

“What the fuck?” I say.

“Shh … not so loud. You don’t want everyone here to know you have a butt plug in your ass, do you?” he whispers.

“Is that thing vibrating? Oh, my god.” My pupils dilate and then I growl, “You’re doing this.”

“Yes, I am. I needed to make a point here.”

“What point?” I shudder and clench my legs from the vibration, which pulses through me, causing delicious thumps.

Fuck. How am I supposed to concentrate on the conversation? How am I supposed to eat my damn venison if I can’t lift a damn fork without shaking?

“You are mine, Hailey. Whether you think you are or not doesn’t matter. When I say you’re mine, you’re mine completely. No one, and I mean no one, is going to touch you. I don’t share what belongs to me.”

“I don’t belong—”

“You belonged to me the moment I stuck my tongue into your pussy, and you know it,” he growls softly. “You think I’m playing around, don’t you? I’m not. I may not want to define whatever the fuck it is we’re doing here, but that doesn’t make me any less of a greedy motherfucker. And I am fucking greedy when it comes to you. That’s a problem of mine that I’m willing to admit now, having you on my mind every goddamn second of the day, wishing I could stick my tongue in your pussy and then my cock until I hear you scream my name. I also finally came to terms with the fact that I am one jealous asshole, and you won’t like me one bit when I’m jealous, Hailey, so don’t you make me one by letting other boys get a taste.”

I’m baffled.

I don’t even know what to say.

Completely fucking speechless, that’s what.

And I don’t even know if I’m supposed to take this as a compliment or a threat.

Judging by the sensations between my legs, I guess it’s good either way.

Not that I still have a choice in the matter. The more he talks, the more I want him to shut up and kiss me.

Now, I know what Lesley means when she’s talking about alpha men. He’s the prime example.

“Did you understand all that, Hailey?”

“Um … yes? I guess?” I say, licking my lips from the tightness in my ass that I’m suddenly very aware of, considering we’re in a restaurant.

The vibrating increases in intensity, making me squirm in my seat.

“Not. Good. Enough,” he growls. “Tell me exactly what you won’t be doing.”

“I won’t be seducing guys or letting anyone else touch me.”


“I belong to you, even though we aren’t boyfriend and girlfriend.”

“Exactly. And when I ask you to tell me something, you will tell me.”

“Fine, yes,” I whisper, breathing heavily through my mouth to cope with the increased pleasure I’m feeling down below. Goddamn. It feels so wrong inside a restaurant.

“Yes, what?” He pulls the item from his pocket and shows it to me. “Or do you want me to turn this up a notch?”

“Yes, Sir!” I say, a little bit louder than intended, causing people to turn their heads.

He smiles wickedly. “Good.”

The vibrating loses its power, but it doesn’t stop completely.

“Why are you doing this?” I mutter. “We’re in a fucking restaurant.”

“I don’t care where we are. I will give you pleasure whenever I want, wherever I want. Because… let’s face it, that wasn’t really punishment, was it? Tell me the truth.” he muses, placing the item on the table in full view. Goddamn, it feels like a jab. Like he knows he owns me or something. Of course, he does. I know it too. I just wish I could own him too.

I sigh and pat my dress, trying to regain whatever’s left of my self-control. “Yes, Sir … I kinda liked it.”

“Hmm … that’s my good girl.”

Just those words … they do something to me.

Especially the part when he says ‘my.’

It makes my stomach flutter.

Thomas picks up his fork and takes a few more bites before putting it down again. Then he looks at me, at my plate, my fork, and points. “Are you done?”

I nod, trying to act as normal as possible while my ass feels like it’s on fire.

“Then let’s get outta here.”

“But we haven’t had dessert yet.”

“Oh … I know.” He grins. “We’ll get to that part soon.” He casually waves at the waiter. “Bill please!”

The Pursuit of Happiness By D.A. Young

When I first heard about this author it was from fellow blogger @musingsirj Now I will be the first to tell you that we agree to disagree on books BUT she did not lead me wrong when told me that author D.A. Young was the truth. Remember the days of getting a fully developed story? When I tell you ladies this author is that and more. Her Men of Whiskey Row series has me hooked and I cannot wait for the next installment.

