I received this book from the author for an honest review. Totally not what I expected...and I mean that in a good way! By the synopsis I honestly expected a story about a whole lot of kinky sex with an older woman and younger man, because lets face it a lot of books today are all about the sex...not that that's a bad thing ;) Well hello...this books has a whole lot of substance! Something you can really sink your teeth into....could not put it down for the life of me! This is a wonderfully written book about a woman trying to better herself after her twit of a husband screwed around on her. She wants her children to be proud of her, simple as that. She meets and befriends a much younger, very cute and sweet guy in one of her classes. Fight it though she does, she is drawn to him and what ensues is a full on caring and sharing, mutually beneficial relationship with some interesting lessons for our inexperienced young friend! It's not all sunshine and roses with some of the nasty comments from people about their age difference, but it's exactly what each of them need...for now. Will it last or will it run its course? Can't wait to see what happens in book 2!

A fun and flirty read, this book was quite unique with its setup and the roles the characters played. Being the same age as Alex, I put myself in her shoes as she traversed each and every obstacle that came along with dating a younger guy, and there seemed to be many – Aside from the big age gap there was the fact that Alex was a mother, both Mason and Alex’s parent’s concern, Alex’s douche bag ex, and then of course the scrutiny of everyone else around them. In the beginning I had to wonder what Mason really wanted from Alex. Was it a thrill for him to be with an older woman, to flaunt the idea of being with her, especially with all the attention she got from the other younger guys in college. But their relationship grew into something much more than just two people having fun and Mason seemed to be really genuine. This led me to wondering about Alex’s intentions. Was she in it just for the thrill of being with a younger guy and having fun, or was there something more. As stated before, I enjoyed the role reversal in this story. There are so many male dominant books and it was refreshing to read a story where the woman was the dominant, even if it was more for fun and experimentation. The ending of this book left me with many questions and I’m eager to see what is going to happen next.

Alexandra (Alex) Rose is a thirty-two year old divorced mother of two sons, who decides to return to college to complete her degree. I her Sociology class, Alex is paired up for an assignment with twenty-one year old classmate Mason Brooks. What starts out as a classmate friendship develops into something more when they become attracted to each other. Alex and Mason embark on a sexual journey that is anything but casual ... but it's supposed to be just a fling ... or is it?! What I Really Learned In College is an entertaining erotic romance that features an older woman - younger man sexual relationship. Author Addison Winters weaves a steamy tale that easily draws the reader into Alex and Mason's friends to lovers relationship. I loved that Alex plays the role of sexual teacher with a touch of domination in the bedroom, it's not often that you see that in erotic romance stories, so I found it refreshing, enjoyable, and rather titillating. I also enjoyed the intertwining storyline of how Alex's family, friends, and ex-hubby react to her relationship with Mason, and how she handles the variety of reactions from them. The story has a surprising twist when Mason's single father Hayden enters into the picture, but alas ... the author leaves the reader with a cliffhanger ending that leaves them wanting more, only to make them wait for Alex and Mason's story to continue in the second book in the series.

What I Really Learned in College gets 4.5 stars from me. From the synopsis you know Alex is a 30 something divorced mom with two kids who's decided to go back to college. She is paired up with the gorgeous 20 year old she sits beside in class for a project and they become friends. Reluctantly she agrees to show up at a club for his 21st birthday and this is where the fun begins. While Alex is unsure and tries to keep her distance, the sexy, well built, completely trainable Mason gets under her skin and bam we have a full on cougar on our hands. They both have told each other I love you but Alex is contemplating using Mason for her project. This is the only reason I can't give it 5 stars, until we get the next book an see where this goes, the whole I love you but in the next breath she's training him and keeping a journal of his progress to possibly be used for her project. That bugged me maybe a bit too much. And the end, sadly I can't tell you anything without giving too much away and I don't do spoilers, lets just say I'm impatiently awaiting book #2 in this series

What a refreshing change from Alpha Males! I really enjoyed this story and at times had to remind myself Mason is only 21 (yes, a few times I wanted to smack him around). Alex, at 32 has 2 children and a douche for an ex-husband. She meets Alex when she decides to do something for herself and go back to school to get her degree. Soon they spend time together helping each other with school work and Alex finally gives in to the draw she feels for Mason. But being young, Mason has a lot to learn in the bedroom. And Alex wants to be his teacher! Follow their journey as they face down the snide remarks, nasty people (family included), and issues that come along with age differences in relationships. Can’t wait for #2!!!!! I received this book from the author for an honest review.

I'm finding that authors are challenging my ability to say that I don't usually care for the heroine's in romance. Typically, I'm all about the alpha males. Maybe it's because Alex is closer to my age and more self-assured that I can relate to who her than other heroines in other novels who are typically in their early twenties and fumbling around for a sense of self. Alex is a smart cookie who shows she can balance all the men in her life, even her arrogant ex-husband. With her two sons in tow, she embarks on a journey back to college and an unconventional (and unintentional) relationship with a fellow student.  A little shy of his 21 birthday when they meet, Alex is understandably hesitant to enjoy the easy company that Mason offers. He's a cute kid and she struggles to keep it that way. Unfortunately, that isn't what Mason wants. More importantly, it's not what Alex really wants either.  The problem is their age difference. At least it's a problem in Alex's world. No one can see past the fact that Mason is 21 and Alex, while older than him, is capable of having a relationship with anyone she chooses. I found the person the most offensive in that regard was her mother. Ugh. It's one thing for a parent not to like your choices, but her mother seemed to be going the extra mile to cause a riff where there shouldn't be one. Her dad, he gets a round of applause from me. And Danny, the ex, throw rocks at him. He was never endearing and even less so when I read how he really treated his boys. Yuck. The romance between Mason and Alex was sweet with a side of sexy. I wish there were more moments where it was just about the two of them. It seemed like a lot of other stuff took up so much real estate in the book.  The sexy bits began and ended so quickly that I didn't feel like I had a moment to really appreciate them.  The ending kind of threw me. Without giving it away, I don't see how the situation is even a debate. Even if Mason isn't Alex's idea of happily ever after, which is based on valid concerns, the option on the table isn't a viable option. Not if I'm supposed to keep my respect for her as a person. And this isn't just my view of her as a woman. It would be the same if it was a man. The "excuse" cited by her friend isn't a good one. Anyone basing their life decisions on the plot of a Hollywood movie shouldn't be allowed to make adult decisions.  Those are my only two gripes. As a whole, the book was a quick and easy read. I'd recommend this to someone looking for a sizzling afternoon read. *This book was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review.*
