Zandy Lynch never planned on going to grad school a virgin. So when her professor father finds her a job abroad as a research assistant the summer before she starts her master's program, she sees her chance. She's got one night in London to lose her V-card to a Mr. Darcy lookalike before she has to join some ancient professor in the country.

Oliver Graeme is not looking forward to having some American co-ed hovering around while he's trying to work, but he owes her father the favor, and besides, his office is an untidy mess of uncatalogued research. He needs the help. Still, he decides to take the edge off his frustration while visiting a colleague in London, and winds up having the sexiest, sweetest night of his life with a stranger, who vanishes in the morning without a trace...

To Zandy's shock when she arrives at Professor Graeme's house a day later, the door isn't opened by a fussy old scholar, but by the wild, passionate man she met in London. Cold and reserved by day, Oliver is ferociously greedy with her at night, and it's not long before Zandy finds herself falling for both versions of him―the aloof professor and the generous, rough lover. The trouble is that summer only lasts so long, and Zandy already has a plane ticket waiting to take her home...

Sierra Simone is a new author to me but an excellent addition to the MISADVENTURES series. This story is steamy, romantic and charming just like the English countryside it is set in.

A brooding, intellectual English man .... umm I cannot get enough! This quick-ish story lured me in the first scene then ended with the perfect romance novel Happily Ever After. I love Sierra's writing style and her romances are packed with steamy yumminess that I always come back for more, hehe! Great read to indulge and live out your professor student romance.

In true Sierra style, you could not guess or anticipate what she would throw at us in this book. The tale begins with Zandy on a mission to get rid of a pesky problem “her virginity” as being a 22-year-old who is about to become a graduate student she felt this was unacceptable.... One thing led to another and needless to say operation devirginised Zandy didn’t go quite according to her plan. Enter Oliver also known as Professor Graeme a long time friend to Zandy’s father he agrees to have Zandy assist in his research over the summer. As you would anticipate what followed was an interesting summer. Grab your copy and check it out for yourself. Expert Zandy blinks up at me in a very endearing manner. “I’m very lucky.” I was going to say pugnacious. Or perhaps pesky.” She laughs, as always, at my surliness, and I melt a little. I want to be brave and happy like her; I want to-I don’t know-reward her, I suppose. Not like a professor rewards a student but how a lover rewards his lover. Vulnerability for vulnerability. Strength for strength.

As the series’ title suggests all of the stories include a ‘mishap’ or an ‘unfortunate incident’ that helps shape and define the main characters involved, and in terms of calamity causing situations, there’s nothing riskier, nothing that could lead to misfortune like a forbidden romance - the secretiveness, the risks, the worry…all of it makes this kind of story exhilarating and intense, because at any moment, the couples’ relationship could be made public and then both of their lives would be irrevocably changed. Zandy Lynch and Oliver Graeme’s initial meeting is one that these two will not soon forget, not just because of the hot and sweaty sex they experience only hours after meeting each other, but because what was supposed to be one-night becomes something altogether different when Zandy finds herself not only working as Professor Graeme’s research assistant but also as his star pupil between the sheets, and boy do these two respect the idea that practice makes perfect;) I’m a huge fan of Sierra Simone’s storytelling and the ease in which the sexy and kinky scenes she crafts seamlessly become necessary facets of the characters’ burgeoning relationship because as Oliver helps Zandy awaken and explore her sensual and sexual self, she allows him to fuse the two sides of himself - the intellectual man and the kinky and generous lover, and it’s because they seem to understand what each other needs despite their age difference and their unique characteristics that makes them perfect for each other regardless of other people’s prejudicial thoughts, the authoritative position he has over her, and the fact that she has a plane ticket to head back home at the end of the summer. Misadventures with a Professor is full of kinky goodness delivered in a fast-paced and entertaining story; Sierra Simone fans will adore this book because it showcases what readers have grown to love about her writing - a solid story line with sizzling and sensual sex scenes that illustrate what the characters come to mean to each other and why they can’t get enough of one another’s minds, bodies and hearts. 4.5 Poison Apples

Zandy has one night in London before she starts her internship and she intends to put it to good use to find a man to be her “first”. She has not been saving herself for any particular reason however she has begun to feel like life is passing her by and that is about to end tonight. Oliver is in the city visiting a colleague when he runs into Zandy. He turns down her very attractive offer but when she decides to go find someone else to take care of her problem his alpha side emerges, and all bets are off. A steamy night ensues, and she is gone before he is awake, and they never expect to see each other again. Surprise! It turns out that Zandy’s new boss is Oliver and he is not the stodgy old professor she imagined him to be. Let the lessons begin! These two are perfect together. Her feisty fiery personality is exactly what this dominating alpha needs and the chemistry between them is off the charts.

