Overview

It’s hard to break out of a rut. For years, Nathan submerged himself into his job at St. Genevieve’s. He enjoys teaching, hates faculty meetings, loves his science and has committed himself to the cycle of college life. Along the way, he's become resigned to being a gay man in a straight culture, a Jew among Catholics, and single in a world of couples. Then the brilliant Isaac Wolf appears in his classroom. Isaac’s a few years older than his fellow students, gorgeous, self-composed and Jewish.

Isaac has his own secrets, which Nathan finds out at the racy new club downtown where the boys who dance out front can be bought in the back room. Nathan thinks he’s about to get a lap dance, but behind the beaded curtain the man on his knees turns out to be Isaac. Nathan's mind isn't the only thing Isaac blows. Afterward, Nathan can't stop thinking about that night. The question is whether Nathan can let himself fall in love with a student, much less someone with Isaac’s checkered past. Is it too late for a student to teach his professor the true nature of love and respect?

This is a revised, author’s edition of the first Tarnished Souls story, originally published in 2012 by Loose Id.

I look forward to more books in this series, not only to keep up with Nathan and Isaac, who have not yet grown entirely into their potential, but to read about their friends and minor characters. Dev Bentham is an author who develops romantic stories with unusual features that lend a depth to the plot and characters. I enjoy this style of writing very much. (Review from 2012 edition)

Overall I really enjoyed this story. There is a really nice balance between the build up to their relationship over the first part of the book and then the intensity of finally being together in the second. The guys are super hot together (the scene where they have their first condom-free blow job is particularly scorching) and I really liked them as a couple. I thought this was a great story that I would certainly recommend. (Review of 2012 edition)

Dev Bentham lives in Northern Wisconsin with her Boston terrier and Chicago sweetie. She has published short stories, poetry, newspaper articles and academic papers. She’s worked in nearly every profession from waitress to professor to open-water diver and now writes m/m romance out of an intense fascination with love, courage and gender.

    a good read

    I read this, then ordered other ebooks by the author. They are equally as good.

    Great read

    I really enjoyed this book and am glad there are more in the series. Sexy characters with heart, overcoming some angst and great sex. What's not to enjoy?
