Overview

When Honey Perribow traded in her cowboy boots for stilettos and left her small Kentucky town to attend Columbia University, she never expected to find a dirt-cheap apartment or two new best friends. No stranger to hard work, Honey is completely focused on her medical degree … until she sees newly minted professor Ben Dawson, and her concentration is hijacked. Honey is fascinated by her gorgeous young English professor and vows to find a crack in his tweed-wearing, glasses-clad exterior.

At an off-campus party, an accident lands Ben in a dark, locked closet with a sexy-sounding Southern belle … and their chemistry is explosive. But when he discovers that the girl in his arms is the same beautiful student he can't stop thinking about, he is stunned. Student-teacher relationships are strictly forbidden … yet no matter how hard he tries, Ben can't stay away from Honey.

And when his attempt to fight their attraction nearly ruins the best thing that ever happened to him, Ben will do anything to prove how much he needs her.

About the Author

New York Times bestselling author Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans, and laptop, and drove cross-country to New York City in under four days. Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend, and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.

She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband and daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.

## Another STUNNING read by Tessa Bailey. Wow, this author is so freaking talented. Do yourself a favor and buy as many of her books as you can and start reading pronto. I actually liked this book even more than book one in this series. Ben and Honey had fabulous chemistry and the sex was hot.... so hot. Omg, can this professor talk dirty! Yowza! He did act way older than 25 and I do wish the heroine was older than 19 but that was just my own personal issue. I am so looking forward to Russell's story. Thanks for another glorious book Ms. Bailey.

Can we talk about just how much I love Tessa’s new Broke & Beautiful series? I mean, I love everything she writes, but Tessa writing new adult romance is a magical thing. Need Me combined two of my loves – college fiction and Tessa’s dirty talkin’, smokin’ hot men – in one wonderful little package. It was everything I wanted and more. Where it took me some time to warm up to Roxy in Chase Me, I already really liked Honey at the start. Maybe it’s the fact that I moved to the “big city” from the country just like she did, but we felt like kindred spirits in a way. She was just a real and relatable young woman. I saw a lot of myself in her, which just pulled me into the book that much more. I love all of Tessa Bailey’s men, but Ben just might be my new favorite. I love that whole smart guy, professor with the tweed jacket thing and I LOVE his dirty mouth. Rawr. But more than anything, I love that when he realized he did something wrong, he owned up to it and went all in to try to make it better. It wasn’t ever about his ego. It was about fixing things for Honey – even if it didn’t get them back together. He was willing to sacrifice his feelings for her if it meant making her happy. And that’s about the swooniest thing ever. The heat and chemistry between Honey and Ben was intense from the very beginning. In fact, he’d been thinking about her long before he knew what she even looked like – based on her writing alone. That was the first sign Ben would make a good boyfriend. (You know, book or otherwise.) It’s easy to be attracted to the gorgeous blonde, it’s another entirely to be turned on by someone’s mind without having any idea what they look like. Of course, anything between them was strictly forbidden since he was her professor. Who doesn’t love a good forbidden romance? (I totally do.) But, things are a little more complicated between them because of their supergroup of friends. Ben tries to put some distance between them, but isn’t very successful. And I’m glad, because I *adored* these two together. (Them and their super hot sexy times.) There’s some drama here, of course, but it’s not overly angsty. I love how this Broke & Beautiful series is just a little bit lighter and actual laugh out loud moments. It’s a different side to Tessa’s writing – but yet with her trademark heat, creativity and dirty talkin’ men. It’s the best of ALL worlds. There’s a great supergroup that’s building here as Louis, Roxy, Ben and Honey pair off. I can’t wait for Make Me, when Russell and Abby (hopefully) join the other two couples. Because seriously, this group is great. They all come from different places and backgrounds, but they’re all together now. I enjoy reading about the time they spend together and watching their friendships grow nearly as much as I love the romance and sexy times between each couple. So, so good. I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review.

I really liked both characters, they were very different and had a lot of similarities in what they stood for. I love the dirty talk with sex and Ben was great at itbut there were a couple of things that were said in the heat of the moment that had me thinking "no that wasn't just said". One was super cheesy and two just wrong, dirty talk taken to far. Past that book was great!

Should have been called The Professor and The Child. Stupid concept of a nineteen year old with a twenty six year old. Should have made Honey a matured grad student. More believable.

Feel like the relationship was rushed. They barely knew each other and they re quitting jobs. Regardless I re ad the entire book. So it did have some promise

Why me? Thats what I asked myself reading this book. Ben is 25 but acts 15, really grow up. Honey is sweet but nieve, what does she really expect? The sex scenes are hot and steamy but the story line is a dud. If you love her officer series skip this seried, you will regret it and ask yourself why me?

I really enjoyed this book. The story line was great, the love of family and friends was great, the two main characters Honey and Ben meet and their chemistry is off the charts freakin hot. Ben is a the dirty talking sexy alpha professor and Honey is beautiful, smart, sexy and forbidden. She's his student. Their attraction is instantaneous and grows stronger everytime they see each other. He tries to avoid her and to keep his thoughts and feelings toward her from getting out of control but he fails miserably.I highly recommend this book to everyone.

Did not like Ben - what a whiner.  How many times can you forgive such an idiot.  What an absolutely stupid gift!!  Love Tessa Bailey, but this one is a miss.

191 pages of actual story. The sex scenes are hot...just sayin, those deserve the 3 stars. I wish I had a lit professor like that. But this book is just hot sex scenes, forget about plot. The ending was too abrupt. The author could have spent less time on the woe is me drama scenes and put an ending on that didn't make you say 'where's the rest of it?'