4 Sinful Stars! Review by Nancy Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog A steamy fast-paced novella, Misadventures With A Professor is an inst-love between a professor and his assistant. Sierra Simone delivered a scorching hot romance. Oliver and Zandy were only supposed to happen once, a chance encounter. They accidentally crossed paths and didn’t expect to see each other again but fate had a different plan. When Oliver and Zandy find themselves working together, sparks start flying. They share an intense chemistry and find that they can’t keep their hands off each other. Despite how different their personalities are, they are absolutely perfect for each other. Their love is instant and delightfully sinful. Beautifully written, scorching, sassy, and delightful, Sierra Simone delivered a page-turning novella. She upped the hotness with this book. It will have you blushing like a teenager. As someone who is not particularly a fan of cliches, this was just right.

when zandy meets oliver and propositions him in the rain, it's one heck of a super-sexy meet-cute. virginal zandy has no idea that the guy she's inviting back to her room will end up being her summer employer. she has no idea that the good girl submissiveness that is innately hers will poke at all his dom hot professor buttons. there is some angst amidst all the sexy when zandy worries that oliver will always compare her to his former flame and he worries that his twisted desires aren't something she'll want long term. this was hot and enjoyable and a super quick read. if you've read all the misadventures series, misadventures with a professor is a solid entry. **misadventures with a professor published on november 6, 2018. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of bare naked words in exchange for my honest review.

Bows at Sierra Simone's feet. I knew I wanted to read this book. When you throw Sierra Simone's name and Professor together. You know you are going to get a hot steamy read. And she did not let me down. This was a quick read with a whole lot of kink. I loved Oliver's broody, dominate possessive, sweet yet vulnerable self. And Zandy was quirky, sweet, smart, and determined. They were perfect together. And the chemistry just oozed off the pages. I found myself laughing out loud at times and even tearing up a couple times. Simone's stories seem to take on a life of there own once you start reading. It's hard not to get lost in her words. This is definitely a toe curling read.

I want to play Professor games right now. I would be so good at them because I’m such a good girl and I always, always wanted to be a librarian. Zandy Lynch is my new Sierra Simone bestie. Ivy was mine because I’m a Yorkshire wildcat. Molly was mine because Irish ancestory. Greer was mine because- hello, she’s got Ash and Embry. Zandy ticks all the boxes on my checklist. She loves books, the dustier the better, she loves a list and a spreadsheet, she loves organising and tidying. SEE, besties! And Oliver with his multi colour eyes! He’s the descendant of a cad and a wildcat! Of course he’s hot. Oh my word. He needs to see my little watch. He would love my watch and I could be his good girl. Flipping Nora! I loved this book. It might have some clichés but damn it is sexy and enjoyable. By the way Chatsworth, the Peak District and Bakewell are under visited parts of the U.K. because they aren’t fancy London but they are well worth a visit. Spanky professors are ace!

Ms. Simone knows how to write the down and dirty! And she does it oh so well. This is the story of Oliver and Zandy.  It's fast paced, adventurous and is naughty in all the right ways! They don't have, what you would call a "normal" relationship.  But hey, "normal" is a setting on a dryer.  Who are we to claim what is normal or not.  Their relationship works for them and that's what makes this story all the better. Zandy is of a intellectual mind.  She is analytical and thinks things through, almost to the point of detriment to herself. Oliver is the epitome of an English professor.  But he has a hidden side of him that really loves Zandy.  Unfortunately he has also thought that his hidden side should stay hidden and Zandy brings it to the light and shows him that what they have together is perfection. Ms. Simone writing really brings you into the story, into her world and you will be thanking her for it! If you are looking for a fast paced, down and dirty.  Look no further!!

My favorite so far among the Misadventures book series This book is beyond filthy and delicious to read. It is my favorite misadventures book series. It is a fun read too. I loved reading story of innocent woman losing their purity. Not only this book is filthy but a book full of dreams and making it come true. This book is a story of letting go and finding true love. I really enjoyed reading this book.

Tantalizing and sinful! My oh my are my cheeks still red from blushing. Ms. Simone outdid herself with this steamy novel. Zandy and Oliver are a match made in academia and kinky heaven. The budding librarian is over in England to get some experience, and while she's expecting a stuffy old friend of her dads, she never imagined it would be her sexy, supposed-to-be-one-night-stand in London who took more than her precious v-card. This was a quick and easy read that made me both smile and blush. I wish there was a little more meat to the story, but overall another great addition to both the Misadventures collection and Sierra Simone's list. Can't wait for more of both!
