This is the second book September Roberts has put out there and I have to say, WOW! Sophomore attempts are usually lack luster and this one was anything but. It is a sweet story hidden in a taboo story.
James Baker is drawn to a pretty girl he spots in a club, and lucky for him, she is just as interested. Kate Rhodes is a studious, beautiful young co-ed who sees this incredibly hot guy in a club and makes a very bold move to head home with him. Little does she know that this sexy hot guy is her new Chemistry Professor. The night they share is incredibly hot and one they both hope can be repeated, that is until they show up to the same classroom and find that one is a student and the other is the teacher. This is not good.
There is a lot of lack of any communication between these two lovers and things go from being tense to being unbearable. Feelings of betrayal and deceit are formed in their minds about one another without really talking it through, and yet there is this undeniable passion and draw between them. I loved the chemistry between them, even in their worst moments.
We see Kate grow up and make a huge life decision about what she wants for her future, and not just in regards to James. We also see James open himself up to the possibility of love again. When you find out his back story it all makes more sense. This book is very steamy and yet incredibly sweet too. Which makes the title absolutely perfect!
I give this 5 lipsticks! September blew me away!
