Hattie Greene was the typical quiet, nerdy good girl at HKCU...until she wasn't. After a lapse in judgment and one vulnerable night spent with Samson Campbell, Ph.D., she's gone from being teacher's pet to professor's mistress.

Claire, her nosy roommate, has a built-in scandal detector, and her vindictive ex Cameron would love to bring her down. With her entire future on the line, Hattie must find a way to come out on the other side.

Hattie Green is your typical college student who wants to succeed and get good grades. She is the one who studies instead of parties. She is not the type to get involved in an affair with a professor, but that is exactly what happens. I had my concerns thinking that this would be similar to other stories about affairs with the professor, but Ms. Ard expertly twists the story and nothing is as it seems. Throughout the reader is guessing what happened to both Hattie and her roommate Claire. Why is Claire so promiscuous and what happened to Hattie over Thanksgiving? What will happen next? Why is Hattie so concerned that Cameron is the new TA? Why did the old TA leave in the middle of the semester? Again, nothing is as it seems. I cannot wait to indulge in the second book of the series.
