While this book is part of a series it can be read as a stand-alone. Honestly I haven’t read the first two books in the series but will definitely be picking them up after reading Addy And The Smart Guy.
When I originally read the premise for the book I literally rolled my eyes because the whole teacher/student thing is kind of being overdone in the New Adult genre but this book was different and I am so glad I read it. Once I picked it up I could not put it down.
My only complaints are 1. Where the heck is the epilogue?? I need to know what happens to Addy and Grey 2. Addy got on my nerves a little because she was very quick to be forgiving. I get that she was in love with Grey but she really could have made him work for it a little harder.
I give this book 4.5 out of 5 stars. The only reason I’m not giving it 5 stars is that some of the scenes jumped ahead too fast and before we could really grasp what was happening it was already the next day and I really would have liked more resolution to the story.
If it weren’t for her best friends, Zoey and Maya, Addy Hart would be a prudish, uptight Barbie doll. Thankfully, through love and persistence, they’ve helped introduce her to her wild side. Unfortunately, even her wild side doesn’t have the courage to go after the one thing she wants more than life itself.
Dr. Greyson McDaniel has resisted his lovely teaching assistant for three years, now. He has no intentions of endangering his job or her reputation. But as spring break approaches, he’s seized with a wicked impulse. He invites her to his mountain retreat for a week. Just one week of intense escape.
What they both discover after their affair is that a week isn’t nearly enough. But as much as they long to be together, there are obstacles in their way, and the ethics of student-teacher relationships are the least of their problems. When she realizes how deeply rooted Grey’s commitment issues are, Addy begins to despair of ever having a happy ending with him. But Addy’s love might be just what’s needed to free him of his past.
