Yes, Professor by Renae Kaye 2 Stars
Twenty-two-year-old Avery Stewart has a crush on his neighbour. Always attracted to older men, Avery is tantalised by Mr Redding’s professorial looks and obvious obsession with perfection.
When he finally gets the courage to speak to Christopher Redding, Avery manages to get invited back that evening on the pretext of bringing a cake for Christopher’s birthday. But things don’t work out how Avery had planned, and he finds himself sent home with the cake and without any intimacy.
Christopher is everything Avery has ever desired—older, self-assured, dominant, and intelligent. Avery needs someone in his life to take charge—in and out of the bedroom. He wants Christopher to be that man. However, Avery must first convince Christopher to take a chance on him.
Sigh. The lack of communication made me nuts in this book.
Both heroes needed to articulate their thoughts to each other and themselves.
This book is told only from Avery’s point of view and that is a shame. To see Avery as less shallow, it would have been great to hear in Christopher’s own words him falling in love.
There are lots of great moments and ideas here but I needed more talking to each other sooner.