The latest book in this growing series is The Pursuit of Happiness this is Darby and Ms. Avery story. In the last book ( New Beginnings)  we were left with quite a cliffhanger. This story picks up where that one left off. Let me tell you I absolutely loved this story.
Darby was known as the wild child, the love them and leave them type. At the beginning of this story we get a little flashback on how his past helped shaped the man he is today. I will admit Darby was a playboy but meeting the spicy Ms. Avery has turned his world upside down.

Ms. Avery is a woman wanting to break free of the self-imposed prison she is in. Darby makes her want to be the woman she has always dreamed of becoming but insecurities has stopped her. Darby has a lot of baggage including a few surprises but can Ms. Avery ride it out with him?

I loved that even though these two had their issues as readers we got to see them work through them and develop their relationship. One issue I had is that although this book is a series the author does focus on all the characters and just when you are starting to get into one characters storyline it’s a transition to the next character. Don’t get me wrong I love catching up with all the characters but if this is to be a story about two characters the main focus needs to be on them. Because this series has a few characters each with great stories that need to be told I think the author could benefit from a family tree. With all the anguish between Alexi & ViVi I would love to see more how this storyline was going to play out. ( I know, I know their story is coming, but I am on pins & needles with the bombshell that just dropped). I did love the meeting in the chop shop with three of the main characters. D.A. Young knows how to keep the readers interested and on the edge of their seat. I cannot wait to see how this all will play out. Readers if you are looking for a well told story with depth and layers please one click this author. You will not be disappointed. Please read this book for yourselves and not based on this one review.

Catching Up with CoCo

I have been on a little hiatus. School is out and I can finally get to my summer reading list! I love to review but it becomes daunting at times. Sometimes I just want to read a book and discuss with friends. I know reviews help authors but as a blogger who does review you can get burned out really quickly. And now with Amazon playing games with many of my reviews I just stopped doing it all together. I would post a review for an author and Amazon would come up with some lame excuse of how my review "violated" the rules. Of course I challenged this and the next day the review would be up. But this is an annoyance especially when you have arcs and authors are wanting to see the review posted. I dont know what can be done about this. All I can say is that buying the books shows support as well. Since I am on break I have challenged myself to finally put some reviews up. I have discovered many great authors and found myself rereading books I haven't ever reviewed ( slack I know).

I was in a book funk but let me tell you the funk has been lifted!!!! I recently discovered D.A. Young and let me tell you this author is the truth. I love her way of storytelling and the fact that its a series that builds off the next story. Oh and the fact that you dont have to wait long for the next book to be released. One of my favorite authors Aleatha Romig has a new thriller out. I seriously read this book in one night and look forward to the follow-up. And how could I forget Danielle Allen? Her new book is a great romance especially for a beach day. Reviews will be coming soon on all these books and more!

Mint By Blue Davis

So often in romance stories you get a heroine that plays the damsel in distress role. She has her own but she plays weak when it comes to the hero. This is not the case in Blue Davis book Mint. Lexi is strong and very stubborn. She is a thief with ambition ( I had to chuckle at that). On her latest heist she is going for the lesser known pirate Black Caesar’s gold. The only thing is that she is in Haiti and being a woman no one will help her. Lexi has to swallow her pride and call upon the one man who makes her heart flutter. She has essentially resigned herself to b.o.b. but that can only get a girl so far.

James is the competition. These two for 10 years have been trying to avoid a chemistry that just won’t go away. Lexi unlike the many other women in his life doesn’t fall all over him and give him whatever he wants. A part of James likes the chase but it’s been way too long. He gets the call and like the true “gentlemen” he is resigns to help Lexi.

When these two get together it’s like a force of nature. This book is full of action and adventure. I wouldn’t say it’s heavy on the romance but has just enough spice to keep the reader interested. Please judge this book for yourselves and not based on this one review.
