Claire's 5 Bare Naked Stars Review *****
I really enjoyed The Professor’s Secret. Because I was intrigued by the title I didn’t properly read this book blurb (yes, I’m the person that will buy a book because I like its cover…) I presumed this was a male professor/female student kinda secret, but I was so wrong!
The professor was female, Natasha Carsen, I found it refreshing that the book was written from her POV but this was a refreshingly different book from the get go. I found myself constantly surprised by the way the story unfolded, and lets face it, what more can you ask from in a book?
Her secret wasn’t an illicit affair with a student, it was that she was an erotic writer on the side, something that she knew would affect her career if it came out, so much so that her long term partner doesn’t even know.
Katie’s writing in the respect of portraying Natasha’s internal struggles with her alter-career, her relationship with the very loving Christopher, and her sexual needs is incredibly insightful. It shows Natasha in all her flawed glory whilst allowing the reader to empathise with her dilemma’s.
Yes, he’s a student, but he knows Natasha’s secret and wants Natasha. Adam can show Natasha a side to life that she’s only ever dreamed about, or in her case, written about. He makes her question everything she thought she knew and Natasha’s story makes the reader how they would react, faced with such a crossroads in life…
This book is extremely erotic and sensual; it shows us love and lust and how the lines can blur between the two. The story within the story is genius and it is extremely well written.
If you are looking for something a little different you won’t regret picking up The Professor’s Secret.
