Enjoyable story, but struggles with the teacher/former student aspect ...

ADULT EDUCATION has an interesting premise. I mean I don’t remember ever lusting after any of my college professors, but I am sure there are some fine looking ones somewhere out there. Just not any that I ever came across. Still, the idea of being infatuated with your professor and fantasizing about allowing something to happen is viable. More so because nothing ever happened and now Miranda finds herself back on the very same campus about five years later. Her memories of Stefan remain fresh in her mind as the one that got away. Even though he never did … get away, that is. Consequently she finds herself wandering around campus, having arrived to her new temp job too early.
Miranda finds herself in a position to observe a college couple in the midst of a passionate encounter and a teeny bit of bondage. Of course, the entire time she is secretly watching the couple, she is wishing she was experiencing the same things. Apparently Miranda has a propensity toward submission and wants a strong partner to master her. But her fantasy doesn’t seem to have any potential takers and remains something she craves, but never speaks of.
ADULT EDUCATION is a fast read at around 40 pages. It will satisfy the reader who likes the characters to get down and dirty in a hurry. I have down and dirty in 30 going through my head. ACK! Neither has much substance and there is no character depth to speak of. The reader is provided with enough back ground to know basically everything I explained about their past. They then waste no time in jumping on the sex train and picking up where they … ummm … never left off from, except in their minds.
I think my biggest problem with this story is that the roles should have been reversed making Miranda the aggressor and Stefan the submissive. With Stefan as the aggressor and the talk of mastering Miranda, I was not able to separate the teacher/student component and that somewhat soured the story for me. I don’t want to think about a teacher mastering his student sexually. But Miranda showing the master some new tricks? Well, that would have been easier for me to read and far more enjoyable. Paired with the fact that 40 pages is really hard to pull off effectively, this story just didn’t do it for me. And some of you may wonder why I bother writing reviews like this. To those who wonder, I say ~ I know from personal experience that being honest in a review, even though I did not care for it, has brought new readers to an author. Maybe I didn’t care for a component to a story, but there are others out there who would like to read a story based on what I disliked because it is a like for them.
But like I said, as a quick read to pass a bit of time? It does the job. I would recommend this story for a reader who does not have a lot of time ~ maybe waiting for a flight to take off at the airport ~ and doesn’t want to invest a lot in the story. Basically, you want to read a quick story with some hot sex and then move on. This is that story. And for a lot of you … hey, you know who you are … don’t act like you don’t like skipping ahead to the smokin’ sex scenes … yeah … YOU! Think of this story as THE sex scene. No skipping required.
