    Sloan Parker freebie from ARe This is the story of David, a student, and Michael, his instructor David has been in love with Michael for the two years that he s been studying, and is under the impression that Michael no longer even wants to be friends with him as he is arranging for another instructor tutor to take over David s thesisbut he couldn t be further from the truth Recommended.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Not nearly as good as Parker s More Than Just A Good Book, which I loved.The Plot A Lesson In Truth is a first time sex scene between an advisor and the advisee he informs he has voluntarily transferred to another advisor The advisee, who has a huge crush on his advisor and thought it was mutual, is devastated Thenthe two have sex, which the advisee assumes is break up sex for the relationship they didn t officially have But his advisor clears everything up, proposes to him, and all is Not nearly as good as Parker s More Than Just A Good Book, which I loved.The Plot A Lesson In Truth is a first time sex scene between an advisor and the advisee he informs he has voluntarily transferred to another advisor The advisee, who has a huge crush on his advisor and thought it was mutual, is devastated Thenthe two have sex, which the advisee assumes is break up sex for the relationship they didn t officially have But his advisor clears everything up, proposes to him, and all is well.The Reason for my Rating The story could ve hadbuild up to the sex the advisor s proposal at the end seemed to come from nowhere, as despite their closeness, he and the student hadn t actually dated before this scene and the main character s perpetual confusion when it was clear to me that his advisor wasn t breaking up with him, merely transferring him to avoid ethical conflict between them and the school, was really frustrating I feel like the premise for this story was a cliched plot device meant to yank the reader s heartstrings even through the sex, then fix it with a proposal and the revelation that all was a misunderstanding Unfortunately, as it was clear to me from the beginning that all was a misunderstanding, the story couldn t work for me the way it should.My Conclusion The writing itself was fine, but because of the above issues, I couldn t enjoy this story I ll still tryby Parker, though Despite the problems with this story s premise, her writing mechanics and style are good, and I m curious about what she can do with a story that plays to her writing strengths

    This is a sweet, very passionate piece about a longing for love finally fulfilled Even though it isof a long scene, the characters and their emotions pulled me in from the start, and it was quite clear who they are and how much they mean to each other.The threat of losing everything loomed large for David, who immediately assumes the worst when Michael, his student adviser, passes his thesis to another professor Even though they never had a relationship, due to their status as student an This is a sweet, very passionate piece about a longing for love finally fulfilled Even though it isof a long scene, the characters and their emotions pulled me in from the start, and it was quite clear who they are and how much they mean to each other.The threat of losing everything loomed large for David, who immediately assumes the worst when Michael, his student adviser, passes his thesis to another professor Even though they never had a relationship, due to their status as student and adviser, the friendship they have built always felt liketo David.Michael is doing the right thing, the only thing he can ethically do, by handing over the professional part of their relationship, David s thesis, to someone else While he is older, and waited long enough to be sure about his love for David, he is no less passionate when they finally do come together He s just been hiding it better If you like short, hot reads, give this one a try It s free and a god sample of Sloan s writing style

    This is the second FREE short story from Sloan Parker that I read, after More Than Just a Good Book She does have one released novel, but it s an MMM and I a bit leary to try books that state upfront that it will be an MMM Well, back to this one, I think it s a lovely and sweet short story While myself, as a reader, already know the real reason why Michael tells David that he does not want to be his advisor any but since the story is written from David s point of view using 1st pe This is the second FREE short story from Sloan Parker that I read, after More Than Just a Good Book She does have one released novel, but it s an MMM and I a bit leary to try books that state upfront that it will be an MMM Well, back to this one, I think it s a lovely and sweet short story While myself, as a reader, already know the real reason why Michael tells David that he does not want to be his advisor any but since the story is written from David s point of view using 1st person narrative , I can still enjoy his misunderstanding and feel the sympathy for him Because I know how much David loves Michael and that it breaks his heart when he thinks Michael is cutting off ties after they shared a kiss the ending might feel like it comes out of nowhere, but not really a big niggle for me

    A very sweet, sexy, read that was far too short I would have loved learning a littleabout David and Michael, but in the end, nothing mattered but what they learned.
