Former tennis player Easton Bradbury is trying to be the best teacher she can be, trying to reach her bored students and trying to forget her past. What brought her to this stage in her life isn’t important. She can’t let it be. But now one parent-teacher meeting may be her undoing…
Meeting Tyler Marek for the first time makes it easy for Easton to see why his son is having trouble in school. The man knows how to manage businesses and wealth, not a teenage boy. Or a young teacher, for that matter, though he tries to. And yet…there is something about him that draws Easton in—a hint of vulnerability, a flash of attraction, a spark that might burn.
Wanting him is taboo. Needing him is undeniable. And his long-awaited touch will weaken Easton’s resolve—and reveal what should stay hidden…
Who knew politics could be this hot?! Freshly graduated teacher Easton falls for one of her student’s dad, who also happens to be in the running to become the next state’s Senator. Let me list all the ways this could go wrong:
- Dating your student’s dad is frowned upon by pretty much everyone
- Christian already hates his dad for being absent all his life, doing the nasty with his teacher is not a way to redeem yourself
- There is a twelve-year age difference that will invite public criticism
- In the other way around, dating your son’s teacher, while you’re running for Senator is just asking for bad polls
And while those are, I feel, legit concerns, when it comes to matters of the heart, reason, and sanity are rarely involved. I definitely loved the forbidden aspect of their romance. It also invited them to be creative, and Tyler Marek has one dirty mind.
There is that fear of getting caught, but also that fear of wanting more. ‘Cause when feelings start getting involved, it only becomes more complicated. That push, and pull between Tyler and Easton was quite interesting. Neither of them was looking for this, it wasn’t planned out to become more, though now it’s impossible to deny.
Tyler is quite an interesting character. He owns up to the mistakes he’s made with his son, and seeks to move forward from that, which I admire him for. Easton has her own troubled past that she has a hard time letting go off, though slowly but surely she’s getting there.
Misconduct was an amazing story I finished in one breath. The dynamic between the characters was off the charts, inside and outside of the bedroom. The depth of the characters, and the outside drama is what made it more than just a forbidden romance. Good plot development, character complexity, and easy flowing dialogue, I loved it.
